||Tailor-made, flexible, customised service that focuses on your needs. Includes everything from listing to buyer qualification, negotiation and specialist conveyancers.
||Often just an online house sales listing, leaving you to handle everything else. Check out online estate agent reviews to know more.
||Paid after you complete and you have the money from your sale.
||Paid upfront. Online estate agents have no incentive to fight for a better price for your property because they've already got your money!
||No fees until you sell, and a free valuation. No upfront estate agency fees.
||Listing fees and upfront estate agency fees to be paid even if the property never sells.
|For Sale Boards
||Full contact details, including mobile-friendly local numbers, so buyers can call immediately.
Enough staff to make sure someone handles calls about your property.
|Rarely more than a phone number on the board. Many boards have no contact information of the online estate agents.
||Website designed to make finding more information and contacting us easier.
||Website designed to reduce staff costs and push clients to use the big online portals for online house sales, rather than make contact easier.
||No extra costs or fees for selling your property.
||Most add fees as online house sale progresses, increasing their headline-grabbing rates significantly.
||We ensure you get the best price by giving you a qualified, experienced valuer and a qualified negotiator who contacts sellers and negotiates thousands extra.
We work hard to get you a lot more on your selling price!
|Cheaper for a reason: you end up paying more for online house sales, just like when you buy a cheap car, a cheap holiday or a cheap meal.
||One transparent fee, paid on success.
||Repeat fees if your property is not sold in a set period. They fail, you pay more.
||Realistic market prices to sell the property fast.
||Little or no help with pricing. Online estate agents' first objective is the upfront fees, leaving you to guess and potentially under-sell.
|Practising What They Preach
||Superstar negotiators who deliver excellent results. We will fight tooth and claw to get the best deal for you on the timescale you specify.
||Typically survive on investments, so your sale is more an annoyance than anything else. Rarely any real interest in helping you sell.
||24 hours a day, every day.
||Limited telephone support, replaced by a lot of online form filling and chat boxes.
||Huge reach, creating remarkable success.
||Often small, unpopular, insignificant and offer limited coverage.
||Massive marketing that can be seen by over 30 million UK residents on an ever-growing number of sites.
||Many online estate agents in the UK cannot use the best, premium online portals to promote your property
||All checked and qualified so there are no time-wasters and no chains.
||Everyone, regardless of whether they're really interested, just window shopping or are stuck in a chain. Easy online booking adds to this problem.
