What exactly makes selling with an online estate agent a better course of action than sticking with the traditional route of selling? Well, there are a number of ways in which online is a better option for you, and they all serve to get you a better deal on your property in far less time. We’ve put together this article to show you just some of the ways that making the switch to online is the best choice, and we hope that you’ll see that you don’t have to put up with the price and inconvenience of traditional agents anymore.
The first reason why online is a better option, and the one which takes away most of the hassle, is the fact that we don’t include any hidden costs and fees in our pricing. Operating on a policy of honesty, we only charge an upfront fee of £595- you won’t have to spend a penny more for anything. This is in stark contrast to traditional agents, who add an average of 1.6% of your sale price to their final bill just for the privilege of signing the paperwork for the sale. They also often charge extra just for the initial valuation, which is something we are strongly against. By choosing to sell with us, you’re saving yourself money right from the start.
Traditional agents are also behind the times in the way that they advertise your property. People no longer look in a high street window when they want to buy a house, but rather do all their research online. Traditional agents frequently fail to make the most of this valuable tool for making a quicker sale, but luckily we are here to help. We make sure all our customers get their property listed on the top property sites, so that everyone can see just what you have to offer. You’ll soon have buyers flocking to you!
That’s not the only way that we are ahead of traditional agents, though. We understand that buyers like to feel comfortable when they are viewing a property, and that their questions are being answered honestly and with a good amount of local knowledge. This isn’t something your average estate agent will do during a viewing, which is why we arrange for the owner to conduct their own viewings. By doing this, you’ll be able to show all that your property has to offer, and encourage viewers that this is the right property for them.
We’re even ahead of traditional agents in the prices we achieve for our customers. Whereas other agents only achieve an average of 96% of your asking price, we manage an impressive 99%- and that’s without any additional fees deducted. By coming to us to sell your property, you can feel safe that you’ve made the right choice, and that you’re getting the best deal possible. We keep everything open and honest, so that both buyer and seller can see they are being treated fairly and with respect. With us, you can sell your property for more money, and with much less stress.
