When deciding on which estate agents you’re going to use while selling your home, there are a lot of things that you must consider. Firstly, are they affordable? Do they have a fast success rate? Are they going to give you the best chances of selling your property? Amongst other questions, these need to be answered to ensure that your house move is a smooth and pleasant process.
Continue reading this blog post for a comparison of online estate agents VS in person. By reviewing the
following information, we hope that you have a clearer understanding of what both versions of this service
can deliver you with while selling your home.
Firstly, you need to decide how much involvement you want with the entire process. If you are choosing a standard estate agent, you will need to continuously visit their branch in order to stay informed with the progress of your sale. The estate agents will contact you prior to viewings, as well as if you are being given any offers. However, a lot of the admin and discussion is done in the back end; therefore, until it gets up and running, you will have to go through your estate agents to communicate with potential buyers.
Here at Online Estate Agents, as an online estate agent service, we give our clients the option of having complete access to communications with prospective buyers, as well as management tools for viewings, offers and several other features. You’re at the forefront of your sales, with our 24/7 support.
Additionally, having to visit an estate agent’s branch, as well as liaise with the supporting parties involved within a house sale such as the progressor and valuer can be time-consuming, as well as inconvenient to do.
On the other hand, using an online estate agent such as ourselves keeps the majority of your communications digital. Yes, there will be the occasional time that you’ll need to organise an appointment with someone, including letting the valuer visit your property in order to estimate its pricing. But, for the most part, you can contact each party through your online portal.
Also, all you need to do is log on to your online portal, and you can access all of the information that you
need, as opposed to having to contact your estate agents, in the hope that they are available and can
assist you in your query.
In most cases, using an online estate agent as an alternative to the generic kind will keep your costs down. With a high street estate agent, you are simply instructing them to sell your home; however, we offer packages that combine the traditionalism of selling your home with digital technology.
Because of this, affordability in both time and money is prevalent. Costs spent on staff, shops and company cars are non-existent, as well as the need to be available for many appointments that might be out of your way.
High Street estate agents usually charge you a percentage of the property price, working on commission-based terms. Here at Online Estate Agents, you can either pay monthly, a single up-front payment or you could pay a percentage upon completion on a no-sale, no-fee basis.
This gives our clients the advantage of choosing a package to suit their situation, as well as be aware that
they are paying a fixed price, as opposed to a price that they aren’t fully aware of until the sale goes through.
Due to one of our packages being on a no-sale, no-fee basis too, you can stay rest assured that you’re
being delivered with a dedicated service and one that won’t charge you if your home sale isn’t successful, as opposed to high street estate agents that charge you for appointments.
We hope that we have shed light on online estate agents VS in person estate agents. Here at Online Estate Agents, we pride ourselves in providing our clients with a still fully-inclusive service that ensures that you’re delivered with the best price possible. Your assigned agent will ensure that your property is being showcased on the most prestigious property sites, as well as taking care of any communications with potential buyers and supporting parties unless you choose to take the reigns.
You will be given 24-hour support during your experience with us. And by accessing your personal dashboard, you will be the first to receive feedback from viewings, as well as be notified of any offers. Head over to our website for the full information on our packages, as well as the ways that we can assist you when selling your home.
