  • online estate agents

    Hello all,

    Anyone used any of the many online estate agents that have cropped up? If so, any feedback (good or bad) or tips about using them?

    In this here part of north-west London, two 'traditional' agents have quoted 2.5% plus VAT which would be the best part of 7k when all is said and done. A lot of money. If I can reasonably do the same job for a few hundred pounds, then infinitely preferable.

    Cheers for any advice

    Hi Mike,

    Yes Estate Agents asks for a fortune, I would like to suggest you (As you Stated) Yes you should try Private Property Selling website what you may call Online Estate Agents. You can put an advertise of your property on the private property selling website for a fraction of amount, less than £30 a month. The good thing is when you put the advert the host website will do the rest of the work for you. I think..This is not my personal experience.

    One of my friend used this and found very helpful. I can state the site he used to post his property. He used The Little House Company

    You can give it a try and see what happens.

    Best of luck

      Ok to do this if you:

      a) have a realistic idea of the value of your property; and
      b) know what to ask potential buyers about the chain they are in and/or their ability to obtain their required mortgage; and
      c) understand the buying and selling process sufficiently to make sure the transaction goes through.

      Online estate agents rarely can do this. Good high street ones can.

        Youb can geta valaution for your home using Zoopla or many many others online. You acn ebven get a local estate agent to valuae your home fro free. You don't need to appoint them! Simples!

        Online agents save you a small fortune.
        You are not giving money to a greedy lair in a sharp suit.
        Your home will be marketed on a nationwide basis not just locally.
        You are in control

        You need to do the work (details, viewings) , such as it is.

              There are agents out there who offer full service estate agency but for a sensible fee.
