Choosing the right estate agent is key to selling your property.
High street estate agents have a wealth of experience within your local area. Your agent will only typically get paid if the sale goes through, so the incentive to complete the deal is significant. Your agent is also able to deal with any potential buyer and has the expertise to get the best possible price in a suitable time frame. The agent can also deal with solicitors and other mortgage lenders to facilitate the sale.
Online agents - while high street estate agents will usually charge you a percentage of your property’s selling price, online estate agents generally charge fixed fees. You'll often have to pay up front, regardless of whether they end up selling your home or not. Paying a fixed fee also reduces the agent’s incentive to sell your property for the highest possible price.
Hybrid agents - a mix of the flexibility and innovation of online agents, all with the knowledge, expertise and experience of local estate agents.
Property Portals – ask your agent where your property will be advertised.
