As a proudly independent high street agent, we are always interested to see how others are performing, particularly the online agents that have become much more popular in recent times. However, it is very difficult to find information on how many properties they actually sell.
Did you know that Online agents charge an upfront fee, which is payable even if the property does not sell?
We will charge you a very competitive commission on a ‘no sale, no fee’ basis and will do all the work for you.
However, we understand that some homeowners want something a bit different and maybe a mix up of an online and traditional agency. As an independent agent, we work with you to come up with the best package possible to suit your needs, we aren’t tied to corporate spreadsheets and flow charts, we appreciate everyone is different.
Did you know that half of Online agents listings remain unsold?
Research carried out by getagent.co.uk found that around half of online agent listings hadn’t sold after the 14-month period. Purplebricks completed on just 57% of the listings from January 2016, as of February 2017. Housesimple completed on 58%, while Emoov and Tepilo were even lower with 51% and 48% completion rates. And for this, you have already paid them a fee!
So, a company called getagent.co.uk has taken matters into their own hands with interesting results!
