Why choose a traditional estate agent rather than an online agent?
Online estate agents are growing in popularity mainly thanks to their cheap fees, but would you trust them to handle possibly your most important financial transaction?
Personal service?
An online agent is faceless. There will be no local office. You will need to deal with the company remotely, generally by email or telephone call.
Online agents often have little or no knowledge of the local Salisbury market, recent sales in your area or any possible new developments.
Time consuming
In most cases you will need to conduct viewings yourself. You may even need to negotiate a price yourself. Once a sale has been agreed the hard work begins – you may find you have to do all the chasing from offer to completion; checking the chain and talking to lawyers.
Around 30% of sales agreed never reach completion for various reasons. Traditional agents do not receive a fee until the sale is complete; it is in their best interest to work very hard to secure the sale of your property. Most online agents will take an upfront fee that is non-refundable whether your sale completes or not.
So when considering who you would like to use to sell your property, remember cheap is not always best.
