Traditional Values...Modern Approach

Modern technology & the internet have changed the way we buy and sell houses – for the better but sometimes worse.  As the housing market continues to improve, the number of ‘estate agents’ are increasing, making it a minefield for anyone thinking of selling their home.  So how do you choose and what should you look out for?

Online Estate Agents...

Online estate agents can sound like they offer wonderful value for money – but do they?  Most charge a fixed fee which can seem attractive, but with no incentive to get their client the best possible price for their home, they can be tempted to recommend the first offer that comes along.   Their full fee is also payable up front, meaning they get paid whether they sell your house or not!
The Valuation...

Some valuers will place a higher value on your property tempting you to place your house on the market with them – but is this price really achievable?  Will it encourage potential buyers to view your house?  Inevitably it will lead you to have to reduce the price after a few months due to a lack of interest, when had it been realistically valued, could have been already sold.


Cut price fees can be so tempting, but unfortunately, they can be too good to be true, as so often the service you receive will reflect this, which isn’t ideal when selling such a valuable asset.  The list of what can go wrong throughout the process of selling your home can be daunting – but not with the right agent.  

Local & Experienced...

This is where the personal, hands on approach from your local, experienced estate agent is invaluable, which combined with modern technology, shouldn’t be overlooked for a cut-price service.
