Why use a local, independent high street agent?
Modern Technology… Traditional Values
In many markets the internet has revolutionised and empowered consumer purchasing. But what has been the effect on the property industry?
Around 90% of property searches now start online thanks to the likes of Rightmove and Zoopla shaping the way in which we find a property. It is important to understand the benefits of using a locally owned high street agent to sell, buy, let or rent your property:
No hidden fees
The online agency model throws up a tissue of unknowns. You could be charged up to £500 just for listing the property online - regardless of whether the property is sold or not. This contrasts with the traditional model of “no sale no fee” which motivates the agents to professionally negotiate the best possible price for your property.
Don’t forget the various add-ons such as accompanied viewings, photographs, premium listing etc for which you will be charged extra.
