  • Many agents charge numerous upfront and exit fees. These can often be hidden in the contract meaning you will be charged even if you do not sell your property. Varies
  • no
  • yes
  • Outside of office hours all buyer enquires are diverted to an answerphone which often results in many potential buyers hanging up.no
  • ‘Slow’ buyers are often not screened out (i.e. those in chains and without finance agreed) resulting in more aborted sales and long delays for the ones that do complete.no
  • Most traditional agents use just local advertising and one or two of the major national property portals but they rarely use all of them because of the added expense. The result is a large proportion of potential buyers will not see your property. no
  • no
  • Many (but not all) traditional estate agents give valuations that they know to be too high just to get home owners to sign up with them. The result is that propeties stagnate on the market until their advertising prices are reduced to a realistic value.no
  • Assuming your property has been valued realistically (see point above) then unless you are in Scotland the vast majority of estate agents will advertise your property at a price above what they expect it to achieve. Offers significantly below the asking price are expected. On average property advertised by estate agents sell for 7% less than its final advertising price (note this is the final price – many properties have their advertising price reduced over time meaning the final sale price will be over 10% lower than it was initially advertised for). The result is that most properties take a long time to sell, if at all.no

  • Our phones are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so you will never miss a buyer enquiry. Research has shown potential buyers don’t like answer phones which is why we always have a real person pick up.yes

  • As over 90% of home buyers now use the internet to search for property, we have a huge online advertising network consisting of all the top 4 property portals (Rightmove, FindaProperty, Primelocation, Zoopla) plus over 250 local and national property related websites. We also have relationships with property investment companies where we advertise suitable properties.yes
  • yes
  • We give honest and accurate valuations as we are interested in selling your property rather than just getting it on the market. yes
  • Our pricing strategy is focused on maximising the interest from all buyers willing and able to purchase your property in the timeframe you require. In practical terms this means we are likely to advertise your property at a realistic asking price that is lower than a traditional estate agency would. However, this does not mean it will sell for any less than a traditional estate agency – it just means it will have a higher chance of selling and it will sell faster. The aim is to get multiple offers quickly from credible buyers - many of whom may not have even have been seen or paid any attention to your property if a traditional estate agency had been used.yes
