With the huge progress in online property marketing/sales and all the processes in between, it was only a matter of time before Online Agents such as Purplebricks and Yopa came in and boasted how they can do everything a high street agent can do, do it better, but only charge a fraction of the cost. Sounds too good to be true right? Well, if you keep abreast of the media, a lot of chickens appear to be coming home to roost (see BBC Watchdog https://bbc.in/2IHDmXr for example). So whats the best way forward when it comes to selling your home?
We at WitSell have started to notice quite a few vendors coming in voicing dissatisfaction with their experience of online only agents. Now, if you read our blog at all, you will see we are keen #PropTech buffs, so I’m not prepared to start telling you Traditional Estate Agency is the only way forward when it comes to selling your house! BUT! There should be a fine balance between the two schools of agency.
So here are 3 quickfire reasons why using WitSell is better than going purely online:
- We have the facility for you to create your online profile on our website and monitor your sale like an online agent. Its not difficult and exclusively the realm of online agents – we have a high street off ice and therefore you have CHOICE! You can either come in and talk face to face or, if you’re too busy, monitor the sale from your Ipad!
- We have been about locally for years! We are based in town and know the local area. Our market appraisals are not just based on what a computer tells us – that is a factor of course – but we know the different areas of town, which warrant a slightly inflated price and we can also explain why other properties are on the market for what price.
- We are an independent agent and the buck stops in our office. You will also speak to the same agent throughout the sales journey rather than being passed around and/or up the chain of command to regional head office etc. You can rest assured you will be able to build a rapport and enjoy your sale rather than experience the stress that can be incurred.
If you have any questions about our sales process, why not call us on 01376502450 and chat with Scott. We look forward to hearing from you.
