The internet has quickly become the property buyers shop window with websites such as Rightmove and Findaproperty being the first place a buyer will go to search for a property. It’s this that has led to the concept of online estate agency and indeed Urban Sales and Lettings. There are a few main differences between a traditional estate agent and an online estate agent, for example:
- An online estate agent will generally work from a central location and not from
an expensive high street location. Online estate agents must, however, have locally
based representatives who can visit your property to produce the particulars.
- A traditional estate agent will charge a fee which is a percentage of the selling
price (usually from 1.5% to 2%, plus VAT). As online estate agents have lower overheads
they charge significantly less than traditional estate agents. Urban Sales and Lettings’
fees start from just £59.95 + VAT.
It may surprise you to hear that online estate agents such as Urban Sales and Lettings
can provide the same level of service, if not better, than a traditional estate
agent. Our team work very hard to offer the very best level of service in the industry
and have unbeatable standards of customer care. Many of those who have sold their
properties through Urban Sales and Lettings online estate agents have had a great
experience after selling efficiently and achieving the very best price for their
house or flat.
A recent review of our services perfectly sums up what Urban Sales and Lettings can offer as an online estate agent.
“Fantastic Professional Service - Highly Recommend!!
We listed our house for sale back in October with Urban Sales and Lettings Online
Estate Agents and from start to finish I have been so impressed. My husband and
I have sold two properties in the past through more traditional high street agents
and I can honestly say the only difference I saw in the service level was that I
decided I wanted to do my own viewings, that was my decision and for my husband
it worked well. We did the maths and it worked out it saved us almost £11,000!!!
It’s hard to understand why local agents charge so much more when companies like
Urban Sales and Lettings do a very similar thing for such a small fee. The whole
process is pretty streamlined. Within 24 hours of making my payment I got a call
from a surveyor to sort out a date and time for my floor plan, we also had an EPC
and photos done as well. The appointments were booked at my convenience which was
really helpful. A few days after the appointments I was sent an email asking me
to check everything over, there was one little change I wanted making to the floor
plan which took them a few hours and then the next day the property was up and running.
Literally in under a week from buying the package we had had a viewing!
We wanted a quick sale so we listed the property at a realistic price which may
have helped but still we were really impressed by the enquiries we got. We had an
offer from the third viewing which we initially refused, they came back with a slightly
higher offer which we accepted and the sales staff were really great in going backwards
and forwards. The memo of sale was sent out quickly which helped get the ball rolling
between our solicitor and our buyers and we completed in weeks. All in all it was
the most stress free sale we have ever been through and I can’t recommend the service
