There is a lot of hype at the moment about the ‘online estate agents’ and the good value they seem to provide.
Everyone loves a good deal, especially when we could save thousands of pounds! But, will you really save money using an online estate agent?
The Advisory recently did a data study on the differences between the online agents and traditional high street agents, the results are pretty astounding!
They established that good high street agents in 73% of house sales are achieving a better selling price than pure internet-only agents, and on average are achieving 5% higher selling prices for their clients.
In Bury, Ramsbottom, Radcliffe and Prestwich this equates to around a whopping £10,000 based on the average house price of £200,000. Let’s take a look at what that 5% difference could mean…
Sold price: £176,000
5% more than online estate agent = £8800
