Using an online estate agent could potentially save you thousands of pounds if you sell your home this way. You won’t need to pay a commission, like you would with a high street estate agent. Instead, you’re usually charged a fixed fee.
Selling online might save you time too.
According to the property market watchdog HomeOwners Alliance, properties marketed via online estate agents took on average 43 days to sell, compared to 60 days for properties marketed by high street agents. The average percentage of asking price achieved is 95.85 per cent for online agents, compared with 95.69 per cent for high street estate agents.
