What’s important to you?
We understand that everyone’s unique with different objectives and a one size approach doesn’t fit all. We think its important our customers know that not all Estate Agents work in the same way.
The Traditional Agent
Some agents (typically the larger ones) may employ listers. Their job is to “win” business and they’re usually targeted and incentivised on the number of properties they “list”. Other members of staff called Sales Negotiators will then organise viewings and follow up with potential buyers to get feedback.
Properties can often sit on the market for a long time and it’s a well-known fact in the industry that some agents may use tactics such as over-valuing property to help win business and achieve targets set by hungry senior management.
A tell-tale sign is usually the number of reduced properties an agent has listed. The reduction may be presented in a positive way but ultimately, a property which has been on the market for a long time and reduced in price is could be considered negatively by prospective buyers.
The Online Agent
Online agents may “list” your property for a set price and fees are typically payable in advance. Additional charges often apply if you want them to do anything over and above this. If you’re thinking of using an online agent, we recommend checking their terms and conditions thoroughly and also ask yourself the followings questions: -
“What incentive do they have to sell my property if I’m paying a fee in advance?”
“Will they want to help me navigate the legal process once a sale is agreed?”
