How do I sell with online estate agents? 

There are a few different ways you can sell your house online. All bring different benefits and disadvantages, so it’s important to find the right method to suit you.

Some online estate agents are different, like We don’t charge any fees at all, at any point in the selling process. There are no hidden costs, and we even cover the legal fees.

Our goal is to sell your home online in the most efficient and hassle-free way possible. We never overvalue or over-promise, marketing your home at a realistic price and advertising to 98% of all active buyers.

Online Selling Packages

Online estate agents offer different types of packages which can suit different budgets. In contrast to high street estate agents, who charge between 1% and 3%+VAT commission of the selling price, conventional online estate agents usually charge a flat fee anywhere from £100 to £2,000.

Some cheaper packages don’t include things like photography, floorplans and advertising on the big property listing websites, so it’s important to find the right package for you.

Some conventional online estate agents offer an option if you pay upfront. However, this can come with risks, as your property is not guaranteed a sale. You may need to switch to another estate agency, which will result in more costs. Others offer a no sale no fee package which removes this risk, but they are usually more expensive.

Traditional High Street Estate Agents

Traditional estate agents in the United Kingdom typically charge a fee ranging from 0.75% to 3% of the property’s sale price, plus VAT, which is payable upon completion. These agents have followed a well-established approach for many years, often without significant technological advancements or innovation. Their process involves advertising properties on popular online portals, waiting for potential buyers to express interest, arranging viewings, and subsequently soliciting offers. Despite the relatively limited work involved, these agents charge a substantial fee, which helps cover the costs associated with maintaining physical high street offices.

Cash Buying Quick Sale Options

There are many online companies that will buy property for cash, although usually about 10% to 25% below the asking price. These can be a good option for people who need to quickly access cash or want to avoid repossession of their home.

If you use a cash buying company, you should research them thoroughly to check they are legitimate. You can search them on Companies House and look through their filing history. Genuine cash buyers will have entries denoting ‘registration of charge’ and ‘satisfaction of charge’. If the company doesn’t have these entries, they are probably a brokerage, not a genuine cash buyer, and they won’t be able to offer a fast sale.

You should also check reviews on Trustpilot, a website where companies are reviewed by customers. You can expect a few negative reviews for any company, but the majority should be positive for a decent organisation.

A cash buying company will give an initial valuation which may change once the house has been surveyed. So, you might not get the first price you were given.

The new way to sell your house online

We believe that traditional high street and conventional online estate agency models have their place – but there are downsides to both.

Most agents overvalue your home to get you to choose them. This unfairly raises your hopes and wastes your time, as you’ll be asked to lower the asking price every few weeks to sell it.

On average, it takes a regular estate agent 190 days to sell your home. That’s 6 months!

Everyone knows this, yet everyone still plays the same game, despite the fact the first few weeks when selling your home are the most critical.

That’s the old way. We do things the Sold way.
