Are you thinking of selling your home this year? Before you go ahead and contact your local estate agent, read our handy advice on how you can save a substantial amount on the sale by switching to an online estate agent.

When it comes to selling or letting a property, most people will turn to a traditional estate agent to help them with the process of valuing, marketing and finding a buyer/tenant for their property.

Having someone on hand to help you through the sales process is crucial, but have you considered just how much this assistance is going to cost?

High street estate agents have up until recently been in total control of the property sales market and been able to charge substantial amounts for their services. While a one or two percent fee may seem insignificant at the time, this can mean you’ll be paying out several thousand pounds depending on the final sale price.

Thanks to online estate agent services, you can now avoid such steep selling costs and still receive professional advice and get the same if not great online marketing exposure. The majority of online estate agents use a business model where the seller pays a small upfront fee rather than the larger commission fee typically charged by traditional estate agent upon completion.

Click of the bunch

Just as most people book their holidays or buy groceries online, more and more people are now turning to the internet when it comes to searching for property to purchase. By signing up with an online agent your home will appear on all the major property sites and be visible to a much larger group of potential home buyers.

Andrew Potter, co owner of said that the majority of buyers searching for property online ask if their property will appear on Righmove which is the UK’s largest property website. "With the extensive marketing power offered by online estate agents, this could mean that your home is sold faster than with a conventional estate agent, whilst also saving a hefty sum of money in commission fees," he added.
