Online agents can be tempting with their low sales fees but do they provide the service you want and need?
If you’re thinking of selling your house, the following question might have crossed your mind: “Do I go with a high street or online agent?”
Well, here at Parklane Properties, we know nothing can beat the service of a high street agent where you can speak to, and get advice from, a real person.
Although online agents may be open 24/7, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to speak to someone straight away. There’s also no guarantee that you’ll be speaking to the same person each time.
With a high street estate agent like Parklane Properties, you know the person you’re dealing with will be an expert in the local area. We’ve been based in Leeds for over 35 years, so the experience we have means that we know this city like the back of our hand. Our agents are also be contactable throughout the sale of your house and they’ll take care of your viewings for you. Not only does this ensure that potential buyers for your house will get all the information they need, it means that the sale of your house is in the best hands possible.
You also know where you stand with Parklane Properties. We’ll get the best price for your house where some others might not and you only pay the sales fee for your house when your house is sold. With Parklane Properties, if there’s no sale, there’s no fee.
“But I can pay a lot less for my sales fee when with an online agent.”
While this might be the case, the sales fee often has to be paid upfront with online agents. You also have to pay that fee if your house sells or not. You also often have to pay extra for things like accompanied viewings, full colour floor plans and EPCs. With Parklane Properties, everything is included and we can guarantee to get your house online within 24 hours. You can also do a free valuation online to find out what your property is worth.
We know money talks though so to combat the online agent fees, for 4 weeks only, Parklane Properties are offering a sales fee of £999 if you sell your property with us. Not only will you know exactly what you’re paying but you’ll also get all the benefits of using a high street agent too.
