It costs a lot to move to your perfect home
Netanagent is a free online way to compare all estate agents in your area. This has many benefits to you, the consumer such as:-
Saving you time and money
Bespoke quotes tailored to your property
No need to negotiate over fees
Comparing quotes side by side
It's simple to do - add your contact details, then your basic property details - and just click on 'Get Quotes'. All the details are saved and not shared with the estate agents so you won't get cold called by them. You also get the information sent to you via email.
Below is a list of some of the estate agents that were matched to my property, eleven different ones. The fees varied greatly from 1.8% including VAT to 0.6% including VAT. There are also some that charge a flat fee for the service. This may save you money if you have an expensive property.
It also shows you what you would get for that cost and if you are tied into a contract. The cheapest for my property, a company called House Tree are an online estate agent, but if you wanted to go with a 'bricks and mortar' estate agent with a traditional high street shop setting then you can do that too.
The green 'Request Valuation' button sends the information to the estate agent. You can ask for up to three valuations from the companies on this site. Once you have the valuations, just log in and accept which agent you would like to market your property with. It really is that simple.
If you think when you are saving 0.1% on the fee price with an estate agent and you're selling your property for 300k, you're saving £300, that really is a lot of money and you can see considerable savings can be made. It's also about understanding what you get for your fee. You may want to go with a more expensive estate agent because they will give you a video, or advertise your property in the local press.
I've found Netanagent a very useful website to compare estate agents, and I will certainly be giving it a go when I move next time. I honestly cannot see any pitfalls in using this site and it can certainly save you money and help find the best estate agent for you.
