With the rise of property websites such as Rightmove and Zoopla and the explosion of the online estate agency sector, selling via the internet has become increasingly popular. However the term DIY estate agent has been coined by many to describe the process of selling online and is widely used within the media in particular.
At eMoov we HATE this term and in fact, take it to heart when we’re referred to as a DIY estate agent. There is no such thing as a DIY estate agent where we are concerned, or the rest of the online sector for that matter. We are a full service agent and in fact our service is substantially and consistently better than the high street!
The myth of a DIY estate agent has been fabricated to deter UK sellers from a much better value route of sale. Although you can DIY on the sale of your home, sale by owner is a whole other kettle of fish and one we don’t advise.
As more and more home-owners realise that the high fees charged by high street agents equate to very little service, more and more are turning to the middle ground of the online sector. You get a full service and industry expertise, with more control over the sale of your house, all without the heft high street fee.
Before you turn your back on estate agency, try us out. Our winning combination of an established team and proactive sellers is the reason why eMoov is Britain’s favourite online estate agent.
