We’re sad to break the news that Jane Earl online estate agents are no longer to trade.
Jane Earl have been established for a while and along with eMoov.co.uk were one of the early pioneers of low cost estate agency.
In a call to their offices this morning, they confirmed that they were not taking on new business and were to cease trading as from the end of November. They stated that ‘challenging trading conditions’ were responsible for their decision to close however their pricing was very low at just £175.00. Seemingly too low?
Online estate agents offer savings of 90% compared to the High Street guys and so to peg at such an overly competitive figure was perhaps unnecessary.
Jane Earl were one of the ‘good guys’ though and we wish the directors and staff all the best for the future in whatever they decide to do.
With 1000 or so High Street estate agents having closed their doors since 2008 (Source: Ordinance Survey) they probably won’t be venturing back into a bricks and mortar firm we suspect.
