How Do I Sell My Home Online in 2019?

Mar 19, 2019

The answer to the title of this post is, of course, “use emoov”.

Ok, post finished. Kidding.

Well, sort of.

We do believe that you should use emoov to sell your home. But perhaps it might be better to provide a little context and explain why selling your house online with us is going to be up there with one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.

Easy like Sunday Morning

It’s so straightforward: one flat fee is all you pay to get your home listed. After that, all the savings are passed onto you. There’s no negotiating over commission and fees. No estate agent selling you a dream and failing to deliver. There is, however, a passionate and dedicated team of experts on hand to help at every step. From the initial valuation all the way to the final sale, they will be there to provide support and act as your go-to.

We get it—listing with an online agent is often painted as an entirely digital experience with no human help. The reality is very different, however. Just look at other sectors. Online banking revolutionised the way people access their money, but humans still play an important role. Listing your property online takes away many of the headaches associated with high-street estate agents but keeps the positives, such as round-the-clock human help, and brings selling your home into the 21st century.

Smooth sailing

Now that you know the basics of selling your property online, let’s break down how it works. We’ve put together a process that is nice and easy – one that will see you sailing smoothly through the entire transaction. 

The sales process

As soon as you’ve given us the green light, we can get the ball rolling. First, we’ll arrange an accredited assessor to visit your property. Their job is to take lots of snazzy professional photos that will make your property look super desirable.

Note: We take photos of all the properties we list, but if you fancy yourself as a budding photographer, feel free to add your own to the online listing at any time. After the photos have been taken, the assessor will do a floor plan and, if needed, conduct an EPC assessment of your property.

Making admin great again

Once the photos, floor plan and EPC are in the bag, our admin team comes to life. They’ll get to work on creating your listing for Zoopla and Rightmove, adding pictures, floor plans and a jazzy property description to the online portals. Once it’s all uploaded, we’ll send the listing over to you just in case you want to add anything extra.

We won’t press the green button on your property until you are absolutely happy with how the listing looks. You can also remove your property whenever you like, freezing the guaranteed marketing until you’re ready to start again. Handy if things are a bit slow around Christmas time or you’re off on an extended holiday.

The best views

It’s time to start conducting the viewings now that the property is live. Anyone who is interested in viewing your property makes a request via the online booking system. All you need to do is set the times that you’re available so that the viewer can request one of the spots. Then it goes back to you for final confirmation. There’s no hassle, and you’re in complete control of the process.

Buyers can also call us directly to arrange a viewing, at which point we will check your availability on the system. All that’s left to do is show them around the home you’ve been living in—and we doubt there is anyone better suited to do that than you.

Sell, sell, sell

The viewings are coming, and people are interested. Now it’s time to take some offers on your home. Buyers make concrete offers directly through emoov, at which point you decide if you want to accept, reject or negotiate. The final decision lies with you, but we’re here to provide expert advice and make everything as easy as possible.

Unlike high-street agents, we’re not chasing commision, which is why our advice is based purely on whether or not you are getting the best deal. We’re transparent and act as consultants, rather pushy negotiators. And that’s it—home sold. Though we are around after the sale has gone through (we get attached like that), and you can reach us with a quick call should you have any further queries or need any advice.

It’s all about you (and your home)
