nline-only agents rely heavily on generating buyers purely from the listings on property websites they do not have a high street office and they promote low upfront-fee policies which means you part with your money at the point when your For Sale sign goes up outside your house. Whether it sells or not. With limited, or as often reported, no support or motivation from the agent to get your property sold, the money you have ‘saved’ through the lower upfront fee begins to look questionable. As far as the agent is concerned, their job is done, your house is on the market and they have received their fee.
For high street agents like Hunters, this is the point where we feel our job really begins. Our trained agents will work tirelessly and pro-actively to market your property in-order to find the right buyer who will pay the best price for your property and be in a position to proceed quickly through to completion.
Furthermore, as a result of Hunters pro-active marketing strategy, you are in fact 35% more likely to successfully complete your property transaction with us compared to the national average.
So far this year over a quarter of a million new people have trusted Hunters with their property needs and many of our customers will be several thousand pounds better off as a result of us achieving a higher sale price for them.
Choosing the right agent from the start can mean significant savings, less risk of a sale falling through, and less time and money wasted on other agents who may not deliver for you. Choose Hunters from the start. Find your local branch here.
