Since the revolution of the internet, the housing market has changed dramatically - gone are the days where you relied on a local estate agent to find your next home. We all now rely on websites such as rightmove to extensively research every home on the market.
As a result, estate agents all fish from the same pond and access to buyers is much easier - basically, no matter who you instruct, the same buyer will be found. However, local estate agents that charge a percentage, over charge for local services such as a high street shop when you simply do not need one.
Nowadays, you should be instructing an estate agent based on fees charged, service levels and capacity to deal with enquiries. We are a large estate agency that is within the top 100 in the UK out of 14,000 and we have infrastructure and staffing to handle every stage of your house sale.
You maybe visiting our website for the first time, but we have been established for over 8 years and we are currently actively marketing 994 individual clients.
Our statistics speak for themselves - we have agreed sales on over 6,100 properties, arranged 187841 viewings, saved over £29m in local agent fees and sold over £1539 million worth of property.
Our Essex regional branch offers the huge benefits of our national super branch including the low cost national prices, but also offers the local elements and services such as:-
- Free valuations
- No sale no fee pricing
- Accompanied viewings (dependent on availability)
We operate a 'challenge quotation' policy. Whereby we claim to be able to beat any local quote you have on offer.
I am writing on behalf of my parents, who recently sold their house at via your company. They have asked me to inform you of their sincere gratitude at the quality, efficiency and value for money of your service. They are not technology/computer minded, although my father uses the computer for basic internet purchases, but not frequently for email. They both had reservations about using Housenetwork when I first informed them that this indeed was the 'modern' way to sell a property. With slight resistance, they agreed to 'try it'. To their surprise, they found that the ability to contact their sale manager by phone whenever they wished, and also that they were contacted by telephone and not forced into using email themselves together with the exceptionally high level of customer support they received far exceeded their expectations. They are however somewhat bemused. They cannot quite believe the quality of service they received compared to their 'long trusted' high street estate agent when it only cost about £500, compared to the £4000 they would have been charged. They almost feel that something must be wrong! Speaking to them today, they informed me that they would only ever now recommend Housenetwork to sell a property - 'on the internet' - an astonishing recommendation of your services I assure you.
