Less focus is now on selling properties via shop windows and newspaper listings, but more emphasis is now on the use of online estate agents and portals who provide the same marketing exposure but at a lesser cost. In fact, many traditional local agents are now advertising via online property portals like Zoopla, Rightmove and Primelocation.
At the moment Rightmove only allows property listings and advertising via estate agents and developers, therefore if you are looking to sell or let your home you will have to instruct an online or high-street estate agency.
