The recent trend towards online everything - from banking to travel agency - has also seen the entrance of online estate agents into the market .
Of course local estate agents have been using online channels since the internet started - we use Rightmove, Zoopla, S1 Homes, Facebook, etc , etc ..
Since the value of a property sale is so high, the service provided by a local estate agent is usually required to ensure all the details are taken care of , and everything goes to plan.
However we also understand that some clients are keen to take on some of the responsbility themselves - and make cost savings in the process .
This is why we have now introduced our onlline marketing option - you get the same level of conventional online marketing - via Rightmove, Zoopla & S1 homes- You even get the same access to our database of local buyers - but you handle your own viewings and a few other ' hands-on tasks ' which are usually covered by our normal service .
Remember we are still actively marketing your property - so when prospective buyers call or email us to find out details - we are still happy to talk to them and tell them all about your property and the local area. The local connection and knowledge is still very important.
If you are interested in an online marketing option - call us today on 01506 500 999!
Our recent marketing campaign highlighted the current trend for Estate Agents to HIDE FEES!
Estate Agents often advertise LOW FEES - but then simply add them in to SOLICITORS FEES and HOME REPORTS..
So when a client pays the SOLICITOR or SURVEYOR - the Estate Agent receives a commission back which is really just a HIDDEN FEE!
These commissions are significant - ie £200 - £300 each! And many times Estate Agents contracts tie their clients in - so you end up having no choice but to PAY!
Alba Property advise all our clients to use trusted local solicitors and surveyors - We have special rates already agreed which all our clients have access to - with No HIDDEN FEES!
You may also notice that some agents charge for EXTRAS - like a floor plan , or marketing / photography etc etc
Alba Property offer a fully inclusive package - We dont charge extra for these items because we know that they are all REQUIRED in order to market a property to its best potential!
Dont be fooled by misleading Advertisements - if you would like to discuss any aspect of our offer, feel free to call us on 01506 500999 .
We are always happy to help.
