12/9/18: 'After my last experience of dealing with an estate agent, I knew this time I had to get it right. I first considered one of the larger outfits in town, but then discovered that actually, their reputations weren’t that great. I called Homed:In when I received a promotional offer through the door, offering lower commission and longer working hours. They were local, so I gave them a shot. Since then, James, his professional photographer, his mortgage consultant and even the recommended solicitor have all been instrumental at putting my mind to rest. I’ve not been on the market long, but viewing activity has been exceptional, and James arrives on time and looking the part! Definitely will be keeping more of an open mind in future as to how I regard estate agents.
I hadn’t heard good stories about the other local, larger estate agents in town. So I wanted to try something new. Their fees were better than fair, and I liked how they offered no contract tie in. I also loved the 360 tour offering, too. That flexibility and good value made the proposal too tempting to resist!
So far, so good! Viewing activity has exceeded my expectations, their marketing is excellent with professionally shot photos, and they’re always on hand to take one of my many requests or nags! No job too small, as they say.
To be honest, I was never fully confident about using a new start up agency, particularly one with no high street presence. However, I soon had these concerns dispelled, as they began delivering the goods. It’s all online these days I’ve since discovered… and what’s more, their commission rates are unbeatable.
The savings I’ll have made will equate to well over £5,000 compared to a quote I received from another estate agent. It sounds boring, but I’ll likely just save it… moving isn’t cheap!!'
