Most buyers use the internet in their search for a home, so you need to be sure that your property is found and promoted quickly and easily. It is therefore important that your agent subscribes to the most effective property portals because this is how buyers are directed to your property.
Many property portals have come and gone over recent years and whilst a few specialist portals remain the overall market is controlled by two giants, Rightmove and Zoopla. Each has so much coverage that many buyers don’t always feel they need to use both, especially as they become familiar with the workings of one or the other and they subscribe to their preferred site’s “mailing list”.
When selling your property, it is therefore really important to choose an agent that subscribes to both Rightmove AND Zoopla. It means that your own property is much more likely to be found on search engines such as Google. Indeed, your estate agent’s own website is also more likely to rank highly if it also has links to more than one portal.
Your agents’ role is to maximise your exposure and harness response, leading to a faster sale where competition between buyers pushes your price to the max.
When selling your home, it is critical that you get it right, first time, so we’ve never held back when it comes to embracing the efficiencies of effective online technology. With Oakfield Estate Agents you can feel secure in the knowledge that your property will absolutely be exposed to the very maximum number of suitable buyers available. And more buyers means a faster sale at a higher price. That’s what we do!
