Online estate agencies are growing in popularity because the process, for instance, to ‘sell my house Manchester’, is not only transparent but flexible as well.
Obviously, while our headline focuses on selling a house online in Manchester this article is applicable to anyone selling a property in the UK and wants to use an online estate agent.
However, with growing numbers of these agencies also offering landlords a platform to find tenants and for tenants looking to find quality homes to rent means they offer the best of both worlds.
One reason for the fast rise in popularity is that many of us begin our search for a new home to rent or buy online; this means we no longer visit a high street estate agent or look in the local newspaper to see what properties are available since the information is presented to us at the click of a button.
Property for sale or a house for rent
It’s this ease of access that has really underpinned the successful online estate agents and the process for adding a property for sale or a house for rent is simplicity itself.
For instance, it can take just 10 minutes for a vendor to add their property to an online estate agent’s website along with photographs and the details though some people may opt for a package where the photographs are taken for them and the description written but this depends on how much they want to do for themselves.
However, as with traditional estate agents, within a day or two the property’s details are available on the main property portals in the UK, such as Zoopla or Rightmove, and from this point a vendor can manage every aspect of the process such as arranging viewing times and also speaking with a prospective buyer and receive regular updates on what is happening.
It’s this element of around-the-clock availability that appeals to many vendors and those with property to rent rather than having to work within the set office hours of a traditional estate agent.
Looking for property for rent Manchester
Depending on the package selected, a vendor or landlord can then arrange when to show a prospective buyer or tenant around the property and engage with them on a one-to-one basis – this could be a boon for those looking for property for rent Manchester or in other areas.
By arranging these appointments directly means the vendor or landlord is not having to have lots of frustrating conversations about their availability to meet with the other party.
Many online estate agents offer lots of support, usually by telephone between the hours of 8am and 8pm every day of the week with many also offering contact 24 hours a day through their website.
While many vendors and landlords will be happy to negotiate with a potential buyer or tenant when it comes to the purchase price or the rent, the online estate agent will also have the experience to negotiate on their behalf effectively.
