Internet Only Local Agent - can you have both? #Sheffield #EstateAgent #Blog

Spot the difference

It’s good to be different, isn’t it? We think so, and we like to think that we’re a bit different to your average estate agent that you find on a typical high street. Among the numerous reasons why, is something that we launched just over 2 years ago which has proved to be a very popular factor with many local homeowners throughout that time. Spencer The Estate Agent was the first estate agent in Sheffield to offer an Internet Only alternative to our everyday traditional service.

This alternative service offers everything you would come to expect including professional photos, floor plans, brochures, for sale board and the obvious online coverage of Rightmove & Zoopla. But where our service is different to that of the various well-advertised national online-only agents is that you and your prospective buyers will be dealt with by local, knowledgeable and experienced negotiators who will become as much of an expert on your own property as you are. The negotiator will visit your property and therefore will have a first hand understanding of everything a potential purchaser would need to know about it when looking to buy. This knowledge has proved to be invaluable when negotiating on your behalf meaning we can often attract sales at much higher prices than a less experienced or motivated online agent can achieve for you. Is it worth trying to save a couple of thousand pounds when a good agent could gain you tens of thousands of pounds by marketing it correctly in the first place?

Another difference that we feel is important is that all of our Internet only properties feature alongside all the other listings that we have for sale with no noticeable difference between the two. I’m sure I’m not alone in this but when I see a property listed with an online only agent I presume this is because the seller is looking to save money which makes me wonder what else they may have done with the property to try and save more money! The reality may be less sinister than this but I do believe that people prefer to buy from names and brands that they respect and trust. I’m sure if I listed every single online agent here now, more than 75% of the people reading this would not have heard of all the companies out there. On the other hand if you asked your average potential vendor of south-west Sheffield if they know of Spencer The Estate Agent, then I’m fairly certain that not only would the answer be yes but I would also like to think they’d have a fairly high opinion of us too!
