Although many people like to use an estate agent that is based in their local high street an increasing number operate solely online.
The benefit of using an online estate agent is that they are much cheaper, so you can save a lot in fees. They will also advertise your house on all the big property websites – so you will still reach a huge number of potential buyers.
But this option won’t suit everyone – you may like dealing with an estate agent face-to-face. And online estate agents are unlikely to have the same level of local knowledge as one based in your area.
