An online agency comparison website, sellingup, says that vendors can sell more quickly through online agents “and still get a great price”.
The piece initially cited research by Which?
The article said: “In fact, according to research by Which? properties sell on average faster through an online estate agent than a traditional agent, thanks largely to the technology they use to streamline the process.”
We asked the site’s founder, Oliver Lewis, about the reference to Which?
This reference has now been temporarily withdrawn.
The site now claims: “Selling a property has long been viewed as a long-winded and laborious process but thanks to the rise of online estate agents, there is the very real prospect that sellers could be signing on the dotted line faster than ever before.”
The site has a league table of nine online agents based on Trustpilot reviews, headed by esale in first place. The others, in descending order, are: sellmyhome, settled, YOPA, emoov, Griffin Residential, turtle homes, tepilo, and house simple.
The table does not include Purplebricks although Purplebricks’s reviews are on the site.
