Online Only Agent Case Study
Fri 14 Jul 2017
Mr X was confident that his house in Camborne would sell quickly and so he chose to market it through a cheap online only agent. There were several viewings, which, despite paying extra to have the accompanied viewing service, the vendor had to carry out themselves because the representative, who lived 40 miles away, was unable to be present. 6 months after going on the market the viewings had dried up and no support was offered to provide strategies to help sell the house. Indeed, it was proving very difficult to keep in touch with the agency staff at all. After all, why should they bother? The agent had already had their money whether or not the house sold.
At this point, impressed by a meeting with local agent, Danny Green, the owner decided to engage Millerson. With their in-depth local knowledge, careful marketing, targeted viewings and negotiation skills the house was sold within a couple of months, and for very close to the asking price.
Mr X said, ‘After my experience I would always recommend that people should chose a local estate agent to sell their home. From the first moment that I met Danny I had complete faith in Millerson and I was not disappointed. Millerson are professionals, the online only agent was not!’
