About iSold estate agents

Traditional Estate Agents vs. Online Estate Agents

Estate agency has changed — gone are the days when you needed a traditional high street estate agent to sell your house or property. The internet has rapidly become the property buyers shop window and this phenomenon has led to the introduction of iSold, the award winning online estate agent, who offer a modern, alternative way to sell your house or property. There are a few main differences between a traditional estate agent and an online estate agent, for example:

  • An online estate agent will typically work from a central location and not from a high street branch. However, unlike most other online estate agents, iSold have locally based Valuation Managers who are familiar with your neighbourhood and can carry out a free, no obligation property valuation for you.
  • A traditional estate agent will usually charge a fee which is a percentage of the selling price (typically ranging from 1.5% to 2%, plus VAT). As an online estate agent operates from a central location we can often charge significantly less than a traditional estate agent. iSold estate agents charge a fixed fee of just £1499 plus VAT, which can represent a saving of several thousand pounds.

It may surprise you to hear that an online estate agent such as iSold can in fact provide the same level of service, if not better, than a traditional estate agent. The iSold team work strictly to a Customer Charter and strive to offer the very best level of service in the industry. Many of those who have sold their properties through iSold online estate agents have had a positive experience after selling quickly and achieving the very best price for their property — read what sellers say about iSold.
