                                                     Best Online Estate Agent                                             


Choosing the best Online Estate Agent - a recommendation of the best online estate agent and the differences between online estate agents and high street estate agents, by Anita Richardson, HouseWow® CEO.


Anita Richardson, HouseWow®  MD,  founder of the Home Staging Network and Author of  CHSSP Home Staging Course.


"I'm Anita Richardson,  with over a decade of experience in home staging property I have seen property marketed well and property marketed very badly indeed by different Estate Agents.  I would like to recommend to you the best online Estate Agent, House Network  for the following reasons:




  • Fixed fee Estate Agent since 2004.

  • Charge a low fixed fee to sell a home with no percentage on sale

  • Professional home visit from fully employed local network of NAEA agents

  • Virtual tours

  • Full descriptions, dimensions and floorplans

  • Ultra Wide angle photography

  • Unlimited images in online marketing.

  • The widest range of online and newspaper advertising 

  • Property portals including rightmove,  zoopla, prime location, google, globrix, upmystreet, and many more.

  • For Sale Board included 

  • A personal estate agent will be responsible for the viewing feedback, offers and sale progression, through to completion day.

  • Communications by direct dial telephone, internal messaging system linked to an online property login and online chat

  • Amendments to property particulars completed within hours and updated to all portal networks.

  • Options for all top of category Rightmove listings

  • Successfully negotiated 5,500 agreed sales to date

  • £20m saved for clients compared to local agents - (based on 1.5%) 

  • Bespoke software and experienced in-house team  

  • 5,000 sqft head office, filled with experience and professional staff 

  • Weekly Rightmove statistic reports with performance summary 

How do they keep fees so low? 

The savings produced by low overheads and an efficient operation are passed onto the customer. Low overheads are due to scalability of an efficient National operation with one office base. Staffing is used for communications and initial home visit only.  Payment of a fixed fee is taken in advanced. Staff time is not wasted on visits for house valuations without instructions. 


Do online Estate Agents conduct viewings if I'm not local to my property?   

Viewings can be arranged by the Agent, any day of the week, evenings and weekends are particularly catered for as these are the times that most viewers want to go.  



Fast, efficient, professional service. State of the art photography. Low fees. Update your property details online, provide additional images, keep a track of viewings, feedback and the progress of your sale in your own online account.

  TOP TIP for 

property sellers

Fed up with time wasters viewing your home and then making a ridiculously low offer? Then set a price of  'offers above' rather than 'offers in the region of' - and viewers will get the message.


Why this particular Online Estate Agent?


The standard of property marketing and customer service which you receive from your Agent is vital to your property sale and vital to your sanity!   An Estate Agent  I have no hesitation in recommending is the best online Estate Agent in the Business - House Network. 


From House Network, you will receive first class marketing photography, efficient support and assistance with your negotiations and buyer/vendor communication.  If you request a change to your property listing details it will be completed and live on the web within a matter of hours.  


And all this at a fraction of the price of a high street estate agent, with the option of a set fee paid upfront whatever the value of your home.

The HouseNetwork Online Estate Agent customer account is thorough and detailed, you will receive updates by email and viewings arranged efficiently by telephone and confirmed in email.  HouseNetwork property marketing photographs are first class, with many angles of each room, garden and selling points.  A one bedroom flat I recently advertised with Housenetwork had 17 photographs displayed in the property details.  Professional Photographs are taken with the best photographic equipment and wide angled lens, plus floor plans and local interest details come as standard.  


Which Guide to Online Estate Agents


The Which Guide to Online Estate Agents provides facts and figures and comparisons to the largest Online Estate Agents. Currently having less than 7% of the market of properties for sale the online Estate Agents seem to have less reason to over-value property. Overvaluing property is seen as a major disadvantage to property sellers and statistics show that they will lose money on their property sale in the long run and take longer to sell.


What is an Online Estate Agent?


The term 'online estate agent' was originally coined to refer to Estate Agent's who's main business base was their website and not local traditional high Street Offices. 


The reason that an online estate agent can charge you less and save you considerable sums of money is because they don't have as many expensive offices and overheads.


An Online Estate Agent, such as House Network, will get your property maximum exposure by showing your property details on property portals such as Rightmove, Findaproperty,  Fish4homes,  Propertyfinder,   Primelocation,   Zoopla   ThinkProperty,    Homes and Property, Look4aproperty,  and the Home Sale Network 


The only thing that an online estate agent can't do is conduct viewings for you. They will speak to you and the viewers by telephone.  However they are more efficient in dealing with your sale, negotiations and buyer communications than a high street estate agent, because they are not tied up conducting viewings and un-necessary valuations. Their resources and time are concentrated where needed and their website deals with clients who can choose a package and sign up on-line before arranging the visit, photography and property measure-up.


What is a property portal?


A property portal is a website which advertises a number of properties for sale across many different Estate Agents.  


Property portals facilitate easy searches and comparison of a large number of properties across many estate agents and deal with millions of property searches by buyers each month.


Instructing an Online Estate Agent

Instructing an online Estate Agent can save you thousands of pounds in Estate Agent fees.  You need to be sure first that you are happy to conduct your own viewings and have access to the internet so that you can set up your online account and check statistics and details.


Online Estate Agent, House Network has perfected their art since 2004.  Fees are approximately £425+ VAT include a home visit, full wide angled marketing photography, floorplans, full estate agent support services such as negotiations, checking the status of buyers offer and full liaison with all parties.
