There is GOOD and BAD to report. The FEE is amazing!!! Including VAT I will have paid £700 opposed to the £4,500 the estate agent wanted. Tom was BRILLIANT at coming round to take photographs, and great pics too!!! The 22 pics were on Rightmove within several hours on a Friday. By Sunday we had 5 viewings!!! Great stuff.
We had no problems with Property Eagle taking calls from potential buyers and calling us to arrange their visit. Additionally, we were more than happy to offer the tour ourselves because we could afford more useful information to the viewers. We had our first offer within 3 days and a buyer in place within a week.
However, once the buyer was in place our status on Rightmove was changed to "Under Offer" which meant nobody saw the property unless they specifically "ticked" a box to see properties that were subject to contracts being exchanged. However, this buyer was taking too long to send a surveyor and we struggled to get any solid information from Property Eagle. They really fell down on this area. I had to be very forceful to get us "back on the market" and off the "Under Offer" listing so that we could look for another potential buyer (not to gazump, but to find a buyer in a better position).
The great news is we found another buyer within 5 days. This time we took the details of the potential buyer and by-passed Property Eagle. We were able to discuss the offer price, organise further viewings with parents, etc and push everything through quickly. From viewing to sell, just under 4 weeks!!!
So, my advice, USE PROPERTY EAGLE... they\'ll save you a fortune. Rightmove is the powerful tool that you need to be on and they\'ll do that quickly and efficiently. However, you\'ll need to MANAGE the team and ensure they are on top of everything. If you\'re in a rush to sell, you\'ll need to be even more direct and not afraid to pick up the phone and call the team. At the end of the day these guys found us a buyer TWICE and only charged £700 including VAT... saving us £3,800... can\'t complain!!!!!
