So whats the difference between selling your home Online and selling via traditional estate agents ?
The main, or rather, only difference between selling your home online and with a high street estate agents is the price. High street agents charge a lot more for their services than selling your home with an online estate agent. This can be traced back to the fact that high street estate agents are more expensive to run, as they need to rent more premises to access customers.
