Esale Online Estate Agents

THE HOUSE THAT TALKED

We had to take or hats off  to someone who beat us to a novel way to sell your house on the internet. It’s what we do for a living and to be honest we thought we had all the bases covered. We advertise our clients’ homes on all the major portals, we have a state-of-art website (how do you like the new one, by the way?) we’re active on all the main social media channels, we use video and - seeing as you’re reading it - we guess you know we also blog quite regularly. But still someone – and someone possibly not even in the property game – came up with a new way of getting their home in front of buyers. How? Well, put simply, they gave their house in Bradford its own Twitter account.

Do I need an estate agent?

The way property is bought and sold in the UK is changing. The majority of purchasers find their property on the internet. Gone have the days of trawling the high street estate agents collecting brochures. People want instant access to all the properties available from the comfort of their own. The three big property websites, Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location cater for this need, they have invested millions of pounds in convincing buyers that there is no need to look for a property elsewhere. The key to selling your own property is advertising it on one, or preferably all of the big three websites.
