Next Home – Still leading the way for 2015
Please read further as we believe the chances of selling your home for the price you want has just reduced further in 2015!
In the UK there are up to around 25 main property portals, but there are 2 main ones which drive most of the traffic. Rightmove and Zoopla. Now Rightmove boasts almost 70% of the UK’s traffic will use their portal first to find properties and I would have to agree. If you are not on Rightmove you might as well expect to lose out on potential leads to sell your home.
But an equally important fact reported by Zoopla, who also feed properties to Primelocation and S1 homes report that over 31% unique buyers visit their site who do not use Rightmove are a hugely important mix when it comes to marketing your home.
Your agent has just dropped one of these portals and you have just lost a major opportunity to market your property. This may result in either no sale or your agent constantly asking you to drop your price usually by £5000 to achieve a result. The reason we think they are asking you to change your price possibly because the Company they work for had tied their hands! If this rings a bell keep reading.
They can no longer offer you Zoopla, Primelocation and S1 Homes.
Now, this is the scary part.
If the Company you have chosen promised you the best UK’s websites, and I am sure at the time was one of the main reasons you chose to use their services and now has done a ‘u turn’ and started telling you it is not important, would you not ask why?
One very simple answer ‘it’s cheaper for the agent to advertise with ‘On the market’
So have you had a refund in your marketing? Your agent’s costs have dramatically reduced!
Zoopla has been one of the major portals throughout Perthshire for around 2 years now and buyers are very used to using this to find a home because everyone is on it. You have now dissapareared and visually it may look to a buyer that you have gone off the market.
So in 2015 this is our pledge:
Yes we will actively encourage all sellers to opt for the best websites for maximum exposure! Which includes Rightmove, Zoopla, Primelocation and S1 homes.
No we will not reduce the chances of attracting more buyers by dropping the UK’s second largest property portal to save money! This is a false economy our reputation is about receiving the very best price! This potentially could lose you thousands!
So if you would like an agent who puts you first we would be delighted to explain how we can help get you moving.
