The answer is yes. But you probably want more details, which why we’ve created this post about why you should sell your home online.
This handy guide explains on what selling your home online entails. Just think of this as your A to Z for all things selling your home online.
Sell, sell, sell
Your selling experience might take place online, but it starts with a human. Once you’ve requested a callback, one of our team will be in touch to give you the lowdown on everything you need to know. From looking at the housing market in your local postcode to suggesting a price for your home, they’re here to make sure that you feel 100% confident in your decision to sell. Check out our agent’s feedback below:
If you’re happy with everything, we’ll send a professional photographer round to your home so they can take snazzy pictures and create a floorplan. We’ll then use these images to promote your property and attract buyers.
Listing your property
Once the photos are complete, it’s time to create your listing for our website, and the property portals, Rightmove, Zoopla, and Primelocation. Don’t worry; it’s super easy, with our property description tool creating the all-important words for your listing – which you can edit. We’ll then verify the description once you’re happy.
As soon as you give us the green light, we’ll pop your home on the property market. The listing includes 12 months of marketing from us and, If you decide to remove your property in that time, we’ll freeze the marketing until you put it back online with us.
Potential buyers can start making requests for viewings as soon as your property goes live. It’s the property viewings where you have the freedom to control your sale. There’s no need to arrange suitable times with an agent, who then has to ask the buyer if they’re available.
Instead, communication takes place between you and the person making the request – with our support team always on hand. All that’s left is to get your property viewing-ready and start showing it to potential buyers.
By this point, you’ve probably had a fair few viewings. Assuming all goes well, potential buyers will start making offers on your property. You can accept and negotiate offers in your personal dashboard, and our team are on hand 24/7 to qualify buyers and offer you impartial advice.
The final decision is down to you, but our team will draw on their experience to guide you through the offer. We also chase solicitors and agents in terms of speeding the process up and trying to shorten any chains that may be in place.
Once a sale goes through we are still just a call away should you have any queries or need any advice. Emoov is centred on the customer and giving them the best experience: we pride ourselves on providing a fully comprehensive service that is with you every step of the way.
