A lot of our clients ask us how our service differs from a traditional estate agent. We explain some of these differences below.
First off, some of the obvious advantages of selling to us…
On the negative side, often sellers will receive a better price when selling on the open market.
But the difference may not be as much as you would expect. Once you total up the costs of sale and time delays, there is not a massive difference.
