6 Reasons why you need more than just an Online Estate Agent

A common misconception is that Blackadders is not an online estate agent. Quite to the contrary, the vast majority of our business is actually done online. We offer all of the same services with a whole host of additional benefits. We also give you all of the following in our Perth Office at a competitive fixed price:

1. Advertising Platforms
When you list with Blackadders, your property will be showcased in all of the major online platforms as well as your local Solicitors Property Centre website. The main advantage of using a firm like Blackadders is that we also have a ‘High Street’ presence coupled with a wealth of local knowledge. Your property will be advertised throughout the Blackadders branch network in addition to the local Solicitors Property Centre, giving you maximum exposure.

2. Property Matching 
With an online-only agent, your property is normally advertised on the property portals awaiting any interested parties. This is where we are different. With a vast database of willing buyers, we will actively match your property with a prospective purchaser.

3. Local Knowledge
An online agent is unlikely to know the local area. We have local negotiators in each of our branches with a fountain of knowledge and this can sometimes be the factor that seals the deal.  We will also negotiate on your behalf to ensure you obtain the best possible price.

4. Legal Knowledge
We have our own ‘in-house’ legal team. Once an offer is received, this is seamlessly passed on to complete the conveyancing. They are also on hand from the outset to answer any title queries before you even list your property.

5. 7-Day Service
We offer a 7-day service with a large proportion of our viewing enquires being received during the week between 5 pm and 8 pm.

6. Social Media Presence
We make extensive use of social media and also offer demographically targeted advertising to ensure your property is seen by the right people.

In summary, we can offer you maximum exposure at a competitive fixed cost. So if you actually want to sell your property instead of just listing, please contact a member of the Perth Property Team for more information.
