Meet young mum Emily – the new face of selling your home at 10% of the price
Here is the face of selling your home in the future, at only 10% of the price.
Emily Harper is specialist trained and armed with an iPad to save the average house seller thousands of pounds by selling homes via FaceTime and Skype.
Her firm Agentonline.co.uk is an incredible 90% cheaper than traditional estate agents which have huge overheads, offices and fleets of cars.
Emily was trained up in a traditional estate agents before having her child, and will now use FaceTime and Skype to communicate effectively with sellers.
Houses will be sold via popular selling websites including Rightmove but the big difference will be that sellers are charged at about 10% of the price estate agents use (eg £649 + VAT instead of £6500 + VAT).
The new firm aims to beat TV’s Sarah Beeny in her venture by bringing the online agents alive through technology seven days a week. They will also use traditional phonecalls, email, Twitter and Facebook to communicate with house-sellers.
