Smart shoppers know they should always consider their options before splashing the cash, which is why so many comparison services exist. They allow you to find the product or service that fit your criteria – and our online estate agent comparison tool is no exception.
But sometimes more than one service fits your needs, which is where our head-to-head tables come in. Here, you can see the finer details of the services offered by two online estate agents, so you can be sure you’re making the very best choice.
Here we compare eMoov and Tepilo. Emoov has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2010 and has benefitted from extraordinary investment interest. In fact, it set a record for the largest ever investment in a property tech company via an equity-based platform. It was also the first online agent to offer free virtual tours.
Tepilo, meanwhile, has benefited from bearing the well-known face of property guru Sarah Beeny, who originally launched the site in 2009 as a ‘for sale by owner’ service. The brand has since evolved into an online estate agency and has seen rapid growth since its makeover in 2013 – it’s now firmly established in the online estate agency landscape.
