Online estate agents in Birmingham: agencies with local property experts

Birmingham is known as the UK’s ‘second city’, and with a population surpassing one million its property market is one of the busiest in the country. So if you’re looking to sell in or around Birmingham, you’ll certainly have your choice when it comes to estate agents.

People take into account a whole variety of factors when they choose their estate agent. Word-of-mouth recommendations are valuable, while others might choose an agent based on factors such as opening hours or proximity to the property they’re trying to sell. After all, it’s not ideal choosing an estate agent based in the London Borough of Sutton if you’re up in Sutton Coldfield or Stratford in East London when you live in Stratford-upon-Avon!

But whatever your reasons for choosing a particular agent, you want to make sure they know the Birmingham area. After all, the better they know the city, the better they’re able to sell your property: they’ll know the location highlights that’ll attract buyers, and be able to answer the questions that could make or break the sale.

Traditionally, sellers relied on high street estate agents for this local knowledge, and while the online estate agent sector is booming, people still – understandably – have concerns about its ability to get to truly get to the heart of any one region.

This is why a number of online estate agents have started employing local experts: property sales professionals who know the local area like the back of their hands.

For example, YOPA has a large bank of individuals who know, love, work and live in their local areas.

Online estate agents that boast local expertise give you the best of both worlds, then. You get the local knowledge you’d normally associate with a high street agent, but for a fraction of the price: where traditional estate agents charge around 1.5% + VAT, an online agent will charge a clear fixed fee. And they offer a host of other benefits, too, such as 24/7 communication and the ability to schedule viewings and appointments at a time that suits your schedule – not their schedule.

So whether you’re looking to sell a student house in leafy Edgbaston, a family home in contemporary Harborne or a pied de terre near all the action in B5, choose an online estate agent for a local expert who’ll be there to help you every step of the way.

Antony Morris

Born & bread in the Midlands I know the local area well. As I’ve discovered selling your property isn’t always simple but giving honest, knowledgeable, transparent advice from the valuation to completion has always stood me in good stead. Selling a house is as much about knowing the owners, there needs & aspirations as it is about the bricks and mortar so with this in mind my focus will always be to achieve the best possible price for my client’s property whilst retaining a friendly, open approach any time of the day.”
