Everyone’s familiar with the phrase ‘location, location, location’. When it comes to property, the neighbourhood it’s in is just as, if not more, important than the property itself. So when you’re selling your property in Essex you’ll want to make the most of its geographical advantages, whether that’s the sea views of Frinton, the transport links of Dagenham or the enchanting scenery of Saffron Walden.
It’s no surprise, then, that an understanding of the local area is a major factor when it comes to choosing an estate agent. If your estate agent knows the area well, they’ll know exactly how to market your property, and will be ready to answer any questions potential buyers might have about the region.
It’s a misconception that only high street estate agents have this knowledge – the online estate agent sector is booming, and to stay at the forefront of the property landscape many online agents now recruit local experts; individuals who know their patch inside and out. And it’s no exception in Essex.
In fact, all online estate agents are in a good position to give sellers a good deal. Charging a clear, fixed fee instead of a high street agent’s usual charge of 1.5% + VAT means you stand to save thousands on your sale. Plus an online agency offers transparency and convenience in ways many high street agencies don’t.
So whether you want to sell a premium commuter property in Brentwood, a picturesque cottage in leafy Tillingham or a family home anywhere in the RM postcode, an online estate agent with a great understanding of what makes Essex tick can be on hand to support you.
Adam Cast – eMoov in Essex
“I’ve been around property for a number of years working in the High Street and I finally saw the light when I moved over to online sector. Selling your property with emoov.co.uk makes so much sense because the process is exactly the same as what you would expect from a high street service but it’s better and the customer saves a fortune, although I spend a fortune feeding my passion of race cars.”

Essex is actually home to an entire online agency which specialises in the area. Griffin Residential had been trading for 30 years in the Southend and Castle Point areas before taking their business online, so it’s very well-positioned to give sellers the best of both worlds: local expertise and a great deal.

Using Griffin Residential allows you to use the website to sell your property directly. Our friendly team is still here to support you throughout the sales process – from negotiation to completion – and our extensive knowledge of the residential market means we are still on hand to guide you towards a smooth selling.”

“Born and raised in Essex, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. I’m a family man with 2 children and a wife who’s also an estate agent, so as you can imagine, property is a hot topic in our household! I’ve worked in the industry for 5 years now and have loved every minute. As a high street estate agent, I saw the internet changing the way way people look for and sell their homes and wanted to be part of it, so I’m thrilled to be working with YOPA.”
