Comparing the online estate agent market allows you to find the agent that best fits your needs? Whether that be based on price, services offered or specific expertise – our online estate agent comparison tool makes it easy. But there may be times when two or more agents fit the bill
That is where our head-to-head comparisons come in handy. Here you can see the finer details associated with each agent, so you can make a choice that’s right for you.
Here we’re comparing YOPA and Purplebricks – both respected ‘hybrid’ agents which offer a selection of add-ons to their basic packages, so you can truly tailor make your online sales experience.
YOPA is a well-known brand thanks to its memorable TV advertising – something which has translated into growth for the business: it aims to recruit 20 or so specialist agents every month to support the growing company. Great news for sellers looking for an estate agent with local knowledge.
Purplebricks boasts similar credentials. Its recognisable branding has helped propel the organisation to the top spot when it comes to the UK’s largest online agents – success which is spilling internationally. The company recently opened offices in Australia and has plans to dominate the US market too.
