Selling your property can seem like a daunting task, so you need to know the sale is in good hands. That’s why it’s important to find the right online estate agent for your particular needs, and you can do so using our online comparison tool to find the agents that fit the bill.
Sometimes, though, you’ll find more than one that ticks your boxes, which is where our head-to-heads come in handy. Here you can look at the finer details of each company, so you have all the information you need to make the best decision.
Here we’re comparing YOPA and Tepilo. YOPA has carved a niche for itself as a hybrid agent, offering all the usual online estate agent services with the extras you’d get from a high street agency, such as accompanied viewings and local knowledge. Specialist regional knowledge is a big deal for YOPA, which aims to recruit 20 new local experts every month – so you can be sure they know your area as well as you do.
Tepilo is fronted by Channel 4 property guru Sarah Beeny, who brings her extensive experience to a company that has grown and evolved alongside the UK property market. What started as a ‘for sale by owner’ business in 2009 transformed into an online agency in 2013, and now the company offers a range of acclaimed property-selling packages to many satisfied customers.
