Sellers are Saving Thousands Using Online Agents

Those selling their properties are saving thousands of pounds by opting for online-only services, rather than using traditional estate agents.

Flat rate fees can be as little as £450, instead of the estate agents’ charges, which are based on a percentage of the selling price.

Ricky Dew, 49, sold his home in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, for £230,000 in April. He saved almost £6,000 by using recently launched Yopa.co.uk.

Yopa boss Daniel Attia says that the website “provides the same service, while drastically cutting the cost.”1
