Consumer organisation the HomeOwners Alliance has produced a new chart revealing how individual online agents compare with each other in terms of achieving asking price.
Yopa comes top, apparently achieving 98%, with new online agency firm Doorsteps in second place with a 97% record.
The HomeOwners Alliance, which is one-third owned by conveyancing firm ULS, says that online agents tend to be more successful than average high street agents, achieving 95.85% of asking price, against a national average of 95.69%.
However, the body says that the top 1,000 high street agents “continue to outperform their online counterparts”.
In June, the HomeOwners Alliance dished out ‘free badges’ to the top 1,000.
- Paula Higgins of the HomeOwners Alliance clarified this morning that the percentages shown are of the initial asking price.
