Selling a landed property physically or online is not a walk-in-the-park kind of stunt. This is even more difficult if a person is trying to do it on his/her own. Firstly, such a person might not be able to give an accurate value of the property, as they are not an expert in that field. This will lead to one giving ridiculous prizes on such properties, leading to it being difficult to sell. If one is having difficulty in selling landed property, the right thing to do is to contact an estate agency. They are professional in that field and have updated knowledge on market demands. Many centuries ago, people were stuck with the traditional estate agents. These people access properties physically, estimate their value, put up adverts and try to get a buyer for the seller. They do this for a percentage commission of the total purchase price. As the world began to advance in technology, the internet emerged, thus making it possible for one to sell their landed properties online. The major advantage of engaging an online estate agent is that sellers can save more money, as they receive lesser commission compared to the traditional estate agent. Initially, these online estate agencies only accept advert of the property in question, without due assessment. Subsequently, some of the online estate agents integrated a hybrid kind of system, where they assign a local estate agent to access and evaluate the property. Yopa is an online estate agency that claims to connect sellers to buyers.
