Working with a hybrid agent

When you are looking to sell your home it is a very important time. To make sure you get the most out of the agent in charge of that deal, it is wise to contact 2/3 estate agents in Peterborough to see what they offer you as part of the sales package.

Traditionally people have opted for high street agents, but with the rise of the digital age there are several methods you can use to sell your home.

You need to think about how an agent is going to advertise and market your home. Just having your property in a paper and in a shop front is not enough. Every professional agent should be using the three main online portals of Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location.

An online agent will offer cheaper prices but will either get you or another agent to do viewings on your behalf. Cheaper doesn’t always mean better and if you are looking for a combination of excellent price plus local knowledge and online presence then a hybrid agent is the way forward.

Like an online agent, a hybrid will work out of a home office or office that is not a traditional shop front. Hybrid agents offer all the same benefits of being part of the three main portals as well as having a good social media presence. A hybrid agent will also conduct all the viewings and manage the sale.

Any savvy agent nowadays understands that social media is an effective tool to get properties in front of a wider audience.
