Northern Ireland’s first online estate agency launched with the creation of 12 new jobs
Buying and selling a property in Northern Ireland is about to undergo a fundamental change which could save home owners thousands of pounds following the launch of a new online estate agent.
With the creation of 12 new jobs, Sure2Sell has introduced a unique and innovative model that will help residents in Northern Ireland sell or let their property without the high fees charged by conventional estate agents. In short, Sure2Sell promises ‘Expertise without the high fees’.
With 95% of property searches now beginning online, the new website, www.sure2sell.co.uk, aims to replace the role of the conventional estate agent and provide property buyers and sellers with a more cost effective and transparent transaction process.
Sure2Sell offers customers a range of cost-effective payment options replacing the typical transaction fees of 1.5 – 2% of the property value currently being charged by conventional estate agents,
Sure2sell offers 4 selling options from a one off flat fee of £375* until the property is sold (irrespective of the value of the property and no commission on the final sale) through to a ‘No sale, no fee’ scenario with only £900 on a successful sale. What’s more, landlords renting their properties won’t pay any fees until their property is rented (No tenant, no fee).
Sure2Sell has created a bespoke online property platform network which will see registered properties being advertised on more than 300 websites including some of Northern Ireland’s largest property portals such as Property News, Property Pal, Zoopla, and daft.com .
Brian Nelson, managing Director of Sure2Sell said: “Despite monumental changes in technology in the last decade, the way we buy and sell houses in Northern Ireland has remained unchanged for the last fifty years. Current research shows that when people are looking for a new property they do not make an appointment with an estate agent, they do not drive around the area they would like to move to – they go online. In fact, 95% of property searches start online, so at Sure2Sell we one hundred percent believe there is no better way to advertise your property.
“Our business philosophy is expertise without the high fees. If house buyers and sellers start the process online why not finish it there too and achieve considerable savings at the same time.
We have created 12 new jobs and with this have developed an experienced team and each customer will have their own personal property manager to ensure a complete and transparent service.
Sure2Sell has also partnered with Connect & Protect Financial Ltd., an appointed representative of Openwork, bringing access to thousands of mortgage lenders across Northern Ireland. A decision in principle can be obtained within 24 hours
