There are two types of real estate agents in the marketplace today. The first one is the traditional agent which is commonly called high street agents and the online agents. Both of them earn a commission but some people will choose online agents because of the huge amount they can save.
Online agents offer a fixed fee package while traditional agents mostly charge 1.5% of the priced achieved. However, traditional agents provide clients with window shop exposure. They also have more local knowledge compared to online agents who uses data in valuing properties. But for people who want to take part in the selling process of their homes, they can choose online real estate agents because they allow the owners to hold the viewing of their property.
