Purple Brick Versus I Am The Agent
If you are weighing up the pros and cons of online estate agents, we have put together a neat little
comparison table for you so you can quickly check out prices across the board and see where you are getting best value for your hard- earned money when selling your house online.
Purple Bricks may suggest in their extensive (and expensive!) advertising campaign that they were ‘the first ever 24/7 online estate agent’, but that’s not actually true. I Am the Agent was established in 2009 and offered the first truly 24/7 enquiry line and service way back then, with a 24/7 tenant and buyer hotline, so we never miss a lead.
We are also x 3 cheaper than Purple Bricks, we equally have an excellent Trustpilot rating and our
additional services are also cheaper. We offer assisted viewings with local property specialists and give all the services of a traditional estate agent but for a fraction of the price. We have been established for a lot longer and have let and sold over 9,400 properties, so we know our market.
We also have a longer marketing period on Zoopla and Rightmove. So on this occasion our online sales
package wins hands down for value.
From the start, the I Am The Agent ethos has been ‘transparency, savings and a trusted community’. So here is a quick breakdown of what we offer. The savings are HUGE, check it out for yourself:
In fact, savvy homeowners, you can save even more when selling a property with us, as our sales package is over £500 less than Purple Bricks, and you get more for your money with us to boot! Londoners might like to know that we don’t discriminate against them either. We know it’s already massively-expensive everywhere, so with I Am the Agent one price fits all.So do check out the comparisons in the table above before parting with your hard earned cash.
