Local estate agents are the obvious choice because of course they know their local area well. Perhaps you considered an online estate agent because of the fixed fees. You’ll certainly have consulted friends and family. But selling an apartment isn’t the same as selling any other property on the market. A couple of ten-minute viewings and the usual marketing channels don’t always cut it.

An estate agent that specialises in apartment selling, however, could make a real difference. Agents like us have the experience and knowledge of the apartment industry and understand the often difficult and emotional journey of selling and buying an apartment, putting the needs and requirements of the seller or buyer first.

So just how is a specialist estate agent better positioned to sell your apartment over a standard estate agency?

1.  Apartment specialists understand the specific leases that come with the sale, and they usually have a process in place to stop the sale falling through. At The Apartment Company, we have actually managed to lower our fall through rate from the national average of 37.5% to just 5%!

2. We know how to market your apartment correctly. We ensure that the RIGHT benefits of your apartment are highlighted to the right audience; to fit the specific needs of apartment buyers. 

3. We already have databases full of buyers specifically LOOKING for apartments like yours. This means not only can we find the right buyers quickly, but there’s no wasted time coming from viewings with the wrong people.

4. The difference between the best and worst offer for your home is typically around 7-10% of the sale. That’s a lot of money to be throwing away by going with a standard agent who may get you in the lower percentage of that sale. By investing correctly in a specialist agent, you know they have the knowledge and right marketing to get you to the upper portion of that percentage, and so getting you better value for your apartment. Don’t make the mistake of paying more in the end because you didn’t want to go with that better agent.
