Changing Local estate agency
At Up Estates we are changing local estate agency by offering transparent, low cost packages whilst providing the highest level of service. Starting at £590+vat these packages are based on a low fixed fee and not on a set percentage taken on the sale price of your property.
With over 90% of buyers now starting their property search online [source rightmove] we know the way buyers look for their next property has changed. But we also know that the local estate agent is still essential in the sales process. This is why at Up Estates we believe it is time to change local estate agency. All we have done is removed the high street office and instead operate from a regional office having local MNAEA qualified estate agents working and specialising in your area. This means we provide the same local benefits, including local marketing and the ability to carry out accompanied viewings but at a fraction of the price!
