    What are people's experience with online estate agents? I see they charge less than a grand. Are they as good as normal estate agents?

    There are a number of different threads that discuss this subject.

    In many cases it's a pay upfront listing service, without many of the services offered by traditional EAs. However, there a number of firms offering their services, all with different package options. You need to decide ho much work you are prepared to do, and how much assistance you will require.

    Our experience is that when things have gone wrong (frequently on our last escapade) having estate agents in the chain with a physical presence was invaluable. Right up to completion day they were on the phone chivvying along banks and solicitors, and our vendors agent also dealt wonderfully with a tearful me who had travelled up alone to our new home town to meet our removals guys while our transaction was hanging in the balance for a few hours.
