the Experts in Property, the network of nearly 80 independent estate agency offices across the South West, has launched a hard-hitting campaign illustrating why sellers should use traditional estate agencies rather than internet-based listing agencies to sell their home. 

As part of the campaign, a video commissioned by the network titled ‘What, no commission? Listing call centres v full service estate agents’, is expected to go viral on social media. The straight-talking cartoon-style video features a discussion between a seller and an online-only listing agency representative, about the service she will receive and the fee she will be charged to sell her home. 




The conversation highlights the fact that fees are charged up front and are payable whether the property sells or not; that the seller must do her own viewings unless she pays more; and that there would be no, or very little support after a sale on her home is agreed.

Orchards Estates, the progressive 24/7 estate agency, is strengthening its presence in Ilminster and the surrounding areas with a dedicated property expert and plans for a new office.

Established in 2014, the highly successful agency achieved fantastic things just six months in when it began to out-perform its competitors in terms of both marketing and selling more homes than any other in the area. It has since won multiple awards for its service and earlier this year, extended its reach into the west of the county, from Taunton to Minehead, with the appointment of licensed agent Jeremy Darvill. 

Hennings Moir, the Experts in Property in Saltash, has once again embraced the latest in technological marketing with the introduction of immersive 360° virtual reality tours.

The busy estate agency is now offering the tours as part of its marketing package for homes. 

The tours are pretty fantastic – so real, they effectively create the ultimate in open house events by being permanently open and available at all times.
