What makes Robert Alan Homes Different From Other Estate Agents That Offer Fixed Selling Fees?

We are different because we are not an online estate agent and online estate agents have hidden charges, IE they charge extra for marketing boards, EPC, Floorplans, Brochures, Attended Viewings By An Agent, Upgrading Your Listings On Property Portals,  Liaising With Solicitors. We also liaise with you on all offers, feedback, with negotiations on your behalf.

Do I Have To Pay Up Front?

No.  Unlike our competitors we don’t take any fees up front, you only pay our fees once your property has been sold.

Do I pay if my home does not sell?

No. If Robert Alan Homes don’t complete the sale of your home there will be zero costs.

Will I Get The Same Level Of Service?

No.  You will get a better level of service!  As we are an independent estate agent who have been operating for nearly 20 years, and have experienced long standing staff who know the areas, and understand your property value and know how to sell property you can expect a higher level of service.  We dont contract self employed agents to view your home like our competitors, all our staff are employed by the Company.

How Do You Market My Property?

We are members of the major property portals Rightmove, Zoopla, Primelocation, Nethouseprices, Gumtree etc.  Robert Alan Homes also has a full SEO marketing strategy inhouse. Put simply we can compete with the large corporates at selling your home.

Do You Charge For Marketing Add Ons Like Other Fixed Selling Fees I Have Seen Online?

No. With our competitors you will only receive the most basic listing of your home.  With Robert Alan Homes you get the full package as standard and your property will be featured, where applicable, at no extra charge.

How Do I know You Won't Just Value My Home Cheaply Just To Sell it Quickly?

As a professional estate agent our core role is to get you the very best price on your property and we don´t need an incentive based commission to do so. 

We research the market and liaise with you at the valuation stage to agree on a market price, once this has been agreed then the process will start, it’s in our interest to sell your home. 

With our competitors it’s not really a priority as they have been paid their fee up front, thus meaning that if your home is not sold they still get paid.

How Do I Get Started to Sell My Home with Robert Alan Homes?

The first step after reading this Selling My House FAQ is to get your free no obligation valuation.  We have two free valuation methods available. The first is an instant online valuation based on your postcode and the second is a personal home visit valuation. 

The instant online valuation is less accurate as it does not take into account your property features but is nonetheless a good place to start.  The home visit valuation by one of our sales agents is far more accurate and we can discuss with you ways to increase the value of your property.

How Can I Contact You?

We would love to meet you at our office in person. You can also call us on +44 20 8986 2222, email us at robert@robertalanhomes.com, or fill in your details online to get your Free Property Valuation.
