99home offers a free desktop (sales expert prepares a property valuation report) as well as online valuation and free property listing services which you can use for a “Try before you buy” service and upgrade later if you are satisfied with your ad. You can list your property 100% free on the 99home website if you wish. We are unsure if Other agents provide desktop valuation or not, but yes, they do provide online valuations. It seems like Other agents does not have free property listing options on their website.
Customer service is the backbone for any business. People say the best quality and service comes with only expensive products and services. Here, 99home and Other agents both proved this wrong.
Both companies provide better service than lots of other high street agents as well as hybrid/online estate agents.
Nevertheless, 99home is leading this front and is undoubtedly the UK’s number one Online Estate Agent with 5/5 trust rating on Trustpilot as well as AllAgent. While Other agents has a 4.7/5 trust score on Trustpilot and 4.2/5 on AllAgent.
|1st in the UK||17th in the UK|
Buying or selling a home comes with financial worry and is stressful enough that sales may fall through. Home Seller’s Protection Insurance and Home Buyer Protection Insurance helps provide cover for conveyancing fees, mortgage fees, searches fees, etc should the sale of the property fail.
99home offers its Combo and High street customers free seller protection where Other agents is not covering it at this moment.
