Riding Solo: The Good, The Great & The Greater About Opting for a Sole Agency

“Sole Agency” is the term used when individuals who have property for sale choose to list it exclusively with one estate agency. Many believe that an open listing – one where the property is listed with multiple agencies – will translate into a swift sale, as it means better exposure. In actual fact, the opposite may be true. Our experienced team at Frank Salt Real Estate explains some of the benefits of opting for a sole agency agreement.

1. Deal With Less

Receiving loads of phone calls and keeping track of viewings and appointments by a multitude of agents from different agencies can be a tricky and tedious task. Listing your property with a sole agency makes it easier for you to track the effort being made.

2. Get The Best Price

Since your potential buyers are common to one agency, agents have control of the buyers competing for your property and can therefore get you the best price.

3. Sell Faster

Property consultants generally prioritise their sole agency listings over their open agency ones which may result in your property being on the market for longer, and in turn, may force you to consider a reduction in price. We increase exposure of sole listings on their advertising media and to clients who are looking to buy, therefore considerably increasing the chances of a faster sale. In fact, 70% of our sole agency listings are sold in less than 75 days!
