Leading online estate agent launches new website to give control back to homeowners
The UK’s leading online estate agent, I Am The Agent has shaken up what it means to sell or let a home online with a totally new look website which went live this week. The reinvigorated iamtheagent.com is a vibrant portal for homeowners, landlords, buyers and tenants, built on more than five years’ research and fuelled by feedback from 70,000 registered users.
The new website has been carefully crafted to simplify the process of buying and selling a property. Bridging the gap between homeowners and their prospective buyers or tenants, expect powerful new features including the ability to highlight the best bits of a house or flat and 24/7 access to update selling points in the cloud, on the go and at home.
Rebecca Peach, managing director of I Am The Agent, said, “Our vision is to make selling and renting a home simpler, clearer and cheaper with a professional, yet personal service that buyers and sellers alike can trust. We’ve worked with an expert team of web designers, marketers, property professionals and usability experts to take Iamtheagent.com to new heights. It’s intuitive, functional and adaptive, packed with useful tools, equipped with full access to some of the biggest property portals in the world and backed by an in-house team of estate agents.”
The new online portal provides users with a unique platform to creatively showcase their property. It follows the I Am The Agent ethos of ‘I Am Saving. I Am In Control. I Am The Agent’, and gives back control to homeowners so they can market their property as they see fit.
I Am The Agent operates a no hidden costs or charges policy. Its completely transparent service encompasses a number of options for sales and lettings, with a range of packages and support levels to suit all budgets and selling or letting experience. It is committed to going above and beyond what other online-only estate agents offer. Advertising timescales are generous, with a year allowed for sales and up to six months for lettings. The estate agent also offers assisted viewings as an optional extra. The most popular sales package comes with free pro photos and floor plan or an EPC.
Clients signing up to Iamtheagent.com are assigned a dedicated property assistant who will guide the user through the process from start to finish, as well as arrange assisted viewings if required.
Prices start at £19 to let, and £49 to sell. This makes them significantly cheaper than the industry average of £597, while giving users something extra – full control at the touch of a button.
