Rightmove is NOT an estate agent!

Many of you will be asking why I am stating the obvious. Well, on my ‘travels’ I am continually discovering the misconception that Rightmove is in fact an online estate agency. For those of you who have just thought ‘what is it then?’ – Rightmove is a website that estate agents use to advertise properties for sale and let, and it is the 6th most popular website in the UK! A similar site is Zoopla that does pretty much the same job, plus there are many others that don’t attract quite as much traffic.

Reports suggest that over 90% of buyers now find property online by using such sites. This   removes the need to visit all the estate agents to find out what is for sale; it easier to search them all in one go from the comfort of your home, and then you can just call the agent to arrange a viewing when you see a property that you are interested in.

So why are there still so many high street estate agents? Good question – it won’t be long…
