There is no doubt that the advancement of the Internet has changed the rules of property marketing. Over the years some owner assisted selling websites have popped up (in fact this is our beginnings but that is another story). While the concept is great and offers huge saving to the savvy seller, not everyone is comfortable doing this.

Of course, there is still the tried and tested estate agent model, mostly dominated by established brands. This route to market is usually at higher commission levels.
