so far for us purplebricks are atrocious.
Be careful. Purplebricks care so much for their customer that they have outsourced their call center to a telemarketer in Southend. So you won't be dealing with the company you have paid for.
I signed up with eMoov to sell my house a couple of years ago! No viewings although I did get 2 or 3 calls from eMoov (1 was re: a completely different property and seller but we shared the same house number! And another was to arrange a viewing for a no show, rang eMoov and they told me "oh sorry they cancelled but we would of rang you to confirm as the call to arrange doesn't class as confirmation itself!)
A year later we signed up with a local agent and sold within 3 months!)

I got the impression from eMoov that once they had their money they were happy to let your house rot on rightmove! I actually exchanged some emails with the CEO and found his attitude to be quite flippant with the only advise he gave being to "lower the price" which was already at the bottom end of market value. When we took on the high street agent I explained that I needed to reach asking price in order to cover their fees and they got the job done!

I'm not saying high street agents aren't expensive but at least (in my case) they got the job done with good communication!

its all about being on RightMove, not who's the agent. Everyone searches RightMove when looking for a house so who the agent is makes little difference in getting people to view your house. That's my opinion anyways.
I would agree.
I love people slagging off estate agents all believing they can do it themselves....you could all fix your own cars yourself, find your own bargains yourselves, teach the your own kids.....you don't though - you rely on others who have more expertise in those areas because it is more sensible, time efficient and easier. Most estate agents are very professional and well informed about the housing market and the processes involved in marketing and selling houses. Online agents have a place but remember you pay most of them upfront - where is their incentive to sell your property compared to a traditional estate agent who is paid upon completion??
Absolute twaddle. Selling a house yourself via a board or an online estate agent is so very simple - If I can do it then anyone can! Just as long as the online estate agent can put your house on right move, zoopla or prime location then all potential buyers will see the house. Estate agents are often nothing more than poorly qualified smart suited salesmen - on a par with double glazing salesmen - who do very little to earn the outrageous fees charged, including up front fees for producing the documentation! For my house, spending around £500 to sell means that I saved several thousand pounds. The last agent I used ten years ago, working for one of high profile agents, simply had no command of English grammar and couldn't spell so I ended up doing a lot towards the house description - and then they couldn't find a buyer.

So you used a bad agent 10 years ago and from that deduce all estate agents are bad?
I put my second last house on the market with a local agent who was recommended by quite a few people.
He valued it £20k over what i knew it was worth, but assured me he had a couple of buyers lined up. Being the first time I had sold, I fell for it. I had to correct the spelling mistakes he made on rightmove, I took photos and sent them over for him to replace as his were too dark and get him to correct his '3 Bedroom House' description to 4 bed like it really was.
6 weeks later they rang me and told me they thought I was asking too much, they weren't happy when I pointed out they were the ones who suggested that price and I had expressed my concerns at the time.

I took it off them and went with a different agent, had 3 offers within a week of them putting it on the market.

So there are good and bad agents.
