Letting agent VS estate agent: The differences

If you are intending to sell your property, or lease your property, then it is important that you use the correct type of property service. Should you use an estate agent or would a letting agent better suit your needs? Below we consider the letting agent VS estate agent and the differences between the two services.

What is an estate agent for?

Primarily, the estate agent is responsible for buying and selling property. They provide this service on your behalf. They will advertise your property online and in the agency, organise viewings and help finalise the sale of your property, dealing with all of the associated paperwork. Some, but not all estate agents, also offer letting services.

What is a letting agent responsible for?

Letting agents are responsible for letting out your property. Many choose to use this type of service when they own several properties or have limited time to manage their rental property. A letting agent can also take care of prospective tenants and manage the property for you.

Which is right for you?

So, it is important that you choose the correct type of service to meet your needs. If you need to sell or buy a property then an estate agent is the obvious choice. If you own a rental property then you need to use a letting agent.

Here at Charles Rose, we offer both letting and estate agent services.
