Homes worth £1million-plus now being sold web-only

The company specialises in selling properties fast by encouraging sellers to take a RICS survey and discount this by at least 10%. Often the company gets a higher priced sale than expected from buyers who are in a position to purchase relatively swiftly.

The £1.7million house in North London is on its site for £1.3 million, giving a massive 23.5% discount off the market value.
The detached property is situated over four floors with eight bedrooms, three reception rooms and a gym room.

There is no onward chain, but the house is in need of modernisation including its swimming pool building and derelict pool.

Mark Brogan, Managing Director, Express Estate Agency said: "People are growing more comfortable with using online estate agents and appreciate that their properties get a wider viewing audience. They can certainly trust us to work closely with them and fulfil their needs professionally, even if they haven’t met us face-to-face.

"We are very pleased to have this property, which also has the added advantage of gaining significant value through refurbishment and/or extension (subject to local planning laws). The property also has off-road parking and back and front gardens."
