Online Kent Property (OKP) is and internet property sales and letting service. Unlike any other internet based property sales and letting or traditional high street estate agents service OKP provides a localised service to the country of Kent. We provide a strong emphasis on being viewed as part of the community, a service provider that helps those buying, selling renting and letting, improve their standard of living with their next property purchase at a low cost. Our top priority is to allow you to take complete control of how you sell or let your property by selecting and paying only for the services you need.
We are not an estate agent and do not come to the market with all the cost burdens this brings so therefore we've approached property sales and letting from a completely different angle. We've started from a blank sheet of paper and thought 'if you were designing a process to fit for today’s market, with its technology, information sources and attitude towards sales, what would it look like?
Twenty years ago there was on choice and only one way to sell your property, you used a high street estate agent. In In 2000 Rightmove was founded which completely and utterly changed the way we searched and sold property. In 2008 Zoopla was founded providing the UK with another major property search portal. In 2009/10 the Office of Fair Trading released a study stating that “the use of the estate agent to value property has been greatly diminished”. In 2016 Online Kent Property are the other choice to the traditional high street. How we market property has been changing and will continue to change to such a point that the next generation of property buyers want know what an estate agent is.
Those that no longer wish to use the traditional estate agent services don’t need to. We believe that the estate agent service has not kept pace with modern thinking and tools that are now so readily available. We also believe that commission fees, based upon the price of your property, is an unfair way of charging for services. Our fees are based upon the amount of work that is involved not how much you sell your property for.
We know that there is more than one way to sell property and feel it is our mission to share all the necessary tools and knowledge to give you that alternative opportunity.
