Strike Estate Agents Vs YOPA

Strike Estate Agents or YOPA: Which is the best for you?

It's natural that you might be interested in directly comparing Yopa to Strike if you've been studying our best online estate agents rankings, where Yopa are ranked 1st compared to Strike ranked 3rd. The main difference you might notice is that Yopa will charge you £999 or more, while Strike will sell your house for completely free. So what's the best option for you? Let's find out.

What's the difference? Fees & Features.

The core services are similar from our point of view: Valuations, floorplans, professional photography, a dedicated agent, property portal presence, a For Sale board, negotiation and sales progression are all provided no matter what package you choose with either.

The main difference when just looking from a bird's eye view, is that Strike is free, and Yopa is not. Yopa's lowest-priced service is £999, and their "No Sale, No Fee" package is £1,999 upon successful sale, should you be worried about paying for an agent without actually selling your house.

The first significant difference that might change the equation for you is whether you opt for hosted viewings. This is not included with either agent's standard packages, and are paid add-ons. Once applied the costs become closer: Using Yopa's basic/standard "Pay Now Core" package, it is an additional £300, bringing the total cost to £1,299 if you're outside London (and £1,799 if you're considered in the area). With Strike, the viewings package is £699, so if you're adamant you don't want to host viewings yourself, the price to consider is likely now £1,299 vs £699, reducing the difference in price from £999 to £600 between the two when comparing their most competitive offerings.
