Springbok Properties is an online agent that will be of considerable interest if you are looking to sell your property quickly. They boast many impressive figures: 63% of their property sell (subject to contract) within 30 days, and 77% in 8 weeks.
In contrast to other quick sale agents and companies, Springbok Properties do not purchase your property themselves before looking to sell it on, but instead market to a network of investors, although that's not to say you won't find you property on Rightmove or Zoopla. This means that they make no guarantees about meeting 100% of market value, or selling it quickly, but believe their previous results speak for themselves.
As is the case with basically all of their competitors, selling quickly usually comes at a cost to the seller, whether it be in fees or the price they receive on their home.
Fees & Features of Packages
Unfortunately Springbok are not transparent about their fees. This is perhaps due to how they are willing to tailor their fees to sellers' circumstances.
We do know that their fees are only ever paid on completion, so if you home does not sell, you won't have to pay.
In terms of solid numbers, we've seen a figure of £3,500 mentioned most often, but have also seen mentions of fees up to £5,000. The price is likely to depend on your circumstances and how quickly you need the sale done.
As can be found in our review section for Springbok, on allAgents, 91% of reviews said they were happy with their fees.
Springbok Properties have cultivated a very good review profile on both allAgents and Trustpilot, with over 3,000 reviews between the two sites. They are rated 4.7 on allAgents, and 4.3 on Trustpilot.
On allAgents, 94% recommend, while on Trustpilot 84% rate them as good or better, with the vast majority rating them excellent. As always, it's worth looking into the reviews yourself to form your own opinion beyond the headline figures. However, Springbok Properties are one of the better rated agents we have covered.
The most obvious comparison to Springbok Properties is with Express Estate Agency, who are another online estate agency with a similar business model. You can view our head-to-head comparison here. Express Estate Agency's market share among online estate agents is substantially larger at roughly eight percent, in comparison to Springbok's 1%.
In comparison to other online estate agents, it is perhaps not appropriate to directly compare, as their focus is somewhat different. Springbok Properties will almost certainly be more expensive than most online agents, purely due to the fact that they are providing an accelerated service.
Springbok Properties won allAgents' 2014 Online Estate Agent of the Year award.
