My thoughts would be that an online estate agent could be as good as a high street agent. On the plus side you could save much money opting for the online agent. The down side could be that an online agent might not know your area as well as the high street agent would when marketing property in that specific area. Whether one or the other works harder to sell property, that I would imagine comes down to the attitude of the company or person/s working for them.

In our case, we offer a wider marketing reach than almost all the local agents and fees that are 50% lower than all but the cheapest agents. Unlike the "internet" agents, we are based locally and have simply chosen to trade without expensive premises, the savings are passed back to our clients by way of lower fees.

We tried several local agents to sell our property, to no avail. It has been on the market for seven years!! One agent had it for 3 years and we didn't get a single viewer. We put it with an online agent last year, and we so far have had 3 genuine viewers, which I believe was down to me contacting them after they made an initial enquiry. The online agent is a fixed fee, paid when we put in on with them. It was just over £200. It remains till sold, with no further fees to pay. Love our house, in no rush to move, but we will have to go one day.
