“My partner saw an article in a magazine - Houseweb just
looked the best!"
Vicki Robinson told us about her first experience of
“We were living in a one bedroom flat, and needed to move
to somewhere bigger. My partner saw an article in a magazine
about people who had sold privately so we decided to give it a
go. There were three companies listed in the magazine - Houseweb
just looked the best, so we decided to go with them.
It was easy putting the advert together and we had a couple
of viewings early on. It went quiet over Christmas but in
February we had an offer which unfortunately fell through, then
in April we got two offers and we had to juggle with two
prospective buyers We had two estate agent valuations - one felt we could get about £136,000, the other thought
maybe £140,000. We
sold for £139,000 and saved about £1,400 in fees.
My advice to people selling privately would be:-
Don’t appear desperate when you have people
viewing, and make people think there are other people interested
in your property. Be
prepared for it not to go strictly to plan! Try not to be too
disappointed though when things don’t go to plan as it will
all sort itself out in the end.”
