“The process of putting my advert on
the site was enjoyable and straightforward!” Martin
“My last property was very beautiful and
unique and the agents had trouble finding interest. Using an
online mechanism was a sensible option. I did not have an
exclusive arrangement and knew any exposure would help me achieve
the required end, a successful sale.
Having looked at a few candidates that I found on the web -
HouseWeb seemed easy to use and straightforward, it offered a
level of market penetration, and a degree of personal security.
The process of putting my advert on the site was enjoyable and
The property had been on with an agent for
two and a half years and with HouseWeb just over a year.
HouseWeb saved me a great amount of money,
it could be the cost
of a medium size family car, the deposit for a flat or the
rent on a three bedroom house for over a year-take your pick.
I did sell the house for more than it had
been valued by the agents - but to be fair after two and a half
years I had the property independently revalued, put the
price up on the web and found a buyer almost immediately who
settled for 95% of this new price.
The process of selling privately was not in the slightest
stressful and the legal process was straightforward and
progressed at a comfortable speed. I must stress I was not in a
chain and had moved into a rental while I looked around for a
new house. Also my buyers where charming and very sensible.
It is your home and more importantly it is
your money, you should receive as much of it yourself so I
would recommend trying HouseWeb first.
While it is straightforward doing it DIY,
it is not for everyone and some people will still use an agent,
but remember you are paying them thousands of pounds out of
your hard earned equity.
To anyone thinking of selling privately I
would recommend the following:
I was pleasantly surprised
at how responsive HouseWeb were when I did have a hiccup
or a problem, and found Ariane in Customer Services charming and
the truth in the details.
it the time it needs
time on the details and the pictures
you cannot take a good picture pay someone to do it.
the enquiries professionally and promptly
fairly and sensibly
