 HouseWeb Testimonials

I decided to try selling privately after advertising the property with a local Estate Agent for over a year without success !  
Philip Condie, Kent

"I found selling privately a little more stressful at first as we weren't getting the viewings we expected. However, we came to realise that whilst we had fewer viewings compared to when we tried to sell through an agent, the viewers were more informed and more interested than the crowds of people the agent sent. Once we had an offer, it was very straightforward - particularly as we remained in direct contact with our buyers so could answer any queries promptly.

I had decided to try selling privately after advertising the property with a local Estate Agent for over a year without success. We did have reservations - like many people, we thought we needed to use an Estate Agent and thought that buyers would think we were "dodgy" (ie something to hide) if we didn't use an agent. We had read about HouseWeb and as we had no experience of selling privately, we went with it.

We selected the Deluxe package with a For Sale Board. We only had one enquiry directly from the board. But for those who contacted us through the net, having the board made our sale look more professional and authentic when they came to view. The board also proved to be an excellent toboggan when it snowed last February!

By using HouseWeb rather than an estate agent, we managed to save approximately £5,500 as well as managing to sell for £20K above the estate agent valuation.

My recommendation to anyone thinking of selling privately would be to be patient, be ready to deal face-to-face with your buyer and be prepared to negotiate - and when the sale goes through, enjoy the satisfaction of selling it yourself and saving thousands of pounds on agent fees! I certainly won’t use an agent in the future.

Thank you".
