is good value for money - we spent £150 and saved over £3,500
in Estate Agents fees"
Bateup from Wiltshire told us about selling his home:
had a baby and needed a larger home and when I thought about how
little estate agents did for their money and how little they
knew about selling…or houses…or people we decided to sell
decided to use HouseWeb as I had used the site to look for
property to buy and I saw several properties of the type I was
selling. I felt it was good value for money.
was, however, concerned that I could waste £150, but this
seemed a small risk to take and as it turned out it was as we
managed to save £3,750 by not using an agent, less the £150
for the HouseWeb advert.
the advert on the site was very straightforward indeed –
although I am quite computer literate, you didn’t need to be.
My tip would be to include lots of pictures, which worked for
us. I’d even advocate spending a bit of money with a
professional photographer, to make the best of the advert.
didn’t find it any more stressful than using an agent – we
did have more control over the viewing schedule and more chance
of getting feedback from the viewers. You can always use an
estate agent as well if you like – just make sure there is a
clause in the contract that they can’t claim payment for
property sold privately. They may complain, but they aren’t
going to turn you away.
