“Thanks again for such a professional and efficient service!”
Hoaran, from Gloucestershire
thought about selling privately when I felt that the agent was
not reaching enough buyers. I had slight reservations as I
thought that it could not be easy. I decided to use
HouseWeb having read a report on "selling house
privately" in Which magazine.
found the whole process of putting the flat on HouseWeb
relatively simple. I sold the property within 3 weeks of
advertising and saved £1,500 on estate agents fees. I managed
to sell the property for more than the valuation. Selling
privately gave me the extra slack to reduce the price slightly
for a quick sale.
whole process was much less stressful than using an estate
agent, as I felt that I was more in control. The estate agents,
though very nice, were not as thoughtful when showing people
around the property, for example not always turning lights off,
not alerting me as to whether the carpet could do with a hoover.
They even left a window open once. Maybe not in their remit but
one needs to show a property at its best as much as possible.
would definitely suggest
people to give selling privately through HouseWeb a go
giving an estate agent a whole heap of money.
The web really does reach a wider range of househunters.
only hints and tips for people are the usual ones: clean all the
windows, tidy up the garden, sweep up leaves, make the house
look loved and lived in. Even if the house is empty it can still
be staged with minimal effort and maximum effect; a mirror here,
a rug there, the odd lamp or chair. Something to take the
blandness out of an empty room. Let the buyer see what it could
look like, so they can envisage living there.
was astounded that people had not seen the property in the local
papers, so obviously they find it easier and quicker to look on
the web after work and in the comfort of their own home. The
site is very good, but if you are as stupid as me, there
extremely patient and efficient staff on hand to talk you
through any problems that may occur. For example, somehow I had
lost potential buyer telephone no. the staff found it and called
me back within 5 mins with the details.
The process of selling is made very simple and one is
even alerted when to renew the ad if required. I am a very
satisfied customer of HouseWeb and I am happy to sing their
praises and recommend their services to anyone.”
