I wanted to leave Milton Keynes but stay within travelling
distance of my work. This was the first time that I had sold
privately, but from the time I decided to sell, and fed up with
past experience of estate agents, I had no reservations. I had
nothing to lose by trying to sell privately first!
I chose HouseWeb because it seemed very good value for money,
and offered a wide selection of websites for advertising my
property. Putting the advert together was very easy and
straightforward. Everything was fully explained and the
site enables easy editing of the advert at any time.
I had an agent to value the house and actually sold for
£10k more than they suggested, plus I saved £3500 in fees. I sold within 2 days initially. The first buyers failed to
get a mortgage, and on re displaying the "For Sale
Board" sign, I sold again within one day!
I would urge anyone thinking of using an estate agent to
consider what you are getting for your money, and ask other
people if they felt the service they received, if any, qualified
the large amount of money charged. Try selling privately first.
The Internet is growing and more and more people turn to it
first to look for properties. It’s more convenient than
trudging around estate agents and a lot cheaper!
I felt completely safe with the viewings that I had, as
HouseWeb’s site offer a secure email service, and any other
enquiries, I could vet before they came to view.
Honestly, I can say I would not use an
Estate Agents again. Many thanks for your help."
