“We sold both our houses
at once and saved £6225”|
from Lincoln told us how easy he found it to sell two properties
am widowed and have two children living with me. My new partner
also has two children, and we wanted to bring the two families
to live together in a larger house. We sold both of our
properties simultaneously through HouseWeb. I’m
a Company Director and Mortgage Consultant, so have daily
contact with estate agents on a professional basis, and thought
I would be able to handle selling the two properties as well as
they could, which proved to be the case.
chose HouseWeb because someone I know had seen one of their
For Sale board signs locally,
looked at the site and recommended them to me.
Doing the advert was quick and easy. There was plenty of guidance
online, and HouseWeb Customer Services proved very helpful by
e-mail and phone.
Tina sold in four months from start to finish for £117,500 and
I sold for £230,000. With fees in Lincoln averaging
1.75% of the sale price, after
advertising costs we saved a grand total of £6225 between us. I
would advise anyone thinking of using an agent to consider
the cost saving and what is involved. For
anyone with a degree of common sense and confidence then
HouseWeb will work.
are lots of things you can do to help your private sale go
as much furniture out of the house as possible, and
lighten the place up. Have all of the lights on when viewers
to a new build site and look around the showrooms - why do
their houses look nice? Because they have lots of
mirrors reflecting light, furniture that fits the room even
if the layout is impractical in real life (e.g. no
televisions in rooms!), doors removed to create larger
areas than are actually there and light carpets throughout.
I replaced all
of my carpets in a 4 bedroomed bungalow for about £1500
before going on the market
using a light coloured carpet
throughout - I am sure this helped the
hold of some agents brochures for homes like yours before
trying to write the description. Use similar phrases and
avoid personalising the description too much
- buyers need to know what is there for them, not
what you think of it.
am looking to sell an apartment in Lincoln shortly and will
certainly consider using HouseWeb again.”
