“We sold within a week! Offer accepted within 8
Paul Meadows told us how easy he found it to sell privately…..
“We needed to sell our property as my partner
and I wanted to buy a house together and set up a future home
for our family! It was the first time we had sold privately but
we had no reservations whatsoever as my parents did it many
As soon as I decided to put the house on the
market I knew that I could do it myself and discovered HouseWeb
by word of mouth, I liked the fact that the website was easy to
use and pleasing to look at. It was simple to navigate and the
‘help’ function and users guides were brilliant.
We got three valuations from estate agents and pitched our price
slightly below the highest valuation. We sold within a week!
Offer accepted within 8 days! We felt that we got exactly what
the property was worth. Plus, whatever price we agreed was all
ours, no agent fees! We saved at least £2,500.
If anybody asked me if they
should use an agent I would say DON’T! It really is money for
old rope! Who knows your house best? And in any case they want
to get a sale, and would rather some commission rather than
none! All they do is add to the stress and confusion and charge
My advice to anyone thinking of
selling privately would be –
customer service from HouseWeb is fantastic! I’ve actually
enjoyed selling my own property; it was nice not having an
interfering agent involved. Both the purchaser and myself knew
exactly what went on at all times. It really is a simple
Internet sites and the local papers so that you get a feel
for the market and price for similar properties.
3 quotes from the agents (it’s free), as this will help
you market the property at the right price.
- Don’t give up, this really works. All you need to do is
invest less than £200 and about a day’s work to put an ad
together; and with the help from HouseWeb this couldn’t be
