privately, it is easy and so much less stressful...and so
Peter McGee from London E12 told us how he saved about £10,000
decided to try selling privately, albeit for the first time,
when the stress of using estate agents, allied to their
exhorbitant costs, became too much. We had no reservations about
going it alone. We chose HouseWeb as our online partner due to
the amount of press coverage we had seen about them and it
turned out to be a very easy site to use.
took less than a year for us to sell, (advert placed May 2006)
which was quicker than the estate agents who previously had it
on the market! We had had the house valued by them and sold for
pretty much spot on their target valuation, saving ourselves £10000
- £12000, depending on their % charges. I was amazed by the
fact that there was no stress. None whatsoever.
My advice to anyone thinking of selling privately would be ‘Do
it! Sell privately...its easy and so much less stressful...and
rewarding.’ Now we have to sell our house in Cornwall and we
will be using HouseWeb again.”
