“The savings I’ve made from not using an estate agent almost pay for my move to Canada!”
Bill Thompson from Buckinghamshire tells us how he cut out the estate agent and became friends with his buyer…….

”As soon as we made the decision to sell the house, I decided to do it myself. I had no reservations because I was the owner and could explain any queries that a prospective buyer may have. My wife, on the other hand, was a little doubtful at first because of the security factor, that is, allowing strangers into our home without any "vetting". I explained that estate agents don't ‘vet’ their clients either, so that's not actually an issue. And as it was us who decided who we permitted to view the house, as well as making the appointments to suit us, we were actually more confident about the people viewing.

Out of the eight people who viewed the house six of them put forward offers, and it was the first people to view who bought it at the asking price. We have dealt with them as friends, with complete trust and openness ever since. There was definitely no stress during the whole process as I was in control of everything and didn't have to worry about anything at all.

What it cost me to sell through HouseWeb would have paid for a nice dinner in London. And as I saved approximately £7000 by not using estate agents, my savings almost pay for our international move to Canada!   

I really believe that a house will sell itself if it is clean and properly presented. First impressions, as soon as people step in the front door, are paramount. I did not even have time or need to erect the For Sale Board; it just proves how easy it is. I have encouraged everyone I know to sell their house this way. 

I would most highly recommend everyone to sell their property this way. There are no special skills required, only honesty, a fair price and face to face first person dealings. The main requirement is a good solicitor to handle the legal aspects of the sale.”
