January 2007 I thought about selling my home privately because I
was not happy with service provided by estate agents for the
exorbitant fees charged. My reservations were that (a) it
is a unique character property and majority of property for sale
on websites is more ordinary and conventional (b) price is
higher than middle market prices therefore only appeals to a
smaller group of potential buyers (c) concerns about maintaining
privacy (these were overcome quickly by experience of actually
talking directly to potential buyers)
I decided to
use HouseWeb as it was the highest rated site for selling
privately. The process of putting my house on the site was
process was less stressful than using an estate agent, I was more in control, could interview potential
buyers and ensure they were serious, and respond promptly and
fully to enquiries.
It took me about five months to sell my house but I achieved a
saving of around £12K.
