HouseWeb Testimonials
“The whole process was much less stressful than using an estate agent!”
Chris and Gilly Simmonds from Oxfordshire  

“We decided to sell privately as a good friend in Oxford had sold through the internet. The only reservation we had was about the length of time it would take to sell, but we needn’t have worried, as it took no longer than using an agent.

We chose HouseWeb as a friend recommended them. It took us a while to sell from advertising to full completion but by using HouseWeb rather than an agent we saved between £5,000 and £7,000.

To value our home, we used estate agent websites, newspaper house adverts and our knowledge of the local market.

We actually sold for £10,000 less than the price we had advertised our house on HouseWeb but £20,000 more than what estate agents had been valuing similar houses around us, so we were very pleased.

We felt that the whole process was much less stressful than using an estate agent. Estate agents in general are so untrustworthy and unprofessional.

One recommendation would be to be a bit of a salesperson yourself and sell the features and benefits of your property which are most relevant to your buyer’s requirements. As in the TV programmes, ensure the house is ‘super clean’ and well decorated.

Finally thank you for your site!”
