"We sold within 4 months for £11,500 more than the estate agent's valuation!"
Roger Traves from Bournemouth told us about his move following his retirement.

“When I retired I didn't need my work residence any more so I decided to move back to my family home in Bournemouth. 

I decided to sell privately because I had plenty of time on my hands and of course I could save some money doing it myself. I had no reservations other than finding out what were the best methods to advertise and getting a little bit of advice. 

After doing some investigation I found some good  reports for HouseWeb in the national newspapers and in Which? magazine. I visited the website and phoned their office to confirm some questions then I decided to register on the net. 

We sold within 4 months for £11,500 more than the estate agent’s valuation. From my experience Estate Agents want a quick turn over so they tend to under value some properties rather give a true market price. 

I could have sold it earlier as I initially put the house up for sale on an informal tender basis where sealed bids had to be submitted to my solicitor before a deadline. This was a failure and cost me 5 to 6 weeks. I then put the house back on the market with an asking price or nearest offer. I had far more enquiries and an offer within 3 weeks.  

Once I got my advert sorted I found the whole experience interesting and enjoyable. I had full control over the process and felt I was always up to date. The main benefit is not to have a third party involved. 

My recommendation would be to only use an estate agent if you are super rich. If you are not, then I would recommend that you spend a little of your own time to take control of your own assets and save more cash that you can earn in the same time. After advertising and other costs I probably saved in excess of £3,500. 

It’s important that you do your homework before you commit your house  to the market. It is essential to follow a clearly constructed path of events from beginning to end. HouseWeb  provides very useful information to achieve this on their website.”
