This is a new service. We are offering it to some internet searchers for free in order to get some interest going.
As you can see we want to start a " club ". If there are no members there ain't much of a club !
Selling your home via an Estate Agent will cost you thousands of pounds in commission. (For example: Say you pay them 3% for selling an average priced house of £100,000. The agents fee would cost you £3,000).
So what do they do for their money? Not too much really. And increasingly
people are feeling they don't do enough to justify such huge fees and are
doing it themselves. (See
our table of Estate
Agents pro's and con's versus doing it yourself)
The Internet has changed everything
Pre internet it was possible to sell your own property. However hardly anyone did.
One of the major impacts of the internet is that people are realising they don't have to use middlemen/agents in the way they used to.
For example people are booking their own flights online. This saves them time, money and even the effort of dealing with the travel agent.
We will place your property advert on the major
property websites. As a result, millions of people will be exposed to
Anyone looking for your type of property in your area will see your ad.
No it's not. Honest ! We've made it very easy for you to place an ad through
us. We help you.
Our simple property advert description wizard will make your ad look highly professional.
The whole process has been designed carefully to be straightforward, quick and easy.
Well possibly. If you are happy to pay their rather large commission. And if the agent is any good. But sadly not many are. The experience of most people using agents is that it becomes quite stressful.
They do not keep you updated. You have to chase them to find out how things
are going. To you, your property sale is extremely important. For them it's
one of many they're dealing with.
It's difficult to set up even simple viewings with many agents. Then if you get an interested buyer you can't be sure your agent is responding to them properly.
Basically, you don't know if your messages are getting through to them without being garbled into Chinese whispers.
This is highly important. It is well known that in negotiations if the two parties are speaking directly it is much more likely to lead to a successful outcome. They can both hear exactly what the other person is saying - which can make a big difference.
As far as the actual art of negotiating
goes, we give you the simple tricks of the trade. These are exactly what
the agents themselves use. They're not rocket science. In fact they're really
quite simple. Anyone can use them.
That's fine. You can still use us.
Just make sure that your contract is not for Sole Selling rights. If so your agent can claim commission even if you sell the property. (Even if this is the case you might want to advertise yourself to ensure a quicker sale).
Hopefully your contract is for Sole Agency. This means they are your appointed estate agent - the only estate agent who can sell your property. You should be OK selling your property yourself without paying any commission. (Unless of course the agent introduced the buyer to you).
Multiple Agency: is where you get several agents to sell the property. The one who sells the property gets the commission. They will usually want a higher commission if they are in competition with other agents
Yes you can. As outlined above,
just check that you don't have a Sole Selling
contract with them.
If it's Sole agency or multiple agency it means they can't claim commission on any sale you get from this site. However even if you are under sole agency contract you may find they aren't pulling their weight.
If you want to sell your house or flat quickly you might not worry about
paying the rather low extra cost of advertising here yourself
In any event it would be a good idea to tell any agent you have that you're advertising yourself aswell. It should help them to get a move on.
These undoubtedly make a major difference to a successful sale. They were
the first method of selling properties and remain one of the best.
While they are not compulsory we would recommend you think seriously about putting one up. You can get a smart looking one from us for only £24.95.

Then add you photos. Or, like your property description, you can add them at any time later. We have a very user-friendly guide to uploading your photos. However if you're at all worried about how to do it, no problem. Simply send the photos to us to upload.
All that's left is for you to decide if you want to display your phone
