Selling a house privately - Private house sales
An Estate Agent will charge you a percentage of the sale value of your house in return for finding a successful buyer for you house. With fees ranging from 1 - 4 % this can mean a bill of several thousand pounds. So can you save yourself money and sell your house your self. You can but be prepared to put in a lot of hard work, and over one-in-twenty properties are now sold without an agent?
With a large proportion of people now using the internet as their primary tool when looking for a house to purchase, if you can get your house seen prominently when they are searching then you have a good chance of finding a buyer and your house selling costs will be considerably lower, with online private sales packages starting from as little as £50 plus VAT.
