Selling your house can be a stressful enough experience without having to think about all the added costs involved in the process, but selling through an estate agent can be pricey. They have the shop upkeep to account for and they are also very involved in the whole process, getting your house up on the market, advertising it and also assisting with the final sale which all comes at a price. You will be required to pay a percentage of the final sale price, usually on the day of the final sale which can be up to 2.5% which is unnecessary and definitely isn’t what you need when you are moving house. However, all of this can be avoided by ditching the estate agents altogether and selling your property privately.
With the increasing popularity and development of the internet over the last decade or so, selling your house privately is more straightforward and convenient than ever with the majority of the process being able to be done from the comfort of your own home. The whole process is easy with being able to take your own pictures and important measurements, upload your pictures online and also write the description yourself. But who better to sell your own home than yourself? And once everything is approved, your house is advertised on several different property websites available for anyone to see.
The process becoming much easier and being able to be done yourself is just one of the advantages of selling your house privately online. One of the other big advantages which makes private selling stand out from using an estate agent is the lack of fees involved. Property websites are fairly straightforward and easy to upkeep, therefore costing little money to run keeping buyers and sellers fees lower than ever. With just a small fixed fee of a few hundred pounds, a huge amount of money can be saved which is definitely worth it in order to put it towards your new home.
