  • Do you mean a private sale. the answer is yes. There are amny websites that can help you with a private sale. In my personal experience in our area we have had people have their house up for private sale and have switched to a local agent in the end. It can take longer to sell this way. However, it is always worth a try. If you are only considering a move abroad it may be worth putting soem time into this. However, if you are ready to move abroad, I would advise using an agent. It takes the hassle away and puts you on the big portals like Zoopla in order for you to get maximum exposure for your house. Resulting in increased viewings, and increased intrest which should in turn give you the best chance of succeeding in your sale. Your personal circumstances will inevitably lead you to a decision, and if you do consider an agent, i recommend you do your homework, as there are a range of priceways and equally a range of services, and level of services differ from agent to agent. I hope this was useful to you. Good luck

  • Hi, Anyone is able to sell them home whether it is through yourself in a private sale or through an estate agent. However we would always advise people to use an estate agent when deciding to sell. There are a variety of different reasons for this such as security issues around allowing strangers into your home, the exposure an agent could get your property etc. But perhaps the most compelling reason of all to use an estate agent is a simple one. Most buyers end up buying a property that is often quite different to the one about which they first enquired. This is because an agent will identify a buyer's wants and needs and, in working with them, may well offer the buyer a property that would not otherwise have been on the buyer's radar initially. In other words, it is the volume of properties on an agent's books that first attracts buyers. The skilful agent then helps the buyer to buy the right property - hopefully yours - and then makes sure the sale sticks! We recently blogged about selling privately and why you should always think of using an estate agent which may raise issues you haven't thought about as of yet so please feel free to take a look online at

  • Yes but if you have a mortgage on the property you might have problems.
