I want to downgrade sell up and buy cheaper but not sure how and how much it will cost?

I currently own 2 bedroom semi detached, very good condition lots of work done on it, front and back garden with conservatory to the back. I have recently lost my job and need to sell and make profit to buy outright and have no future mortgage. I owe approx 55,000 and I need approx 40,000 once sold in order to purchase something else.

  • The cheapest way to sell your house is to sell privately. You could set up your own website to market your home, put a sign up outside to attract potential buyers looking for houses in your area. Choose a conveyancer carefully, make sure you know all costs up front. If looking for a bargain priced home, look for repossessions and go to property auctions. You can cut costs when selling, you just need to do a little more work yourself.

  • Look to achieve in excess of £100,000, also check if you have a fees or penalties if you pay off your mortgage early. Selling privately is the cheapest option but not necessarily the fastest or get you the best price in the current testing market. Good luck in everything

  • If you use a High Street estate agent expect to pay around 1.5% plus vat to sell your home. However online estate agents like are cheaper and so will save you a fortune, particularly if you're downsizing
