If you could sell your house without paying an agent a fee....

...would you do it? Would you go it alone and take the risks on the chin or would you still want a qualified advisory service to help you through the process?

  • Yes, as I think the amount you have to pay is ridiculous.

  • Hello you can by all means sell your property without paying an agent fee. However have you got the advertising on Zoopla etc. The reason I ask is that in reality 94% of buyers see their next home online on the major websites and portals and as a private seller you do not have access to this so although it is possible, are you limiting your audience?

  • If you are selling a bulk standard flat, terraced house or semi detached with an asking price of less than say £250k house you can sell it yourself on Rightmove, Zoopla etc via an internet estate agency ( eg Urban Sales) for approx £300. Once the sale price goes over £250k it becomes harder to sell by yourself. For more expensive properties buyers feel more comfortable buying through an agent and may not take a vendor selling his own property seriously.
