The most important job when selling your property is finding buyers. Recent research has shown that 90% of buyers search for their ideal home on the internet, so the key to selling your home is to ensure maximum coverage on the world wide web. There are many “private sellers websites” in existence that you can simply upload your own photographs and property details to. Many of these will charge less than £100 or in some instances nothing at all. The problem with these, however, is that they don’t offer a lot of web exposure. Unless a buyer visits the site that you are listed on then they will completely unaware that your property is available.
In simple terms to ensure that your property is being marketed as effectively as it should, it needs to be listed on the major portals. This is where all the buyers are! The main players are rightmove, primelocation, findaproperty, globrix and zoopla. Unfortunately all of these sites have banned private sales and private sellers sites. If you decide to take the private sales route you may well be under-marketing your property. So how can you get around this? The best solution is to use an online estate agent.
Turtlehomes.co.uk for example will sell your house for less than £600+VAT but will still offer many of the advantages of a high street estate agent. Not only will your home be listed on all of the major websites they will also arrange viewings and negotiate the best price for you.
