SellersNET has brought together all the best private-seller websites and online estate agents in one place. Scroll down this page and  you will see all your options for selling your property online.

 

Of course everyone knows that you can save a lot of money selling your home privately.  More and more sellers are now turning to DIY Internet marketing and cutting out expensive High Street estate agents, because the vast majority of property buyers today start their search online. 

 

If you don't want to put all your eggs in one basket, you can normally appoint a traditional estate agent whilst also having a go at selling privately or with an online agent, to boost you chances of success. 

 

But it's essential to select the best websites to promote your property to as many potential purchasers as possible.

 

        

     


            There are 3 main options for selling your house online:-

 How to save money by selling it yourself    -    or by using an online agent

 

 Why Use

Online Estate Agents?

Selling a home yourself without an expensive High Street estate agent, will take some work on your part.  But the  rewards can be immense!

 

Save money!

Save thousands of pounds by not paying the normal commission of  between 1 and 3% + VAT. For example, if your home sold for £250,000, you could easily save  £ 5750 in commission fees.

It's easy

Despite what High Street estate agents might suggest, selling a house is not rocket science. But it's  essential to buy a good quality manual to guide you.

 

Sell Your Home Fast

Because you're not paying sales commission, you can afford to price your home more aggressively. The lower the price, the more likely it will sell fast. You'll still walk away with thousands in savings, and you'll be doing it faster.

 

There are plenty of private-seller websites an online agents to choose from - all listed below. However, most don’t provide national coverage, and focus instead on specific regions or cities. So when picking suitable websites, imagine that you're a buyer searching for a property in your postcode area.

Start by drafting an appealing description of your house and upload it together with some good quality photos on one or two internet property listings or online advertising sites - some of which are free. Then, you might want to investigate  online estate agents covering your area.

Online estate agents provide a much more comprehensive service than listings sites.

As well as promoting your property with a description and photos, online agents will also normally provide a For Sale board, and should promote your property on some of the powerful 'trade-only' portals - in the same way as conventional High Street firms, but for a much lower fee.

Online estate agents are usually members of trade organisations like the NAEA and some even visit the properties they take on. Their descriptions must adhere to the Property Misdescriptions Act – which is why they can advertise on Rightmove etc.

Before appointing an online estate agent, check that you aren't already committed to a 'sole agency contract' with a High Street Agent. If you are, there's a potential trap since your existing agent would be the only estate agent entitled to sell your property - see info below.

Online estate agents offer more than just listing your property.
 
As the name suggests, they offer an estate agency service, in most cases without the expense of a local office providing accompanied viewings (which you may prefer to do yourself).
 
Fees are considerably lower than High Street agents, but you'd normally expect a Sale board and crucially. your property to be publicised on some of the very powerful  'trade-only' portals (e.g. Findaproperty, Rightmove, Primelocation etc).  
 
Of course this costs money, so they need to charge higher fees than simple listings services.
