  • Where to advertise my house PRIVATELY ??

    Hi all.

    I want to sell my house but not through estate agents. Where are the best places to advertise my house online ?

    There are plenty to choose from online but we have used a local guy that does it for £100.00 to advertise on all the major property portals.

    If you don't have any joy with the online agencies then I can forward his number for you.

            The problem with advertising for free is generally the house will take longer to sell and you have so support when negotiating with a potential buyer... Unless you are skilled with Social networking/marketing...

            But googling 'Advertise a house for free' will give you plenty of options and I do like the Facebook idea if done correctly.

              Definitely Gumtree, there are lots of great properties on the site, plus totally free. You can choose to advertise to all of UK if you choose. But yes, as mentioned already, you may want to get someone to negotiate on your behalf.

              Good luck.

                There are plenty of classified sites, eg Gumtree like the guys above have said, but apparently there are actually a few online estate agents that are pretty cheap compared to the the usual methods. I think my sister listed her flat with a site based in Essex last year and ended up paying around 300 quid. I could find out if you're interested?

                  Hi, has anyone sold flat or house privately with a successful trustworthy website?

                    We used House Ladder for the last property but still had to pay the estate agent. We had signed a sole agent agreement but of course the agent was happy for us to post it on free sites to boost interest. I think it is safer to use an agent and then put your back behind it as well. Any enquiries then pass off to your agent to do all the hard work. We will do the same now with our 4 bed 4 ensuite B & B with Adjacent shop in the grounds, outbuildings/ workshops, parking for numerous cars, car port, patio and veg garden. Just like that ....

                            I own 20 buy to let properties and always use 2 web sites to advertise:

                            1. Visum - visum.co.uk
                            Platinum Package - £53.95 (including VAT)
                            You get all the sites the Gold service plus Zoopla as well. Zoopla is the new rising star of property sites and gets a lot of hits. It's well worth the small price of the upgrade to advertise on it.

                            Gold Package - £49 (including VAT)
                            In addition to the Rightmove advertising from the Silver service, the Gold service additionally advertises your rental property on Primelocation, Findproperty Globrix and any other Digital Property group sub sites.

                            2. Gumtree

                            It’s vital that you use good quality pictures and are realistic on price - give it 2/3 months and if you are struggling to gain an interest then I suggest you drop the price.

                            Also - I would not rule out a good local estate agent - Halifax are a good one. That way if you get someone off the internet you've saved on fees but if the agent gets someone first then you have saved time which may work out cheaper.

                            Please let me know if you need any more help or advice.
