  • Where to sell house plus building plot?

    Hi, I am the executor of a an estate and I have a house plus land with planning permission to sell in the west midlands.

    The house is in need of a bit of tlc but is quite a reasonable size and there is a plot of land with full planning permission for a 3 bed detached house.

    If it was my own property I may have been tempted to complete the required works ro enable the plot and the house to be sold separately but as it is I need to sell the whole lot in one go. I have it registered with an estate agent who told me it would make an excellent investment for a developer. However I am under the impression that developers come in two types, those that want to build from scratch and those that want to renovate and sell on/rent out. I think that the two types would each be put off be either having another property or by having a peice of land. Regardless there has been little interest so far, is an estate agent the best bet or is there a more specialist website or company that I should be using?

    Simply put, auction it.

      Thanks for the reply, being a bit new to all this, how do you go about that? also can you set a reserve price, as I say I'm the executor of the estate and the beneficiaries have a number of expectations?

        Put it on Rightmove through an online estate agent - you can do this for a few hundred pounds.

        Rightmove receive over 6 million Google searches a month - its estimated that 90% of buyers find their house on Rightmove - its a must for estate agents.

        Why pay 1.5% plus VAT - just because the agent has a high street office? On a £300k deal you save over £4k going with an online agent.

        There are a few of us agencies out there
