The old way of selling property is not fair

At SOLD.CO.UK we believe that traditional high street and online estate agency models have their place, but there are downsides to both.

They overvalue your home to get you excited and more likely to choose them to sell it. All this does is unfairly raise your hopes, and result in you wasting time having to lower your asking price every few weeks in order to sell it. On average, it takes a regular estate agent 190 days to sell your home. That’s 6 months.

Everyone knows this, and yet everyone still plays the same game.

And buyers know this too – holding out, and reducing offers later in the process when they know sellers are losing patience and time.

That’s the OLD way. We do things the SOLD way

They did exactly what they said they would…

They did exactly what they said they would and got a buyer for my Mum’s property within a week. We received regular updates and communication was good. Mary, in particular, was a star and kept us sane throughout the process.

Thank you!

How do I know if SOLD.CO.UK is right for me?

If you want to get the most amount of money possible for your home, then a traditional estate agent is probably better for you. But you should go into it aware that you are putting your property on the market for more than it’s worth, hoping the perfect buyer will come along.

The reality is that you will wait 6 months, reduce the price, and have a 50/50 chance of it all falling through. And you’ll still pay a fee at the end.

With SOLD.CO.UK, we can sell your home in as few as 25 days – fully managed end-to-end, all for free.

The benefits of selling online with SOLD.CO.UK

Why sell your property with us, rather than a high street or online estate agent?

Most estate agents do the same things – they take photos, make floorplans and list your property on sites like Rightmove. We do that as well, but we do a whole lot more besides. It all starts by giving you an honest valuation of your property and helping you achieve a realistic price from the outset.

We get it SOLD – fast!

Estate agents on average take 190 days to sell a property. We can do it in 25 days

We have cash buyers at the ready

We advertise your property in all the usual places like Rightmove, but we also have 20,000 pre-qualified buyers ready to go. More trusted buyers means less chance of a sale falling through

We are completely FREE

Estate agents either charge you up front, or a commission when you sell. With us, there are no fees at all – we even cover your legal costs. Instead, we take our fee from the buyer – by ensuring THEIR commitment when an offer is accepted, there is less chance of the sale falling through

We manage the sale for you

Unlike other agents, we take care of everything – not just arranging photos and viewings, but managing every aspect of the sales progression and conveyancing, ensuring all parties involved are driving toward a quick sale

No risk, short-term contracts

We are so confident we can achieve your sale quickly that we only ask for a 30-day agreement. Most agents make you sign up for months on end
