Why sell your property through Sold, rather than a traditional estate agent?

  • Speed

    We’ll get you a quicker sale at a price you’re happy with. On average, our properties spend just 23 days on the market before being sold – compared to the average across the UK of 96 days. That’s 73 precious extra days you can spend moving on, rather than staying stuck.

  • Our Trusted Network

    We have a large national network of pre-qualified buyers, which means there’s less chance of a sale falling through due to unforeseen factors, such as the buyer being unable to secure a mortgage or the chain breaking.

  • No Fees

    There are absolutely no charges when you sell your property using our service – we even cover your legal costs. Which means the amount you agree to sell your property for, is exactly the amount you’ll receive upon completion.

  • Hassle Free

    Unlike some other alternative estate agencies, we take care of all the admin of selling – in the same way a traditional agency would. That means we’ll photograph your property, write the description for the listing, arrange viewings and negotiate offers on your behalf.

  • Flexibility

    We don’t believe in tying sellers into lengthy contracts. That’s why we always start with an initial 30-day commitment, and go from there. And in our experience, 30 days is more than you’ll need.

Cons

You could argue that your property might sell for more through a traditional estate agent, and that’s possible of course. However, given that research by Which? has shown that estate agents typically overvalue a property by as much as £74,000, and those properties that have been overvalued actually end up selling for 5% less than properties which are priced realistically to begin with, we’d say it’s more likely that you’d end up selling for less, after an agonising 3-6 months of your property sitting on the market.

Some kind words

"I was contacted by Sold when my sale to a private agent fell through. They were quick and efficient including accommodating my special requirements for viewing. There was regular contact during the selling and viewing process and when an offer came in the agreement was made within a short timescale. Once the sale was agreed, the ongoing process was stress free and easy. If needing to sell a property quickly I would recommend using Sold."
