Can I Really Sell My House for Free?
You might think it’s not possible to sell your house for free, with no strings attached and no hidden costs. We are, sometimes rightfully, wary of services being advertised for ‘free’, where the likelihood is that there will be an issue in the small print, or the service will be substandard.
However, if you know where to look, it’s absolutely possible to sell your house for free, with a fully managed property selling service and no fees or hidden charges.

Selling Your House for Free is Simple With Sold
How to sell your house for free
Thanks to technology, we no longer have to go to high street estate agents who charge expensive fees and take a high commission on our property sale. There are now many options to sell your house online which are much cheaper than traditional estate agents.
Many online estate agents will still charge a flat fee though, which can be anywhere from £100 to £1,000. Others may be completely free, but they don’t offer a fully managed property service, leaving the buyer to deal with things like taking photos of the property and sorting out the legal matters.
For example, one of the more popular ‘free’ agencies does not deal with any of the legalities, leaving the buyer to source a legal professional and foot the bill. Sold.co.uk is one of the very few free online estate agents in the UK who can offer a fully managed property selling service where you don’t have to pay a penny – including in legal fees. You could sell your house for free online yourself, removing the need for an agency completely. However, the big property listing sites like Rightmove and Zoopla don’t allow private sellers, so you won’t be able to advertise to the majority of buyers. You can use sites like Facebook to advertise your property, but fewer people will see your property so you’re less likely to achieve the price you want. In addition to this, you’ll still have to organise and pay a legal professional to make the sale legally binding. Sold.co.uk have a network of pre-qualified buyers that we advertise your property to. If we don’t get the right offer from them on day one, we then advertise your property on all the major sites like Rightmove and Zoopla to get the most exposure possible – doing this reaches of 98% of all active buyers in the UK.
Why should I choose a free estate agents over traditional high street agents?
Traditional high street estate agents have their benefits. They may be able to squeeze more money from a buyer in person. However, they will charge a high commission rate on the sale of your home, or sometimes an extortionate one-off fee. This will eat into the money you receive from selling your home and any ‘extra’ money you receive from the sale will be spent on these fees. With Sold.co.uk we don’t charge you a penny. So, you will receive the exact cash price your house sold for.
Traditional estates are known to over-value your home as much as 7% to win your business. You’ll be encouraged to put your property on the market for more than this is worth and will then have to lower the price every few weeks until you reach a realistic price. This is why the average time it takes to sell a property with traditional estate agents is six months. At Sold.co.uk, we never over-value and we never-over promise. We will work with you to decide upon the best and most realistic price for your property. We will never go ahead with a listing until you are happy with the price.
Traditional estate agents can also often lock you into lengthy contracts, sometimes lasting months. This means that if you are unhappy with their service or want to try to sell with an alternative seller, you will be unable to escape the contract. Sold.co.uk don’t believe in lengthy contracts and we welcome customers to let us sell their homes only if it suits them.
Is it safe to sell my house online for free?
You can safely sell your home for free online as long as you do your due diligence. You should properly research a company before you commit to selling with them. Ask them questions about costs which may come up later in the selling process and check the small print in contracts carefully before signing. You can also use online review websites like Trustpilot to read experiences from customers who have used that business. Whilst every company may have a few negative reviews, you should expect 80% or 4 out of 5 for a decent organisation.
