Are there different ways to sell property online?

In the past you would automatically reach out to your local estate agent if you wanted to sell your home. The traditional approach was the norm and online estate agents didn’t exist. Fast forward a few years and the emergence of new technologies and a shift in what homeowners want during the selling process means there are now a multitude of different ways to sell your house online.

Today you can sell your home on your own terms, selecting a method which suits your budget, timeframe and financial goals. From private sales and property auctions to online estate agents and cash house buying companies, you can avoid the traditional route and save yourself time and money.

Can online estate agencies sell my house for me?

Online estate agents offer a selling solution many homeowners favour. The personal approach of a traditional estate agent is merged with different perks – such as zero commission or a quick sale – to create a hybrid route to sale.

Typically, online estate agents charge a flat fee for their services. Others might be free, but they put much of the work on the seller, such as taking photos of the property or handling the advertising. If you want a service that is fully managed and completely free, SOLD.CO.UK can offer a fast, free and fair service tailored specifically to your needs.

Can I sell my house online myself?

Technically you could. But there are a lot of reasons why you shouldn’t.

Firstly, there is a legal requirement to have all paperwork relating to the sale to be 100% accurate to the best of your knowledge. At SOLD.CO.UK all of our documents are approved by the Law Society and are completely compliant to the process of selling your home.

Secondly, you won’t have a database of buyers to immediately advertise your home to from day one. At SOLD.CO.UK we have over 20,000 pre-approved cash buyers ready to buy your home.

Thirdly, you may not know how to create the best descriptions, photos, and accurate floorplans for your property. As part of our fully managed service, which is the standard we operate by, our expert team will handle all of this for you.

Lastly, you may not know how to use the listing sites like Rightmove and Zoopla, so most buyers would not be able to find your property, and you would be unlikely to achieve the price you want. At SOLD.CO.UK we market your property to over 98% of active buyers.

Amazingly Quick!

The last time I sold a house was 30 years ago, so I was very out of touch! My daughter looked into online estate agents for me and came back suggesting SOLD as a service that would work well. No fees at all seemed too good to be true, but I decided to give it a go as the contract was only 30 days. My house had three offers on it within 14 days – amazingly quick! If anyone is out there thinking about going with SOLD, I could not recommend a service more! Huge thanks!

You won’t regret using this service

I experienced a great service with this company. I wanted a quick sale but at a good price and they offer this. I have heard horror stories of people sitting on the market for six to eight months with only a few viewings and I didn’t want that. With Sold my property was under offer within 20 days and I have now completed six weeks later. Cannot thank the team enough for their efficiency – you won’t regret using this service!

 

The best experience I’ve had with an estate agent

I bought a property in London with Sold and had a good experience – probably the best I’ve had with an estate agent. The agent I was working was available, proactive, and informed about what was going on with the process. She kept the purchase going, and was able to negotiate with me and the sellers to navigate around issues when they came up. I’d definitely use them again.
