    This thought as tempted me, with my house lol I wonder how many people off here would go for it lol I feel a new post coming on lol

    What I would say is that Estate Agents maybe have people on their books who may want to buy your house and from watching 'Axe the Agent', people are encouraged to 'prepare their houses for sale - clean, paint, furnish and then readily drop thousands off their price at the drop of a hat!

    Therefore I would suggest that
    a) You might actually sell your house with an agent using their data base.
    b) You may get more money (enough to pay their fees).
    c) Watch the program and use the tips for selling with an agent.

    try an online agency for much reduced rates
    House simple is just one.
