    Sell my house

    I am selling my house and want to do it privately, can anyone suggest websites to sell it on for FREE and any advice on doing this.

    Has anyone sold there house on a website?

    Advertise in the local paper (might not be free) but word of mouth is probably going to be the cheapest.
    Are you worried about costs? Is that why you say about selling it privately? You wont get the exposure an agent could give you. If they market it at the right price the amount you get from a potential purchaser would pay for the agents costs.

    if sold here on FS/FT it would prolly be HUKD's biggest amount, and most watched reality property sale.

    Yes just trying to save money by selling privately as we have a property we are interested in.

    I cant advertise it on here can i?

    have to ask a mod about that, i havent seen such a sale here but if allowed this will be the biggest. and the riskiest IMHO.

    [ offer removed - too slow ]

    Always go with an estate agent they are all no sale no fee and will get you a better price than one of those websiters, you can stil get a good agent for around 1%, and it will make a difference, (you get what you pay for), I work for Haart and they are honestly great, if not try someone like countrywide although they prob will ot do 1%

    1% +vat though.

    On ebay, property bids are not legally binding (unlike most other bids).

    Assume that the same would be true on here.

    Only because that offers are subject to contracts exchanging. If you bid on eBay you are saying that you are happy with the property as it stands because of the auction rules.
    I think that you could put in on this site to generate interest as its not an auction format in FS/FT.

    It is a nice house, could you not rent it out?

    first can i say you house looks great - trouble is the housing market is rubbish at the moment in my area this would be an ideal first time buyer property but most lenders are insisting on a 10% deposit on what ever they lend maybe you could offer some kind of sweetner to help? local paper is a good idea aswell

    I have seen a property for rent on your street this is a link:-

    rightmove.co.uk/vie…ria

    You could raffle your house, lots of people are resorting to that in this current market.

    Sell tickets at £25 each so you would need to sell 3,400 tickets, You could even offer a 5% total of tickets sold to a chosen charity, you can put terms and conditions in that if you don't sell the amount of tickets needed by a certain time that the prize will not be the house but instead the total cash amount earnt from the tickets sold so not that scary really.
