When it comes to selling your home, budget isn’t always the first thing which comes to mind. It’s not something we do every day so we tend to pick an estate agent based on recommendations, visibility or perhaps after a bit of research on the internet.

But, surprisingly, the questions we ask estate agents don’t always focus on what their services cost. We want to know how long it’s likely to take to sell our house; we want to know how much we might be able to sell our property for. But we don’t always think in terms of the cheapest way to sell a house.

For some reason, we’ve somehow become conditioned to think that, because large sums of money are involved, it’s somehow gauche to think of doing it cheaply.

How Much Is A Lot?

High street estate agents, charging anything up to 1.5% in commission, are going to rake in £3,000 on a £200,000 property and, because that’s how we’ve always done things – at least until recently – we don’t tend to question the amount. After all, if we’re going to net a couple of hundred thousand pounds from a property transaction, £3k for the agent who brokers the deal doesn’t seem a lot.

But the thing is, £3,000 really IS a lot of money – and you don’t have to pay it any more. There are a host of options out there – and using an online estate agent is one of them.

What Are My Options?

At Esale, we have two packages. Either you pay us £595 up front to manage the sale of your home or you pay us £1195 on completion. It really is as simple as that. What’s more, if you’re not happy with our service within 30 days, we’ll even give you back any money you’ve paid in advance. No quibbling; no arguments.

And, when you compare the cost, what would that saving of £2,000 pay for? A new three-piece suite for your new home perhaps? A down payment on a fitted kitchen? New carpets? A decent holiday when the Big Move is over?

It’s up to you of course. If you’re not keen on the concept of selling property online then you’re probably going to be sticking with the High Street.

But, if you’re savvy and you’re on a budget, then we’d love to chat about the cheapest way to sell your house.  Just drop us a line or give us a call and we’ll take it from there.
