    Default Selling a house without an estate agent

    I'm going to be selling my house but refuse to give 1.5% of the value plus VAT to the estate agent when they do nothing for the money!

    Has anyone sold a house privately? I know there are a few sites on the net that for £300 will advertise it on Rightmove (£2700 cheaper than estate agent!)

    Yup the last time out we sold privately, never used an estate agent and saved a packet. Everything was done through the lawyers and its was hassle free

    Pop an advert in your local paper? We do private adds for selling cars, why not do one for your house, especially on the nights that the estate agents advertise.

    Never sold a house yet, but this one we bought without an agent and it was hassle free for the seller (a friend of ours)

    I currently have a house for sale but did a deal with an agent I know for £75 for him to market on rightmove only as I am in no rush to sell, I'd be gutted @ 1½ %.

    Well the house we are buying is through an agent but we are dealing with the vendor directly and its a lot easier. Its costing him 4.5k to sell it through an estate agent!

    I rang round estate agents and said tell me how much to sell, cheapest gets the business. Some actually wont say, but a newly established company did it for £400 (i think - 'twas a long time ago) including some advertising as "Property of the month" sold fairly quick - dont believe in throwing money away especially to yuppie estate agents.
