I made the mistake of using Purplebricks to sell my flat last year. Suffice it to say, I still own the flat and am almost £1600 out of pocket. We had ten viewings in five months, including two open days with a total of just one person attending.
They take pictures, stick the property on Rightmove and pocket the cash.
We had one offer from someone who hadn't even seen the property and wanted to move in within four weeks; clearly not a person who understood property purchase. Our expert advised us to turn down the offer. A few months later, after a price reduction and still zero interest, the same prospective buyer made another, much lower offer, which our expert then suggested we take.
We took the property off the market and decided to let it (not through Purplebricks, obviously).
Once they have your cash, they have no incentive to sell. Steer clear.
