This is the way forward in selling your house. Housesimple gave us a professional extensive service at a very low fee. We were very impressed with their communication, efficiency, promptness and valuable advice and negotiation skills. They also allowed us the freedom to market our property as we wished. We felt very confident showing the house ourselves but knowing we were backed up by experienced agents who handled the tricky bits for us. It is a perfect compromise and all far far cheaper than using a local agent. The fees charged by 'traditional' estate agent are utterly extortionate for the actual service they provide (especially when compared to the solicitor's fees for dealing with the property) and it is time for more people to stand agaisnt this in order for the system to change for the better. The main thing that sells your house is the advertising, not the physical presence of the agent. We liked this set up so much that now we are in Australia and looking to sell again we have once again found a similar online agent here. Had we stayed in the UK we would undoubtedly have used Housesimple again to sell; it's a no-brainer.
