How to sell your home privately

When selling your own home, privately, you’re in charge, this delivers clear cost savings and gives you control over the whole process.  Your home, your sale.

With control comes responsibility. With your home, your sale; the onus is on you – to achieve the sale. So to start with, its best to be fair; highlight the many great aspects of your home but be honest and accurate, otherwise you’ll waste your time with viewings that come to nothing.

If your sale doesn’t seem to be going to well, remember you’re in control. You need to make it a success; what your objectives are and what is important to you.

If speed is more important to you than maximising the price, you can perhaps do something with the commission you are saving – lower the asking price for your house. A lower price may result in a quicker sale. What balance is right for you?

However remember for motivated private sellers, lowering the price might not even be necessary to achieve a quick sale. After all, you know the house better than any estate agent and you have greater commitment and motivation. You just need to plan your sales process in easy steps:

Helping Shelter

As roofoveryourhead.com allows you to buy and sell the roof over your head for free, what better charity to support than @shelter. Hopefully we can help those who unfortunately struggle to keep one over theirs.

Hopefully, a little bit different

Not only do we want to turn the property market on its head, we also hope to try and conduct our business a little differently – be a good business doing good. As we’re helping people sell their home for free we hope that they will be willing to make a charitable donation.

We earn a bit less so that hopefully they can earn a bit more.

Testing times

Testing. Hmm. A double edge sword. With every little tweak, each release, the website gets better but the back and forth of testing and retesting takes its toll. Like a run where the finished line keeps moving.

Still we keep slogging on and thankfully with great support from @broadbiz and @SianHagger and we will soon have a fantastic website that will offer something a little new.

Not an estate agent, online or otherwise. #sellyourhomeforfree

The long slog

Many years ago, while selling our own home, my wife and I wondered why people couldn’t sell their home privately? It appeared that technology had empowered us in every area of life and we could sell everything online but not our own homes.

So, with a low cost DIY concept in mind, after lots of saving, late nights after work and a very steep tech learning curve, roofoveryourhead.com is about to go live.

Soon you will be able to independently buy and sell your own home. What’s more, it’ll be free. People will be able to take control of their sale or purchase, deal directly with each other and save themselves a good chunk of money.

It’s been exciting, stressful and rather tiring but we’re very pleased with the finished site. We hope other people like it and benefit from it.

At times we have felt little crazy to try and offer an alternative to the normal high street or online estate agents but friends and family have been very positive and supportive so a big thanks to them. Anyway with the launch impending, we now get to see if we were bonkers or not.
