DIY Property Sale?

I have two 4-bed properties I want to sell, but I just for once have a bit of time to have a go at selling myself for a change. Sitting tenants in both with payments made direct so no arrears with one, and minimal arrears with another (less than £500)

I have used the bog-standard Estate Agent and National Residential (swift, but you pay for the quick turnaround) before now…but are there other options?

My own For Sale boards went up today (as both on main roads etc) and they are in areas high with investors as perfect for HMO’s (both were previously HMO’s, but we went back into family unit letting). One has great extension potential (loft space Bed 6 & 7), a garden that can be made into off-street private parking or space for a standalone one-bed flat or separate annexe.

Does anyone know of specific methods rather than the expected estate agent Rightmove/Zoopla route?

Are you going to do all the legal stuff yourself as well? I am a retired solicitor not a conveyancer and thought it was bus ticket stuff until asked if I knew what I was talking about, forms this, that and the others, protocols, etc., etc.?? Not the faintest clue! Provided it's a bog standard sale and no legal hitches lurking (all statutory obligations met??), there are factory conveyancers around and you won't waste expensive management time looking it up! Good luck!

nooooo way not the legal stuff - just the selling and viewing etc.

All I really need is the cheapest in road to getting onto Rightmove/Zoopla.
Have found an online company called Doorsteps.co.uk.
Anyone any other info?

I use Visum to advertise my rental properties just to get them on Rightmove, Zoopla etc. They also do selling and seem very competitive price wise. Good luck!

I suggest that you find Facebook groups for HMO landlords and other property investors (e.g. Rick Gannon or Progressive Property). Some of these may have a deals thread where you can advertise.

I found http://99home.co.uk/ to be the cheapest, however I understand they stopped pushing your ad to Rightmove, only Zoopla now. PRS5 coupon code will get you listed for under £80.

I know this sounds to good to be true but check out Strike Estate Agent. They will list your property on all major sites for free and come round and value and prepare a listing

They charge £0,00.

I know it sounds like a scam but i have looked at it and in my opinion its legit.
( they do charge for ancillary services but no heavy sells and not mandatory)
Be interested to hear what u think of it
