The short answer to this question is NO. There is no legal requirement to have to use an estate agent, who's main job is to market your property.
At My Own Estate Agent, we will give you the tools to do that for yourself. If you are willing to learn some new skills, take your own property pictures and write your own description, we can have you up and running 'for sale by owner' in a matter of minutes, and for a fraction of the costs you would typically pay an estate agent.
Not at all. We have worked hard to make sure that it is as easy as possible for you. When you sign up it helps if you have some information to hand such as your recent utility bills (we believe that giving as much information to a buyer as possible helps you get the best sale quickly). We have our step by step sign up process and then, once your advert is published we have a host of tips, tricks and tools to help you sell your property. We even have advice and help for those all important viewings.
You still need to work with a solicitor when selling your own home, we just recommend that your solicitor is experienced in dealing directly with a homeowner. There is no difference in the legal process, but it's always helpful to have a solicitor that can speak in plain English. Ask your solicitor if they are able to help you, if they are ask for a fixed price and a point of contact so you know who to ask if you have a question. If your solicitor isn't able to help, we can recommend an experienced firm who are able to hold your hand through the entire process.
Once you have followed our simple step by step process to get the ball rolling it's a matter of getting the word out there and letting people know your home is for sale. But, we provide you with the tools to make that as easy as possible and include advice on where to advertise and how to let people know. We help you through the entire process, with advice on how to conduct successful showings and sell your home on your own, without paying a middleman.
