At NPT, we had a steady month here in Battersea and certainly nice to have some sunshine finally come to London. Family weddings and funerals were a feature for the team in June with Cormacs sister getting married in Ireland and Olivers Aunty passing away. We would like to extend our congratulations and commiserations to you both.

For thousands of people the start of spring means the beginning of the house-hunting season. It is also time to ponder a question many of us may ask when deciding to sell a property:

How do estate agents charge such a pretty penny for selling a house?

If that is your view, have you thought of trying to sell it yourself?

This year that should become easier, as the government is changing the rules on selling houses over the internet. Private sale websites that help you find a buyer for your property will be given new freedom to operate.

However is it really a good idea or could you end up losing time and money?

Law Change
When the law that defines an estate agent is changed later this year, these private websites will be relieved of certain obligations placed on estate agents, like having to visit the property concerned.

Advice
The danger for sellers is that they may pay several hundred pounds to a private sale website, but still fail to find a buyer. If they then resort to an estate agent, they will have spent more money, not less.

One alternative if you want a quick guaranteed sale is to sell to a quick property buying company such as NPT where there are no fees to pay.

By Selling to NPT can get rid of all the hassle and sell your house fast without any complications of buyers not proceeding or lost fees.

We had a great experience using National Property Trade and would have no hesitation recommending you to our friends and family
Cormac has an impeccable team within this industry and being an investor with National Property Trade for many years, I have just recently relied on them to sell a lingering property. Whatmore can I say, fantastic, sold wthin 12 days from initial offer to cash in the bank. EXCELLENT!
Very happy with the service we received. I dealt with Daniel and he gave me confidence that other companies didn't. I was very nervous at first but he explained every thoroughly and everything panned out as he said. Great work and I highly recommend National Property Trade
