At SellMyHome.co.uk Towers we can talk about the benefits of selling online until the cows come home but we do understand that first hand testimonials really help to bring the concept to life. Over the past fortnight alone these two lovely ladies have sold their beloved family homes – one in Fulham, London and the other in Aberdare, Wales. Their stories really go to show that the concept not only works but can save you thousands of your hard earned pounds.
Vicki Thompson (pictured), a leading menswear stylist and her husband Leo bought their Fulham home 10 years ago – due to the arrival of their daughter Octavia they are keen to move to a property with more outside space and a utility room. With their home on Ackmar Road selling for £1.75mill, Sellmyhome.co.uk were able to save them a whopping £30,000 in agent fees. Vicki says:
“We had our family home on the market through a local agent who was going to charge us 1.8% fees on completion – they got us an offer below asking price and we then decided to give the online route a go after Christmas. We had three viewings during the first week with Sellmyhome.co.uk and our home went under offer at asking price in week two. Our savings mean that we can put more money into the renovation of our new home and have eased the financial burden of moving house. If we hadn’t sold through Sellmyhome.co.uk we wouldn’t have been able to create a brand new utility room in our new house – something which has always been important to me. Having experienced it all first-hand I would never use a high street agent again.”
Miles from London and this time in Wales, top Property Blogger, Andrea Morgan sold her three bedroom terraced house in Aberdare for £125,000 through Sellmyhome.co.uk – we were able to save her £1,751 in fees. Her story is a fascinating one and is definitely worth a read on her blog. Andrea is absolutely thrilled with the result and says:
“It is fantastic to have saved so much money on Estate Agent fees. Although we saved financially, I am even happier that we didn't have to 'save' on service, to me this is priceless. Sellmyhome.co.uk have been exceptional and so to have some extra pennies for our new home is a bonus. I love interior design, I already have my eye on some beautiful paints and wallpaper to transform our new home.”
