The SAHO guide to

Selling a house online

Around 90% of property viewing requests are made online, making it the best place to sell your home. But how is it done? The online property market can seem daunting and mysterious, especially if you’re a first-time seller.

We believe the process should be affordable, fast, and stress-free. That’s why we keep you informed every step of the way. We’ve put together this guide to show you in a bit more detail how selling with us works.

Getting a valuation

How much is your house worth? Finding out can mean checking local estate agents for similar listings, or searching internet property sites that require mountains of personal information.

At Sell A House Online we’ve designed a tool to save you time and guesswork. Answer a few questions about your property and get a personalised valuation that is fast, accurate, and free.

Setting your price

After receiving your online estimate, we’ll phone to discuss the valuation in more detail and answer any questions you have.

During the call, we’ll gather as many details about your property as we can. Using this information, we’ll recommend a sale price, but of course we’ll work with you to set one you’re happy with.

Preparation

Now is the time to get your place looking spick-and-span. Cleaning, decorating, gardening (and the rest) – it’s a lot of work. But a great first impression is what you’re going for, so make it count.

We’ll arrange a date we can visit your property to take photos and measurements for the floorplans, and if you’ve added one, install a For Sale sign.

The Listing

Once we have all the details of your property—including the floor plan and photos—we create and market your listing on our partner property sites (including Rightmove, Zoopla, and PrimeLocation).

We guarantee your property consistently high visibility throughout the web — far greater than that of high-street agents.

Viewings

We receive and qualify enquiries, then arrange with you a suitable time for viewings.

Conducting your own viewings can seem daunting. But nobody knows your home like you. Use your wealth of priceless local knowledge to get people excited about the property and the area. Be sure to read our guides on viewing preparation and building rapport with buyers.

After the viewings, we contact potential buyers for feedback. This lets us act on interest as soon as possible, but also improve any areas that didn’t meet expectations.

If the buyer makes an offer, we undertake a thorough financial qualification to ensure viability.

The Sale

Once an offer is made, we discuss it with you and what your options are - be it accept, reject, or negotiate. We conduct any further negotiations on your behalf to get you a price you’re happy with.

When you accept an offer, we draft a Memorandum of Sale, take both parties’ solicitors details and instruct your buyer to conduct a survey as part of our efforts to expedite your sale.

Sale-to-Completion usually last around two months. During this process we are in constant contact with the solicitors to make sure everything is on track, and give you regular updates.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully sold your house online!
