Sarah Beeny to show the house sale revolution
Sarah Beeny is currently filming a 1 x 30 Pilot, Sarah Beeny’s Sell Your Home (w/t) that investigates the new phenomenon of people selling their own house via an online website, choosing not to use a traditional estate agent.
The show will follow two families as they take the “online plunge”. They’ll have to value their own property and show prospective buyers around their pad.
But how will the home owners’ predicted sale price and timescale compare with a high street local estate agent’s opinion? Will they tally or wildly vary? And will the potential savings of thousands of pounds of traditional estate agent fees be worth it?
The home owners’ inexperience could mean they underestimate their local property market. They may find viewings difficult and too time consuming and lose heart if a sale falls through as they’ll have to start much of the process over again.
Sarah will highlight the pros and cons of the traditional versus online to each family and reveal the potential savings that can be made. She’ll also explain how the new phenomenon works and will give her expert knowledge on aspects of their property that could hold back that all important sale.
Get it right and they could save thousands. Get it wrong and the experience could prove a very costly mistake.
Once sold, how will they have fared compared to the local agent’s prediction? Matched it? Beaten it? Fallen short?
Sarah will do the maths and reveal if their hard work and commitment has been financially worth it.
