I was quoted approx £4,300 to sell my house with an estate agent in the High Street, I sold and completed for approx £600. This is the greatest reason to use House network. I was kept up to date with e-mails and phone calls from the most responsive courteous staff. I have recommended the team to my friends, relatives and people that came to view my house. From an initial enquiry to exchange of contracts I was kept in the loop and advised at every stage. Highly recommended.

We did our research and House Network had some good reviews (and answered the phone promptly in the evening when we first rang them.) They took great photographs with a wide angle lens and we logged onto a control panel to 'tweak' the write up, choose photo's etc. Within hours after clicking "go live" our house details were on all the relevant search engines and we received quality enquires. Our dedicated agent, advised us on price negotiation.... 9 days later we received virtually the asking price !! 3 months later we completed! By far the most efficient and easiest house sale we ever had. We will never use a High Street Estate again based on service alone but combined with £495 fee versus almost £3000 for a High Street Agent - a total no brainer, welcome to the 21st century !

Excellent service and very good value for money.
Mr Stephen Buckley saved £5925 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We first put our house on with House Network in 2008. The market was not good but House Network remained professional and helpful, arranging viewings consistently quickly and efficiently. After a while we decided to put our house on with an estate agent to see if it made a difference - and this turned out to be a complete waste of time. Once we had been on the market with the estate agent for about 6 months, we realised that the service we had been getting from House Network was clearly in a different league. The estate agents (who were a reputable and long established company) managed to lose us viewings, arranged viewings without our permission and had viewings going to the wrong property. The contact was dreadful and support non-existent. We went back on with House Network and this time sold our house within 6 months. Our conveyancing took about 5 months, and throughout this time we were supported by our House Network manager, Dean Fisher, who never wavered in his assistance in communicating with the buyer, the buyer's solicitors and our solicitors. I cannot recommend House Network enough. They saved us considerable amounts of money but more importantly we sold our house through them and the support we were given during the process was outstanding. We remain very grateful to them.
Mr Jonathan Fagan saved £6075 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very happy with the sale of my house, will tell all my friends and family about House Network.
Mr Nigel Dodd saved £1395 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Fantastic service from start to finish, I saved over £5000 against traditional agent fees and got a far better service. Cannot recommend www.housenetwork.co.uk highly enough. Thanks!
Mr Simon Bass saved £4605 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very impressed by the service given by house network. We would be very happy to use them again and recommend them to our friends.
Mr Surash saved £3045 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I chose House Network for the marketing of my property because of the good feedback I saw on property forums. I have not been disappointed. They provided me with an excellent service. On the first week of marketing I had many viewings and 2 offers. The house sold straight away. I will use them again in future and I thoroughly recommend them specially if people want to save lots of money.
Maria Lopez Rodriguez saved £3690 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is the second house I have sold through House Network and I would not use any other Estate Agent. Why pay inflated prices to Estate Agents when you can get a much better service from House Network for a fraction of the price. I will be recommending House Network to all my family and friends.
Mrs N Lynch saved £2310 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great service, very professionally handled. Saved me thousands of pounds compared to a high street estate agent, and property attained the full asking price. Would I use House Network again? Definitely.
Mr Ian and Linda Owens saved £5100 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I used the house network having been recommended by a client who works for builder and they use them, all i can say that they are very efficient from start to finish, if a prospective buyer requests a viewing then they ring you and keep you on the line so it is easily booked and confirmed. You are given a dedicated manager for your property and Kayleigh dealt with my sale professionally and efficently at all times even when dealing with a separated party. Many thanks for all your support with the sale, Regards Paula Barry
Paul Barry & Paula Barry saved £3375 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Our neighbours had recently used Housenetwork and recommended them to us. Initially I was reluctant as I had only previous experience of traditional estate agents . I was a little concerned that we could be paying money upfront and what the incentive would be for HN to provide an efficient service if they had already received payment. My husband saw the savings we would make (approx £3,500!) and encouraged me to think positive and sign up for it. We were both very impressed with the quality and quantity of the photos taken and the way in which we could access our online account and also the Live Chat service when we had a few queries that we needed quick answers to. The houses get advertised on Rightmove and Find a Property which are the key sites people view when they're looking to buy. We had about 7 viewers before an offer was made. Throughout the whole process from the offer stage up until Exchange and Completion , we were kept informed via email and phone. I have already recommended HN to friends and colleagues, as there are significant savings to be made and I really don't see what else a local estate agent would have provided for an additional £3,500.
Miss Mandy Clements saved £3225 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The whole experience of selling our property through House Network was great. From the minute we signed up with them, things moved very fast in getting someone round to do the measurements and getting the property to go live on various websites. A large amount of information and pictures are put up on the site (which is something I appreciated when looking at other poroperties - it's very frustrating if there are only 1 or 2 pictures up - the more pictures & information, the more likely you are to get viewings). The Team are very friendly and helpful (and very patient at the times that you have to keep rescheduling viewings!). The only difference between House Network and a High Street Estate Agent is that you have to do the viewings of your property yourself, but I much preferred this anyway, as you are able to sell the property, answer questions, and have knowledge about the property that an Estate Agent wouldn't know. I would definitely use House Network again, and have already recommended them to friends and family. The whole process is smooth and easy, and great value for money compared to High Street Estate Agents.
Michelle Levi on behalf of Mr Sassoon Levi saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A very professional approach from start to finish.Very useful and relevant advice which helped to be competitive and sell within 3 weeks.And of course extremely good value
Mr James Patrick saved £2970 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network offers a truly excellent service. They are always courteous on the phone and I always received answers to my questions promptly whether through email or phone. I was initially worried that the service wouldn't be as good as a traditional estate agent but I can honestly say that it was better. Plus I saved £2700. I would not hesitate to recommend House Network to anybody considering selling their house.
Kelly Gilman saved £2325 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
For any straightforward sale where the seller is willing to host viewings, HouseNetwork provides a very cost-effective estate agent solution - especially with respect to enabling access to RightMove and the other nationwide property websites. We advertised an open day via HouseNetwork / RightMove which attracted nine viewers, one of whom subsequently bought the house. The whole process was relatively painless with excellent communications from our allocated agent well beyond normal office hours. HouseNetwork will be our first call when we next look to sell a house.
Mr Kim Balshaw saved £3240 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Hi Kayleigh I just wanted to thank you and the team at House Network for your pleasantness and professionalism throughout the whole process of selling my property. At all times I have been kept up to date and have always been extremely satisfied with your customer service and polite professional telephone manner. I also know that the purchasers are impressed with your service to them as they commented to me in person about your efficiency and regular emails etc. This is the 3rd property I have sold with yourselves and I know I will be back! Many thanks again Gary
Mr Gary Micklethwaite saved £2280 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I am extremely happy with the service that I received from Housenetwork.co.uk in my recent house sale, especially given the superb value for money that this service represents over a traditional estate agent. A couple of years ago I had the same house on the market with a local estate agent who was extremely lacklustre in their approach to selling and the sales brochure that they produced was awful - and for this service, they wanted 1.5% fees! Compare this with Housenetwork whose fixed fee of £495 I took - a responsive agent who could be contacted quickly or would reply quickly if I left a message, the best photos and sales brochure I have ever seen from an agent and a great website that allowed me complete control and visibility of the entire process. Couple this with the fact that I had a 'difficult' buyer and Housenetwork really earned their money!
Mr Daniel Spilsbury saved £1950 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network provided an excellent service and very good value on the sale of our house. We were unsure at first whether to use an online estate agent, but after seeing comments from others and the good quality pics etc. they had on Rightmove, we decided to give it a try. Very smooth process from start to finish. Excellent pics and floorplan and these were put onto Rightmove the next day. We could change the text and select which pics to show etc. which was great. We had been worried that we would not be able to attract potential viewers, but we had a number of viewings within the first few days and it was sold within a week. High Street estate agents could not have done anything differently and are actually providing a much lower quality of service since they do not give high quality pics, floor plans, video tours etc. Highly recommended!
Aziz Durrani & Shamma Durrani saved £3630 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very efficient and professional. Have recommended to friends. If i had another property to sell, I would go back to them without hesitation. Many thanks
Nadege Fayard saved £1950 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We are very pleased with the service we received from Housenetwork. Not only were they professional and supportive throughout, we saved about £7k. The plus points included - the ticketing system, which provides a good way of tracking changes to the details, - the calibre of the HN staff, particularly Danielle, who were always thoroughly professional and helpful, - having control over the house details (as we think we know our house better than anyone else does) but with HN keeping us on the right track The only disadvantage is that the Rightmove %s quoted on the dashboard are sometimes not accurate. But once we noticed this it was simple to work out the %s ourselves. We would definitely recommend Housenetwork.
Mrs christine jardine saved £6180 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The House Network team provided me with a first-class and professional service throughout the sale of my home. My account manager was courteous and patient, she managed all contact with potential buyers promptly, and offered sensible and considered guidance when requested to do so. I highly recommend using House Network as an efficient and highly cost effective means of selling a home.
Mr Robert John Collier saved £2535 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network provides a highly efficient, cost-effective method of marketing a property. Although it took a while to sell our property, I think this was a reflection of the current market; I doubt that it would have been any different had we chosen a local estate agent. We were especially impressed with the way that viewers were prompted to provide feedback - something that local agents often overlook. All in all, an impressive service that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Mr & Mrs K Laslett saved £4875 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Brilliant way to sell a house. Highly recommended. Danielle, my account manager, was very professional and helpful. Would not hesitate to use and recommend in the future.
Mrs Christine Jarman saved £3900 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I am really glad that I chose House Network to sell my home. They were far cheaper than the 'normal' estate agents and in my opinion provided a much better service. There were a whole host of photos of my home on both Rightmove and House Network's own website and the virtual tours were great. I liked having the web portal to see hit stats and viewing requests etc available 24/7 online. I would definitely recommend House Network to anyone selling their house.
Mrs Karen Davies saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An excellent service at an extremely low price compared to high street estate agents. The property and room photos were plentiful and of high quality. The facility that enables the seller to modify the descriptive text is brilliant and ensures fast, easy correction of any errors. Anybody with any doubts about using an internet estate agent should realise that thousands of £'s can be saved without compromising any aspect of the service provided. I would argue that it was a better experience than previously had with a well known high street estate agent at much less cost. Well done house network !
Mr MICHAEL ROBERT STILES saved £3315 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very pleased with Housenetwork service, very organised and great quality of photos
Mr Christopher Roberts saved £1725 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network were fantastic from start to finish. The whole process was simple, effective and they get you on the right move searches. The dedicated member of staff was only a phone call or email away. Excellent value for money.
Tom Mitchell saved £1815 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An excellent online estate agents. I will certainly recommend HN to anyone wanting to sell their house with all the help they need without paying thousands of pounds.
Mrs JUDITH PIPER saved £6420 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
i found housenetwork to be very efficient and very helpful. I sold my flat quickly and with very little hassle. i would definitley recommend this service. It has been properly thought-through and well designed.
Miss Jane Hollingworth saved £1935 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We are really pleased with way our sale and purchase was dealt with by House Network. The money we have saved has been WELL worth it. We do recommend giving this service a go, it works and is significantly cheaper than the standard estate agent.
Mrs Serena Welch saved £8775 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Amazing value - we saved several thousand pounds.
Janet & John Nichols saved £4335 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Truly great service and great value. I was recommended to HN by my sister, and I have been very pleased with all aspects of my sale. Would not hesitate in using HN again if needed.
Steve Lansley saved £2775 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thought that the marketing of the house, photos, floor plans and website was great. Very impressed with the service.
Martyn Foxhall saved £1980 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Brilliant company who deliver what they promise..
Angus Rutter saved £1920 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very happy with House Network's service. The advertising was good and the website for the house was excellent. Communicating with them was easy and replies fairly quick even at weekends. Danielle the account manager was very helpful and friendly. They are not a High Street estate agent but if you want someone to do a good job advertising your house then I would recommend them. And you will save a lot of money.
Mr Howard Lowndes saved £2940 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I just wanted to say a belated thank you for all your fabulous support whilst selling Deer Way & purchasing Rustlings Close. Very impressed by House Network so thank you again. I have & will recommend you!
Mrs Hayley Carruthers saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Sold my house within 5 days for the full asking price, which was set at least £15,000 above the asking prices recommended by 3 traditional local estate agents. House Network advice on how to present a property and their actual presentation with excellent photographs marketed all the major housing sites resulted in an excellent and fast response from genuine serious buyers. My account manager was also excellent in his assessment of the eventual buyer and in his communication with me to negotiate and achieve the asking price. With Housing Network I had the direct personal contact when I needed it, as well as the reliable efficient communication and administration from a well organised centralized office with friendly staff who could always answer any of my questions and requests. This is definitely the way to sell your house!
Mr Jack Kouwenberg saved £5475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent marketing presentation of your property for sale online. We especially like the customisability of the photos and descriptions. We would recommend HouseNetwork to others.
Mr Abid Hussain saved £2355 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Well done House Network, second property sale in two years, great savings both times. Thanks for a great service the property display is first class and generates plenty of interest.
Mr & Mrs Read saved £3675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network marketed our property effectively and we initially sold within 1 week. When our 1st buyer withdrew our agent promply remarketed the property and we had viewers the following day. HN kept us informed along the way and we found our 'members login' really useful for keeping a track on our property activity. I would definately recommend HN, their staff are extremely helpful and efficient. Most of all the service is significantly cheaper than high street agents for doing the same job.
Mrs Maxine Moore saved £3030 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We found the service incredibly convenient, we absolutely loved the fact that we could suspend our marketing at any point and pick up again exactly where we left off without loosing any of our marketing time. The best feature for us though was the one off payment with no sting at the end, we paid a flat one off upfront fee which included every aspect of the service. We would certainly use you again and have already recommended you to our family and friends and will continue to do so.
Karen Marshall & Steve Slater saved £2099 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
First Class Service! Kayleigh was our personal estate agent and has been absolutely fantastic throughout the whole process. We were kept updated every step of the way. A million times better than a High Street Estate Agent and would recommend to anyone. Housenetwork reply back to you straightaway either by their messaging system or by telephone, you are not left waiting for days like High Street Estate Agents do. The photographs that are taken were lovely and again are a million times better than ones we have seen used by High Street Estate Agents. Our viewers also commented on them. We have saved £3800 and have had the best service possible. We were a bit sceptical to begin with to pay so little and to receive a good service, but the service was outstanding. We cannot express how much we would recommend Housenetwork and we hope they go from strength to strength!
Mrs KATE HUMPHERYES saved £3188 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I sold my house through House Network (HN) and was 100% satisfied with the service provided. I initially decided to use them because of the huge saving that I could make compared to the high street estate agents.Having saved over £7,000 on high street estate agents fees I can honestly say that I would never sell my property with high street agents again. The team at House Network are professional, friendly and realistic providing sound advice and a process that works.
Mrs Zvezdana Manev saved £6705 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Forget estate agents and their very expensive fees, we sold within a week - house network were prompt and very efficient.
Mr Stuart & Mrs Jodie Greenaway saved £5475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very pleased with the Housenetwork experience, they were extremely efficient, the website was helpful and easy access to everything, the photography was great - which helped sell the property. We cannot praise Housenetwork enough.
Mr & Mrs Cole saved £2400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The whole process was very easy and I'm really pleased I chose to use an online estate agent in general and housenetwork in particular. I would certainly use housenetwork again in the future. The costs are much better than traditional estate agents and the process is easy and smooth. The online viewings record made it really easy to keep track of viewers and their comments.
Miss Gayle Thomas saved £2580 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Having never sold a house before I contacted Housenetwork.co.uk after a recommendation from a relative. One of the best phonecalls I have ever made. The staff were extremely helpful and always there if needed. The photos taken of our now sold property were superb and easily better than any competitor. Other estate agents that I contacted wanted silly money to sell my house. I saved nearly 2 thousand pounds by using Housenetwork. If you are selling your home use Housenetwork you can't go wrong. Simple easy and very well worth it.
Mr Stewart Clitheroe saved £1725 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The overall experience was absolutely fantastic. Excellent in every department. I've already recommended House Network to lots of friends.
Maureen O'Neill saved £750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thought the whole experience was excellent - the photos, price for the service, viewings, online interactive account was all great. I felt comfortable showing people around the property and overall very pleased with the service.
Mrs Kate Hampton saved £7080 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very efficient service from beginning to completion of our sale. Would recommend to others with no hesitation (which I have already done to two other vendors). Excellent value for money, site easy to use and feedback and help provided was second to none. We used the conveyancing service offer for the legal services and cannot thank Katherine Wright enough for the help and support she gave when on the day of completion one of the solicitors down the chain went into administration. Very special thank you Katherine. Thank you Housenetwork team.
Mr STEPHEN LONG saved £2700 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Just wanted to take the opportunity to say how pleased we are with the service that you (Kayleigh) and House Network provided for us during the succesful sale of our house. Throughout, you took an active part in the process, and equally were responsive to our requests. The web-site and associated process works really well. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your service to friends and family.
Mr Gary Leader saved £1871 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We would thoroughly recommend Housenetwork. We found them efficient and friendly, and our viewers too felt they'd been efficiently dealt with. They represent fantastic value for money and we would certainly use them again.
Mr Douglas Tuckerman saved £6585 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House network have been amazing. They have been helpful and efficient. I would never use a local agent again as house network are so much better. Thank you for selling our house!
Mrs Olivia Holland saved £3248 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
It's a no brainer. A first class service for both selling (in my case) and conveyancing, genial, convenient and efficient. Best of all, compared with the traditional high street offerings, where one can pay four or five or more times the cost for a far lesser service, without all the traipsing around involved in that, this means of buying or selling can't be beat. The icing on the cake is that HouseNetwork.co.uk and their conveyancing arm, is probably the best available online in the UK if you're looking to buy or sell property.
Mr DEREK PHARE saved £3900 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is the second time I have sold a property with House Network and really can't see myself using a 'traditional' estate agent again. The property details and photographs (which is what gets people through the door) are far superior to other estate agents. The ability to design your own property site and change details interactively is a real bonus and having the current status of your property sale online so that any of the House Network team can help with any query at any time is also an advantage of this service. I was also grateful that when the conveyancing side was getting bogged down and I was unable to get an update on the situation from my own solicitor, my HN advisor twice managed to get me useful updates from the sellers solicitors which kept me sane! Would definitely recommend House Network for the service alone, but the commission saving is the icing on the cake.
Ms Julia Halliday saved £2325 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
High street estate agents are an outdated business model. HN provides a similar service for considerably better value. HN did a great job at listing my property. The photos and description were excellent. Despite my initial concern that people may be put off by me showing them around the property, rather than an estate agent, the feedback I got was that viewers actually preferred it. The consensus was that estate agents were often unable to answer questions about the property whereas I could instantly provide answers. I had six veiwings in the first three days; accepted an offer within a week; and completed two months later. I would definitely use them again.
Mr Peter Robinson saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Really pleased with the Housenetwork service, always contactable, lots of photos taken and on all the major web portals! Would recommend to family and friends!
Helen Tunnicliffe saved £2602 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Extremely positive experience.
Wendy Pickering and Susan Falla saved £4965 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We decided to give Housenetwork a try after being very disappointed with the poor service from a high street estate agent. It was an excellent decision - a swift and efficient service and so much cheaper than a traditional agent. We'd definitely recommend the company and in fact my sister in law moved to Housenetwork and has already got a buyer - Top marks!
Mrs Maureen Brien saved £4088 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent value for money
Jodie Phillips & Martyn Phillips saved £3375 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I think the service is excellent. From start to finish my encounters with HN representatives has been really good. The survey and photographer person was great, the number and quality of images available to post was great. My sales manager; Danielle Cliffe was faultless in her professionalism and client care. A pleasure to speak to. The viewing booking team also were fantastic, always polite and accommodating when calling to make appointments with me.. The follow up email confirmation system works well, as a helpful reminder that you can refer back to as a bookings diary. Considering how much less expensive house network are as a sales agent I didn't feel I lost out in any way compared to using a traditional high street 'estate agent'. Even the for sale signs and marketing look smart and of decent quality - not cheap which gives a positive first impression. I'm a genuinely satisfied customer all factors considered and would absolutely use HN again, no hesitation.
Lucy Carey saved £2999 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great service. The advert and photos were excellent, and managing the advert my self was also great. The service from the agents was also excellent, they were quick to respond and the live chat option was good too.
Mr Riken Patel saved £1950 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network enabled me to sell my house via the very popular house selling websites ( such as RightMove). They were very helpful with good feedback and statistics. It enabled me to ensure that the right price was being asked. Would most definitely use them again and recommend them to others. Finally, the cost of selling was a bargain compared to High-street Estate Agents. Thank you House Network and all the team Peter Morris Henley-on-Thames
Mr Peter Morris saved £4530 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Can I take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in the sale of our house. We found the service efficient and professional from start to finish, Kayleigh was our main contact and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I will highly recommend Housenetwork to anyone I know selling their property. A lot of high street agents could certainly learn a thing or two from yourselves! Many thanks.
Mrs Caroline Thornton saved £5400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork worked very efficiently and kept us informed all the way through the selling process. We greatly appreciated the help we received from our agent, Kayleigh, especially when one offer on the house fell through. She was most understanding and supportive in what was a very traumatic experience.
Mr John Stuart saved £2595 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thought the process worked brilliantly, the team were efficient and would use Housenetwork again.
Miss Janice Leary saved £9338 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Best experience we have ever had dealing with an estate agent - a whole other world.
Mr Andrew Taylor saved £2775 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Now in the second decade of the 21st century, I cannot understand why anybody with an Internet connection would try to sell a house with an old-fashioned local agent. House Network were the first to wholeheartedly embrace the concept of an Internet-based house agency, and I believe they still represent the best of reliable and responsible Internet-based house agencies. Our experience of House Network's service surpassed our most optimistic expectations, and I highly recommend them and their associated conveyancing company. Not only was their service far better than a reputable and expensive local agent we previously tried, but we saved many thousands of pounds in agent's commission and conveyancing fees, and our house sold more quickly and with less hassle than we had dared to hope.
Mr Adam Skeaping saved £11700 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The whole concept was very good and very pleased with the fees.
Mr Sam Wilson saved £6075 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We felt as though we took a bit of a risk going with going with an online agent but we were proved wrong!! We got lots of viewings and it was good to actually meet the people coming to see our house as they could ask lots of questions, we had a few offers and finally accepted a great one. Kayleigh who was our account manager was fabulous - kept us up to date and really worked hard for us through to completion. We will be using HN again. Thank you!!!
Mr David O'Dell & Mrs Anwen O'Dell saved £5400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I think the best part of our experience with HouseNetwork (apart from the low fees!) was the fact that we felt in control of the process ourselves. The regular feedback from RightMove meant that we always had an idea of how many people were viewing our details, and we were able to adjust our asking price accordingly. We'd previously been trying to sell with a local agent, with no success at all - and we frankly had no idea what, if anything, they were actually doing to try to find us a buyer. In over a year they arranged us only five viewings, and none of the people coming round showed any real interest in our house. HouseNetwork got us over twice as many viewings in half the time, from people who seemed genuinely interested. And most importantly, they got us a sale!
John and Ann Eakins saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Your service was excellent value for money and I would definately use you again and recommend you to friends (in fact I already have done so!)
Miss Philippa Yates and James Dengel saved £3311 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Happy with the service provided, would recommend to friends. Nothing to improve on - all went well from start to finish.
Mr Christopher Hall saved £1350 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is the second time I have used Housenetwork and was pleased with the overall experience. Would certainly use them again and have recommended to friends and family.
Mr Duncan Smith & Joanna Leach saved £6825 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I just wanted to pass on big Thank You to yourself and your team for helping us complete our house sale a couple of weeks ago. Although very stressful at times you guys gave us very positive feedback and guidance when asked. We have given your details to several of our family and friends - and Kate and I think the process itself is very easy to use and excellent value for money. Many thanks again, Best regards, Kate & Chris Massey
Mrs KATE MASSEY saved £4688 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have just saved ourselves approximately £12,000 by using Housenetwork. We are thrilled. Housenetwork have been professional, helpful and kept us fully informed from start to finish. We would like to wish Housenetwork every success in the future and we would not hesitate in recommending them. The service has been brilliant.

Fantastic value for money!! About a tenth of the price of high street estate agents but you get pretty much an equal service plus you feel more in control of the process as you can manage your house details online. Would recommend.
Mrs Davina Mac saved £7425 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
You provided an excellent service from start to finish at an amazingly low price. I would not hesitate to recommend house network as the way forward in house sales. We have saved a significant amount of money all of which has enabled us to purchase several new items in our new house. Also we had tried two high street agents both of whom failed to market our property well or keep us up to date at all stages in the way you have. I am convinced that the professional service you provided helped us secure a sale in a difficult and challenging property market where others fail. Thank you for your hard work. Simon & Lesley Collins
Mr Simon James Collins saved £3630 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have been highly delighted with the professional service we have received, i have already recommended them to a relative of mine & i received commision for this & my relative had a reduction in the price of their sale. Our property sold within 6 days, we had 3 buyers wanting our property which is very good in the current market. I will use them again, many thanks.
Mrs Linda Bennett saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Value for money and we were in control of our sale without the interference of estate agents who have in the past hindered exchange due to their ineffectiveness.
Mr Evan & Mrs Rosalind Edwards saved £6300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent and so efficient. I would strongly recommend to anyone as an easier, stress free way to sell your house and a lot more reasonable (£) than the high street estate agent. Thanks for all your help!!
Mrs Samantha Parkin saved £1770 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The estate agency provided was excellent.
Carole Banks saved £2610 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An excellent service. This was the first time we've used an online agent and that part of the moving process was pretty painless. The fees are much lower than a high street agent and as long as you don't mind showing people round, it's very straightforward. Having most dealings via the online 'console' worked very well and the friendly staff seemed to be quick to react to requests etc. You have control of how your house is marketed and can keep a check on how many 'hits' you had on rightmove etc. We sold within two weeks (the conveyancing side took considerably longer mind!). Unless the high street estate agents change their business models, I can't see them lasting too long! We have no hesitation recommending housenetwork!
Mr Alistair Tuxworth saved £2498 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network are the ultimate responsive service, at every step of the process you can log into your account and determine what is going on with your sale and understand the clear audited process. Our account handler was very knowledgeable and relaxed, what could have been an insane process of selling was made less so by the team. Even in challenging economic times we had many more viewing that friends of ours who were also selling but had chosen to market and sell their property through traditional Estate Agents. It took time to find the right buyer but once done our sale went through without a hitch. Its also worth knowing that we used Hourse Network Conveyancing both for our sale and our new purchase. Our conveyancer Kimberly is so proactive our FREEHOLD sale was completed in just two months. Regular calls and seeing all the documents uploaded into the system that you can print of scan and return makes the whole process that much faster and cheaper. Why would anyone would want to wait weeks for post responses? The conveyancing process used to be a real headache, this time around I hate to admit it but House Network actually made it strainghf forward, fast and effiicient. No crazy weeks of delays - everything is completed digitally. I would recommend HN and HNC to anyone. I will definately use their services again. A big thank you to Greg and Kimberley.
Mr Gary Follows saved £1680 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
100% delighted with the House Network service - we would have been happy even if it had cost the usual estate agent comission, but House Network saved us about £7000. There are many features of the House Network service that are superior to traditional agents - the automated interface means that there is no risk of queries going unanswered, messages missed, or viewer feedback not being collected - the agents keep following up until all outstanding actions are completed. Ashley, our account manager, was as savvy, knowledgeable? and experienced as the very best traditonal agent and we trusted him 100% to represent our interests with viewers, buyers and other parties in the sale process. Our local Estate Agents are (rightly so) getting worried as since we used House Network, there have been a plethora of local House Network instructions, since people have seen how quickly we have sold (our first viewer in week 1 bought the house). If someone is serious about buying a house, they will be looking on the internet. As such, using House Network is a no-brainer.
Mrs Frances Weir saved £7500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An efficient and helpful service at a good price
Patricia Hurley saved £7800 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The service we received was top class from the outset. A new way of doing things that proved to be a winner. Local Agents move over and make way for the new way of searching/buying/selling houses (at least within certain property price bandings). Without over-exaggerating, House Network delivered on every level with regard to estate agency and I have already recommended them to a couple of friends. On a personal note, our Account Manager, Stacy was also brilliant, taking and making calls was never too much trouble and her manner was always polite and courteous. Thank you House Network, keep up the good work.
Tom Langrick saved £4650 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was very happy with the service received, everything went very smoothly and I would not hesitate to recommend Housenetwork to any friends, family or colleagues.
Christopher Baldwin & Nicola Dyer saved £1815 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was very pleased with how the how sale was dealt with and progressed, liked the idea of paying upfront so that I didn't need to worry about a big bill at the end. Very happy with the service.
Mr Alfred Alan Fisher saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is the 2nd time I've used Housenetwork and my house sold in under 48hrs. On the day the pictures were taken the house was on Rightmove in less than 24hrs! This beats all the estate agents. The price is fantastic in comparison to the usual estate agents and there is always someone on hand to talk to as well as the added bonus of sending messages online which are answered fairly quickly. I didn't use Housenetwork conveyancing so can't comment on this, but I would definately use them again and recommend that others do like wise! I saved around £4700 so its a no brainer really to use them.
Mrs Susan Cooper saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The sale of our property has been long and complicated but Kayleigh has been superb throughout the whole process. She has provided us with information when asked and has chased our buyers and their solicitors whenever necessary. The care and service she has given us over the past months have been of a much higher standard than any "high street agent" we have ever used (and we have used quite a few!)and this has all been done in a pleasant, cheerful and respectful manner. We would recommend Kayleigh and House Network without hesitation to anyone who was thinking of moving house.
Mr & Mrs John Harding saved £7500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The service was very efficient and professional from the outset and right through the process. Providing access to a legal team resulted in a smooth, seamless process, and at a fraction of the cost of a traditional agent. This is the future for property marketing!
Mr RL Ellis & Mrs GM Midgley saved £4800 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Simple process in selling the house. No problems at all. Have recommended Housenetwork to my friends and my Daughter to sell her property.
Mr James Barry Twaddell saved £2775 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I think that Daniel and his team that marketed my property did an excellent job. I was always kept informed by phone and email's to remind me of the appointment and the progress of the sale. Thank you all so much for your proficient work.?
Mr Patrick Mc Keague saved £10590 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was absolutely delighted with the Housenetwork experience. Having never used an online agent to sell my house, I wasn't sure what to expect but from the first, the service was first-class. The house photos were excellent, far better than those done by my high street agent and I liked the fact that I could add my own descriptions to the property details. I had several questions throughout the process, which my account manager handled in a timely manner. The viewing process was very smooth, especially the confirmation emails with time, name of viewer etc. And, compared to my high street agent, the viewers I received were serious, as opposed to being time-wasters. Overall, I think Housenetwork provided superb value for money and I have now recommended the service to several of my friends. I will never use a high street agent again.
Ms Joy Frascinella saved £2962 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House selling can be extremely stressful and the costs involved with a traditional agent can be very steep. However, with housenetwork, the whole process was remarkably easy from start to finish and we saved a significant amount of money. The initial contact was to find out more information about the process of using housenetwork and instructing them to act on our behalf. We spoke to a very knowledgeable individual who could arrange one of their agents to come out to our house immediately which when we wanted to sell our property quickly, was helpful. The marketing of the property was very straightforward as everything is amendable/adjustable online in terms of descriptions and even uploading your own photos. Our property went to market very quickly and could almost have been quicker than a normal high street agent. I know the quality of photos and the amount of information that can be provided was much better than a high street agent. Unlike a normal agent, you can track the entire sales process online from start to finish including viewings, bookings, offers and even communicating with your agent etc. Far better and easier than chasing after a high street agent by phone who often don't keep you appraised of the process and are sometimes clueless when it comes to your property. Enjoyed being able to show interested parties round our property as we knew the answers to every question asked and could really add the personal touch unlike a traditional agent who often doesnt have the information or interest to do so. I think this helped us to secure more offers. Nothing but praise for housenetwork and will use again in future. Special mention to Kayleigh who did us a great service following acceptance of an offer with a persistent purchaser! Thank you. Rachel and Charlie
Mr Charles Pine & Mrs Rachel Pine saved £4980 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Communication was great throughout the whole sale process.
sydney deacon saved £2370 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Recommended by a friend and could not have been happier with the service received. Communication throughout the sale process was 100% efficient and I could not fault anything. Absolutely out of this world. Excellent.
Mr Andrew Gordon saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I cannot fault any aspect of the service received from Housenetwork. The website was great, with fantastic communication at every step of the way. Whenever I needed to speak to you, you were always available - more so than that of my solicitor! The online account was great to log-in and check for updates etc. I will continue to recommend Housenetwork, keep up the good work!
Mr Tim Durant saved £2999 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have already recommended you and will continue to do so, very pleased.
Mrs Wendy Rouse saved £4365 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would like to say that after having three previous 'Estate Agents' which were over priced and basically useless, I came accross the housenetwork site after seeing one of their for sale boards. I was slightly pesimistic due to my previous bad experiences, but decided that i'd give it a go. I chose to pay the upfront fee with no commission after sale. This was a far cry from the £4800 my previous agent would have charged me for selling my home! I can honestly say that from beginning to end my assigned agent Kayleigh was fantastic. My house was online within 48 hours, Kayleigh constantly kept in touch by phone and email and immediately informed me of any pending viewings. I cannot rate her highly enough, she went above and beyond to make sure my sale went through successfully. I recommend housenetwork to everyone now and i will definately use them again when selling my buy to let property. Thank you Kayleigh & Housenetwork, it just proves that you dont need an overpriced, shop based agent to sell successfully!!!
Ms TANIA MOLLOY saved £3000 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have already recommended Housenetwork to friends who are soon to market their property and wouldn't hesitate to do so again, overall very satisfied with the performance of Housenetwork.
Dr Elpitha Burdett saved £3720 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Following the protracted but eventually successful sale, I would like to pass on my views of House Network in general and Ashley Elley in particular. The entire service provided by House Network, from photographs and web presentation through to closure on the property, has been close to perfect. It makes a mockery of the high street estate agents' claim that they provide a better and more personal service. Not a single potential customer new or cared that the connection was made without a local office and every appointment made was adhered to with the help of the House Network's reminders. We always had information and the ability to change the details at our fingertips and even found pausing the advertising from the web over winter effortless. I would also like to single out our assigned support, Ashley, for particular praise. He was consistently personal, positive and professional throughout the many varied challenges in our process and provided support and guidance that was highly beneficial. It was a real pleasure dealing with him. Please could you pass on my gratitude to Ashley for his help. I would also be more than happy if you wished to use any part of this email as part of any marketing collateral. Yours sincerely, David.
Mr David Dobson saved £6750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found Housenetwork to be professional, helpful and extremely efficient. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Housenetwork, in fact I've already done just that.
Miss Emma Knight saved £2745 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were lucky in that we found a buyer very quickly, we sold in a couple of weeks, because we had a good property to sell and knew the value of it and were also realistic with our pricing and with the final offer that we accepted. Everything has gone really smoothly. The Housenetwork salesman took loads of photo's and presented our home in the best possible way. We received feedback from the viewings (also arranged by Housenetwork) very promptly so we knew exactly where we were. We have been very happy with their service.
Mrs Penelope Land saved £4950 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have been pleased enough with House Network that three of my friends/aquaintances have changed to HN for their property marketing...........M J J Holland
Mr Michael Holland saved £3240 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great service - all so easy and straightforward. Am also seeing the same fantastic service through buying my new house as you are selling theirs too
Ms Debbie Hunt saved £2370 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The staff at House Network were very helpful and knowledgeable allowing our sale to proceed without any problems. Would definately recommend them.
Mrs Christine Webster saved £4252 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The service provided by Housenetwork was outstanding. When such a cost-efficient, effective and reliable service is avaliable there is no need to use shop based estate agents when selling a property!
Nigel Armsby saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork provide excellent value and enables you to take full control of your property details, photographs etc. Well worth the money I paid and I have already recommended you.
Emma Colledge saved £2332 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network were the third estate agent we employed to try to sell our property. As an online company with no face to face contact we were a little unsure at first, however HN staff were highly professional and efficient at all times. Unlike some of the other companies we have used, House Network just seemed to want to get the house sold for us, there was no messing about. The fact that all this came at an extremely good price seems a little unbelievable! Thank you House Network we would have no hesitation in using you again.
Linda Errington & Kevin Simpson saved £4492 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would like to pass you some feedback for prospective clients. I cannot speak highly enough about the service House Network have provided for me. Very quickly after I contacted them they sent a very nice man to measure and photograph etc. I live on the Harbour and this man walked right the way around to take some photos from the other side of the water!!! There were 34 pictures and a Virtual tour of my appartment. I was very impressed and have never seen such a very clear view of exactly what my appartment looked like, from every angle. I ALWAYS only look at properties that have a lot of pictures so you can get a good idea of what you are going to see. If there are only one or two I wouldnt bother making an appointment, as to me that says that there is something wrong with the property as not wishing to show the details and photos. I like the stats on HN site and Right Move stats coming through weekly so as to see if you are marketing at a reasonable pice. I have told a lot of people that when they decide to move they really should use HN as they give better value for money and 10% of the cost of High Street Estate Agents. Thank you soooooooooo much for all your help. Kindest Regards Bev Adams Eastbourne
Bev Adams saved £2745 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network delivered a first class and professional service from start to finish. We would have no hesitation in recommending them and will certainly use them again for our next move. We only wish we had known about House Network years ago for our previous move. We could have saved ourselves a fortune!
Mr mark salway saved £3900 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very professional and efficient service
Gavin Yates & Katie Doyle saved £2325 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork offered a first class service from start to finish! The pictures taken were second to none and we always received feedback which was a nice change. Throughout the sale process my dedicated Account Manager was on hand and was always contactable, helpful and would chase where necessary especially in the later stages of the sale. I was so impressed with the service I have already recommended it to a friend and will continue to do so. I saved thousands by using Housenetwork and if ever I come to sell again there is no question as to who I would use!
Janet Barker saved £4650 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Service was fantastic and all the staff we dealt with were both helpful and knowledgeable. Not using a high street estate agent probably saved us in the region of £2k - and the service with House Network was as good as any agent we've used in the past!
Mr Colin McGuiness saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have been very impressed by House Network throughout. Excellent photos and house description, web page. Very good service and communication with office regarding viewings etc. I would recommend housenetwork.co.uk and would certainly use them again.
Simon Sutherland & Fiona McIntyre saved £7275 (based on 1.5% agent commission)

Mr Craig McNicol saved £4005 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I cannot speak highly enough of our House Network experience. From first contact to exchange of contracts today every stage has been better than I expected. Whoever put the work in to design the software has thought of everything and the people employed are all professional and able to put your mind at ease. We were particularly pleased with House Network Conveyancing who were most helpful especially as my brother who was co-owner of the house lives in France. Brilliant service at an incredibly low cost compared with using an estate agent and a solicitor.
Mr Trevor Dakin saved £2220 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very impressed with how quick the details appeared on the website and the quality of the photos. We sold for the full asking price within a week! We were also impressed with the speed of response whenever we raised a ticket. Would recommend Housenetwork without reservation.
Mr Colin Peachey saved £5925 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would definitely recommend House Network to anybody. Its fantastic that you can talk to somebody, email or instant chat most of the time. Its great that you can see on line progress. Its great that if you decide to take your house off the market for a while - and then decide to put it back on again - that you have your remaining marketing days without having to pay any more money. Its fantastic that you can change your own photographs and the way they are displayed. We had 3 viewings and 3 offers. It works ! Overall, a brilliant service and I would highly recommend them to anybody. Thanks House Network.
Mr and Mrs Scott Rowney saved £4335 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service throughout the whole process. Saved us at least £2500 in all. Would definitely recommend using House Network.
Ms Laura Neesham saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
How easy can it get. Photos far outshone all the opposition. No pushy sales people wandering around your house. Every contact followed up. Viewings at times to suit me. Always a quick response to email or phone queries. And we save well over a grand on commission charges.
Mr Peter Holden saved £2940 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The communication throughout the sale process was outstanding, I really appreciated that all correspondence was available to read on my account at all times. Every viewing requests and all feedback. Excellent!
Mr Karl Maughan saved £1455 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork took a lot of the stress out of the selling process and were always there, with the aid of the website to keep me up to date on the progress of the sale. Very happy with the experience and I have already recommended you to friends and family.
Mr Ian Ruston saved £3675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
High street estate agents will eventually disapear, house network is the future when it comes to online property sales. I saved a lot of money and they were just as good as any expensive estate agent. Sold my house within a month, very professional, highly recommended.
Mr Stuart Crichton saved £1800 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Really professional service. We were really impressed by the organisation and effort put in by our personal estate agent. Great photos of our property - definitely helped to sell the place. We will definitely be using House Network again.
Ms Bina Menon saved £5925 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you for selling our home! Your team of experts were all so pleasant to deal with - and we loved the fact that we saved money in the process too!
Mrs Fiona Henry saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I am very happy with the Housenetwork experience and have recommended to friends and family.
Jayne Lambert saved £2738 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
To be honest, having used an online estate agent, i think people are mad to still be using high street agents. They are SO expensive, and not nearly as efficient or effective as the online agent we used. Yes, they have local knowledge, but who has better local knowledge than you, yourself? We used House Network who were brilliant. They replied to our queries etc straight away, the Right Move post for our flat was fantastic (and looked far better than any competing flats which were all being marketed by high street agents!) and provided a lot more information than the high street agents did. The only downside is that you have to do your own viewings. We only allowed viewings on weekends and evenings, as we both work full time during the day. However, we found that this weedled out any time-wasters who wanted to come "this afternoon"! Indeed, the man that ended up buying our flat was so keen on it as he didn't have to deal with an "often slimy, often dishonest" high street agent. If you have ever bought a property I am sure you would agree! I would probably advise against going anywhere that sounds too cheap. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. I would thoroughly recommend House Network.
Paul & Ella Reynolds saved £3525 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found the online page really good for managing the viewings. Contacting Housenetwork was very easy with quick responses both on the telephone and the internet and everyone I spoke to had access to the house file and could always answer my questions.
Miss Katharine Lovering saved £2850 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A great service! We had tried 3 local agents over a year before trying Housenetwork . We accepted an offer about a month after going on with them. The photos they took were far superior to any the local agents took and all the staff were always friendly and helpful. We would thoroughly recommend their services to any friends thinking of moving and would certainly use them again ourselves.
Kate Merriman saved £3270 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was genuinely impressed with the service which you have offered, you sold my house quickly with little stress! What I believe is very important for any business is communication, and whenever I had any questions or queries you responded quickly and efficiently. My biggest compliment for this service is that you a darn site cheaper than local agent and we have saved hundreds by using Housenetwork!
Mr Peter Teale saved £1388 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network acted in a competent and professional manner throughout our sale. We were kept informed of all developements in a timely fashion. I am not very experienced with computers but found their format easy to follow and understand. I also feel their charges for this service to be very reasonable. I have no hesitation in recommending House Network to anyone looking to sell their property.
Mr Gilbert Ogden saved £3885 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have been extremely satisfied with your service, it is definitely the best way to move forward with the housing market. All staff have been very professional and kept me up to date with everything throughout. I have been recommending you to my friends and would use your services again with no reservation. Thank you all at housenetwork.co.uk
Mrs Toni Newman saved £3368 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have always found Housenetwork extremely helpful and professional. They have been instrumental in our house sales and I cannot recommend them highly enough. We have had 3 successful house sales through them, and therefore also saved a lot of money too! I have also recommended them to my friends and solicitor and they have all been very impressed too.
Claire Ashman saved £6749 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service and communication. Cannot fault. Would use again without doubt. And best bit is that it was commision free!
Miss Teresa Lewis saved £1305 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork made us feel very much in control of the process, from selecting photos and descriptions, to pricing, we were always able to make our own decisions and there was always help on hand if required. Viewings were arranged efficiently, with confirmation and reminders by e-mail, we found the statistics and viewer feedback, particularly helpful. They provided a superior service at a fraction of the cost. Thank you Daniel and the rest of the team.
Mrs Ann-Marie Greenstreet saved £6525 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Our property was sold within just one day of going live so are very happy with the House Network. The quality and number of pictures taken to market the property was very good and much better than would ever have been obtained from a traditional agent. In fact based on the service and amount we paid for the sale of the property I'm not sure why people would need to use a traditional agent. I would certainly recommend House Network to anyone who asked.
Mr Simon Maltby saved £2790 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was really impressed with the way House Network have handled my sale. The home visit was well organized and the quality and number of photos and the level of detail in the description far exceeded what you get from a normal high street estate agent. The personal web page you get to monitor the sale is excellent. My personal estate agent, Ashley, was really helpful throughout the process and offered advice whenever required. The service exceeds that of a normal estate agent and I have saved thousands of pounds in the process as well. If House Network can keep offering this level of service at the same competitive prices that they are offering now then the high street agents should be very worried. This is the future of house sellling and it's available now.
John Waterhouse saved £3390 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Never having sold a property before I felt a little bit daunted, but I needn't have worried as Kayleigh helped me tremendously every step of the way to make my sale a very painless experience. I would definately recommend your services. Thank you again Kayleigh for all your help and patience Dorothy Smith
Mrs Dorothy Smith saved £3630 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The level of communication from Kayleigh was brilliant throughout the viewings, and then equally after we'd accepted the offer. Selling a flat in east/central London where everyone is searching online anyway; this certainly saved us several thousand pounds and we still had an offer within 4 months and exchanged within 6 months of putting the place on the market, AND achieved the same price that the local high street estate agents said we might. Highly recommended.
Andy Ralphs saved £5700 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Deciding to use House Network was the best decision we could have made. Great Value for money & Super Service. We would never use a High Street agent again!
Mr David & Mrs Samantha Gates saved £2138 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Fantastic service throughout. Would recommend house network to anyone selling a property and definately will use them again.
Cheryl Jenkins saved £1635 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
First class service and very effective once more. Property sold to viewer number 3 within a week. Thank you House Network.
Mrs Marion Murrells saved £2010 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork have been amazing. They provide all the services conventional high street estate agencies do and the only thing I had to do was show my flat to prospective buyers. I saved around £12,000 in commission fees which was a massive help and it took three and a half months in all. I would definitely use Housenetwork again. Andrea, London
Andrea Pocock saved £7388 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent, would recommend and use again.
Dr Richard Wright saved £4050 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
HOUSE NETWORK HAVE HELPED US SELL OUR LAST 2 HOMES. THEY ARE PROFESSIONAL AND VERY HELPFUL IN ALL ASPECTS OF THE SELLING PROCESS AND OF COURSE THEY ARE A LOT CHEAPER THAN SHOP BASED AGENTS. I WILL DEFINATELY USE THEM AGAIN AND I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYBODY WANTING TO SELL.
Robert and Linda Gouldstone saved £4425 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very good, professional service - all the people we had viewing commented on how professional a service you were to deal with, definately outshone the local estate agents that we are dealing with on our purchase, highly recommended.
Mr John Deeney saved £3150 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Don't waste your money on regular agents when you can have something better at a much lower price! Efficient, courteous and effective.
Simon Christian Hunt saved £4050 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork did everything a traditional agent can do, only better. They are really making the most of online tools through beautiful online pics and profile are top notch. Great value, especially considering the continued support from a dedicated account manager. Doing the viewings myself was actually fun, and probably the best paid 'work' I'll ever do considering I saved over £5,000 pounds! Would definitely use again.
Mr Gerard Pieters saved £4320 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The House Network team were excellent from start to finish and sold my house in less than 2 weeks. I was amazed by the responsiveness & efficiency on everything from the first contact through setting up the website and arranging viewings right through to managing offers. The online portal makes things really easy. I would recommend House Network to anyone and would suggest no one ever uses a high street estate agent again if they have a house that's easy to sell!
Miss Nicola Jones saved £10275 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network have provided us with a friendly, helpful, effective and efficient service. Great value for money. Why pay more for less with a high street agent?
Mr Allan & Mrs Sarah Wilson saved £3712 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Cannot recommend House Network highly enough. Had an accepted offer after being on the market for 8 days. My account manager, Ashley, and anyone else I dealt with were professional and friendly and did whatever was asked. The best part was saving over £2000 from what traditional estate agents wanted as commission. House Network is the way forward, would never use anyone else again.
Mr Steven Glass saved £3638 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Many thanks for the excellent service you have given me. Selling my house has taken some time yet all your staff have been consistently friendly, helpful, efficient and above all patient ! - I am so glad that I chose to market my property with you rather than a regular estate agen. You offer a comparable service at a fraction of the cost. I also appreciate you keeping to my original contract and not charging me your current fee - a sign of true integrity. I have recommended you to several people - one viewer of my house signed up with you and I will continue to sing your praises to anyone embarking on the stressful journey of house selling. With best wishes for your continued success (and special thanks to Danielle)
Mrs Louise Purcell saved £2640 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I think if I were managing my business via this method, I would do it exactly the same way. Online you get prompts when appropriate, you can manage everything yourself if you wish with support on hand and the correspondence is in plain English which makes things easier at such a hectic time. Additional products to purchase, if you wish (we introduced a sign after a couple of months).The partnership with Rightmove is great. The fee is just right. An all round excellent and cost effective experience. We have recommended to friends & family already
Mrs Mary Nicholas saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We had several valuations done by traditional estate agents and were shocked at their commisson rates, so decided to give Housenetwork a try. We have not regretted our decision for a moment. The service has been professional and friendly and we sold our house within six weeks for over the asking price (which itself was higher than any of the other estate agents' recommendations). We felt it was much better to show prospective buyers around the property ourselves, having viewed quite a number of properties where the estate agent could not answer our questions. We also used Housenetwork Conveyancing, who were just as efficient. All in all, we have saved about £3500. We would not hesitate to recommend Housenetwork to anyone who is considering selling their property.
Mrs Teresa Smith saved £2940 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was really impressed with the level of service offered. House Network are very professional and did a better job than local estate agents. I would definitely recommend the site to family and friends and would use again in the future.
Mrs Sarah Crawley saved £5588 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We found you in 2006 and thought you were a risk worth trying and maybe too good to be true? we risked it and you were true to your word. We sold our first home with you, rented out our second home then went on to sell it with you. My sister and friend have both used you and I have recommended House Network to friends looking to sell and rent their homes. I can't fault your customer service or prices. Well done! I still continue to recommend when buying and renting houses comes up in conversation, in fact I just forwarded your link to a friend on facebook only this morning!
Mr & Mrs Richmond/Karen saved £3728 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Absolutely fantastic experience! Kept up to date on a regular basis via e-mail / text messages so very convenient when working. Save £'s in comparison to conventional estate agents, many thanks to all involved at Housenetwork..
Mr Malcolm Collins & Mrs Judy Collins saved £2249 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
THANK YOU TO ALL AT HOUSE NETWORK FROM MARK AND MARION LLOYD!!!!! THANKS TO YOU WE ARE MOVING TO DEVON NEXT WEEK!!! WE CAN'T SING YOUR PRAISES ENOUGH FOR SUCH AN EXCELLENT, PROFESSIONAL SERVICE. We are telling everyone we know if they ever sell their house to use HOUSE NETWORK. THANK YOU for everything.
Mrs Marion Lloyd saved £4350 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I cannot recommend House Network more highly. This is our 3rd sale using them and I'm just amazed at how easy and slick it has been. All of the staff I dealt with, especially Ashley (our agent) were professional, efficent and polite. I am amazed that people still use high street agents and pay the huge percentage that they charge, I will always go to House Network!
Mrs H Van Klaveren saved £10800 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were extremely impressed with quick and professional marketing of our property. Within an hour of paying for the sales package I had received a phone call to arrange a visit to our property to take photos and prepare the floor plan.
Mrs Amanda Oakes saved £2805 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The sevice and expertise provided by Housenetwork was excellent. From the initial contact and taking of house details, including numerous photographs of the property, the experience has been very controlled and supervised. I consider this to be essential in what is for most people a very trying experience. Updates and regular contact has been excellent and I was always fully involved in all aspects of the proceedings. I have recommended Housenetwork to a number of people and will most certainly use their services in the future. It is impossible to argue against the cost and value of service provided as compared to the High Street Estate Agents.
Mr Barry Archer saved £1724 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
It was a pleasure dealing with Housenetwork, we sold our property within a month, it was more difficult finding a new property as we are moving to Dorset from London. Ashley kept us informed throughout. Saved a fortune on estate agents fees which is money needed when moving. Well done housenetwork. Thanks Peter
Mr Peter Osborne saved £3525 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
What can I say? When I made the decision to go with Housenetwork I did realistically expect to recieve a service which reflected the price. However my order was placed online within minutes of enquiring, photographer on site very quickly, advert prepared and ready to go live 24 hours later. Full control over my own listing, which was very important to me. Every phone call and/or ticket raised answered immediately, and always with the time to talk and explain. Viewings arranged very efficiently by phone and confirmed by email, every time. I was super-impressed with the quality of the advert and photo's. I've spent a lot of time on Rightmove these last few months, and I always know when I'm looking at a Housenetwork listing. The wide angle shots really show the house in it's best light, and frankly, put other estate agents to shame. Housenetwork were recommended to me by the seller of a house I viewed, and I've recommended them twice myself already to friends who have also been impressed and had great results. Genuinely, the best company I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. A high street EA could not have given me any more, apart from a large bill at the end. Thanks Housenetwork. 10/10. There won't even be a choice to make, if and when I come to sell my next home.
Mr David Edwards saved £3180 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network were brilliant in constantly chasing up slack conveyancers in my chain, I'm indebted to Danielle at Housenetwork for her dilligence, would definitely use House Network again and recommend them to anyone.
Denise Walsh saved £2835 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The whole process of advertising and selling our house through Housenetwork had clearly been well-prepared by the firm from the outset, with all possible questions from ourselves and for potential buyers covered on the website or with a quick phone call. The visit for photos/video tour, room measurement and energy assessment went fine, with the results on-line proving an excellent showcase. We were also pleased with the facility for feedback at regular intervals. We would recommend the firm without hesitation. All in all, a faultless performance from Housenetwork.co.uk!
Mr William Greene saved £4950 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A superb service from start to finish. Someone was always available whenever we needed them (starting with a live chat with an agent who gave excellent advice at 9pm in the evening). We would never return to a traditional agent and can't recommend highly enough. We had over 10 viewings, all of which were arranged efficiently and professionally and a number of offers. The whole process ran very smoothly and we are struggling to see how traditional agents will survive when in competition with such a quality online service.
Mrs Rachel Walker saved £2212 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you house network for all your help, support and advice. it was a little strange giving our post code each time to start with but as the process progressed Ashley soon learnt our names. We will definately sell with you again; it really was the same service as the estate agent in the high street without their price tag.
Mr & Mrs Callard-Weller saved £6225 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Moving is never easy but I would say we had a very good experience with House Network. They were very efficient and professional. Apart from doing our own viewings they were there to do everything else. It would have cost us so much more through a local estate agent and it just wasn't necessary to have one. As long as you don't mind showing people around I would recommend them to anyone. We were updated with a phone call and an email with every viewing, and there was always feedback. We had some difficulty at the exchange stage and House Network were there to negotiate too. I would definitely use them again.
Miss Emma Russell saved £5662 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I live in Leicestershire and used HouseNetwork.co.uk to sell my four bedroomed house for £269,000 - only £6,000 less than the £275,000 asking price! It went live on RightMove.co.uk on 25/01/2012, sold on 27/02/2012 and "completed" on 04/04/2012 - in this time I had seven viewings and four offers; one ridiculous, one cheeky, one okay and one very good.
Originally I had a local agent view the property and their standard fee was 1.25% - i.e £3,362.50 if it sold for £269,000. After some negotiation they reduced this to a sliding scale of 0.75% to 1.25% depending on how much they sold it for. I decided to look on the Internet, using Google, and came across about four companies offering a similar online estate agency service. After talking to each of them, and having pulled their accounts from companies house, I decided that HouseNetwork.co.uk was the least risky option. To be honest, I still had reservations and ended up talking to their MD via the online chat facility. I asked some really awkward questions, but was fairly happy with the replies - plus the transcript was emailed to me so I had it all in writing lest anything went wrong. As you may have guessed, I am a very risk averse individual! I decided that at £425 plus VAT (special promo deal that has now expired - but I'd have happily paid the current £495 + VAT fee to be honest!) it was worth a punt given it would cost nearly £3,000 more with a local agent.
I paid my money in December, to grab the special deal, but didn't go live until the end of January so no money wasted as clock doesn't start ticking until you say go. The agent that visited to take the pictures was really friendly but professional and he produced some excellent floorplans (way better than most estate agents - some don't even bother....they are so lazy!) and some decent photos (far greater quantity than you get with most local agents listing on RightMove.co.uk) that showed off the best features of my house. Three of my viewers also commented on how good the service was and couldn't believe the difference in price between online and local services - one in particular was left counting how much they could have saved!
The online portal for bookings and feedback works really well, for sellers and buyers alike, but in the event of any problems, or even if you'd just like the personal touch, then you can ring the direct line number for the agent looking after your account - Ashley in this case and he was excellent at the crucial point of price negotiation. You will have to show viewers around your house personally, but to my mind you are probably the best person to do so - afterall, who else knows as much about it? In my experience most local agents will, unless you point blank refuse, ask you to perform viewings anyway - not sure what they really do for their money given 99% of buyers find the house on RightMove.co.uk or elsewhere on the Internet anyway! Have a think about what you want to say beforehand and maybe do a trial run with your partner or a friend. I was a bit nervous initially but actually enjoyed it once I got going and I think the viewer liked the personal touch and past history I was able to provide - do leave them to have a look round on their own afterwards though.
I rarely provide feedback such as this, as I am simply too busy with work/home life, but such was the excellent service that I felt it would be unfair not to do so. I would recommend HouseNetwork.co.uk to anyone and everyone and have certainly sang their praises to familiy and friends. Don't think the local agent, when ringing me for an update on progress, was overly pleased when I told them how good the service was.... food for thought no doubt and not good news for their business model in my opinion.
Assuming HouseNetwork.co.uk keep their prices competitive, I wouldn't even bother looking at alternatives next time we move and this is coming from someone who normally spends a lot of time researching the best deal! Give them a try, you won't be disappointed and you'll save yourself a fortune - the saving paid for my solicitors (buy and sell), house survey and still left me with a few hundred pounds! Throughly recommended and many thanks for making my house sale such a pain free experience. :o)
Mr Paul Scranage saved £4035 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An excellent service making house sales as easy and economic as possible.
Mr Chris Philippou saved £5400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Should we ever need to sell again we would be more than happy to use your services. Queries were always dealt with promptly and your staff were always pleasant to deal with. Thank you.
Graham Edward Thomas and Janet Mary Thomas saved £4050 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Top rate professionalism and customer service at every stage. I have already recommended House Network to a friend and I will certainly be a return customer in the future. Run and hide High Street Estate Agent.
Mr Matthew Naughton saved £2549 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is the second time in four years that I have used House Network to sell my property. Both times the property was sold within 3 months and for a fraction of the cost of using a traditional estate agent. Very efficient service, good presentation of property details and great value for money. The modern way to sell your house. Would definitely use again and recommend to others. Many thanks.
Ms ALISON GRAY saved £2692 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Friendly and efficient; would definitely recommend.
Mrs Diane Gillespie saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
In the light of your excellent service, we have already recommended you to friends and family. Not only have we been very pleased by your efficiency, but potential buyers have also commented on your friendly and efficient service and the opportunity to arrange viewings immediately. So, ins summary, we have enjoyed working with you, and have felt you have given us excellnet value for money. Thank you. Chris and Phoebe.
Professor Chris King saved £7395 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have been extremely impressed from the beginning to the end of the selling experience. The most impressive part was the account information we had about every step of the process. High Street estate agents just don't provide you with the information you need. And the service was provided at a fraction of the cost that other agents charge, for a far more superior service. We would not hesitate in recommending House Network.
Mr & Mrs Hughes saved £2775 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent way to sell a property. Will certainly use Housenetwork again.
Mrs M Wood saved £4770 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service, personal account manager was superb, house network made a difficult and trying time stress free. Thank you.
Vincent McDermott saved £4425 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Initially we were concerned about the absence of local "back up" and the fact that we were not great users of the internet. However, this proved not to be a problem and the fact that a sale fell through was in no way down to your staff. Given the cash savings, I would certainly recommend your service.
Ian Nelson saved £3375 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We had had a local estate agent trying to sell our house over the Summer without success. If they had been succesful their fee would have been £6,000 incl.VAT. We decided to try Housenetwork over the winter just to keep the house in the public eye. We did not rate our chance of selling over the winter very highly. First of all we were really impressed with Housenetworks photographs and more importantly we are delighted that they have managed to sell our property for us and only charged a modest fee.
Richard Birdsall saved £5250 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The service provided by HN was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and we were kept informed every step of the way. Using the website was very easy and being able to manage your own property page made life a lot easier. Thanks for helping us Sell!
Mrs Clare Woodard saved £2400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service by the dedicated account manager, Danielle Cliffe. Always contactable, or team willing to assist. Reliable professional service guaranteed!!
Mrs Sangita Pankhania saved £4575 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have had bad experience's with local estate agents and we simply couldn't afford to pay thier fees!..We had been recommended by friends to use Housenetwork. We have had excellent service and the fixed fee option really worked well with our budget. Having the luxury of managing our own account and advert made it an excellent all round experience. Do not use a local estate agents as they don't do much for their money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mr Anand Lanka saved £1380 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Just wanted to write to let you know how impressed I was with the service House Network provided. I was a bit uncertain about using an on-line based estate agent but after reading the feedback from other customers I decided to give it a go. From the start I was impressed by the professionalism of the staff & how easy it was to update the web page with photo's & other details. Although I didn't put the house on the market straight away (13 months) when I did decide to sell it, it only took a quick call & within 24 hours it was on Rightmove & all the other sites. In 3 weeks I had 6 views & 3 offers one of which was accepted, I have recommended your services to many people & will continue to do so, as I have saved over £5000 in the process.
Mr Andrew Barnes saved £5550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I cannot praise Housenetwork enough. The were very efficient, courteous, helpful and gave a great service. We put the house on the market on a Saturday at the end of September, had our first viewers on the following Tuesday and over the next few weeks we had viewings booked every week. After just 5 weeks we had an offer. By the end of January we had completed our sale. I would definitely recommend Housenetwork to all my family, friends and colleagues. It was a very positive experience.
Mrs Christine Hurst saved £3735 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is an excellent alternative service for those sellers that are motivated to sell their own property. HN's online ticketing system, process and methodology meant that the whole process was efficiently managed, from viewings, feedback and follow up through to completion. I had a direct line to my adviser, Ashley Elley, who was very accessible/responsive, friendly and proactive. When called upon, he gave good advice on tricky situations. I was able to fit in more viewings than a high street agent would and so was able to sell my property in half the time it took similar properties that went with a high street estate agent (who are juggling 25-35 properties in their portfolio a week). I will never use a High St agent again. The ones that came to do a 'valuation' were expensive, often misleading/tried to pull the wool over my eyes and did not have as good a knowledge of my property/block as me. They didn't have my best interests at heart and would have cost me £4-5k for their 'service'. Online estate agents are the way forward.
Mr J C saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very glad we used housenetwork as our estate agents, because of it being online it is affordable, but you would think the communication would be less but it wasn't, we were given our own advisor with a direct line who always took our calls and did above and beyond her job we feel.
Mrs Angela Roberts saved £1695 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Selling our house through House Network was a pleasure right from initial discussion through to completion. I will recommend you to anyone thinking of selling their property. All staff were friendly and helpful, viewings were arranged and confirmed easily and efficiently. When we had a number of offers on our property, our case manager was excellent at guiding us to a decision. He was also really helpful to our buyers and kept the sale on track. Staff communicated excellently with each other too, so if our case manager were on leave it wasn't a problem. The property report updates were helpful and useful idea. And all of this for a fraction of what a traditional estate agent would have charged. Fantastic value and top service. Excellent service from your conveyancing service too. We've moved several times so are comparing you from experience.
Christina James saved £5475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were absolutely amazed at the response we had after listing our property for sale with House Network....within 10 days we had 10 viewings and 5 offers and ended up with a bidding war. I would recommend them to anyone considering selling online. The conveyancing team were brilliant as well and again I would recommend them....We saved over £7000
Mr Alec Cranford saved £6900 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
It was an absolute pleasure working with House Network on the sales of our property. We were left unimpressed with high sreet agencies and their unhelpful staff - not once did they actually leave their office to do a viewing on our behalf thus we figured 'why pay them the thousands of pounds'. House Network supported us throughout the process and we are so impressed that by recommendation my parents are now also going to enjoy huge savings on their house sale. We had more bookings/viewings through House Network than the high street agencies, maybe coincidence or proof that the high street agents do not go out of their way for their customers or to make the sale.
Mrs Amelie Orrow saved £3615 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Better than any high street agent - We found Dean Fisher to be efficient and helpful This method is a big improvement in house selling and we can highly recommend this site
Mr Rodney John Hunt & Mrs Jacqueline Brampton-Hunt saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service for those sellers that are motivated to sell their own home and do not want to pay extortionate high street estate agent prices. Thoroughly recommended.
Chris Hurrell & Sarah Hurrell saved £3075 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Ashley was very good and really looked after us during the sale process, many thanks.
Mrs Kimberley Clarke saved £2625 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Could not fault the service received from House Network. The team delivered on everything promised and were always polite and friendly during any communication.
Richard Reed saved £2565 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have had a fantastic experience from start to finish with house network. Great value for money, great marketing, very speedy responses to queries etc, fantastic personal service and would highly recommend. Thank you for making what was a very stressful time as easy as possible for us! Many Many thanks !
Mrs Barbara Johnson saved £3255 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A first class service from start to finish. Client advisors are knowledgeable, polite and extremely helpful in navigating you through what is a very scarey process (buying and selling of houses). Even if your personel client advisor is not available, there is always a very helpful member of the team to assist. The process is very clear as they lead you through every step and often go beyond the call of duty to help out. Why anyone would use the over inflated cost of using estate agents is beyond me!
Mr Dean Leagas saved £3900 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is the future to selling a property! HN staff were helpful and prompt to answer any questions. The service was quick and efficient, and you have a good amount of control over the presentation of your advertisements; adjust the text, use your own photos etc. (although their photos were very good to begin with!). I prefer to show people around myself because I know the details of the property, so this worked for me and it must be better for buyers. This also works because you get some feedback directly at the time from people viewing - so you'll get a feeling who will be a waste of time, and who will be straight forward to deal with, and what people are looking for. For us, House Network were the trouble-free element in our house sale - and I would use the services again without question. In short, a well thought out service, and yes, we saved a huge sum of money compared to conventional estate agents.
Mr Lawrie Baber-Scovell saved £5445 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Trying to save money is something everyone tries to do but I was always worried about what the catch is..I had local estate agents come and quote selling my house and what fees they would take on completion, these worked out as being 2-3 thousand more than what House Network were offering. I decided to take the plunge and went with House Network and couldn't be happier. Initial pictures and details of the house were ready in a day and went live as soon as i approved them. Polite and courteous service from the agents when dealing with viewings, offers and and other details necessary made the whole process so much easier. I would definitely use House Network again if i were to sell my new property in the future and would recommend them to anyone asking for estate agents, lower costs and great service.... what more could you ask for!
Miss Katy Tong saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A fresh and cost efficient way to sell your house, simple process to manage online - well worth a go!
Mr & Mrs Cooper saved £3345 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is our 3rd sale with HN. We buy and sell houses for a living and will never go back to using High Street Agents having experienced their great service and value for money! Our viewers often commented on how professional and efficient the viewing team were, and the whole process from beginning to end was excellent! The way forward for estate agents I'm sure! See you when we're ready to sell the next one!
McDonald Kerns Ltd saved £2415 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I am so happy i used house network they were brilliant - the service was so efficient, the staff were very approachable and feedback was always given. Every call or message i made to them was replied to. Rob was totally fantastic, I have recommended you to everyone i know and i will never use a hgh street agent again. What a brilliantly executed service ! Thank you.
Jason & Katy Heaton saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An excellent service for the price compared to local bricks and mortar agents. Would defnitely use again and recommend to others.
Mr Paul Bruce saved £3045 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Many thanks to Ashley and all at housenetwork on the sale of our property, excellent service will have no hesitation in recommending you.
Mr & Mrs Mahon saved £2624 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Danielle - I wanted to thank you and HouseNetwork for giving me the opportunity to sell my property with a reasonable agency cost. I think your services has a great value in comparison with some high street agencies out there.
Dr Pejman Azarmina saved £3735 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I just cannot recommend Housenetwork highly enough. I will continue to recommend them to my friends, family etc, who are considering moving home. After a lacklustre selling period with a high street estate, i dropped lucky and found Housenetwork. I'll certainly never use anyone else now. All the staff were always helpful, highly professional and always available for advice. Sign up, you wont regret it.
James Connolly saved £2475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network have done a really fantastic job selling our house. The system for booking viewings and gathering feedback was very efficient and having an online log of progress was really useful. We did come across some suspicion amongst our viewers because we weren't using a 'regular' agent, but when we explained why we had chosen an online agent they all saw the advantages. When it came to negotiations, we received extremely professional, prompt and helpful service. And all this for a fraction of the price of a high street estate agent. We would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you House Network.
Dr Tej and Mrs Harriet Kaushal saved £4762 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I doubt I would be the first to be wary of something as radical as an online estate agent. However, I am delighted with the service levels, the speed of communications, the openness of everything and the responsiveness to feedback. If a seller doesn't mind forgoing newspaper and window ads in the internet age, and showing people round themselves, this is the perfect low cost solution. I will definitely recommend you. Thank you.
Mr Paul Peace saved £1905 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork have done us proud. Local estate agents wanted many thousands of pounds to do the same job, in our case one quoted over £15K compared to a few hundred pounds with Housenetwork! If you are happy to show people around your home (or get a friend to do it), it really is worth the savings. Once we had our buyer, they worked tirelessly in the background to keep things moving along and most importantly, kept us informed at all times. I would recommend Housenetwork in a heartbeat!
Mr Colin & Mrs Karen Lloyd saved £7350 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found Housenetwork to do exactly as they said they would on their website. Kayleigh Emmott the account manager was fantastic, i could not praise her involvement in the sale of my property more highly. She is a real credit to housenetwork.
Jonathan France saved £2138 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
What a pleasure to deal with a company that has the sellers/buyers needs at heart, after 2 different attempts with local estate agents and no contact it was a pleasure to deal with a company that had regular contact and kept us informed all the way through the process, we would definately recommend them and already have done.
Mrs Linda Jarvis saved £2925 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have already recommended Housenetwork to all my friends and family. I don't think that using an online service negatively effected the amount of viewings we had, as we had 2-3 a week. Paying the fees up front to save money was a relief when we did come to sell the property and didn't have any additional monies to pay.
Laura Pugh saved £2250 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very happy with the service housenetwork offered. Friendly, professional staff - everything went well, with no hitches.
Lee Gutteridge & Jenny Gutteridge saved £10350 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Having only ever used high street estate agents before, I made the decision to give House Network a go. I'm glad I did - I sold my flat, and the service I received was efficient and courteous. I really can't see what a 'conventional' estate agent would have added. I had to show viewers round myself, but given the frankly poor viewings I've been on with estate agents, that was actually a good thing. More people should definitely give you a try.
Ms Laura Gilbert saved £2805 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The whole service was absolutely first class from beginning to end. It just worked. You always answered my calls, always got back to me quickly and were generally very efficient and helpful. I have been really impressed with the service and recommended you to several friends. Thank you!
Miss Charlotte Marshall saved £5400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very prompt and efficient service and we managed to sell our house in rural North Devon on the second viewing after just 3 weeks on the Market. Our concerns over selling in a rural area vs a city or town were unfounded as House Network did a fantastic job - even our solicitor was impressed! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and use you again in the future.
Mr Turk & Mrs Vanstone saved £5250 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The sale of our house went through very smoothly and relatively quickly in coneyancing terms , it has saved us alot of money and I would definitely reccomend anyone to try it
Mr & Mrs Hird saved £4500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have sold two houses with HN inside of six months, in this "poor market". I am at a complete loss as to why people are still using regular estate agents. Approx savings to date in excess of £8K, worth a bit of time and effort in my book!
Mr philip cooper saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
From the initial contact, the House Network were fantastic, our contact was Gregg and the communication we received was second to none, they contacted us by phone and email, for every appointment confirmation, offers received and also chased up every potential viewer for feedback so you know exactly where you are. The admin interface is also very informative too, giving you all the stats for site visits from Rightmove visits, I decided to pay the All upfront fee option as it was the best option for me and saved me the most money, but which ever option you decide, I'm sure the service will be as good regardless. I have recommended the House Network to all my friends and family and will definitely use them again next time. Many Thanks again for a fantastic service!
Mark Williams saved £5250 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I thought this would be too good to be true but it is a genuinely brilliant service. Housenetwork sold my house quicker than, and for more than the high street estate agents expected . My contact Rob was very friendly and professional. I never felt like I was dealing with a typical estate agent 'wide boy' such as those from the high street who came to value my house when I was considering using them. I saved about £3K by using them and have started recommending to all friends and family who are moving home. This is surely the end of rip off high street agents!!! THANK YOU!!!!
Mr Matthew & Mrs Sara Ryan saved £2715 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
My Mum recommended housenetwork.co.uk after reading an article in a Sunday newspaper. We had no idea if it would work but felt encouraged enough by the quality of the website to give it a go. We had our own named agent, Dan, throughout, who was great. The pictures and brochure looked fantastic and we we sold our house very quickly to a cash buyer. When we had our Sold board up we had two locals knocking on our door asking what we thought of the service and they have since put their houses on the market with housenetwork. We would definitely use them again and saved ourselves several thousands in estate agents' commission.
Stephanie Avery-Reynolds saved £3900 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I must admit I was a little nervous about using an online estate agent, but I could not have been proved more wrong - House Network were fast, professional and efficient from the start and I would thoroughly recommend using them to family and friends! I would never use a high street estate agent again and the more people taking the chance to start using House Network the better.....SUPERB EXPERIENCE OVERALL!
Nyree Grieve saved £2010 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network are the obvious choice. Compared to local estate agents we saved a lot of hard earned money. The service provided to suit our needs was superb. Mr J and Mrs G A Evans.
Mr John Evans saved £2895 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you House Network for selling our house in just 6 weeks! Highly recommended.
Mrs Anna Edwards saved £4838 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network has saved me thousands! Local agents were dubious about what kind of service we would recieve due to the upfront fees but we have been delighted to have proved them wrong!
Mrs Catherine Bandey saved £3420 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is the future of estate agency! We saved thousands of pounds and have had a really easy house sale; remarkable considering the economic climate at the present! 12 weeks to sell our property was pretty good under the circumstances, and Danielle handled everything very well. Photos were great, the place really came across well in the particulars. We even used their conveyancers which cut costs further and they couldn't be more professional or on the ball. I'm telling anyone I can to sell their house this way - it makes sense! Thankyou Housenetwork.
Ms Heather Wood saved £5400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would like to say a massive thank-you to Housenetwork for an excellent efficient service. Everything was fantastic, they say "you get what you pay for" with Housenetwork you get a wonderful service at a very low cost, we have saved so much money . Thanks to Rob Bacon for his efficiency and putting up with all my calls and questions nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend this estate agency to everyone. Definitely a highly professional team of people. A FIRST CLASS PACKAGE .
Steve Green saved £4230 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
It was a relief not having to use a conventional estate agent. House network were always efficient and it was good to be able to do your own viewings, answering questions as and when they come. I would highly recommend them and would use them in the future
Rebecca Aston saved £9750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Keep on doing what you do well! We've been very impressed with your service - particularly the swift, efficient and clear communication at all times. Excellent value. Many thanks
Mr Paul Carter saved £2445 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A very good service from start to finish at a fraction of the usual estate agents fees. At first i was very wary of using an online estate agency but now i would highly recommend it to anyone in any doubt as it literaly saves you a fortune that you can use on your house purchase.
Mr Peter Connolly saved £1575 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
What a fantastic company you are. All the staff we have dealt with have been very professional and courteous. A special thank you to Robert our manager and a big thank you to Neema our conveyancer. Our property sold very quickly to the first viewer who came to look at our house 4 days after it was advertised. Is this a record? Thank you once again for an excellent service and we will certainly recommend you to our family and friends. Please pass on our praise to Dean Fisher for an excellent team.
Mr D Plant saved £3548 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is the second time we have used House Network, and again we've found the whole service easy, efficient and great value for money! If anyone out there is nervous about trying it over the services of a High Street estate agent, I'd urge them to take the risk - it's paid off for us twice now and we wouldn't go anywhere else when selling a property!
Mrs Tara Walker saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A great experience together with a saving of £5.5K versus local estate agents option. This may not be suit people who are not present or who are not prepared to conduct their own viewings, but if you are not in that category, I see no downside. Even the property details are superior to some traditional agents. I am recommending House Network to everyone and my partner has also just sold her house inside 3 weeks using them. If I was a traditional estate agent, I would be worried in this internet age
Mr Humphreys saved £5475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
First Class service, an amazing saving on fees, we will never use an estate agent again to sell a house.
Neil & Pauline Munro saved £6225 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Considering the amount of money and the hassle I saved by using house network, especially on the all inclusive deal, I would not consider using any one else. My property was sold in 35 days to the third viewers at the full asking price. No brainer!
Mrs CAROL SMITH saved £2850 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I had over 80 viewings with two local agents which was very intrusive and produced not one offer! I then signed up with House Network and after just a dozen viewings i had 2 offers! This has to be a better way to sell houses where a fair commision is paid rather than over paying a high street agency for doing viewings that you can conduct yourself and provide direct answers to prospective buyers questions. I will definitely use your services again.
Sarah Williams saved £2970 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This was a clean, efficient experience without all of the stress usually associated with house selling and buying, Thank you Housenewwork for a fast speedy smooth sale.
Mrs Judy Durn (c/o Mr Frank Howard Cosnett) saved £3150 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Traditional Estate Agents beware of extinction! This was the most efficient and professional service we have ever encountered when selling a property. The agent arrived as promised on a Friday morning and prepared the details, floorplans, photographs and EPC and he was quick, accurate and very helpful in explaining the process. By 10pm on the same day our property site was ready for us to approve which we did over the weekend with only a couple of minor changes and our site went live on Monday - a vast improvement on the usual week to 10 days with a High Street Agent. Viewings were arranged by phone and confirmed by email and feedback requested by Housenetwork following each viewing, and it was extremely helpful to have everything in writing rather than an occasional phone call as we have previously experienced. The daily statistics of web viewings were also very helpful - additional information not available previously. We were delighted that in less than 3 weeks we received an offer and exchanged Contracts 3 weeks later. Thank you to all involved at Housenetwork - we have already recommended the site to friends and family and will continue to do so, especially as we estimate to have saved over £5,500 by not the using the usual Estate Agent!
Mr ROBERT DONES saved £5100 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Well done HN! We sold our house to the first person that viewed. Our purchasers were incredibly slow, but HN persevered to bring it through to completion. We never had to chase HN for information, they were always very prompt. Many thanks Danielle for all your efforts. We wouldn't go back to inferior high street agents again.
Mr & Mrs Frost saved £5925 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We really can't thank you enough, our house was sold in less than 6 months and the housenetwork team are truly the best. Our account manager Dean continually went above and beyond with his role and never gave any less than 110%. He was always there to give help and support, there would never be enough words to describe how thankful we are. The rightmove stats is excellent and a very useful way to boost your chances of selling. The photos were faultless. I did rather enjoy changing my property description and photos and believe this is a big key to finding a buyer! Choose housenetwork every time, you really can't go wrong :-)
Mrs Kerryanne Tonks & Mr Andrew Tonks saved £2400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I could not be more delighted with your service. My property was sold within 4 days and the service received from Housenetwork was excellent. I have already recommended you to two people. I would never use a high street Estate Agent again! Thank you so much Betty Rice?
Mrs Betty Rice saved £3475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great service that just works. Simple charging, fast turnaround on getting house on the market including Rightmove. Really easy to manage everything through the portal. Very efficient in arranging viewings and getting feedback. Ended with the right result - a sale!
Mr Paul Bryce saved £3712 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service well presented pictures and sold within a few weeks.
Mr Greg Coak saved £3225 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We had an excellent experience with House Network, I would recommend them to anyone selling a property. House Network advertise so widely that we had so much interest in our property as soon as we put it on the market. We found a buyer for our house within 2 months. All the staff and my account manager were extremely helpful and efficient.
Ruksana Khanam saved £3285 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have sold 2 houses recently on HN and they have provided us with exactly the service we want. The photos of our properties were superb quality (commented on by quite a few viewers), we could directly control which ones were on our listing and there were lots of them (unlike a standard High St listing) - ideal. Doing the viewings ourselves was a big plus too - the viewers can speak to the people that actually know the property and then HN chase them for honest online/telephone feedback which definitely helped us - it was not filtered through a number of different EA's, we read it direct and immediately on our members page as the viewers posted it. The HN website quickly becomes v easy to use, our HN agent was v knowledgeable. This is the future of Estate Agency in the UK - and at a price which actually reflects the work that is carried out. I would fully recommend using these guys, we would not go back to the High St!
Pete Mcallister saved £4252 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was going to sell my house myself to avoid the ridiculous charges I was quoted by high street estate agents. I found House Network when I was looking for ways to advertise my property on Right Move. I cannot recommend House Network highly enough. They have saved me nearly £3000 which would be reason enough to go with them. However they have also been faultless in all our dealings, and have been far better than any other estate agent I have dealt with, so if you are happy to show people round your home, you like knowing what is happening with the selling of your property and you like to be in control then House Network is the only estate agent for you. Jeffrey A Wilson MA PgD BA(Hons)
Mr Jeffrey Wilson saved £3375 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
£500 to sell our property with Housenetwork as opposed to £2500 with a high street agent and as our house was worth around £135000 they were asking for a large chunk of money for doing very little. For us that cost was a key inducement. We had many viewers - because the house was priced correctly - internet house selling works! We will use Housenetwork again.
Ms Chris Hardy saved £1950 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork.co.uk have been a gem of a find!! Having totally embraced the internet in order to sell my house (and save a fortune in the process!!) I have got nothing but good things to say about housenetwork.co.uk. What a brilliant experience, even the recommended solicitor was "online" so I was able to deal with things at work without having to take disruptive phone calls. Excellent work guys.... and I reckon I'm £2-3K better off having used you! Well done - great service - now I'm off to buy shoes with my savings! Shannon
Miss Shannon Pateman saved £4320 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
It is a great alternative to the traditional estate agents and much cheaper
Mr & Mrs Donovan saved £5250 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very impressed with the speed at which our house was marketed. We phoned on Thursday, a friendly man came around to take some great photos, floor plans & details on Monday. We opted for the fast track service, so our property appeared live on Tuesday Morning on all the main property sites. We received a call Wednesday morning to arrange a viewing for Friday then received another call on Thursday and Friday, both for viewings on Friday. Saturday morning we'd had 2 offers and exchanged contracts within 7 weeks of our initial contact with House Network. We would not hesitate to use them again, they saved us a lot of money!
Mrs Kerry Morgon-Shaw saved £1924 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you for your asistance in this sale, we found the service very good and would certainly recommend House network to anybody.
Mr Malcolm Flinders saved £2625 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I sold my property within a few weeks of it being on the market. The Housenetwork approach seems to be the future - why pay an estate agent several thousand pounds to achieve what Housenetwork can do for a few hundred? Overall, I was very impressed with the service provided by Housenetwork and will be using them again.
Mr Richard Martin saved £4125 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent sales team and ongoing support throughout the selling process.
Dr Andrew Goldstein saved £6450 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have been very pleased with House Network's service and would recommend to other sellers, especially if they have an attractive house which should sell without too much difficulty. The presentation of our house online was very professional, much better than many high street agents offer. Our sales rep was excellent, offering good and sound advice throughout the sale negotiations, much better service than I expected from an online agent. We made real savings by using House Network.
Mr Howard Davies saved £9075 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I am writing on behalf of my parents, who recently sold their house at via your company. They have asked me to inform you of their sincere gratitude at the quality, efficiency and value for money of your service. They are not technology/computer minded, although my father uses the computer for basic internet purchases, but not frequently for email. They both had reservations about using Housenetwork when I first informed them that this indeed was the 'modern' way to sell a property. With slight resistance, they agreed to 'try it'. To their surprise, they found that the ability to contact their sale manager by phone whenever they wished, and also that they were contacted by telephone and not forced into using email themselves together with the exceptionally high level of customer support they received far exceeded their expectations. They are however somewhat bemused. They cannot quite believe the quality of service they received compared to their 'long trusted' high street estate agent when it only costed about £500, compared to the £4000 they would have been charged. They almost feel that something must be wrong! Speaking to them today, they informed me that they would only ever now recommend Housenetwork to sell a property - 'on the internet' - an astonishing recommendation of your services I assure you.
Ian & Margaret Vinnell saved £4804 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very impressed with House Network. Incredibly available, I was doing an online chat at around 10pm regarding a potential viewing that turned out to be our buyer. The extra control you have with adding photos and amending the text is fantastic for those who like it just the way they like it, like me. If you have very busy lives and need to sort things out late at night this is a brilliant service. Realistic price that is fixed rate, based on the work rather than the tenuous percentage of the house sale. Despite the fact that we went for the option where we payed it all up front, which meant no extra money for the sale, the level of service was excellent. Would highly recommend them.
Marc Andrew Willson saved £4020 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We was recommended by a friend to try house network and it was the best decision that was made in the house selling process. House network took away all of the pressures when selling a house and we were extremely impressed at the speed that they operate. Every enquiry was instantly telephoned through and immediately backed up by an e mail. All appointments were made without any delays and if there were any changes to an appointment we were always contacted. Also feedback from any viewing was very prompt. The site is also excellent regarding the presentation. Very good pictures and very informative. Our purchasers were also impressed with the swift forwarding of offers and closing of the deal. We would certainly use House network again and highly recommend house network to anyone selling a property. Finally the price you pay for this excellent service is good value for money. Mr Kevin Walker.
Mr Kevin Walker saved £2595 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very pleased with the service that House Network provide. Would have no hesitation in using them again to save thousands of pounds. Will recommend to friends.
Hazel & Rob Sayles saved £2880 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
If you want to move house and don't want to waste money on traditional "local" estate agents, choose House Network: move on a budget, but with a great service.
Mr Paul Blythe saved £1958 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have used House Network twice in the last year to sell both mine and my partner's former properties. In both cases our account manager (Dan Brooks) was fantastic: professional, friendly and clear-headed - providing good advice and negotiation skills at every stage to help us get through the lengthy legal processes and one-sided demands of buyers! The customer service overall was exceptional we loved the flexibility of the online account and how much control you had as a vendor. Rightmove performance updates were also really useful. Arrangement and feedback from viewings was always very prompt and again it was useful where people had replied online to be able to see what they thought in their own words. Quality of marketing was very good and we liked being able to add our own photos and descriptions and deal with our viewings - as we knew the properties best! Value for money was fantastic, we bought the up-front package and whilst we put a lot of time and effort into the marketing and sales process too we felt we got a lot of support from House Network for this at a fraction of the price of traditional high street estate agents. Have already recommended House Network to lots of people and would speak very favourably to anyone who will listen! Although we have no plans to move again for a very long time, we would definitely use House Network again. Well done and keep up the good work - realistic pricing structure and excellent customer service - a refreshing change!
Kate Bearder saved £1874 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Can't believe the speed in which we sold our house using House Network, house went on the market on Monday and we accepted an offer on the Thursday. Amazing. I would have been really mad if i would have had to pay a high street estate agent there extortionate fees for 4 days work. The person who bought our house found it on a property search website! The pictures were just fantastic. Made our property look amazing. Thank you House Network for making our dreams come true, we are now emigrating the Australia!!
Nicola Carroll saved £1388 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network provided a fast, professional and efficient service. We saved more than eight thousand pounds by using their site and would certainly use them again.
Sue Davis saved £6562 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A very professional, efficient and up to the minute service. The photographs, virtual tour and description that were posted on the House Network site were exceptional. My property was listed at mid night on a Wednesday, two viewings were made on the Thursday for the following Saturday. The first couple to view purchased my house.
Mrs Margaret Ogwin saved £4125 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I highly recommend the House Network as the fastest and most cost effective way to sell your property fast. You sold our house for the full asking price in record time and the service was excellent. We also used House Network conveyancing for our sale and purchase and are very happy to recommend it. We particularly liked the way we could update photos and details of the property and track every step of the process online 24/7. A special thanks to Dan Brooks for his very helpful advice and support. Thank you
Mr Anthony Riches saved £3749 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was a little daunted at using a website at first, being a grandma of 4, but soon got my head around it and managed to update my photos and description pages after reading instructions. My account manager Danielle was always there to assist if I got stuck anyway. I expected to be speaking to lots of different account managers but always got Danielle, who was allocated to me from day one, which was nice. Whenever I needed an update and sent a request to Danielle it was acted upon immediately and received feedback either via a ticket or a phone call if urgent. We went from offer accepted to being ready to exchange in just 3 weeks!!!! I got the same level of service ( or maybe even more ) that my seller and buyer got from theirs but they paid a lot more money for the priveledge!! I was pushed into viewing some unsuitable properties by traditional estate agents but, because there is no commission at the end of the sale, I knew that Housenetwork would not do this to me
Mrs Lynn Hill saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would recommend Housenetwork to anyone, within 3 days of ordering my house was on Right Move with over 20 gorgeous pictures; as a result my house sold in just 3 weeks. Danielle was always friendly and helpful and I was 100% satisfied with the service that I got. Many Thanks
Mrs Shani Winfield saved £1275 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was a bit nervous about using House Network at first, but thought I would give it a go after my local Estate Agent wanted to charge me £8000 for selling my house! I paid £425 + VAT up front, and within a day, a photographer turned up and took fantastic photographs and did 'virtual tours' of each room. The day after that, my property was listed on rightmove.co.uk. I had to do the viewings myself, which is what you would expect for the price, but within three weeks, I had an offer of £430,000 - £30,000 more than my local Estate Agent valued the house at. So all in all, I walked away £37,500 better off by using House Network! The service was fantastic, the staff were knowledgeable and friendly and I have already recommended House Network to friends who are moving house. I can't see why anyone would consider paying a local agents fees when the House Network offers such a great service.
Anne Dickens saved £6450 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We chose Housenetwork purely in order to save money, which we did. We saved £4500 which was great. We also sold the house quickly, and for £20K more than the high-street agents had predicted. AND along the way Housenetwork provided a much better standard of customer service than we've ever had before from high-street agents. I'll never go back...
Dr Frank Radcliff & Sarah Ratcliff saved £6675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was initially rather cautious about the idea of using House Network but in fact it has been a very positive experience indeed. I found the whole process very professional and efficient. When looking for my purchase I experienced viewings with traditional agents who knew nothing about the property they were showing, so I was therefore keen to conduct the viewings of my own house. I also liked being able to write and edit the description of my house via the members area of the website. My agent, Dan Brooks, always answered tickets or calls promptly. My house was on the market the day after the (excellent) photos were taken and it was sold after only 3 viewings (twice over, we went to final bids) within two weeks for over the asking price. I paid for the House Network All-Inclusive Package up front and have saved thousands of pounds while getting a better service than offered by the conventional high street agents (who charge a 2% commission around here). I also used House Network Conveyancing for the legal side of my sale and purchase, and have been very pleased indeed with their service. My case handler Seema Shah was upbeat, speedy and very proactive and available to me by phone, email and text. As much as possible was done online in a well laid out and easy to use website. We exchanged contracts in just over 5 weeks from offer acceptance, despite the fact that there were 5 public holidays during that period. I would definitely recommend House Network, and use them again if I move (which I hope won't be for a while!).
Ms Alison Carter saved £6188 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I am more than happy with your service. This is the second time I have used your sales network. I would recommend you to anyone,
Mr Michael Kimber saved £2092 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We would highly recommend House Network to anyone thinking of marketing their property. This was our third move and we had been through just about every local estate agent there was, not finding one that seemed to do very much for the money they took when it came to completion. We decided to try an on-line estate agent and House Network seemed to be one that a lot of people where singing praises for. The team we dealt with were always professional, both in the way they dealt with us and our potential buyers. I was always able to get hold of somebody, either by phone or using the on-line chat service, and the team always responded quickly to any queries. We were pleased with the number of viewings we received as a result of the marketing done by House Network, plus we always got feedback, which we could view on-line. When we first looked in to putting our house on the market, on local agent quoted us £6000 in fees! We paid House Network £600 upfront and didn't pay another penny after that. To me there is no contest. Thank you to the team for all your hard work....not that I will be moving again any time soon, but if I do I will be coming back to you!
Miss Katie Evans saved £3075 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The photos of the house were excellent, and it made marketing very easy. Highly recommend.
Mr Chris Koller saved £2625 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you very much. Our house was sold very quickly with your company. Highly recommended. Will and would recommend you to our family and friends. Again thank you very much.
Mr Leslie Simon saved £2160 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I cannot recommend these guys highly enough. They provided a fantastic service. At all times we were made aware of what was going on and the whole process was transparent. Really, I cannot fault them. We saved ourselves about 12k in estate agent fees and housenetwork did a better job than the agents we have used in the past.
Mr & Mrs Pritchard saved £9675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
From the first meeting with the marketing consultant to handing over the keys to the new & happy buyers, the entire process took just over 6 weeks. It would have been quicker than that if local searches had not taken so long. I cannot fault the House Network experience in any way whatsover. Totally professional & with a huge saving compared to their conventional competitors. Fantastic images & narrative. Every potential buyer that visited (& there was loads of interest) said they were really impressed with the service. Thanks!
Martin Kitchin saved £4215 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We are thrilled we used House Network. The obvious cost saving is the biggest benefit - we saved £14k!!! - however the increased control and information we had throughout the sales process was also brilliant. I particularly enjoyed doing the houseviewings myself - I'm very confident I did a more personal and informative (and therefore more effective) job than any estate agent would have done.
Richard & Michele Swaine saved £10500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent photos of our property and well advertised. Lots of extra options if you need them, but we did very well with the basic package and had lots of viewings. Always kept up to date with phonecalls and emails during the arranging and feedback from viewers. Very pleased with the service and so much cheaper than a traditional high street agent.
Karen & Jason Conway saved £6750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Decided to use an online estate agent as my quote from a traditional agent was £7000. My house went up on the Thursday, I had my first viewing on the following Tuesday and sold on Wednesday. I may have been lucky but this is a very cheap and efficient way to get on Rightmove and the service throughout has been excellent.
Mr Peter Hatt saved £6150 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Superb, efficient service. Highly recommended.
Mr Craig McGorian saved £2700 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We decided to use House Network after visiting a property for sale through them, appreciating the efficient viewing arrangements and getting good feedback from the owner. Our own experience has been excellent, being particularly pleased with the way in which our house was presented on line, with some great photos, resulting in 2 offers within 3 weeks. We also used the in-house conveyancing service and received first class attention and support.
Mark & Judith Dudley saved £4875 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have been pleased with the service I have received and can only offer praise to the way I have been dealt with
Miss Theresa Hardy saved £4125 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We had a great experience using House Network and would recommend them to anyone. We had lots of viewings over a very difficult period for the market and were very pleased with the service we received.
Geoff Pryor saved £2355 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have been absolutely delighted with the service I have received from all the staff at housenetwork.co.uk Initially I had concerns about using an online agency rather than a conventional high street agent, but I could not have chosen a more professional company to successfully market and sell my property. Everything about the service has been efficient and incredibly straightforward, and I cannot recommend housenetwork.co.uk highly enough.

Sandra Whittaker saved £2955 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were so impressed with the service house network provided, very efficient and professional at all times. The house details, photos etc were second to none, and our house was sold within two weeks! The saving we made by not going to an traditional high street estate agents was huge and we can now put it towards improving our new home! Many thanks.
Mrs Jennifer Gomm saved £2160 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An excellent experience, sold to the first viewer and sale completed in record time. The service we received was outstading and we will certainly use Housenetwork again next time we sell. Well done to all the team. The best service we have ever had and this is the future of estate agency guys ! Lyn Soave BA(Hons) MNAEA
Marilyn Soave saved £2370 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The service I received form Housenetwork was extremely good. When I had queries they answered them without any problems, and if I called and couldn't get through they called me back to see if they could assist me. A very good service.
Terence Gunn saved £2220 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We tried House Network as a bit of an experiment - at those prices, what's to lose? We were thoroughly impressed by the service, and even more so when we had offers from three different buyers within two months (and it only took that long because it was over Christmas and New Year). One friend has already signed up with House Network on our recommendation, and someone even knocked on our door after seeing the sign to see if we would recommend them! It's definitely the future of house-selling.
Mr Matthew Wise saved £5692 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Traditional estate agents should be really worried by House Network! An excellent overall service provided at just over one tenth of the cost of local agents quote: (1.5% of sale price .....non-negotiable). Excellent pictures and coverage on right move backed up by an efficient service from office staff. I asked all viewers for their comments on HN service and all remarked that they had received quick and efficient service to viewing requests etc. In these difficult times you have saved us a considerable amount of money..... thanks to all for a good result! 100% recommended. Regards Simon and Sharon Firmin
Mr Simon Firmin saved £4125 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found Housenetwork a great service, it was an excellent company to use for the sale of our house, saving us alot of money when funds are already tight. The staff and website were excellent, their communication systems superb. I have absoloutly no complaints and would highly reccommend this company to anyone trying to sell their house.
Mrs Bridget Cusack saved £2655 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Superb photographs; excellent "ticketing" arrangement for hassle-free contact; cheerful eye-catching "For Sale" sign; all very easy - why pay more??
Ruth and Martin Sherwin saved £1980 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Friendly team, very helpful, best picture by far than any other estate agent. Best of all it saved me over £9000.00. I would highly recommend anyone to give them a try.
Mrs Mcgowan saved £6075 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We initially put our house on the market with a local estate agent. We weren't very impressed with their services and after 3 months we decided to try House Network. They were excellent - the photos were better than the previous estate agent, and within a few weeks we had sold our house. I liked having regular updates on the Rightmove click rates, and I liked being able to edit the description of my house to my liking. We saved approximately £5000 in estate agents fees, and I honestly don't think a local agent could have achieved a higher price for us, so it really was money in our pockets. We would defintely recommend House Network to friends and family.
Mrs Joanna Hackett saved £5025 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would highly recommend House Network. Efficient and professional. Have used you before and if we move again, would not hesitate to book this company. Saved a lot of money compared to other agents.
Mrs Ryder saved £5062 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We saved ourselves a lot of money and felt we had no lesser service than from estate agents we had used in previous sales. In fact, the computerised system allowed a lot of flexibility and control and it was great to be able to monitor the hit rates that our house was achieving. The bottom line is that we have sold and the 2 properties quite close to ours are still up for sale with local agents! Housenetwork did exactly what it said on the tin. I would certainly use them again.
Mr Alistair Simms saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Ive found Housenetwork so easy, all your information is updated regularly so you can manage your property process. I have already recommended to a friend who is now in the process of selling her home. I have made a saving of over £3500 and my friend has saved over £4500.
Miss Karen Tamplin saved £3134 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A fantastic service. I felt completely in charge of the marketing of my property - being able to switch off marketing when on holiday was great. As was the chance to change details and prices at the touch of a button. Using Housenetwork saved us £3,500 in estate agents fees. I was a little worried that paying upfront might mean I didn't get the same level of service but I couldn't have been more wrong. Emails and phone calls were answered very quickly. Selling my house through Housenetwork was quick and pain free. I'd recommend it to anyone. In fact, I have been doing!
Mrs Karen Wallace saved £2640 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you House Network, an excellent, efficient and cost effective way to sell property. I believe that it was the high quality photo's and excellent layout of the web adverts that made it possible for us to effect a quick sale. Our buyer found us from over 100 miles away and both he and our other many viewers commented on the picture quantity and quality compared to most local agents. Our sale would have been even quicker if our buyer had not been snowed in on his original viewing date. Robert and other members of your team provided us with up to date feed back, unlike local agents we have used in the past. We also liked the feed back from our viewers being available so quickly. With local agents it seems like the "blind leading the blind" at least we could give our viewers accurate and complete information By using your on line conveyancing service we saved both time and money as you handled both the sale and the purchase of our new home with friendly and efficient staff, again we were updated within hours on all facets of the sale and purchase. Despite my lack of computing skills, your staff, made it very easy for me to cope and I have a full record on my computer. We would wholeheartedly recommend your service to everyone, although not ourselves wishing to move ever again.
Mr Gethin Jones saved £2205 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The whole process was extremely straight forward and the site easy to use. Information was immediate and everyone I spoke to was helpful and efficient. A very painless way to sell!
Ms Rosie Ballantyne-Smith saved £2100 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I cannot praise Housenetwork highly enough. We sold our property in less than a week! with our prospective buyers seeing and making an appointment to view in SIX hours after our house had gone live. The buyers also told us that because the photographs of the house were so good - they did not need a second viewing. I highly recommend Housenetwork - they are efficient - polite and professional. We wish them all the success they deserve and would without doubt use them again.
Mrs Ann Newstead saved £2130 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Using house network saved me a fortune in estate agent fees, on line estate agent work well for me, feedback and data produced was very useful and i didn't line the pockets of high street estate agent, leaves me with a good feeling
Chris Meakin saved £2175 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We had a very positive experience using House Network to sell our property. The staff were very helpful and kept us informed every step of the way. The service was very prompt and efficient and the whole experience was very professionally handled by House Nework staff including the Conveyancing Service. Following the sale of the property the cheque for the balance following the sale of the property was received by us just two working days following completion. This is excellent in our opinion, having experienced much longer delays by Solicitors we have used in the past following previous property sales. Prior to contacting House Network we sought the services of local Estate Agents and were very disappointed with the information they gave use paticularly their reluctance to committ to a firm price for their services to sell our property. We will definately recommend House Network to friends and family and would use House Network again if we need to sell a property in the future. Thank you all very much at House Network.
Mr & Mrs Rutherford saved £3210 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network, and Dan especially, made selling a house infinitely less stressful. I found all of the staff dedicated, persistent and professional at all times. I have just completed my sale within six months of marketing (despite two buyers letting me down...third time lucky!) and all at a fraction of the price offered by a local agent.
Mr Stokes saved £1192 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
After being completely un-satisfied with the High Street Estate Agent we started with we were really pleased we decided to use Housenetwork as we saved money and the team were professional, efficient and completely earnt their money!
Miss Katherine Wright saved £1735 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network have been excellent and saved us thousands of pounds. All viewings were followed up and feedback obtained. House Network follow the sale every step of the way through to completion. I have no hesitation in recommending House Network to anyone.
Mr Matthew Bradley saved £2925 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Having been very disillusioned by the overpriced estate agents we have experienced we decided to use Housenetwork following recommendations from friends. What an ingenius idea!! The service was ten out of ten we really cpouldnt have asked for more on what was a very streessful time. Having signed up online on Thursday we met the rep for our home visit on the Saturday! Our property was on Rightmove on Tuesday and we sold a week later! Every contact whether it was by phone, email or by raising a ticket was dealt with exceptionaly quickly - the service was first class. Thank you fror all your efforts - we are very happy customers!
Mr and Mrs Douglas Gilchrist saved £2190 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Dear House Network,
The dust has settled on our move and so reviewing and reflecting on the people and services we used.
I can honestly say it was a complete pleasure to do business with the HouseNetwok company. We were impressed from the beggining to the end with professionalism and slickness of the whole operation, from everyone at the company. A big thank you to Rob and Daniel who dealt with our account.
Every aspect concerning our house sale through yourselves was impressive. The web page, well taken photos and even a virtual tour (extra with other companies!), colourful and modern looking sales-board, your viewing arangement staff politeness and efficiency, the confirming email and auto reminders (with persons details) and afterwards the follow up contact and feedback....and then the weekly stats email to let us know how things were going. I personally liked showing people around my house, so no loss there....a complete package that sold our house (and at a very reasonable cost!), thank you.
I have absolutely no hesitation what-so-ever in highly recommending your services.
The experience and cost is exactly what house selling should be and hopefully more people will realise this. More power to you and other e-Estate agents...watchout the traditional, over-priced, poor service, 'high-street', estate agents...the writing's on the wall!!
Mark Shelley saved £2775 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great service - will recommend to friends.
Mrs Tracy Wood saved £2332 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I'd like to thank, firstly Danielle, whose patience throughout the sale was extremely professional. I'd also like to thank the whole team involved in my sale. As for a testimonial..... In these tough times House Network are like a ray of light in the darkness. Their sales pitch online is colourful, rich and vibrant and made my property look a like a million dollars (ok, £154k). At all times the team were professional, helpful and above all cheerful. I can't thank them enough and would recommend them to anyone selling their home. Perfectly priced using professional people to get my property sold. Thanks Matt B (now of Oxfordshire)
Mr Matthew Barley saved £2310 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Although my sale took longer due to the recession, I have nothing but praise for all the housenetwork team, who were always most courteous and helpful.I always felt that using h/network was the best decision I made which incidentally also saved me a great deal of money. Many thanks to the whole team.
Mr Alec Cass saved £1928 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank You House Network, cannot recommend your service highly enough, 'head and shoulders' above all our locally available (archaic) Estate Agents, and saved us over £3000! I will champion you from the roof tops!
Mr Stuart & Mrs Jane Billany saved £3375 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We received a professional and efficient service from HouseNetwork. They were very good at organising viewings and giving us feedback on a regular basis. Being able to see our viewing statistics and comparing to the average number was an excellent tool and gave us real insight into the activity created from the team. We were very pleased with the property details and photos which were taken too. We were recommended by friends of ours and after initially being a little hesitant as we had only ever used traditional estate agents, decided to give HouseNetwork a chance. We were overall extremely pleased with how the whole process went and saved ourselves approx. £3-4000 in traditional estate agents fees!! I believe that most people search the internet when looking to buy a home these days and therefore the need for the 'personal touch' has somewhat diminished. If you have a decent property in a decent area, I'd give it a go any day of the week! Many thanks HouseNetwork.
Mr and Mrs de Kloe saved £4335 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We assumed it would take much longer to sell via an internet only agent but we weren't in a rush so we thought we would give it a go. Immedaiately we had 10 viewings within the first week and we soon had an offer. We found selling our home through house network easy. All the staff were very proffessional and Gemma was great. We made a fantastic saving, your no frills extreamly efficient service allowed us to make a fantastic saving. We have already reccomended your service to a friend who sold within 2 weeks and would definately sell through housenetwork again. Thanks once again, Kind regards, Shona
Miss Shona Potter saved £3345 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
All round good effort leading to a smooth sale. I would use you again and have recommneded you to 2 friends.
Mr Craig Beech c/o Mark Hill saved £8249 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The best internet photos and very easy to manage account on line, much better than having to through normal estate agents, very very good value for money, would and have recommended to family and friends thank you
Mr & Mrs Holmes saved £3398 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
What value for money! The beautiful photos, the excellent website display page, and the highly efficient yet unobtrusive service all helped to sell my home at a fraction of the cost on the high street. Many thanks to House Network - I fully expect increasing numbers of sellers to turn to you in future.
Ms Kay Louise Norton saved £5250 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We opted for House Network after realising it would cost us around £4.5k to sell our home through a high street estate agent. In view of the fact we wanted to conduct the viewings ourselves, it seemed crazy to pay that sort of money when we knew we could get coverage on all of the main property portals through House Network. I don't think we ever got the volume of viewings you might expect from a high street estate agent, but that suited us fine because the thing about HN viewers is that they are motivated to come and see your property - viewers who come through the traditional route are often 'persuaded' to view a house that doesn't really suit them, and for us, that means a huge waste of time and energy in presenting the house for a viewing. Everyone who viewed our house loved it, and it sold to the second people who came. Viewers were always bang on time, too. House Network might not be a tradtional high street estate agent, but the service we received was exactly the same as I'd have expected. Dan Brooks was professional and capable and always up-to-date on events. Our viewings were arranged promptly and we had feedback from viewers that HN had been very good to deal with on the telephone. We particularly liked the viewing feedback form because this provided direct feedback rather than 'word of mouth'. I cannot recommend HN highly enough - I have recommended them to several friends who are considering a move and one has already listed with you, despite their doubts. Keep up the excellent work - I look forward to seeing your business grow and grow.
Sarah Brady saved £4875 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Having never used an on line estate agent previously we very pleased with the ease & efficiency to tap into your network. We had had no previous success with local agents and you were our "last resort". If you hadn't sold our property we would have taken it off the market and failed in our attempt to move to pastures new. All the staff we spoke with were very helpful & professional. Daniel made things quite clear when we came to the point of an offer etc as we hadn't done this for 10 years it was all a bit of a blur ! He was very calming and took time to explain the next processes very clearly. He recommended House Network Conveyancing which have also proved to be very helpful and professional. We are absolutely over the moon and cannot thank you enough for helping us move to our new home !!!
Mr & Mrs Darbyshire saved £2370 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Amazing service. This is what an estate agent should be. And no big fees.
Mr Nolan saved £3975 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Although it took a few weeks for us to get our first viewing, the quality of viewings was high once the viewings started and we recieved an offer very quickly. Housenetwork were very good at acting quickly to return phone calls and act on requests for updates, and altogether helpful and polite to deal with.
Mrs Eleanor Spence saved £2670 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We used two of the more conventional type estate agents prior to finally using HouseNetwork to solely market our property. In our experience HouseNetwork are considerably more professional that any other estate agents we have used. At every stage of the selling process they were very organised, always got back to us quickly to answer any questions, arranged viewings (whilst keeping the potential buyer on the phone which made arranging them very quick and simple) and followed the viewings up to provide us with feedback very efficiently as well. I cannot recommend HouseNetwork enough. I think the days of the High Street Estate agent are numbered. I only wish i had used HouseNetwork for our conveyancing as well! Thank you for a great service
Lee Allen saved £2925 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
So glad I chose you. There was no disadvantage to using an internet estate agent as my house was the only house to sell in the village over the past few months. As long as you are happy to show people round, which we preferred anyway it makes more sense. The service was efficient and very responsive, always ringing back promptly and chasing buyers if necessary. Thank you.
Margaret Kingsford saved £2782 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We needed to sell 2 houses at the same time which would have cost at least £7,000 in total through traditional estate agents, HouseNetwork did a far superior job for a fraction of the price. Despite the scaremongering from the traditional agents about post sales service, we have been impressed every step of the way. I received an offer on my property within 3 days of marketing, and ended up with another 2 offers on the table. Superior & more photographs than the usual, excellent floor plans & virtual tours, prompt service & calls always answered, systematic follow ups on potential buyers, more communication than we've ever experienced through estate agents and a full service right through to completion. We'd have no hesitation recommending HouseNetwork and will never use an traditional agent again! Thank you all so very much for making a stressful time just a little easier.
Mr Mark Waddy saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have been very impressed with the overall efficiency and adminisrative competence of House Network. Questions have always been answered quickly and effectively and staff have have always been polite, knowledgeable and prompt at sorting out any queries or problems.
Mr & Mrs Andrews saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great service and very helpful staff - sold twice with housenetwork - excellent service.
Mr Andrew & Mrs Valerie Burgess saved £2475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent, well worth the fee and would recommend to anyone.
Jackie Manion saved £2190 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We are more than happy to recommend Housenetwork and have already to lots of people. We were a bit nervous about using an on line EA but so glad we did. HN are prompt, helpful and have saved us thousands of pounds. Thanks for making the selling part of our house move stress free. We will be using you again in the future.
Laurie Millar & James Davey saved £3675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very impressed with quick response to any concerns during the process, have already recommended someone to sell their property
Goodall Developments Ltd c/o Diane Goodall saved £1582 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We saved over £13,000 on high street estate agents fees by selling through Housenetwork. After 12 weeks of mediocre high street agents activity where our property was very poorly described and photographed for their web page we decided to try Housenetwork. The set up process was swift, the photographs were excellent and we were able to edit the descriptions of our property to enhance its attractiveness and marketability. After six weeks of marketing Housenetwork introduced a potential buyer that was in a position to proceed. After a further six weeks we exchanged contracts. Housenetwork is an extremely cost effect and professional service company that I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone. Using this process you retain control of selling your most valuable personal asset. Remember that all high street agents will offer a selection of potential properties to each prospective buyer that contacts them. They can only sell one property to each prospective buyer and in order to secure their commission they really don't care which property they sell, there is no loyalty to you. High street agents don't sell your property they merely offer a selection of properties to buyers from which they can view, compare and maybe choose one. Housenetwork only offer your property to any one viewer at each time of making appointments due to the nature of the viewing process. Your property, therefore, is seen to be more distinctive.
Mr Roger Handley saved £10875 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Absolutely amazing service, I used both the House Network for selling and conveyencing and everything worked perfectly and in very good time. Why would you want to use any other service when you have so much more control and information at your fingertips through the websites and at a fraction of the cost of a general Estate Agent.
Mr Ralph Timberlake saved £3375 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was totally happy with all aspects of the service. I have bought and sold a number of houses in my time and have often wondered what the estate agent was actually doing for their very high fee. Housenetwork is different. They charge a fraction of the fee, are friendly and efficient (Gemma Simmons is a star!!) return calls, provide useful feedback and almost all my viewers found it easy to book appointments and deal with enquiries. You obviously have to show people around your house yourself, but I have generally done this even when using a traditional estate agent as they don't take the time to get to know your house anyway. I have already recommended Housenetwork to friends and family and will continue to do so. Thanks guys:)
Ms Corrieane Blades saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was initially sceptical about an online-only estate agent, but I was quickly impressed not only by the great response I got to my house sale but also the excellent way the Housenetwork staff dealt with the enquiries. I had lots of viewings, and sold the house much quicker than I expected. The no-commission deal was great value for money, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Housenetwork to anyone.
Mr Simon Townsend saved £2280 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
It has been an absolute delight to deal with Housenetwork from start to finish. They do everything and more that a High Street agent offers with the exception of viewings which, to be fair, we would prefer to do ourselves as we know the honest answer to viewer's questions and can answer them immediately rather than have an agent say he doesn't know or perhaps even make up an answer! On this point, all of our viewers have preferred the experience also and have commented that they don't feel under pressure to leave as the agent is rushing to get to his next appointment. A definite plus is the number of high quality photographs and Virtual Tours compared to a High Street agent. Some viewers have been from "out of area" and yet they already have a very good idea of what they are coming to see. We have received feedback after every viewing and have instant on-line statistics of the number of viewings compared to the average for the type and location of the property. This definitely helps to know if you are on the "right track" regarding the price asked. Although a basic framework description is provided, we found the ability to edit this and elaborate with an unlimited amount of words was fantastic. And the best bit? One up-front fee which in our case was less than 12.5% of what we would have paid a High Street agent. A huge saving and, in our view, a much better service. Even after a "false start" with a buyer pulling out (due to reasons beyond his control) we were able to re-market the property at the touch of a button and with no extra fees involved. We were also throughout the operation able to edit the wording, photographs, price etc. as and when we wished. Would we ever use a High Street agent again? We think not!
Mr Anthony J. & Mrs Avril J. Wood saved £3420 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very efficient and helpful. I was kept up to date on a regular basis and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend House Network to anyone wishing to move house. And it was VERY inexpensive compared to High Street Estate Agents. Thank you very much.
Mrs Lynda Roe saved £5625 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House network far exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I was selling a flat in a diffucult market due to the economic climate. House network throughout have been extremely competent . The sheer level of marketing was very much higher than I expected and the very pro active approach ensured that I sold my flat. My agent Gemma's patience and empthay has no bounds and this is also true of every single member of staff I spoke to. All viewings were confirmed by telephone, email and followed up. Nothing was ever too much trouble and as a result I am thrilled with the service on every single level from Daniel's photos to support I have received. The photos were very professional and showed the flat off to its best. As a result, I had huge interest in the flat from viewers and it sold.. As a result I recommend House network to anyone and everyone . I would never use any other company. Thank you Gemma for everything , your patience, kindness and support.
Sarah Bird saved £5550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Overall a highly positive experience, especially the photos and the site. I saved at least £5000 compared to a high street agent, and I would definitely use House Network again in a similar situation. High street agents do offer some benefits, in terms of a more personal service and the time commitment to chase solicitors after an offer has been accepted. However, on the crucial question of achieving a sale at the best price, I'm not convinced in a lot of cases they could do any better than the House Network, and in some cases they're demonstrably worse. At a price of only £400, I wouldn't look at another internet agent after using House Network, and have already recommended you to others.
Mr Jon Clayton saved £7500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was happy with the service I received and would use House Network again and be happy to recommend your service to others. The website is clear and explains what you offer very well. The 'no frills' service was exactly what I was looking for and I was happy to save money as a result.
Miss Catherine Edwards saved £2422 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was extremely pleased with Housenetwork. The service is excellent and the price is unmatchable by other estate agents. My house was sold within a week and communications were excellent.
Mrs Nonie Mullally saved £13500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Much better than using a high street estate agent. I saved a lot of money and received a much better service. I would reccommend using house Network to anyone considering selling their property. Thank you kindly Chris
Mr Chris Ackroyd saved £3150 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The web page looked fantastic - very professional with loads of photos. The viewings were well managed and getting feedback afterwards from viewers was good. The fee was the thing that won us over - very good value compared to traditional high street agents. The main thing about selling and buying these days is to make sure your property is on all the main property websites, and with House Network it is. We had our first phone call requesting a viewing about half an hour after our web page went live!
Alison Mitchell-Wilson saved £4560 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An excellent efficient service. The photos and virtual tours were fantastic and there were so many. The quality of the photos alone were worth the fee we paid. What value for money! Highly recommended. We also used House Network Conveyancing and they also provided an excellent and efficient service.
Mrs Noreen Lynch saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Everyone, especially our account manager was really helpful & approachable. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family & friends. Conventional estate agents are a thing of the past for us - well done!!
Mrs Barbara Lawrence saved £3712 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network run a very smooth operation. Photographs were taken, plans drawn, and a description was written and all posted on the website in a very short time. The second person to view my property made an offer which we accepted. Now we have exchanged contracts and we will be moving into our new house in about two weeks. Thank you House Network for making selling and buying very easy and at a low price.
Mr Alan & Mrs Rowena Swaine saved £2745 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network has been absolutely fantastic. Tom Audley our agent/conveyancer/solicitor has always kept us up to date with everything and always there to answer our endless questions. From the beginning it was a painless process, we were able to put up our own photos without any problem. We have used House network as and estate agent and as the solicitors in the selling of our property and the buying our new property. All the negotiations were done through them with the clients, we liked to be involved with the client as well but that purely optional as House network do everything but show people round your house. I have talked to everyone who is considering buying a house to go to House Network this is definatly the future in house buying/selling. Couldnt reccomend them enough
Shauna Wyldeck-Estrada saved £7425 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We put our house on the market on the Sat 4th Sept. The photographer came round the day before and took some excellent shots, over 30 of them. Our website was created within 24 hours and we had a viewer by the Monday. The whole experience was great. HN called us to arrange a viewing that was good for us as we both work. As it turned out that viewer put an offer in a week later which we have accepted, we couldnt believe we sold our home in a week!! HN were great through out the whole process. If we called them and they werent there, they got back to us within 10 mins and dealt with our query straight away. We are very happy and impresseD with the whole experience and would not hesitate to use them again. Not only did they save us alot of money, but they were better and more efficient than any high street estate agent I have used. Thanks HN.
Ian Fench & Natasha Smithers saved £3525 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were really pleased with the efficiency and professionalism of everyone that we dealt with from housenetwork - especially the photographer who did a fantastic job on our house and Rob Bacon who was always prompt and efficient in responding to any enquiries. In fact, we have already recommended housenetwork to a friend who is selling thier property in the area. Jane Hurst
Mr Michael Hurst saved £8025 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An excellent and efficient service. From first contact to appearance on the web took less than a week. We had a first viewing on the same day and then a firm offer within 48 hours of going live. The pictures of each room and virtual tours were far more impressive than those seen on most Estate Agent Sites.
Clive Vaus saved £9555 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An excellent level of service from start to finish. We found the team at Housenetwork to be relaible, courteous and professional. We can also recommend the conveyancing team who handled the legal side of our move very efficiently. To top it all, we saved ourselves several thousand pounds in commission!
Dr Lawrence King & Mrs Tracey Levy-King saved £3630 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
My first impression of housenetwork was how efficient the service is - once instructed, the surveyor was at our house bang on time and completed his work without fuss. However, I was amazed at the level of presentation of our house on the website - no other estate agent came close, even among the "big names"! The efficiency of the system to book viewings was also outstanding - a call would come, we agreed a time and it was confirmed literally in seconds. We have previously had a property on the market and frankly I was upset at the way the agent would come in with a viewer, and my wife and I were pretty much ignored - with housenetwork we met each prospective purchaser, could chat to them and tell them a bit about us and the house, and then leave them to it. I felt more comfortable meeting the viewers personally. Some of the agents who had come previously actually had no idea about the house and its features. Oh, and the feedback system is great. And of course we've saved a fortune! (I reckon around £9000!) People we know who have sold houses were staggered when we compared costs of selling. I don't hesitate to tell anyone thinking of selling to get straight on to your website. Thank you!
Michael & Jean Harvey saved £4162 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very friendly professional service that took all the stress out of selling a home. The sales and conveyancing staff were all very efficient and we felt totally updated at each point of the sale. A huge saving but with very good service, would definately recommend.
Daniel & Angela Cox saved £3405 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Easy to use and generated many viewings = quickly sold
Ian James Grayson saved £3749 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We originally felt it was a bit of a gamble choosing an online agent in a recession but we are so glad that we took the risk! We had initial valuations done by local, high street based agents and we were not very impressed with them. The major advantage of a high street agent is that they know the local market inside out and can get people who are on their mailing lists, through the door. But, many of our friends went with local agents and did not find this to be the case. We have been particularly impressed with the photographs on the website which are absolutely crucial for a good presence on Rightmove and Prime Location, for instance. And it was wonderful to be able to adapt and edit the written information ourselves and to change the main photos which helped to keep the property looking fresh online. In our case, it has been a real advantage to carry out the viewings ourselves. We have knowledge of the local area and its facilities and we can talk about the neighbours and the intricacies of our own home. We were also able to manage the viewings to our advantage, sometimes lining them up one after the other which created a 'buzz'. We still can't believe how much money we have saved by using Housenetwork! However, as a vendor, you've got to do your research and be very realistic about the value of your house, you've got to be a good communicator when you're doing the viewings . You have got to present the property to its absolute best advantage. Leave nothing to chance and make sure it is immaculate! If the house is priced wrongly and if it isn't in good repair and in a clean condition, it won't sell whoever your agent is. And you have to be flexible and available for viewings. It has certainly paid off in our case. I would also recommend having a 'For Sale' sign up because I can cite at least one viewing that came about because of the sign. It's your only way of having a local presence so it's best to take advantage of it. You don't know who is driving around in your area and might be inspired! Our phonecalls and emails have been dealt with swiftly and professionally by Housenetwork and we feel we've had a very good service. Great value and much appreciated! We have already recommended Housenetwork to our friends and family and would use them again!
Mrs Victoria Pottruff saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
You are still the country's best kept secret, very simple process, excellent feedback, I just can't believe you not being seen more in our area. We have no hestitaion in making sure people try you first. Your service is way beyond any of our local estate agents, plus we have saved over £1500. Many thanks
Mr Philip Carter saved £4125 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We would recommend Housenetwork to anyone. As soon as we decided to put the house on the market, Daniel Brooks came out very quickly and took some excellent photos and virtual tours and also good floor plans, much better than local estate agents. Everything about Housenetwork was very professional. When we had viewings, they were always confirmed with an email and callbacks were always chased. The site was very easy to use and could be updated with new information and photographs very quickly and easily. We also went with Housenetwork Conveyancing, as the price was very competitive and a very good service. A big thankyou to all concerned at Housenetwork in helping us to sell our house, we have now exchanged and completed our sale and have saved a lot of money in Estate Agent fees.
Mr & Mrs Cheers saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We found your service fast, easy to use and efficient. From first contact our questions have been answered quickly. A very positive experience.
Mr Edward Dickinson saved £5962 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Saved me a fortune!
Philip & Geraldine Whitney saved £10800 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
An excellent way to sell a property without the high costs of a traditional agent. We sold within a short timescale and this was helped by the excellent graphics. A fast friendly service would definately use them again.
Mr Andrew & Mrs Jennifer Farman saved £3675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great Job, very professional. Its the best estate agent I have ever used, don't be fooled into thinking you will get a better service from a high street agent, the internet site and constant feedback from the personal at house network is far better than any agent I have used. Well done and thank you to you all.
Mrs Sylvia Lazell saved £2955 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork gave a first class service, great marketing and were extremely helpful at a fraction of the cost of an estate agent. I would not hesitate to recommend them. Thank you for your professional service.
Miss Suzanne Farris saved £7050 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
When our house finally sold your service was great, we were fully informed on each and every aspect of the process. You were always availiable to answere any questions and help us through the minefield that is selling a home. thanks
Mrs Lynn Verity & Mr Michael Tolson saved £4395 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Before we signed up to use Housenetwork I had done my homework on internet estate agents obviously not knowing much about how they work but keen to learn more. Your website was excellent - easy to use and understand. I had no doubt about instructing you to sell our house, feeling it was going to be easy - and it has been with thanks to the website and your excellent staff. We sold our house in 5 weeks at a time when others around us had been on the market for months. The marketing of our property was excellent - I particularly liked the way that we could choose the photos to use (the photos by the way are far superior to a lot of other large traditional agents) and had input into the descriptions. I have no doubts about recommending your services to others and have in fact done so already. A particular thankyou to Robert Bacon who was professional and responded to our queries speedily and clearly in what can be a very complicated process. Thank you Mrs Cate Crowe.
Mr & Mrs M Crowe saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would thoroughly recommend Housenetwork. Within days of our instruction, they came to take photographs, produced a HIP for us and our house was on the market. It was great to have our own web area where we could upload extra photographs, make changes to our details and have control over which photographs we wanted on display. I am not aware of any local agents providing anything like this. Viewings were arranged with great efficiency and when offers came in, they were dealt with in a professional way. Even though we paid the fee upfront, after we had accepted an offer on the house, our personal agent Gemma continued to chase things up for us to ensure the sale went ahead smoothly. What an excellent service and for a fraction of the cost we would have paid with a local agent!
Helene Iaccarino saved £4275 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I came across HouseNetwork when I was looking to buy a property on Rightmove. When I saw the prices, I decided to give them a go, especially after my disdain for high-street agencies. From the first day, I felt in control of my property sale. No pressures to sell, no bogus visits from colleagues of the agency (yes, this happened a lot to us previously) and also, HN didn't claim to be clairvoyants capable of predicting the housing market! HN were always professional, direct and assisted both professionally and efficiently on all matters. Let along the competitive price, they deliver exceptional value and I would highly recommend them to anyone. My account manager, Daniel, was a pleasure to deal with Thanks for making this a smooth and seamless process. A true example of how an estate agency should be run
Mr Mehul Raja saved £5624 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Setting up our property on the web was very punctual; the marketing material, sales brochure and photos were absolutely first class. Staff were always friendly and professional. The overall cost of your services was very very good value for money.
Mrs Jennifer Mosedale saved £2325 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have been absolutely delighted with every aspect of the service received from HouseNetwork and which has significantly contributed to the successful sale of our home. EVERY ASPECT from initial enquiry, agent visit, preparation of plans, professional property photographs etc through to booking of viewings, feedback follow up and sale negotiation has been undetaken to the highest standards. We even checked with all our viewers on the level of professional care they had experienced from HouseNetwork to their enquiries and requests for viewings - without exception they were all full of praise for the friendly, efficient service they received. In addition, although we opted for the all inclusive package for an one off up front fee and package with no fee due on sale to HouseNetwork, the level of service never changed and was consistently excellent throughout. Special thanks to Gemma and also Daniel Brooks who prepared our details, Toni, Rob and in fact everyone we spoke to at the call centre from start to finish of our successful sale campaign over the last 5 months. I would also like to highlight how useful the regular property performance and market reports are - clear, unbiased, hard facts about how your property is doing and where the market is going. If your serious about selling - these will tell you the honest truth without flannel, fuss and no self interest. We saved between £7,000 - £10,000 using HouseNetwork instead of using any one of the "premier" long established, local estate agents who operate locally. MORE IMPORTANTLY, I know that we received excellent service throughout and for a very fair fee - neither of which the local estate agents deliver!
Mr Kyran Mallon saved £6375 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Fantastic service received from Housenetwork, any changes to my webpage/sale site were implemented straight away. They even allow you to upload your own photographs. I also used their conveyancing service which I found very competitive and very efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend/use them again in the future. I would like to thank Robert Bacon and Rosemary Daly for an excellent service provided.
Miss NICOLA GEE-CLOUGH saved £2385 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
After having a really bad service from a well established estate agent!!! We found housenetwork to be much more helpful, friendly and responsive. We saved around £3000 and were in much more control of our sale and were updated very regulary!!! Highly recommended and would definately use again.
Miss kimberley walton saved £2055 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
"Great service all round plus we saved £4500 on Estate Agents fees."
Mr Neil Stockdale saved £4500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found the system and the service to be intuitive and simple to use. Its the only way to sell your home in the age of the internet. My place sold within weeks even in a difficult market. Thankyou.
Mr Kevin Cross saved £1875 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you for an excellent service in such challenging times of selling properties , we found house network very efficient when it came to booking viewings and subsequent follow ups .
Philip Carline & Scott Wagstaff saved £3525 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very pleased with using House Network to sell our property. Even though we went with a local estate agent also, any real offers only came through viewers coming via house network.
Mrs K Vora saved £4200 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The staff members were effiicient and friendly and the whole procees ran very smoothly. We also saved something in the order of £4,000 in Estate Agent's fees!
Stephen Bartlett saved £4800 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have been very happy with your service and would recommed you to our friends. Many thanks for all your help and hard work.
Mrs Sharon Jennings saved £4950 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork is the cheapest and most effective way I found to market my property. In this downturn market I didnt want to sell my property at a lower market value and give the chunk of it to eastate agents, so found their fixed rates very convenient. The person who came over to take the photos of the property was very professional and I liked the results on their website the following day!! It was amazing. There was a lot of correspondence I had with them during the sale and I found them ready to help. My house however took a while to sell which was no fault of theirs, but the current market condition. The only downside of it is you have to be avialable to do the viewing yourself. I will reccommend their services to anyone. Thank you Housenetwork.
Miss Efua FYNN saved £2250 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Simple, easy and in all honesty it was a much easier process to handle as no estate agents were deeply involved. With this service and costing structure the local agents have a thing or two to worry about.
Michael Clements saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We wouldn't have done it any other way!
Mr Antony Bacon & Mrs Tina Bernice Bacon saved £4350 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Not having moved house for 42 yrs and not owning a computer (go to cafe/library) I can strongly recommend the prompt, efficient service from the team. In my case the dual email/tel method of communication was especially useful. Well done and very good value.
John Withington saved £9412 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This was a leap into the unknown for us. Having invited local estate agents to value our home and outline the services they offered we were not very happy and decided we had nothing to lose by trying to sell on the net. We sold within 5 days and had very positive feedback on the service provided to prospective purchasers by house network. The quality of information and pictures was excellent - some of our local agents do not even provide floor plans. The other obvious advantage is the money saved. We saved nearly £3,000 on estate agents fees and had a much better service. Furthermore because we could market our house for what we considered it was worth we achieved about 12% more than the highest estate agent estimate. This has made a considerable difference to the house we are now able to purchase. In short, we are telling everyone not to use local estate agents but to use house network. It is rare indeed for us these days to be so enthusiastic about the level of service and value of money offered by any company so this is praise indeed!
Mrs Elaine Malcolm saved £3975 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We cannot praise House network (and their conveyancing) enough. From the word go they made us feel confident, and sure enough within 6 weeks of going to market we sold our property. We have friends with a similar property for sale in the same area who have gone down the conventional high street estate agent route and they are still waiting for their first offer. I have told everyone and would advise anyone reading this to give it a go. Apart from the fact that we sold pretty quickly we saved somewhere in the region of £5500 (incl conveyancing). Basically you don't have much to lose in the grand scheme of things and a hell of a lot to gain. You will always get through to speak to someone if you need to and they dealt with everything promptly and efficiently. Reading this back it looks like and advert but honestly, they were that good. We are using house network conveyancing for the purchase of our new home too.
Mrs Zoe Birnstingl Wyzgowska saved £4500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We've just sold our house through House Network for £395 + VAT. It would have cost £2430 through any of the 3 estate agents who gave us a quote. The service levels were really good all the way through (thanks Gemma!). You have to do the viewings yourself and we had initially worried that would be difficult to fit in around work and a 1hr commute, but booking in the viewings for evenings and weekends was never a problem (that's when people usually want to see houses anyway and estate agents often refuse to, so I think that's a better solution all round). The photos and 180 degree pan arounds they did were amazing quality (way better than the blurry ones their competitors did) and we got about 20 shots and 4 pans (every room that it was worthwhile doing and they'd have done more if we'd asked) up on rightmove and all the other big websites within about 48 hours. We had 4 offers off 11 viewings, which is a great conversion rate - I really think that the high quality and number of photos means that there are no wasted viewings and I wish that had been the case with our own house hunt as you already know if the kitchen is going to be too small etc etc. We accepted an offer on the flat after only 44 days on the market. Not only that - we sold the flat for £5K more than the maximum asking price that those 3 estate agents would have put it on the market for, and £12K higher than one of them - so really, what are we paying high street agents for anyway? We've now moved and I'd highly recommend these guys to anyone
Mrs Katherine Thompson (Ball) saved £2430 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service - it is refreshing to really recieve service and value. Thank you.
Mr Kevin Pugh saved £5850 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found the HN experience truly first class and amazing value for money. The excellent web page details linked from rightmove avoided lots of time wasting as all my viewers were serious buyers. As with most HN customers, my view is that the traditional high street estate agent is now obsolete! Why pay 10x the price for the same service (or inferior in many cases).
Mr Lee Bedford saved £3285 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very impressed with the overall service from Housenetwork - the team offered an excellent alternative to 'high street' estate agents. In particular we loved the high quality photography, which was organised very efficiently. We have already recommended Housenetwork to a number of colleagues, and one passerby who wanted to know more!
Mrs Kathryn Merrett saved £3675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We sold our house via House Network in 4 days. The marketing was extremely comprehensive with extensive photos and virtual tours. Our account manager was very efficient and dealt with our queries immediately. We saved ourselves over £2000 compared to the hight street agents and would highly recommend!
Mrs Susan Hewes saved £2662 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found this to be an excellent service, providing everything I could need to sell my house -- excellent photos, efficient service and advertising. Thank you so much.
Mr & Mrs Rundell saved £8550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would not hesitate to use House Network again & i have already recommended House Network to Friend's and Neighbours who have also sold. I have had a very stressful sale and House Network have always been there to help & take some of the pressure off! Nothing is too much trouble and anything you ask for is always done. A thoroughly Professional organization & i would never return to the high street agent's again!
Mrs Amanda Bewick saved £3675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork achieved a sale on my house for what comparatively was a very low sum indeed, only a quarter of what the cheapest high street agent in the area could offer. Their online management and communication systems are great for people who work during the day and are too busy to make phone calls. Their associated solicitors were also very helpful and efficient, while working for a competitive fee. They were the best conveyancing solicitors that I have ever used. The only 'real' difference between Housenetwork as a high street estate agent is that you show the house yourself but, in my experience, all the best viewings are conducted by the house owners anyway, as they are best placed to answer questions and give you a feel for the area. Overall I believe that Housenetwork offer very good value for an efficient service, for which I strongly recommend them.
Dr Keith Taylor saved £2445 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We would highly recommend Housenetwork and its virtual concept for estate agencies of the future. Our property has received excellent exposure in the market place. The personal web page and brochure easily surpasses anything that the high street agents can offer, providing day by day information on how many hits your property is achieving and its status in the market. Support and response from the agents has been excellent, and finally we have saved shed loads of money for a more sophisticated service.
Mrs Nola Rice-Wood & Mr Frank Wood saved £4462 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork has been extremely helpful, prompt and no-nonesense. It's been liberating to be able to change sales details, photos and the price online, without the time-delay involved in using a traditional agent. Perhaps the best thing about Housenetwork is that they are great value for money, something you can rarely say about traditional agents. Ultimately, Housenetwork supports you, and you need all the support you can get selling a house in this market!
Mr S Watson saved £5625 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Provided that you are happy to show buyers round your house yourself, I would recommend House Network to anyone.
David Lewin & Sue Weber saved £12375 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found the team at housenetwork to be very friendly and professional and extremely proactive in managing our sale, particularly in the run up to exchange when they were particularly helpful in contacting our buyers and their solicitors. Especially considering we had already paid the upfront fee - I didn't feel they were just trying to get the commission. As a buyer contacting some local estate agents I have found the service from housenetwork to be excellent and they have always got back to me in good time regarding any queries, they have also seemed extremely proactive in gaining feedback from viewings, which as a buyer I have not found other local agents have done regarding viewings I have made. I have also asked viewers and our buyers how they found HN and have never had any negative feedback. Excellent value for money. Special thanks to Danielle for her commitment (and personal touch) in helping us exchange contracts over the past few weeks. One other thing to note, although communication is primarily electronic, I have been contacted by phone and have also felt I have been able to call if need be and not restricted to contacting them electronically. Viewings have always been arranged quickly and often they get both parties on the line which speeds up the whole process.
Mrs Katy Hinton saved £2175 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Stress free, top customer service and as smooth as it is possible to be - we cannot recommend the House Network highly enough - I don't understand how standard agents get away with charging the fees that the do!
Mr Adam Coole & Ms Hege Soholt saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found the service very prompt and efficient. I always knew who was coming to view, who had made an offer and I was very happy with the photos which were taken. Thank you Housenetwork.
Mrs Linda Harrison saved £7950 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The Housenetwork experience overall was extremely positive and Toni was calm and helpful at all steps along the process. We felt we got really good value for money, the people we bought off paid £3,750 to their Estate Agent who refused to even make calls because they were too busy! I will be recommending Housenetwork to anyone who will listen! Many thanks, keep up the good work Liz Thompson
Mr & Mrs Thompson saved £2535 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork is good value for money for the standard of service that you get. The customer service team are helpful and are prompt in giving you feedback. The web page is fantastic in that prospective buyers can look at extensive pictures for every room in the house, 3D floorplans and even do a virtual tour. You can also keep track of how many people have visited your site, how many viewings have taken place and all the feedback is uploaded for you to look at a time that suits you. I would definitely use Housenetwork again. All in all, housenetwork is much better value for money than a high street agent.
Miss Terri Houlton saved £3450 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very impressed with the extremely professional and cost effective service. Housenetwork.co.uk offers excellent value for money and we have recommended them to all our family and friends. We will NEVER use a traditional estate agents again! Housenetwork.co.uk is the future! Many Thanks to the Housenetwork team.
Mrs Elizabeth & Dai Edwards saved £2295 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
After a year of shabby service from three other estate agents, I put my cottage on House Network.co.uk. I had a good offer after 21 days which I accepted. From start to finish it was easy. The team at House Network.co.uk were always friendly, professional, efficient and helpful. The photographer arrived after two days of signing up and took 24 super photos which presented my house beautifully. I could choose the best ones, edit them and change them if I wanted to, at any time. Any questions I had were answered within hours by the staff in the office. I did my own viewings which is far better than having a stranger showing your house to someone else, as you can fit it in to suit you - and no one sells your own house like yourself. Any viewing requests or offers get emailed to you, and if you don't answer within a couple of hours, they call you. I told my neighbours about House Network, and they sold thier house in a matter of weeks as well! I will never go anywhere else - this place is for real - they are incredible. Thanks so much to everyone!
Joanna Worman saved £2130 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The number of photographs and the visual tour of our property really helped to sell it and the fact that we had a prominent place on the primary property websites really worked in our favour.
Mrs Helen Howell saved £4365 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I did Recommend Housenetwork to my Neighbour and they had very good offers and sold within 4 weeks of marketing it. Housenetwork saved me £7,550 by using this service and the client Login Area is very handy to keep you updated
Mrs Tina Owen saved £8400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was very pleased with the whole experience from start to finish - staff were helpful, the house pictures were very good, we had plenty of viewings and had accepted an offer for the house within two weeks. The charges were so much less than a high street estate agent & saved us a lot of money. This was my late parents' house, and I will definitely use housenetwork again when we look to sell our house in the near future.
Margaret Raynor saved £2362 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Many thanls for your quality service, you have saved me over £2,000 and given me the same service as any high street Estate Agents
Kerstine Hogg saved £3540 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I buy and sell houses for a living and this is my first experience of using House Network. I have to say that House Network have far surpassed any estate agent we have used in terms of efficiency, professionalism, service, ease of use and cost. It has cost us around 10% of the price we would ususally pay to an estate agent - and every aspect of the service we have received has been excellent. They have obviously thoroughly researched market and customers needs and have consequently got the whole package just right. We already have another property for sale with House Network and will never again go back to using conventional estate agents. We will also highly recommend them to others - as they were to us. Thank you
Margaret Kerns saved £3712 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thanks for all your efforts in helping us to sell our house. The service was faultless, we would have no hesitation in recommending you to others. Regards, Gerran
Mr Gerran Longley saved £2310 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We chose house network to sell our house because of the price, obviously, but also because their website and ads were attractive, informative and user friendly. We had 5 or 6 viewings and two offers, one of which we accepted. We sold within 4 months! The staff were always happy to answer "stupid" questions! A good friend also used Housenetwork after my recommendation and sold her house before we did! Well done and thanks!
Mr Alan & Mrs Susan Dunn saved £3450 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
What can I say but fantastic!!From day one right through to completion both House Network and House Network Conveyancing have been first class,(and considerably cheaper) pity the same can't always be said about the rest of the industry.We will certainly use them both again if we ever decide to move again,and would recommend them to everyone!!!
Deborah Woods and Francis Woods saved £2895 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would definitely recommend House networks services. They have saved me a fortune in estate agents fees and have provided a top quality service from start to finish.
Mr michael king saved £1710 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The service we received from House Network was outstanding. I've always had hesitations about traditional estate agents, but the service that House Network provide is straight forward and transparent.The days of vested interests, lies and shoddy dealings have finally gone. I just wish the house we purchased was advertised through them. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. Thanks again for all your hard work!
Mr Francis Lang saved £3225 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
My experience with selling my property through Housenetwork was extremely positive. Gemma, the account manager for the property was very helpful and quick in responding to any questions we had. I have already recommended Housenetwork to 2 friends who have put their property up for sale through Housenetwork.
Mr Adam Boyce saved £3570 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I cannot recommend HN highly enough. Within 24 hours of contacting them and shelling out £650, the guy arrived to take photos, virtual tour, do floor plans and energy certificate assessment. 12 hours later he'd published to the web site, having done room descriptions etc we didn't have to do anything. 48 hours later we had our first viewing. Our house sold within 10 days, to someone that saw the board outside and then viewed online (moral: spend 40 quid on the board!).
Throughout the entire process we were kept up to date with progress, viewers were asked for comments on the property, whether interested or not, which provided very useful feedback. HN handled the actual offer, contacting solicitors etc. To cap it all, we'd been quoted £5800 by a High Street Estate Agent to sell our property. We spent the £5000 we saved on new furniture for our new property. Many thanks HN! HN don't have a High Street presence and they don't show clients around, but for everything else they beat High Street Estate Agents hands down. I can't guarantee all go as smoothly as ours did, but for £650 up front it's got to be worth a punt (and no, they didn't pay me to say this!)
Mr Dennis Harris saved £6075 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was very happy with the service I received and at such a great price. My named contact, Rob, was really helpful and friendly, and always responded to my emails and phone calls promptly. I was very fortunate that the first person who viewed my house bought it! I've already recommended HouseNetwork to my friends.
Ms Catherine Armstrong saved £3150 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have been greatly impressed by Housenetwork's professionalism and have already been recommending your services to our friends. Our viewers also reported how easy it was to get hold of Housenetwork to arrange viewings, and your polite, friendly service. Great value for money, and better service than a High Street estate agent, what more can anyone ask for!
Wilco Crapels saved £4425 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service from start to finish, particulary at the end of the sale process particularly in keeping the line of communications open between buyer and seller to get the completion date.
Mrs Shirley Jack saved £5100 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent estate agent service without the rip off charges. Conducting viewings was no problem and potential purchasers appear to prefer the knowledgeable answers from the actual owner of the property compared with a traditional estate agent.
Mr & Mrs Keys saved £3525 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
From the moment we decided to use House Network to place our property on the market, the service they have offered has been outstanding. The agent they sent round to take the photographs & room layouts was professional, knowledgeable & courteous. The way the house was marketed was fantastic & we accepted an offer on the property a week after the details were first published to the web. We also, decided to use the House Network Conveyancing service & again we found them to be polite, dedicated & handled the whole legal process in an incredibly professional & easy-to-understand way. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the House Network to anyone looking to put their property on the market & we have saved a small fortune in high street estate agent & solicitor's fees. Thank you again so much for the outstanding work you have done in making the sale of our house a success
Mrs Tracy McManus saved £2220 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network are absolutely brilliant, I would recommend them to anyone. I sold my home within a couple of months and then used their Conveyancing Department and would recommend them aswell. Everyone I spoke to at House Network were friendly and very helpful. If I sell again I would definately use them again, much better than an Estate Agents and solicitors and at half the price.
Mrs Elsie Plowman saved £4575 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would certainly use Housenetwork again as it was an overall good experience
Mrs SHEILA MOORE saved £2228 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork were value for money, quality for money and always at the end of a PC if you had a question. I would highly recommend them for future family and friends. Internet house selling is the way to go.
Mrs Eve Sharpe saved £2040 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The service has been quite exceptional. We would never consider using a 'high street' agent again!
Mr Michael Thomas & Mrs Kathryn Helen Brown saved £3562 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Overall, we recieved a good service at a lot less cost than going through an Estate agent on the street & were kept informed at all stages of the sale & it is really helpfull to just be able to log on to see how things were going & keep an eye on the number of people looking at your property on line.
Helen Nixon saved £3000 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network was easy, efficient and quick. The ability to manage your own site is defintely a bonus and it is significantly cheaper than 'traditional' estate agents. I accepted an offer on my house within 10 days of putting it up for sale, I think that says it all.
Adam John Collantine saved £1755 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very easy sales process with friendly experienced staff, excellent customer attention.
Paul Dalton saved £7500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork are very efficient and pleasant to deal with. Their systems work well, and they provide a good value service which in many respects is superior to that of traditional agents.
Dr James Freund saved £6855 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The experience we had with Housenetwork was first rate and we have already recommended your services to friends. Keep doing what you're doing as the service you provide at the price you charge has to be good for housing market across the country.
Mrs Jodi Speight saved £6255 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House sold in 4 days!! Excellent service, really fantastic picture/ images on the site. Great communicators always in touch and aware what was happening. Would have cost 2,300 with an estate agent to sell, wouldn't have had anymore service than we received with House Network so well worth the money......thanks
Yvonne Rowell (Gareth Morgan) saved £2495 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Highly commendable and we have told everyone about House Network - we were, after all, directed to House Network from someone else's recommendation.
Mr David Stirk saved £2738 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Our agent - Toni Bass - was an exemplary employee who worked tirelessly on an awful case! We had a terrible time with losing chains and she was the ONLY person who chased and found out what was going on. When other organisations and solicitors sat on their hands and waited for information to come to them, she sought it out and communicated effectively, regularly and honestly with everyone she could. We've had an excellent experience with Housenetwork! A rarity amongst estate agents - honest and communicative. Thank you!
Mr & Mrs Whitehouse saved £4425 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Selling our house through House Network could not have been easier. The process of getting the house to market was simple and efficient. Staff were always knowledgeable, proficient and available to answer queries. Arranging viewings was exceptionally easy, a call and email to say there was a request, confirmation of time and date immediately, all available to view whenever we wanted on the client area of the website. All viewers (and there were plenty!) said how efficient the process of booking an appointment had been. Offers made through House Network were handled efficiently and good advice and a knowledgeable sounding board was there for us when we needed it (Gemma, thankyou). We felt we had as much or as little support as we needed and had none of the badgering and pressure from our agent that family and friends have experienced with other estate agents. When we accepted an offer, other interested viewers were kept informed of our progress at our request, just in case it all fell through, but in the end, our sale has been completed in just under 12 weeks (first contact with House Network to exchange of contracts). We were confident to deal directly with our buyers and solicitors but feel sure that had we needed more input from House Network during the contract stages, the process and support was in place. A faultless performance from House Network, many thanks!!
Nigel & Susan Blackburn saved £4965 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I too was initially unsure of using an on line agent despite my own investigations and having convinced myself this must work, as my own existing agent had told me 80 to 90% of enquiries come from buyers having searched web portals, so what was I waiting for ?? After 3 months with a traditional agent with my house receiving no viewings, no doubt in part to the inflated valuation they gave, I jumped to HN. What a transformation, not only was their response quick, photos and details within 48 hrs, their customer service in responding to all queries was excellent ! Compared to my existing agent who could not even return mails and phone calls this was truely brilliant. I did my own investigations on price (websites where you can input what you paid and when, were useful) together with a study of similar property in my area. I had several viewings within a month and although the final buyer was not until a few months later, the service was first class, particularly the ability to manage it all on-line. My patience was wearing thin towards the end (sorry Gemma) but that's normal with this conveyancing system and no reflection on HN or their solicitors. A special thanks to Gemma and Seema to get us to exchange in 6 weeks, which by previous experience is pretty quick even though it seems longer. I only hope that by the time I move again (which won't be soon) you have an increased presence in Scotland so I can use your service again !
Mr David Webb saved £4425 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Initially I was sceptical that an online agent would be as effective as a local one. We had several viewings booked within a day and the house was sold six days later. The service was prompt and efficient and I wouldn't hesitate to use House Network again.
Mrs Dianne and Mr John Whitehead saved £4665 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were initially very unsure about using an internet estate agent but the service has been first class from start to finish. All the staff have been helpful and polite and we were very impressed by the photographs and virtual tour of the rooms, which were also positively commented upon by prospective buyers. We have already recommended housenetwork to friends and colleagues and would definitely use them if we should ever move house again. Great service at a great price.
Janet Forster saved £3749 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Having decided to put my house on the market, I wondered how to do so without paying the high cost of doing so through a high street estate agent. I can do everything else on line so why not sell a house? I opted for Housenetwork because it seemed to be well established in this field. I have to admit I did look on this as a bit of an experiment! I am gobsmacked by how easy and efficient the whole process was. The photograpy was great and the information available to potential viewers was very comprehensive, The visibility of my property on various property websites, most importantly Rightmove was excellent. Having put my property on the market on 1 March, I had 6 viewings. I had several offers and accepted one for the asking price just 16 days later. We have just exchanged contracts. The Housenetwork staff are friendly, helpful and efficient and the advice was great at all times. I could see how may hits the property was getting and really liked the appointment booking system and the feedback after visits which was quickly available on to my personal account area. The communication was excellent too. I would use Housenework again without any hestiation and I've lost count of the people that I have recommended it to. I saved £5225. I'll stop now, even though I can think of loads more to say! A big thank you to everyone at Housenetwork.
Ms Caroline Hobden saved £4425 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We would 100% recommend house network. We had viewers to our property every week - even during winter months. In a slow housing market and difficult economic conditions we had an offer on our property in a short period of time. We did not accept this and were never pressurised to do so and finally we came to a mutual aggrement with our prospective buyer. It was always possible to speak to some-one at House Nework rather than just relying on e-mail, and the staff were a pleasure to deal with. We took House Network's middle option and on rendering their final invoice we were delighted with how little we had to pay compared to a conventional agent. If you want to sell your house in an up to date economically priced method, then I suggest that you deal with House Network. Sue Orriel - June 2010
Mr Simon & Mrs Barbara Susan Orriel saved £4680 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House network were fantastic to deal with and always professional and helpful. I would certainly recommend them to others and I'd use them again! I also went for the option of using the house network solicitors and I was extremely happy with the level of interaction and how even if you can't speak directly to the solicitor at times, the team would very quickly look at the file and provide you with an update. Most satisfying when you are calling to just check on progress etc. Once again, highly recommend both the online estate agents and solicitors!
Mr Mohammed Hussain saved £2378 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We decided to try Housenetwork as the high street agents were so expensive and we were not disappointed. From day one we had a constant stream of viewers and offers. It took 107 days from going 'live' on the internet to moving into our new home. The whole experience was amazing. We were kept updated along the way and it was good to be able to keep an eye on viewing requests, offers and feedback on our client page. I would definitely recommend Housenetwork, in fact our daughter will be contacting them in the near future with regards to her house sale. In particular, the photographs were amazing and lots of our viewers commented on them. This meant that the viewers were almost as familiar with our house as we were ourselves. A big thankyou to everyone involved at Housenetwork.
Mrs Shirley Allen & Mr Kevin Allen saved £3068 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would have NO hesitation in recommending anyone to sell their property through Housenetwork. The staff have been amazingly supportive and helpful, from the initial set up to the completion date. The webpages are fantastic, particularly the fact that you can see how many people have viewed your site, and the record of actual property viewers with their feedback. And the SO speedy communications via telephone, text and email... WONDERFUL!!!. I loved it, and would recommend everyone to sell their house this way. And this is all without the fact that it only cost me about 10% of what the local estate agents quoted me. Thank you so much!
Mr Timothy & Mrs Jenny Carter saved £3488 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you for the very high quality service you offered. Your employees were polite and helpful. From start to finish everything has been undertaken with ease.
Ms Martina Thompson saved £3660 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
great feedback, follow up's etc and I will be using Housenetwork again in the future.
Mr Paul Riley saved £5520 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I guess many people might be nervous about an internet based estate agent, HOWEVER, the level of service (eg photos, floor plans, virtual tours etc) is better than any 'high street' estate agent. The presence on Rightmove and other online facilities is fantastic and the communications from the Housenetwork team impeccable. In this modern digital age, this type of service is exactly what is required to sell a house with a minimum of fuss and at a VERY competitive price. I whole-heartedly recommend Housenetwork as not just a viable alternative to what is already out there but as a superior alternative. Thanks for your help in selling the house. Professor Darren Sproston and Mrs Emma Baker
Emma Baker saved £5325 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House network offered a cost effective and professional alternative to mainstream estate agents. Our Client Manager (Robert Bacon) was great, got back to us quickly and ensured the process went as smoothly as possible. Highly recommended.
Mr Robin Bettison saved £1838 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork provided a great service when I was selling my home. They came out quickly to take photo's which looked great. After viewings they would obtain feedback from the viewers. I would recommend this service to everyone!!
Louise Wood saved £1695 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Having no time for high street agents, but wanting someone to oversee the admin House Network provided the perfect medium, offering maximum exposure at very little comparative cost. I also used the House Network Conveyancing team and HIPS, which kept everything tight in a one stop shop. I sold to my second viewer in just under 5 weeks. The excellent layout of the site including photos, 360 view and floorplan ensures no timewasted viewings. The online 'chat' provided answers to my queries immediately and without fuss. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending House Network to anyone. Definitely one to use again and again.
Ms Hannah Leigh Taylor saved £3518 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The only way to sell a house! House Network offered us amazing value for money and a hassle free alternative to the usual out of date way to sell a property. We found other estate agents over valuing our house to get our business and being misleading about house prices in the area. We loved the fact that we were in charge of our sale but could contact our House Network representative whenever we needed too. They always got back to us straight away and were helpful, professional and organised.
Miss Michelle Adkins saved £1702 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
It was an estate agent who made me aware of House Network, when he assumed I had heard of your service, and scoffed that I'd probably dismissed your service and was now coming back to a 'usual' agent. I had satisfaction in letting him know I was going to use your service, and haven't looked back. I'm convinced this is the way of the future in the UK market, as I wasn't prepared to pay the large fees local agents were trying to charge. Not only that, but they all under estimated the actual value of the property, so the return to me from using House Network has been £3000 to £4000! You do have a great product, but what without doubt makes it work is the dedication of the Account Manager. I was lucky enough to have Gemma Simmons looking after the account, and I found her attention to detail, friendly manner, swift response time, and knowledge of the property market to be far better than that of any estate agent I have had contact with before. She'll be getting a present from Sweden! In summary, superb idea, great savings and outstanding staff! I have and will continue to recomend you to friends. Thanks Doug Yates
Mr Douglas Yates & Miss Linda Niemela saved £3690 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Superb service and efficiency from start to finish. We were always kept informed and never had to chase up information. The brochure and website were perfect, and our buyers were also impressed with the service. Excellent value and would recommend to anyone. So much better than the High Street.
Dr John Watts saved £5700 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork was superb - friendly, efficient and achieved the sales result with the huge savings over a conventional estate agent. I would recommend them to anyone.
Mr Geoffrey Jones saved £3525 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Superb service. Extraordinarily efficient and responsive to queries. As long as you are happy to show people around (and we preferred to do that than leave it to an agent) it beats the conventional way of doing things hands down.
Jane McCarthy saved £10350 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have been very impressed with House Network and would recommend them. The photos and brochure for our property were of very good quality. There were so many photos and 360 views of main rooms, included as part of the package. We have used traditional Estate Agents in the past and believe that we have received a much better service by using House Network. Our property details have reached so many people. We even had three viewings just by people seeing the "For Sale" sign and knocking the door. If you want to sell you need to reach as many people as possible and House Network certainly did that for us. Many thanks for helping us to achieve a sale.
Mrs Lynnette Garrett saved £3225 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
All the staff I came into contact with during the exceedingly quick and smooth sale of our property were superb. There were no sour pressurising attitudes that you get with estate agents and I have already recommended House Network to 3 friends. To have a successful sale from the first viewer was excellent and something I didn't honestly believe would happen. Thank you for making what usually is a very stressful process quick, simple and cost effective - saved us £2,500! Many thanks Sarah Crouch, London
Miss Sarah Crouch saved £1995 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
HN sold our house within 8 weeks.
Mr Gary Watkin & Hayley Watkin saved £3570 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very pleased. Superb web page and very efficient staff. When I called the phone was always answered promptly and whoever I talked to new all the current developments of the sale.
Mr Richard Jones saved £2925 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I thank House Network for all their support and have felt they have conducted the sale of my house very profesionally. They were always efficient and quick to respond. I had a huge amount of interest and viewings and this was managed I felt very well. Thank you to all the team and especially Dean, my agent.
Mrs Diane Johnson saved £2595 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have recently used Housing Network and their Conveyancing Dept, to sell our house and have found them to be at all times very efficient, helpful and pleasant and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Mrs Josephine Booker & Mrs J Turner saved £1650 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A family member made us aware of House Network as we were all ready to instruct a traditional 'high street' estate agent and we are so glad we did. Not only did we save a lot of money (approx. £1500) but everything was made extremely easy when it came to organising viewings etc. Our house was advertised on Right Move, which we believe to be the first website people look at when finding property. We placed our house on the market just before Christmas 2009 and after many viewings accepted an offer mid February above our original asking price. The photos House Network take are, in our opinion, much better than others we have seen and after speaking to people who came to view our house, House Network were easy to contact and polite. We really cannot recommend House Network enough. At the end of the day, moving house is an expensive business and any money you can save is a huge bonus. So many thanks to House Network for making the selling process as pain free as possible and we would definitely use them again! Steve & Clara Morgan, Sheffield.
Mr Steve Morgan saved £1740 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Found your whole operation very efficient and professional. We took the best upfront package (option 3). The web site had 40 photos, virtual tour, 3D plan etc. All viewings were booked directly by phone sometimes with all parties talking through the housenetwork operator. Plenty of follow up reminders via e mail about appointments. We had a dedicated sales person and own members page with the latest information on how our sale was progressing, prospective buyers reviews, house and room hits that we could access 24 hrs a day. I also used the live chat room before signing up with housenetwork and they answered every question that I had to my full satisfaction. The only thing that I had to ask for was a SOLD sign. Any high street agent would have had that up at the first offer. A very successful team effort. Thank you.
Gordon Wallace saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have been very impressed with House Network. Service has been excellent, always kept us updated, friendly and supportive. Would use again and have already recommended to others. Particularly impressed with Robert Bacon, our Account Manager who has been fantastic throughout.
Mrs Rebecca Hillier saved £3749 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very efficient and professional service from beginning to end at a fraction of the price of High Street agents. Would recommend them to anyone
Mrs Marilyn Anderton saved £3262 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I am still amazed that traditional estate agents do so little for thousands of pounds, House Network stood out because of the feedback they gathered after viewings, which was crucial for managing our sale. I will never use a traditional estate agent again, this was real value for money.
Mrs Sally England-Jones saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A fantasic service and a great way to sell your house in todays internet market. Thanks.
Mr & Mrs Smith saved £4260 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very happy from start to finish with the housenetwork. From the initial phone call, price, excellent photographer who spent time to get as much detail on our property as possible. We would recommend housenetwork to anyone.
Chris Dillon saved £1095 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is my second property sale through House Network. I find them to be great value for money and the service and speed of delivery leaves me with no complaints. If I ever have to put myself through home moving again, I'll definitely put House Network right at the top of the list.
Mr Daishik Chauhan saved £2445 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was extremely pleased with the service you offer. The marketing you provide is second to none and the viewings service exceptional. I was most impressed however throughout this, at times, stressful procedure by the support and professionalism extended to me by Dean Fisher as my account manager and Seema Shah and her team as my legal representatives. Both were in regular contact with help and advice and on that basis alone I would thoroughly recommend housenetwork.co.uk.
Jason Laxton-Blinkhorn & Claire Moreton saved £3562 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Our experience with you has been excellent. Your computerised system is very efficient and we loved the way our property was displayed on-line as well as being able to swap the photos around as we fancied .However, more impressive have been the people we have worked with at Housenetwork, always courteous and efficient. At the set-up stage we spoke mainly with Dean; and latterly with Gemma during the actual sale. Both have been unfailingly friendly as well as extremely efficient and responsive. Specifically, during a protracted and complicated sale process, Gemma has been clear-thinking and very effective at moving things on, always reacting swiftly even tho' she is very busy. Our buyer has also commented on how efficient Gemma is! Housenetwork has proved to be more pro-active than other agents in the chain - and of course, far cheaper than any of them, saving us thousands of pounds. Now that everybody searches internet portals for property, we can see no point in paying extra for a conventional estate agent and would certainly recommend Housenetwork to any of our friends or family.
Mr Paul & Mrs Lindy Graham saved £7560 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Totally Brilliant. Great service, quick and friendly staff always willing to help.
Greig Avery saved £2850 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I will never use a 'normal' estate agent ever again. My calls were always answered immediately. Anyone I spoke to had access to and knowledge of my case. I was emailed and called whenever an update occurred. All viewers feedback was logged and could be accessed on mass, so any recurring themes were apparent. The quality and number of photo's of my property exceeded any other estate agents on rightmove and stopped in-coming traffic that were curious, rather than serious buyers. I went with HouseNetwork initially because of the huge money saving but I'd use them again because of the excellent service. Many thanks to my Account Manager, Greg Jennings, and the rest of the team. You've made a difficult journey a breeze.
Mr Edward & Mrs Wendy Beaumont saved £4575 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very pleased with the high standard of service received from House Network. The amount of quality photos enabled us to show every room in detail. We have used normal estate agents before and had streams of people looking but no buyers! The second person round, arranged by House Network to view made an offer and we accepted. We will definitely use you again. Many thanks.
Mr Phil O'Neil saved £2235 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Having had two of the so called best estate agents near Ilkley, West Yorkshire, they provided a very poor service in comparison to Housenetwork. The information of the property that Housenetwork provides for the potential viewer is far superior to other agents. You have a dedicated account manager, are kept uptodate with everything, viewings, replies etc. All this is in your account and for a saving of £4,500 you get excellent value. For showing potential viewers, I cannot see how the estate agents can justify their fees. There is no better way to sell a property than through Housenetwork. Many thanks to Dean and your staff. I have been recommending your services to all that are thinking of selling and I shall be marketing an apartment very shortly with you.
Richard Kordowicz & Elaine Kordowicz saved £4499 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The sale was a long drawn out one as a succession of five prospective buyers came up against problems that prevented them from completing the purchase. Throughout, the manager dealing with the sale never lost patience and provided a very good service. Indeed, he even cheered me up.
Mr Arye Freedman saved £7500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would recommend House Network. They work hard to stay in contact & forward the details of prospective buyers very quickly. Our property was also on the market with a local agent, & while the volume of enquiries came through them, the more genuine enquiries & the ultimate buyer came through House Network. This method saved thousands of pounds.
Mr Brian Wright & Valerie Wright saved £3544 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have dealt with several estate agencies over the years and generally speaking have not had good experiences with them, that is, until I dealt with House Network. Because they do not operate on a system that relies on a percentage of the sale price for their profits, it is not in their interest to manipulate or inflate the sale price and this is what sets them apart from other estate agencies. Not to mention that their fees are set, so you will save hundreds if not thousands of pounds. The team is totally reliable, efficient and honest in their dealings with their client. I was impressed with their viewing ''reminder' system, which comes in the form of an email plus text message. I have already recommended House Network to colleagues and friends and will continue to do so. If I require the services of an estate agent in the future, I would definitely go with House Network again. Extra information: Rob Bacon managed my account until recently, so some of my comments above are a result of his outstanding customer service.
Name witheld saved £2700 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
On the whole a very professional service, from the standard of the photography on the website to corresponding with Dean Fisher when a buyer was found. All for a very reasonable fee.
Mr Ian Wiseman & Mrs Debra Wiseman saved £2070 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were extremely satisfied with the experience of using an on-line estate agent and would recommend House Network to anyone. When we got in touch by phone or email the response was first rate. Overall excellent value for money.
Linda & Malcolm Fraser saved £4500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was very happy with the professional service that I received. Being able to keep up to date with feedback from viewings online was very helpful. The presentation of the website and range of photos taken was very impressive and I believe helped with my house sale. I would definitely use Housenetwork again.
Mrs Elizabeth Cole saved £2940 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would recommend this firm to anyone. The service was excellent, they were very pro active in marketing our house and extremely efficient in the way that they managed the viewing and negotiations. We took advantage of their offer of paying "up front" and they still made every effort on our behalf to secure a sale. We saved thousands by using this firm. Many thanks to everyone.
Mr & Mrs Edwards saved £4388 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Lets face it. Estate agents do not enjoy the best of publicity but like anything else you have to look at value for money and the quality of service provided. In my case Housenetwork provided a first rate service for much less than you would pay for high street agents. They were there when you wanted them and always on the ball with your transactions. You will not be getting an inferior service just because you have paid less with Housenetwork. I wholeheartedly recommend Housenetwork for their professionalism, friendliness and efficiency.
Mr Paul Milton-Lyons saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I decided to try House Network, after considering a few options with local estate agents. I decided it was worth a try, especially with their fees. From day 1, I found their service to be polite, professional and prompt! The photographs are of the highest quality, much better than those taken by 'traditional' estate agents. My house was advertised for sale for 1 week before I got a viewer - that viewer then offered the price I wanted 10 minutes after viewing the property. Since then, the whole process has been smooth and hassle free. House Network keep you fully informed every step of the way. I have since recommended House Network to a number of people, 3 of whom have marketed their properties since, 1 of which sold within a few weeks, and the other 2 have generated a lot of interest. I couldn't speak more highly of House Network - thanks to Toni and all involved, and keep up the good work!
Miss Jennifer Elson saved £1508 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you so much for all your help. I have now exchanged. I am passing your contact details on to lots of people. You were brilliant.
Lynne Burke saved £12180 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great service - very reasonably priced, efficient, helpful, thanks very much, if we ever move again we will definately use again.
Ms D Atkins & Mr C Webber saved £2775 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent and efficient service at a very reasonable price. Have already persuaded a friend to use Housenetwork for her house sale.
Ms Alison Patey saved £3675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would like to thank House Network for their excellent service. I certainly will be recommending you to all my friends, family and colleagues. You provided a wonderful service from start to finish and the property photos taken were of a significantly higher quality than any other high street agencies I have been with in the past. I definitely wouldn't hesitate in using your service again.
Miss Vicki Cottenham saved £4905 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network fulfilled all our expectations and more. very professional would defiantly recommend them.

I would like to thank you and the rest of the HouseNetwork team for the very professional service you have provided us with since we placed our house on the market with you. Great service at a reasonable cost! I will be recommending you to everyone I know when they think of selling
Deena Sharkey saved £6780 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was impressed by the comprehensive service offered by House Network. They were efficient and always courteous on the telephone. I always felt they were approachable at any time I needed answers to my queries and the service was very good value for money. I would definitely recommend them to my friends.
Ms Carol Feek saved £1650 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent modern service provided by staff and website. The Website house layout and photos helped buyers in selecting our house to view, therefore, only having viewings from interested buyers. Best use of internet selling!
Mrs Reece saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The whole process and experince with Housenetwork has been excellent. The early stages of collating the details and getting the various websites set up was very good indeed. The ability to set up the details as I would like to sell and promote my property and Housenetworks implimentation of that was very good, professional, and quick. That resulted in far better quality viewings than with my previous estate agent, leading to little time wasting on viewings, a number of people very interested in the property, and resulted in a very quick sale. The experience was many times better than dealing with local estate agents. I saved in excess of £6,000 on the agents fee's and sold with Housenetworks help for £20,000 more than my previous agent was suggesting I should be taking for my property, so a very profitable experience, thank you Housenetwork.
Mr Steve King saved £4800 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
My main concern before I instructed housenetwork to act for me was whether an online estate agent could offer the exposure that a conventional high street agent could- but within just a few days of my advert going live, the viewing requests started coming in thick and fast and exceeded my expectations. The website is professionally laid out and it's clear that with access to rightmove.co.uk, that's all the exposure you need. A prompt and professional service was delivered throughout, and housenetwork gave me unreasonably good value for money to the extent where I've felt guilty about the paltry fee that was asked of me.
Mr Gary Benn saved £1875 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Fantastic service by Gemma who was my account manager. This was reaffirmed by the buyer who said all questions were anserwed in a prompt fashion. Whole process was made simple which was appreciated as it was my first sale. I also felt no pressure to accept any offers as i might from Estate Agents working purely on commision. So Thank you very much.
Phil Rogers saved £1755 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent value for money, the work carried out to market the house was carried out more thoroughly than with estate agents. The fact that you select and alter the photos and can add detail to help sell your house - by liasing with the house network team the house is only marketed when you are satified and it is done so to your requirements. Would definately use again rather than dealing with local estate agents.
Mr John & Mrs Jane Darbyshire saved £5025 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We cannot praise Housenetwork enough with regards the sale of our property. The service they provide is far superior than any estate agent we have used in the past. The members site has up to date information on every aspect of your property, ranging from how many people have looked at your property on the internet, feedback on any viewings right up to the completion of the sale. This service you do not get from the local estate agents, you never know if there has been any interest in your property unless you ask. We would recommend Housenetwork to anyone who is thinking of selling their property, we have saved over £10000 (YES TEN THOUSAND POUNDS) on our sale and received a service second to none. Thanks to Gemma and all the team at Housenetwork.
Mrs Amanda Campbell/ Mr David Campbell saved £7875 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A huge thank you House Network for the first class service, we coudn't have asked for more. A winning concept providing the client with an excellent option to the high street agents who have charged far too much for far too long. Unlimited photo's, virtual tour, online feedback and the friendly service we received (thanks Gregg!) make this company the one to use. We will certainly recommend House Network and we will definitely use them again.
Leo De Jong saved £7499 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A huge thank you from all of us here, for your professionalism, your prompt attention to every single query regardless of how trivial, your polite unobtrusive method of getting things moving, and thank you for saving us a massive £10,000. We will happily recommend you to all our family and friends. You were, and are, superb.
Mr W & Mrs E Palmer saved £9750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
First class service, excellent value for money, we have recommended you to everyone, why does anyone still use overpriced high street estate agents?
Mr Peter Williams and Ms Sharon Rush saved £3112 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We've been very happy with the response to your marketing efforts and with the way Gemma communicated with all concerned, using every available phone number, email address, etc. It was probably more complicated than most. It was not our our property, so we had a local man doing the viewings etc. as we're 60 miles away and were abroad part of the time. We were particularly impressed with Gemma's handling of a difficult situation when the first buyer dropped out and the second got wobbly, finally going on to the third, which has now come to fruition - thanks to her for that. This is the second time in 2 years we've used your service and we do recommend you to others, some of whom have acted on the recommendation. Thanks again for another very satisfactory experience. Best regards.
Julie Diane Hill-Smith saved £1965 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The service we received from House Network from start to finish was outstanding. The efficiency of House Network was mentioned by every viewer that we had. Honest, helpful feedback was e-mailed to us without fail and left on our comments page. A great easy to use, fool proof client page where we could change our photos and any changes we wished to make were always done so with immediate effect. An affordable, easy to use practical approcah to selling our house and we cannot wait to let the Local High Street Estate agents know this. We cannot thank you enough fo helping us to sell our Home.
Mr Darren & Mrs Jemima Wyrill saved £3938 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Helpful and friendly staff. Very professional service. Would recommend without hesitation.
Mr Karl & Mrs Katie Barrett saved £2595 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have just exchanged contracts with a buyer. I wish to thank you for your attention and compliment you on your dealings with us during the marketing of Our house. Well done! I'd gladly recommend your services to anyone. We had another Estate Agent originally and were dissatisfied with the attention we got. Also we certainly got plenty of viewings and saved quite a lot of money. Thanks again
Brigid Cusack saved £4950 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service and value for money, a refreshing change from other estate agents!
Mr Jamie & Mrs Rachel Copping saved £3585 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Fantastic. All the service of a high street agent at a fraction of the cost. Photos and advert on housemove were also top notch. The appointments were duly emailed to us and reminders of appointments always sent. Would recommend to anyone selling a house.
Rachel and John Hunt saved £3450 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I HAVE ONLY ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE THE TEAM AT THE HOUSENETWORK. FANTASTIC... from start to finish they gave advise and help on all aspects from marketing the property even through to the conveyencing. I would recommend them to any one who is thinking of selling a property.
David Wilde saved £3749 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Having dealt with a few estate agents in our time and with a house move being a big financial outlay, we were reluctant to spend out money unnecessarily. We came across an article on 'Which?' magazine website which mentioned HouseNetwork, so decided to embrace new technology and give it a go. We were impressed by the quality of the photos, virtual tour etc. and the fact that we felt in control and could access our details quite easily. We would certainly go down this route again, should we ever sell, because as someone commented to us during our purchase, "it makes you wonder what you pay these estate agents for". We also used HouseNetwork conveyancing service and would highly recommend them. Our case handler Neema, worked her socks off to try to get, what turned out to be, a difficult process resolved swiftly. Thank you.
Kenneth Wilkinson saved £4275 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Amazing, this saved me paying £3k to one of the local estate agents who do very little but think there service is somehow worth this much. If you're willing to show people round, and let's face it you can do a better job than most estate agents, then all you need is rightmove and someone to take calls from prospective buyers. Housenetwork provided me with a more professional rightmove page than any I have seen with great photos and floor plans (check some out if you don't believe me) and offered a fast and efficient booking and feedback service for viewings. What more do you need? I have recommended them to everyone I know.
Madoc Tipple saved £3225 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I wasn't sure what to expect from an online agency but I thought I'd give it a go to save money. I have been very impressed with the whole process. Everything HouseNetwork offered was delivered efficiently and quickly. My sale took a long time but I think this was mainly due to the recession and a lack of buyers looking for my type of property. The communication with my case handler Gregg was excellent and his help with my own search for a property was fantastic. I cannot recommend this service highly enough, it has saved me a huge amount of money which I can now spend on my new pad! Thanks House Network!!
Kerry Oldham saved £1710 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork found a buyer for my house and it wa sold and completed within three months. My account manager was very efficient and helpful and always responded quickly either by email or telephone. Selling at £750,000 I saved a considerable amount in estate agents fees, so I would recommend their service wholeheartedly.
Gill Brailey saved £11250 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
They are the nicest people to deal with, unlike the 'run of the mill' estate agents who are condescending and never really listen to what you have to say. We all like to feel that we get value for money and i can honestly say that it is money well spent. I will always use house network and confidently will recommend their service to anybody.
Barbara St-James saved £1650 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Other agents should wake up and look at the future of house selling via client access web sites, being emailed uptodate info on your property for viewings, feedback and ability to change your photos is a leap forward. The days of inflated agents fees are over, well done house network.
Daniel Williams saved £5955 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great service, saved a packet and sold my house. Thanks
Iestyn Davies saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We went with house network to save money as they are so much cheaper than any other estate agent, so we were expecting to have to compromise. We couldn't have been more wrong!!! They were amazing from start to finish, always professional, great communication and very friendly. Our viewers always commented on their quick and great service. We sold our house in less than 2 weeks! I will be reccomending house network to everyone!
Mr & Mrs Parsons saved £1847 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I decided to use Housenetwork as their fees were so low and have been more than happy with my experience. Toni, my contact has been absolutely brilliant. My property was advertised within 48 hours and I was more than happy with the photos displayed (35 photos which is way more than any other estate agent takes). My property sold within 24 hours and even went to bids, where Toni guided me through the experience professionally. The process was rather stressful as the chain that we were in was quite long. but Toni communicated with us all the way through and tried to make the process as stress free as possible. I would not hesitate to use Housenetwotk again and would recommend them to everyone.
Catherine Clover saved £7350 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Saved myself a bundle of DOSH - why go anywhere else?
Alan Sharman saved £2100 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A competent and efficient service at a fraction of what traditional high street estate agents charge.
Mr Geoffrey David Stevens and Mrs Jenny Stevens saved £3450 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have no hesitation in recommending Housenetwork. The photographs were of extremely high quality and the speed in which our house went live on all the main property websites was excellent. Having access to everything on line, including our HIP was great. Our account manager was always available to speak to or email and he was always on top of things. The approach to setting up and confirming viewings by phone and email was very efficient and having access to feedback direct from viewers was extermely useful. Overall Housenetwork proved excellent value for money.
Mr Andrew and Catherine Rollings saved £8400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I thought overall House Network were excellent and professional from start to finish. I was given a specific case handler for my sale and purchase of properties. Any queries I had, I was able to contact this person or a member of their team who were equally professional and efficient 7 days a week, unlike other solicitors where you can only contact them monday to friday. One of the other reasons that i was impressed with House Network was that you could track your sale or purchase online and were able to constantly keep yourself updated with the progress, they give you all the information you need such as, how many queries they have requested, how many are answered when contracts are exchanging etc. Along with this they also text you whenever any milestone has been reached. My main reason for going with House Network was the price they quoted me for the sale and purchase of my properties. Overall i saved over £1500 by not going with a local estate agent and in my opinion i received a better service. The website they created for my sale of house was excellent. There were no limit of how many photos you could have for your house, they created a panoramic 3D colour footage of several rooms and all with floor plans. With House Network, on viewings they will contact you to say they have a viewing and will then liase with you when you would prefer for the buyer to visit. I got great feedback from people where they said they preferred to be shown around by the owner of the house as they felt it was more personable and all the questions they had got answered there and then. After each visit of a would be buyer, you were then able to go back on line and see their response to see what they thought of your property. This gave you a good insight to see what people liked and if there was anything you could to improve your property to gain a sale. I will definitely be telling my friends and family about House Network if they are to ever move and I will certainly be using them again if I move again.
Mr Barry & Mrs Stephanie Cole saved £1905 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent , friendly and professional staff at all times. Very good at returning emails and phone calls promptly. We would have no hesitation in recommending house network to friends. Also think of the money you save!
Mrs C Riley saved £3937 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is the second time we have sold a property through Housenetwork. The customer service is very good with viewings and offers coming via Housenetwork in the same way as they would via a high street estate agent - but at a fraction of the cost. Also we found that the advertising coverage on the internet via Housenetwork was far wider than our local agents which was an important feature for us. We got a good price for the property and from advertising to moving out was exactly 6 months, a timescale we thought was excellent in the current economic climate.
Walter Midgley saved £4125 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
No-one could match the brilliant service of House Network and the value for money was superb. We expected our unusual house to be a long time selling but in fact the House Network system of on-line marketing brought us a buyer within a week. I was delighted to have editorial control over photos and general description. No nonsensical phrases like "deceptively spacious" or "comprises of" for our brochure.
Graham Cole saved £6015 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great service and a great price, I would definitely recommend to friends.
Heather Sharman saved £2010 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network are a low cost selling option but with a first class selling service. I was impressed with your speed of reply and the control we had using the personal webpage. Overall I am delighted with the personal service given by Gemma and would recommend your services to others. Cost was the big motivator but I haven't been disappointed with the service. Having said that I don't want to move for some time as the experience is a bit stressful. Good communication by yourselves helped keep this to a minimum.
Christopher Peter Tucker saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The cost savings were fantastic - on our sale price one agent quoted nearly £9k commission. Photographs and floor plan excellent. Overall a really good service which I would use again. Your email confirmation system for viewings is in my opinion the single most outstanding improvement on the rather poor service from conventional High Street estate agents.
Chris Dunnett saved £6488 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We can't fault the service from Housenetwork. The service was better than I could have expected and half the price of conventional estate agents. The presentation of our property on the website was excellent, particularly the virtual tour and the addition of the floor plan was very good. The e-mail up dates we got for viewings and feedback was excellent and the ability to see how many people were viewing our page was great too. Arranging viewings was so easy as you were able to have us and the viewer on the line at the same time. Overall we are happy and pleased we used Housenetwork and would reccomend them to anyone wishing to sell there house.
Mr C Williams saved £1725 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
When a friend and I searched for an online estate agent last June, we looked at every ad and we checked how they functioned comparatively. In the end, Housenetwork seemed to be the most promising. As soon as I got in touch and paid the first payment, the staff were actively working for me within the next 24 hours. The property description was incorporated into the photo album and floorplan which their staff member prepared and within days, the site was active. I feel certain that I got as much attention as any local agency could have produced and the house site looked much better than those of local agents with more information and a much better layout of details for those searching online for properties. I would recommend Housenetwork to anyone in preference to using local estate agents. The experience has been so favorable that I am activiely promoting their skills to neighbours and friends. Best of all, they sold my house efficiently and within three months, the buyer arrived who has exchanged contracts and will be moving in within weeks.
Emily Wilkinson saved £10125 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you very much for all the help you gave us with selling our house. We found the service excellent and we had very good feedback from potential purchasers who had seen the house on the website. They felt that your pictures and description were very accurate and did not give misleading information as many traditional estate agents photos and descriptions do. The service we had was always helpful and courteous. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to other people. We also feel that it is a very good value service that you provide. Very many thanks.
Mr Robin Kinahan & Jennifer saved £6225 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service, well worth opting to give it a shot and pay up front rather than pay the extortionate fees of a local estate agent. Thank you House Network - you have saved us a fortune!!
Mr Paul & Mrs Claire Bates saved £3750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We can't fault the service from Housenetwork. The service was better than I could have expected and half the price of conventional estate agents. Dean was brilliant. The presentation of our property on the website was excellent, particularly the virtual tour and the addition of the floor plan was very good. The e-mail up dates we got for viewings and feedback was excellent and the ability to see how many people were viewing our page was great too. Arranging viewings was so easy as you were able to have us and the viewer on the line at the same time. The house was sold in 5 weeks with 3 interested parties. What more can we say. Thanks and we'll be using you next time, and we've told all our friends about you.
Mr Lloyd & Mrs Tanya East saved £1631 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This service was definitely very good value for money and very professional.
Samantha Wakefield saved £3150 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Housenetwork to my friends and family. They provided a first-class service in a really difficult market. I can't fault their efficiency and friendliness. My instructions were always carried out promptly and after viewings I had feedback every time. As the advertisement is placed on RightMove, I had plenty of viewings and got my sale. Very pleased.
Mrs A Mobberley saved £2235 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network were easy to communicate with, efficient in their dealings and had a practical no-nonsense approach. Because I paid up front, at no point during the process did I feel under pressure to accept an offer or do something to make a quick sell - it was always my decision. Saying that I always felt there was support and advice to help me make decisions.
Mr Robert Sosteric & Mrs Sue Day saved £3675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was really happy with the whole package. My flat sold quickly for a good price, and I found the agents very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Many thanks indeed.
Lucy Charlotte Manning saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
My wife and I could not believe how simple and uncomplicated the whole process could be. Very efficient system of viewing arrangements and totally on the ball. The details of our house the photos and the video on the internet were second to none. We were inundated with people wanting to view. And all for under £700. Have recomended House network to all our friends.
Mr and Mrs James Archer saved £6750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
My wife and I would like to thank your company for the curtious and efficient way you handled the sale of our property. We have been guided through the entire process in a friendly and patient manner, it has been so refreshing to find a company who return calls when promised, and the charges are unbelieveable. We saved £4,000 plus by using The House Network. We have recommended you to four people and one has sold already. Finally we would like to say thank you to GEMMA for all her help. Many thanks and kind regards
Pauline and Peter Gandy saved £4575 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I thought your service was fantastic. I used Housenetwork to sell my mum's house even though she doesn't own a computer - it wasn't a problem. The house sold for the asking price within a week. Special thanks to Gemma who was really helpful and offered very sound advice.
Joan Hodgson saved £4103 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
After trying to sell my property last year with a couple of High Street Estate Agency unsuccessfully. A work colleague suggested I try House Network. Last August I contact House Network and haven't looked back since. I can't fault their service. I have been kept informed the whole way either by text, e-mail, telephone or letters. If I have any questions/queries I can contact my dedicated agents Gemma & Seema (Solicitor) who have been most helpful. I would highly recommend House Network to my family and friends. Selling your house on the Internet is definitely the way to go... THANK YOU House Network for providing an Efficient Professional Service.
Alison M Clarke saved £2610 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have been extremely pleased with the service. The website and photos were excellent and we sold our house in a week. We were updated with feedback from viewings within 24 hours and saved nearly £4000 in estate agent fees!
Mr Ronald & Mary Jones saved £2730 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was very impressed by the service that I received from House Network. We had previously been using a high street estate agent who were charging us 1.25% commission upon sale of our property, but we were not getting much buyer interest through them and they seemed to soon lose interest in selling our property. After switching to House Network we suddenly seemed to get a huge amount of interest in the property and soon managed to secure a buyer. Our account manager Gregg did a fantastic job in trying to get the best possible price for our property, and overall the whole experience went smoothly and painlessly. I loved the fact that I could log in online regularly to check how many new 'hits' my house had received and to see feedback from viewers. On top of all this, we calculate that we saved ourselves £2,765 on what we would have had to pay the high street estate agent! We will definitely consider using House Network again in the future, and will be recommending to our friends!
Mitch Warner saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Its definitely worth having the sign as thats how our buyers found our property. They viewed on Thursday, made an offer on Sunday, contacted solicitor on Monday and surveyor came Friday. We were out of our house within 4 weeks and now on way to New Zealand. It was a nice surprise only paying under £1,000 in total inc HIP, photos, sale etc - rather than £3,000 from local agent. thanks again.
Christine and Alan saved £2715 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Much better valued then normal estate agents. Little effort of your own; can save you thousands of pounds.
Hirji Solanki saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The service you offer is excellent as you do everything that a local estate agent would do except charging their level of fee. Your staff are excellent, very professional and approachable both on the telephone and personally re valuation, photos etc. The website is well produced and I have nothing but praise for the way in which the sale of my house was conducted. Well done. kind regards
Mary Adams saved £5738 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A very efficient and professional service from start to finish which saved us the usual exorbitant agents' fees. I recommend house network to everyone and, will never use a high street agent again!
Ross Williams saved £3900 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very happy with House Network, from the initial instruction through to the sale. We felt that we were kept informed, feedback was obtained quickly, and when we did get an offer, we felt that Gemma did everything she could to assist us in negotiations and obtain the best possible price for us. Absolutely fantastic, we would not hesitate to recommend and we would without a doubt use you again.
Tim Rawden saved £4140 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We would not hesitate to recommend Housenetwork. We were always able to talk to our dedicated agent, either by phone or email. We were given real involvement in how the property was marketed. We were often amazed at the poor information provided on properties for sale which were being marketed by other estate agents yet their fees could be as much as 3% of the sale value. We believe Housenetwork offers a great service at affordable fees. We would definitely use again if we move in the future.
Nigel Brown saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Why would anyone want to use a high street estate agent, housenetwork did an exellent job in marketing my home and I had viewers who were genuinely interested in the house rather than the numbers game applied by the high street. All communications by phone and email were good. I highly recommend housenetwork to be used to sell your house, it goes onto rightmove and just wait for the calls, perfect.
James Nelson saved £4725 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found Housenetwork to be fast and efficient, keeping me informed of progress immediately. I achieved a sale within 2 weeks of marketing and they provided the best coverage on the Rightmove site that I saw amongst all the local exceptionally more expensive estate agents. Keep up the good work Housenetwork.
Heather Taylor saved £2010 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Would definately recommend house network, fantastic value for money and I felt we had more control of the sale as we showed people round and less interference that you would from a local estate agent. We liked the web site as you can monitor how many people have viewed your site and feedback is viewed there. Great to get to the point of moving and not have to give £5000 out in payments as we would have done to any other estate agent.
Tracey & Matthew Moore saved £2985 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A very efficient and professional operation from start to finish which saved us the usual exorbitant agents' fees. Our impression has been that Housenetwork has been much more effective particularly in gaining viewings from people not-local to the area, eg from London. This is perhaps a very good reason for not relying on a local estate agent.
Mr and Mrs K. from Weymouth saved £2100 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent! Professional, organised, on the ball - all that and cost effective! We're so glad we used House Network.
Mr & Mrs Forrester saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very good, professional service. I will never use one of the rip-off high street estate agents to sell a property again. I sold in less than 6 weeks and saved over £2000 by using House network over Halifax or Your move.
Mr Jason Ellis saved £2475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We thought the marketing of our house was excellent - very good photos and plenty of them. The booking of appointments was very efficient and the feedback prompt. Overall, very good value - we would definitely use you again!
Tony Harris & Hilary Harris saved £5925 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
After several months of trying to sell our house with a traditional local agent we switched to housenetwork.co.uk. We didn't regret it, we had more viewings in the next 4 weeks than in the previous 4 months and we sold our house. The whole process was handled in a friendly, professional and efficient way by housenetwork.co.uk - and much, much cheaper than the traditional agent :)
Mr & Mrs Moore saved £2685 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very professional service, puts many estate agents to shame. Well Done, I will recommend you to all and sundry. thanks.
Mike Kimber saved £2850 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I am extremely happy with your sevice, the staff and the value for money. It cannot compare in any way to the service I was receiving from local estate agents. I would and do recommend you without hesitation to anyone who is thinking of selling their home.
Denise Wilkins saved £4770 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Fantastic service sold our house within 1 week and saved ourselves a packet on agent fees. The House Network team make it so easy and stress free we would highly recommend to anyone and have been doing so, we also used their Conveyance team and they are also excellent and are highly efficient and would also recommend.
Mr & Mrs Morgan saved £7163 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent value for money, very professional. Website was great, communication was top notch. Ethical standards were perfect, unlike every other estate agent I've ever worked with. Our house was under offer in less than a week, at substantially more than the asking price. Very highly recommended!
Ben and Charis Elsworth saved £4425 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We had tried selling our house using the traditional estate agent route, but we found that many of the viewers were not looking for a house in our village, but instead were looking for a house in the city. As a result we did not get an offer on the house. With housenetwork we felt that buyers were more self selecting. We owned a family home which was very suitable for busy working parents- easy to maintain and near facilities. We felt that the sort of people looking for such a property did not have the time to visit traditional estate agents, but would really only find the time to identify suitable properties online outside traditional shop opening times. Housenetwork provided us with a very efficient and low cost way of selling our home. All of the viewers directed to us through Housenetwork were looking for our sort of house in the village. We established a sale very quickly ( October 2009) despite well advertised slow activity in the housing market. Housenetwork link the seller to a property manager who remains the point of contact throughout the sale. You are not passed from pillar to post but get a very efficient service as a result of this. When we requested an activity, it was acted on immediately and reports of those activities sent electronically to the sellers email. We are delighted with the service.
Mr & Mrs Richard Leishman saved £2475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network provides a low cost alternative to high street estate agents. The staff are professional and the marketing matches the standards provided by any estate agent I have used in the past. My belief is that houses in the current market place are sold by the accessibility of the agent, the quality of the marketing and exposure on large websites such as Rightmove and Findaproperty. House Network provides all of this. The cost premium high street estate agents charge for a face-to-face conversation and a shop window advert is no longer worth it. Furthermore, when I did want to amend the marketing description on my property, House Network had the update on their website within minutes and on Rightmove the next day.
Paul Mansbridge saved £2130 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We chose Housenetwork following quite a bit of research. Whilst the excellent value offered provided the main draw, we also felt that the details shown on both their own website and the Rightmove property portal were superior to any other estate agent, whether local or national. The staff that we spoke to were unfailingly polite and helpful. Some people may think that not having someone to 'show' their home is a downside, but I think that no-one knows your home better than you do. I would certainly recommend them to anyone who was thinking of moving home.
Mrs Deborah Telkman & Mr Colin Telkman saved £4575 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have bought and sold 5 properties in my life and it's generally a very stressful and expensive business. House Network on the other hand made the whole experience much more bearable and cost a fraction of the cost. Firstly they took incredible photos which complimented the house and helped to encourage a steady flow of viewers, no time wasters and all followed up with feedback. I would thoroughly recommend House Network to everyone.
Elaine Ellis saved £6900 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job at such a reasonable fee! Our sales information was excellent, many of our viewers commented on the high standards and attention to detail. They also commented on how professional the service was when they were making apointments. We were impressed by the excellent levels of communication and also how quickly and efficiently everything was put in place, from putting together the photos to the HIP survey. We were always informed of what was going on- who was viewing, when and also recieved feedback on each viewing which helped. I never felt the need to chase anything up as you were in regular contact to make sure everything was going smoothly. I've already recommended house network to several people, one of whom has also just sold their house with you and is equally impressed.
Mr Matthew & Mrs Audrey Soars saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
My experience of House Network has been great. For under £800 of fees I have sold my existing house and paid for my agent and legal fees. I obtained quotes from other residential agents for selling my house and they told me the fee would be £5,000 to £6,000. For showing around 20+ people, it works out at a cost of about £200 per showing for 30 mins each. High street residential agents offer very little added value in transactions today. They are unregulated and offer few qualifications. House Network met all my criteria and did it all for a reasonable price. I will definitely be returning to House Network to sell my house in the future. My experience of using high street agents during the purchase of my new house means that I will never use them again.
Marcus Edwards saved £4275 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I am really pleased with the service from Housenetwork. We saved around £3,000 by using Housenetwork to sell our house. This is all money we can use to pay stamp duty etc on our new house. All of the team at HN have always been very helpful and pleasant, from the man who came to take the photos to our account manager. I liked the fact we were in control of which photos were used to sell the house and the price. There is a reasonable amount of organisation required on your part to make this work, like being in the house for viewings (nobody has keys). The only disappointment was in viewers not turning up, however this is no fault of HN. I also liked the fact we did not have "ghost" viewings set up by an Estate Agent to make you think there were viewers who did not exist. There is no motivation on HN part to in any way to mislead you. You basically cut out the normal Estate Agent lies which is great. Thanks for a fantastic job all round. I will be recommending your service to everyone I know who sells a house.
Georgina Merryweather saved £3150 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have sold seven homes over the last 30 years. We have found your services the best of all the Estate Agents we have used in the past and will be recommending your services to our friends. I have found all of you staff helpful and friendly.
Eve Mandry saved £9675 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very impressed with the service you provided and the web site for our property. Everything from start to finish was excellent. I have already recommended you to all my friends and family and i say this with all honestly - I will never sell my house with any other agent again. Thank you for making every thing so easy, we sold our house in 3 weeks and from our hips to our solicitors you made it a pleasant experience. Thank You
Mr & Mrs Doyle saved £1950 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
My account manager, Gemma Simmons, has been wonderful. Having endured many months on this awful market and had a few offers come and go, it was so reassuring to talk to someone who obviously knew her stuff and didn't talk like an estate agent but a competent advisor. She came up with good marketing ideas and was happy to tell me what was going on in the bigger picture. I felt her advice came from sound experience - which you can't always say about high street agents! She's always been quick to reply to emails and basically I'm very grateful for her input. The photographer who did my pictures was very pofessional, friendly and efficient, and I've found the Housenetwork service easy to use and very, very good value. And what's more I've actually sold my house! Thank you everyone.
Michelle saved £3900 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service. I very highly recommend housenetwork - you wont be disappointed, everything completed in record time - i was truly shocked but very pleased. Many many thanks to ALL your excellent staff.
A great service and excellent value - who can say that about experiences with Estate Agents?
Mr M Field & Sofia Field saved £6750 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would like to say a very big thank you to Housenetwork for the excellent service that we have received. Your team were efficient and helpful throughout the entire sales process. very good value for money overall and we would certainly recommend you to others. With best wishes
Dr Tina Harness saved £3585 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I have already recommended your site to many family members and friends. Had no hesitation in recommending you.
Mr & Mrs Marlow saved £3345 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were so impressed with Housenetwork. Very professional and so modern. You make traditional estate agents look very old fashioned and slow. I loved having control over my site and the large number of photographs you take really help to market properties to their full potential. Best of all is the price - we saved around £2000 by using your company. We would definitely use you again! Also, Housenetwork conveyancing has been equally good. Again, so professional and very informative throughout. Having an online account made the whole process less stressful as it was easy to logon and see progress, rather than endless phonecalls and messages. Thank you so much for making this move the easiest one we've had.
Mr Ian and Mrs Helen Partridge saved £2175 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
May I thank your super efficient organisation. Your website was very easy to use; your office staff always acted very promptly; your agent who visited the house took the details and photos just as ably as any High Street agent - all this for a super low price.
John Gooding saved £8775 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you housenetwork, you beat the high street estate agents hands down! Look forward to dealing with you in the future, great service and communications and fantastic overall package. Will definitely be recommending to everyone I speak to about houses. Thanks again for such an excellent service at such a fantastic price!
Andrew Herft saved £5625 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
THE ONLY WAY TO SELL YOUR PROPERTY. PROFESSIONAL AND GOOD VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY.
Barrie Baker saved £6450 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We had an offer of virtually asking price within two weeks. I've also saved at least £5000 in fees with Housenetworks fixed fee over a standard commission. I really don't know why you would use anyone else. I will only use Housenetwork in future. Many thanks.
David Bullamore saved £5370 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Fantastic Service. Easy to use. Website available 24/7. Helpful Staff. I would thoroughly recommend. Thank you.
Melanie Hutchinson saved £2115 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
After deciding to move house just as the 'credit crunch' was starting, we knew it was going to be difficult - but the support from HouseNetwork made light work of it. I had been unsure at the start of what service we could get, but the viewers kept coming in, the website was really useful in looking at the feedback we received from them and we received the same level of support expected of a 'normal' estate agency. We would never go back to using a High Street Agent again - and the money that we've saved means that I can afford to have a new bathroom in my new home!
Joanne Barraclough saved £2400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Overall a great service received - we loved the online tracking system which informed us of brochure viewing stats, details of new viewers and it was great to be able to read the comments from viewers post appointment just by logging into our account.
Miss Julia Robinson & Mr Kevin Beasley saved £2250 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you so much for your support throughout the sale of our property, your knowledge and advice enabled us to do something which we wouldn't have dreamed of. We also sold the property quite quickly at a time when house sales were difficult to achieve!
Karen Steel saved £3075 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Negotiating a sale price with the buyer was made easy by House Network's proactive and swift communications between the parties.
Wesley O'Brien saved £2130 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great value, kept us informed right from the very start - would use again, very professional and quick to respond...Many thanks, keep up the good work.
Mr and Mrs Haines saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Why would you want to use a traditional Estate Agent? Housenetwork provided a very good service at a fair price.
Mr & Mrs Thorne saved £6000 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We will recommend this service to everyone we know, you get a great service, better than most on offer from High Street agents and at a fraction of their costs.
Stephen Chaston saved £2355 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I sold my house using Housenetwork who gave me excellent service. Far better than the High Street Estate Agent we used to buy our house who would have charged me five times more.
Malcolm John Young saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was impressed with the range of promotional services offered by housenetwork, and the flexibility and degree to which I could control and change the overall package. Selling through housenetwork enabled me to nationally 'showcase' my property to its best advantage for exceptional value, especially compared with the limited and expensive services offered by the high street estate agents. I would highly recommend selling through Housenetwork.
Deborah Monshin saved £1725 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network gave me a great service at a reasonable price and I am so pleased with them that I have already recommended them to a friend. One aspect I particularly valued was the ability to have more input and the feeling of more control over the finished advertising than with high street estate agents in the past - as I was able to email my own descriptions and pictures to appear on the rightmove site, [ after being approved by House Network ]. Well done House Network. I am convinced that your kind of service is the future of house selling. Thank you
Kathy Morgan saved £6225 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I thought House Network was and is amazing. No Estate Agent percentage - Need I say More??? I was extremely impressed with the photos of my property and the professional manner that viewings were booked. There were 3 other properties for sale in my cul de sac with "Traditional Estate Agents", but our house sold 1st.
Suzanne Dobbins & Andrew Dobbins saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We were very impressed with the service provided by House Network, so much so that we have marketed another property with them. They give good advice, are responsive and viewers also commented on their professionalism.Terry Wakefield & Kay Meakin saved £2070 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent value for money... a service I would highly recommend.
Mr R Page & Miss A Hudson saved £2700 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We would absolutely recommend House Network to anyone who may mention they are intending to put their house up for sale. There is nothing I can suggest to improve the service that is offered. After perspective buyers looked around our property within a day or so feedback was available on the internet, which the team had gathered. This quick turn around is invaluable and indeed informs you if you have a potential buyer; they are questioned on their thoughts of the property, so this provides useful feedback. In terms of progressing with the sale, the team took care of the negotiations to reach an agreed sale price, and have since always been at hand to help with any other inquiries in relation to the sale right up to the exchange of contract. All of the above and for a small price! It is my pleasure to provide this feedback to you, and we will be back in the future when we move on again!!
Claire and Andrew Hobbs saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would strongly recommend House Network as they advertise on all the major websites and their photos, floor plan and virtual tour are the best I've seen. Their fees are very good in comparison to estate agents who don't do much more for their money as far as I can see. Most people register with sites like Rightmove and receive updates and therefore are aware when a new properties come on the market before they are contacted by the estate agents. I would definately use them again if I were selling my home again.
Mr & Mrs Bonadies saved £5625 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We would like to thank Dean for his tireless work in our House sale. House Network are the best estate agents I have ever dealt with. The constant feedback and information and professionalism make House Network the only choice if you want to sell your house. And that is before you realise how much money you will save.
Duncan Bray saved £4200 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great service - and incredibly, fantastic website presentation for the small fee.
Mr Michael Potts & Ms H Stocking saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Having worked briefly for two local estate agents - I was determined to do things differently. We used a local estate agent for the first three months of marketing the house. We did most of the viewings, took the photographs for the colour brochures (which we were charged extra for) and wrote most of the text! We felt that they didn't justify a fee of nearly £20,000. I was then recommended House Network by a friend who had nothing but praise for them. They were so helpful and professional we felt totally confident in selling our house through them at this difficult time. Our house was featured on the main property sites on the internet as they had been with our previous agent, therefore reaching the same prospective viewers. Appointments were always convenient, and followed up with an email to confirm, then in case we forgot it was followed up by another email nearer the time of the appointment. We were able to access the feedback from viewings and also request changes to the house details at any time, we were designated a really helpful and friendly guy to oversee our sale and any enquiries we had. But best of all we were able to save tens of thousands of pounds. THANK YOU HOUSE NETWORK
Mr & Mrs Y. Dorset saved £13800 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork worked for me, I think if you are prepared put the effort in you will save alot of money. I sold during a bad market and was worried about the whole process. House Net work did the hard bits and I did the nicer parts. We all want to sack the agent to save money but with HouseNetWork its the best of both, they do the hard technical part and I did the nice part of showing my home off, and I know my home better than anyone else.
Nick Troth saved £4050 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork offer a very simple and cost effective service that is a credible alternative to the traditional Estate Agent. Housenetworks agents are extremely effective when it matters and act as an essential communication link between all parties in your sale - a value that should not be discounted!
William Wade saved £1845 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
The service was excellent and made selling our house very easy. This is definitely the way ahead for selling property and house network is the way to do it.
Paul Gill & Katerina Kirkman saved £2325 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would have no hesitation in recommending housenetwork, they were always prompt, courteous and honest.
Mr & Mrs Oakley saved £4575 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Positive service throughout. The telephone nature of the service did not provide any problems and had a great benefit...the price!
Mr Costello saved £2333 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
A professional, curteous and efficient service that knew how to put the customer at the centre of the process. Many of my friends will consider this internet estate agent in the future.
Jane Courtney saved £3263 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
After selling a property using an internet sales company for the first time I would certainly never go to a high street agent in future. We saved thousands of pounds in agents fees by using Housenetwork and had plenty of viewers by being advertised on Right Move. I would also highly recommend taking them up on the quote for conveyancing as again we saved money and with a no sale no fee policy our solicitor did in two weeks what the other solicitors took 2 months to do, and the service was the best I have experienced from any Solicitor with regular updates and online tracking.
Susan Dann & Barry Dann saved £2850 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Your service really is the future of Estate Agents. Excellent service 11 out of 10!
Joao Paulo Guimaraes saved £3300 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I wanted to leave a few words of feedback on my experience with your company. I have just accepted an offer on my property that was marketed through Housenetwork. Although not completed yet, I would just like to say that the quality of the marketing material and photos, the speed and quality of the client service and the general professional approach to my sale is far superior to any experience i have ever had with a high street estate agency.That is even before you consider the value for money, representing a saving to me of over £2000. I will certainly be using Housenetwork for any future moves and will be urging my friends to do the same.
Alex saved £3443 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have recommended you to our daughter who is using you to market her property. A friend of ours recommended you to us........ and so it goes on........ although good news doesn't always travel as fast as bad news, the good news of House Network is spreading. We have been delighted with the service provided by House Network, the initial contact - the great price - the photos and description of our house. It was so good to have that input in the narrative and so many photos that we could update through the website. We found the Clients part of the website very helpful. You have given us a much better service than the local estate agents, that people are always moaning about but they keep paying them shedloads of money - I don't understand it! We have also used your Conveyancing department and have been equally delighted with their service. They were very helpful in processing the legal side of things, answering the questions that we raised and communicated so easily by phone, text, email and post - excellent and always friendly, nothing seemed too much trouble.
Tim Mason saved £4500 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Apart from being a lot cheaper than the high street, I found that housenetwork provided a better service too. You could see how many people were looking at your house and photos; you get lots of photos on sites like rightmove.co.uk; you can also arrange viewings outside normal estate agency hours e.g. weekends and evenings; The photos taken were very professional as was the telephone support from my account manager and other staff at the office. I would recommend housenetwork.co.uk to friends and family and would use them again.
Meghan Pullen saved £2625 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork really made selling our house easy. The online client area keeps you in touch with how many hits your house has had and tells you when appointments are made to view your house and gives you feedback from buyers after viewing. The staff are all friendly and very helpful, a pleasure to deal with. I was wary of an internet website selling property thinking that they must be a bit dodgy and I bet there are hidden costs that they havent told me about . How wrong was I, Housenetwork was the best and most reasonably priced estate agent I have ever used and I have recommended them to all of my friends. I will never use anyone else other than Housenetwork from now on. Just in case you were wondering , I dont work or have shares in the company they are just that good !!!
Graeme White saved £2550 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
• House Network are the professionals when it comes to selling houses.
• They know exactly what the market is doing and how to sell your house appropriately and accordingly.
• House Network is easy accessible via the internet or by phone. Your details are quickly put on their site and 'Rightmove' within 24hrs. (in my experience local estate agents would have took upto 2 weeks to market my property)
• No expensive estate agent fees. You can pay just a one off amount at the beginning, and a one off payment at the sold end, and thats exactly what I did, no other fees what so ever.
• They assess and value you house accordingly at the 'correct' market value. I have used other estate agents before and they have all been very slow to respond with any market activity.
You would be daft not to use them, as I will definitely use them again for the future.
Mrs A Smith Lincolnshire saved £3975 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Very good value for money and a friendly, professional service.
Mrs Sarah Dawson and Mr Andrew Dawson saved £2700 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thanks to you all at housenetwork - excellent, professional service. Our house was on the market for a year during which time we had about 20 viewings and 12 offers - all handled very smoothly and professionally by your team. Would definitely recommend your service. As well as the obvious bonus of being considerably cheaper than high street estate agents we felt in control & not in the hands of two-faced agents showing people around the house we know & love & encouraging the buyers to lower offers. Hope we won't have to move again, but would come back to you if we do.
MRS ALISON MARTIN saved £1973 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was more than happy with House Network and if I ever moved again I would always contact you. I would also advise anyone I knew who was planning a move to contact you. I was happy with how quick and easy it all was and also how you could view your site any time and make any adjustments you felt were required. It was also good to see how many people were showing interest in the property. I think House Network is definately value for money which can be trusted. Sometimes when thing are seen as low priced you think you may not get the same service but with you this is defiantely not the case.
I also used House network conveyancing and I was also extremely satisfied with the level of service and effieciency in which was received. All round I would recommend House Network again to anyone I know.
Mrs Sarah Knott saved £1785 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have had our house for sale with Housenetwork and for a period of time with an established national estate agents - we consistently had more viewings through Housenetwork. An excellent alternative - we saved nearly £5000 on agency fee and would recommend this method of selling to anyone.
Mr Keith & Mrs Louise Martin saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We have been very impressed with the overall service provided. The package purchased to include a Hips survey were all undertaken in a professional timely manner. The photograph portfolio and property was excellent with flexibility for any changes desired. Our house sold very quickly and we would highly recommend the House Network property services.
Mr Tyson saved £5475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thanks very much for handling our sale smoothly and efficiently. Communication was great and the service represents excellent value for money.
Mr Mark Riordan & Rachel Dorrington saved £4650 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
This is the only way to put your property on the market, basically. Internet shopping is 'today's' medium and House buying is just the next step. The quality of the photo's and the 'tours' gave the potential buyers virtually everything they could want to see without actually viewing. This increased the percentage of buyers being more likely to make an offer and less chance of any unforseen elements providing disappointments. Hence, our very quick sell. Traditional Estate Agents are just realising they need to up their act. Which is long overdue. A big thank you once again.
Mr David Dance & Mrs Janet Dance saved £4125 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
House Network fulfilled all its promises and provides an excellent service. It also offers great value for money, particularly with the thorough and comprehensive site visit which produced a vast range of photographs to show the property to the full.
Mr John Dakin saved £2625 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great experience - much cheaper than the established high street estate agents but with the same excellent exposure on all the major internet portals and excellent photos and 360 views. I'd recommend this company to anyone looking to get people through the door if you are able to show people round yourself and save thousands on estate agent fees!
Mr Patrick Freeman saved £4755 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork is quite simply a fantastic service - it is competitively priced, and the delivery is 100% customer-focussed. If you want your property marketed with competence, and you want a 'you-centered 'service - then I cannot recommend Housenetwork strongly enough.
Mr Anthony Jackson & Richard Douglas Rowlands saved £840 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Housenetwork have been outstanding; proof that you don't always get what you pay for - in this case you get a lot more. We wouldn't use anybody else in the future. Many thanks for your help
Mr & Mrs Hampson saved £3525 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I was very impressed with the quality of the photos taken and I definitely think they helped to sell the house. The house had been on the market with a local estate agents for 4 months before I put it with Housenetwork and we then had a buyer within 2 weeks of it going on whom we sold to it. I have recommended it to many friends who are trying to sell their properties at this difficult time.
Stella Briggs saved £2400 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We found the staff to be highly professional and efficient in all aspects of the sale and this included the conveyancing; all of this at a cost much less than we would have paid to an estate agent and a solicitor! Many thanks
Howard Jones & Heather Jones saved £4200 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Amazing, why would you go to a high street agent? Madness could be the only reason, that and a very expensive cup of coffee! A thoroughly professional service from start to finish. The photo's were fantastic and the fact that you as a seller can determine which photos you would like to have on your properties details are an added bonus, also the fact that you can choose what photos prospective purchasers can view first is great, these facts aren't publicised enough on your site and it's these little things that really matter. Promoting how versatile the site is for vendors and how it gives them more control over selling their property would really boost Housenetwork, after all selling a house is about the vendor! Response times were fantastic and there was never any hard sell about anything, the advice we were given was spot on! We shall now be spreading the Housenetwork word! THANK YOU!
Angela Langley saved £3600 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Thank you House Network for helping us sell our house for considerably less than any other estate agent in our area (Southampton, Hampshire) offered. We would have paid a minimum of £2,700 for the cheapest estate agents' quoted to us when valuations were carried out. The man who came to do the measurements & photos was friendly & informative and suggested we send him some exterior shots taken on a sunny day (as it was raining when he came), which he prompted uploaded to the site within 24 hours receipt. The website was easy to use & we liked the fact that we could change the order / remove pictures, etc.
We actually enjoyed showing people round our home - after all we know it better than an estate agent could & just had to remember to not talk too much. It was also nice being able to hand over the keys to our buyers & wish them luck in their new home - so the two bits of work that you have to do which would normally have been done by the estate agent actually added to the experience. Would definately recommend you to others.
Mrs Grace Ingram saved £2700 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Excellent service from start to finish and amazing value for money compared to other estate agents. We would definately use you if we move again. Thanks very much.
Mrs Ruth Reaney & Mr Ian Reaney saved £4313 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I found the price for selling the house very competitive compared to high street estate agents. Although I am not very computer literate i found using the site easy. I got alot of possitive comments about the pictures of the house on the site. The arrangements for viewing - very efficient.
Mrs Westney saved £2475 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Great value for money.
Mr McNab saved £2595 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
From the initial contact with Gregg at House Network, I was impressed. The courtesy and efficiency displayed were something i had not encountered with estate agents in the past. The low price made me hesitant at first, but there was no need - how do you folks do it? People say you get what you pay for, with House Network you get much more. The assessor that visited our property took about 40 pictures and we used all of these on the site - the floor plans and rotating images in the kitchen and lounge were also a brilliant feature. Our house sold for nigh on the asking price within a few weeks and we were helped out at all times during the process. The HouseNetwork team deserve all the success they achieve - if moving house is supposed to be one of the most stressful times, then you can be sure that House Network will contribute considerably to reducing that stress. Wholeheartedly recommended.
Ian saved £2775 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you all on your business model, the design of the website and the helpfulness of all staff. I tell all my friends that Housenetwork are the only option in town, and will definitely use you in future.
Mr J W & Mrs M A Heath saved £8250 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
I would just like to submit the following testimonial regarding your services. After using estate agents in the past to buy properties from, I have always found their service to be particularly poor. Never returning phone calls, dragging their feet and just generally being in the way and slowing the whole process down.
I came across House Network when we saw a property we wanted to view. I was very impressed from a buyers point of view as to how much info you took from me to ensure I was a genuine buyer and not a timewaster (in a very professional manner!) You were prompt with arranging my viewing and the same came to when we wanted to put an offer forward. From that point on I thought I would use you if we ever came to sell one of our properties...which we decided to do 3 weeks ago.
You arranged for Ian Atkinson to come round at a time to suit me to take photos & floor plans etc. He was on time, very polite and took masses of photos and floor plans and info for the site on the Saturday morning. It was all live by the Tuesday. As we opted against a "For Sale" sign and not being with any other agent, also being in the middle of November and at a time when we had just seen 5 interest rate increases, we never expected to see any viewings until after Christmas at the earliest.
The first viewing came two weeks later from a buyer who wasn't in a chain and was keen to move asap. She viewed our place on Saturday 1st Dec 07 and put an offer forward, which we were delighted with. Our buyer also commented as to how impressed she was with all of the info on the site and the photos and she felt as if she knew exactly what she was getting before she even walked through the door. It just goes to dispel any myths out there that the market is slowing and you won't sell before Christmas is a load of rubbish. If someone is in the market to buy a property and yours is the right one, Christmas is the last thing on someone's mind!
That's a 100% conversion rate and all for under £500 I can't thank you enough. I wish you every success for the future and look forward to using you again.

We just wanted to express our thanks to you and all the team, including Housenetwork Conveyancing for the work carried out with the sale of our property. We are so pleased with the service provided and the professional way in which it was carried out, from the website for the property, the contact from you with the viewings of the property and all the work done by the Conveyancing arm.
Housenetwork provides such excellent value for money and we have been recommending your company to all our friends, family and colleagues, so we hope this gets you many more customers.

I have found House Network to be the best service to come out of the internet! Inexpensive but with first class service!
Jackie Budd saved £4350 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
We just wanted to express our thanks to you for all your help with the sale of our flat. We were most impressed by your service from the visit of your photographer/agent, through your patience and support when we couldn't work the library computers, right up to the sale itself.
Kathryn and Richard Sanders saved £2790 (based on 1.5% agent commission)
Like most people I have only ever used a high street estate agent before when selling houses. My experience with HNW has changed that to the extent that I would never use one again. From my first contact I found all the staff to be efficient, professional, friendly and extremely helpful. The photographs and description for my house were prepared quickly and expertly. The option to view the site before it goes live is a great idea and the site itself is simple and easy to use and it looks great. The site contains masses of information which I found helpful, eg displaying the number of hits on the house and rooms and showing details of all the viewings and their feedback. Instead of having to ring an agent it was so easy just to keep up to date online and via e-mail. I also asked those viewing the property what they thought of the service and all were extremely impressed. Without a doubt if and when I come to sell my current house I will be contacting you again. The service you provide is an excellent one and coupled with the low price it is unbeatable. My thanks to all the staff at HNW for all your help in selling my house so quickly at what is not an easy time in the housing market. I have recommended you to anyone I know who is selling or considering selling their house and will continue to do so.

I would like to say how pleased I am that I marketed my current property through Housenetwork.co.uk. From the moment of making the initial enquiries right through to the receipt of an offer from a prospective buyer the service was impeccable. To be honest I was initially a bit reluctant to use an online agency as opposed to a high street one. This hesitancy was unwarranted. Housenetwork were courteous, professional, efficient and above all else great value for money. I know that the buyers were initially attracted by the excellent photos and virtual tour which was provided.
I would not consider using another agency in future. Oh and I would like to say a big thanks to Dean in particular who did a great job.
I just wanted to thank your company so much for the excellent service we have received and in particular from Sam. It is obviously a very tricky time in the market at the moment and Sam's hardwork, patience and professionalism has made a difficult move possible. She is also a pleasure to deal with and is always friendly and understanding.
Housenetwork offers a brilliant service. I cannot believe that anyone would still use conventional High Street estate agents when you get the same, if not better service from you at a fraction of the cost. It has to be the way forward. I hope the current market isn't causing you too many problems because I hope you go from strength to strength and I've started recommending you to all my friends, in fact I'm beginning to think I should be on your pay roll.
Thank you again and you can quote me on all of the above if you so wish.
We've just completed on our house sale and wanted to say thanks to the Housenetwork and to our account manager Katie for all your hard work, help and advice. Initially, having had no experience of selling on the internet, we were unsure if we were making the right decision not to use a conventional high street estate agent. However, the fact that we've sold our house so easily in such a difficult climate is testament to this method of marketing a property. The site was so detailed and had such high quality photos and plans that we felt when people came to view the property they already had a good idea of what to expect and this minimised timewasters! Many of the people who came to view the property also commented on the standard of the site and the professionalism of the housenetwork team. We also liked the amount of control we had, being able to view our account 24/7 which meant we didn't have to ring and pester to get feedback on viewings etc. We also used the HNW conveyancing team and our case handler was professional, communicative and dealt with everything extremely swiftly.
Many thanks again and best wishes for the future.
Jez and Tori
We would like to say a big thank you for all your help with our house sale. I will defiantely reccommend House Network to my friends.
Sharon & Pete
You have done it again for us - Sold for Asking price in one week - Exchanged (in 2 weeks) - Completion is on the 4th July and... we instructed you from Cyprus!!! ...AMAZING.
So a BIG thank you to you and all the Team at Housenetwork. Truly professional people and company and will just keep on recommending you.
Many Thanks again,
Mario and Julie
Just a quick note to say "thank you" for the EXCELLENT communication via both E - mail & phone with the people wishing to view my property...also the support by someone being @ the end of a phone if I have any questions !!
The buyer exchanged and completed last Friday at the agreed price so I wanted to thank you all for your help and to leave a testimonial. I got in touch with House Network after a bad experience with an incompetent and dishonest estate agent on the High Street. House Network had my house advertised on all the main websites in days with excellent photos. An offer was made within 10 days and we have just successfully completed. At all times the House Network staff gave me up to date information, were efficient and straight with me. I can recommend your service most highly and am amazed that you can offer it at such a reasonable price. All best wishes and a BIG THANKYOU
Dear House Network
After having successfully sold my house through your website, I felt I had to let you know that I could not praise your service high enough. The presentation was amazing, there being 37 photographs in all with the addition of a virtual tour which far exceeded anything that any other Estate Agent could offer, but which would have cost me at least £800 plus if I had chosen that option. Your office staff were incredibly on the ball arranging viewings & getting feedback which eventually led to a successful sale. The house was priced at £695K and I should like people to be aware that your service is not just relevant for the lower end of the market. Since selling the house, I have been viewing properties myself & therefore dealing with Estate Agents, & my experiences have made me thankful that I am not giving them exorbitant fees for the very bad service they deliver. I would encourage everyone to sell their home through housenetwork and will not hesitate in endorsing you to everyone, so well done and thank you. Yours sincerely
I would like to thank House Network for the excellent service and marketing they have provided, which is undoubtedly exceptional value for money.
Thank you so much for your service in selling our house. Despite you being very busy due to the proposed introduction of HIPS at the time we first contacted you in mid May, you handled us very efficiently, visiting us to take the photographs within a week, and Ian Atkinson's photos and web site were excellent (far superior to most agents listings). We had 2 viewings in the first 2 weeks of the house being on the market and sold to the second viewer who has now completed. The service you have provided, with the excellent web presence and the ability to view progress on viewings and feedback online is remarkable for the price and we would recommend you without reservation to anyone looking to sell a house. Thank you once again and we wish you the very best of fortune in the future.
Paul & Zoe
Thanks for all of you help with this sale, the quality of the sales information (floorplans, photos and virtual tours) has definitely made a difference from other house sales I've made and the service has been fantastic (thanks Dan and Katie), it's refreshing to be able to see on-line exactly what;s happening at any time - I'll certainly recommend you to friends and family...
Just a quick line to say how pleased we were with the service you provided. No hard sell just good honest service, with always prompt phone calls with any bookings or enquirers. Thank you Kate and all of the staff in your office. I would recommend you to any one with a house to sell, not only for the great saving but for your excellent service.
Many thanks, Tom Mount.
Hi everybody - I just want to say a big THANK YOU for helping me to sell my house. Everything went well and the buyer is going to take possession of the house tomorrow. My solicitor will pay the final payment to you. You have been great and I will certainly recommend you to all my friends (unfortunately they do not move as often as me, but you never know). Well thanks again and regards to you all,
In conclusion, I can advise you that our experience with Housenetwork has been absolutely first class! In every respect, you deliver what you promise. You are exceptional value for money and we could not be more pleased with the service we have received, not only with the first-class friendly customer service we have received from the team but the high calibre (with only one exception) of the people who have come to view. In short, I rate Housenetwork at 100% and would (and have) unhesitatingly recommend you to others and if we decide to move house in the future, you will be our first and only port of call. I would appreciate it if you would copy this email to your directors and the content of my feedback on your services will reflect our aforementioned experience. Best regards and thank you!
Fantastic service. We could not fault the prompt correspondence or professional approach of Housenetwork. We would, and have, recommended to friends and family
Eileen & Mark Griffiths
We just wanted to thank house network for your excellent service during the sale of our property. Viewings were arranged efficiently and feedback was always provided. Your staff were friendly and professional when negotiating the sale. The website was easy to use and well managed. When searching to buy our property we felt more comfortable when the owners showed us around their home as we could ask more questions about the house and the area. Often the estate agents new little about the property, some made little effort to try and sell the house and some didn't turn up on time! Selling a property on house network is great value for money and we'll never use a local estate agent again!
Katherine and Adam
I just wanted to let you know that I think that your service is fantastic. You are a thousand times better than any other estate agent. We were with another agent prior to listing our property with you and had NO viewings for five weeks. We have only been listed with you for just over a week and had two requested viewings. Not only is your presentation fantastic (thank you Gregg), your prices are excellent, your service and efficiency is second to none. I hope you go on to have the monopoly in the market you deserve. You deserve every success. (whether I sell my home or not) I will certainly recommend you to EVERYBODY
I just wanted to let you know how very pleased I was with your company when I sold my house through your service. I received an absolutely brilliant service and everyone who came to view the house had nothing but praise with how they were contacted. The solicitors that I used also commented on how very well everything went, and every time you contacted me, I felt that I got a first class service. Brilliant Website Highly recommended - keep up the good work
Mr Sam Oldfield
Just wanted to say thankyou for the great value for money service that you provided me with during the recent sale of my Docklands apartment - I will never use a local estate agent again!.
Dear House Network,
Can I take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent service, this has been a long and drawn out sale, yet you continued to chase it on our behalf. To be honest my expectations were low (given your price), but you have provided a service far better than traditional estate agents costing 10 times the price !
I have just exchanged contracts on the sale of my house. I should like to thank you for your article on Estate Agents in the April edition of 'Which'. I decided to sell my house through housenetwork.co.uk and thoroughly recommend them. Their standard of service was excellent. The sale wasn't an easy one and their patience and understanding, was second to none. Despite the fact that they are very busy (and deserve to be) they always had time for me and always answered my questions with consideration. In particular I should like to thank Dean Fisher - General Manager for all his help and support.
Thank you 'Which' for your article and thank you housenetwork for selling my house so efficiently.
I used Housenetwork. They combine very low fixed fees with a web presence and the benefits of an estate agency (negotiation, marketing etc.). As long as you are prepared to do the viewings, or you can arrange someone to do this, I would thoroughly recommend them. I did a lot of research to find a web based agent who: - promoted via major websites including rightmove - had a low fee (£200 upfront, £200 on completion or 0.5%) - provided decent marketing (including a 360 video of your home) In my opinion, as long as you have the first two are OK most of the job is done. The beauty is Housenetwork will arrange the viewings, website and negotiations for you.
Thanks for all your help with the sale. We have been extremely pleased with your service. We were initially sceptical, but decided to give your service a whirl and have been pleased with the service from you and the response from prospective purchasers. Everything has proceeded smoothly. Thanks again we would certainly recommend you to others and use you again should we ever decide to move.
I would like to say how impressed I have been with the House Network estate agents. I was rather sceptical as to whether houses in the higher price brackets could effectively be marketed online but given the small upfront cost it was certainly worth a go. I was astonished therefore and delighted to find that I had viewing requests almost from the moment we went live. The house was sold at the full asking price within 5 days, saving me over ?30,000 compared with what a local estate agent quoted. I have no hesitation in recommending House Network to everyone I meet
We recently sold our house through House Network. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your services in this matter. The sale proceeded quickly and efficiently, and at all times I felt your staff were professional, friendly and reliable. I have been more than impressed with the quality of your services, and will ensure that I recommend you to friends and family in the future.
After using Housework Network to sell my property, I would not hesitate to recommend them and commend them for their attention and professionalism during the whole process.
We would just like to convey to potential users of your internet based estate agency that it worked very smoothly for us. Your site is easy and comprehensive to use and your service is efficient and effective. We would advice any doubtful sellers to give you a go. Your staff were always friendly and helpful and we will recommend your agency to others.
Martin & Jacqueline Dale
Just thought Id drop you a quick line to add that the service you and your team have offered has been second to none and I will have no problems at all in recommending you to any friends or colleagues who require a House Sale
We feel that we must write to you to thank you for the excellent service you provided in selling our home in London. The initial outlay was well worth the money for what was provided. The person who came to look at the house, take photos and draw up plans spent a long time with us, asked questions which showed his professionalism and the resulting website which was up and running within 48 hours was excellent.
Within two weeks, we had a buyer! We doubt very much whether we would have had such a good result with a High Street estate agent. We were very pleased with the way you kept in touch with us throughout the sale, ringing regularly, responding very promptly to phone calls and emails, and offering us a better service all round. The solicitors that you recommended were over £500 cheaper than our own solicitor and again provided us with an excellent service. The best thing is we have saved around £10,000 in estate agents fees!!
So thank you for providing this excellent service. We hope your company continues to thrive. You more than met our expectations and we have already recommended you
Michael and Teresa Andrews
House Network provided a first class service, unlike the patronising service offered by more traditional providers. Other mainstream Estate Agents told us that we wouldn't get more than £145k for our property even though we thought it was worth £10k more. House Network didn't question this and let us market the property for £155k which sold within weeks. Not only did we gain £10k on the sale price but paid a fraction of the costs for selling the property, saving another estimated £2k! The web site offered a fantastic professional platform which no doubt sold the property. We received a first class service from House Network and would 100% recommend them to anyone wishing to sell.
With estate agents all seeming to charge a huge amount for not very much in return, I looked to the Internet to see if there were any better alternatives. One stood out House Network. They were the only one to offer an estate agency service, with advertising on RightMove and for a reasonable price. Having found them, I still had some concerns about who they were since Id never heard of them before, but it was easy to put my mind at rest.
They have a very informative web site, and crucially they also back it up with a competent organisation behind it and communication by telephone just like any other estate agent. They even have a simple contract thats doesnt tie you in like some do.
So I took the plunge and paid the up-front fee for a home visit. This happened exactly on time even though the local Cheshire-based person originally booked, turned out to be unavailable they actually sent someone else all the way up from London.
After the visit, the installation of a sale board and publishing of my house details on the web also went smoothly (I did have a couple of issues to sort out, but I dont mind this as long as they get sorted out and this was done very quickly and effectively using email and phone calls). Now my house was on the market and within a couple of weeks, before Id even had time to wonder whether the advertising was working, I had my first viewing. Shortly afterwards this also turned into my first offer, which highlights another key feature of House Networks service because there are no restrictions on the amount of photographs or descriptive text and you have a floor plan and virtual tours, potential buyers get a really good idea of the house before coming to see it hence you are much more likely to get an offer from a viewing.
As it turned out, this first offer fell through (obviously nothing to do with House Network), but I had another one within the same week and sold shortly afterwards. As with anything, you do have to understand and incorporate correctly the service that House Network offers, into the overall house selling process in order to get the best out of it and not apportion any blame for not selling your house unduly.
For instance, to get a good advert with good photos you need a clean and tidy house to start with and preferably sunny weather. House Network certainly supply descriptions that are no worse than any other estate agent, but none of them know your house like you do so as soon as my initial web site was created I got straight online to do some fine tuning. No house is going to sell if its overpriced and it helps to do your own research into this. In a static or falling market, dont expect to get the full asking price. Regularly check your advert is where its supposed to be e.g. do a search on RightMove.
Remember you have to do your own viewings which seems to be about the only thing House Network cant do that a local agent could, but also remember how much a local agent charges for it, that House Network do the booking and feedback for you, and that all being well there wont be a need for many viewings anyway. Im looking for a new house for myself now and I must say its very frustrating having to make do with the sparse details most agents provide. A few offer a floor plan which is really useful, but you rarely see more than about 5 pictures.
At the moment I think House Network lead the way when it comes to selling houses. You get a modern and professional service for a fair price. I always felt in control of the selling process and yet supported at the same time.
I would like to express our thanks for the professional and friendly way Housenetwork are dealing with the sale of our house. From the moment I telephoned to enquire on your service to the young man that attended the house to take the photographs to my dealings with you on the pending sale of our property. The advice and assistance has been excellent with nothing proving to be too much trouble.
You offer a very comprehensive service that is excellent value for money. I believe our house sold because of the way the potential purchaser was treated by the staff at Housenetwork. They contacted housenetwork by telephone after seeing your board at our property. They received all the information they required over the telephone. The viewing was arranged speedily and efficiently and the offers were acted on and dealt with. In our case it all happened the same afternoon with no hassle or inconvenience!! The offer has been accepted and the sale is going through with Housenetwork giving us great after sale service. Roll on completion!! Fabulous service and I will be recommending Housenetwork.
Sarah and Adrian James.
The service was very efficient and people were always well mannered and promises of callbacks were never missed. Excellent service and excellent price. Thanks for everything.
I have used a number of estate agents in the past (I am currently marketing my 4th house) and I must say that HouseNetwork have provided the most efficient and comprehensive service of all the agencies I have used. They visited my house (as a 'conventional' estate agent would), they noted the room dimensions (as a 'conventional' estate agent would), they erected a 'For Sale' board (as a 'conventional' estate agent would), they provided floor plans (as some 'conventional' estate agents would) and they filmed a virtual tour (as only a minority of 'conventional' estates agents would).
HouseNetwork are an estate agency who run their business in a professional, efficient and courteous manner. The main, significant differences between HouseNetwork and other 'conventional' estate agents is that HouseNetwork have had the foresight to fully embrace the modern technologies available to them and to provide their excellent services to the customer at a reasonable and realistic price
