Houses.co.uk is made up of online marketing and technology experts with a collection of ex-High Street Estate Agents who have years of experience with selling and renting residential property.
In 2011, we acquired the domain name Houses.co.uk and thought it would make an excellent online estate agency. We felt like the Estate Agent industry needed a change for the better by broadening the choice for UK Property Sellers. We wanted to establish a company that had at its core honesty, integrity and a true passion for real estate. We wanted to break down the old stigmas associated with estate agents and build trust with the property selling community through simple plain spoken English about what was truly needed to sell your house.
We feel that your property is one of the most important assets in your life and that you need to put this prized possession into safe hands. By using Houses.co.uk, you can make a difference by using the selling channels that the UK has fallen in love with at a fraction of the cost of the high street estate agents.
Unlike other estate agents, we are not here to help ourselves – we are here to help you. We are passionate about property and this shows in how we handle our clients: one at a time, caring for the proper sequence of steps to get your property sold.
Since 2007, the housing market has been a “buyers’ market” in decline, mortgages at reasonable terms have been almost impossible to obtain. But since the end of the summer of 2013, times are a changing. In 2013, housing prices across the country rose by 6.1%. Since June 2013, the average time a property has remained on the market until it has been sold reduced from 12 weeks to 3.5 weeks and, in some parts of the country, is still seeing further reductions. So you have to ask yourself, as the market turns to be a “sellers’ market,” do you really need the extra services a high street estate agent provides to sell your very sellable home?
Up to now, most UK properties are still being sold by high street estate agents through the Internet at on average 30 times our standard flat, one-off fee. Houses.co.uk, with its strong brand and memorable name, with its easy, no nonsense, all inclusive fee, can sell your property professionally with experienced estate agents at a fraction of the traditional cost
