    How do we manage to charge such low fees?

    As we are an online estate agency we are able to keep our costs down by using the latest technology and operating out of a single call centre rather than having a network of local offices. We don't have expensive overheads such as high rents, rates and running a fleet of company cars. These cost savings are then passed onto you.

8 Top Tips for Viewing Property
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed
    When you book a viewing with turtlehomes.co.uk online estate agents we will confirm the date, time, address and who will be conducting the viewing by email.

    The vendor of the property will show you round which is great because they know their property better than anyone!!

    After the viewing, normally the following day, we will call or email you to find out what you thought and how you got on with the viewing.
  • paragraph

    How to get the most out of your viewing
    It is essential that you make the most of your viewing to ensure that you are informed as much as possible prior to making an offer.
  • paragraph

    Our 8 Top Tips for property viewing
  • paragraph

    1. Drive past the property beforehand
    Even before the viewing and if you can it is always worth driving past property. By driving past the house and around nearby the streets allows you to get a feel for the property and the neighbourhood.
  • paragraph

    2. Be prepared before the viewing
    Make a list of things that are important to you and any questions that you want to ask before the house viewing.

    We recommend that you print off and use our viewing checklist which will help make sure that you don't miss anything during the viewing.
  • paragraph

    3. Take a friend or family on the viewing
    Go with your partner or take a friend with you. A second pair of eyes could be very handy. It's also great to have someone to bounce ideas off and have an alternative opinion.
  • paragraph

    4. What to look for - property exterior
    You will want to check the exterior of the property that you have come to view. You should check:

    • Parking, is there enough what you need?
    • Which way does the house face?
  • paragraph

    5. What to look for - property interior
    The most important thing is to try and ignore the current owner's décor as much as you can, and concentrate on how much you may need to spend to make your home and think about whether your furniture will fit into the house.
  • paragraph

    6. Take your time during the viewing
    Make sure that you spend as much time as you need when viewing a house so that you can really get a feel for the place. It is also worth re-visiting the property a second time.
  • paragraph

    7. Be polite and friendly during the viewing
    It can feel a bit intrusive viewing a house but there is no need to feel uncomfortable. It is a huge investment to make, so it pays to be a little nosey!

    Building up a rapport with the seller will make you more memorable, which is always helpful when you want your offer accepted.

    However, you should refer to the property viewing checklist and make sure that you leave with answers to all of your questions.
  • paragraph

    8. What will be included with the property sale?
    If there is anything specific you would like included in the sale, please make us aware from the outset.

    We hope that you enjoyed our viewing guide. If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact turtlehomes.co.uk online estate agents on 01452 726421.

  • Introduction

    Richard Tuck - Director
    image cannot be displayed
    Turtlehomes.co.uk was launched as online estate agents by Richard Tuck B.Sc (hons) in 2008. With all of his previous success as a director of one of Gloucestershire's, Worcestershire's and Wiltshire's largest estate agents, he decided to apply his 20 years knowledge and experience into creating a new and refreshing alternative to Estate Agency. Richard came up with the idea of setting up Turtlehomes.co.uk online estate agents by creating a formula that offers traditional estate agency methods with minimum overheads in order to pass substantial fee savings to the seller.

      Very professional from start to finish
      Turtle homes were excellent, very professional from start to finish, Laura was excellent and very helpful, nothing was too much and she always did what she said she would.  Our house went on the market on Friday of a bank holiday weekend and was under offer by the Tuesday morning.

      Efficiency and Professionalism
      I could not recommend Turtle Homes more highly. From start to finish their efficiency and professionalism has been outstanding. A particular mention must go to Laura and Gareth who both helped keep ourselves , our buyers and the solicitors fully informed throughout the process. The placement on the property websites went very smoothly and their price could certainly not be bettered. The Turtle Homes website is also one of the clearest I found. I have already recommended them to a number of people. Sold house in Bristol August 2015.

      A pleasure to deal with and value for money.
      Turtle Home have been both a pleasure to deal with and fantastic value for money.My partner and I decided to use Turtle Homes to sell our property because we wanted to market our property at a low cost that still provided the service we needed. Our friends and family were skeptical of online estate agents and the nature of an up front cost however we persevered as we felt sure that Turtle Homes was right for us. We weren't nervous about the online only aspect as that is how we search for houses ourselves.We went the £425 package which meant Turtle Homes would do all the marketing, book appointments, negotiate the sale etc. I remember contacting Turtle Homes to check the price was full and final and there were no hidden costs. It seemed such an amazing price, things are not usually to good to be true. To my delight, yes the price was as stated with no hidden costs and included all the services I needed.After appointing Turtle Homes we had the photographer and our brochure created really quickly. Gareth coordinated with me to ensure I was happy with its contents and allowed me to have my input. I had so many compliments on the brochure from friends and family saying what a good job they'd done and they had really shown our home at its best, Exactly the response you would hope for.Laura looked after our appointments and negotiated our sale, she did a fantastic job. The communication with everyone at Turtle Homes was friendly, fast and efficient. I don't think I ever waited longer than half an hour to get a response to my emails which is an outstanding service. It went so smoothly and we sold our house within days. The buyers of our property even commented on the great customer service they had received from Turtle Homes with regard to the speed of communication and the negotiate process, this is obviously comforting to know as a seller.I could't recommend Turtle Homes enough for its value for money and customer service. We are delighted we took what some might think as a leap of faith into the online estate agency world and saved ourselves hundreds of pounds whilst getting a top notch service.

      Turtle homes are superior in every way
      From start to finish, Turtle Homes have been excellent. My only regret is that I didn't come across Turtle Homes sooner. For 7 months my home was on the market with a well known high street Estate Agent. I had one viewing in all that time and the customer service was shockingly poor for the £3000!! plus they were expecting from me on completion of sale. 

      The difference when starting with Turtle Homes was immense. The customer service is excellent. Each person I had contact with at Turtle Homes, was kind, courteous , knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I had at least one viewing a week and was kept up to date every step of the way. When an offer was made and the sale was going through, if I had any queries they responded the same day.

      High Street Estate agents beware! Turtle homes are not only far superior in every way, but the low cost is an amazing price considering the outstanding service received. Thank you Turtle Homes! 

      I have and will continue to spread the word to family and friends.

      This was the first time we had used an on line estate agent, and we are very happy with turtle homes, we have dealt with Gareth for most of the time and found him very helpful and always there when needed, if we ever move in future we would definitely choose turtle homes, and will recommend to family and friends.Mr & Mrs Hewitt

      Excellent Experience
      Excellent experience with Turtle Homes. We selected the no sale no fee option. We received two offers on our house within three weeks of the house being put on Rightmove. I think we would have paid much more had we put our home up for sale using local estate agents. It took a while for the sale to go through due to delays with solicitors but Laura at Turtle Homes provided a lot of support for us in progressing the sale and liaising between the two sides. Overall, very good experience and would use Turtle Homes again.

      You won't be disappointed
      We had our house on the market last year with another estate agents and sold it but we had to pull out due to the seller of the house we were buying taking it off the market so we decided to put it on again this year so we decided this year to use an internet company instead and we decided to use turtle homes as they are a local company and weare so glad we did the service we received was fantastic we had Gareth and Laura dealing with the sale of our house ,they arranged all of the viewings for us and always contacted us with feed back after each viewing ,they were very helpfull and always answered our questions and helped us if we needed any information .The service we received was just as good as any high street estate ,I was expecting much less as we were paying so much less but not once did they disappoint us in any way we sold our house in less than a week and had 6 viewings and will be hopefully exchanging contracts soon,give this company a go you won't be dissapointed.

      How are estate agents still in business?
      The communication about interested viewers was delivered on time everyday via email. Potential buyers inquiries were acted upon quickly and efficiently when received[even out of office hours] so we never missed an interested party.After instructing Turtle to market our home the day after the photographer visited and plans where arranged. The same week our advert was live on all the major property sites We sold our house in three weeks.Without a ridiculous outdated commission fee just a flat rate you know where your finances are and after all its your money.Turtle homes are highly recommended to everyone who just wants to sell their home quickly and efficiently for a price that cant be beaten. How are high street estate agents still in business?

      Thank you for a pleasant experience
      I always found staff very friendly to deal with and whoever I contacted were very quick and efficient in getting back to me with the information I required. Really happy with the level of service we received and would definitely recommend turtle homes to anyone needing an estate agent. I also know, from speaking to the vendors of the property that we are moving to, they are also in the same situation and communications between them and the estate agent have been both frequent and progressive. Thank you for such a pleasant experience.

      I will use turtle again when I sell another house.
      I went for the mid package. worth every penny. I was on rightmove and zoopla, which is were everybody looks first. I averaged 1 viewing a week for 7/8 weeks and then accepted an offer. 

      the team were there all the way through, always answered the phone and emails even if sometimes I thought they were getting fed up of me giving them hassle. 

      I will be using turtle again when I sell another house.
