Keep on reading to gain an understanding of how the process works and what FastCash4Houses can do to make the process easier for you.

Step 1: Create an account

The first step in selling a house on any online market place is to firstly create an account on the chosen website. Simply click the sign-up button, enter your details and you’re ready to procced.

Step 2: Prepare for presentation

To ensure the sale of your house goes smoothly, you must first ensure that your property looks presentable. One of the main features of eBay and other such market places are that they are quite visual, meaning the first thing prospective buyers will draw their attention to is pictures of the property. A few ways in which you can enhance the look of your property are as follows:

  • Covering up wear and tear e.g. painting over marks on walls and buffing away scratches on flooring
  • Streamlining e.g. neatly organising stacks of magazines or items on a shelf
  • Decluttering e.g. removing clutter such as opened mail and random leaflets
  • Ambiance e.g. take your pictures in day light and include plants and tasteful art pieces within the pictures and maybe include a lit a candle or two

Step 3: Marketing your property

Once you have captured your pictures, it’s time to list your property. When doing so, you should highlight the best features of your property and also make sure to list local amenities such as restaurants and transport links.

Step 4: Close the deal

You’ve found a buyer and you’ve closed the deal… Great? Think again… Although selling your house on eBay may feel like an easy process, it is not necessarily the most cost-effective way of selling your house or the most time-efficient option. eBay charge a flat £35 for all property listings and additionally, PayPal will charge you 3.4% + a 20p flat charge on the final sale price of your home. Furthermore, listings are not legally binding which means you would still have the added work of having to meet the buyer and have contracts drawn up; which would most likely cost you even more due to a solicitor’s fee.
