How to sell your house online
How can I sell my house online quickly?
Long gone are the days of your local estate agent being the only option for selling your home. The internet and technology we have available today means there is potential to sell your property with just the click of a button. However, with so many ways to sell, how do you know which is best for you?
For those who want a stress-free selling option, a cash house buying company could be for you. With SmoothSale you can get a cash offer from the comfort of your home. What sets us apart from other estate agents is you can sell your house online and our service is fully managed. This means we do all the hard work for you. Furthermore, because we buy your property directly from you using our own cash funds, you won’t need to worry about a buyer pulling out or a chain breaking. We buy any house, in any condition, anywhere in the UK. SmoothSale will be your dedicated cash buyer, meaning you can sell in as little as 7 days, or within a timeframe that suits you.
What are the benefits of selling online?
At SmoothSale we can help all potential customers sell their property online. Regardless of home location, size, or condition, our expert team are ready to buy your house from you. Our service is completely free, and we even cover your legal costs. We understand how daunting selling your house can be, which is why we want to make it as easy as possible for you.
Selling your property online can seem too good to be true. Traditionally, you will be used to an in-person valuation from a local estate agent and subsequent viewings without the guarantee of your house selling. With SmoothSale we not only eliminate some common estate agent gripes, but we add our own unique advantages too. Take a look at the benefits of choosing SmoothSale to sell your house online….

SmoothSale will handle the cash purchase for you. Our team is made up of property experts, meaning everyone is best placed to progress your sale. However, you will have a dedicated representative handling your online property sale. From your cash offer to completion (and beyond should you need us) we will manage the sale for you, keeping you in the loop the entire time.
Guaranteed property sale
We buy any property, in any condition, in any location. This isn’t an empty promise. Our online selling service is unlike any other estate agent offering. We can guarantee you will sell your property because we will buy it from you ourselves, using our own funds. We don’t need a mortgage because we have the cash available to buy, which also means you won’t need to fret about the sale falling through.

What other ways are there to sell your property online?
There are a variety of different ways to sell your house online. Some routes to sale require a hands-on approach, whereas others are handled by a company on your behalf. Below we highlight the advantages and disadvantages of the different options available.
Online estate agents
Online estate agencies work in the same way as bricks and mortar estate agents, but the majority of the process is carried out online. You can receive a valuation and progress with the sale virtually, typically through an online portal. Whilst online estate agents may market your home through popular selling sites such as Rightmove and Zoopla, you aren’t guaranteed a sale. Furthermore, most online estate agents charge a fee, typically upwards of £99. There can also be hidden costs too, such as improving your advert with professional photographs or escalating it to a premium listing.
Online property auctions
Selling your house at auction has become popular, particularly for those who have inherited properties or want to part with their second homes. Anyone can sell their home via an online property auction, but it can take a long time, on average around 10 weeks. This isn’t ideal if you require a quick sale. Whilst there is the potential to sell for higher than the guide price due to the bidding process, there is no assurance your home will sell. Also, even if a buyer pays the deposit after winning the auction, they can pull out after the hammer has fallen. They will forfeit their deposit and leave you with a property that remains unsold.
Sell your house with eBay
Selling your house on eBay is an option for those who want to avoid the online estate agent route. eBay fees dictate that you will need to pay anywhere between 0.75% and 3.0% + VAT of the final sale price of your home. There are some serious pitfalls to this way of selling online, however. You will still be charged a fee if your property doesn’t sell, and you could end up out of pocket if you do not put a reserve price in place. Furthermore, you will need to pay for all the legal documents on top and manage the sale yourself.
