I approached The Little House Company for assistance with a For Sale By Owner house sale in conjunction with a local estate agent as we needed to sell our house in a short space of time. From the outset, I was impressed by the friendliness of the staff (Bonjana) and how much assistance she was prepared to give me.
We sold our house within 24 hours of it being put on the market. This was through the local agent but I am convinced that the number of visits to Right Move was a direct response to the tweets and article that The Little House Company did for us to feature our home.
I would recommend this company wholeheartedly and if we had not been rushed with our necessity to sell very quickly, we would have entrusted the whole sale to the online service.
This companies website was aesthetically pleasing, and is user friendly. I sold a real property over this website, and it was fairly inexpensive as well as quick. The company seems professional, and polite. I also chose to find an apartment off of the website, and I was also please with how easy and quick it was. I would definitely refer this company to a friend.
Initially this company seemed perfectly businesslike and professional prior to taking my payment. Once you've paid (£260 in my case) then forget about contacting 'thelittlehousecompany'. The 'Hotline' as advertised goes straight to voicemail always. You are told "One of our operatives will return your call ASAP." I don't believe there are any operatives other than the owner operator. No point in leaving any messages as they do not believe in customer service once payment has gone thru'. Even the 'Contact Us' link on their website does not work! Not one single enquiry in 6 weeks. The provided floor plan is incomplete. The Website is confusing and difficult to navigate. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
I saw that you can try a DIY home sale yourself and also be in a contract with a local estate agent. My house in Birmingham had been on the market for several months. My estate agent who was a really nice person but lazy was not doing anything more to help sell my house despite it hanging around unsold. I said to him that I was going to use The Little House Company website who were not an estate agency to help find a buyer. I was fully upfront about this and told him he would lose any commission if I managed to sell using the services they offered. I spent less than £100 and created a private sale advert. The next day I sent him a link to my advert . He sent me a email back stating that he would put my house in the local paper and feature it on his site. This along with my private sale advert resulted in new interest and finding a buyer. Unfortunately the agent found a buyer first but the site helped me get him marketing for me. Next time I will not bother with the estate agent who essentially was lazy.
Good little website for those in the know, I am an investor seeking homes offered at good value. Good for Sale by Owners sites in the UK are hard to find The Little House Company has some interesting properties. Much prefer to deal direct with the owner as you may know they tend to be more flexible having not to pay an estate agent. Great site for property investors check it out.
This website is brilliant. Save money and commission fees from estate agents looking to rip you off. You can advertise you home in minutes and upload photos and set your price and you can deal with people who want to buy/rent your home direct rather than having to pay thousands to an estate agent to do it for you.
This is a brilliant idea and I this should have been done ages ago.
Having enlisted an estate agent and used the leading proeprty website Rightmove I thought my house would sell instantly. As the weeks went on I received a small number of enquiries and only one actual house viewing. I began searching the interne tfor a fresh approach and came across The Little House Company. I decided to give them a go and given the large % estate agents want the fee seemed miniscule. A few days past and I received an enquiriey through the website and then a second one the following day. The first enquirer booked a a viewing with me and that same day put an offer in on the house.The Little House Company is simple to use and effective at what it does. It may not be the biggest name in the property market but it helped sell my house.
