In the past, when the time came to sell your home, instinctively your first port of call would have been your local estate agents. Why? Well because that's what you had to do. The agents were the people with all the knowledge, experience and contacts in the business to assist you through the process of selling your home. Whilst providing a necessary link between you and a prospective buyer, and the benefit of their experience in the property field, the agent would gain a healthy commission from the sale.
In today's world of readily available information via the internet, there are options to take more control in almost anything you do. You can now sell almost anything direct to the buyer, or perhaps choose your utility suppliers, phone and digital media suppliers etc. by using various price comparison sites.
A few clicks of a mouse and you can take great satisfaction in saving some cash simply by switching suppliers. Now you can also take control and choose to sell your own home without an agent, often saving thousands of pounds by not having to pay heavy commission fees.
