Although it is possible to sell your property privately, the task of setting the price, marketing the property, arranging viewings, qualifying buyers, negotiating offers and progressing the sale through solicitors, can be an overwhelming undertaking. Most sellers choose to engage an estate agent who acts on your behalf to find you the right buyer at the right price and to actually help you with your move.
