I advertise my home with Hsc
Property as well as with an Estate Agent?
YES - You can
advertise property on this site in addition to your Estate
Agents advertising because HSC Property is not an Estate Agent.
Either useyour Estate Agents contact details
on the advert so
that a prospective viewer goes through the Agent Or
use your own contact details and sell
your property privately. To sell privately you deal with viewers directly
a selling price and then exchange solicitor details for legal
aspects to be dealt with.
If the contract stated 'sole agent'then you can usually
privately and not owe the full commission to the Agent. They may charge you
for advertising or other costs. If
the contract states 'sole selling rights' then you will
still have to pay the Estate Agent commission in full. Check the
contract for any clauses which state that if you sell your own
property you still have to pay full fees. Avoid these Agents if you
want to sell privately or keep that as an option. More
Should I tell my Agent that I have a private property advert?
Yes. You should give full information to the Estate Agent. If they think you may get your own buyer they should work harder

Why do Estate Agents contracts have a termination of contract notice
ATo deter sellers from opting out. No sale no fee remember!
Signing up to a termination notice period prevents you from
displaying another Agents board for a number of weeks. However, this
does not usually restrict you advertising the property as a private
property seller with a HSC Property FOR SALE Board
because we are not an Estate Agent. This may vary if your contract was
a 'sole agent contract'.
A Selling privately saves thousands on Estate Agent fees. An Estate Agent usually charges 1 to 2% of
the property value. A HSC Property online private property advert
does not charge commission.
Is it easy to sell property privately?
A If you can talk directly with the viewers, agree a price and exchange solicitor details then you
are capable of selling
your property privately. When a viewer makes an offer ask
their buying position, that is whether they have a home to sell, if
they have had a mortgage agreed in principle and whether they have a
solicitor standing by. Ask them if they would put these details and
their offer in writing to you. If they are serious about proceeding
this will not be a problem for them. When you have exchanged
solicitors details you may wish to add a note to the property advert
stating under offer or sold subject to contract..
