www.mousesale.co.uk will enable vendors and purchasers to sell and buy property privately without the need for a traditional estate agent and a selling fee.
The news follows rightmove.co.uk research for July 2006 that shows that the
average asking price of a house in England and Wales is now over 217,000. At 2.5% plus VAT, that is equivalent to a traditional estate agent selling fee
of over 6300.
Richard Garland, Mouse Sale managing director, says: “The Internet is
revolutionising the way that property is sold in the UK. 82% of people
currently use the Internet to search for their next home. This is the future
for house sales in the UK.”
Mouse Sale is launching www.mousesale.co.uk first in Suffolk, Norfolk, Kent,
Notts, Cheshire and South East London – with the intention to roll the
business out across the UK. Branches are already in the pipeline for Essex,
Newcastle and Cheshire.
