Money saving tip: Forego the For Sale board

There are estate agents’ fees to pay, solicitors costs as well as removal vans.  That’s all before you even start on the costs of buying a new home – with stamp duty being the biggest cost.  Adding all those up can significantly impact on the size of your budget to buy your dream home.

But there are ways you can save money during the house selling process and foregoing the For Sale board is one of them.  Here you can read our article where we evaluate the possible savings and benefits of this approach.  The article was published in the latest issues of Farnborough and Fleet Connection magazines.
