Would you buy an estate agent a Porsche?

A £10k fee for selling an average London home? It's enough to get a decent second-hand Porsche - you wouldn’t buy an estate agent a Porsche would you?

Most people would be happy to show potential buyers around their own home if it saved them that huge estate agent’s fee. The problem with avoiding an estate agent and selling your own home yourself is all the other stuff that those agents do- floor plans, ‘for sale’ boards, photos and energy certificates. Then there is the huge problem of marketing. You can’t just put your house onto Zoopla or Rightmove, which is where everybody goes to look for houses these days, because they are for estate agents only.

Obviously a new kind of company is required, one that helps you to sell your own home and avoid those huge commission fees by bridging the gaps that only an estate agent can fill. Well, Just599 has the answer. The London start-up charges just £599 to get your house up on those big property portals.

As well as getting your property up onto Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime location, Just599 can also help with optional services that can be tailored to fit your needs and this flexibility helps to keep costs down. Need a floor plan? Well just add it to your requirements. Already have good photos of your house? Then leave this off your list and save the money.

Just599 even deals with enquiries and offers in exactly the same way as the expensive high-street agents, via email or by phone. But unlike those other agents, when you do sell your house, they won’t be sending you a sky-high bill, the only thing they will send you is congratulations.

“In the same way that consumers are increasingly using Uber instead of black cabs,property owners will start to use Just599 rather than commission-based estate agents” said marketing director Ian Reece.

“A 1.5% commission fee from a high-street agent would result in a bill of over £10,000 just from selling a £560k home. A £10k fee for selling an average London home? It's enough to get a decent second-hand Porsche - you wouldn’t buy an estate agent a Porsche would you? Worse still, this demand will arrive just when you are already swamped with bills from the solicitor, stamp duty and the removal company as well as your new mortgage!”

By bridging the gaps that prevent homeowners from selling their own houses, Just599 makes for a compelling alternative to traditional high-street agents. It also answers a question that many people have often asked: why do estate agents charge so much money? The answer seems to have been 'because they could'.
