We have been online since 2000 and are one of the most established private house sales and classified ads websites in the UK.
The Little House Company was asked to contribute to the Office of Fair Trading Housing Market report. The report found a lack of innovation in the housing market and encouraged a move to online marketing in order that vendors could save money. The report found that the present system whereby estate agents all charged the same commission fees resulted in a lack of choice for consumers.
Our Average Home Sellerr
A study in 2010 found that our average sellers was in early 50.s and was selling a second or third home at about £400,000. All had previous experience with estate agents service.
Private House Sales
The private house sales model allows vendors to advertise thier homes for FREE they then deal directly with potential buyers. We encourage vendors to provide lots of information about their homes including photos floor plans and even video. This helps prevent wasted viewings and results in only serious buyers making appointments to view a property. Once a sale price has been agreed sellers simply swap legal details and the legal conveyancing process begins.
The Little House Company encourages vendors to promote adapted , accessible or features suitable for disabled or wheelchair users . Each property listing gives vendors the ability to be positive about these features. Many estate agents have asked our vendors to hide remove or see adaptions for disabled as a negative selling point. We have put hundreds of buyers and sellers together seeking accessible property.

The Little House Company enjoy frequent media coverage in all UK national newspapers and has appeared on ITV Trevor Mc Donald in DIY home sales. Our ethos is Not Anti agent but pro consumer choice.
