Private house sales Lewes

Would a private sale website for houses just for Lewes work? I have just put my house on and there must be a cartel, because every agency is charging 1.5% - a lot of dough for shooting fish in a barrel.
I'm on a contract away from Lewes over in Bournemouth for the next couple of months, otherwise I'd list it myself, take the pictures, do the viewings etc. I'd pay a couple of hundred quid, knowing I've saved a couple of thousand.
Webbo, why don;t you allow this facility?

That's weird, I was just talking about the very same thing at lunchtime today.
You can add your property to the property section on this site for a tenner though.
But expanding that facility would be a great idea and with the traffic this site gets it should work

You'd need to call out the private house sales a bit more so people know it's there - I never look at your property section because my assumption is all the usual agents who are on Rightmove, Zoopla etc. Give it some welly. It should push your # of visitors right up once people know it's there.
If you promoted it better, I'd certainly be interested. And even better if you provided a template so people didn't forget important info. Plus, found a local photographer who'd do decent pics of your house for 50 if needed.
It's worth pointing out that a legal requirement is an EPC certificate - but you simply order the survey for 35 at somewhere like the link I've added at the bottom.
Lastly, you should add a form so people can be contacted back for a viewing - name, email address, phone number - so details are not lost. Simply email forwarding would do the trick.

No EPC required for listed buildings by the way!

OP, You don't have to pay the full 1.5%
That's just their starting figure, you can normally get them down to around 1%
You also don't have to agree to all the terms of the contract, just strike the bits out you don't like.
