Selling your home is a major life event, full of new horizons for you and your family. It involves changing the property that you live in, often in a completely fresh location – it’s a new start! Amidst all the excitement surrounding your move, selling a property on the open market can be expensive.
As our UK-wide survey revealed, selling your house is one of life’s most stressful events and was ranked even higher than having a baby or getting married! Often, you feel emotionally connected to your home and if you’re not finding offers flooding in for it, it can be easy to take it quite personally.
Over the past few years, online estate agents such as Tepilo and Purple Bricks have become increasingly popular, rivalling traditional agents. Why? Well in short, online estate agents tend to be more affordable and transparent with their pricing than high street agents.
Changing the way you can sell your home With the rapid expansion of the internet and online technology, the way we learn, communicate and shop has been revolutionised. This paradigm shift has allowed companies to adopt new, dynamic business models that allow them to function purely online, without the need for a physical location.

For our latest piece of property advice, we look at the potential of downsizing, and why Vivo may work for you if you are looking to relocate to a cosier abode. But firstly: What is downsizing? In the property industry, ‘downsizing’ is the act of moving from a large property to a smaller home.
It may have come out of the blue or is something you have always dreamed of, but relocating is a major life event, one full of adventure and new opportunities.
As a nation of proud homeowners, the prospect of house repossession is rather distressing. Getting onto the property ladder is hard work and often requires lots of planning, saving, and a bit of luck.
