Why Choose Habitats
1. Save Money
Why pay more? Habitats is free, there is no estate agency commission to pay (typically 1.5% of your property's selling price, so on average £2,000 to £3,000). With Habitats, you only pay for any additional marketing and tools you want, without commitment.
Our platform will help you create your listing, arrange your marketing choices, liaise with buyers for viewings and offers, agree your sale - then we give you everything an estate agent would so your solicitor can exchange contracts, and you can get moving.
Then comes the important job of choosing what you would like to spend the thousands of pounds you have saved on... but we can't help you there!
2. Save Time
You waste a huge amount of time dealing with a traditional estate agency: checking viewing availability, booking buyers in, chasing for feedback, calling you to pass that feedback on, and so on. Even when you have agreed a sale, it is often the estate agent you will be chasing, to ask them to chase your solicitor!
With Habitats, all of this is in the palm of your hand - you arrange viewings from your phone, receive feedback into your Habitats inbox, negotiate offers with ease, and when your sale is agreed we create everything you need to give to your solicitor of choice, or we can recommend one for you.
3. Take Control
No one knows your home better than you. You choose what marketing and tools you want, and what you don't want.
A dab hand at photography? Great - no need to pay for professional photos, or get the best of both worlds and let our experts enhance your shots (blue sky, green grass, etc.) for a few pounds per picture so you stand out online.
Don't fancy a 'For-Sale' board? Then don't have one.

Our job is to give you everything you need to sell your home yourself for the best possible price, with as little hassle as possible, saving as much money as possible, and always keeping you as compliant as possible. It can be a minefield out there, we have worked hard to keep you the right side of the law and regulations!
Isn't selling my home myself difficult?
Until now, selling your home yourself was very challenging - how do you present your home properly, where do you market it to attract buyers, how would you advertise on Rightmove and Zoopla, how would you know how to price your property, how to negotiate offers, and how would you remain compliant throughout the process?
An estate agent can help with these challenges, but they charge thousands of pounds to do so, and, in our experience (as estate agents, as buyers, and as sellers) can often slow the process down, relaying messages between the parties.
Habitats is a first in the UK, giving sellers the tools and marketing which, until now, had been reserved for estate agents - so now, you can do it yourself, save thousands of pounds, and take control of your property sale.
Technology has made what was once difficult, easy.
The real question is, why WOULDN'T you sell your home yourself?
