ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

This lot phoned me today and made me an offer.

https://www.griffin-residential.co.uk/

The newest on line estate agent in town.

For the first 300 people to sign up you get it completely free (normally £475) Now I have listed my house for sale there and secured my free slot, I don't mind telling others.

you get a lsiting on Zoopla, Right Move, and Prime Location.

I'm not connected with them in any way and don't blame me if it goes wrong in any way.

Do they expect a % of any sale, or is this simply an offer to get some properties on their books and their name out there?

I asked that.

No commission on a sale. Just (normally) a one off fee to get it listed.

Along the way as you list it, they try to sell you extra services like pay for a photographer to come and photograph it etc, and pay extra for a premium listing, but I declined all that and have a competely free listing.

I think it's a genuine offer to get some properties on their site, and to iron out some bugs with the site software (there are a few)

I am tempted to put my neighbours house up for sale :D

Sounds like a good way of pushing the local price up. Stick all your neighbours house on and add a couple of hundred thou, then you can sell a real bargain but still get 100K more than it is worth.

Damn

Shall we just buy a domain name and do it on the sly.
No different from an estate agent overvaluing a property or saying there is someone else interested.
Or a financial advisor selling an endowment policy at a growth rate of 7%

They all appear to be finished? I'm not familiar with this concept ;)
