How Purplebricks works in England

Our Local Experts are continuing to offer valuations via video call apps such as WhatsApp, Skype or any of your preferred platforms. If you’re happy to have an in home valuation, we’re now offering safe and socially distanced appointments.

Instruction

Instruction

You can then instruct us to get your home on the market for a fixed fee of £999 across the UK, or £1,499 in London and surrounding areas. You can choose to pay upfront, or you can defer your payment for up to 12 months after advert publication (increased from the normal 10 months).

Your advert

Your advert

Upon instruction, we’ll create your advert. If you choose a virtual valuation, then we’ll edit the photographs you provide to us and add floor plans where possible, followed by a well-crafted description. If you select an in home valuation, then we’ll gather these on our visit while following government safety guidelines. You can also add a Video Tour to your property listing so viewers can browse from the comfort of their own home. Your property will then be listed on Zoopla, Rightmove and Purplebricks, and we’ll get a For Sale board up.

Managing your viewings virtually or at home

Managing your viewings virtually or at home

We’re continuing to ask customers to manage viewings with potential buyers via virtual viewings where possible, using their preferred video call apps. We’re now also offering in home viewing services – your Local Property Expert can give you more detail on how we’re doing this safely. Alternatively, buyers can view a Video Tour on your property advert if one has been uploaded. Virtual or in home viewings can be booked online by your buyers, and you can control the times you’re happy for them to happen by approving each one.
