In the modern world, our lives are more flexible; we often have the ability to work from home or have different office hours than we used to. That’s why there’s a growing trend of people wanting to sell their house without an agent in the UK. Among other things, It's just more convenient.

There’s a huge opportunity to save money and have a better home-selling experience due to this trend. As we spend more time at home, it makes a lot more sense to conduct viewings yourself. Why? Because leaving your home for someone else to come in doesn’t really make much sense.

So, how do you do it? How do you sell a house without an agent? Simple answer, with 4walls. Let's dive in to the platform

What is 4walls?

4walls is a platform that enables you to list, message, manage and negotiate your house sale without an agent. It’s easy to use and intuitive. Our focus is making your transaction fast, transparent and simple.

Why is this a more optimal way to sell your home?

The way we live our lives and interact with the world has changed. The way we sell our houses hasn’t. It’s stuck in a time when life wasn't less flexible, information wasn’t readily available and we didn’t have access to incredible technology. That is until 4walls, we’re revolutionising the way we sell houses, bringing it into the 21st century.

  • Ever used Airbnb to find a house to stay in?

  • Sold some unwanted items on eBay?

  • Shpock'd something for local pickup?

  • Vinted some second-hand furniture?

  • Purchased a homecraft from Etsy?

4walls makes it as simple as these app's to sell your own house. That's why it's write for you.

So, why is it optimal?

  • Your calendar is synced to the times you’re available. You don’t have to go back and forth with an estate agent on when you're free.

  • You know your house better than anyone. You care about it more than an estate agent. You can highlight all it’s brilliant qualities. You know it inside and out.

How do we make your listing stand out?

  • Elevated Photos - Different angles make the front of your house stand out amongst the rest when people are scrolling through the portals. We include these as standard to increase clicks on your property.

  • High Quality Professional Photos that give your home the wow factor and showcase it in the best light

  • Floorplan: According to Rightmove over 90% of buyers and tenants think that seeing a floor plan is essential. Listings that include floor plans tend to get much more attention than those that don’t. That's why we include this on every single 4walls listing.
