Estate Agents – The traditional way to sell your house, most people do it this way and there are advantages and disadvantages – good if you have time to wait and your property is prime for owner occupiers

Newspaper Ads – There's typically a particular day your local paper will print a special property section – advertise here to attract buyers, but be warned you will have to handle all the views yourself

Leaflets – For those with some marketing flair, deliver yourself for the really cheap option, or pay from 3p per leaflet to have them delivered by someone else

Postcards – Another self marketing tool, put some up in shops in your local area, it's a very personal approach

Auctions – Most likely to sell, can be volatile in terms of price – if a bidding war erupts over your property you may get a big windfall, if it does not get you well under market value

Local Investors – Great for cash offers and fast sales, find them in the paper, online – the form on the right will put you in contact with some straight away

Online – Facebook, MySpace, gumtree, rightmove, zoopla – sometimes low cost or no cost, sometimes expensive, there are lots of ways to sell your house online – great if you know how the technology works and you're net savvy.
