HOW IT WORKS
You choose a DIY marketing package and pay a set fee in advance for marketing. DIY manages all the tricky stuff for you, like creating professionally-designed print ads and signs, commissioning professional photography and sourcing council files. You remain in control and get to showcase your home for sale on your terms.
You work with a trained and licensed DIY Guide throughout the process.Your Guide will help you set a sales price, decide what sales method to use, advise you how to stage your home for sale and connect you with tradespeople who can complete jobs you can’t or don’t want to do yourself.
