Yesterday I wrote about how I’d spoken to my mum about starting a business together. Of course, any business needs some kind of start-up capital no matter what it is you plan to do. I also discussed that we’re currently in the process of selling our house and it is here that there is a possible chance to be creative and free up some funds.
Our estate agent currently has one week left to try and sell our house before their contract ends. So basically the probability is that they won’t be able to sell it. What we are thinking of doing instead then is selling the house ourselves, saving upwards of £8,000 in estate agent fees and putting that money to good use.
As it so happens, selling your home privately is something that has been on the rise in the last couple of years (there’s even a TV show about doing just that at the moment) and it was something that we discussed previously. It fits nicely not just because of the money to be saved but because it will give me a chance to take on some more responsibility as well.
We’ll see how this pans out.
