Discover the difference with Simon Blyth

0% commission to sell

A no sale, no fee basis; nothing to pay to enter your property into one of our auctions and nothing to pay whether your property sells or not.

An undisclosed reserve price

This figure is set separately to your marketing price to ensure you reach a value you are happy for the property to sell for.

A fixed date to sell & move

These realistic yet fixed timescales are set from the start, to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible to time frames that benefit all.

Achieve market value

Due to increased activity, a competitive bidding war may ensue to win your property, naturally driving up the final selling price, achieving the best price possible for you.


We offer both traditional and modern methods with flexible routes for sellers looking to sell quickly, heighten interest in their property, or add security to the process that the open market may not be able to offer.
