Woman sells home for £1

When selling a property, most homeowners prepare themselves to be landed with significant agency fees, but one Bathgate resident found the process wasn’t nearly as costly as expected. Mrs Michelle Vassie was informed that, contrary to expectations, she would be charged only £1 by the agents organising her sale. She was the winner of a prize draw established by solicitors and estate agents Caesar and Howie – the Central Scotland Law Group. Each seller who listed their property with Caesar and Howie during the first quarter of 2007 was entered into the draw, the firms explains, with Mrs Vassie emerging as the winner. “We were absolutely delighted and very surprised to hear we had won,” she said. It is the first time that Mrs Vassie has used Caesar and Howie’s estate agent and conveyancing services, which she described as “friendly, efficient and professional”. “Winning the prize is just the icing on the cake. The money we saved will definitely come in handy for the new house!” she concluded. Caesar and Howie offers a house sales services which includes a free pre-sales valuation and computer matching marketing service.
