Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Upload Abode.

Upload Abode (Upload Abode LTD) is an estate agent based in Motherwell covering central Scotland. We offer a high value product and service at a fixed price.

Upload Abode is a modern estate agent. We don’t spend money on high street shops in various locations and work from our central office in Motherwell. The money we save is passed back to you our customers by way of lower fees. We charge one flat fee which can be paid upfront or on completion and don’t charge you a percentage of the sale price when sold. We offer all the same benefits of a traditional estate agent but understand that over 92% of people now start their search for new homes online and we have built our business to reflect that. We have also introduced new technology like 3D Virtual Tours and Facebook advertising to further advance your potential buyers’ experience.

We provide a market appraisal which will give guidance on the potential price you may achieve, information on other properties selling in your area and any hints or tips that we can pass on that will help you achieve more when your property is placed on the market.

You can sell with Upload Abode in 2 easy ways. Payment on completion for £995 or Payment upfront for £895. All prices are inclusive of VAT and have no hidden extras.

Unlike most online estate agents we believe photographs, floor plans and For Sale boards are all essential when selling a home and that’s why they are included as standard. We will never charge you extra for these must have items.

We work in partnership with professional photographers as we believe great pictures are one of the main things that will drive people to visit your house.

No. We pride ourselves in being 100% open, honest and transparent when it comes to everything in our business, particularly our fees. Take a look at our fees page for more information on what is included.

Once we have visited your home and you are happy to instruct Upload Abode, we will ask you to sign our electronic contract and make payment online. On payment on completion, we will invoice your solicitor and we will be paid directly from the profits of your house sale.

We aim to get all properties listed within 5-7 working days of the contract being signed. This is dependent on the home report as we cannot market any home for sale without a valid home report.

When selling a home in Scotland it is a legal requirement to have a home report before your property goes on the market. We understand the importance of getting your home to market quickly and work with one of the leading chartered surveyors in Scotland. We can arrange your home report and even help you complete the property questionnaire.

If your buyer requires a mortgage than a mortgage valuation report should be included. If you use our surveyor your home report will include a property valuation.

Your property will be advertised on all the major property websites including Rightmove, Zoopla, S1homes and 100s more.

We write and produce your advert for all property websites.

Once your advert goes live you can contact us at any time to make any changes. We recommend any changes are requested within the first few days.

We arrange all viewings of your property as well as gather feedback.

We believe nobody knows your home better than you and you are in the best position to conduct viewings. We advise and provide guidance on how to conduct your own viewings.

As your estate agent we negotiate any offers on your behalf. Once you accept an offer we pass all relevant information to your solicitor. If you do not already have a solicitor we can recommend one our partners.
