Has anyone else noticed the novel approach that one Ventnor home-owner has taken in selling their property?

View For Sale (And House Thrown In)Rather than marketing the the actual house, the home-owner (a friend of ours) has made the decision to focus on the view from the property. After all, it’s one of Ventnor’s biggest selling points.

As with many properties in Ventnor, the view from this one in Upper Gills Cliff Road is stunning.

It looks out over the Victorian rooftops across town, and then beyond to the huge expanse of beautiful blue sea – or rather dark and atmospheric – if you’re looking today.

As the belt buckles are tightening – we wonder how many others will take the sale of their homes into their own hands and cut out the middle man?

We did just that before we moved and although it doesn’t necessarily remove the stress levels, it certainly keeps the costs much lower.

We wish this inventive homeowner (and friend) the best of luck in selling their property and hope that their novel approach attracts lots of interest.

they could try raffling the house. i’ve seen similar schemes publicised over the years but AFAIK enough tickets are rarely sold. ———- A couple are putting up their luxury six-bedroom home as the prize in a competition which would also see thousands going to charities.
