SAVE £9,000 ON ESTATE AGENT COMMISSION

As we are a not-for-profit website, lighthouse owners are saving on excessive commissions charged by high street estate agents. We are top ranked on the internet in our field and have sold more lighthouse buildings than any other organisation in the UK. We are not an estate agent – just a place where lighthouse owners wishing to sell can be introduced to those who would like to buy. We do have an honourarium when a lighthouse seller achieves a sale via this website. The amount is NOT mandatory. If sellers feel they have received genuine help from us, the often donate between 0.25% for selling their lighthouse building (a quarter of one percent). Whereas a High Street estate agent can typically charges 1.5% to 1.8% + VAT = 2.16% (Which Magazine secret shopper research here).

So a successful £500,000 lighthouse sale would cost the seller £750 to £1,250 via this website as opposed to £8,800 to £10,800 with a traditional estate agent. 

Time to join the top lighthouse selling website?

Time To Change From Using Old Estate Agents (& Old Sun Dials)?

… run by lighthouse owners and friends for fellow pharologists (like us, you may need to look that one up in the dictionary)!. This traditional Northern Lighthouse Board sun dial is not too bad at keeping time. This picture was taken at 3.30pm in the afternoon!

This small section about a high ranking lighthouse website successful selling your building at a cost of £750 instead of you writing “that” cheque to your estate agent of £10,000 might be good timing all around. Maybe time to consider calling us on 0793 557 2803 to see how this website can help you sell your lighthouse property?

LITTLE ROSS ISLAND & LIGHTHOUSE COMPOUND FOR SALE

Between England, Scotland, Northern Ireland & The Isle of Man

Guide: £325,000 – Now Sold

Little Ross Island Lighthouse Compound

Little Ross Island and it’s various lighthouse (and farm/barn) buildings, may be “under offer”, but it is still worthwhile keeping an eye on the current selling progress – in case the place comes back up for sale. Over the past three decades, we have seen, first hand the fact that several lighthouse buildings have come back after the first sale effort falls through. Our very own HQ for this website at Noss Head Lighthouse Station was one such second-time-around sale/purchase.

WHO RUNS THIS WEBSITE AND WHY?

Several readers have asked us this two-part question.

Some of us our a bit reclusive, but here goes…

For our readers who have the dedicated lighthouse property sleuthing ability within their DNA. If you are determined to find one of these lighthouse buildings to live in for yourself, then our special article is a reasonable starting point.

What has Robert Carlyle got to do with finding and buying lighthouse buildings/?

Read on for the back-story…Hamish MacBethPic1Highland Policeman Hamish Macbeth Portrayed By Actor Robert Carlyle

Photo Attribution: BBC 

The light hearted rural police drama featured adventures of the eponymous, eccentric character in uniform, inhabited brilliantly by Robert Carlyle. The BBC series was must-watch television on a Sunday night in the 1990’s.

But here’s the thing. In real life there are actual Hamish Macbeths. You are reading the words of one right here and now. Just exactly as the writer of this segment is tapping them out on the old keyboard for you. Curiously, it is an obscure fact that thanks to a Teuchter version of the Old Bill – and a lot of training at police college, this website has been created. If it were not for a real life Hamish Macbeth, then Lighthouses For Sale or Rent would not be here.
