It's great that you are going to advertise on your website, however, I have multiple websites that can link to 27 countries which gives greater exposure. Who is going to handle the transaction once you have a buyer? What about the legal implications of withholding 10% for taxes if you have a foreign buyer?
With the international markets expanding, don't limit yourself just to England and the US.
The key to selling your home is marketing and one website alone will not necessarily be your answer. Your 70s sleek must be marketed in such a way to appeal to a greater pool of qualified buyers. I am a member of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing and would like the opportunity to discuss a marketing strategy with you further.

No worries though, I feel this real estate(correction) is almost over. That is my opinion. I am not a Realtor but a seller/buyer. But..........why not keep your home, hire a realtor to rent it or even consider a lease option to a potential buyer.
I really enjoy the information here on Trulia.com question thread. Thank you to all the Realtors and experienced seller and buyers.
Take the mystery out of whether or not your asking price is correct. Pay $350 for a full appraisal from a licensed appraiser that lives in Bellaire Beach. Then after you see a fairly good estimate of the real value of your house, list it no more than $10k higher. Then hire a cleaning person weekly to assure your house is spotless. Then hire someone to give you expert advice on staging. If your furnishings are tired you may actually sell quicker and for more money if you empty the house. Then make sure you have a lockbox so realtors can show it at a moments notice. You need to keep the house in immaculate condition at all times.
Good luck with your sale! You can also check the instant values on http://www.cyberhomes.com and http://www.zillow.com. I would pay the minimal $350 to get an "expert" opinion, however before deciding on a listing price.
