|Converted And Unconverted Barns For Sale In The UK And Abroad|
|Born In A Barn
Barns etc is a UK based property website specialising in barns and related agricultural buildings such as windmills and converted stables.
We are not an estate agents and do not arrange valuations or viewings - we simply provide a market place for sellers of barns and for those interested in buying them.
If you are selling a barn or you are an estate agent with a barn for sale either in the United Kingdom or abroad, you can list your property on the barns etc website.
Unlike other property websites, we do not charge a monthly fee - our £89 listing fee is a one off payment and your barn or related property remains on our website until sold or withdrawn by the vendor.
Barns etc's selling package offers many features as standard that other property websites consider "extras", including up to five photographs per listing. You also receive a unique web page on the barns etc website which contains your property details and your property will be listed in the appropriate area guide too with a photo.
Visitors to the barns etc website can view properties free of charge. If a visitor is interested in more information on a particular property, they will contact the vendor (or estate agent) directly - e-mail and / or telephone contact details are listed with each property.
If a sale results - fantastic! No commissions or fees will be payable to barns etc should your property sell via someone visiting this site, but we would love to hear from you with your success stories relating to barns etc.
Only barns and related buildings can be listed on barns etc. If you have any doubts as to whether your property qualifies, please e-mail us and we will let you know. We reserve the right to decline any properties that do not match this website's property profile.
Please note that although we do our best to ensure listings are accurate, property details are given for guidance and information only and are subject to change without notice.
Barns etc also offers The Barn Trade And Services Directory where barn owners can find companies and individuals who actively want to serve the barn owning community with oproducts and services.
Barns etc was founded by Rhona Marshall, a barn owner and married mother of two, in April 2003.
Barns etc will never be the biggest property website, but it will always strive to be the best website relating to the buying and selling of barns.

|The Office Of Fair Trading And Estate Agents
The Office Of Fair Trading has recently issued guidelines regarding fees payable to sole agents if a vendor sells the property through a property website.
If a vendor has a "sole agency" agreement with a high street estate agent, he or she can sell the property himself to a person not introduced by this agent and not have to pay the agent his fee.
However, if the property is sold via another "estate agent", then the vendor would have to pay two sets of fees.
The Office Of Fair Trading has discovered that many internet property retailers claim not to be estate agents but are, in the OFT's view, doing estate agency work. In effect, they are estate agents.
Hence, a high street agent would be able to claim his fee if a property was sold via such an internet property retailer, but not if sold via one not carrying out estate agency work.
Barns Etc does not fall within the legal definition of an estate agent and does not carry out estate agency work.
We do not offer for sale boards
We do not send out property particulars or arrange viewings
We do not receive queries from potential sellers or buyers and pass on details to our clients
With Barns Etc you pay a one-off listing fee until your property has sold or is withdrawn from the market. There is nothing more to pay. Interested parties will then contact the vendor (or the vendor's agent if their details are listed) directly.
For more details concerning sole agency agreements please see trhe Office Of Fair Trading's website.
