    I would like to try and offer my house for sale independently and want
    to know what is the most popular property site that will let me list
    it.

    Also, does anybody know where I can buy a 'for sale' sign onto which I
    can add a telephone number and maybe a web address. I am looking for
    the type that is taped to a railing or nailed to a pole.

    No idea, none seemed to have great profile or number of listings when
    we moved last year. TBh, the most impotant thing is that they get the
    properties onto at least one of the big sites like Rightmove etc, since
    that is where people will mostly be looking.

    Should be easy enough to find them using google (and if you can't, what
    is the point of putting your house on them, no one else will find them)
    round here I've seen a couple of for sale sign s with a web site that
    looks like it might be one of these sell yourself places, presumably
    they provide the sign - maybe other sites do as well?

    There was a thread recently that was partly on this topic. Google Groups
    is your friend

    We sold ours through www.houseweb.co.uk, it cost us 120 for unlimited
    adverts and a sign (you can get cheaper package without the sign). They
    stick the advert on fish4homes, erm and other popular ones (forget which
    exactly).
