What Is The Quickest Way To Sell A House?
Given that I am writing on the blog of a property purchasing company, you probably won’t be surprised that I’m telling you National Homebuyers, and other companies like it, offer the quickest way to sell a house. We just do. But, what are the factors that affect the speed with which a house sells?
There are an almost limitless number of suggestions for how to sell your house. Experts have recommended things like varnishing doors, washing cars, cutting grass and buying fresh flowers in an attempt to encourage a purchase.
With Zoopla’s most viewed house for October, with over 800,000 views, still under construction however, it would appear that the most enticing properties for prospective buyers are those that provide a blank canvas.
All-in-all, making your house ‘move-in ready’ and aesthetically neutral and pleasing are all you can do before taking on major DIY projects. After all, there is not much a homeowner can do about consumer confidence or the availability of mortgage finance or any other wider economic factors affecting demand.
Speaking on 25th November, BBC Business Editor Kamal Ahmed noted that “fears of an interest rate rise, the looming general election, tougher rules for mortgage lending and the broad belief that the housing market is over-priced” have all resulted in a cooling of the housing market.
So what are your options if you are after a quick sale?
Well, there are house auctions or there are companies that will buy your house, like National Homebuyers. Property auctions do take longer though and the three main reasons for this are:
1. It can take a considerable amount of time and effort just to find the right auction-house for your property. Do you choose a national or local auction? Does it sell properties of roughly the same value? Are the buyers looking for dilapidated properties they can do up?
2. Auctioneers are like estate agents in that they need time to market the property. This can be in the form of online advertising, pages in their brochure or specific targeted marketing to their database of regulars; all of which costs money and takes time. What’s more, any prudent property investor is going to want to take a look at any prospective property themselves and possibly even have it professionally surveyed and valued so to avoid any unwelcome surprises post-purchase.
3. After the gavel falls settlement completion can take up-to 28 days and is non-negotiable.
All of this information, and much more, is found in our house auctions blog post along with references; as-well as being easily accessible on the web.
Whilst it is true that some people do very well at house auctions – what self-respecting competitor wouldn’t take the opportunity to highlight some of their shortcomings? Besides, we do provide a much quicker solution!
