The festivities are over and, until next year at least, people are well and truly fed up with Mariah Carey, mince pies and turkey. Recent history suggests that the turn of the new year often witnesses a surge of activity from buyers and sellers looking to sell their house quickly in favour of a fresh start elsewhere.
Sellers, then, should view the first few months of 2016 as an ideal opportunity to bring their home to market because there is more appetite than at any other point of the year from buyers – figures from Rightmove back up this claim.
So if you’re looking to sell your house quickly, we’d advise you to stay on the ball. The first steps are to have your property valued, find an agent and make your house as presentable as it can be so that it is ready to be marketed across all major property portals as soon as possible.
But as we know, there are few guarantees in life – you could do all of the above and because of the increased competition out there, estimated to be up to 10 per property, be no closer to finding a buyer. We hope for your sake that doesn’t happen.
However, if that’s the case, and for whatever reason time is of the essence, it may be worthwhile seeking an alternative solution. A house buying company, such as ours, can guarantee a sale within 14 days – just give us two weeks and we’ll give you’re your freedom.
Although the cost for that certainty, and something we’re always honest about, is accepting less than you would potentially achieve on the open market.
That said, we also offer an assisted sale route that may just get you closer to the figure you’d realistically hope to achieve. Selling a home depends on a lot of factors, including relentless marketing and persistence during the conveyancing process.
If you want to speak to us about how we can help you sell your house quickly give us a call or request a callback and we’ll be more than happy to discuss how we can get you moving.Back to all articles
