We’re on the countdown to Christmas, with only 30 days left to the day we like to share in the company of all the family and loved ones.


If you’re one of the people out there who have pushed aside thoughts of braving the shops and planning Christmas dinner because you hope to sell your house beforehand, you’re running out of time.

What could be more worrying is if your house has been listed for over three months and still not sold.

According to a recent report from Post Office Money Mortgages, homes across the UK will typically sit on the market for 91 days before they sell.

There are many reasons that could be behind the struggle, the local property market and over-valuing are only the most obvious reasons.

More than 41% of vendors have had to cut the asking price on their property, according to research from Nottingham Building Society.

However, by that same token, 27% of vendors achieved a higher price than expected.

Ultimately price is not the only thing to affect the length of time it takes to sell a property, it’s just one of a series of contributing factors.

Where waiting is no longer an option, turning to a cash house buying company like webuyanyhouse.co.uk is definitely worth considering.

Our offer may be lower than what you could get via a traditional sale, but we always offer a fair price. And we can complete on your sale in as little as two weeks!

If you’d like to find out more about our service and how we could help, call our team or fill out a form online and we’ll call you back.
