Problems when selling a property: Resolve them with a cash sale. Thu, 06 Feb 2014 13:12

If you're looking to sell your property quickly, it's worth taking a few moments to understand the different channels you can sell through.

Selling property through a High Street estate agent is the most common route, however the majority of home owners are not aware that companies such as ourselves exist.

The first route involves:

1.  Doing some research as to which estate agent you want to work with based on the results they have achieved in your area, albeit it is hard to know what they are actually selling as opposed to 'just marketing'.

2.  Commissioning the estate agent to sell your house.  They will need to attend for a valuation, to take pictures, and possibly a floor plan too.

3.  Getting an EPC done for your property before they can even start advertising and viewings.  (All properties for sale must have a valid EPC).

4.  Undertaking any remedial works or maintenance to get your property up to scratch. This may involve redecorating or other measures if your property is not in good condition.

5.  Starting the viewing process and keeping your property clean and tidy so that it will be seen in the best possible light. If you have children or pets, this might be a problem and inconvenience.

6.  Accepting an offer from a buyer who is "proceedable" i.e no property to sell or with their own property "under offer".  They must also prove that they have the necessary deposit funds if they are using mortgage finance, or proof of cash if they claim to be a cash buyer.

7.  Sleepless nights hoping that the sale does not fall through. According to our research, more than 25% of property sales fall through.

8.  If the offer does fall through, then you need to start the process again, and this could be 6 months down the line. If the property is empty, you are paying the mortgage (where applicable) and all outgoings and upkeep.

9.  Waiting for completion, which typically takes 3 months - more if a "chain" is involved.  If you are moving on yourself, any delay could put the purchase of your next property at risk!

10.  On completion, paying estate agent fees of around 2% plus VAT plus your solicitors fees, typically around £1,000 plus VAT.

Alternatively, if you are motivated to sell your house quickly, and want a hassle-free and simple sale, you can contact a company like Dream House Buyers.

1.  Give us a call on 0800 1577 497.

2.  We may not require to view your property, and will make a cash offer for your consideration within 48 hours of your call.  We typically offer up to 85% of the market value. This is the price which we feel the property is actually worth supported by evidence and our extensive market research.

3.  If you agree to our offer, advise us of the completion date you want and we will have the cash in your bank on that date.  We can complete in as little as 48 hours or any time frame to suit you. We have bought many properties within 7 days and rest assured we will work to the timetable that suits our customer.

4.  Relax knowing that your property sale is in the bag, and that you did not have to pay estate agent fees or solicitor's fees (as we will pay your legals costs!)

We understand that most people want to achieve the maximum price for their property, but if the conventional route fails and it may have a financial or other negative impact (such as losing the house you are moving to), then a cash offer is a possible solution. Our mantra is: speed, guarantee, simplicity.

Understanding what your options are mean that you will find the best solution for your personal circumstances and we are happy to help and advise at no obligation to you.
