Is there such a thing in 2008 as a quick house sale? The heady days of 2006/07 when houses were being snapped up for over asking price and often the subject of sealed bids is over, for now anyway. So is a quick house sale a thing of the past?
House prices fall in the UK for the fourth month in a row, as higher interests rates have dented homebuyers’ confidence, according to new statistics. According to property website Hometrack, the average house price in England and Wales fell by 0.3% to £174,700.
Selling your house can be very stressful – the process can take a long time, and there is always the risk of getting stuck in a chain, meaning that you are dependant on your buyer selling their own house before they can complete the purchase of yours. There is also the risk of a chain breaking down at the last minute because their own property sale has fallen through, which means you have to start all over again.
The number of companies offering fast house sales has increased recently, and there are now over 200 such companies in this sector, up from around 25 just a year ago. So why are people looking for a quick house sale?
If you find yourself in severe financial troubles, the only solution to the problems may well be to sell your assets. For most people, the main asset of any significant value will be a house or flat.
When this property is your family home, this can be a very difficult decision to have to make. The thought of having to give up your biggest asset is bad enough, but when that asset is your home as well this makes the decision even more difficult.
The sale of my property was well managed with regular communication and advice and support provided throughout the process. The company also provided legal support through one of their panel solicitors which was professional friendly and reassuring during what was a complex sale. They are trustworthy and reliable and I would recommend this company to anyone looking to sell their property. Thank you for making this a much easier process.
