Sell your house to a house-buying company
House-buying companies can be a guaranteed way to sell your house. House-buying companies generally work like this: Once you contact them they agree with you, firstly, a fixed price for your property, and secondly, a timescale. Once you accept their offer – which can sometimes be made in as little as 24 hours – you’re guaranteed to receive the agreed amount of money within an agreed period of time.
Another advantage of using house buying services is that you don’t need to bother about presentation. Most house-buying companies aren’t bothered if your house needs repairs or isn’t tidy. You don’t have to put up with viewings. It’s completely confidential – no one will know you’re selling. The buying company might also be able to include settling your expenses and legal fees within the deal.
The main disadvantage of selling to a house-buying company is that they are likely to offer less than a normal home owner would.
At the end of the day, for a house to sell, you need at least one buyer who is both willing and able to buy. In a cool property market that buyers are likely to be much more difficult to find than in a hot one. But if your property just won’t sell there is a lot you can do to help sell it.
