4 Alternative Ways to Sell Your Home Fast
If you want to sell your house quickly, you’re in the right place. At SOLD.CO.UK we understand that you may be in a position where waiting months to sell your home is not ideal. Some of our customers want a quick sale to secure a dream house they have their eye on, whereas others want to sell an inherited property or free up some cash. There are countless reasons as to why a quick house sale could be the correct choice for you. Fortunately, there are a variety of different options available. Below, we take a look at the different ways you could sell your house fast so you can decide which route to sale would suit you best.
Change your estate agent
Selling your home with a traditional high street agent has its advantages and disadvantages. One of the reasons our customers come to SOLD.CO.UK is because an estate agent is struggling to sell their home on the open market. Some homeowners have found themselves waiting months and months to no avail.
If you have done all you can to make your home attractive to buyers and believe you have decided on a realistic asking price with your estate agent perhaps focus on the following:
- Is your estate agent marketing your home effectively?
- Can you see your home listed on their website and other property portals?
- Are the photographs and description of your home accurate?
If you answer ‘no’ to any of these questions it could be time to consider changing to another estate agent. Have conversations with different agents in your area and check out their reviews online. Having a proactive agent who keeps you in the loop is highly valuable.
Use a cash house buyer
Whether an individual or a company, cash house buyers purchase your home straight from you using the funds they have available. This hassle-free way of selling means there is no chain, just a simple transaction between yourself and the buying party. Typically, selling to a cash house buyer is cheaper than an estate agent because there a fewer fees attached to the sale.
At SOLD.CO.UK our Custom Purchase route to sale is our cash house buyer offering. We buy your property ourselves for cash. We can guarantee to sell your home in a timeframe that suits you and the process is fully managed by us, meaning you are kept informed of progress at all times. Furthermore, you won’t have to spend a penny, any route to sale with SOLD.CO.UK is free.
Sell your house at auction
Auctions have become a popular way to sell, particularly for those who has second homes or inherited properties. Other properties you typically see listed for auction are those that need serious renovations or that have legal implications attached to them. However, anyone call sell their home at a property auction. Selling via an auction takes an average of 10 weeks, which is significantly shorter than a high street agent. Furthermore, due to the bidding process, there is potential to gain more money than expected. However, there is no guarantee that your home will sell – if the hammer falls and there’s a bid, you’re in luck.
Property auctions aren’t confined to a specialist auction house. Today, you can auction your house online too. As part of our Enhanced Listing route to sale, SOLD.CO.UK can run a 30-day house auction for your property as well as advertising it to our database of cash buyers. As with both our ways of selling your home quickly, we completely manage the process.
Opt for an online estate agent
Over the past few years online estate agents have skyrocketed in popularity. Many people were finding commission and fees charged by some traditional estate agents intolerable and took a large portion out of the final sale price of their home. Some online estate agents charge a one-off fee, anything between £300 and £1,500. Others, like us at SOLD.CO.UK, don’t charge a penny and we even cover your legal fees.
We understand that some people can be put off by not seeing an agent face-to-face like with a high street estate agent. However, due to our services being fully managed, your SOLD.CO.UK agent will keep you informed at all times and can help you achieve the fast sale you want.
