How Can I Sell My House Without An Estate Agent? @johnsawyer
There are a few ways in which you can sell your home without an agent in the UK. We have actually recently wrote a full blog on the subject here, should you wish for a bit more information than what is provided in the Q and A.
Selling your house yourself is never an easy task; and one that should not be taken lightly, however you can do it with a bit of time and determination behind you. The first step is to advertise as much as possible. Use free advertising sites like Gumtree, SellersMEETBuyers.co.uk and other free property listing websites.
Once you have advertised as much as you can online, you may want to try offline marketing – put up your own for sale board, and put your own posters and flyers up around town. These are all ways to attract interest in your home.
Ideally you will need to get on the big portals like Rightmove and Zoopla, and the only way of doing this is with and estate agent. However, if you are determined to sell your home yourself, you could use one of the many ‘online’ estate agents, who simply list your property for you on Rightmove and Zoopla and allow you to do the rest of the work for a small fee.
Another alternative is to sell for cash to a cash buying agency like us! We will take care of everything from start to finish – giving you a quick sale and cash in the bank in days!
How can I find a cash property buyer online? @jimmcgee
Thank you for your question. There are a number of ways in which you can find a cash buyer for your home online, one being is to use a company like ours. We can pay cash for property, regardless of the location, condition or the price.
We operate with cash in the purest sense, which means there is no mortgage involved. The benefit to you dealing this way is that we can complete on a sale in 7 to 10 days. Other ways of finding a cash buyer online include sourcing one via an estate agent (which can be time consuming), and advertising yourself on forums or free property advertising websites like SellersMEETBuyers.co.uk.
The disadvantage to this is you don’t really know if the person you are dealing with is genuine, and you can’t be sure you will get the sale that you need. If you want further advice on the matter feel free to call us for a friendly chat and to see if we can help you.
I Need To Sell My House Fast, What Are My Options? @sarahscott
With our service you have multiple options to sell your home quickly. Our first option which is 100% guaranteed and the fastest way to sell any property is to use our cash buying service. With this service you will receive a cash offer from us, if you accept the offer we can guarantee the funds are in your bank in 7 – 10 days.
The downside to this service is that due to the swiftness of the sale, and the risk we are taking in relying on your property selling again, we can’t pay full market value for your home. We will make an offer that is closer to 80% of market value.
Other quick sale options that we can offer are selling at auction (we operate an online auction), selling quickly via the open market, and selling to an investor. None of these are a guaranteed way of selling – and if you need to sell exceptionally quickly then a cash sale is your best route.
Remember, if you want to sell fast and need cash in the bank - you need to deal with a genuine cash buying firm, that can provide you with proof of funds to complete on your sale. We are one of few quick sale companies that offer this.
How Much Will It Cost To Sell My House? @jc
The cost of selling your home will vary depending on the method of sale that you decide to use. The sale routes that we can help you with are as follows; cash sale, estate agent, auction, lease option and a match up with an investor. Each method of sale will have a different cost.
If it is purely estate agent and related costs that you are interested in and want to know more about you can read into that in full detail here. This house sale calculator goes into detail about the associated costs with selling a property on the open market.
When it comes to selling to us for cash, we pay all of the fees and costs. So you don’t have a penny to pay. This includes all of your legals and solicitor fees. Lease options are exactly the same, costs are generally covered for the seller. Auctions and open market vary from sale to sale, and it is always advisable that you speak to one of our advisors for costs involved.
