46% of homeowners worry about the stress of selling property

stress of selling property

New research has revealed that 46% of homeowners worry when it comes to the stress of selling property!

Timescales also featured heavily, with 43% of homeowners saying they worry that they won’t be able to sell their home in the time they need to.

Danny Luke, Quick Move Now’s Managing Director, commented:

The research is very telling and is supported by the conversations we have with our customers every day.

Selling a property is a major source of stress for many people, and is frequently quoted as one of the three most stressful life events you can go through.

Time pressure is also a big concern for people – fears that chains will collapse and timescales will not line up, which obviously has financial and practical implications, weigh on homeowners’ minds.

If you’re planning to relocate or have other specific deadlines that you need to meet, selling a property on the open market can be incredibly unpredictable; which is where a genuine cash home buyer like Quick Move Now can help.

For many people, the price they achieve for their property is their main consideration; in fact, 55% of those questioned in the research were concerned about not getting the price they wanted or needed for their property.

If the price you achieve for your property is the most important factor in your sale, a quick sale to a cash home buyer is unlikely to be the right option.

However, for those who experience the other fears mentioned in the research, and who are able to accept a slightly lower price in return for certainty and secure timescales, a quick house sale to a genuine cash home buyer like Quick Move Now is an alternative to the tradition method of selling a property on the open market, relieving stress and time pressure.

Selling to a genuine cash home buyer takes all of the hassle out of selling your property – your sale is guaranteed, with no danger of chain collapse, you have viewings to arrange or negotiations to tackle, no estate agency fees to pay and Quick Move Now will even cover your legal fees. The research doesn’t surprise me, but there are definitely companies like Quick Move Now that can relieve some of those fears and help the sale of your property to be a quick, simple and stress-free experience.

Quick Move Now could buy your property in as little as 7 days or in a timescale that suits you. For more information on how Quick Move Now could help with the sale of your property call the friendly, professional team now on: 0800 068 3366.
