When you are looking to sell your property, there are four main routes you can take – use an estate agent, sell to a home buyer, take your house to auction or sell it privately.
Each one has its pros and cons, but more is known about the benefits of some than others.
Use a Home Buyer
Home buyers, like Quick Move Now, which has the cash reserves available to buy your property immediately, offer the quickest route for a house sale, so they should definitely be a consideration when you need to move fast.
As with everything, there are a number of things that you can do to ensure you get the best out of your home buyer.
You should always do your homework before enlisting the services of any company and home buyers should be no different.
The internet can provide a wealth of information on every company and you will quickly spot if the company has been getting bad reviews from previous customers. Ask the company to put you in touch in with some of its former clients. If they have done a good job, then people will be happy to share that news with you.
Go and meet the people behind the company logo. Talk to them and ask them questions; you will soon get a feel for whether you like them or not. And talk to a few different companies, which will help you compare the pros and cons of each.
Once you have chosen your home buying company, make sure you get an independent valuation of your property done yourself. Always expect the home buyers to give you an offer that is below the market value, but by knowing what your home would be worth on the open market you can ensure you get the best price you can. Ask the valuing agent for an honest market price to avoid them giving you an inflated figure in the hope that they can get you on their books!
Home buyers make their money by selling your property on for more than you sold it to them for; not by charging you fees or commission. You should also never pay for a survey if the company you are using is a reputable one. Quick Move Now even pays your legal fees. If a company asks for cash up front, avoid it like the plague.
You should always be free to walk away from the deal too, so steer clear of companies who try to tie you in to a deal early on in the process.
Although you will receive a lower price for your property if you sell through a home buyer than if you waited on the open market, you will be saving on estate agent fees and survey costs; you will be guaranteed a quick sale, at a time frame to suit you; and you will avoid the hassle and worry of selling your home in a difficult market.
With the current housing market still looking glum, your house may not sell for months and for some people that just isn’t an option. You could also find that you end up dropping the price two or three times during that time too.
Home buyers offer a real alternative for selling your home in a quick and efficient manner.
