Mrs Aspinall – Inherited Property
Quick Move Now was able to buy Sandra’s inherited bungalow in just a few weeks
Wigan, North West England
When Sandra inherited a two-bedroom bungalow from her father she was keen to sell it quickly. She already owned her own home and didn’t want the cost or responsibility of maintaining two properties.
Sandra had assumed that the bungalow would sell fairly quickly, but after two years on the market the property had received very little interest.
Worried about the unforeseen financial commitment of maintaining an empty house, Sandra felt it was time to start exploring other options.
Sandra contacted Quick Move Now and was impressed by our cash home buying service. We were able to complete the sale just 18 days after she accepted our formal offer.
Sandra explains: “As a homeowner myself, the cost of maintaining an additional property was becoming too much to handle.
“I had not expected the property to stay empty for as long as it did, and soon was faced with a 50% increase in council tax, on top of existing insurances and energy bills. These monthly costs impacted my quality of life and took priority over other things I should have been enjoying.
“Being able to sell this property within a matter of weeks was a huge relief for me. What’s more, within two hours of completion the money had been deposited in my bank account. The whole process went like clockwork. Quick Move Now really helped me move on with my life.
“Quick Move Now is an industry leader and this was demonstrated from beginning to end.
“I knew I was in good hands and I’m pleased with the value I received for the property. I’ve already recommended their services to my friends!
Rhys Luke, Quick Move Now’s Purchasing Director, commented:
Sandra was in a difficult but not uncommon situation. It is easy to assume that selling an inherited property with an estate agent will be quick and easy, but that’s often not the case. Many inherited properties will be dated, which is likely to affect how quickly they attract a buyer, but you may be reluctant, or unable, to spend money on an inherited property before selling.
It is common to underestimate both the cost and time commitment involved in maintaining an empty property, so being unable to secure a buyer can create a great deal of stress.
Because we purchase property with our own cash funds, we are able to buy any property, in any condition, anywhere in England or Wales. Any genuine cash offer will be at below market value, but in return you get a quick and guaranteed sale, and the money can be in your bank account in as little as 7 days. For many, it’s the ideal solution for an inherited property.
