You have made the decision to sell your house. You want to move on with your life, and you want to do it now. So what is the quickest way to sell your house?
The good news is, there are different paths you can take to selling your home. The bad news is, most of them will take longer than you may be willing to wait!
If you want to move on with your life sooner, rather than later, then the most convenient solution will be to sell your house quickly by accepting a cash offer, and here’s why:
Selling on the open market is slow and unpredictable
Once you have made the decision to sell, to sell your home on the open market, you will have to get the house valued and agree a market price.
From this point, it will take another few days to formerly instruct an agent to start marketing the property. They will need to erect the For Sale board, take photos and measurements for floorplans and get the property listed online.
Then you wait for prospective buyers to view the property and for the all-important offers to start coming in. If your property attracts a lot of interest from the outset, you could find a buyer in days, however, some properties can remain on the market for months, a common scenario in the current climate.
Once you receive an offer you are happy to accept, there is then at least another 8 weeks to wait before reaching completion, and that is if everything goes to plan and there are no glitches in the property chain.
Selling a property on the open market is certainly a long process, and often a very stressful one, so if you want to get moving soon, this may not be a particularly attractive option for you.
Selling your home privately can be a challenge
There are some considerable cost savings to be gained from selling your house privately, but in today’s uncertain times it could be a risk if you don’t have the clout and audience that an established property agent would have to market your property effectively. This could be a good option if you have a buyer waiting in the wings, but if you don’t then it means managing the advertising, the viewings and the legals yourself. It is time-consuming, so you will need to weigh-up if you have the time and the know-how to get yourself in a buyer in the timescale you have set yourself to move on.
A successful property auction sale requires preparation
One benefit to selling your property at auction is that you as the seller are in control. Achieving a sale at auction above the reserve price will very much depend on the efficiently of your Solicitor having prepared a comprehensive auction legal pack for prospective buyers prior to the auction day. This is certainly a faster-sell option than to sell privately or to sell on the open market, but it will still take time for the auctioneers to market the property through their email and online catalogue prior to the auction. Once the auction takes place and you have a buyer, it will take about 20 days for the sale to complete.
