Sell my House Online

In the good old days prior to the end of 2008, property prices were ever increasing and demand for property was so high people were out bidding each other in order to secure the home. In certain popular areas at the peak there was an average of eight house buyers for each home. In today’s market for some parts of the country there is still a very high demand and scramble for certain properties i.e. a terraced house in Chelsea. For the rest of us the days of a quick house sale are long gone and there is a new need for people to take selling their house into their own hands.

Obviously when using a traditional estate agent there is a complete undetermined time frame that a buyer may wish to purchase your house. What we can tell you is that once a normal buyer has agreed to buy your property it can take around three months for their mortgage application to complete. The specific time frames within the mortgage application are this: it will take approximately 2 weeks for a surveyor to come and value your house. A further two weeks for the bank to fully approve the mortgage application and do all checks. And then usually another couple of weeks for the conveyancing solicitors to exchange documents and cash and therefore fully complete. For a normal sale in today’s climate six weeks is quite average but also a best case scenario, any delays such as a problem with the mortgage application or if the surveyor spots a nasty crack will of course create a delay. If you are concerned with any damage to your home it may be wise to have a surveyor look at it and address any problem before the surveyor from your buyers mortgage lender sees it as a problem.

In terms of dealing with Internet house buyers time frames do vary, what you do have control over is actually finding a buyer for your house who will proceed through to completion. There are a couple of options in terms of time frames and if you can wait at least six weeks until the sale of your house is fully completed you stand a far better chance of getting the highest value for your home. The quickest option of all is to find a true cash house buyer, these are available but at a cost. A cash buyer can complete as soon as they have sent there own internal surveyor and valuer to your home, you will usually fully complete a cash sale within ten days. The cost of doing so is that a true cash buyer will expect at least a 25% -30% discount off the market value of your property. Alternatively we can provide you with a variety of different offers that will allow you to achieve a price far closer to the market value of your home. The best option is to use a company like You Sell Quick who will purchase using a mortgage and that can take at least six weeks to fully compete, however for waiting just a further month you will receive are far fairer and more ethical offer.
