How to Sell Your Home Fast in Any Market

Getting a quote in any type of market can be difficult, but when the market is declining and supply is larger than demand, finding a buyer for your home becomes even harder.

Generally, you’ll be able to sell your home faster by lowering the price, and there are a number of specialist estate agents now that are able to give you cash for a fast sale – something that a lot of homeowners can understand the benefits of.

No matter the kind of market that you are looking to sell your house in, there are things you can do to find a good buyer for your home quickly and effectively. Whether it’s improving the aesthetics of your home or working with a reliable property company who will provide you with a quick sale, here are a few of the best things you can do and the benefits of working with an established buyer.

Stand Out from Your Neighbours
Although being too different could end up going against you, adding features to your home which make it stand out from all of the other houses on the street will attract attention from potential buyers and also make it more memorable.

Consider adding custom features or designs, such as high-grade windows, a new roof, unusual landscaping designs or even adding an extension onto your home or installing a swimming pool in your back garden if you’ve got the space for it.

Any improvements or changes that you make to your home in order to make it stand out from the neighbouring properties should be practical and also improve the home’s aesthetic value by using colours and designs that are attractive and appealing to the widest audience.

As well as being attractive and practical, they should also complement the home and any other amenities, such as building a patio area adjacent to an outdoor swimming pool or adding a conservatory if your home has a large garden area.

One in three mortgages to expire after retirement age

It has recently been reported that more than one in three new mortgages being taken out today will extend beyond the borrower’s 65th birthday, the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) has said.

Extending mortgage terms and the older age at which buyers are now able to climb on to the property ladder mean that nearly 35% of new home loans are not expected to be redeemed until the borrower has passed the nominal retirement age of 65, the CML reported on its website. In light of the financial crash we must ask ourselves, is this sensible lending?

The articles goes on to say that in recent times, a growing proportion of mortgages extending beyond the age of 65 have been taken out by home movers, now accounting for around half the total. This is very concerning if borrowers do not have sufficient repayment vehicles to take care of outstanding mortgage balances following retirement. This situation also adds significant pressure on those over the age of 65 to continue working to ensure the mortgage repayments are being serviced if they do not have the funds to redeem it in full.

Buy or Sell, Which Comes First?

Trying to sell your home at the same time as buying a new one can be a challenge that often seems impossible, as there are so many variables needed to make both processes perfectly align. Realistically, one will happen before the other. There aren’t many of us that are in a position to buy before we sell, but selling before you buy has many clear advantages.

Buying a new home can be a difficult time in itself, but naturally that process also has to run alongside selling your current home. For the majority of us, this means legal fees, stress and worry. Having to handle paperwork, research and deadlines for both processes around the same time can be eased by the structure of selling first.

Here at UK Home Buyers, we offer a proven and effective process to aid in quick house sale. Here’s a breakdown of the advantages of selling before you buy. Continue reading
