The first quarter of 2016 saw a huge surge in activity in the UK housing market. The average price in the UK rose by 5.3% to just short of the £200,000 mark at £198,564.
Unsurprisingly, the highest price rises came in the Outer Metropolitan area around London with house prices rising by a hefty 11.9%, closely followed by London at 11.2%. The Outer South East saw prices increase by 8%, the South West by 5.5%, and East Anglia at 5.4%. The North West saw little difference with an increase of just 0.2%. Meanwhile, both the North and Scotland saw a price decrease of 1.4% and 0.5% respectively. Thus, there was good and bad news for prospective house buyers and sellers across the country.
However, there was good news for those looking to sell property for cash. Thanks to Brexit this is the more appealing option than ever before. If you are looking for a cash buyer, don’t want to be tried down by broken chains or don’t want to wait for a mortgage to be put in place then you’re in luck and thanks to this, more people are looking to sell their house for cash.
But what does it mean to sell your house for cash and what is a cash buyer?
A cash buyer doesn’t mean you’ll just be handed a suitcase of cash for your house, but instead it means a company that has the funds in place to purchase a portfolio without the need for any external assistance, for example, a mortgage from a bank. This allows them to be free of a chain and as a result, they are able to offer cash for houses instantly, it joins a portfolio rather than being a personal investment which means the house doesn’t need to be redecorated or improved to secure the sale.
Of course, the term cash buyer sounds appealing but you can be forgiven for feeling apprehensive and the term can sound somewhat shady, however, with Open Group Property, you’re in safe hands.
