If you've found your way here, it's probably because you're motivated to sell a house quickly.
Traditionally, selling a property to a "retail buyer" is a slow process, involving vendor's and buyer's solicitors swapping paperwork and documents and this process can often take up to three months. It is also worth noting that one is three sales fall through and therefore there is lots of uncertainty when selling a property.
Add that to the lead time that a property currently spends on the market for sale - at the time of writing it is 6 to 8 weeks - and you have a potential wait of 4 months until completion and the money is in your bank account.
It is also worth bearing in mind that the longer a property transaction takes, the more likely it is to "fall out of bed" and then you are back to square one with marketing, viewings, waiting for an offer to come in etc.
When someone is motivated to sell and dealing with stressful circumstances, then four months can seem like a lifetime.
Constantly chasing solicitors for news, worrying that the buyer might experience a change of heart, or their own house sale fall through, or that the buyer's mortgage offer might run out ... these are all things that can cause a sale to fail. Sometimes the property is down-valued and it causes the buyer to lose confidence or the survey reveals a structural issue that puts the buyer off. In the U.K., the sale is not set in stone until exchange of contracts, so the buyer can drop out at any time up to that point and there is really no come-back for the vendor.
On top of that, outside circumstances can affect a buyer - such as they lose their job, or interest rates rise, or they get cold feet ... We've even heard of sales falling out of bed because the couple who were buying the property have decided to split up! So, the longer a sale goes on, the more chance there is of negative outside interference.
However, you can reduce the time to sell your property from four months, to four weeks, or even four days if you decide to sell to a reputable cash buyer like ourselves!
