Quick house sale Edinburgh? There's possibly nothing worse than being tied down by a house. A house you can't sell or need to sell quickly. If this applies to you then you'll also know that a house you need to dispose of in a hurry becomes even more problematic when the market is "slow". It's enough to turn your hair grey!
However, as with most things in life - money talks.
Here we talk you through your options if you're trying to sell in Edinburgh and would prefer you sale happened sooner rather than later. We can steer you in the right direction whether you need your property under offer today (helps with your future purchase), must sell by a certain date or require an urgent sale.
Sell your Edinburgh home quickly using solicitor estate agents
Selling through solicitor-estate agents? Solicitors in Edinburgh will probably tell you that the market has probably improved from the same time last year; although it may not feel like that for you. Property is still selling - but entry level properties may struggle to find a property as quickly as their sellers were hoping for. First time buyers are still thin on the ground. Solicitors can conclude missives in hours; but they can't magic up a buyer quite so quickly.
The trouble is that the vast majority of us don't live in one of the "best of type" properties and human nature being what it is, we want the most we can for our home. So the question becomes - how can you get a quick house sale in Edinburgh for your property?
What you must understand
If you still hope to sell through agents you must grasp this: a slow market increases the difference in price paid between the best and worst properties, even if the valuations are the same.
So, if you want a quick house sale in Edinburgh in a downturn it pays to have your property in the best condition possible or at least as presentable as possible. It's much easier to get a quick house sale Edinburgh in a rising market - because all property sells quickly (more or less). It's crucial you get your house looking it's best. If you doubt your own ability to smarten your flat or house up prior to selling - ask for help.
The bottom line? Luck lustre properties will stick on the market, unless they are offered for sale at a relatively lower price. If your property is below par, relative to similar property for sale in your street, or nearby, you must reduce the price if your property "sticks". In these circumstances this will always be a figure well south of the valuation, specified in the Home Report.
This is fact not fiction. We do speak to people who have been trying to sell at their Home Report valuation for 9 months or more...or are selling properties that came onto the market before Home Reports were introduced. That can be OK if you're in no hurry. Must most of us run out of patience. Don't we?
Fed up being stuck and want to get moving? Perhaps you can't risk being stuck?
Meeting important deadlines
It can be tricky selling if you need a quick house sale in Edinburgh by a certain date. When you sell your house through solicitor estate agents you're not always in the driving seat. It is after all a buyer's market out there.
The crux of the problem is that you have to wait for a buyer to make an offer and then hope that the offer doesn't fall through. You can do your best to agree an entry date that suits you, but there are no guarantees you'll be able to. This is especially true when first time /chain free buyers are few and far between.
If your house is already on the market you could try offering incentives for a quick sale. Buyer incentives might include Ikea or John Lewis vouchers, or furniture. Whatever you think will work for the type of buyer you're aiming for. Of course there are deadlines and deadlines. Some are more crucial than others. Leaving the country? You may need the cash from your sale to meet entry requirements. Moving to be closer to a poorly family member? Already abroad? Already own your new property? Then time is of the essence.
In this case selling to a firm specialising in quick house sales in Edinburgh may be worth considering.
Money running out - plan B?
One of the main drivers of people wanting a quick house sale Edinburgh is (ultimately) about money running out. Perhaps you remortgaged because it sounded like a good idea at the time? Or you're moving out of town into a self-build property? Or you're already funding more than one property? Or you can see redundancy just around the corner?
If you are finding it difficult to make ends meet or are facing the prospect of running out money further down the line then contacting local house buying companies could be a realistic alternative. At least you can make enquiries as soon as you think you may need a "back up" plan - a plan B if you like. But remember, if you have the time and money it may still be worth trying to sell through agents. One reason for making this suggestion is that it's the best way of trying to get the price price you can, regardless of what the market is doing.
