Three Methods to Get a Quick Property Sale

It seems that the subject of selling houses is constantly in the news and many homeowners are worrying about long, laborious and expensive property sales. But with the right approach you can get a quick property sale at a price you’re happy with. Here’s how:


The Auction House

Selling your home at auction can be an effective way to get a quick sale, but it doesn’t necessarily make the process of actually exchanging any faster. Whether you choose an auction house or an estate agent, finalising can take many weeks or even months. Auctions are often a good option for homes that need a lot of work as they’re usually more popular with developers and contractors, but if your house is in poor condition it will be reflected in the price you get. You’ll also need to give a percentage of your sale price to the auction house and pat solicitor’s fees.

The Estate Agent

Estate agent sales are notoriously long and laborious and to be honest, there’s very little you can do to get things speeded up. However, one tack you can try at the initial outset is decorating or renovating to get your home to a ‘turnkey’ standard, which can be very expensive. Although an ‘ideal home’ will attract more potential purchasers and make a sale more likely, the process of exchanging could still take several months and of course, you’ll need to stump up for solicitor’s and estate agents fees.

The Cash Buyer

Cash home buying companies are relatively new to the UK but are fast gaining popularity. A cash home buying company will give you a price for your home based on its current valuation and if you accept, they do everything involved with the sale on your behalf, including dealing with solicitors and all the legislation surrounding a sale. You don’t need to decorate or renovate because your home is being purchased by a company, as opposed to an individual. In addition, home buying companies do not charge a fee for their services so the price you get will be the exact amount of money you receive – a much clearer and more straightforward way to do things than other sales methods.

Sell House Fast? Furious.

So today I decided to try contacting a few companies that claim to be able to buy any house for cash. My house has been valued at one point at £250,000. One of these companies made me an offer of £100,000! That is a drop of £150k which myself and my wife are obviously not happy with. I don’t know how they have the ordacidy to try and buy at those prices.

The companies I tried first were:




These three made me very low offers for my house. Considering the amount of work I have put into the property, the vast land that comes with the property, I honestly found their offers to be offensive to myself and my wife.

I have found one company that I am interested in giving a try, and aim to give them a call tomorrow. The site is https://www.readysteadysell.co.uk/

This company claim to be able to pay better prices and buy in 7 days. This sounds very reasonable to me so we will see how it goes. I will be sure to update this blog if I get anywhere with Ready Steady, however i’m not counting my chickens!

Is anyone actually reading this??

Orchard Farm, Northumberland

It’s been almost 9 months of trying to sell our wonderful property in sunny (or not so) Northumberland. Close to the busy little town of Hexham, our farm has been our home for over 40 years, but sadly due to the children leaving home, it’s time for myself and my wife to downsize. We are currently looking for a bungalow or looking to move into sheltered accommodation, due to my wifes deteriorating health.


The property itself is in good condition, and over the years I personally have done many updates to keep it modernised. However, as of late my own health has been questionable, hence the reason for needing a quick house sale.

For the past 9 months, I have been using local estate agents in Hexham to assist with the sale, but i’m really not getting anywhere with them. I don’t want to name names, however most of the companies on this page we have tried selling with! http://www.rightmove.co.uk/estate-agents/Hexham.html

Our next hope is to try some ‘cash house firms’ and we have been recommended by a neighbour to try this route. I’m personally not sure on the whole idea, and feel the offer will be incredibly low. Who know’s! My next ‘rant’ will be regarding this so please stay tuned.

Also if you are interested in buying our lovely property we are looking for around £225,000. This is with a lot of land and our lovely little farm.
