Is NOW The Best Time To Sell Your Property?
We are already 9 days into January, and already industry experts are looking at how much house prices will increase over the month, however, we need to also realise that prices can’t continue to grow and at some point we will start to see a decline.
Some industry leaders are predicting a ‘housing bubble’ created by the governments controversial Help To Buy scheme, which would lead to a market disaster if it came about.
Nationwide have conducted a study to show that house prices have grown almost double the rate they did last year fuelling the argument that a housing bubble is imminent.
One thing that we often get asked by our customers is whether now is a good time to think about selling their property. Our opinion is that there has never been a better time. If you think about it, because the market is currently at it’s peak, if you sell now you are going to avoid any threat of a bubble and secure a great price for your home.
Selling Your House For Cash Doesn’t A Mean 70% Discount Anymore
When most people hear ‘quick house sale company’ they instantly assume that the company is going to want to take 30-40% of the equity in your property in order to get a quick cash sale. However, this is no longer the case.
In fact, we pay 83-90% of market value every time, and yes that is for cash, and yes, IT IS IN YOUR BANK in 7-10 days time.
If you had your property valued by a genuine cash buying company in the past 6 months and they made you an offer on your home which at the time you though was unacceptable, now could be the time to get a second opinion based on the current economic climate.
Remember, the price of property is currently much higher than 12 months ago, so if you thought about selling for cash then, your offer now could be as much as 20 per cent higher now.
The easiest thing to do is get a free valuation on our website, to see what we would likely pay for your home. You are under no obligation to sell, and our service is completely free every step of the way.
