There are many reasons why you might want to sell your home quickly; perhaps you need a quick sale to move into your dream property, or relocate abroad. Maybe you’re getting divorced, or inherited the property and just want it sold fast. Or it could be that you’re trying to avoid repossession…
Whatever the reason, there are a number of things you can do to get a quick sale:
You can ask a local estate to come and view your property with no obligation, and advise both market price and a quick-sale price. This will give you an idea of how much you’d get for your home.
Don’t just go with the first price you get – ask at least three different agents to give you their opinion, so you have a good understanding of the market value. Then you can be sure what is a fair price for your home.
This doesn’t mean you can’t negotiate price – but if you want a quick sale, be realistic about the value of your home.
Simple things like a coat of paint can make all the difference. Make sure your home is clean and tidy so that you can present it in the best possible light.

Many people think that estate agents are the only way to go. But this isn’t your only option. Estate agents have their value, but this isn’t necessarily the quickest, nor least stressful way to sell your home. If you want to sell fast, then it’s worth exploring other options.
Of course, the world is a smaller place these days and there’s the option to try and sell yourself, via online selling sites and social media. Just be prepared for a lot of work, making appointments, marketing your property, answering enquiries and so on.
You’ll need to ensure that before you accept any offers, you consider if the buyer has the means to complete – do they have a mortage offer? Have they got a house to sell, and how long is their chain?
Invariably, this isn’t always the quickest option.
A quick property sell company (like us! 🙂 ) will give you a cash price for your property, and arrange a quick sale. They will likely have investors and buyers lined up ready to purchase your property now. This is considerably quicker than finding a home buyer through an estate agent, you don’t have a chain to consider.
There are pros and cons to this approach. Some companies will offer you a price that’s less than market value, or drop the price at the last minute just before completion, so do your research and make sure you find a reputable firm who will stick to their end of the bargain.

Have you considered a lease option sale? This would involve selling your house, but remaining there under a lease agreement or having a company take over the mortgage and lease it to another family whilst offering you a fixed purchase price.
