The UK housing market has been buoyant for so long that many of us have forgotten what a slow market is like. Back in the late 80's prices dropped and ‘Sold' boards became a rare sight. Could we be heading back into those gloomy days yet again?
Financial commentators are certainly predicting that there's more doom and gloom to come, although few see a real crash in the housing market, rather a slow down and levelling off of prices that have risen exorbitantly over the past 10 years or so. But many are talking about a market that might stagnate over the next 12 months, especially in view of the fact that mortgage companies are tightening up on their lending policies making it harder to borrow the amount required.
If house prices are set to fall slightly and the market is slow, what can you do to increase your chances of selling? Of course, it depends on your circumstances and what you are hoping to achieve. If selling quickly isn't important, you might want to sit tight and see what happens. On the other hand, if you are in danger of losing the home you want to buy, or financial or work pressures are forcing the sale, then you might be thinking of other options.
Property Rescue make an almost immediate assessment of your property and put an offer on the table for you to accept or reject. The offer will not be the market value, but it will give you some key advantages:
- What you see is what you get – no hidden extras.
- The sale can take place within your time scale, as quickly as a few days if that's what you want.
- You won't have to prepare a Home Information Pack, which alone could save you hundreds of pounds.
- You won't have to pay legal costs on the sale, as Property Rescue take care of that.
- You won't have to pay Estate Agents fees, which will save you thousands.
- You will have certainty about how much you will get for your property and when it will be sold.
All these advantages make selling via Property Rescue a very attractive proposition. If only all property sales were so straightforward! Contact them for an informal chat about your move.
