Are you looking to buy a new property but have concerns about listing your property on the market before you find your next home? Find out how we solve this problem.
Buying and selling property is often considered one of the most stressful times in someones life, hence why it's not something we do everyday!
Add into the mix, more people with their own properties and the stress levels really can begin to rise.
Having an Estate Agent who can help guide you through the full process and support you can make the world of difference and I would like to share with you how we help our clients.
One of the most common questions we get asked is:
The decision is of course yours, however there are some risks to consider:
Let's say you find the home of your dreams, the right house, in the right area, etc...You proceed to view the property and subsequently look to make an offer. Any good Estate Agent would ask you about your buying position, and if you was to say you are yet to market your house then there is the concern that you may risk overpaying for the property given that the sellers won't deem you to be in a good position. Even if your offer is at the asking price, the seller may believe by selling to you, it could delay their house move by essentially making a 'weak link' in the property chain.
If you have an offer accepted on the property you are looking to buy, then you are going to be significantly under pressure from the start, and as a highly motivated seller you may risk having to accept a lower offer. Given the tax-breaks from selling your own home, you don't want to lose out on the potential profit from equity you have built up over the years.
Estate Agents like ourselves put properties out to 'hot buyers' before they show up on Rightmove, given the delays that can sometimes occur with getting them onto the national portals. It is NOT uncommon to sell a property, particularly the sought after ones before they hit Rightmove which may be why you're thinking there is not many properties coming up for sale.
So if you want to become a 'Hot Buyer', helping to achieve the highest amount of tax-free cash as you can as well as have access to more opportunities then you will need to consider listing your property on the market...or at least getting your property 'Market Ready'.
Getting your property 'Market Ready' means exactly how it sounds.
We conduct everything that we possibly can, including the professional photography, floorplans, videos, ensuring you have a compliant EPC in place etc.
There are no contract sign ups, and all we ask is that you cover the cost of the marketing fees which will be decided on the package of services you choose (usually around £200 at this stage, later to be deducted should we sell your property).
Once your property is 'Market Ready', we can see a list of 'Hot Buyers' on our system and begin to give them the Heads Up that a property may be coming to market in the near future. When YOU are ready to list your property for sale, we can have the property live on Rightmove within 24 hours and a FOR SALE board up outside your house.
We can then open up the floodgates with Hot Buyers to view your property at the earliest convenience, bringing you up to speed in your Property chain.
This is one way we help local homeowners navigate through this potentially stressful time. If you would like to benefit from our Market Ready service, as many others have in the past, then give us a call today on 01977 644 449.
