When an estate agent values your home, they’re giving you an estimate of what you could get, under the right circumstances, in the right economic climate and if the right buyer comes along. What they won’t tell you is the actual figure you’re likely to get when all these factors, plus the estimated £10,000 cost of selling are factored into the equation. However, a home buying company aren’t worried about who needs to apply for a mortgage, what the chain is or the buoyancy of the market and they don’t charge any sales fees, so when they offer you a free valuation, it’s a much more realistic estimate of what your property is really worth.
Estate agent sales can be notoriously tricky. Not only do you have to turn your house into a show home, negotiate acres of legislation and wait for ages for a sale to go through. You also need to be savvy enough to work out what you’ll end up paying in order to sell if you want to know the true figure you’re likely to get.
Choose a Home Buying Company
If you’re fed up with hidden costs, ridiculous legislation and long, laborious months of waiting, then why not join thousands of other home owners across the UK and ditch the estate agents in favour of a home buying company. Home buying companies will give you an honest valuation on your home and if a sale is agreed, the money they offer is actually what you’ll end up getting.
When you need a quick sale a home buying company can be ideal. For example, if you’re moving to a new job in a new area, it’s a lot more cost effective to sell your home quickly than pay the mortgage for months on a home you’re not living in. Many home owners are struggling to make ends meet and when repossession looms the obvious answer is to put your property up for sale on the open market, buy once again this process can take several months which means many more mortgage payments that need to be found. Or if you’re divorcing then the painful process can be even more drawn out by a lengthy house sale. These are all great reasons for choosing a home buying company, but the best reason of all is that you can be completely in control of the process.
