When an estate agent values your home, theyre 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 wont tell you is the actual figure youre likely to get when all these factors, plus the estimated Â£10,000 cost of selling are factored into the equation. However, a home buying company arent worried about who needs to apply for a mortgage, what the chain is or the buoyancy of the market and they dont charge any sales fees, so when they offer you a free valuation, its 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 youll end up paying in order to sell if you want to know the true figure youre likely to get.
Choose a Home Buying Company
If youre fed up with hidden costs, ridiculous legislation and long, laborious months of waiting, then why not join thousands of other homeowners 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 youll end up getting.
When you need a quick sale a home buying company can be ideal. For example, if youre moving to a new job in a new area, its a lot more cost effective to sell your home quickly than pay the mortgage for months on a home youre not living in. Many homeowners 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 youre 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.
