Finally Saying "I Need To Sell My House Fast"

Nov 20th 2012 at 11:30 AM

A number of internet sites abound on the Internet providing advice to those United Kingdom folks who are thinking: "I need to sell my house fast." Which is precisely what I was looking to do when I made the decision to sell my house. The First thing I did was too look into the money I would save by not using a UK estate agent. Spending between from 1% to 3.5% of the cost of a property plus VAT, where Londoners paying more, a UK estate agency service can potentially cost me some much money with their commission fees. By using online estate agents who tend to have a lower price, I could save an extra half percent or so on the commission percentage. After contemplating the saving vs the stress as well as the quantity of time I would end up spending on research, research, research, preparing and modifying my home as well as its surrounding grounds, putting up advertisements most importantly on the web at Property Portals as well as "For Sale" Boards. I would also need to utilize other marketing schemes like a sale board outside my house. I would also be speaking with possible buyers and distinguishing how serious they are, preparing appointments and showing my home, obtaining a solicitor who will manage the actual legal course of action of selling my property, and finally the negotiations, which are most likely the most stressful aspect of the whole process, I determined I would attempt a private sale. While I am surveying the work that needs to be accomplished I am contemplating whether I am making the right decision.

In the end, beneficial estate agents can help save a private home seller time and stress. Talking with the seller, the agent understands an asking price and a time-frame. By evaluating and understanding the market for a particular type of property, its price range, and location, estate agents can more easily target the most desirable long run buyers. Plan on pay extra costs for the actual advertising placements regardless of whether it's in newspapers or Property Portals on the Internet. If you are selling a highend UK home, your estate agent might recommend that you hire a house staging organization. Freeing the seller from arranging appointments, meeting with buyers, assessing how serious a buyer may be, and showing the house; for certain people, UK estate agents are well worth their commission costs.

For me, I determined that I had the time to devote to do the necessary research to sell my property privately. After contacting an accredited Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) so that I could get an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), which is mandatory for any lawful UK property sale, I learned a few tips for house staging. Deciding not to pay for a professional house stager, I worked with my amazing cleaning lady who helped with preparing the house including the closets, drawers, attic, basement, and the garage. In addition, I asked friends to help with the Internet marketing and who pitched in during the house viewing times. My solicitor took care of all the legal contracts as well as finalizing the transaction with the purchaser's solicitor. Fortunately, with a touch of luck all my efforts paid off and I sold my house. It was a lot of work, but I felt it was definitely worth the money saved and the experience was definitely educational.

Many websites abound on the Internet supplying advice to those UK folks that are thinking: "I want to sell my house fast.", is one such website you have to check out when you wish to sell property in a timely fashion.
