The property market is fast-moving and for many people, the traditional estate agent model simply won’t cut it. Going down that route means you have a 1/3 chance of your agreed offer falling through.

If you don’t have the time or mental capacity to go back to square one multiple times, there are other options for selling your house fast.

Sell House Picture

1. Engage in a part-exchange deal

If you’re hoping to sell your home in order to move into a new build property, many developers will offer a part-exchange service. As part of this service, they will give you a guaranteed sum for your house, which they will subtract from the value of your new home.

But watch out – sometimes, the development company will tweak both the price of the house you’re buying as well as the one you’re selling.

2. Sell your house at auction

Typically, this will come at additional costs such as a 2.5% auction entry, marketing fee of around £500 and a buyer administration fee of roughly £750.

You set a reserve price and if it’s met or exceeded, the buyer will pay an immediate 10% deposit and transfer the rest within 28 days. It’s almost certain to go through… almost.

Whether or not you sell your house, you’ll have to pay the costs; so don’t set your reserve price too high.

3. Home buyer (that’s us)

First, we’ll make an indicative online offer based on the information you provide us. Then we’ll undertake research on the property and give you a firmer offer, which will be subject to survey and valuation. After that, we have two local agents carry out independent property valuations. Then comes the formal offer and legal proceedings begin (all at no extra cost to you). Once we’ve had the RICS survey, title checks and local searches done, we can exchange and complete to your timescales.

4. Assisted sale (us again!)

When time isn’t quite so important and you still want a hassle-free way of selling your home, we’ll perform an assisted sale on your property. You’ll be able to maximise the price you get for the property without any fees. You still receive a fast cash payment and will sell the property within a few months.

I can't thank National Property Trade enough. I had my property on the market for 7 months with no interest, so checked an online property buyer expecting to take a hit. I chose their Assisted Sale product and I think I have probably ended up more than I would've done leaving it on the market, reducing it every few weeks. Gives me great relief that I don't have the stress of trying to sell anymore. If you are fed up of your estate agent, give National Property Trade a try.

Simon thank you for all your help and answers as requested, we found you on the internet we went with you because you acted in a very professional manner, we were badly let down by two other companies and yes you more than met our expectations after our previous experience of other companies like yours and most certainly we would recommend you
