If you are looking for a quick sale of your house, regardless of the circumstances surrounding the sale, there are things which you can do to make your house more appealing to potential buyers.
Firstly, set a selling price which is realistic. It is tempting to set an asking price which is at the higher end of the estate agents valuation, which is fine if you are happy to wait for the desired offer to come in. However, if you are looking for a quick sale, it is advantageous to set a lower asking price which will attract more buyers who will think that they are getting a good deal and a lot of property for the money they will spend.
You can also upgrade the advertisement of your property on websites such as RightMove and Zoopla and make it a premium listing. This makes it stand out from the other listings and be featured on more pages in more searches, therefore reaching a larger audience.
If you have tried these methods and have still had little or no interest in your property, then there is the option to sell your home to a cash buyer. Cash home buyers will generally offer you up to 95% of the value of your home and can complete the sale in as little time as one week. Whilst you may not be initially happy to accept 95% of your valuation, selling you house fast through a cash buyer will save on estate agent fees, meaning that you will not actually be any worse off than if you sold using an estate agent at the full valuation figure.
You many need to sell your house quick if you are in repossession proceedings; in this case, using a cash buyer may be your best alternative.
