How old is my property?
If you’re trying to find out how old your house or flat is before trying to sell it, there are some relatively easy steps you can take to discover the age of your property.
Do you have questions about the age of your property? We have answers
When homeowners contact us about selling their properties they sometimes have questions about the age of their house or flat. These are three of our most common queries and answers:
✅ Why is it important to know the age of my home that I want to sell?
Because it’s one of the first questions that buyers will ask. Not only is it a point of interest for many buyers, but knowing the age of a house is also mandatory for a buyer when seeking insurance for your property that they want to buy. And the older a home, the more likely it is a listed building with restrictions on alterations or extensions.
✅ Is it better to sell a house that is considered old or considered new?
The answer to this question depends entirely on the buyer. Some people want to buy houses that are brand new and in which they’ll be the first people to live, because they typically include the most modern fixtures and fittings. Other people might place a priority on buying a home built many years ago because they like older properties.
✅ Will the age of my home always be a factor in selling it?
If you sell through an estate agent or auctioneer then the buyer will typically be an individual who might have their own preferences for whether they want an old or new home. Alternatively, if you sell to a fast property buying company they will be open to buying houses of any age, with the added bonus of charging you zero fees for selling.
