Property not selling – what are my choices?
Some homeowners list their properties with estate agents hoping that they’ll get many viewing requests and make a quick sale. But the reality is that some houses and flats sit on the market for a long time, so it’s important to know your options if this is happening to you.
Recurring questions about homes that aren’t selling
As experts in the property market, there are certain questions that keep recurring from homeowners whose properties aren’t selling, including:
✅ Are there alternatives to selling my property through an estate agent?
Yes. You can sell your house or flat at auction, where you’ll agree to a minimum opening reserve price and then hope that people will bid at higher levels before the final sale. Another alternative is selling to a trustworthy property buying company that will give you a swift cash payment for your home without charging any fees.
✅ Will I have to spend money to make my house sell?
No. Many of your options for making it more likely that your home will sell won’t cost you any money, although they will require some investment of time. These choices include tidying your garden and rooms, or taking better photographs of your property for the listing with your estate agent.
✅ Should I just lower my price and try to get a sale that way?
Although lowering the price of your house or flat can potentially encourage more interest from prospective buyers, this option will depend on your personal situation. If your financial needs are such that you truly cannot accept a lower price, consider some of the other steps that you have for making your home more appealing to buyers.
