Your top questions when selling a house on a hill

✅ Which types of properties are considered to be homes on a hill?

There isn’t a single international legally binding definition for what constitutes a hill compared to a mountain, but in the UK the general approach is to classify anything with an elevation above 600 meters (which is 1,969 feet) as a mountain. Therefore if your home is on land with an elevation below that threshold, it’s considered to be a flat or house on a hill.

✅ Why might a buyer be interested in owning a property on a hill?

There are a number of reasons why someone could be more interested in making an offer to purchase a property located on a hill compared to another type of house or flat. Some of these factors include the great views and scenery that these properties tend to have, as well as these homes often having much more green space, like a garden, than other types of properties.

✅ Why is it sometimes more difficult to sell a house or flat on a hill?

Whilst there are a number of explanations for why some prospective buyers could be interested in making an offer on your house or flat on a hill, you could find that there are several possible downsides about this type of property that can hinder a sale. These include environmental erosion and landslides, and the fact these homes may not have good drainage systems.

✅ How can I prepare my property on a hill for buyers when I'm ready to sell?

When you’re attempting to sell your home on a hill, there some zero-cost or low-cost and minimal effort actions to take that may help with increasing interest from potential buyers. These steps include tidying up the inside of the flat or house and removing clutter from every room, and outside it can mean mowing any lawn you have and replacing missing roof tiles.

✅ What are the options to find a buyer for my flat or house on a hill?

There are typically four main options for selling any type of property, including homes situated on a hill. You can choose from trying your luck with a property auction, selling the house or flat using the services of an estate agent, attempting to sell the home without any assistance from a third party, or selling to a no-fee quick buyer such as LDN Properties.

✅ How swiftly will I be able to get an offer from a buyer for my home on a hill?

The timeline for selling your house or flat on a hill will vary depending on which approach you use for selling. If you attempt to sell the property without any help or through an auctioneer or estate agent then the process could take at least many months. If you sell to LDN Properties or another quick home buyer than the timeline should only be a few short weeks.

✅ What are the fees I'll have to pay when selling my property on a hill?

You’ll need to pay commission on the sale of your home if you sell it using the services of an estate agent or auctioneer, and this fee will be deducted from the final sale proceeds, which will add to your costs. But if you opt for selling your house or flat to a zero-commission quick buyer like LDN Properties, or selling without any third party help, then you will not pay any fees.
