Your top questions when selling a property to a builder

✅ What are the benefits of selling your house or flat to a builder?

If a property developer is interested in purchasing your home, there are a few benefits that you might experience. Builders will not be part of a property chain, so there’s no danger of the sale falling through if someone else fails to sell their flat or house. You won’t need to put up with many people coming to your home on viewings, and the sale schedule could be flexible.

✅ Are there any disadvantages of selling your home to a builder?

Yes, you might find that property developers make offers that are below market value because they are factoring in the costs they will have to pay for whatever work they intend to do on the home once they own it. And certain companies that are very keen to buy your home might be somewhat aggressive in trying to pressure you to sell, which can be incredibly stressful.

✅ What are my alternative options for selling my house or flat?

If you have decided you don’t want to sell your home to a builder, there are four other ways to find a buyer. You can try your luck with a property auction, you can enlist the services of an estate agent, you can try selling on your own, or you can try selling to a fast buyer like LDN Properties that will be able to make a fast and fair offer to buy your home.

✅ What is the quickest way to sell my property if I'm not using a builder?

A quick home buyer is typically the speediest way to sell your flat or house, because they have the ability to immediately purchase properties without having to first secure a mortgage. This means they are usually able to complete every step of the process within just a handful of weeks, and that includes owners receiving their proceeds and exchanging contracts.

✅ If I don't sell my home to a builder, will every other method of selling charge fees?

No. If you decide against selling your property to a builder, you could contact a quick buyer like LDN Properties, who will never charge you any fees to buy your home. But other ways of selling do charge commission, often based as a percentage of the sale price.

✅ Will fast buyers consider buying properties that have problems like dry rot?

Yes. Quick home buyers are known for being able to consider making competitive and swift offers for purchasing almost any type of freehold or leasehold house or flat. They will not lose interest in buying your home because of any problems, such as dry rot, other structural flaws, low Energy Performance Certificate ratings, misplaced title deeds, and other situations.

✅ What factors will fast buyers use when making a valuation of my property?

There are a number of elements that will inform how a quick home buyer will value your property and decide the price they want to offer for it. Some of the most common factors include assessing the pros and cons of owning a home in your district, asking property valuation experts for their advice, reviewing any local planning authority documents about your home, and more.
