Selling House With Overgrown Garden
Having an overgrown garden could complicate the sale of your property because of buyers’ concerns about weeds, pests and other problems.
Your top questions when selling property with an overgrown garden
✅ What does it mean to have an overgrown garden at my home?
If you have a garden at your house and it is overgrown, this means the lawn, trees, shrubs, plants and more are not trimmed or maintained and start to grow into each other. This can create an unappealing look for your garden, and there are many potential buyers who might lose interest in making an offer on the property just because of the overgrown garden.
✅ Why does an overgrown garden sometimes make it harder to sell a property?
Appearances matter when selling a home, and some people will simply not have any interest in making an offer on a property that has an overgrown garden. Other potential buyers might be worried that the cost and time involved with trimming the garden as the next homeowner would be too much, and there are also concerns about overgrown gardens leading to pest problems.
✅ Should I trim my overgrown garden before selling my house?
One way to remove buyers’ concerns about an overgrown garden is to trim the growth and make it look presentable and well-maintained. Whilst this can help to make more your home more appealing to buyers, it could also require a significant amount of effort, money and time and it should only be pursued if it’s work that you are willing to wait to be completed.
✅ Can I sell a house with an overgrown garden as is?
Yes, and it can help you to get a much faster sale. If you’re unable for any reason to trim your overgrown garden, you could still get a rapid and competitive offer if you sell the property to a quick buyer like LDN Properties. These companies are experts are buying homes others would consider problem properties, and that includes houses with overgrown gardens.
✅ What is a good way to check if a quick property buyer is legitimate?
You can visit the website of The Property Ombudsman (TPO), an organisation that issues rules to guard homeowners from falling victim to fraud in the quick buying industry. TPO’s website maintains a database of all official members, and they all commit to following those rules. Do not sell your home to a non-TPO company because it could potentially be a scam.
✅ What's the best way to avoid fees when selling a home with an overgrown garden?
Your best options to not pay commission when selling your property are either selling without any assistance or selling to an honest no-fee quick buyer like LDN Properties. If you decide to use an auctioneer or an estate agent to sell your home with an overgrown garden, this will add to your costs because you’ll have to pay them fees that will be taken out of the sale proceeds.
✅ What's the fastest choice to sell a property that has an overgrown garden?
Typically, the quickest way to sell a home with an overgrown garden is by contacting a quick buyer, because they can finalise the entire process within just a few short weeks. By contrast, the other three common methods for selling a property – doing so with an estate agent, an auctioneer or on your own – can all take many months, and possibly even longer.
