Selling a House Without a Garden
If your house or flat doesn’t have a garden then you may find it harder to sell compared to a property with such a feature, but obtaining a quick and competitive offer is still achievable.
Your top questions when selling house without a garden
✅ Does the lack of a garden create any issues with trying to sell my house?
An estimated 87 percent of houses, flats and other types of properties across the UK have some type of garden or other green space, and this can often make these homes appear more valuable to prospective buyers for a number of reasons. But there are also various explanations for why specific buyers might prefer to find a property that doesn’t have a garden.
✅ Why do some buyers prioritise having a garden when looking for properties?
There are a number of justifications for why a buyer could make having a garden a top goal when looking for their next property. For example, they might be an avid gardener and look forward to focusing on that hobby at their new home. Or they could simply like the idea of having additional private space, particularly if the garden is larger than usual.
✅ Are there reasons why a buyer would not want a garden at their next home?
Yes, certain buyers could simply see having a garden as too much work, because they’ll have to continuously tend to it in order to avoid it becoming overgrown. Other buyers might worry about the potential for invasive weeds like Japanese knotweed or Himalayan balsam to appear in the garden in the future, because they can cause property structural problems and other issues.
✅ How can I make my house without a garden more attractive to buyers?
Because you won’t have any garden or green space that you can mow and weed to make look attractive to visiting potential buyers, you’ll need to focus on making other features of the home more attractive. This includes making sure that the rooms inside are clean and free of clutter, and outside the property fixing any visible problems such as replacing missing roof tiles.
✅ What is the speediest way to sell a property that doesn't have a garden?
The fastest way to sell a house without a garden or almost any type of property is doing with a quick buyer, such as LDN Properties, because they can complete all the steps for buying your home in just a handful of weeks. The other top three methods of selling at an auction, selling with an estate agent or selling without any assistance can all take many months at least.
✅ How can I know to trust a quick buyer with the sale of my home without a garden?
Ask quick buyers if they can prove they are registered with The Property Ombudsman, which is an independent organisation that writes rules to guard homeowners against fraud in the quick buying industry. All TPO members must follow these regulations, which should give you extra peace of mind when selling. Don’t sell to a non-TPO member because it could be a scam.
✅ What are the fees I'll pay when selling a house without a garden?
If you choose to sell your property using the services of an auctioneer or an estate agent then you will need to pay them commission if they succeed in finding a buyer for your property, and this fee will be taken immediately out of the sale proceeds. But if you choose to sell without any third party help or you sell to a no-commission quick buyer then you won’t pay any fees.
