We recognise that there are a number of reasons why you may need a quick house sale scotland. Perhaps you need to release equity to clear debts, stop home repossession, or settle a divorce or separation. Not all quick sales are due to financial difficulties though — you might also favour a quick sale over traditional methods of selling due to relocation or emigration. Perhaps you need to sell a property you’ve inherited or maybe you have found the house of you dreams and need to complete a sale quickly before you can buy it.
No matter what your situation might be, if you need your property to be sold quickly, using a real estate agent might not be the best option for you. Advertising your property on the slow-moving property market with a real estate agency can mean that it might take months before your property is sold. In addition to the long waiting time, you will also have to deal with issues such as the inconvenience of having to conduct viewings, the risk of the sale falling through, and having to bear associated costs (valuation fee, survey fee, legal costs, etc).
Besides using the services of a real estate agency, you can also sell your property through an auction house. However, auction houses are likely to charge a high level of commission (commission starts at 2.5%) on top of other charges for advertising your property in brochures and catalogues. While your property may be sold in a shorter time than it would normally take a real estate agency to do so, there is a strict timescale to follow – you have to hand over the keys to your property 28 days after the auction date. This could be a problem if you need a longer time to sort out your move.
Due to the long waiting time, risk of buyers pulling out and inflexibility sale complete dates, more and more sellers are favouring quick sales over the traditional methods of using real estate agencies and auction houses. If you are looking to achieve a quick sale while getting a fair value for your property in property Auctions Scotland, We Buy Any House Direct can help you.
