How can I sell my house quickly in a slow market?

The past six months since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic have brought a great deal of uncertainty to everyone’s lives. Unfortunately, due to increased unemployment, wage cuts, business failures and job uncertainty, the property market has taken a huge hit as people are more wary about making an investment as large as buying a home. Consequently, not only have house prices fallen but the housing market has slowed down as people are more wary of saving their money than previously. For homeowners who are looking to quickly sell their property at this time, the process is clearly not going to be as straightforward and fast as it was before. Therefore, we thought that we would write an article summarising our top tips on how to sell a house quickly in a slow market.

The first tip we can give is to consider how much you are pricing your property for. At FastCash4Houses, we take a weight off your shoulders by doing this for you. If you get in contact with us to tell us about the property, we will give you a no obligation cash offer within 24 hours. From there, you can rest assured that you will not be held up by delays such as applying for mortgages or loan offers and you do not need to advertise with estate agents, viewings or be involved in lengthy negotiations. To ensure that we give you a realistic offer that guarantees a sale, we look at the market value and then the price after the survey.

The second tip we can give you is to do everything within your power to maximise the potential for your property to stand out. External factors, such as the economy and even the time of year can impact how likely your property is to sell, so to minimise the impact on the chances of your property selling, you should identify how to make your property stand out. In the current circumstances, one thing we have seen is a rise in the home office, due to more people working from home. Therefore, it would be an idea to show viewers how a room in the house could be used as a home office, as this may make your property more ideal and practical.

Since the pandemic, there has been an increase in house sales within rural areas, as people are thinking more about how and where they work and live. Therefore, even if you do not live in a very rural setting but you do have a garden, then take the time to make your garden look more presentable by pulling out weeds or mowing the lawn. It may seem simple, but it could make the world of difference when potential buyers come to view your property. First impressions count, so painting the front door, planting flowers, and replacing old lights are also a worthwhile investment. Staging your house to draw the attention of prospective property buyers will help highlight points of interest and possibly also mask any flaws.

We know that the past few months have not been easy for anyone, particularly for those looking to sell their homes. However, we hope that this article has been useful to provide you with a starting point for how to increase sales in spite of a slow market.

At FastCash4Houses, we hope to make your property selling that little bit smoother and quicker.
