Houses sold in 12 days get better prices !

Posted: 11/2/2017


A new survey has revealed that home sellers get the best price for their property if sold within just 12 days of coming to the market. The survey is by Home Owners Alliance based on 5000 estate agents. In fact many properties agreed within this period get more than the asking price. Those agreed within 4 weeks are very close behind in terms of obtaining the optimum price. This comes as no suprise to us at Key One as we are now seeing properties being agreed more quickly. Why? Simple, as we recently reported, gone are the days of printed (and expensive) advertising in favour of instant on-line adverts available on house-hunters computers, tablets and phones. When a property now hits the market it gets to all serious prospective buyers quickly and at the same time. That means potentially more buyers interested in the house at the same time, increasing the chances of a sale shortky after the property come on to the market, and at a better price. If you are thinking of selling you will be pleased to know that we don't rip off our clients with unjustified high fees - £99 to list, £500 when sold. Call us 24/7 on 02890456162 or email us NB £500 fee applies to first £200,000 then 0.5% thereafter. Subject to standard t&C.
