Selling Your Home Online? What You Need To Know

Selling your home can be something tempting to try alone. Maybe you don’t want to hire a real estate agent as you need to save money and keep costs down. However you do need to be careful and use a reputable agent or service even if they are online. 

Some internet agents simply list your property online — leaving you to do all the work, from taking photographs, to conducting the viewings and handling negotiations. If you’re in a hurry to sell your property or need to liquidate fast then obviously this doesn’t help much.

The truth is that there are several factors involved when it comes to selling your residential properties. And if selling them by yourself, you might unknowingly ignore important issues. Depending on your level of experience in the real estate industry, you might lack the right knowledge of how things actually work and the best way to approach them. 

Have you ever thought of selling your properties directly to an online buying service? You could end up saving a lot of time and avoid a many of the headaches involved with an online listing agent or traditional agency.

At We Buy Property, we’ll reveal the most important things to consider when deciding to sell your property online and why you should sell your home to a buying service like us. Let’s get started:

Location

Regardless of your current location, an online buying service can help you. You don’t have to rely on a local market purchaser or agent to be in your area, in order to make the sale.

Using a reputable and reliable online buying service that purchases property nationally can be a huge advantage, as they can buy your home directly from you no matter where your based.

With online listings platforms and agents, you still have to wait for someone to show interest in your property listing for that area before they contact you. With an online buying service you can get a valuation and quote to purchase your property within 24 hours.

You’re Already Busy

Selling a residential property is sometimes a full-time job. It isn’t as simple as you may think. Things to consider are the time spent in fielding calls from prospective buyers. Or the time spent to source the platforms where you’ll have to advertise the property. There are also dozens of other essential tasks before you will be able to finalise the sale with a prospective buyer.

You are already busy with your life and your job, so why not eliminate all these extra tasks and just use and online buying service.

At We Buy Property, we can help ease the process and take care of all the details. We aren’t too busy to handle the solicitor fees, valuations and legal checks to help get you a final offer. We Buy Property offers the best possible price for your home without the worry of viewings, chains and long timelines. No need to worry about your position or the condition of the property as we purchase it for cash.

Incredibly, we always work around the clock to ensure that a large percentage of our clients actually turn into qualified sellers and help them complete a successful transaction with us. If you are already finding yourself busy with activities revolving around your job and personal life, you definitely need an online buying service like We Buy Property to purchase your home.

Understanding Contracts

Contracts can be complex and cost you time and money – when dealing with an online agent make sure you know what you’re signing and remember that they want your business, so challenge anything you don’t like and never pay more than you need to. 

No sale, no fee

Some online estate agents will ask you to pay upfront, but some do offer a ‘no sale, no fee’ guarantee – which means you won’t have to pay if the sale falls through. But check the small print first.

Tie-in periods

Lots of estate agents, even the big high street brands, include a tie in period. But if you end up not getting on with them or become unhappy with their service you will want to terminate the contract.  Make sure your contract gives you the flexibility to terminate without incurring a penalty, and go elsewhere if you’re unhappy with your agent.

At We Buy Property, we know everything that comes with contracts and closing and can simplify the whole process, and remove the stress. We are professionals. We know what is meant to be disclosed and are completely transparent and ethical in our whole process with you.
