Handing over keys after a relocation house sale

It may have come out of the blue or is something you have always dreamed of, but relocating is a major life event, one full of adventure and new opportunities. Whether you’re upping sticks and moving abroad, retiring to a quieter area of the UK, or perhaps you’re moving to a new job which requires you a quick relocation house sale, Vivo Property Buyers are here to help you.

While any new move is bound to be exciting, it can often be quite a stressful period of your life. Often one of the biggest challenges you face when relocating is what to do with your property? There are a few options that you may want to consider:

Renting out your property

If you need to move quickly and don’t want the uncertainty of an open-market sale, you could rent out your home as a temporary measure. Interestingly, there has been a rise in the number of accidental landlords in recent years, with homeowners being forced to let their properties due to the sluggish housing market. If you decide that this is the option for you, ensure you meet the legal requirements with your mortgage and insurance. Once that is settled, there are several property apps to help you speedily find tenants, however, handling the property and any tenants’ concerns may be difficult when you are relocating to a different county let alone the country!

An alternative is to use a property management company to manage the day-to-day operations. While this will certainly take care of your new additional responsibilities, it can be costly and you may lose the sense of ownership as well as a reduction in your profits from any rental property.

Despite this, the most preferred option may be to sell your home outright – releasing valuable funds to start your new life.  However, this can be an extremely tricky situation when relocating. This is because the open-market is notoriously unreliable, and deals can often fall through and break down at many stages in the property chain.  This is not what you need when you face the uncertain (albeit exciting) prospect of relocation.

Selling your home on the open market

Rather than the hassle associated with being a landlord, most homeowners relocating permanently prefer to sell their homes outright. Hiring an estate agent to conduct the sale can take some work of your hands, however, for any relocation house sale, it is likely that you need a quick turnaround and the traditional open market route can often be slow. Thus if you have a set date which you need to move by, for example, you may be starting a new job at the beginning of the next month, selling your home can be very tough and extremely stressful when time is not on your side. The slowness of selling on the open market can also be quite expensive as you wait for a buyer and continue to pay utility bills (don’t forget council tax) for a property you no longer require to live in. If you have already moved to a new place, this means your bills can double, plus you may have to travel back-and-forth from your new area to your former property to negotiate deals and house viewings. Overall, it can be quite exhaustive and expensive.

Using a fast property buyer for a quick sale

If you are looking to relocate or are already in the process and want to sell your home fast, Vivo Property Buyers can help make relocating to a new place smooth, quick and stress-free. Here are a few reasons why a quick house sale may be right for you if you’re in the situation:
