A fast, risk-free way to sell your house
There are many different reasons why someone might decide to sell their property and sometimes selling through a traditional estate agent, for whatever reason, may not be possible. This can be because of the inflexible nature of the process or simply because the sale is time sensitive and selling through an estate agent’s can take too long.
If you are wanting to sell your house fast and can’t (or don’t want to) use an estate agent, for some reason, then we, at Goodlife Realestate Cooperative, can help.

What is a Problem Property?
A property can be difficult to sell for many reasons. It may need refurbishment or structural work doing. It may be un-mortgageable. It may be an unusual property for the location. Any or all of these things can make selling a property through the traditional channels difficult. But the right company should be able to sell a property regardless of any unusual elements.
The single most important factor in selling a ‘difficult-to-sell’ house is finding the right price. Every property has a market value, the price that someone is willing to pay for it. With an unusual property a successful sale will be predicated on the most accurate, valuation possible.
This is one area where specialist companies can excel. When it comes to the valuation of ‘problem property’, it is important that no guesswork is involved and that the markets are closely analysed to give exactly the right, baseline price. But the process doesn’t end there. A house selling specialist will then work upwards from that baseline, generating enough interest to squeeze out as much money from the sale as possible.
But a problem property is not defined as a property that is difficult to sell or one that will take a long time to sell. A problem property is a property that, for whatever reason, represents a significant problem for the property owner.
So, if a house that is taking a long time to sell is not causing the owner distress, then any marketability issue with that property would not be enough for us to classify it as a problem property.
Types of distress could include:
- A Financial Drain
If a property has no one living it in it then the asset can very quickly turn into a burden. It might be an empty inherited property, a vacant buy-to-let, an unused second or holiday home. Running costs such as the mortgage, insurance, utilities and council tax can all add up quickly and become a significant drain on the owner’s resources.
- Change in Personal Circumstances
If an owner needs sell a property as a result of divorce, separation, bereavement, illness or because of losing a job then you will want to get this over and done with as soon as possible, not just because of the improvements the sale will immediately make but also because, under these circumstances, the anxiety around a sale should be kept to a minimum.
- Debt Problems
Unserved, unattended and ignored debt can spiral out of control, easily. There can be charges, fines, administration fees, court costs and a small debt can become much larger, very quickly. Sometimes, holding on for a better price on your house won’t be worth it, as spiraling debt can cost you more than you make from waiting around.
- Threat of Repossession
If an owner cannot find the money to keep up with repayments on the mortgage then, in the worst case scenario, the lender will start the repossession process and this see the homeowner significantly out of pocket. If an arrangement with the lender cannot be reached then one option is to sell the house, releasing the funds to service your debt.
- Frustration and Anxiety
Sometimes a homeowner will want to sell their property quickly to pursue a new job, adventure, dream house or the chance to move overseas and the anxiety of perhaps missing out on such opportunities due to a lengthy (and often stressful) sale is not worth the money that would be saved by opting for using an estate-agent and going down the more traditional sales route.
