The best way to sell your home will depend on your circumstances.
If you need to sell fast – to repair a broken chain, to free up cash or as a result of divorce or inheritance, then the best route may be to use a home buying service. You can sell your home in as little as two weeks but you will only get around 80-85% of the market value.
If you want the best price – and have the luxury of time to wait for offers, then the best route is to use an estate agency. You will usually get close to 100% of market value, but it can take six months or more to sell your home.
If you want the best of both worlds – with a faster sale at a better price, then selling at auction could be your answer. You can more than halve the time it takes to sell, and still return around 90% of the market value.
