Shall I sell my house now or should I wait?


Shall I shan’t I?

Should I shouldn’t I?

Sell now or later?

Without a crystal ball it is very difficult to be 100% confident with the answer to your dilemma, should you sell your house now or later.

I think every case is different, I met a couple last week who are thinking of selling a property they currently let, they have a great tenant who is looking after the place really well, in fact is improving the property by decorating it throughout and paying a good rent on time. In this case I suggested they hang onto it for the time being. There property will sell faster and for a higher price when first time buyers return to the market.

In other cases where supply & demand is in the vendors favour now is absolutely the right time to sell, this can be judged by looking at Rightmove. How many houses would yours be in competition with?

Estate Agents will always tell you no is the right time to sell because they want their commission now so don’t always follow their advice.

If you want the earth for your property or you bought it in 2006 or early 2007 and need to get more than you paid for it then now is probably not going to be the best time and you may be in for a long wait.

Every case is different, all I would say though is what have you got to loose?

Get an Estate Agents who works on a ‘no sale – no fee’ basis, get an EPC (only £50 and last 10 years) and stick it on the market, even if you get an offer you are not obliged to move.

This is not a huge decision or commitment.

Potton Timber Homes For Sale

Potton timber self build properties are popular throughout Cambridgeshire & Bedfordshire probably due in the most part to the location of Potton as a business.

Potton timber homes have sprung up all over Cambridgeshire. I have visited two this week, one in Bury near Ramsey and one in Molesworth near the American airbase.

The older style mock Tudor Potton’s now look a bit dated with dark wood beams and pillars. Some of the designs also have small kitchens and not the huge family,dining, kitchen/breakfast room the new designs have.

Many of the timber homes I have seen have now been extended, one example of this is an old Potton with integral double garage in Alconbury Weston. The double garage has been converted into a playroom and Planning Permission sought for a new, detached double garage. In addition to this they have added a lovely single storey extension from the original but small kitchen at the back of the house making a huge difference to the feel and size, let alone the light.

If you are looking to buy or sell a Potton Timber second hand home then please call Gatehouse Estates on 01480 434290.

How can I sell my house?

With Gatehouse Estate selling your property, whether it be a house or flat, is easy.

Buy to Let is popular with investors because the returns can be much higher than having cash sat in the bank so don’t assume just because we call them investors they won’t pay the full market value for your house or flat. Often buy to let buyers are great to sell to because they are chain free, less mortgage dependent than first time buyers and not as naive to the house buying and selling process and not emotionally attached to the property.

As one of the areas leading Property Management Companies we have lots of contact with Buy to Let investors, some of which are already existing landlords of our, but all looking to buy more houses or flats to rent out.

If you are thinking of selling a small house or flat in the general Cambridgeshire area then we will almost certainly have buy to let investors that will be interested. Call us to discuss further on 01480 434290.
