We’ll buy your property in Derby

Do you have a Victorian terrace in Chaddesden and want to sell up quickly so you can buy a park home to retire to?

About Derby

Derby is a large city in the East Midlands, lying on the bank of the River Derwent. It’s previously been rated one of the best places to live in the UK and is known for it’s low cost living and low house prices when compared to other UK cities.

You likely know most of the things we can tell you about the city itself, seeing as you probably own a property there! So, we’ll tell you a little bit more about the property market. According to Zoopla, In August 2021 the average house price in the city stood at £222,910, and it’s dropped a bit from the 12 month average which is £232,284. Detached are the most commonly sold property type of the last year, with 1,128 sales, compared to only 157 flat sales.

More In-Depth Look At The Derby Property Market

So, we’ve told you about the cost of Derby properties, and the most common sales. What you may also be interested to know is how long, on average, it might take to sell your property in the city. According to statistics by Home.co.uk in August 2021 the average time on the market for properties between listing and moving to the sold status was 141 days. By far and away the quickest selling property type in Derby is terraces at 80 days, ranging all the way to flats which bring the average up at 269 days.

These times also don’t include the solicitor, and the likely requirement for a mortgage approval if your planning on selling through the open market, so you can add a few months to those figures to get a more accurate average from sale to completion.

Luckily you have a few options when it comes to speeding that up, which we’ll touch on next!

Your Property Selling Options

If you’ve made the decision to sell your Derby property, you now have a couple of options on how you choose to do so. We’re going to review some of the main choices, and determine which might be suitable for you in your particular situation, and don’t worry, we’ll be honest!

Property Portals (Estate Agents)

This is by far the most common way people generally choose to sell their property within the UK. Typically you would go through a local or online estate agent, and they would then list your property online typically on sites like Rightmove. This method will typically achieve you the closest figure to market value, but it takes time, as we stated above in Derby on average it will take around 141 days until you agree a sale.

This method is great if your less concerned about selling within a certain time, if you can wait, you’ll achieve a higher value than most other methods, even including the estate agent fees.

Auction Houses

Another option you have is to sell your house via auction. You can pick any auction house for this, and an auctioneer will be able to talk to you and determine whether or not your house might be suitable. Auctions tend to attract certain bidders, mostly looking for a good deal as a landlord, so high yields, or properties suitable to flip. If your property fits into those two categories, then chances are auctions could be a good option for you.

Putting your property into auction isn’t quite as straight forward as it may seem, and it can take 6-10 weeks to prepare it for the big day, at which point it may or may not sell. Be wary that people at auctions aren’t usually your typical residential buyers, they will be looking for a good deal and you likely won’t achieve what you would on the open market – but it can be a great option, especially if you’re struggling to sell.

Quick Cash Buyers

That’s us! It’s a new and increasingly popular service, we’ll buy your home in as little as 7 days for cash. The service offers a speedy sale with a date that you can pretty much choose, and we’ll take all the stress and hassle out the sale, with absolutely no fees – we even cover them for you, including the solicitors!

That being said, we do offer below market value, so as a trade off for a guaranteed quick sale, you won’t achieve what you would through the open market. You can get an offer completely free of charge with no obligation, all it takes is a few minutes of your time.
