The large market town of Darlington is based in County Durham, it’s located just outside of Middlesbrough. It’s likely however that you’ve landed on this page because your looking to sell your home in the Middlesbrough area, and quickly at that, so chances are you’ll know more about the area than we do!
What we do know about is the property market, in which Darlington has a relatively low average house price when compared to the rest of the country, sitting at £171,273 as of August 2021 according to Zoopla. In the area the most commonly sold properties are semi-detached with an average price paid of £161,039, whereas the least sales come from flats with an average of £102,415.
The next thing you might care about when looking into the property market in the area is how long you can expect your sale to take. Home.co.uk have a great report which details the amount of time that property in any area is on the market until it’s marked as sold, and in August 2021 it states the average for the Darlington area is 189 days.
The figures vary wildly depending on the property that you have for sale, the quickest by far is semi detached properties at 114 days, but the slowest are flats at 298 days. These figures also don’t include the time taken for solicitors and the potentially required mortgage for the buyer of your property.
We won’t go too much into it now, but you can avoid all this with a 7 day sale using our sell house fast service, saving yourself months!
If you’re looking to sell your property in the Darlington area then you have a few main options you can explore. Each option has it’s own pros and cons and will be suited to different situations, so we’ll give you a quick overview to help you decide which might best meet your requirements:
This is by far the most common way that people choose to sell their property, to use an traditional or online estate agent to list their property on the open market using portals like Rightmove, Zoopla or OnTheMarket, to name a few.
They will put your Darlington property on the market and arrange or host viewings for you via the general public. You’ll likely achieve closest to market value going down this route, but there’s no set date as to when you will manage to sell by, and as you can see by our previous insight into the Darlington property market, it can take a fair amount of time!
If you have the time and want to achieve the highest possible value for your property, this is the way to go. If however you have a time restraint and are looking for a quicker sale, you might want to explore alternative options.
Another option you have that people often consider is to go to auction with their property.
If you’re considering this, the best thing to do is just to have an initial conversation with an auctioneer to figure out if they think your property will attract potential bidders – the reason for this is auctions often attract a certain audience, mostly investors and landlords, who are all looking for particularly properties, such as those that might attract high yields.
You probably won’t achieve as close to market value as the open market, as auction buyers are often more savvy and looking for a great deal.
It can be a great alternative if your home isn’t selling on the open market though, but it does take usually between 6 to 10 weeks to prepare your property, and there’s no guarantee on the day that it will sell.
An increasingly popular alternative is to use companies such as ourselves. We’re of course a little biased to this, but we’ll tell you straight off the bat, it’s not for everyone. Our solution means we can buy your house in as little as 7 days, but we won’t offer you full market value.
We offer a fair value, and take care of everything for you making the sale of your Darlington property not only quick, but hassle and stress free.
