Sometimes life can throw things at you that are unexpected. From breaks in chains or relationships, The Property Buying Company understands that needing to sell your property quickly can be nerve-wracking.
Luton is a large town based in Bedfordshire in the South East of England, although technically in the East of England. It’s one of the most populated and largest towns in the UK, close to some cities, although it doesn’t quite have that status… yet.
The reason you likely landed on this page though is because you’re looking at selling your house in Luton, and fast, so you’ll probably know more about the area than we do! What we can tell you about is the property market, such as in Luton the average house price in 2020 according to Rightmove was at £288,642 – with the majority of properties being semi-detached.
Lets dig a little deeper and take a further look at the property market in the town. If you’re looking to sell, what you might be interested in is how long you can expect it to take from when you put your property on the market to when it is marked as sold. Luckily, Home.co.uk have the up to date figures, and in August 2021 as an average you can see it takes around 190 days on the market for that sold status.
The quickest type of property to sell according to the statistics are terrace homes at 134 days ranging all the way to flats which take on average 229 days. The stats are fairly typical when compared to the UK average.
After you’ve done that, you also need to consider the time for the solicitors and potential requirements of a mortgage for your buyer to add on top, all of which can add a few months to the process.
If time is of the essence, then you might want to opt for an alternative, like for example, a cash house buying company such as ourselves?
That leads us quite nicely into what your options are when you decide to sell your Luton property. We’ve taken a look at a few options, and whether or not it might work for you in your circumstance. Here’s a run down of your main options below:
The most common option for any property sale, including in Luton, is to use an estate agent who will then list your website on property portals like Rightmove & Zoopla. This leaves your property sale up to the general public so there’s no certain date of sale, however you will likely achieve much closer to market value than other sale methods.
This is great if you have the time and money to pay for the estate agent fees, but it’s not suitable if you have to sell by a certain time frame as there’s no certainty.
The second option people usually turn to is to take their Luton property to a local or national auction. Auctions can be fantastic, for certain types of properties. Auction customers tend to be on the look out for certain kind of deals, mostly those that will stack up as great value Buy To Let properties with high yields, or those that they can look to renovate, you don’t typically get residential buyers – or it’s a lot less common.
People often have a misconception that mortgages are quick, but that isn’t necessarily true either. It will take around 6-10 weeks to get your property to the big day and auction ready, and there’s no guarantee you will sell at this point.
