About York

York is an amazing city in the north east of England, an historic walled city, but you know that, because you already own property there. If you’re looking to move out of the area, or just move to another part of York, you might want to know more about the property market in the city.

York has an average house price of around £293,891, or at least that was the figure in 2020 on Rightmove. The growth of the prices in recent years has been good too, with 2020 up 8% on the previous year and 14% up on the 2018 peak. That means, if you have had your York house for a few years, chances are our offer will be over what you paid for it & we can get everything wrapped up in as little as 7 days!

York Property Market

Let’s start digging a little bit further into the property market in the city. If you are looking to sell your property in York, one of the main things you might want to know is how long can you expect it to take? Well if you go on the open market, according to Home.co.uk the average time for all properties to sell in Jul 2021 was 134 days, and then you have to add the time for the solicitors and potentially mortgage approval on top of that.

The house sales vary quite wildly in York, it’ll take you longest to sell a flat at 175 days on the market being the average, compared to a semi-detached which sits at just 82 days.

Your Sale Options

When you choose to sell your property in York, you have a couple of main options of ways that you can look to do so. Here is a breakdown and overview of your main options, so you can figure out what might work best for you:

The Open Market:

This is by far the most common way of selling and you usually do it through a traditional or online estate agency. They will then list you on popular property portals like Rightmove, Zoopla, OnTheMarket and more, and this will generally mean you sell to other members of the public. The problem with this is that there is no guarantee as when you will get an offer, or sale agreed, on your property and it usually can take months and then generally speaking most people will need a mortgage which makes the whole process very long. That being said, this method is more likely than the others to help you achieve closest to market value for your property.


An alternative option is to go to put your property into an auction, allowing people to bid on your property. You may be uncertain of what price you’ll achieve doing this, but you can set a reserve to ensure you don’t get lower than you’d hoped, but that being said in order to sell at auction you usually need to price the property well and there are certain kinds of properties that do better at auctions such as those with issues or that will achieve a high yield. The issue with auctions is you don’t guarantee that your house will sell, and it can take weeks to get to the point of actually getting the property to the auctioneer, so if it doesn’t sell, it’s a lot of time wasted.

Sell House Fast Service:

A further, newer alternative, is to sell to a cash house buying company such as ourselves. We’ll buy your York property in as little as 7 days, taking all the stress and hassle out of a traditional sale – and we even cover all the fees. Using this method means that you won’t achieve full market value, you’re trading a part of your properties value for the saved time and convenience.
