Selling property? What are your chances?
There are over 800,000 properties for sale in the UK at the moment. The average Estate Agent has 50 properties on its books for sale at any time and sells one property per week. So you could say you have a 1 in 50 chance of selling your property this week.
Alternatively you could consider how long it will take to sell your property - on average around 8 months.
You might think that if a property sells every week and there are 50 properties for sale it would take nearly a year to sell yours. But not every property listed for sale is sold, and good evidence reveals that around a third of properties are withdrawn from the market unsold in current conditions.
So as a seller what can you do to improve your chances?
1. Request our free to download "Guide to Selling Your Property"
2. Discover what your property is actually worth based on evidence from recent sales
3. Consider using our "No Commission" sales service - if you sold your property within a month it could cost as little as £328 plus VAT, if it took 8 months it could still only cost you as little as £538 + VAT.
