My Property is not Selling Quick – What are the Options Available?

These days homeowners no longer need to rely on estate agents if their property is not selling quick.

One option now available to homeowners if properties aren’t selling quickly is to consider selling their home to regulated property buyers. Property buying companies started to become popular around 10 years ago when homeowners wanted another solution to sell their home quickly if their estate agent was unable to do so.

Please see below a timeline of how the number of regulated property buyers have grown over recent years, which is purely down to an increase in demand for their services:
