Selling Your House Quickly To Move Abroad
The UK is a fellow member of the European Union and for this reason there is a freedom of movement for all to live and work in other European countries. This has subsequently lead to large numbers of people selling properties quickly to move abroad to warmer climates.
Unfortunately the property market in the UK is rather subdued and when a conscious decision is made to move abroad to pastures new, there is no quick fix solution. There are a number of things which need to be considered when emigrating, firstly your house might not sell quickly and may result in a lengthy house chain. Another major consideration is your job, do you need to give notice at work and as part of your visa, do you need to have a job secured in the country your moving abroad too?
Trying to sell a property quickly to move abroad is always a bit of a guessing game. How long will it take and how will you time a sale of your property so that it ties in with you emigrating? Unfortunately relying on estate agents to secure a quick house sale so you can move abroad is just not reliable. The UK property market is subdued and extremely seasonal, unless you are selling your property between March – September, don’t expect a quick house sale for emigration.
Property is no a liquid asset, predominantly down to lengthy house chains and more importantly broken house chains. Have you read our blog on How to Avoid House Chains? Did you know the average house sale through to completion takes 9 months?
