"After inheriting a property from my late Mother, I approached National Homebuyers. I had been caring for my Mother for a number of years and the thought of selling the property using an Estate Agent was a hassle that I did not feel able to cope with. The sale of the property was a difficult […]"

9 Examples of Properties You’d Never Expect to Sell

It is always exciting, and ever so slightly enthralling, to find a property that is a little bit different when you are looking to buy a new home. It cannot be denied that the British love to feel that our humble abode has that unique quality to it.

Whether you crave that chic, luxurious and glamorous feel of Italian interior design, or the stunning architecture associated with external African architecture; there is no denying that the British are forever seeking innovation and quirkiness when they are in the hunt for a new home.

However there are times when properties are down-right bizarre and in need of major improvement work to say the least! How often do you hear about a house that has a pig living in the garden next door? How about a property situated bang in the middle of an industrial estate?

Believe it or not, these are properties that have actually been sold in the UK in a matter of weeks. If you don’t believe me then please browse through National Homebuyer’s 9 strangest properties in the UK.

48 Habost, Ness, Isle of Lewis, HS2 0TG

This property on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland was derelict and even featured a crofting tenure. That wasn’t a problem for National Homebuyers, we still made a cash offer because we really do buy any house!

Drummoddie Croft, Whauphill, Newtown Stewart, DG8 9PY

If you are starting to believe that National Homebuyers have a particular interest in buying properties with crofting tenures, then we are sorry to say that you are wrong. This is simply a reflection of the fact that we buy any house, no what the location or condition!

109 North Road, Audenshaw, Manchester, M34 5RJ

While this property may look normal from the outside, there were some quirks about this house in Manchester. The property’s neighbours, for some bizarre reason decided to install bars on the inside of the windows and even kept a pet pig in the garden! Normally this would put home buyers off, but not National Homebuyers! The owners wanted to sell the house fast and we bought the property with minimal fuss and to a timescale that suited them.

Glenroyd Lodge, 640 New Church Road, Bacup, Lancashire, OL13 0NH

How appealing do you think a property in the middle of an industrial estate in Lancashire would be to prospective buyers? Not very? Well, despite the fact that the house was situated between a garage and a classic car refurbishment depot, we didn’t balk at offering the owner a cash offer to sell their house.

564 West Shore Park, Walney, Barrow-In-Furness LA14 3YW

While there is nothing strange about living in a park home, or indeed selling one, we simply included this, and the one below, to show you that it is not only traditional homes that we buy! While a lot of other quick house sale companies claim to buy any house, this usually isn’t the case but National Homebuyers guarantee to buy any house!

64 Vale View, Allington Gardens, Allington, Grantham, Lincolnshire NG32 2FN

As we said, there is absolutely nothing strange about a park home, but we had to include yet another example just to prove to you that we really do buy any house!

2 Yew Tree Cottages, Upper Lydbrook, Gloucester, GL17 9LQ

This cottage is situated on the north-west edge of the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, an area rich with Roman history and unspoilt natural beauty. It certainly does sound like an idyllic property that a lot of people would be looking to snap up in next to no time at all. Well, when we were first introduced to this property it was completely flooded and in need of major repair and refurbishment. As you can imagine those looking to sell the property were beginning to get more than a little desperate but we eased all of their worries and made them an offer to buy the property with minimal fuss. While we don’t have any photos of the property when it was flooded, here is an ‘after’ photo showing the renovation work we carried out before selling the property.

I’m sure that you will agree, a thing of beauty!!


The Globe, Coleman Head, Shrewsbury, SY3 7B

This end of terrace, four storey public house was in need of some major TLC and was completely derelict when we took it off the owner’s hands. Once again we kept our promise to buy any property and made sure that it would prove irresistible to any prospective buyer!


6 Murchison Grove, Thornton Cleveleys, FY5 3RA

This 3 bedroom property was completely derelict and in need of major refurbishment. As you can see, this sort of property wouldn’t be appealing to the average estate agent! Did that matter to National Homebuyers? No, of course not- it is true, we really do buy any house! National Homebuyers can help you Sell House Fast.
