"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 […]"

"We wanted to up-size to make room for our growing family, but needed to sell our flat first and National Homebuyers enabled us to do this quickly. They simplified the whole process of selling and enabled us to purchase our dream property! What’s putting buyers off your home?"

Mr & Mrs H, Space

What’s putting buyers off your home?

If you’re struggling to sell your property, it’s important to know why – so then you can decide whether to make improvements or find an easier method of selling.

We all have our particular tastes and preferences – and these are never more important than when deciding whether to buy a home. For some people, a property purchase is simply an investment, but for many it’s a place that they’ll depend on for their quality of life… possibly for many years to come.

Financially-motivated property buyers can also be fussy, however, as they know there are certain features that will put buyers off and therefore make it harder for them to sell the property in the future, even if they make improvements.


Structural problems
This is the most serious reason that many sales don’t proceed, as people are very worried about being ‘stuck’ with a home that has problems with its roof, walls or foundations, among other things. If your property has visual signs of structural issues or a surveyor highlights areas of concern, it could be very difficult to sell your home without getting these fixed.

Bad decor
The aesthetic appeal of a home is a very personal and subjective thing – but there are a few rules that can help you sell more easily. Neutral colours, a minimalist approach to decor and cleanliness will all make a rapid sale more likely. However, sometimes there are problems which are difficult to fix, such as a dated bathroom suite or kitchen cabinets with bold colours.

Sadly, it’s no good having a perfect home in the middle of a bad area. Buyers are becoming more and more aware of the importance of location, so don’t spend a fortune on decorating if high crime rates or untidy streets are a feature of where you live. Sometimes it’s unavoidable, as a place was nice when you moved there and then went downhill, but it’s important to be aware of your property’s limitations and manage your expectations accordingly when setting an asking price.

Alternatively, you can avoid the stress of thinking about these issues by getting a cash offer for your home from a UK property-buying company. Call National Homebuyers on 08000 443 911 or request a call back to find out how much you could get if we buy your property.
