Everyone always talks about how stressful it is buying a new house. The paperwork, the research and the decisions can be quite overwhelming for some. Here at Naomi J Ryan, we’re here to help you every step of the way and try to turn the whole experience into an exciting one!
We realize in an ideal world, everything would slot into place and you’d sell your old home the day you move into your new home. However, sadly, we don’t live in an ideal world and the process doesn’t always work out that neatly. A concern for some of our sellers is that they’ll put their house on the market and someone will make an offer before they find their dream home. This worry also works the other round, if you don’t have a buyer but your ideal property comes up you are the left in the position of facing competition from other buyers in a position to proceed.
Our best advice is that, as in life, honesty is always the best policy. We’d recommend getting your property on the market and make it as appealing as possible to prospective buyers (check out our previous post if you’re looking for some tips) and when a buyer is found, be totally honest with them about the fact you’re still looking for your dream home. If you are honest with the prospective buyer from the outset, then they are able to make an offer in the knowledge you are still searching thus removing some of the stress sellers often put themselves under as everyone will be on the same page and aware of the possible timeframes.
As always, we’re just a phone call away so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re looking for any advice at all, regardless of what stage you’re at. And remember, we offer a free, no obligation valuation for anyone considering selling, so you’ve really got nothing to lose. Call us on 01392 215283.
