Trying to upgrade but can’t sell your current home? - The Quicker Sale

Trying to upgrade but can’t sell your current home?


Families wanting to move into larger properties find themselves stuck in first-time buyer flats because they cannot sell their homes or get a mortgage.


According to Lloyds TSB,  ”second steppers”, those who have a first home to sell and who want to move up the ladder, are increasingly finding themselves stuck in unsuitable accommodation. Many bought properties at the peak of the market in 2007, and may have negative equity to cope with as well as a lack of buyers.


“One in five” now believes that it is harder to move up the housing ladder than to get on it in the first place, The Telegraph reports. “First-time sellers are now faced with some very tough challenges when trying to make their next move on the property ladder and many are finding it more difficult than getting on the ladder in the first place,” said Stephen Noakes, mortgage director of Lloyds TSB. “It is vital that this group of home movers receive more support and attention as they play an intrinsic role in getting the housing market moving again.”


A recent study by HSBC also found that as many as 360,000 home owners are unable to move up the property ladder thanks to a combination of sliding house prices and more restrictive lending rules. Does this apply to you? With a lack of buyers, the open market is failing to provide time or cost effective sales. Here at The Quicker Sale, we offer a hassle free, cash-in-hand service for properties across the UK which could see completion in as little as seven days.

Are you looking to sell your home?

The country’s high street will not recover for another three years and will underperform for the rest of the decade, impacting heavily on the UK property market.


According to the Telegraph, retailers will have to weather a “tough trading environment” as householders’ hoarding of cash and debt repayment mean consumer spending will fail to return to pre-recession levels before at least 2015.

The forecast from the Ernst & Young ITEM Club suggests the worst of the recession could be behind us but warns a recovery could be derailed by consumer habits and put under renewed pressure by rapidly increasing mortgage costs.


The economists expect Bank of England interest rates, the foundation for mortage costs, to climb to 4-5pc by 2015, leading to a quadrupling in the percentage of household disposable income going towards debt interest payments to 3.2pc.

“I just can’t seem to sell my house”

We all know how difficult it is to sell your house in the current climate, even if you decide to lower the sale price. An entire French village, which caught global public attention after failing to find a buyer for the price of a one-bedroomed Paris flat, was on Monday finally auctioned off to a noted photographer.


According to The Telegraph, the abandoned hamlet of Courbefy in central France consists of 19 buildings, a swimming pool, stables and a tennis court. It went on sale at a starting price of 330,000 euros and was sold to the South Korean photographer known as Ahea for 520,000 euros.


Ahea, the buyer, who has an exhibition scheduled at the Louvre Museum next month, was not present for the auction.
The artist, who already has interests in several organic farms, prides himself on his website on allowing “nature to live as it was intended to live, without the interference of man and man-made additives of any kind”.
The mayor of neighbouring Saint-Nicolas Courbefy, Bernard Guilhem, le maire de Saint-Nicolas Courbefy said: “I am reassured that the village has finally be sold and if the (buyer’s) project is still unclear, I’m convinced it will recreate life and stimulate the economy. There will be jobs,” he said.

Vanessa, who had spent three years putting up with the ghosts and counted at least a dozen, said yesterday: “I thought, ‘As a single mum I can’t live like this’.”

Are you facing repossession? Sell your Liverpool home today


The latest CML figures reveal nearly 10,000 properties were repossessed in the first quarter of this year, according to The Telegraph


Monopoly board properties

A total of 9,600 properties were repossessed in the UK in the first quarter of 2012, according to new figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). The latest figure is a 10pc increase on the fourth quarter of 2011.


The CML has described the situation as “stable” and said that its previous prediction that repossessions would rise to 45,000 this year could be revised down later this summer when it publishes its housing market forecasts.


“Continuing pressures on household finances, changes to welfare benefits and an upward drift in mortgage rates all have the potential to disrupt the current stable picture,” it cautioned.


The report also highlighted a “modest improvement” in arrears. The number of mortgages with arrears of 2.5pc or more of the outstanding balance fell to 157,800, down from 160,300 at the end of December and 170,500 a year ago.


Mark Harris, chief executive of broker SPF Private Clients, said that while it is encouraging news, it is important that complacency does not creep in.


The CML report also showed new buy-to-let data which shows new lending had fallen 5pc in the first quarter of 2012, with 32,300 loans completed worth £3.7bn, compared to 34,300 loans worth £3.9bn in the last three months of 2011.

I want to sell my house… quickly!

If the statement above really does sum up your circumstances at the moment and you are having no joy through the usual channels within the housing market, you might want to consider another option.


For those who are saying “I want to sell my house quick” then it is worth considering the latest statistics in relation to the problems experienced by property sellers.


When it can take up to four months or even longer to sell your home in the current economic climate and with mortgages becoming harder to come by, you may find time is passing by while the house is still no closer to a sale.


By going to a reputable quick home sale specialist, you can avoid the pitfalls experienced by many homeowners when their house sale falls through.


It is a sad fact that around one in three house sales end up falling through before completion and so this can cause a lot of frustration as well as wasted effort for those hoping to move on. The benefits of using a house buying company are manifold.


This is because you won’t have to worry about the potential buyer finding it hard to raise enough for a deposit or get turned down for a mortgage at the last minute. The issue of finance can be eliminated as you get a fair price for your property and can obtain straight cash for it instead. Therefore, those declaring “I want to sell my house quickly” can do just that. Visit the homepage to receive a free, no obligation offer today.


Recession round two. How will you sell your Nottingham home?

According to The Telegraph, Britain’s hopes of escaping recession are dented by a swathe of bad economic news that showed consumer confidence plummeting, producer prices soaring and the construction sector failing to spark.

Producer output prices – those charged by manufacturers for their goods – rose by a larger than expected 0.7pc on the previous month, according to data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS)


Meanwhile, the contraction in the hard-hit construction industry during the first quarter was even steeper than first estimated, the agency said. Output from the sector shrank by 4.8pc compared with the previous three months, rather than the 3pc initially reported, as public sector construction weakened and infrastructure work fell off.


The ONS said the revision is expected to deepen the slump reported for the wider economy, meaning it shrank by 0.3pc in the first three months of the year rather than the 0.2pc thought.


The building sector accounts for less than 8pc of the economy’s total performance, but its large decline at the start of the year drove the UK’s official return to recession.


The figures came after an index produced by Nationwide showed that consumer confidence deteriorated sharply in April as people became more worried about the availability of jobs and shied away from buying big-ticket items such as cars and homes.
