There are many aspects to consider that may help to speed up the sale of your property, many of these with potentially very little investment on your part so that you can be in a position to make your property more attractive to potential buyers, including homeowners and those that may be looking at investment opportunities.
Here are a few things that you may want to explore:
- Are there small cosmetic changes that may impact the value of the property?
- Could your property benefit from an extension on ground or upper levels?
- If you have a larger home and are selling to downsize or upgrade but are worried about the impact of the market on the value of your home, you could consider getting permission to convert the house into flats. This would de-risk the property for potential investors and small developers looking for opportunities, widening the net of potential buyers whilst maximising the sale value. Planning departments are still working so it is possible to get relevant the paperwork in place in the interim.
- If you are not looking to sell, but the current climate has impacted your income stream, you should look at your property when considering the options available to you. You can explore the possibilities of getting more from your existing home. If you have a larger garden or space on the side of your property, or even access from the rear, there may be scope to consider selling the plot with planning permission. Alternatively, you can seek permission and carry out the build to generate a passive income from the end of the garden. Understanding the constraints and what is possible in this instance is key if this is a strategy you want to explore. An early conversation is a useful way to see what options are available.
We are here to discuss opportunities and able to facilitate discussions remotely so you can fully understand your options.
