Want to sell your house but can’t find anything to buy?

Do you want to sell your house but can’t find anything to buy? You are not alone. Many homeowners struggle to decide to put their house on the market because they haven’t found one to buy. However, with Midlands’ house prices at an all-time high, it makes sense to sell now to get the best price for your house. But, how can you do this if you haven’t got anywhere to go?

Want to sell your house but can’t find anything to buy?

The main thing to remember is that having your house on the market and under offer/sold gives you immense buying power. Something you need when there are very few homes on the market. Even though you haven’t found something, you will be in a great position to offer when you do.

Key benefits to selling your house even if you haven’t found one to buy

  • Prices are at an all-time high, and supply is very low, which means you’re likely to get an excellent price for your house.
  • You are in a great position to offer when you see a home you love.
  • Your offer has a much better chance of being accepted when competing with buyers who haven’t sold already.
If you sell your house before finding a new one in a market like this, we encourage you to consider moving into a short-term rental or with family/friends. Then when the right property comes up, you’re ready to swoop in with your offer. The seller will look at your position (chain-free) favourably and may even accept a lower offer.
Another option is to go with ‘low-key’ marketing. For example, your agent will market your house to buyers they already know instead of listing it on Rightmove.
Finally, avoid missing out on your dream home by simply signing up for JG Property Alerts. You’ll get the heads up of houses for sale before they appear on Rightmove! You’ll no longer have the frustration of seeing a property sell before you’ve even had the chance to book a viewing.
