Many buyers are on the hunt for a property needing work. With an asking price lower than the finished equivalent, the potential to make it your own and the possibility for a profit, buyers queue up to see if it’s the one for them. For example, we have just completed the sale of 18 Windmill Hill, a property very much in need of work. The demand for properties like this is very strong in the current market. Within 30 minutes of listing the property the phones were ringing off the hook. 12 potential purchasers arrived at an open house the following Saturday and a number of offers were made on the day. If you are considering selling a property that needs substantial work and don’t want the stress and cost of improving it, don’t worry, the market is still very strong for properties offering the buyer a project.
