Sell house fast as I’m moving abroad

Author: nwhomebuyers | Updated on July 27, 2018

You’ve landed on this page for one of two reasons:

  • You’re moving away and need to sell your home fast or
  • You’re moving abroad and need to sell quickly.


Moving to a different part of the country or even to a new country is exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. It opens up a world of possibilities… and new stresses!

One of the most stressful factors in moving to a new location – whether that is abroad or somewhere in the UK – is the hassle of moving houses.

I’ve been offered a new job abroad and need to sell my house quickly

We can eliminate the stress of you having to sell your house by being your buyer. Once you’ve taken the decision to move abroad and start life afresh, give us a call and within 24 hours, we can have a sale agreed at fair price to both parties.

  • You may have one or more of the thoughts circling in your head:
  • I need to find a buyer for my house as I’m moving abroad
  • Should I sell my house privately as I’m moving abroad
  • Leaving the country so I need to sell up quick

If any of those scenarios affect you and your house is located somewhere in the North West, then please get in touch.

We don’t come across this scenario that often, it must be said, but we have had situations whereby the owner of a house wants to sell their house speedily as they are soon to start a new life outside of the UK.

Need to sell house immediately as I’m moving abroad

The phrase ‘need to sell immediately’ gives a whole different complexion to the sale of a house compared to ‘need to sell soon’. Don’t worry as we can still help.

It could be that you’ve actually tried to sell your house using the traditional estate agency method, but the house just isn’t selling!

Need to relocate and can’t sell your house

We’ve had a few conversations with potential customers who say that their “house isn’t selling and I’m moving abroad soon” or “my house is still up for sale but I’m moving abroad in the next few weeks”.

Don’t be one of these people as such as scenario increases stress tenfold!

However, don’t panic if you do fall into any of the above groups as we are on hand and can have a cash offer in your email inbox within 24 hours.

Why would I not stick to the traditional estate agency way of selling?

You may be asking, what would prompt an individual to sell a house privately as opposed to list it using the traditional method? It would usually fall into one or more of the below:

  • Selling a house with an estate agent can take between 3 months to 9 months (Source: Zoopla)
  • You would need to either fly back to the country once in a while to sign legal documents or to arrange a notary to sign documents on your behalf.
  • Did you know 1 in 4 agreed sales fall apart? You really don’t want to be in this position when you’re trying to settle down in your new location.

The three reasons above are the most cited as to why a homeowner wouldn’t use a traditional estate agent to market their properties.

The key word in that last sentence is to ‘market’. The estate agents don’t have the cash to buy the house – they have to go through a slow laborious process of getting it ‘out there’.

We take all that middle stuff out of the way as we buy with cash and can have an offer in writing to you within 24 hours. This is a win-win for all parties and puts a smile on the face of everyone in your family.
