Hi "Investor" - that doesn't seem right at all. Can you please email details to me personally - david.coughlin@national-residential.co.uk so I can look into this for you. We run a modern auction and we set Reserve Prices that are keener than estate agency valuations to sell quickler- but not usually around 90% market value - not 60%? so I want to check this out for you asap. Thanks, David... Read More

Hi Mick, yes all those costs you mention quickly add. However, some professional landlords are really in control of their portfolios and have great tenants who keep paying rents and agree to leave with standard notice and they also have the builders/resources to take their time and refurbish and sell when empty for top price.

However, times have changed for most landlords. Tenants do not play ball unless you really win them over and selling with tenants is too challenging for many landlords. We go all out to get tenanted properties sold for best prices and completed fast. Saves costs and stressful headaches for most landlords for sure.... Read More

Hi, this really depends on the property but as a rule: where estate agents are listing properties at say £160,000 but are in fact selling for £150,000 in 3-6 months, we are achieving £140-145K in 28 days. We achieve on average 95% estate agent prices. Some HMO's of high standard we well for higher prices than Bricks and Mortar valuations based on yield - but that really depends on the condition and rental income being really very good. Happy to discuss anytime - hope that helps - David... Read More

Lots for landlords to think about: (i) will CGT go up in budget so better sell now? (ii) will end of stamp duty holiday - now extended till June - dampen sale prices - again so better sell now?; (iii) Section24 and tax bills need paying - so better sell now.
It's decision time for lots investors and we are getting stuck in to help those who decide they want to sell.... Read More
