Vendors and Buyers working with National Residential is positive

Working with National Residential is positive for both Vendors AND Buyers

At National Residential, we work hard to ensure that the house sale process we offer is quick, simple and efficient for both vendors and buyers, thanks to our experienced and friendly team of customer service professionals, property-sale specialists and panel solicitors.

We have just received glowing testimonials from both the Vendor and Buyer of one of the houses we helped to sell in January – a property in Sheffield where the sale completed in just 40 days:

Vendor – Ms. W. “Whenever I spoke to the team they were kind, to the point, and just got on with the job in hand. When I was worried about things that had happened in the past, I was reassured by the Customer Care team that they would look after the sale.”

Buyer – Mr N. “Everything moved far quicker than I expected and it was a very easy process. All the staff were helpful and I am really happy with the service.”

So whether you are looking to buy or sell a house in 2016, come to National Residential! We have a wide range of properties for sale via our online property auction and you can learn more about the process of buying a house through us here: House Buyers.

Selling your Home Online

Selling your Home Online

Your home is likely to have been the biggest purchase you have ever made, so when it comes to selling it, you probably only have one route in your mind – the tried-and-tested traditional route of the High Street Estate Agency: the familiar ‘man in suit’ coming round with a laser measuring device and a clipboard, taking photos of your unnaturally clean and clutter-free rooms, and then enthusiastically leading family after family around your home and emphasising words like ‘functional’ and ‘bijoux’ and drawing attention away from the slightly suspect plastering job in the kitchen…

When selling your home with traditional High Street Estate Agencies, the audience of potential buyers you are able to reach can be a little limited.  You may find your audience restricted to people who are physically passing by the Estate Agency and have a spare moment in their busy schedule to look in the window, as well as the few people who still look at the property pages of the local free newspaper (before ‘filing it’ straight in the recycling bin), and visitors to sites such as Rightmove and Zoopla who just happen to enter the exact search criteria for your unique property.

Selling your home online with National Residential is different – investors and property developers, as well as people looking to buy a new family home, regularly visit our innovative auction site.  Our Professional buyers aren’t necessarily put off by pictures of messy rooms, a dated kitchen or a lack of curb appeal, unlike many traditional house buyers.  Our professional buyers are looking for properties at the right price and that offer a good investment opportunity, and they want a fuss-free sale that can be completed quickly and efficiently, something that National Residential can help to provide.

So why not consider selling your house online through National Residential? Phone today for more information about our innovative, yet trustworthy, selling process – call us now on 0800 612 3694 or 01244 757152

Trusted Online Estate Agent

Trusted Online Estate Agent

Every so often, we get a telephone call from a customer asking ‘Why can I trust National Residential with my property sale? What makes you so different from High Street Estate Agencies?’ and we are always happy to explain the numerous benefits of selling property with us!

Let’s clear up one important detail straight away! We are registered with the Property Ombudsman, just like High Street Estate Agencies, and are therefore subject to the same ‘good practice’ guidelines. This means that we work incredibly hard to ensure that all of our actions are honest and transparent, and will work closely with both vendor and buyer to ensure property sales happen swiftly and easily, without complication or ‘hidden’ fees.

However, unlike high street Estate Agencies, we ensure that all our buyers are chain free and have either a mortgage or cash funds in place to complete a house purchase within 56 days. Therefore, unlike High Street Estate Agents, the risk of a property sale falling through is greatly reduced! In fact, over 95% of our agreed sales actually complete – a great statistic, and one that we are incredibly proud of!

The fact that we are an online Estate Agency doesn’t mean that you are left without support and made to deal with the entire House Sale process on your own. We have a superb team of experienced staff working at the National Residential Head Office, and we will do all that we can to ensure that your house sale is as smooth and simple as possible! Does it sound too good to be true? It’s not! Just take a look at one of our recent testimonials:

Ms. W. “Whenever I spoke to the (National Residential) team they were kind, to the point, and just got on with the job in hand. When I was worried about things that had happened in the past when previous house sales had fallen through, I was reassured by the Customer Care team that they would look after the sale.”

If you looking for a fast property sale service from a trusted team of experienced House Sellers, come to National Residential – we can’t wait to hear from you!

A Quick Sale – National Residential

A Quick Sale

 “About 15 years ago, my family found themselves in a bit of a difficult situation.  We had overstretched ourselves with our mortgage in order to invest in a property that had a lot of potential, but redundancy hit before we were able to realise that potential.  As a result, our capacity to continue paying large monthly repayments put more and more pressure on our small family.  We put our house up for sale with a traditional High Street Estate Agency, but whilst we waited for our property to sell, the entire focus of our life became about money: How could we keep making mortgage repayments on a reduced income? How much work could we take on to cover the mortgage and our essential living expenses? It was a difficult time, and with hindsight, a guaranteed and quick sale – the likes of which National Residential offer – could have been a good option for us”

 This is a real account from a member of the National Residential team, and highlights the stress that a house sale – particularly one that has been imposed on you for negative financial reasons – can have on a family.

Here at National Residential, we know that there are many reasons why people have to sell their properties quickly (from divorce to relocation, from inherited properties to issues with debt) and we try very hard to provide clear and non-judgmental information and support at what we know can be a difficult time for anyone.  Should you decide to sell with us, we will endeavour to make the process as easy for you as possible and can have the money in your bank account within 7 days if you opt for our ‘7-day House Sale’ Service and meet the qualifying criteria.

With National Residential, it is simple to place a bid on one of our properties, and you can do this easily, 24 hours a day from the comfort of your PC or mobile device. We use the very latest technology to enable buyers to monitor properties, place bids, arrange viewings, ask questions, and to keep buyers constantly informed of the current bids and the ‘Best and Final’ end dates for online bidding. But we do not offer a ‘faceless’ or impersonal service – we work with the very best local estate agents to carry out viewings and to help buyers make offers on our properties.

In order to make an offer on one of our properties, buyers simply have to register to bid with ourselves or with our local agent. If your bid is successful, our customer service team and panel solicitors will work closely with you and the vendor in order to ensure that completion can be achieved quickly and easily.

We are instructed by vendors to sell their properties for the best price possible within just 28 days. Buyers must be chain-free and have either mortgage or cash funds to complete within 56 days. Successful buyers are required to pay a small holding deposit of 1% (minimum £1000) of the purchase price in order to secure a property. We therefore strongly advise that you carry out market research and due diligence on any property before you bid.

Auction Properties

Auction Properties

In this ‘Digital Age’, where anything and everything is available to purchase online, the likelihood is that most people have used an auction site to buy or sell something, however small.  I’ve used eBay, for example, a few times – it’s quick and easy to use, though I am extremely conscious of the fact that I don’t want to get too comfortable using it and end up with a whole house full of random stuff purchased ‘because it was a bargain’…  Anyway, despite their user-friendly nature and the fantastic range of products that are available on buy through online auction sites, they do still appear to have issues associated with their human users – how many of you have run into problems, either with a buyer or a seller, who doesn’t fulfil their end of the sale? I certainly have.

As a result of issues that people may have experienced on other auction sites, when some people see National Residential’s innovative auction service, they are a little bit dubious – they want to know: is it really possible to sell a house with an online auction system? Given that nearly everyone has had a dodgy experience on an auction site where either a buyer or seller hasn’t fulfilled their obligations, how can National Residential ensure that buying a house via their online auction works for both the vendor and the buyer?

National Residential’s success with their online auction system is all down to the technology that they have incorporated into the system, as well as their dedicated team of experienced customer service staff who work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that all parties involved in the sale are serious and have the funds available to complete. Their hard work really has paid off – thanks to their rigorous buyer approval procedures, 95% of all agreed sales complete!

National Residential have invested heavily in the technology behind their auction system, ensuring that buyers and sellers have access to the auction site and control over their bidding no matter where they are, or what the time of day. Bidders are sent regular weekly text messages informing them of the current bid, their current highest bid, and the closing date for the auction so that they can carefully monitor the auction process. But unlike other auction sites, when the winning bid is placed, the buyer and vendor are both supported by National Residential’s Customer Service Team and their panel Solicitors and brokers throughout the buying process to ensure that the sale can move quickly and efficiently towards completion.

Once a high bid has been made, National Residential’s experienced Customer Service team will contact the bidder to ensure that they are happy with the buying process. If they are, they must agree to pay a non-refundable holding deposit to secure the property once their final bid has been accepted – this helps to ensure that the buyer is serious and in a position to complete quickly on the property in question, helping the vendor to achieve their goal of a quick and easy sale.

So don’t dismiss UK property auctions before you have taken a good look at the National Residential Website to find out more about the process. Take a look at some of the properties currently listed too – you never know, you might find the perfect family home or investment opportunity just sitting there, waiting for your bid!
