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.
