"How long does it actually take to move home?" I hear you ask: good question.

Balls of string at the ready!

How Long?

You could be lucky and move home in a few days or a couple of weeks. However, there are many, many components which make up a house move.

The likelihood is that other house or flat moves will be linked to your move and one or more will require some kind of finance.

The more links in the conveyancing chain, inevitably, the more complex and time consuming your move may become.

Sale Only

But, let's not be too pessimistic. 

You could be lucky and your sale fly through, leaving you wondering what all the fuss was about.

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt...

If you're selling only and not buying on, you're normally in the best position - provided you are not at the top of a chain of transactions.

One seller and one buyer (a first time buyer, someone renting, or an investor) would be your best bets.

A word of caution: just don't get too excited early when your buyer says they are paying cash. Sometimes, we find out that the cash is actually coming from a Bank or Building society in the form of a mortgage.

Not intentional deception but more of a misunderstanding of phraseology.

A good esate agent will interrogate your buyer to make sure there in no miscommunication.

Warm Down

For some extra reading, we've written a more detailed blog about it, so if you would like to learn more you can continue reading here.

Time to get some rest - we'll be alerting you tomorrow with stage 2. Keep up the good work.
