Should distressed sellers sell to fast cash buyers or use an estate agent?

Today we have completed a sale for a lady who desperately needed to sell her property and fast!

She went to the back pages of her property paper and found two companies who promised to buy any property for cash and complete in a few days. She called them up hoping that they would solve all her problems. Desperate for a quick sale she thought that this was the only way to realise cash out of her property within a week!

As a second thought she called us at Roberts, Edwards & Worrall Estate Agents, just to see if we could help. She assumed that she would more than likely sell to the fast cash buyers because they had the 'readdies' and could do a deal instantly!

Her fast cash buyers offered £35k and £39k. We visited her property and gave her a proper market appraisal and a realistic marketing price and selling price. We said that as it was a distressed sale, we would market it for £55k and would probably be able to sell for £45k to £50k right away with a cash ready buyer.

Well, we called her back a few days later, and she said she had decided to go with the offer of £39k which was on the table from a fast cash buyer. We asked her if the deal was done and that if we could find her a cash buyer that day who was in a position to complete within a few days then would she let us try? She agreed to give us 24hrs.

So one of our sales team was on to it! We gathered up 6 viewers who were all in a position to buy and complete within a week and took them over to the property. Then the offers were tabled. Considering the vendor was about to take £39k, the first offer was 45k, then in came a £50k, then a £50.5k, then finally a £56k. The final offer guaranteed a completion within 3 working days. They would pay all costs including ours, the solicitors and the EPC.

As you can imagine, the vendor was absolutely delighted. By using an estate agent she made an extra £17k plus costs!

You see it definately does pay by using an Estate agent. We have the contacts and are the experts in the property field who give plenty of FREE advice.

We were all so pleased to help this distressed homeowner.

So if you need to sell quickly don't forget that Estate Agents have the know how and have plenty of contacts who have the ready cash and can get the deal done fast.

Chaos at the Auction House!

There were scenes of chaos when more than 1,000 people tried to cram into the latest auction sale to be held by Allsops.

The sale, on Friday, had to be delayed and non-bidders were asked to leave the room as attendees spilled on to the street outside, from where some of the bidding took place.

The auction, handled by London auctioneer Gary Murphy, was the first-ever sale in Dublin of repossessed properties.

Most were put up by the Bank of Scotland, the mortgagor in possession of the majority of the 84 lots. Two were withdrawn and 11 did not reach their reserves but were sold nevertheless. However, the other lots sold at or above reserve.

The most expensive lot was a four-bedroom detached house that went for 550,000 euros against its reserve of 600,000 euros, and the cheapest was a three-bed semi for 30,000 euros.

Onlookers reckoned that most the prices were 60% lower than they would have been in 2007, with some lots – chiefly new apartments that had been bought by buy-to-let investors – going for 70% less than the prices at which they were originally marketed.

Murphy won plaudits for his handling of the auction, which took five hours to shift the lots, such was the interest. Usually, he rattles through 250 properties in six hours.

The auction is considered a landmark as it is seen as setting prices in the Irish property market, which has been enduring one of the biggest housing crashes ever known, and where a large number of properties have been repossessed by the banks.

Allsops are expected to return to Dublin to deal with another auction, as early as July. It is expected that the next sale will be a lot bigger – both in terms of lots and the venue.


What are Monday mornings like for you? Do you hate getting out of bed after a heavy weekend? Or had a long lie in on Sunday and want another on Monday? Do you loathe the monday morning commute in all that tarffic? Get to work to a pile of things to do? And Friday seems so far away?

Well for us, Mondays are great! We get into the office and get working with property offers that have either come in over the weekend or with potential buyers who can't wait to put their offers forward. By 9.30am the first few offers are in off the phone. Emails are checked and contact and negotiation is already underway! There always plenty of queries through the internet from the weekend. Facebook comments, twitter tweets, comments on our you tube channel and questions through our webpage. Always a busy start to the week.

Now that we are into the spring season and the sun is peeping through the clouds, the gardens are getting a bit of colour and the property viewers are out in abundance. Its a busy time again for us at Roberts, Edwards & Worrall.

So Monday sets us up for the week! The initial offers are dealt with, the rental application forms are getting processed, and now its time to get on the phones and get matching more viewers with our latest new properties to rent and sell.

Hows your Monday mornings?

Justice for the Hillsborough 96

Hi this is our first ever blog! It comes on a day when we remember a tragedy that hit Liverpool, the country and the world of sport. We are an old Liverpool firm of property experts. Roberts, Edwards & Worrall are an Estate Agent, a Property Management company and a Letting agent. We are family run and independent and have been serving the property market in Liverpool and its surrounds for 150 years. So we are part of Liverpools past, its heritage and hopefully its future.

Today we remember those 96 Liverpool fans who tragically died at a Cup match at Hillsborough, Sheffield on 15th Arpil 1989. At 3.06pm today there will be a minutes silence at a memorial ceremony at Anfield. I know that many not attending will also observe the silence and I'm sure many people, not just scousers, will remember that fateful day and share a moment of thought.

Our thoughts go to all those who lost parents, brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, friends and relatives on this day of rememberence.

You'll never Walk alone.

Mike and all at Roberts, Edwards & Worrall
