A huge part of what people find attractive about Lewisham is that although it is one of the most populated areas in Greater London, it still retains a strong sense of community. Something you don’t often find with larger areas. It is what many would consider an example of “real London living”. A huge residential area that’s full of professionals and families of a wide range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
Another huge attraction to Lewisham is that the property is more affordable there than it is in other parts of London, with a reasonable quality of life. If you own a house in Lewisham and are weighing up your options for selling, you are likely to have a lot of success.
However, how quickly you get that success depends on the avenue you take to sell your Lewisham house. For instance, if you choose the conventional and popular route of using an estate agent, you may well still sell your home, but it’s unlikely to be very quick.
There is a lot involved in working with an estate agent to sell your property. There are also a lot of different people and organisations linked together in what is normally referred to as a house chain or property chain. For the sale to go ahead, everyone that’s involved in the property chain needs to fulfil their role.
When they don’t or when there are issues this is when sales fall through and you are left, still trying to sell your house, but will less money in your bank account than when you started. And that’s only if the estate agent has no problems with your property itself.
It is not uncommon for estate agents to either charge a higher rate of commission and fees or point blank refuse to work at selling a particular home if it has issues that they think will make it harder to find a buyer.
The kind of scenarios we are referring to is if the home is an inherited property, is about to get repossessed or has some serious subsidence problems and structural damage that needs to be fixed. Estate agents are also less likely to sell your house for you if it is built near an abandoned mine shaft entrance or has a serious case of Japanese Knotweed on its grounds.
