Looking to sell a flat fast in Edinburgh? You’re in luck.

Sell according to your timeframe. We’ll buy flats anywhere in Edinburgh. No hidden fees or upfront costs.

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, is also home to the highly respected University of Edinburgh. As a result, flats are the go-to choice for students looking to move to Edinburgh. Not only for students but as Edinburgh is quite a compact city; flats offer the best form of residence for many people. 

There are other requirements you need to consider before being able to sell a flat fast in Edinburgh. One factor which may reduce your chances of a fast sale is whether or not you have had an External Wall System survey (EWS1) carried out. Due to the Grenfell tragedy in 2017, flats with combustible cladding are often viewed as high risk by lenders, resulting in zero valuations. Therefore an EWS1 is needed to ensure buyers can get funding approved. However, an EWS1 will take time and money, with increased demand resulting in longer timeframes. Additionally, the survey will cost between £800 and £6000, with additional costs incurred if cladding needs to be removed.

How to sell flat fast in Edinburgh

If you need to sell a flat fast in Edinburgh, here are some things you need to keep in mind:

Requirements

Ensure you are aware of the External Wall System survey (EWS1). If you have enough time, apply for a survey to be conducted. The survey results will give you an idea of the likelihood of a quick sale or whether you’ll need to complete further work. If you don’t have the time but need to sell fast, get in touch as we can still buy flats without the survey being completed.

Estate agent route

If you’re looking to get the best value for your flat at or above market value while trying to sell fast, then the estate agent route may be your best option. If there is increased demand for flats, an estate agent may be able to line up an interested buyer quickly. However, this isn’t always possible and you should expect this to take around 3 months based on the statistics available that flats are usually on the market for 86 days in Edinburgh. 

Cash house buyer sale

The other option is to use a cash house buyer like We Buy Any Home to sell a flat quickly in Edinburgh. As the purchase will be made with 100% cash there are no additional delays. Additionally, we can make a free cash offer within 24 hours and can complete a sale in as little as seven days. While we can’t make cash offers above market value, we will aim to produce the most competitive cash offer that is possible.
