An empty property can provide owners a considerable cash windfall.

However, returning a property back into use is not just a highly profitable opportunity for the owner, but it is also creating a valuable housing resource at a time when many people desperately need good homes.

We are able to offer advice and support to help people who are looking to sell their empty property.

There are several ways in which you can sell your property.

  • Sell it yourself
  • Sell it through an estate agent
  • Sell it through the Council’s Opportunity Register

Most people opt to sell their property through an estate agent, a professional property seller who can provide advice on its value, the best ways to sell it and what investment, if any, you may need to make in the property to attract potential buyers.

You should ask three reputable estate agents to visit the property to give you a valuation and their professional opinion on its sale. You should compare your ideas with their advice and choose the option that seems best for you.

You should be realistic about the property’s potential.

Local house prices will provide a guide but you must assess the condition and facilities of your own property when asking for an estimated sale value.
