How to Take Your House off The Market Correctly

So, for one reason or another you have sadly had to take your house off the market. It may look like a minefield, but pulling your house is easy if you follow the right process. In this blog we are going to be showing you how to take your house off the market safely.

When it comes to taking your house down, the easiness depends on your situation. If you have just put your home on the market and haven’t had any viewings, then the process is simple. All you must do is talk to your Estate Agent about taking your property off the market and there should be no complications. There may be some agent fees which you have to pay but these should have been explained to you before you put your property up for sale through that agent.

If you have had several viewings or even an offer this is where it can get tricky. Fees are almost guaranteed, so this is where you really need to think about your decision. Is it worth taking your property off the market? Would you benefit more from taking your property off the market? It’s crucial you take these points into account.

Another reason you might need to take your house off the market is if you feel the estate agent is not fulfilling their role. If you come to this decision you must have first done your research. Are buyers able to find your home? Is your estate agents incising buyers to view the property? Once you have a feasible case, you must come forward to your agent to discuss commission fees and any other terms that may be in your contract.

If you are edging on taking your property away from that particular agent, first we recommend you file a complaint. As always you should speak to your agent directly first, then if nothing improves you should escalate your complaint and take it to a higher force.
