No chain homes – make your move simpler by picking a property to buy with no onward chain!
“A chain-free property is a property that is being sold by a vendor (home seller) who does not need to purchase a new property after they sell.”
With a late flurry of sales agreed over the last fortnight, we’re seeing a lot of buyers whizzing around looking for properties to move into around Christmas.
If you’ve just sold your home and your buyers are keen to crack on or if you just want to reduce risk and hassle on your purchase, you might be better off prioritising an empty property to buy.
Why? Chain free homes mean you’re not dependent on someone else’s choices and requirements. You’re not waiting for yet another person to decide where they want to go to, secure a purchase and then what happens if that owner needs to buy as well….
Put simply, the more people and properties involved in your chain, the more risk there is that something will go wrong or get delayed.
Why are some properties chain free? Well, apart from newly built homes, there are quite a few reasons including;
- Second home
- Liquidising an investment
- Owner moving into rented
- Part exchange
So, if you’d like to remove some uncertainty and worry (and who wouldn’t!), look for the three magic words in the property advert – “No onward chain”
