The summer sales are over, though nowadays ‘Sale’ signs appear to be all-year-round facts of life for some retailers.
Of course, if so-called ‘sale prices’ merely tempt people to spend money on things they neither needed nor had planned to buy, it is counter-productive for the buyer.
To spend £800 rather than £1,000 on something you didn’t need is a false economy; rather than £200 saved it’s a case of £800 lost.
But where the price for something you actually require is kept down as a result of reducing the normal cost, that’s a genuine saving.
Take house sales as an example. Here the ideal scenario is a fast turn-around which sees ownership of a property transferred promptly and the cash for that transaction lodged just as quickly into the seller’s account.
Now some people baulk at the idea of a quick house sale, their reservation seemingly stemming from the belief that if it’s fast, easy and cheap it must be suspect.
So let Fast House Sale NI address those misgivings.
As market-leaders in Northern Ireland, they enjoy an excellent reputation for integrity. In addition, they willingly lay their track record on the line for examination by anyone who might have concerns.
In doing so, Fast House Sale NI readily acknowledge that some other companies, purportedly offering similar services, may not necessarily adhere to such high standards of integrity and customer care.
But don’t judge the pick of the crop by the poor standard of a few bad apples in the orchard.
So how exactly do Fast House Sale NI manage to cut their customers’ costs in selling their property?
The traditional means of selling a house is via an estate agent whose role is to market your property in the most productive manner before the widest possible audience in the hope of selling it for the highest-possible price.
In pursuit of this objective, the estate agent will advise you on the value of your home and then advertise it at that price on the open market.
Assuming the estate agent is successful – though this could take some considerable time and may also entail you having to reduce the original asking price – he/she will be entitled to a percentage of the sum for which the property was sold.
As well as providing ‘a wage’ in the form of commission for the estate agent, your costs to him/her will include those involved in advertising the property, with boards, newspaper ads and on-line.
You, meanwhile, are likely to have incurred some further costs as a result of having carried out a few minor improvements in the course of preparing your home for viewings by those possibly – but not necessarily – interested in buying it.
Examples? New carpet to replace any that are grubby or worn, a fresh lick of paint here and there and a few rolls of wallpaper to cover your teenage offspring’s black bedroom abomination.
To this financial outlay add the time involved in giving the place a general make-over in the form of tidying up the garage and the garden as they, too, will be on view when your potential buyers hopefully start calling.
With the name of the game being to minimise the cost involved in selling a property, it is here that Fast House Sales NI come into their own.
Since they are buying the property there in no need for any estate agent. No fees, costs or commission, then.

Fast House Sale also minimise the need for solicitors’ involvement, saving you yet more money.

Nor do any hidden ‘extra costs’ suddenly appear. They pay what they said they would pay. Always.
Completion time? Six to eight weeks from start to finish. But sometimes four.
