Why is the seller taking so long?

There are many reasons why the seller is taking so long to find another property, which includes them not being able to find a suitable home.

It maybe that the sellers cannot afford the type of property they are looking for, and they may be losing out because they are not able to offer full asking price.

Communication is key, which is why you should speak with the estate agent to ask them to chase the sellers for you. If the vendors fail to communicate properly, and if you feel you are being messed around, you are probably better to find another home.

Article written by Russell Bowyer who has been investing in property since purchasing his first commercial property in the 1990's for his own Chartered Accountancy business.

Russell owns a number of investment properties, which includes houses, flats and HMO's. More recently he has turned his creative side to investing in property using lease options.
