Means and Medians
A mean is calculated by adding up all the values and dividing that score by the number of values. It’s what we most commonly think of when we think of an average.
A median is a number found in the exact middle of a set of values.
Both numbers are useful but a mean-average can be heavily influenced by outliers (extreme numbers in the data set) whereas a median-average flattens these outliers out which, in many cases, can help to paint a more real-world picture.

Why Not Use An Estate Agent?
With the average length of time, it generally takes to sell a property - whether a house or a flat - through an agent standing at 129 days nationally and 96 days in Manchester, it is easy to see why people are increasingly turning away from agents and towards other means, such as a cash buying service, cash buyers or a quick sell service, to sell their property or house.
An agent will tend to be limited by their business model. Not only do they have to search for property to sell but they need to search out someone willing to make an offer on the house and buy. And when an agent is selling properties on the open market they have to help the two parties agree on a price, stay in contact with everyone involved and ultimately close the deal.
It's a lengthy process and buyers and sellers alike, often drop out. And while personal contact and the fact that they are often located close to you might make an agent feel reassuring (yes they understand your area) because they have to find homeowners to buy their properties they are not efficient at all, in terms of time. And they are far from free for the seller; the effort it takes them to sell a house is reflected in their price and fees.
The truth is, it costs a lot of cash to sell a house through an agent. The fees are always high.
The quick sell company we work with is different, having both the marketing lists to contact buyers to help them sell your house, quickly, via an online auction (with a guide price) and the means to buy your house in Liverpool from their own reserves in cash, with no fees attached.

The Best Possible Price
If you want to get the best possible offer on your house or properties then to search out, find and contact a good agent who knows your area and road, deals with the kind of property you trying to sell and can find the right buyer at the right price is still a good bet.
But the service isn't free for a seller and the price is still what people are willing to pay for homes.
Our partner will take any property (flats and houses) in any condition and search their own database for potentially interested buyers to search out a risk-free sale for your house, with much lower fees, at a price that suits.

Selling a House Fast in Manchester
There are many reasons why people may seek to sell their property and many reasons why selling quickly to a cash buyer might be preferable to the more traditional option of selling through an estate agent.
Most obviously there is the speed-of-sale. With properties in Manchester taking, on average, 96 days to sell, being able to have the money in the bank in just 7 days could be an attractive option for those who have inherited a property, those who own an empty property that is costing them money, those who need to move quickly because of work commitments or those in financial difficulty with their own home.
But speed isn't everything.
Some properties simply can not be sold through conventional means to homeowners and investors requiring a mortgage. So, if your house is of non-standard construction, has sitting tenants, is in a state of disrepair, has a short lease or is the victim of invasive plants like Japanese Knotweed, you may have little choice but to sell it off-market to a cash buyer.
And selling to a cash buyer does not necessarily mean you won't get a good price. You can still get full market value for a house sold in this way. So, increasingly, homeowners, landlords and investors are turning to this method of selling, simply because it is more straightforward and convenient than dealing with estate agents and timewasters.
Read on for an explanation on how it works and what our partner offers for a quick house sale.
