Newcastle, in Tyne and Wear in North East England is the eighth-most populous urban area in the UK and a member of the UK Core Cities Group and the Eurocities network.
The honour of being given the title of friendliest city in the UK is well deserved but so was its reputation for deprivation, with the demise of the shipyards, during the ‘70s and ‘80s.
And yet that’s been changing for a long-time now. The regeneration of Newcastle has been impressive and now the city can boast of being a centre of excellence for corporate headquarters, learning, digital technology, retail, tourism and cultural centres, contributing more than £13 billion towards the UK’s GVA.

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 (and buy) properties - whether homes, houses or flats through an agent - standing at 129 days nationally and 127 days in Newcastle, it is easy to see why people are increasingly turning away from agents and towards other means.
An agent will tend to be limited by their business model. Not only do they have to search for homes, houses and flats to sell but they need to search out buyers. 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 close to you might make an agent feel reassuring (yes they understand your area, your road, even) because they have to generally find homeowners to buy their properties they are not efficient at all, in terms of time, and being far from free their price reflects this.
The agent we work with is different, having both the marketing lists to contact buyers and sell properties, houses and flats quickly via an online auction and private lists (with a guide price) but also the means to buy homes and houses in Sheffield (on your road) from their own reserves.

The Best Possible Price
If you want to get the best possible price for your property 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 at a price that suits.
Selling a House Fast in Newcastle
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 Newcastle taking, on average, 127 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 search for an off-market to a cash buyer.
And selling homes 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.
