Trade Secrets of a Property Cash Buyer – Part 7 – Selling a home with non-standard construction.

By | May 17th, 2016|Property Cash Buyer Trade Insights|0 Comments

One of the issues that I commonly see, particularly with an ex local authority property or an ex council property, is that they are not made of what is called a ‘Standard Construction’

What is standard construction?

Generally speaking, a standard constructed property consists of brick and/or block walls under a tiled pitched roof sat on concrete foundations.
A Non standard constructed property is anything that differs from this. For example, they could be built with concrete, wood, or steel framed.

Typically, these properties are more difficult to obtain a mortgage on and therefore less valuable and more difficult to sell.

Buyers wanting to purchase a non-standard construction property often struggle with lenders to get a mortgage and most lenders will reject a mortgage on a non-standard construction home.

Some mortgage lenders have been known to offer what’s called a tension.
This means that the mortgage lender wouldn’t offer a full mortgage, (a full mortgage being between 85% – 95% of the price) meaning that the buyer cannot afford to make the purchase, and cannot offer the seller the full price.

How to sell a non-standard construction property
