Selling a house is hard enough. Throw buying a new one into the mix and it’d be understandable if you felt overwhelmed. Buying and selling a house means that you’re likely to get involved in a property chain.
Property chains can be complicated things at the best of times and when they stretch beyond a few buyers, it can feel very fragile.
This is because you can only know one degree of separation from yourself in the chain, so you are left with many unknowns and a lot of questions!
For all the unknowns, ifs, buts, maybes, and confusion, Phil Spencer and his co-host, Chris Ducker, have some timeless tactics that can save you a lot of stress. Whether it’s knowing how to build momentum or acting with a little empathy, our resident experts share their thoughts on what you can do to make being in a property chain easier.
Why should you listen?
- Understand what a property chain really is
- How far you can and should reasonably look ahead
- How to manage the uncertainty of being in a slow-moving property chain
- Whether there really is a ‘best time’ for moving
- How to manage the fear of selling without a place to move to
- Why communication and momentum are your two best friends
