While some properties get snapped up within hours of hitting the market, others can take a little longer to become someone’s new home.

Properties which have been waiting for a buyer for some time could mean you are in a better position to haggle the price down, so there’s a chance you could grab a bargain.

A welcome prospect, particularly in the current climate.

Of course, one of the reasons a property might not be selling is because the vendor is asking too high a price and is unwilling to come down on it, so it’s important to do you research on the current market and compare prices to recent sales in the area.
