There’s a famous quote that goes something along the lines of “money isn’t everything, but it’s pretty close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale” – which, here at QuickBuyers, we’d like to think nicely sums up people’s often contradictory relationship with money. Put bluntly, it’s a fact of life that money makes the world go round, but far too many of us find ourselves in money troubles – especially these days, with the economic slump of the last few years having left many people in penury.
So… what are the best ways to get cash, and quickly? Here are some of our favourites… concluding with our ultimate favourite, selling your home to a company like QuickBuyers.
Selling your possessions
Just think of all of those unread books that you have lying around in your bedroom, or even those toys from your childhood in the loft. Maybe your shed is full of old DIY stuff that could be very useful to someone, or perhaps you could even live without your car, and would appreciate the major cash injection that it would bring? Simply rummaging through what you have already could give you loads of ideas for how to get cash and quickly.
Start your own business
You’d be amazed how many people don’t think they have an entrepreneurial bone in their body, until the need to get cash and quickly forces them to break out the ingenuity. Certainly, if you’ve followed the aforementioned tip by putting a few things on eBay or Amazon, then you might get yourself further into the habit by setting up a fully-fledged online store… or maybe you could offer dog walking, web design or car washing services? Consider what you’re good at, and what qualifications might assist you in that given field.
Cancel those subscriptions
Putting more money in your pocket is as much about avoiding existing prohibitive expenses as it is about earning fresh cash, and certainly, if you want to get cash and quickly, you may be surprised at the results that you can get from cancelling that gym membership or magazine subscription. Maybe there are cheaper alternatives, such as walking to and from work or only buying that magazine occasionally? Remember, though, that a magazine subscription can also help you to save money in the long run, given the massive discount that one can bring.
Sell your house with QuickBuyers
For most people, their most expensive possession is unquestionably their house. That leads many people to consider whether they could sell it, perhaps moving to somewhere smaller while they sort out their financial affairs. There are, however, various reasons for many people refusing to consider this step, with one of them being the great amount of stress and hassle that can be associated with it.
Trying to sell a property on the open market can be a particularly angst-ridden process for anyone needing to get cash and quickly. That’s why, rather than the more traditional estate agents that might take months to sell their property, such people may consider QuickBuyers, which will gladly buy any property in any condition.
