You are probably researching the fast house sale industry thoroughly before deciding on dealing with a particular company, and we for one don’t blame you. There are many companies claiming to buy 100% cash buyers; many companies making claims like ‘sell your house fast for full market value’ and some companies with such claims as ‘sell your house fast in 24 hours’. We suggest your starting point is visiting the following recognised and authority industry links before making any decisions:

Citizen's Advice - free and impartial advice regarding civil matters.
The Property Ombudsman - created to help ensure buyers and sellers had access to an independent service in the UK.
The National Association of Property Buyers - an independent service formed to make the property industry safer for everyone as mentioned above.

Once you have submitted your property details online, and received your free indicative house offer; a member of our cash valuation team will be in touch to discuss your offer in more detail. Using the information you provided in your online offer, as well as house price research – our valuation team will be able to give you a more solid cash figure, as well as discuss alternative options that you may not have considered when initially thinking about selling your property.
If you do decide that the cash offer we present to you is acceptable, we then proceed to value your property using an independent body known as RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors). The cost of this valuation is usually around £500 which is something we cover – meaning you have nothing to pay. You are also under no-obligation to sell, regardless of what RICS value your property at. If you are selling for cash we cover all of your conveyancing costs.
Our cash offers are all based on estimates until RICS carry out an official valuation. Although our team are usually very accurate, and as we are experienced and time served know various areas and what the likely valuation is going to be. However, sometimes we do get it wrong, and our cash offers need to be adjusted accordingly. This is all done transparently, and we keep you informed every step of the way – so you are firmly in the driving seat.
Our cash buying arm are one of the biggest cash funds in the industry and we aim to provide a service that ensure customers are looked after from start to finish.

Assisted Home Sale - with an assisted sale we work with you to get your house sold quickly on the open market by taking full control of the sale process. If this means we have to refurbish the property we will do so at our cost.
Quick Sale Estate Agency - sometimes our cash offers are not high enough or you don't need to sell in such a hurry - but are still motivated to sell quickly. Our estate agency model is one of the best in the industry and can get you moving fast.
Lease Option - a lease option is where we take control of a property you own and agree to complete at a later date. This is great if you have negative equity in the property.
Selling At Auction - we work with one of the UK's largest auction companies and can assist with a no sale no fee national auction of your home.
Some unscrupulous companies massively reduce their offer right at the last minute in a process known as 'chipping'. In the hopes the seller will accept any price right at the point of completion the companies in question make unrealistic demands to the seller, which includes a huge discount on what they have already agreed. You can protect yourself from this by firmly asking for a written offer before agreeing to sell. Read more about chipping here.
Some quick sale companies offing a cash buying service don’t actually have the cash available to carry out a sale. Instead they try to tie customers into an estate agency type agreement in hopes they will find a buyer for the customer in a given timeframe. This stops the vendor using another estate agent and restricts them to waiting until the contract is over.
A number of quick sale companies will try to charge a fee for a valuation. This fee is usually paid upfront and ranges from £150 to £500. We recommend only dealing with a cash buying firm that cover all of your initial costs such as valuations.
Some quick sale agencies claim to have investors they will market a property to, however what they usually are doing is passing your details out to a large database or sometimes even putting them on Facebook. If a company doesn’t have the cash to purchase themselves they are not cash buyers.
If you are currently dealing with another cash buying company and want a second opinion we would be more than happy to help. Please complete the form for a cash offer from us and we will get in touch to discuss your options.

If you are considering using a cash buying company who state on their website ‘we will buy your house for cash’ or we buy any home you need to thoroughly do your research into the company to ensure they are actual cash buyers. A genuine cash buying firm should enable you to sell your home in 7 days and should be able to provide you with proof of funds (usually a bank account statement showing that they do have the monies available to purchase your property).
Companies that will buy your house for cash are usually registered with the NAPB (National Association of Property Buyers); and checking on the NAPB register is a great way to verify if a company you are dealing with actually sell houses for cash or are simply an online estate agent.
Another great check you can do on a quick house sale company is to check if they are registered with the Property Ombudsman and abide by the code of practice for cash buying firms.
To sell your house for cash obviously means you will not get full market value for your property; however we buy homes for cash and can offer you a guaranteed sale of your property in 7 days or less. If you want to sell your house in 7 days and want to take the stress out of selling on the open market our cash buying service can offer your peace of mind that you are dealing with a genuine and serious house buyer.
One thing to bear in mind is that you may be used to estate agent valuing your home. An estate agent will often give you a valuation amount to suit their own needs – and to get you onboard as a client. This type of valuation is often not accurate and generally over valued to suit their needs. Generally speaking, the true value of a property is what someone is willing to pay for it. We buy houses companies as a rule use RICS (Royal Institute Of Chartered Surveyors) to value a property before they proceed to purchase your home. RICS are an independent body and can’t be manipulated to suit the cash buying companies needs. Therefore, you know you are getting an accurate and fair valuation.
If you do want to sell your home fast for cash the first point is to do an online assessment of what you think your home may be worth. A great starting point is to look at sold house prices in my street and see what has sold in the last 2-3 years in your street and neighbouring streets and what value they sold for. The second step is to visit the websites of the leading cash buying firms and try their free house valuation tools. Our own valuation tool is available here, and you are welcome to use it to get a free valuation from our cash team as well as get offers from different sale routes we can offer you.
