Sell House Fast? How Quick Can You Sell With Ready Steady Sell!


How Can I Sell My House Fast?

There are many ways you can achieve a fast house sale, it really depends on the price you are willing to accept. As a rule, a cash buying company like Ready Steady Sell will offer you around 85% of market value in exchange for the ability to sell house fast. Cash buying companies like Ready Steady Sell are a business, with staff, and overheads; and just like any business we need to make a profit somehow. If you have seen other cash buying companies offering to buy your house for 100% market value, please take our advice that no firm will ever be able to pay you 100% value for your property. Like any other ‘trading’ business, selling your mobile phone or your car, we expect you to discount on the value of your home for us to sign a cheque!

What are my options to sell my house fast?

There are four ways in which you can sell your property quickly. The first and fastest way is to sell your house fast for cash.

Selling Fast For Cash

Selling for cash to an investor cuts out estate agents, removes the need for lengthy chains, eradicates the mortgage process and the need for unmotivated buyers. A cash buyer will invest their own personal funds or business funds into the purchase of your home, meaning they will not need to apply for a mortgage. A cash buying firm like Ready Steady Sell should in fact be able to supply you with a copy of proof of funds for the purchase of your home. If an online firm that advertises as a cash buyer claims to be able to purchase for cash – make sure you ask for this document for your own peace of mind.

Some cash buying agencies are in fact not ‘cash buyers’ at all, and merely make this statement on their websites to fool you into thinking you can achieve a fast house sale.

A cash property purchase should be complete in as little as 7 – 10 days, and this is the area we specialise in as a company. We have a fund of c£16m to spend on UK property regardless of the location or condition and can help you sell your house quickly and efficiently in a timeframe that suits you.

The downside to a cash sale of your home is that you will need to offer a substantial discount. The expected discount for most cash buying companies including Ready Steady Sell is around the 85% of market value.

“Should I use a Quick House Sale company to buy my house for cash?”

Finding a genuine cash buyer on the open market could prove challenging therefore the most convenient route to selling your house fast for cash is to use a cash buying firm – however they do come with their risks and downfalls.

Aside from the issue of a reduced price for your home; many cash buying firms have been criticised in recent years for dramatically reducing the offer they make for your home at the very last minute. Leaving you with the option of either starting the entire sale process again or accepting.

At Ready Steady Sell we are fully transparent with you about our service. If you want a cash offer and want us to buy your home from you in 7 – 10 days; with cash that our cash buying department has in hand – you would be looking at an offer that is approximately 25% below market value.

We also can truthfully state that we will never reduce offers at the minute. The way we work is:-

  1. We give you an indicative cash offer online/over the phone.
  2. We send out an independent valuation expert to determine the value of your home. This will be a RICS surveyor, completely independent to our company and legally obliged to follow a certain code of conduct.
  3. Based on this valuation we give you a firm and final offer. You either accept or walk away.

If you do accept our cash offer at this point, then you are on your way to a guaranteed house sale within 7 – 10 days.

Assisted Sale Model

Another route to selling your house fast is to use an assisted sale model. Although not as quick an option as a cash purchase, and without the rock-solid guarantee that comes with a cash buyer; an assisted sale can be a very good option for someone that has a few months to sell and wants to get a better price than they would selling for cash.

An assisted sale works by us agreeing a price for your home in the first instance, then going out and aggressively trying to find you a buyer. We have a database of investors that are always looking for investment or buy to let property to add to their portfolio and if your home meet’s their criteria we should be able to sell this way for you.

The downsides that come with an assisted sale are that we aren’t always able to guarantee things will go smoothly. The reason being is we are dealing with third parties who are out of our control. We also must introduce mortgage applications – which at present are very difficult to obtain as an investor. We also need to add in the fact that the buyer may change his mind and pull out.

Selling At Auction

To sell your house at auction comes with some risk. You risk paying a fee just to enter some auctions, and you risk not finding a buyer. It is very important that you read and fully understand the terms and conditions offered by the mortgage company you are dealing with, so you know what to expect.

We work closely with Auction House one of the UK’s biggest property auction companies and we pass some vendors across to them who are specifically looking for an auction sale of their homes.

An auction sale can be quick, and it can obtain you a good price – however you need to bear in mind that there is never any guarantees. You also need to recognise that even if you get a buyer on the day of your auction, they will need to get a mortgage, and solicitors and finance – and this all takes time. If it is a very quick sale you are looking for and want to sell house fast, the previous two options are better for you.

Property owners looking to sell at auction are usually looking to sell house fast, and the guarantee of a sale in a certain time frame. This guarantee doesn’t really work as the buyer only has to pay 10% of the overall price to the auction house and could still fail mortgage applications.

What Are The Best Way’s To Sell My House Fast?

Prior to the internet a typical estate agent sale was really the only way people bought and sold property. This didn’t really make way for anyone looking to sell their house fast with most estate agents taking up to 6 months for properties to sell.
Now if speed is the main criteria for a property sale; customers can opt to sell house fast with a cash property buying firm to purchase the property for cash. The whole process can usually be tied up in 7 days. A quick house sale using this method doesn’t suit everyone, however we have highlighted some of the main reasons our customers choose to sell house fast.

Why do people typically choose to sell house fast for cash?

Divorce or relationship breakdown

When you are in a relationship and you won property jointly, chances are that you may have to give up the property in the event that you are faced with a separation or divorce. This way, you can be able to share the money from the sale and go separate ways. In this case, selling your property through a quick house sale will not only reduce stress associated with the rather sensitive situation but also bring a quick and viable solution.


More and more people are relocating for different reasons such as job losses and job promotions. Whatever the case, you may need to sell your property within a short time and a quick house sale will be inevitable. This will help you to easily move to where business need is rife or jobs are available. Furthermore, you will not have to wait for the buyer to come along as quick house sale companies are usually in a position to purchase property fast so that you have money in your account in a matter of days.

Health concerns

If you are suffering from certain illnesses for an extended period, you may be financially drained in which case you may want to consider selling your property fast. This is because, you may also be unable to work so you do not have a steady income stream. A quick house sale may also be ideal if you are looking to go into private care and treatment and you do not have sufficient.

Repossession worries

This is one of the leading reasons why most people opt for a quick house sale. Selling your house fast may be the only way you can avoid repossession.


If you have lost those who are close to you and cannot move on as you have their memories in every corner of the home, the best solution may be to sell it. This will ensure that you make the grieving process bearable and a quick house sale will further reduce the agony of having to wait for a prospective buyer and showing people around the property.

A quick house sale is an excellent way of selling property for cash within a short time. You are not only guaranteed of having the cash within a matter of days but also finding a solution to other pending issues that require money.
