What’s our view on the property market?

The property world has been relatively unchanged for decades, with traditional selling routes like estate agencies taking centre stage, But, since the early 2000s, there has been a slow change in seller demand, which was only exacerbated by the pandemic. 

The markets have changed so that the high street, and therefore high street agencies, have begun to dwindle due to mortgage uncertainty, conveyancing waiting times and the rise of the digital age. 

House sellers are looking for quicker and more secure ways to sell their homes, away from the traditional estate agent. This is where we come in - we offer a seamless sell-house fast service, rated excellent by thousands of house sellers. 

As a leading cash-buying company, we have rebranded for several reasons, but our main driver is our commitment and ambition to create the UK’s go-to house selling solution.

Meet our Founders

As we look to the future and all that the 2020’s has to offer, we look to establish a solid foundation for sustained growth and drive prosperity for the company for years to come. But, none of this would have been possible without our Founders.

We asked our Founders, Jonathan Christie and Karl McArdle about what the future looks like here at The Property Buying Company, they said:

Jonathan Christie speaking about our vision for the future

He said, “We have taken significant steps to enhance our service offerings, having successfully established our in-house estate agency and dedicated sourcing branch for investors. These strategic additions have fortified our position in the housing industry, allowing us to provide comprehensive sale solutions to our clients.”

“However, our journey doesn’t stop here; we are committed to further elevating our capabilities and operations to better serve our customers.”

“Our ongoing mission is to create a seamless and efficient experience for our customers across all our branches. Whether they approach us with a residential property, a commercial office building, or a piece of land, we are dedicated to tailoring our services to meet their needs.” 

“Regardless of whether they are looking for a sell house fast service or seeking a specific price point, we are fully prepared to accommodate their preferences.” 

“One of the challenges we’ve identified in the current housing market is the scarcity of an all-encompassing property sale solution. We aspire to bridge this gap and become the go-to destination for all property-related needs.” 

“Our goal is to provide a one-stop-shop where customers can trust us to handle every aspect of their property transaction.”

“In essence, we are not just in the business of selling properties; we are in the business of fulfilling our customers’ housing needs. Our dedication to streamlining our processes and offering tailored solutions makes us the ultimate destination for those seeking a seamless, hassle-free property transaction experience.”

“We look forward to continuing our journey of growth, innovation, creativity and compassion in the housing market to better service our customers.”

Karl McArdle speaking about our position in the housing market

We’ve done a fantastic job of creating a brand that sets the tone within our sector, I believe it’s something that none of our competitors have done – we’ve put ourselves ahead of the rest."

"Our new brand instils confidence into our customers that we are the trusted, genuine cash buyer and that our values will call out any problems within the property industry."

"We will continue to create a space for our customers to be able to sell their house fast, listening to their feedback and using this to set a very high standard for any of our competitors to try and follow."

Our brand

We understand that selling your property can be a stressful experience, especially if you need a quick sale, which is why we pride ourselves on offering a professional and reliable service from an experienced and understanding team.

Throughout the years, we have gone through a lot of business change, and we felt the previous brand did not reflect who we are now – with over 60% of our team feeling the previous branding did not reflect who we were as a company. 

After all, we all believe that The Property Buying Company is more than just a cash buyer, we have energetic aspirations for growth, and as an extension of this, we have a diversified offering. 

In 2018, we launched our online estate agency in order to offer a way for some of our customers to sell their property at full market value, without all the fees associated with high street estate agencies. 

Then in 2020, as the world grappled with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, our investment property sourcing branch was born, offering investors tailored property opportunities. 

Our story began 12 years ago, and it is now entering a thrilling new chapter, marked by innovation, empowerment and an unwavering commitment to redefine how cash buying is perceived and experienced as we look to become the UK’s leading house selling solution
