What Is A Cash House Buyer?

Sell your house fast for cashCash House Buyers, like ourselves, are companies in the property sector that have funds to buy a house for cash and are able to buy a property outright without requiring a house repayments or selling another property first - BUT why would that thought cross your mind? Well, a cash offer can be more appealing to sellers because there are fewer hurdles and therefore the process is very quick. house repayments companies are one of the main causes of delays in any property sale process.

We're a specialist cash house buyer with our own funds and a multi-million-pound cash purchasing facility behind us, meaning we are able to buy any property, no matter the price. We are also part of The National Association of Property Buyers and The Property Ombudsman, so you know that we're a name that you can trust. 

You can find a cash house buyer by selling in the more traditional way, through estate agents and going on the open market, but the likelihood of you finding a buyer with enough cash to purchase your property outright is pretty slim, hence the rapid growth in the amount of house buying companies.

Reasons For A Quick House Sale

There are all sorts of reasons why you may need a sell my house for cash option. From situations that are out of your control to situations where you just need the convenience of a quick cash sale to move onto a new project or property, we help people across the UK to achieve just that. For more information on specific situations where we have helped people then click on the links below:

You might be inheriting a property but not prepared to take on the bills and council tax that come with that, or simply just want to offload the property quickly. Cash house buying services offer a good solution to this, due to the speed of the sale, especially in comparison to the open market. Probate can be pretty tricky too, but we've been in the industry a long time and can help you navigate through the whole process.

Dividing property in a divorce can be a tricky subject, and a lot of the time you just want to get it done and dusted quickly to cut ties. We understand that and a home buying company offers a perfect solution, we can be the intermediary between both parties and manage the sale making it as stress-free as it can be. 

If you've missed a few house repayments then you might be at risk of your house being repossessed by the bank. If the bank takes control, they will evict you from the property and look to sell the property as quickly as they can to offset the debt, often taking a very low offer. We can act quick enough to prevent this from happening, purchasing your home before the pending eviction. 

  • Traditional estate agents & the open market aren't working

Sometimes estate agents just aren't able to sell your property and it might have been sat on the property portal Rightmove and Zoopla for months with a little amount of interest and no serious bids. It might be worth investigating a quick house buying company like ourselves, you can get an offer for free and there's no obligation - without having to leave your estate agent, which can be troublesome due to estate agency contracts, so why not give it a go? 

  • Needing to move for work

You've landed your dream job, but you need to move across the country, or perhaps to another country altogether - the only problem is, you start in a month! Not to worry, you can sell your current property within 7 days to us, and leave for your new job without the extra hassle and stress of having to sell your property in the meantime.

  • Repairing a property chain

Another thing that our service lends itself really well to is repairing a broken property chain. What we mean by that is when you've sold your house, put a bid in on your dream home, and are just waiting for the process to complete... only to be told close to the completion date, your buyer has pulled out of the purchase! What do you do? Well, we can jump in and buy your property, repairing the chain and allowing you to still purchase that dream home.

How Much Will I Get For My Property?
