What is a cash house buyer?

Cash 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 mortgage 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. 

Mortgage 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. When looking for cash for my house service, you will find both individual and company based cash house buyers. 

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.

Which is why you should choose an experienced and highly rated cash buyers for houses company like ourselves!
