Sell Your House For Cash
People who need to sell a property quickly are increasingly using quick cash buyers.
Although there is definitely still a place for the traditional estate agent, some people are finding that this route takes too long and their needs require them to find a quick house sale that's hassle free. We take a look at genuine cash buyers in a little more detail below.
Essentially a cash house buyer is someone who has cash funds at the ready and is able to buy a property outright without requiring a mortgage or selling another property first, allowing you to sell your house fast. Specialist property cash buyers like The Property Buying Company have investors who enable them to have a cash sum available whenever someone requires a quick sale of their property. If you choose to use a quick cash buyer when selling your property, make sure you do the relevant research first because not all are what they seem. Make sure they are regulated by The Property Ombudsman and that all legal fees are included so you don’t get hit with a large bill at a later date.
If you want a fast house sale and receive a fair cash sum then the process couldn’t be simpler:

There are all sorts of reasons why you may need a quick house sale. 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.

Although we can’t offer you the full price for your property, we will offer to buy your house at a fair price. Generally, this is up to 80% of the market value of your property, but this is subject to a house valuation being carried out by one of our Acquisition Managers as well as a RICS survey. These enable us to take into consideration any unique features that your property possesses, as well as any potential issues.
We have been known to complete in as little as 24hrs, however, we are able to work to a timescale that suits you, whether this be a few days or a few weeks. Generally we complete most purchases within 4 weeks from the time you initially contact us to the completion date.
We buy properties of all shapes and sizes and in any condition. From burnt-out houses and non-standard constructions through to mansions and penthouses, there’s no limit to what we can take on. The most common properties we buy are:
No, as part of our service we cover all the costs for you, you don't have to pay a single penny, the cash offer we provide you with is exactly what you will get. Provided that you go with our recommended solicitors we even cover that cost, these are also solicitors which we know operate quickly. We also pay for a RICS survey on the house & will even cover the cost of probate if required. Even if for any reason we are unable to complete on the purchase of your property we'll still cover the bill for any expenses there have been during the process.
"Are cash buyers legit?", a question we see all the time. We can't speak for everyone but we can let you know that we are definitely legitimate, or we wouldn't have been in business since 2012 and wouldn't have the hundreds great reviews we do!
There's a lot of negative press around cash buyers with many people warning of scams in the industry. We can assure you we are not one of these companies, we are part of The Property Ombudsman (TPO) & The National Association of Property Buyers (NAPB) meaning that we have to adhere to certain codes of practice and operate to the highest standards. We always do what is right by our customers and are upfront and honest throughout the whole process, you don't just have to take our word for it though, you can check out our reviews on TrustPilot & Reviews.co.uk.
We are regulated by The Property Ombudsman and the National Association of Property Buyers which means we make sure our customers are protected at every stage of the buying process. We always endeavour to build a rapport with our customers and we’ll only ever allocate one agent to a case which means you’ll always have a point of contact that you’ll recognise. This is one of many reasons why we get some amazing reviews online from our customers.

Independent reviews of our service from reviews.co.uk
Whilst we weren’t able to complete a sale for different reasons the service was excellent! Quick response; no sales pressure; very polite and informative! Would like to think we could do business in the future! Highly recommend! Thank you!
This firm started off with good intentions made a poor offer but we could have work with this, filled all forms from the solicitor sent off all Id they wanted two weeks later reduced there offer to a steal the property that was valued at £450.000 they offered £240.000 very disappointing beware of this firm
Day light robbery, should be thoroughly ashamed at attempt to steal my home for a pittance, preying on people who are vulnerable, the offer made was derisory and way off the mark of local valuations
Nick was very helpful and friendly. He explained the process in details. I am still in process of selling and so far I feel really comfortable knowing I can count on Nick. I wish every service I am receiving in life would be like that. Definitely I would recommend.
really help us alot
