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. We take a look at property cash buyers in a little more detail below.

What Is A Cash House Buyer?

Essentially a cash house buyer is someone who has cash at the ready and is able to buy a property outright without requiring a mortgage or selling another property first. 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.

How Our Cash For House Buying Process Works

If you want a quick house sale and receive a fair cash sum then the process couldn’t be simpler:

  1. Visit our website and pop your postcode in when prompted
  2. You’ll receive an email with an estimate valuation based on searches within your area
  3. We’ll call you to find out more about your property and whether you’re happy to proceed
  4. We’ll then book in a home visit from one of our Acquisition Managers who will look at your home, make note of any unique features or potential problems and chat to you about your situation and reason for selling
  5. If you’re happy with the final valuation then we’ll commission a RICS survey to be completed by a professional
  6. You’ll receive a cash sum in your bank account within a matter of weeks

Benefits Of Selling To A Property Cash Buyer

If you want or need to sell your property quickly, with minimal hassle, then a quick property cash buyer could be the right route for you. Some of the benefits include:

  1. They can work to a timescale that suits you, so no more longing questions around how long does a house sale take – whether you need to complete in a few days or a few weeks, quick property cash buyers will work closely with you to understand your situation and any urgency involved so you can move on to your next project or property fast
  2. There is no chain – due to being cash property buyers there is no chance that the sale could fall through. There is no one else within the chain meaning you’re secure in the knowledge that you don’t have to wait for any other sale to go ahead before your property is sold
  3. The process is straight forward – quick cash buyers make the process smooth from start to finish. There’s no chain, as previously mentioned and they will work quickly and efficiently to take ownership of your property and get the money to you in far less time than a traditional estate agent can
  4. You don’t have to worry about legal fees – any fees associated with selling your property will be covered by a quick cash buyer. There should be no hidden charges so whatever your valuation – that’s the amount you’ll receive
  5. Any property or condition – quick property cash buyers will buy any property, in any condition so, even if you have a problem property, you can still get a fair cash sum for your property

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.

Abbie wills was absolutely amazing! Throughout a journey of ups and downs she has been the one to be chasing both sides of solicitors making sure we had a quick sale. Customer service Abbie has provided has been absolutely outstanding. Would recommend highly.

Happy customer

Would highly recommend The Property Buying company if your looking for a quick sale hassle free. My property is complex because it only holds a short lease & because of this it wouldn't sell for the market value & only to a cash buyer. The property Buying Company have helped to change my world by purchasing it from me at obviously a much lower price than it would be if the lease had been longer but now I am able to purchase another property and move on. Elie has gone the extra mile in my opionion... he has worked so very hard to help me not only with the sale of my property but even with negotiating with the seller's of the property I am now hoping to buy! That's what I call great customer service!! Big thank you to Daniel and Charlotte too for their professional friendly customer service.

Never heard of this company before but l have to say that the professionalism was superb from start to finish. Initially Jessica was my first port of call and again she was very helpful indeed. Our main contact after Jessica was Abbie Wills who was both extremely helpful,understanding and gave fantastic customer service deserves a pay rise.What a lovely lady.
