What is a quick house sale? A quick house sale is one which completes quicker than the average house sale time, generally we aim to buy your house in as little as 7 days but some other quick sale methods can range to around 6 weeks. There are multiple options in order to be able to get a quick house sale, such as selling to a quick house sale company, through auction or a part-exchange scheme.

A quick house sale company, like us, offer you the chance to sell your house fast, without having to pay any fees. There are two methods as to how we can get you a quick house sale; we will either buy your property directly using our own cash reserves or we will quickly find you a third-party buyer.

We're one of those property cash buyers that you can trust, which is why we're proud members of the National Association of Property Buyers & The Property Ombudsman. Read our reviews on Trustpilot if you don’t believe us – we’ve got hundreds that back this up!

I Want A Quick House Sale – What Are My Options?

When looking for a quick house sale, you might want to steer away from the traditional route of finding an estate agent to sell your property. There are multiple roads for you to go down in order to achieve a quick house sale - all you need to do is decide which is right for you!

  • Auction – Auction could be a good option for you to achieve a quick house sale, especially if your property is considered one which will be difficult to sell. For example, if your property requires lots of work, has a short lease or has sitting tenants, auction could be the right option for you. Generally, at auction, your property will be priced below its market value to attract more attention, which could lead to a bidding war. When the hammer comes down on a deal, contracts are exchanged, and the buyer will put down a 10% deposit. The buyer then has 20 to 28 days to complete. This of course depends on if the reservation price for your property is met. Buyers are also still able to pull out and forfeit their 10% deposit.
  • Part Exchange Scheme – If you’re buying a new build, your developer may give you the option of a part exchange scheme in order to achieve a quick house sale. Should you choose this option, the developer will organise for two individual estate agents to value your property and you will be made an offer based on these valuations. It’s worth bearing in mind that the estate agents will be told to make a valuation based on the selling price of a property rather than the asking price and taking into account all the defects of the property, meaning the offer for your house can often come in significantly below the market value, sometimes even 65-70% of the market value.
  • Open Market – If this is the route you choose to go down you will likely be enlisting an estate agent to market your property. The estate agent will advertise your property to lots of potential buyers, who may view your property and if interested make an offer on what they think it’s worth. Most houses will sell for below the asking price. It’s worth bearing in mind that estate agents will also take a commission, generally 1% of the sold price. Also, choosing this option doesn’t give a guaranteed buyer and whether you get a quick house sale will depend on how well connected your estate agent is.
  • Raffling your property – This is a slightly unusual method to get a quick house sale and may be unfamiliar to you. The process normally entails the homeowner selling raffle tickets, with the prize being their property. This different method may get you a quick house sale but is a risky strategy which could result in your property selling for significantly below the market value.
  • Quick House Sale Companies – Another method to help you get a quick house sale. These companies generally make you a cash offer, slightly below the market value. They offer a guaranteed buyer, and the majority of these companies can complete in as little as 7 days or work the timescales to suit you.


Quick House Sale Companies vs Open Market

When thinking about getting a quick house sale, you’ll want to compare the different processes in order to get you the best deal.

On first thought, the traditional route of the open market may seem the best way to get the best price, as a quick house sale company gives you a below market value offer, so you should rule them out, right? This isn’t necessarily true.

Believe it or not, you may end up getting MORE from a quick cash house buyer than you would from the open market!

Let’s look at the numbers….

Process Breakdown Estate Agent (9 Months) Quick House Sale Company (7 Days)
Properties Market Value £100,000 £100,000
Offer Example £95,000 £80,000
RICs Survey Negotiations £92,500 £80,000
Estate Agency Fees (Typical) £90,280 £80,000
Solicitor Costs £89,080 £80,000
Estimated Repayments For Mortgage £84,017 £80,000
Estimated Bills & Tax £80,642 £80,000
Clearing The Property £79,892 £80,000
 
Final Price
£79,892
Final Price
£80,000

Figures shown are based on a typical advertised property price of £100,000 which has come back with a RICS valuation of no less than £100,000, and the legal work and searches have shown that there are no issues concerning the property or its title. We would be able to pay up to 80% of the valuation if the property is in 'grade A' condition, of standard construction and is located in an area with average or above market conditions.

Our Quick House Sale Process

At The Property Buying Company, we want to give you a straight forward quick house sale and being a cash buyer of property makes this easy. Wondering how quickly a house sale can complete? Well, we can buy your house for cash in as little as 7 days. The process won’t cost you a penny, as we cover all the costs, including the legal fees.

If a quick house sale is what you’re interested in, here’s how you can get on board:

  • Enter your postcode at the top of our ‘get an offer’ page
  • Select your property address
  • Tell us the property type
  • Specify the amount of bedrooms
  • Enter your name, contact number and email
  • A member of our team will reach out to discuss your home, provide you with an initial valuation and talk you through selling to a cash house buyer, to help you achieve a quick house sale.


Once you’re happy and have agreed with our initial valuation, we then arrange for one of our Acquisitions Managers to come meet you at your property. During this meeting, they’ll give your property a look over, flag up any issues and get to know you and more about your situation. After this, we’re able to then determine our final valuation which, should you accept, will mean we can then organise a RICS survey before completion.

You may be thinking this doesn’t sound like a quick house sale, but all of this is possible within just 7 days!

Top Tips On How To Get A Quick House Sale

If you want to get a quick house sale, it’s a good idea to present your house in the best condition you can. Having said this, if you’re trying to sell your house you don’t want to be spending lots of money on it. We’ve got a list of tips and tricks which won’t cost you a fortune but will help present your property in the best light…

  • DE-CLUTTER – Clutter does not show a house in a good light. The more clutter = the less space on show = the smaller your house will look, making it less attractive as it looks to have less potential.
  • Give it a fresh coat of paint – Covering any cracks or marks on walls can make your house show so much better!
  • Tidy up the outside – Whether that be mowing the lawn, potting some plants or cutting back bushes, these simple steps will up your houses’ ‘curb appeal’, helping your house look more attractive

Following these steps may help you get a better price offer from a quick house sale company like us. Our Acquisition Manager will be viewing your house through a ‘buyer’s eyes’ and so the more attractive it looks, the more likely you’re going to get a higher valuation.

If your property has major structural issues and these are part of the reason you’re looking for a quick house sale, then you can discuss this with our Acquisitions Manager (although we would prefer if you inform us of this when you first apply for a cash offer.)

What Will Our Cash Offer Be In Return For A Quick House Sale?

To us as a quick cash house buyer, property sales are about speed and efficiency, which is why we can buy your house in as little as 7 days.

The price we give you reflects our speed, so generally our offer will come in around 80-85% of the market value. Having said this, this does depend on the situation.

The location, type of property, condition of property etc will all contribute to the offer we give you. If your house is perfectly looked after, our offer could be higher than this, but on the flip side if the house looks a bit of a mess, then our offer may be lower. We react to your property in the same way a buyer on the open market would.

Frequently Asked Questions

Selling a house is a big deal, we know that which is why we aim to get you from 0 to completed in as little as 7 days.

If you still have a burning question about our quick house sale service, these common FAQs may help…

Q: Why should I sell my house fast for cash instead of using my local estate agent?

A: Agents are the more traditional route to sell your house, but this doesn’t mean they’re the best option for you.

Agents will charge you a commission fee, which is generally around 1% of the sale price. With our service, we don’t charge you anything AND we pay all your legal fees!

Selling through an agent doesn’t allow you to work the completion date around your timescales, whereas we’re happy to work around you.

An agent also can’t predict what the housing market will be like, meaning your house could sit on the market for months and months. During this time, the agent could also encourage you to take multiple price reductions, meaning there’s no guarantee on the price you’ll get. Whereas with us, the sale price is guaranteed from the start – what you’re offered is what you’ll get!

Q: How does your property valuation work?

A: Similar to an estate agent, we use a variety of online tools to research the housing market local to you in order to give you an initial house valuation. However, we know every property is unique and should you choose to accept our cash offer, we will send one of our Acquisitions Managers to your property to view it in person. On this visit, they will be able to confirm the property’s value, meaning we can then put forward our final cash offer.

Q: If I sell my house fast to TPBC, am I liable to pay any fees or charges?

A: No – all fees are included! There are no hidden catches to our quick house sale service, the offer you accept is what you’ll receive in your bank.

Q: How quickly can I sell my house fast for cash if I use The Property Buying Company?

A: Our sales can be in as little as 7 days, with our average time being between 2-3 weeks. Having said this, if you have a timescale in mind, just let us know and we will work around you!

Q: Do I require a solicitor if I choose your ‘Quick House Sale’ service?

A: We source you a solicitor ourselves, but if you have someone in mind, you’re more than welcome to appoint them to act on your behalf.
