Selling a property? We'll buy your house in 7 days! No Stress, no hassle & a no-obligation offer on your property…
Selling your house is a big decision, we appreciate that! So we've provided an in-depth overview of what methods you have available, and a complete breakdown of our Sell House Fast service and our expert opinions and hopefully get you started on a cash sale. This article is rather long, so if you are interested in a specific section you can use the table of contents below:
If you were looking to sell your house, a traditional estate agent would be your first port of call. However as the property industry develops this tradition is being broken, giving you more options when you come to sell – especially if you're selling your home urgently, we are able to provide a solution! Question is, which one is right for you? And which is the fastest way to sell your house? It might be time you look further than the traditional estate agent.
Choose to sell your house using this route and you’ll most likely be going through an estate agent. The traditional estate agent will advertise your property and market it to their pool of potential buyers – the better connected your agent, the more likely you’ll sell your house.
Buyers then submit offers based on what they think it’s worth (typically less than your asking price). Once you accept an offer, a memorandum of sale is drawn up. From here both buyer and seller should instruct solicitors to ensure all the legal side of the sale is tied up correctly – this process can take time and if you're wanting to sell your property fast or get a guaranteed sale, this probably isn't the right option for you!
The sale will then go through. It’s at this time the estate agent fees will come in and they receive their commission – usually at least 1% of your sold price!
A common alternative to an estate agent if you have a problem property, selling your house fast at auction can be beneficial. This could be anything from a property with structural damage or a property that’s tenanted. You tend to find auction properties priced below their market value (BMV), but if a bidding war occurs when you're selling your home, then this could work in the seller’s favour.
At most property auctions, the buyer will be required to put down a 10% deposit immediately after the sale and have 28 days to pay the remaining 90% of the price of the sale. Although at some auctions buyers pay a non-refundable reservation fee and have 28 days to exchange contracts, plus an additional 28 days to complete. That’s if you meet the reserve price you set before the auction.
If you’re buying a new build property your developer may also give you the opportunity to sell your house fast through their part exchange scheme. Do so and they’ll value your property, taking into consideration any defects – their offer will usually come in at around 65-70% of the property market value. The price you pay for letting a developer take the hassle off your hands. Although if you choose this method you may be restricted to what type of property you can buy. Many choose this option of property sale because it's quick, but they tend to offer a lesser value than genuine cash home buyers like ourselves.
If you’ve invested a decent amount into your mortgage and are aged between 55 - 65, then you could release some of that without having to sell your house. Whether you want to release some cash to fund a holiday home or just need a bit of extra money for retirement, an equity release scheme could be a good option. We’d always advise you should seek specialist advice and weigh up the risk before you do so.
Equity release schemes come in two types:
Want to sell your home quickly? Get a free CASH offer from a sell house fast service like ours…
When you want to sell a property quickly the first question you’ll likely ask if you’re looking to take advantage of a Sell House Fast service like ours is exactly what amount you'll achieve for your property in comparison to the more traditional route, like using an estate agent and going on the open market through popular property portals.
At first glance, it would look like the open property market is the way to go. After all, we're honest and upfront about the fact our cash offer will be below the market value, so they can’t possibly be as good value, right? Not necessarily, it's still worth exploring a different selling route.
The main advantage of choosing us or any home buying company, over the open market is time, which if you’ve got a house to run, can quickly level the playing field - we'll even make an cash offer within 24 hours, and you can sell your home within days.
|Sale Process||Traditional Estate Agent (9 Months)||Our Cash Buying Service (7 Days)|
|Property market value (Advertised Price)||£100,000||£80,000|
|Offer accepted (Typical 5% Discount)||£95,000||£80,000|
|Post survey negotiation||£92,500||£80,000|
|Estate agent (£92,500 at 2% + VAT)||£90,280||£80,000|
|Solicitor fees (£1000 + VAT = £1200)||£89,080||£80,000|
|Mortgage payments (£75K repayment at 5% PA = £563 pcm or £5067 for 9 Months)||£84,017||£80,000|
|Utility bills and Council Tax (£375 x 9 months)||£80,642||£80,000|
|Property clearance (skip & deep clean at £750)||£79,892||£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.
Yet despite the figures, you’re still likely to opt for an estate agent when selling your property. Why? Because it’s traditionally how it’s done, even though a large proportion of agents have a habit of overvaluing. All of which slows your property sale down and has you forced to reduce the price to get good interest. And even then you’ve got viewings and a whole load of negotiating to do.
If you’re reading this thinking, “I need to sell my house quickly” then the open market is likely not the best route.

Now you might be thinking what is the value of my property to a company like us. If a Sell House Fast service sounds attractive, then here’s how to get started and with our easy to use enquiry form…
Once you’ve agreed you’re happy with our initial valuation, we’ll then arrange for you to meet with one of our Acquisitions Managers. During the meeting, they’ll give your property the once over in person, flag up any issues and get to know more about you and your situation. It’s from their expertise that we’ll determine our final valuation which, if you accept, will lead to a RICS survey and valuation before completion. Proof you can sell the property in under 7 days!
If you’re needing to sell your house then we’d advise you don’t want to make the mistake of investing too much of your time and money into home improvements. Saying that there are a variety of ways in which you can sell your house quickly without spending a fortune. Here’s just a few to consider whether you're using a house sale company or estate agents when looking at selling your property…
Use the tips above and you may achieve a slightly better price from home buying companies like ourselves. Think of our Acquisitions Managers as you would a buyer. They’re looking for a tidy, functional space that’s well cared for and doesn’t need much workhouse clearances and garden services to cost us money. These rules would also apply if you were looking to get a strong valuation and try to sell your house through an estate agent.
If major structural issues (subsidence, rising damp etc.) are the reason you’re needing to sell your house quickly, then you can discuss these with our Acquisitions Manager, although we would ask you to disclose details like this when you initially apply for your free cash offer.
Remember – we buy ANY property, in ANY condition and ANY location, so rest assured we won't back out - just read our testimonials!

It’s no secret that selling your house is daunting, which is why we make it our mission to get you sold, exchanged and completed in as little as 7 days. But if you’ve still got a burning query about our we buy any house service, these common FAQs may help you out…
Q: Why should I sell my house to you instead of using my local estate agent?
Agents are the traditional way to sell a house, but we’d question whether they’re the best. Here’s just a couple of reasons why quick house sale companies like us could be a better option…
Agents charge you a fee, typically 1% of your house price. With us, we charge you nothing, plus we pay all your legal fees!
Selling through an agent doesn’t guarantee you a completion date or fit it around your timescale. For fast cash property buyers like us, this isn’t an issue.
Agents can’t predict the housing market or what price you’ll achieve. Whereas we can guarantee your quick sale price from the offset.
Q: How’s your property valuation work?
Just like your agent, we use a variety of online tools to research your local market and offer our initial house valuation. But, because we do recognise each property is unique if you take us up on our cash offer for your home, we will send one of our Acquisitions Managers round to view in person. Here they’ll confirm the property’s value or make note of any issues that may affect it. We will then put forth our final offer based on their appraisal.
Q: If I sell my house to TPBC, am I liable to pay any fees or charges?
No – all your legal fees are included! There’s no hidden charges or catches to our quick sale service – what we offer is what you’ll receive.
Q: How quickly can I sell my house for cash if I use The Property Buying Company?
As little as 7 days, although the typical sale takes 2-3 weeks. If you’ve got a specific timescale you’re looking to adhere to, just let us know.
Q: Do I require a solicitor if I choose your service?
We source you a solicitor ourselves, although if you already have someone in mind you’re more than welcome to appoint them to act on your behalf.
