I Want To Sell My House Quickly – What Are The Different Methods?

Traditionally if you were looking to sell your house, an estate agent would be your first port of call. However as the industry develops this tradition is being broken, giving you more options when you come to sell – especially if you want to sell your house fast! Question is, which one is right for you? And which is the fastest way to sell your house?

  • The Open Market

    Choose to sell your house using this route and you’ll most likely be going through an estate agent. The 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 fast.

    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!

    The sale will then go through. It’s at this time the estate agent will receive their commission – usually at least 1% of your sale price!


  • Auctions

    If you’ve 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 then this could work in the seller’s favour.

    At most 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 sale price. 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 your reserve price.


  • Part Exchange

    If you’re buying a new build your developer may also give you the opportunity to sell your house quickly 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 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.


  • Home equity release schemes

    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:

    • Life-time mortgage – With this you’ll receive a lump sum from your provider which is secured against your property. You can then either pay this off or accumulate the interest, providing the value of your house would cover the costs when you die.
    • Home reversion - A reversion provider buys either all, or part of your property, but will not have access to the property until you die. You can continue to live there rent-free. Usually, the lump sum you receive is no more than 60% of the property’s market value.
  •  

  • Raffle your property
    This usual way of securing a fast house sale has been a hot topic with the press. To do so, a homeowner would sell raffle tickets with the main prize being their property. While this sounds tempting, especially if it gets your house some good publicity, it’s a risky strategy that can see you selling significantly below market value.

  • Quick cash sale companies (A convenient way to "sell house fast")
    If you’re here to work out how to sell your house quickly, opting for a ‘Sell House Fast’ company could be a good choice. Companies that buy property quickly typically offer you cash, even though their offer will be below the market value. If you’re need to sell your property fast because of chain break, relationship breakdown or emigration, these companies tend to be your best bet, as the majority can complete on a purchase in just 7-days!

Sell House Fast’ Companies VS The Open Market

The first question you’ll likely ask if you’re looking to ‘sell house fast for cash’ is the amount you achieve for your property in comparison to the more traditional route via the open market.

At first glance it would look like the open market is the way to go. After all, ‘Sell House Fast’ companies offer you below the market value, so they can’t possibly be as good value, right? Not necessarily.

The main advantage a ‘Sell House Fast’ company has over the open market is time, which if you’ve got a house to run, can quickly level the playing field.


Sale Process Estate Agent (9 Months) Sell House Fast For Cash (7 Days)
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
 
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.

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 fast” then the open market is likely not the best route.

Your options Average sale length Typical cost to you
The Property Buying Company 2-3 weeks £0.00
Other House Buying Companies 2-10 weeks £1000
Property Auction 6-10 weeks £2500-£5000
Online Estate Agents 16-52 weeks £1000 (upfront) - £5000
Estate Agents 16-52 weeks £5000

How To Sell My House Fast: Our Top Tips

If you’re looking to sell your house fast then we’d advise you don’t want to make the mistake of investing too much of your time and money. Saying that, there are a variety of ways in which you can sell your house faster without spending a fortune. Here’s just a few to consider…

  • Cut the lawn and tidy that garden – Your garden is typically the first thing people see – it’s what governs your curb appeal – so if you’re thinking ‘I need to sell my house fast’, this is one of the first things you should attend to.
  • Fill in or paint over any superficial cracks – Cracks are code for trouble in the eyes of a buyer, so masking any superficial ones is an easy way to make your house show better. But there’s a reason we say superficial cracks – trying to disguise subsidence with Pollyfilla is a sure way to come across as an untrustworthy seller.
  • Wash your windows and let in some air – Especially in the warmer months, airing your house and cleaning the windows can be an easy way to keep it smelling fresh and let in valuable light.
  • De-clutter. De-clutter. De-clutter – Clutter is not attractive, so get rid of it. The more space you have on show, the more potential there is for buyers to see and the higher the chance you’ll sell your house fast.


Use the tips above and you may achieve a slightly better price from ‘Sell House Fast’ companies like us. Think of our Acquisitions Mangers as you would a buyer. They’re looking for a tidy, functional space that’s well cared for and doesn’t need much work - house clearances and garden services cost us money. These rules would also apply if you were looking to get a strong valuation and try to sell your house fast through an estate agent.

If major structural issues (subsidence, rising damp etc.) are the reason you’re looking 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 cash offer.

Remember – we buy ANY property, in ANY condition and ANY location, so rest assured we won't back out.

’I want to sell my house fast, help!’ No worries, we’ll buy it whatever the condition…

Ask Team TPBC: Our Common FAQs

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 burning query about our ‘Sell House Fast’ service, these common FAQs may help you out…

Q: Why should I sell my house fast for cash 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 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 fast 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 ‘Sell House Fast’ service – what we offer is what you’ll receive.

Q: How quickly can I sell my house fast 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 ‘Sell House Fast’ 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.
