If you need to sell urgently you may have heard of "Sell House Fast" companies

But what are they, what does it mean & how does it work? We answer everything below!

Have you read about our sell house fast service? If you’re interested in finding out what we could potentially offer you then you might have some follow up questions first.

We’ve collated several of our most commonly asked questions from customer conversations about our core service and answered them for you below. If you do have a question that we haven’t yet answered, then don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll do our best to answer any queries you have!

Can I get an online quote for my house?

Unfortunately, this isn’t something we offer, but we feel there is a good reason for it. Using an online valuation likely won’t do your home justice, every home is completely different & the condition is completely different, and there’s no way an online tool can determine that without having a conversation.

With something as significant as a property, we feel giving you the chance of explaining your property in further detail helps making an offer which will be more accurate and less likely to be adjusted in the future.

Can I sell my house fast and rent it back?

This used to be an extremely popular scheme, in which, exactly as it says, you could sell your home and rent it back, allowing you to essentially release the equity. In 2012 it was investigated by the FCA and resulted in a temporary halt of the service – now companies that do this must be registered with the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority), so the service is now few and far between.

We do not offer this scheme, and if you are looking into doing this with a company, then you should be very cautious. The FCA’s finding where that in the majority of cases it was an unaffordable or unsuitable solution for most.

Can I sell my house fast for market value?

You can, of course, you can, if it’s in a desirable area and a good condition, the likelihood is you can sell it on the open market quickly. If the question is more aimed towards sell house fast companies such as ourselves, you might have seen some companies stating they offer full market value – but it’s simply isn’t true, it can’t be, or they wouldn’t be in business. All sell house fast companies need to buy properties at some form of discount.

Do sell house fast companies offer you full value?

No, a sell house fast company that buys properties for cash will not offer you full market value. They wouldn’t be a business if they did! Most house buying companies offer you between the 70-80% mark although that will really depend on your property, mostly its area and its condition.

How can I be sure the sell house fast company are legit?

You need to be careful before selling your home to a fast house buying company, you want to ensure that they are completely legit and not going to leave you in the lurch whilst buying something as expensive as your home.

To ensure the company are legitimate you should check that they are registered with The Property Ombudsman and The National Association of Property Buyers. The Ombudsman in particular is a scheme that provides customers and property agents with a dispute resolution service, adding a layer of protection.

How can you guarantee I can sell my house fast?

The only way to actually guarantee a quick sale is to go through a house buying company such as ourselves. The reason is, if you go on the market or through auction, you’re relying on the general public to buy your home – which can leave you open to your sale falling through.

We’ve been in business since 2012, buying hundreds of properties a year, and we’ve got a great track record in terms of happy customers and reviews. When you sell to us, we can guarantee the price we offer you is the price we get, subject to the independent RICs survey meeting the valuation.

How do you buy houses in 7 days?

The 7 secret herbs & spices!

We joke, it comes with experience and being a cash buyer, of course. We’re owned, managed and run by property experts who handle purchasing properties every day. We have forged some fantastic relationships with solicitors, coupled with our in house progression team, to ensure that we can purchase properties as quickly as possible.

Having our own cash reserves also means we aren’t restricted by having to get a mortgage or any form of approval on the properties that we purchase.

All of these aspects allow us to move extremely quickly and push through purchases within 7 days, and in truth, we have bought properties even quicker than that!

How quickly can you buy a house?

The previous question somewhat answers this, but to be more specific, we can buy in a timeframe that suits your needs. We can complete on your property as quickly, or as slowly as you would like – Just let us know!

Is it a good time to sell my house?

It really depends when you’re asking. If you’re talking about selling to a company like ourselves, we buy properties all year round, so it doesn’t really matter what time you choose to sell. That being said, if you choose to sell via the open market then you’ll find that Spring is generally the best time to sell your home – the worst time is winter or anytime when there are a lot of holidays like during the kid's summer holidays.

What are 30-day house specialists?

This is a slight twist and it’s something we offer. If you don’t require an urgent 7-day sale and can afford to wait a little bit more time, there are alternative options such as this 30 day house sale solution.

We offer this as we have a relationship with hundreds of investors and partners that may be interested in purchasing your home for a pre-agreed fee, but all we ask for in return is 30 days to get you matched up with the right ones, and in the meantime, we also often market your property on the open market as a backup, as an estate agent would.

What is the secret to a fast sale of a property?

To sell to us, of course!

Well, of course, we would love that, but there’s some truth in it. Sell house fast companies are likely the fastest way that you can sell your home and there’s no real secret to it! That being said, if you’re looking to speed up your open market sale, the two key things to a quick sale are to price the property right and stage it well.

What’s the quickest way to sell your home?

As we just eluded to, the quickest way to sell your home by some margin is to a sell house fast company such as ourselves. We quote that we can buy your house in as little as 7 days, but we have actually completed even quicker in the past.

Where in the UK can you buy houses?

We purchase actively homes across the whole of England & Wales. Although we are hoping to expand this in the near future.

Which is the best quick house sale company?

That’s subjective and we couldn’t possibly comment on it, being one ourselves. What we would say is to read through the reviews of any company that you’re looking to use and make sure they are registered with The Property Ombudsman & The National Association of Property Buyers, to add an extra layer of protection to the transaction.

Why would you want to use a sell house fast company?

As you may be aware, sell house fast companies offer below market value for your property, so why would you use them? Well, it’s in the name, they’re fast! Selling a house takes a long time, and in essence you’re sacrificing some of the equity in your property to save that time and be able to move on quicker. It’s perfect for certain situations where you need a guaranteed move date, such as if you’re moving for work purposes.
