We go through our service in great detail, explaining exactly what we pay

And more importantly why we pay it, and whether it's a service that's right for you

Have you read about our sell house fast service? If you are aware of it, you’ll know that we’re transparent about the fact that we don’t offer you full market value for your property, and in return, we provide a quick sale in as little as 7 days.

We know it’s not for everyone, as some people don’t have the equity to be able to accept the offer, or simply don’t want to. If you need a quicker sale than the traditional method can give, however, it might be a good option for you.

In this article, we go into a bit more detail about what exactly a sell house fast company is, what we pay and all the ins and outs of the service. You can navigate through the article using the table of contents highlighted below:

What are Sell House Fast companies (Cash Buyers)?

That’s us!

Cash house buying companies, or also often referred to as “Sell House Fast” are pretty much what it says on the tin. There companies that will buy properties for cash, and in doing so can purchase your home far quicker than any other method.

Most cash house buyers quote that they can buy your property anywhere between 7 & 28 days. Some of them will also cover your fees and generally speaking, they won’t charge anything. In return for the speed of the sale, they will purchase your house at a “trade” price, much like if it was a car.

You’re essentially buying time for a bit of the equity in your property.

What we pay

You might now be wondering what we will pay for your property here at The Property Buying Company, and in all honesty, as fluffy of an answer as it is, we really don’t like to share, but for good reason!

Every house is different, the area, the condition, the type, the size, there are so many variables – so just to slap a percentage on it, doesn’t really do it justice either way. We also have a few different quick sale solutions that might suit you better, based on the time and percentage below market value you can accept.

So we always ask you to get in touch with us, and after a quick chat we should be able to provide you with a ball park figure based on the information provided. It’s completely no obligation and won’t take too much of your time, and we like to think we’re a pretty friendly bunch!

How we determine the value of a property

Another really key aspect to our offer is how we value your property originally, and again another reason a set percentage doesn’t work – everyone’s idea of market value will vary slightly different.

So how do we value your property? Well there’s a few steps to our valuation, to try and ensure we are as accurate as we possibly can be with it.

It starts by the initial conversation one of our property experts has with you, they’ll ask you a few questions about the house and it’s condition which will be used to send to our team of underwriters to help with the desktop valuation.

Our knowledgeable team of underwriters will then use all the information, their knowledge of the area and researching comparables to provide a guideline price. This will then be fed back to the property consultant who based on that, will present our initial offer.

If you are happy with this figure then we’ll look to arrange one of our Regional Managers to visit your property in person and just check that everything is as explained. Once they’ve done this, they will confirm the offer & again if you agree, contracts are signed.

Why do cash house buyers pay less?

We’ll make no bones about it, we’re transparent right from the start and honest about exactly what our service entails.

We will not pay you market value for your home.

Why? Well to put it simply, we’re a business.

But just because we pay below market value, it doesn’t necessarily mean you take that much of a hit when you take everything into account. When you sell through the traditional method like using an estate agent, you of course have to pay estate agent fees which you don’t have to consider with us.

On top of that we also cover all your solicitors fees – and not to mention, the speed of the sale makes a real difference too, as you’ll save considerably on utility bills, council tax and mortgage payments over the difference in sale duration.

We can buy your home in just 7 days! No stress, no hassle, no fees.

Are there any other fees involved?

Cash house buying companies often get a bad wrap in terms of charging clients with hidden fees or costs that are built into the contract.

We can categorically assure you that we do not charge you anything for our service. In fact, as we mentioned previously, we actually pay your solicitors costs and will cover the cost of the survey.

You save significantly when you compare it to the cost of estate agent fees, which can be as high as 3%. (example £200k property would be £6,000!)

So, should you sell to a cash house buyer?

Obviously as a cash buyer ourselves, we would love to just say yes! But the truth is it really depends on you, and what you need in your specific situation.

It’s not a service that is going to benefit everyone, but if you need a guaranteed sale within a quick time frame – it’s definitely worth exploring. Getting an offer on your property is completely free and no obligation, so there’s no harm in doing so.

If you want to achieve a higher overall value and can afford to wait the time that the open market might take, then we advise that you go down this route instead as it’s more suited to what you want to achieve.
