How do I decide when a Sell House Fast service makes sense?

We explain how the service works and how to decide if it's for you...

Here at The Property Buying Company, we predominately have one core offering, our Sell House Fast service. This service is a little bit different to your typical house sale process through an estate agent or auction.

In this article, you can find out when a sell house fast service makes sense, what the process entails, as well as what you need to look out for when choosing a ‘sell house fast company’ – keep reading to find out more.

What is our Sell House Fast service?

Our sell house fast service is the fastest way to sell your house for guaranteed cash. It offers a different solution to a process that is normally long and tedious.

What does this mean for you? Well, being a sell house fast company, we can buy your house in as little as 7 days. On top of that, there are no costs to you, no estate agency fees or commission, and we also cover the costs of the solicitors. Our service is completely tailored to you, meaning we will complete on your chosen date, best suited to your requirements.

Due to the nature of the fast service, we’re unable to offer the full market value for your property. As a result of this, it’s not going to be a service that is suitable for everyone – if you have the time to wait on the open market to potentially get closer to the market value, then this service won’t be right for you.

We can provide you with a no obligation cash offer in 24 hours!

The Sell House Fast process

We’ve worked hard to make sure the sell house fast process is as quick as it could possibly be, so we can get you moving fast! The whole service can be broken down into 5 simple steps:

  • Eligibility check

Enter your postcode into our get an offer page and answer a few simple questions about your property – how many bedrooms you’ve got, your house type, nothing too difficult! After that, we will let you know if your property has been approved

  • Receive your offer (in 24 hours!)

Once we’ve got your information, one of our experienced property consultants will give you a call after doing some research on your property. They will discuss your property with you in more detail, talking mainly about its condition, which allows them to provide you with a conditional initial offer

  • We'll visit your property & formalise an offer

If you’re happy with the initial offer, we’ll then arrange for one of our regional managers to come and visit the property in person. Our regional managers have expert local knowledge and are able to inspect the condition of the property in more detail in order to finalise an offer

  • Solicitors are instructed and fees are paid

If you accept the finalised offer, then it’s time for us to instruct our solicitors. Our progressions team will get in touch with you to talk about instructing one of our recommended solicitors, and we will remind you that we will cover the costs of this. We will also pay for the searches and RICS on your property

  • Exchange & completion

Once the RICS report is back, providing everything lines up, we will finalise all the legal work, allowing us to exchange contracts and complete on a day that suits you!

How does the service actually work?

If you’ve been through the process of selling your house through the more traditional method with an estate agent on the open market, then you’re probably finding it hard to believe that we can complete the same process in as little as 7 days. We assure you, we can – we’ve actually done a few properties quicker before!

How? Well, it boils down to three main aspects; our internal process; our relationships and finally, being cash buyers.

As a cash buyer, we’re not relying on banks on funds and so are able to buy your house using our own cash reserves.

We’ve been buying houses quickly for 10+ years now, and we like to think that over time we’ve perfected our process – each of our property consultants and progressions departments are dealing with several properties a month, so they know exactly what they can do to speed through the process!

We also have relationships with solicitors and RICS surveyors which means we can get priority and a streamlined service that still ticks all the boxes but ensures that they are far quicker than if they were dealing with a typical customer, just due to our business relationship.

And finally, as we mentioned, we have the cash facilities to buy any property, anywhere in England and Wales, no matter the value! Being a cash buyer speeds up the process significantly as we don’t need any approval.

We’ve streamlined all aspects of house buying!

Getting a cash offer is FREE and will only take a few minutes...

When does a Sell House Fast service make sense?

We’re always open and transparent about the fact our sell house fast service isn’t going to be for everyone, so it’s important that you decide if it’s right for you.

The main purpose of our service is speed – if you have the time (and patience) to wait on the open market for a sale, you may achieve a higher value, but there are no guarantees of that.

Our sell house fast service may be best for you if:

Going through a divorce

Going through a divorce can be extremely tough and really takes its toll on all involved. For this reason, couples often look to get a fast, stress-free sale of their biggest joint asset, their house, so they’re able to move on and have one less thing to worry about.

Financial issues

Often people can run into financial difficulty, and they need to release some equity from their house ASAP, especially in those situations where you’re looking to avoid repossession. In these circumstances, time is of the essence, making a quick sale a high priority.


Whether you’re moving to a different country or city, relocation can be something that happens very fast, meaning you will need to get your house sold quickly. This makes our sell house fast service an ideal route.

Inherited property

Inheriting a property and having to deal with probate comes at a time when you have other stresses and don’t want to be weighed down with further worries of paying the bills for the inherited property. In this situation, a lot of people search for a quick sale.

Lifestyle changes

There comes a time when people decide they want to downsize, get equity from their house and move into a property more suited to their needs. The need to downsize may be as a result of health or age, so it’s important to get a fast stress-free sale.

How will it help me?

If you’re in a situation where speed is a necessity, then our sell house fast service will be the right option for you. We can buy your house in as little as 7 days, covering all your fees for you, leaving you with cash in your bank.

This is something that selling your house through a more traditional method can’t offer, such as with an estate agent on the open market.

Whilst we won’t be able to give you the full market value for your property, we don’t charge you a penny for our service and we’re able to get you out of a bad situation if you need the equity from your house ASAP.

What to watch out for

When choosing a cash house buying company for a fast sake, there are certain things you need to be wary of.

Any cash house buying company offering you a fast sale for 100% of the market value are making promises they simply won’t be able to deliver, meaning you need to be wary of any company who are stating they can do this.

When choosing which company to go with, you should make sure you do your research in order to make an informed decision and not get scammed by empty promises.

If you’re asking us, we’re pretty confident our sell house fast service will be exactly what you’re looking for…
