In this article we’ll touch on what exactly a sell house fast service is, a bit more about us, and how you can go about choosing a company to sell your home too. You can quickly navigate the article by using the links below to jump to the section you’re most interested in:

What is “Sell House Fast”?

A sell house fast company, or cash buying company as they are often referred to, is a company that can buy your property in a quick timeframe, for cash.

Each company is different, but generally, once you enquire and have a chat with them, they will value your property and make you an offer based either on the information you have given or a home visit. This offer will typically be subject to a RICs valuation or local estate agent valuations, which will be made clear in the initial contract that you sign.

Once agreed they will speed through the purchasing process, typically by having a priority relationship with solicitors and being able to buy with cash and therefore not needing any form of approval, allowing them to purchase your home quickly.

Depending on the company, most will quote that they can buy your home anywhere between 7 to 10 days. In return for the speed of the sale, you will generally achieve below market value for your property – beware of companies that say they offer full market value, there’s no way they can do this and earn money as a business.

The service is suitable for those that require a sale within a guaranteed timeframe, as you will likely achieve a higher value on the open market, but often have to wait a long and uncertain amount of time.

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

About us

So who are The Property Buying Company? We’re one of the UK’s leading property buying companies, but we like to think we’re a lot more than just your standard house buyer, we go above and beyond.

We’re owned, managed and run by experienced property professionals, and unlike several other companies in the arena, we’re genuine 100% cash buyers, not middlemen, meaning we can complete in extremely short timeframes and offer you the best trade prices.

We started back in 2012, so have several years’ experience in buying properties, so believe us when we say, we’ve seen and dealt with it all! We’re a professional outfit with a great team, and we’re also members of The National Association of Property Buyers (NAPB) and The Property Ombudsman (TPO), so you know we’re a name that you can trust.

We also recommend before enquiring with us, you should read through some of our customer experience reviews.

What to look out for when choosing a cash buying company

Choosing a cash buying company can be difficult, there are lots of out there, hundreds in fact, so how do you differentiate the good and genuine ones from the, well, not so genuine ones.

There are a few key things that you should look out for when dealing with any property buyer, here’s a quick list:

  • Ask if they are genuine cash buyers

You should ask the company to provide proof that they are genuine cash buyers. A lot of companies out there pretending to be cash buyers aren’t, they are either simply middlemen who will sell your details on, or will require external funding to purchase your property which adds time to the process, making the promise of 7-10 days unachievable.

  • Check they are members of The Property Ombudsman & The National Association of Property Buyers

Every company you deal with in this space should be registered to both of these bodies – property buying companies are not regulated, but The Property Ombudsman, in particular, offers a method of resolving disputes between customers and property agents, it essentially offers an extra layer of protection to the transaction.

  • Read their reviews

We recommend that you read their external reviews. Go to as many platforms as possible, and most importantly Trustpilot, to read through their reviews, both positive and negative. Read the reviews in-depth to determine whether they look genuine.

  • We’ll offer “100%” market value!

No genuine house buying company will be able to offer you 100% market value, it’s simply not a viable business model. There are a few unscrupulous companies out there that will advertise such figures, to then later down the line reduce their offer in line with other property buying companies.

  • Read the contract

Make sure you read all the fine print. Sometimes there could be details hidden in the contracts that you may not realise, such as exit fees if you wish to withdraw from the process. Make sure you go through the contract with a fine-tooth comb and ensure you understand it all before signing on the dotted line.

Why choose to sell your house fast?

It’s not for everyone, and we’ll tell you that right from the start. When you choose a sell house fast service, you need to be aware that you will not receive a full market value offer, so if you have the time to wait for the duration of a typical open market sale, then this might not be the option for you.

That being said, a sell house fast solution can be great if you need a guaranteed sale within a specific time, particularly for certain circumstances, such as relocating for work or repairing a chain break. Sometimes it could just be that your time is worth more to you than the reduction in market value!

We'll buy your home in as little as 7 days!
