How do we compare to estate agents

When you need to do a fast house sale, it’s natural to wonder if you’ll get as much money as through an estate agent. While our cash offers may be slightly below market value, there are hidden costs to consider.

Traditional estate agent sales can take months, meaning more mortgage payments, bills and upkeep. These costs add up! We can buy your house in days or weeks, with a guaranteed cash offer. No waiting, no unreliable buyers. 

If a quick, hassle-free sale is your priority, these benefits often outweigh a slightly lower price. Get your free cash offer today and see if it’s the right solution for you!

The Property Buying Company vs Estate Agents

When you factor in the time, hassle, and hidden costs of selling via an estate agent you might be surprised how close our ‘sell house quick’ offer actually is. Sometimes, it might even put more money in your pocket overall!

Sale processTraditional estate agent (9 months)Our cash buying service (7 days)
Property 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 (£75,000 repayment at 5% PA = £563 pcm or £5067 for 6 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 £79,892Final 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.

Even knowing the costs of time, many people still default to using an estate agent. It’s the familiar way, right? But the truth is, it often leads to frustration:

  • Overvaluation delays: Estate agents sometimes inflate prices to win your business ,making your property sit on the market longer.

  • Price drops: You might end up having to reduce the price anyway to get genuine interest.

  • Wasted effort: All those viewings and negotiations can be exhausting, with no guarantee of a sale. 

Doesn’t a faster, more certain approach sound appealing? Get your cash offer today to see if it’s the solution you need.

This approach ensures you can move on from your property swiftly and efficiently, without the common complications and delays associated with other selling avenues.

When debt feels overwhelming, a fast house sale can be a lifeline. We buy houses quickly, releasing the equity you need to clear debts and avoid repossession. 

We have the funds to buy your house directly, and we can exchange contracts in as little as 48 hours using our fast solicitors. The solicitors we use have their own litigation team in house to fight repossession and assist you throughout the process. 

Avoid further damage by selling quickly to help prevent additional fees and a negative impact on your credit. We understand the stress you’re facing, which is why our progressions team will have your back at every step of the process.

Before making any decision on selling your home, whether it be through a traditional service, or a quick house sale service such as ourselves, you need to explore all your options and ensure you are fully informed before jumping in.

We’ve created a quick checklist that will help you determine whether a sell house fast service is a good option to explore for yourself, and how to evaluate that.

Property valuation

  • Make sure you know what your property is worth. We’ll provide you with a valuation, which we always try to be as accurate as possible, but you should try to do as much research as possible so you fully understand your property's value.

Independent bodies

  • When searching for quick house sale companies, ensure they are a member of the National Association of Property Buyers & The Property Ombudsman. Don’t just trust a logo on their website, check on the independent bodies members pages.

Understand agreements

  • Make sure you read and understand any agreement sent to you carefully. We don’t hide anything in our agreement that we haven’t informed you of, but you should always check yourself before signing.

Be honest

  • You need to be prepared to be honest with us, and any fast sale service for that matter. A lot of the initial valuation and offer process is done based on information we can find out about the local property market & the information you provide us about the property. If you’re not honest about its condition or anything that’s happened with the property, it’ll just lead to disappointment for both parties.

Property survey

  • We order a survey on your property when we’re buying it. At this point, sometimes depending on the results we may have to re-adjust our offer, but please by all means request to see the survey yourself to determine if any alterations are fair.

Log communications

  • Keep all written, emailed and phone communications logged. We keep track of everything, and you can always request information, but ensure that you keep a log of all the conversations you have with the given company, just in case, it’s good practice!

We'll buy your house 36 times faster than estate agents

Your sell house quickly frequently asked questions

Have questions about selling your house, the current market, or our services? Browse our Sell your house fast FAQs below to help you navigate the process, make informed decisions and achieve your goals.

Should I use a sell house fast company rather than a high street, online estate agent or an auction company?

Sell house fast companies offer the fastest timelines, often buying within 7 days or a couple weeks. Their cash offers might be slightly below market value, so you’ll need to decide if speed and certainty outweigh getting the absolute highest price.

Estate agents and auctions can get you closer to market value but take longer and have less certainty. Bidding wars during property auctions have become less common, with an average of 2.5 offers per property. 

With The Property Buying Company, you’ll get a house significantly faster than traditional estate agents. Estate agents can take months with no promise of a final sale. 

We can buy your house directly, often within days. Get a guaranteed offer, no delays or failed deals. We cover legal fees and there are no estate agent commissions.

We offer solutions to fit your needs. If speed and simplicity matter most, selling directly to us is the clear winner. Fill out our postcode form to get the ball rolling.

Is selling my house to a cash buying company the safest way to get a quick house sale?

Selling your house to a cash buyer is one of the best ways to ensure that your house sale is guaranteed. Over one third of house sales fall through every year on the open market which is why selling with a cash buyer can be a great, safe way to sell your house.

Work with established companies like The Property Buying Company. We’re accountable to industry regulators, have a strong 12 year history and prioritise transparency. 

A cash sale eliminates the risk of mortgage delays or buyers changing their minds, offering more certainty. If you have concerns, consult a property solicitor for independent advice.

Why should I sell my house to you 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 quick sale price from the offset.

How many people use sell house fast services?

Sell house fast services are becoming increasingly popular as homeowners seek faster and simpler alternatives to traditional estate agent sales. While precise figures on the number of users are difficult to track, several factors point to their rise:

  • Speed and certainty: According to a recent survey, 45% of those opting for quick sales cite avoiding lengthy chains and delays as their primary motivation.

  • Growing cash buyer market: Cash buyers now account for an estimated 30% of all UK property transactions, offering a guaranteed sale within a defined time frame. 

  • Changing needs: These services are often used by those facing financial difficulties, downsizing, relocating urgently or inheriting properties.

How does 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 Regional 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.

If I sell my house to The Property Buying Company, am I liable to any fees or charges?

No – all your legal fees are included! There’s no hidden charges or catches to our quick sale service – what we offer is what you’ll receive.

Is it possible to sell a house in under 4 weeks?

Yes! Cash buying companies specialise in these timelines. The Property Buying Company can often complete sales in as little as 7 days, so under 4 weeks is a breeze! 

We guarantee that we can sell your house in under 4 weeks, often even faster. This may seem too good to be true when compared to estate agent timelines, but we are able to buy your house fast due to the way we work.

We buy houses with our own funds, eliminating mortgage delays. We work the most efficient legal teams in the UK and cover your costs. Our directors have decades of experience completing fast sales and ensuring your timeline is our number one priority.

Our reviews prove it - we prioritise reliability and protect our hard-earned reputation. Ready for fast, reliable sale? Fill out our get your offer form.

Do I require a solicitor if I choose The Property Buying Company’s service?

As part of our service, we have solicitors within our network who operate nationwide - we will cover all the fees associated with solicitors. But, if you already have someone in mind, you’re more than welcome to appoint them to act on your behalf.

How quickly can I sell my home when using The Property Buying Company’s sell house fast service?

We specialise in fast sales, completing within as little as 7 days. Need it even faster? We can exchange contracts in as little as 24 hours for urgent cases.

For urgent sales, we’ll immediately secure the deal and protect you with insurance. Our fast solicitors get contracts and funds ready. Most sales finalised within a week of exchange. We’re available every step of the way to answer questions and ensure a smooth transaction.

Are high street estate agents the fastest cash house buyers?

No, high street estate agents usually fulfil sales to traditional buyers, who often rely on mortgages. This process can take months, and can be painfully slow. Long wait times and over 1 in 3 sales falling through are the norm.

While estate agents can potentially get you a higher price, it comes at a cost: time and uncertainty. They work on your behalf to maximise the sale value, but it might take months. 

For a fast, guaranteed sale, companies like The Property Buying Company are often a better choice. Cash buying companies specialise in buying houses directly with their own funds, making them the fastest option.

Can I get a cash advance before the house sale exchange and completion?

To ensure a secure and guaranteed house sale, we don’t offer cash advances before exchange. This policy safeguards the transaction for both the seller and the buyer. But, it does mean that we focus on a fast completion. We prioritise completing the sale as fast as possible.

Do I get my cash on house sale completion?

Yes, upon completion (the official transfer of ownership), you will receive the agreed-upon sale price from the cash buying company. This means that the funds are securely in your account when the ownership officially transfers.

Is a cash offer the best option for me?

Is a cash offer right for you? It depends…Cash offers provide speed and certainty, but often come at a slightly lower price (usually 75% to 85% of market value). 

If speed is critical, a cash offer might be ideal. But if maximising profit is your top priority, our online estate agency or selling on the open market may be a better option. 

Let’s discuss your goals and find the best selling strategy for you!

How do I calculate the current price of my property?

Get an accurate valuation of your property - beyond online calculators. Tools like Zoopla and Rightmove are useful starting points, but they don’t capture the full picture. Factors like renovations, neighbourhood nuances and market trends impact your home’s true value. 

Get a personalised, in-depth valuation from our seasoned property consultants. We combine online data with our 100+ years of experience and local insights for a realistic price point. Ready for a precise valuation? Click “Get Your Offer” and let’s get started!

Would it be best to sell my house on Rightmove?

Rightmove offers excellent exposure with over 90% of new property searches beginning online, potentially maximising your sale price. However, you may need to consider these factors:

  • Timeline:  Traditional sales can take longer, with no guarantee of completion.

  • Stress: Navigating offers, negotiations, and potential fall throughs can be stressful. 

Here at The Property Buying Company, we guarantee a fast purchase, ideal if speed is your priority. Selling with our estate agency means we can list your property on Rightmove or Zoopla, while offering dedicated support, often leading to quicker sales than the fully open market.

Should I post my house on Gumtree to try to sell quicker?

Your options:

  • Online estate agency: Combines these trusted platforms with professional support for a faster, more secure sale. 

  • Cash buyer: Bypasses the open market entirely for guaranteed speed and convenience.

Is exchanging a house a good alternative to selling?

Part exchanging can be a fast way to move, especially if you’re struggling to sell your current home. But, you’re typically restricted to new-build properties from the developer, which will have potential resale risks in the future. 

If speed is your main goal, consider a cash buyer like The Property Buying Company. We offer purchases within 7 days and dedicated support throughout. Want to get started? Click get your offer above for a no obligation cash offer.

I don’t have title deeds. Can I still sell my house fast?

If you are missing your title deeds, we can help you sell your house fast. While missing title deeds add an additional step to the process, they don’t prevent a sale. 

We’ll work with experienced conveyancers to speed the registration of your property with HM Land Registry. We’ll be ready to forward with a cash offer as soon as the registration is complete.

What tax liabilities slow down my house sale process?

When selling your house, you may be liable to Capital Gains Tax, Income Tax and Inheritance Tax. 

If you are selling a property that’s not your primary residence (a second home, rental property, etc) you may be liable for Capital Gains Tax on any profits exceeding your annual allowance.

Complex calculations can take time, especially if you’ve owned the property for many years or made improvements. You generally have 60 days after completion to report your sale and pay any CGT due. If funds aren’t readily available, it could delay completion. 

If you are selling a rental property, any income generated in the tax year up to the sale date is subject to income tax. And, if you inherit a property and then sell it you may need to pay Inheritance Tax if the estate hasn’t been fully settled yet. 

You do not need to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax when you are selling your house, this is primarily a buyer’s responsibility but it can indirectly impact sellers. 

If the buyer is struggling to secure financing due to a large SDLT burden, it can delay the sale princess. Delays at any point in the property chain can cause ripple effects.

What questions should you ask when selling your house quickly?

We want every single customer that we deal with to be fully informed of our service, the offering and what exactly we can do for them.

If you’re considering going with us, or any other quick house sale company for that matter, here’s some great questions to come armed with:

  • How exactly do you value my property?

  • How do we pay for all the properties we purchase?

  • What kind of timescales can we work to?

  • Do I have to pay any fees or charges in the process?

  • What may cause the offer to change, and at what point could this happen?

How much will we pay for your property?

We are upfront about our transparency while pricing for a smooth sale. While our focus is on speed (buying your house in as little as 7 days), our cash offer will typically be in the range of 80% to 85% of market value. This reflects the convenience and certainty we provide.

Location, condition and property type can influence the final offer. A well-maintained home may receive a higher percentage. Ready for a straightforward offer and quick sale? Click get your offer and fill out your details to get the party started.

Do I pay stamp duty when selling my house?

You generally don’t pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) when selling a property unless you’re also buying another property at the same time. If you are buying another home, SDLT may apply to your new purchase.

Need help calculating SDLT for your onward purchase? We can help you with purchasing onward properties when you sell your house for cash.
