What is our sell house fast service?

Our sell house fast service is the quickest way to sell your house for guaranteed cash in your bank. It’s a fast, simple and stress-free alternative to what is normally a stressful and tedious process.

What our sell house fast service means for you is the ability to sell your house in as little as 7 days, with no costs to you, with there being no estate agent fees involved and we will cover the legal fees.

Our service is completely tailored to you, meaning you can choose the timescale, so we will complete on a date that is completely suited to you and your needs.

The sell house fast process

We’ve worked hard to make our sell house fast process as quick and hassle-free as possible, meaning we can get you moved ASAP! The whole service can be broken down into five simple steps:

  • 1. Eligibility check

    First, 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.

  • 2. Receive your offer

    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 in more detail, mainly talking about its condition, which allows them to provide you with a conditional initial offer.

  • 3. Property visit & formalise the offer

    If you’re happy with the initial offer, we will 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 in more detail in order to finalise an offer.

  • 4. Solicitors are instructed and fees are paid

    If you accept this 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.

  • 5. Exchange & completion

    Once the RICS report is back, as long as everything lines up, we will finalise all the legal work, allowing us to exchange contracts and complete on a date chosen by you!

How does the service actually work?

If you’ve been through the process of selling your house on the open market, you might be wondering how it’s possible that we can buy your house in 7 days. Well, we assure you that it’s no lie – it’s something we’re very capable of doing!

But how? It all comes down to three main aspects; our internal process; our relationships; and being cash buyers.

We’ve been buying houses fast for over 10 years now, so we like to think that over this time we have perfected the process. Each of our property consultants and progressions department deals with multiple properties each month, so they know exactly what to do to speed the process up.

We’ve also built relationships with solicitors and RICS surveyors meaning we get priority and a ‘streamlined’ service, that will still tick all the boxes but will ensure a far quicker service compared to when dealing with a typical customer.

Finally, we have cash facilities to buy any property, anywhere in England and Wales, no matter the condition! Being a cash buyer significantly speeds up the process, as we don’t need any approval from a house repayments lender.

We’ve really thought of everything to streamline the service!

Pros & cons of our sell house fast service

We’re always open and honest throughout our service about the fact we know we’re not the right option for everyone. The main key to our business is speed – if you have the time and patience to wait on the open market for a sale, then you may achieve a higher value for your property.
