House Buyers

House Buyers For Cash Offers!

If you are searching for a house buyer to come along with cash to purchase your home, you may or may not be surprised with the amount of companies on the internet claiming to offer this service. However, you need to be aware that not all house buyers are what they make out, and you could end up being misled if you don’t first know what to look out for.

Some useful services for house buyers and sellers:-

A property buyer can have more than one meaning, its usually someone who is looking to buy houses fast, and has cash to do so. The other type of house buyer is a mortgage based property buyer. The only difference between the two is that the cash buyer has money in his bank to buy your home, and a mortgage buyer needs to ask the bank for the funds first.

Now this is where the problem comes in. As with any type of lending, banks and building societies are very cautious on who and what they will lend on. They also can take months to process and make decisions. In the end, they may even decline a property buyer from making a purchase based on valuations, surveys and other information that comes out down the line.

The process is slow, and if you are looking for a fast house sale, this is definitely not the route that you should take. It is not a guaranteed sale, the mortgage house buyer can pull out at any stage, and you have no security.

A cash house buyer is entirely different. They buy property with their own money, and don’t need to ask the bank for loans. It’s pure cash, no if’s or but’s and the money can be in your bank in as little as 7 days.

Some companies advertise on the internet that they can purchase your property for cash, when in actual fact they are mortgage based buyers. We recommend you avoid these buyers, as they can’t give you the guaranteed sale that you need. We always advise that you shop the market, but don’t be misled by any wild claims. If it sounds too good to be true, it generally is.

House buying is something that we specialise in, and what’s more we are genuine cash buyers. We can even prove we are cash buyers, by sending you proof of funds (our current bank statement) showing that we have the cash sitting and waiting for your home.

Companies That Buy Your House

Companies That Buy Your Property

Searching the internet for companies that buy houses, usually brings up thousands upon thousands of search results.

It can often be very confusing which company to choose, and which company is telling the truth! A lot of the websites on page one of the search results through around brash claims such as ‘we pay 100%’ or ‘best price paid’ or even in some cases ‘sell in 24 hours’.

We can tell you now that most of these claims are false, and only a handful of companies on the internet actually have the ability to be able to purchase your property from you for cash.

We know of 3 genuine cash buying companies in the market, and we personally deal with 2 of them directly. You may think that we are just saying this but we genuinely do care. We even insist that you shop around – and ask our competitors the following questions:-

  1. If you are a cash buyer, can you provide me with PROOF OF FUNDS.
  2. If you are a cash buyer, I shouldn’t need to sign a contract?
  3. If you are a cash buyer, can you confirm I don’t need to pay fees upfront for valuations or ‘admin’ fees?

If you phone around and speak to other companies that buy your property, and they pass the above questions then you are dealing with a genuine cash buying company – and not someone who is misleading you from the start.

At housepriceadvice.co.uk – we can offer you 3 types of sale, each one can be catered to your own personal needs when you come to selling.

Our first option is a straight-forward cash sale. That’s genuine cash in the bank in around 7 days. No fees to pay, we do all the valuations, we pay your solicitor fees, and we even let you stay in your property for up to 1 month after your sale has gone through without charging you rent or making you pay mortgage payments.

Because this is a genuine cash sale, we won’t be able to offer you full market value for your home, but we will make you a fair and decent offer, based on current market conditions and local sale information.

The second type of sale is an open market sale using our ultra-fast online estate agency service which could achieve you up to 100% market value. This service operates very similarly to a traditional estate agency, however the benefit is that that the turnaround time for finding a buyer is usually a lot quicker. Our buyers are also all vetted and ready to proceed with a sale – they just need a property to buy!

The third and final type of sale we can offer you, is to a private investor. We have a database of over 44,000 UK investors, who consider most local property to add to their portfolios.

Each investor is different, and each investor will make you an offer on your home based on their own criteria. We recommend that if you decide to use this service, you speak to a few investors, and not just the first one that comes along. You need to shop around the get the most competitive sale price.

Sell Your Own House Online

Sell My Own House On The Internet

If you are considering selling your own house online, you first must consider the precautions that you should take.

It is not as simple a task as going to a free property portal, writing a description and uploading a few photos; you need to consider viewings, legals and above all dealing with timewasters.

If you have ever sold a house before, you will probably know just how upsetting and disappointing it is when something goes wrong with a sale. Often chains break down, buyers pull out, and people as a general rule tend to let you down. It’s just part of human nature.

At housepriceadvice.co.uk we can help you get the sale you need, by using one of our 3 services that best suits you.

A Cash Sale To Us In 7 Days

This is our most straight forward way of selling, and our only way of guaranteeing a sale. You simply get a cash offer from us, and we pay you the money direct to your bank account in a matter of days. No stress, no fuss just genuine cash for a guaranteed sale.

Our online estate agency service

Last but not least our estate agency service may be able to help you. We aren’t like traditional estate agents, in that we don’t have a shop and we don’t have a window with available properties in.

Selling Your Own House Privately

Selling Your Own House Privately

Selling your own house privately could be a way of saving yourself a small fortune in fees that you would usually pay to a traditional estate agents.

It is a well-known fact that estate agents are taking up to 4 months to sell a house, that means if you are currently selling your property you have 4 months of mortgage payments, 4 months of household bills and 4 months being in a property that you no longer want to be in.

All of that is before fees come into play when you do sell.

If you go down the route of a private sale, you can either sell your own house privately using free property websites, or you can use a company to do the leg work for you.

The DIY route can be difficult. If you try to sell your house using the free online portals, putting up your own board and trying to arrange your own viewings – it may take you twice as long as a traditional estate agent as you don’t have the potential reach that Rightmove and Zoopla do, services that can only be used through an estate agency.

If you decide to use a company to help you sell your own house privately, you could save yourself a lot of time and effort and get a very quick sale.

Our service comes in 2 parts when it comes to private sales. We can either offer to buy your property from you for cash. There are no viewings, no photographs, no estate agents; just a simple, fast cash sale.

We can buy any property from you, no matter where it is located or what condition it is in. Just enter your postcode in the form above and our system will instantly calculate you an indicative cash offer for your property.

If you are happy with the offer that we make, we can proceed to purchase your property from you in a timescale that is suitable to you.

If you are not happy with the offer we make, then we can still help you. We have a database of over 44,000 property investors who are looking for local UK property, and desperate to hand over cash for the right deal.

We will market this database on your behalf, and actively attract these buyer for you free of charge. All you need to do is negotiate a sale with them!

The best thing to do at this stage is give us a call on 0800 623 7917. Our advice is completely free, we don’t charge any fees, and we can genuinely offer you cash in 7 days.

Remember, any advice we give you is free and completely confidential. Just enter your postcode above now for a FREE offer online or alternatively give us a quick call on 0800 612 7917. Lines are open 24/7, any time day or night.

Sell Your Own House Free

Selling Your Own House Free Of Fees

Selling your house on your own is difficult, and the general reason for most sellers choosing to sell in this way is they are trying to avoid paying estate agency fees.

Estate agents on average charge 2% for advertising and selling your property, but is it really possible to sell your property yourself and avoid paying this?

There are many websites on the internet where you can take your own photos and upload them, write your own descriptions, and promote your own property completely free of charge. However the issue with these types of sites is the volume of traffic that they receive as opposed to the likes of Rightmove and Zoopla.

It is not possible to advertise yourself on Rightmove, which is going to be your main disadvantage when it comes to selling your own home.

An alternative way of selling your own property for free is using a cash buying service. With our service we don’t charge any fees for selling, we will pay for your valuations, and we will even pay for your solicitor fees. This really is the best way to sell your property quickly and FOR FREE!

It is quite normal to shop the internet at look at other companies before you decide to sell your property, as it is a very big decision. We want you to do this, as we know you will end up coming back to us should you decide to sell your property to a cash buying company.

What you will likely find is the major companies will ask you to pay for your solicitor fees, they will ask you to pay for valuations and in some cases they will even ask you to pay an admin fee.

What’s worse is that more often than not these companies can’t even genuinely offer you a real cash sale. Not only are you not getting to sell your house for free, you are also paying for a service that you didn’t want in the first place.

To the best of our knowledge there are only 3 genuine cash buying companies in the UK, and we work very closely with 2 of them. These are the companies that you can trust when you want to sell your own house without using an estate agency, and when you want to get a cash sale.

To find out how much we will pay, simply put your postcode in the form above. Our system will calculate an offer based on your location, property type, valuation and recent sales in your area. Alternatively to find out more about our services and how we can help you, give us a call on 0800 612 7917.

How To Sell Your Own House

How To Sell Your Own House Online

Selling your own house can often be very rewarding, and can also help alleviate some of the costs involved with property sales. However you need to be aware of exactly the amount of work that needs to go in, and plan out how you are going to promote and ‘sell’ your property.

First things first, you need to establish the value of your property. You really can’t just pick this number from the top of your head, or go off what your neighbour’s house sold for, and add on a few thousand for your new kitchen. The only true way to know the value of your property is to ask a chartered surveyor to carry out a RICS valuation.

Even an estate agents valuation is inaccurate, and often highly inflated. The reason for this is that estate agents want your business. They want you to sign up with them on contracts for 6 months +. If they give you a high price at the start and tell you that they can achieve it, you may just fall for it, and regrettably somewhere down the line, after you have had very few viewings, they will come back to you, and renegotiate your asking price.

Once you have established your valuation the next stage is to think about promotion for your property. The first step is to get a board. You can quite cheaply get these made on the internet, or alternatively you can make your own from scratch.

After that it is a case of advertising! You can go on free portals like Telipo and Gumtree. You can put your property in local classifieds like Adtrader. You could even independently put your property advert in the newspaper.

You then need to think about viewings and who is going to show people around. More often than not, potential viewers feel intimidated by current owners, and prefer an estate agent. You could possibly ask a friend, or colleague to do the viewings for you – ideally someone who doesn’t have an interest in the sale of the house.

After all of that you need to sort out solicitors, and chase them up to completion.

It’s not an easy task selling a house yourself, and having a company do it for you is much easier. At housepriceadvice.co.uk, you can use our service to either a. sell your property fast for cash, or b. find a local investor looking for property in your area.

To find out more about our services give us a call on Freephone 0800 612 7917, or alternatively enter your postcode above for a free indicative offer on your property.

Remember, any advice we give you is free and completely confidential. Just enter your postcode above now for a FREE offer online or alternatively give us a quick call on 0800 612 7917. Lines are open 24/7, any time day or night.

Ways To Sell House Privately

3 Ways You Can Sell House Privately

1.     Using A Cash Property Buying Company

The best way to sell a house privately to sell your house privately is to use a cash buying company. These types of company have sprung up in their hundreds over the past 12 months, but you need to be careful that you choose the right one. The OFT (office of fair trading) recently launched an investigation into the quick sale industry, and produced a report for people who are considering using a service like this. We recommend you full read this report located here.

We can safely say that if you decide to sell using our service, we will not charge you any fees for valuations, we will pay all of your solicitor fees, and we will not tie you into any lengthy contracts. Our service is a genuine cash buying service, and we don’t use mortgages to buy property, therefore, realistically we can buy your property, and have the cash in your bank in 7 days.

2.     Using An Online Estate Agency Service

Although this type of sale is not the most private way of selling, you don’t need to have a board up at your door, and you can be as discreet as you like. Unlike traditional estate agency services, with an online estate agency – there is no shop window, so if you don’t have a board up, people in your street or town don’t need to know that you are selling. The only people that would need to visit you are potential buyers. With our online estate agency service we will only put you in touch with buyers who are in a position to buy quickly, ie they aren’t in a chain and are generally looking to buy for cash or are first time investors.

3.     Using Our Vetted Investor Finder Service

As far as quick sales go, our investor link up service is fairly unique, and offers you a great way of selling your property, with no fees, and still getting a private sale. We will put you directly in touch with one of our pre-vetted and pre-registered property investors, of which we have 44,000+, all of which are looking to buy specific local property. Because these investors are local, as a general rule they are able to pay you more for your property than a cash buying company – although they often rely on mortgages and may not be able to complete as quick as a genuine cash buyer.

Should I Sell My House Privately

Should You Sell Your House Privately?

Selling your house privately without an estate agency can be a daunting task, and one which in all likelihood a lot of people will contemplate, but never carry out. Our aim is to show you the pro’s and con’s so you can evaluate yourself whether it is for you, and whether it is something you want to proceed with.

The first thing to note is that an average estate agent charges around 2% of a sale in fees. So, if your property is worth £200,000 you will pay £4000, if your property is worth £400,000 you will pay £8000 etc.

These fees are non-negotiable, and if you use an estate agent you have to pay their fees, which may vary from agent to agent.

The second thing to note is timescales for a sale. Using an estate agent is likely to take you 4 months plus to sell. During those 4 months, you still need to pay your current mortgage, your weekly bills and keep your house running.

(With a quick house sale to a private company, you usually can complete in 7 days – meaning no more bills to pay. Woo hoo! That is, until you get in your new property. Arggh!)

There are benefits to using an estate agency to sell traditionally, but if you need to sell privately they really can’t help you. What you generally need is a cash buying company. The only issue is that the ‘quick sale’ industry is notorious for scam companies who will rip you off.

The OFT (Office Of Fair Trading) recently launched an enquiry into the quick sale industry to tighten it up, and make companies get their acts together and show vendors exactly what they would be getting.

We for one campaigned for this, and think it is a very good thing.

With our private sale service what you are getting is the following:-

  1. Cash in your bank in 7 days (or a timescale to suit you)
  2. No fees to pay (we even pay for your solicitors)
  3. Proof of funds in hours (we can send this to you or your solicitor)
  4. No last minute price changes (what we say we will pay, we pay!)
  5. No ‘admin’ fees (some companies have a nerve!)
  6. No pressure tactics (no obligation or forms to sign)
  7. Genuine 80% market value achievable
  8. Alternative options to achieve up to 100% market value

There’s really no harm in speaking to us, even if it is just to curb your curiosity. Our advice is completely free, you are under no obligation to sell, and we are here to help. Call us any time night or day on 0800 612 7917. We are waiting to take your call. Alternatively just enter your postcode in the form above for an indicative preliminary cash offer on your home.

Selling Property Privately

Selling Property Privately To A Trusted Buyer

Before the birth of the internet, selling your house privately was often a difficult task as there was not many cash buyers around and finding them was a task in itself.

Now in the digital age, there are well over 500 ‘quick sale’ websites on the internet, all claiming to be able to buy your house for cash, and give you a sale in as little as 7 days.

Recently, the OFT (Office Of Fair Trading), made a large scale investigation into the sector, and found that 99% of the companies trading were doing one if not all of the following practices.

1.     Making a high offer then dropping at the last minute.

This appears to be quite common practice in the industry, and is probably the most frowned upon by vendors. What generally happens is the company involved will make you an attractive offer, something that you will likely accept, get you all the way down to valuations being carried out, solicitors involved and paperwork prepared – then they will pull the plug on you at the last minute. That is, unless you accept their new and revised much lower offer. Their aim in doing this is that the seller will buckle and accept their new offer, because if they don’t the whole sales process will have to be started again.

2.     Tying a vendor into a 6 month + contract

At housepriceadvice.co.uk we found this one a little strange. Why would a ‘cash buying company’ need to make you sign a contract to say you can’t sell your house with anyone else for 6 months to a year? If they have the funds to buy your house in 7 days as they claim, they wouldn’t need to. The method in the madness behind this one is that the so called ‘cash buyer’ doesn’t really have any cash, and is either relying on investors buying, relying on selling your house on the open market (ie really an estate agent), or they are up to some other sort of scam. The quickest way to finding a genuine cash buyer is to ask them up front for proof of funds. If they can’t send you a bank statement or similar showing they have the funds available to buy your property, the likelihood is they aren’t a private buyer after all.

3.     False claims on timescales for buying your property.

Most of the companies on the first page of the search engine, when you type in ‘sell my house fast’ or similar; claim to be able to buy your property in as little as 7 days (some even sooner apparently). The likelihood is this is just a scam to get you to sign up, so they can try to convince you to sign in to a contract as mentioned in the previous point.

4.     “We buy your house for 100% market value”.

This statement is brandished around a lot amongst the quick sale companies, and generally it is complete nonsense. No ‘business’ is going to buy something for 100% market value in order to sell it for 100% market value. That wouldn’t be a very good business as they wouldn’t make any money out of it! Any company that states it can buy your house for 100% market value is lying. The chances are that they are just using this as a tactic to get your details in order to try and persuade you to drop your asking price considerably. The facts are simple, just make sure you read into the small print!

Sell Your House Privately

Sell Your Property Privately

Selling your house privately can usually mean one of two things. You either want to sell your house yourself without the use of an estate agent, or you are looking for a private buyer to come along and buy your house for cash.

If you are considering selling your house yourself on the open market without using an estate agent, by making your own board, using free websites etc, unfortunately this is something that we cannot help you with. However, we can recommend you try Sarah Beeney’s new service Telipo. On this website you can advertise your property completely free.

Finding a buyer this way may be very time consuming, and without the use of top property portals like Rightmove and Zoopla, getting that much needed exposure for your home will be difficult.

If you genuinely want to sell your house privately, we can help you by buying your property quickly and privately off the open market for cash. We are genuine cash buyers, and have the funds to complete on any property in 7 days (or in a timescale to suit you).

Nobody needs to know you have sold, we won’t take photos, we won’t put up boards and we won’t put you on the property portals. We simply arrange a valuation, and make you a cash offer on that valuation, for a quick sale.

The beauty with our service is there are no fees to sell, meaning we take all the risk, we pay for valuations, we pay for your solicitors fees and we will even help you with moving costs into your new home.

If a 7 day private sale is too quick for you, we will even let you stay in your property for up to 1 month after the sale has gone through, completely mortgage free – and without paying us any rent.

A private sale of your property can be achieved in as little 7 days using our quick sale option, and we can usually buy your property no matter what condition it is in.

We can also buy property in any location in the UK (excluding Northern Ireland).

One question you may be asking about our service is “can my estate agent claim fees if I sell privately?”

If you have a sole agency agreement with your estate agent, you are obliged to pay the estate agent a fee if they find you a buyer. However, if you find a private buyer yourself, you don’t need to pay them.

For any further information on this, just give our friendly team a call on Freephone 0800 612 7917, or submit your postcode above for an indicative cash offer on your property.
