Don’t have the time to go through the potentially long and laborious process of selling your house via an estate agent? Whatever your reasons for selling fast, a reputable cash house buying company might be your best bet.

Benefits of selling to a cash house buyer

  • Speed

Each week, cash house buyers help thousands of people sell their homes much quicker than they could through an estate agent, or even by auction. Drawing a line under the process after as little as two to three days compared with the six months you could be looking at with an estate agent might make a lot more sense depending on your circumstances.

  • Chain-free sale

Because of the number of different parties involved in the average house sale, the chances that something goes wrong are greatly increased. This is what often turns a potential three month sale into a six month ordeal.

  • No estate agents = higher certainty

There are bad apples in every industry of course (including many of our cash house buyer competitors), but estate agents aren’t always the easiest bunch to deal with. They also only sell around 51% of the properties they take on, so you there’s every chance you end up going through a long, drawn-out process with nothing to show for it at the end.

  • No viewings, no renovations

Many people go to great lengths when they’re trying to sell their house; deep cleaning bathrooms, removing personal items and generally trying to get everything looking perfect. With cash house buyers there’s no ned for any of this, you’ll be saving yourself a lot of time and stress.

  • We buy any home

Not only will you not have to carry out expensive renovations or learn how to become a landscape architect, many cash house buyers will buy homes suffering from the kind of issues that might make them impossible to sell otherwise. Whether your property has subsidence, damp or it’s located on a flood plain, we’ll give you a fair price for it.

Potential drawbacks of cash house buyers

Just like with estate agents, the cash house buyer industry doesn’t have the best of reputations for a reason. Many companies take advantage of the pressures the seller might be under — whether they’re getting divorced or they need to relocate quickly for a new job — by offering one price and then lowering it at the last moment.

To make matters worse, the cash house buyer industry is woefully under regulated. Groups like the Property Ombudsman and the National Association of Property Buyers do ‘not have the authority to take regulatory or legal action against an agent, impose fines or dictate the way agents conduct their business.’

At Francis Property Group, however, we have built our reputation over sixteen years by avoiding the kind of underhanded tactics that are all too prevalent in this industry. We’re in this for the long term, so making short-term profit from the misery of others isn’t part of our strategy.
