What is a cash house buyer?

  • A cash house buyer is either an individual or company with sufficient funds to pay for the entirety of your property.
  • While there are numerous benefits to using house buyers who pay cash for your property, such as being able to sell your house incredibly quickly, you must also take care and consideration to ensure you only work with a professional and reliable house buying company.
  • As you can imagine, not all home buyers who use cash to buy property are trustworthy. Some are simply acting on behalf of other organisations and may charge extra fees for services such as arranging surveys.
  • Others may also attempt to profit further by selling your information to third parties.
  • At We Buy Any Home, there are no hidden fees or expenses and we guarantee that you will receive the final quoted price for your property in full. We also appoint a solicitor for you and pay all legal fees.

How do property cash buyers work?

At WeBuyAnyHome you will be involved in every step of the property selling process. The journey will be 100% transparent and you will never be left confused. Here’s how we work…

Fill in our enquiry form

To start the process off, either call us directly or enter your details into our short online enquiry form. Filling in our enquiry form won’t take long, we just need some simple details from you – including your accurate, up-to-date contact details and your property address. You’ll then be contacted by a member of our experienced buying team to discuss your property and our process in detail.

Making an offer

Within 24 hours of submitting your enquiry, WeBuyAnyHome will give you a call to take some more details on the property and determine its true market value. During this conversation, we’ll discuss your ideal timeframe for selling, as well as answering any queries you have regarding the process. Based on our own market knowledge, the details you have supplied, and our desktop valuation using third party tools such as Land Registry and RightMove Plus, we will make you an initial cash offer for your home – which will be the best possible price we believe we can pay for your property. If you’re happy with our initial offer, we will send it to you in writing, either online or in the post.

Get a final property cash offer for your home

After you have accepted our offer and filled in the necessary paperwork, we will arrange for a maximum of 2 RICS qualified surveyors/ valuers to assess your property and provide accurate value. At this point, we will also appoint you a solicitor from our panel. We cover the cost for both – you won’t pay a penny. We will then make a final offer based on the valuations of these valuations and the expertise of our in-house underwriting team.

The benefits of using cash house buyers

Opting to go with house buyers who pay you in cash, like WeBuyAnyHome, is the fastest way to sell your property.

As an individual, selling a house usually involves tedious elements like arranging surveys, getting a mortgage in place and even dealing with chain breaks. All of which can prolong the already considerable amount of time a property spends on the market. With We Buy Any Home, we guarantee a fast and competitive house sale and take care of all the administration side – so you don’t have to endure any of these factors.

There are many companies that aren’t genuine cash house buyers

These companies will promise a fast house sale and then delay the purchase until they have arranged finance or sourced a buyer.

In the event that you need to sell your home quickly, for whatever reason, we guarantee that we can unlock the value of your property in an honest and efficient way.

At We Buy Any Home we pride ourselves on being industry-leading home buyers that provide one of the safest and surest property selling services. We can make an offer for your property within 24 hours and make the full payment within days, if needed.

What to look out for when using a Cash House Buyer

As the UK’s number one cash home buyer, and a fully regulated member of The Property Ombudsman scheme, we are proud to offer a transparent and fair property buying service. 

Unfortunately, there are some companies within the cash buyer sector that do not follow the code of practice, instead, resorting to underhand tricks to secure a purchase. Thankfully, these types of companies are few and far between.

When choosing a cash house buyer, here are the things to look out for.

WeBuyAnyHome does not over-promise on the initial offer…

At WeBuyAnyHome, we are transparent about how much we can purchase your property for from the start. We make sure our customers are aware that, whilst we cannot offer full market value, what we can offer is a guaranteed sale in the time frame you want, with none of the stress or uncertainty you’ll experience on the open market. That’s why our customers rate us as “Excellent” on Trustpilot.

Never trust a property buyer that gives a cash offer for your home at full (or almost full) market value. Certain “sell your house for cash” companies will make an unrealistically high offer on your property as a way to win your business and tie you into a contract. They will then reduce the offer later down the line, once your onward plans have been secured.

WeBuyAnyHome does not use delay and stall tactics…

At WeBuyAnyHome, we complete your sale in the time frame you want – you just pick the completion date and we’ll work to it. The quickest we buy your house for cash in just 7 days! 

An untrustworthy cash buyer property company will intentionally delay the sale of your property. They may choose to drag the sale out for months on end, until you have all your onward plans tied up, then drop the value of your offer in the hope that you have no option but to accept it.  

WeBuyAnyHome don’t lock you into an “option” agreement…

Some cash buyer property companies are eager to tie you to restrictive terms, principally asking you to sign an “option agreement” on your property. This means they place this option on the Land Registry, locking you into using their service, even if you find a better offer elsewhere. They rely on customers to not understand the implications of this, and so use it to strong-arm a sale at a price you aren’t happy with.

At WeBuyAnyHome, we never ask you to do this. We have a very simple contract that states our commitment to you, and that if your offer value drops by so much as a penny (should your formal RICS survey uncover any unforeseen defects) you are totally free to walk away. In addition to this, we guarantee to beat the price of any genuine cash house buyer.

The National Association of Property Buyers

WeBuyAnyHome is founding members of The National Association of Property Buyers. In 2013, as one of a small group of companies, we were determined to improve standards in the fast property sale industry. Therefore, it was decided that all NAPB members should also register with The Property Ombudsman (TPO).

All NAPB members follow the stringent professional standards outlined in the TPO’s Code of Practice. WeBuyAnyHome believes that self-regulation and strict observance of the Code of Practice, including the dispute resolution process, allows us and other NAPB members to provide a trustworthy and secure quick house sale process.

As NAPB members, WeBuyAnyHome also belongs to The Property Ombudsman’s Redress Scheme. This means we are committed to providing a completely transparent, honest and fair service to all our customers selling their home to us.

Are all cash house buyers trustworthy?

Not all cash buyer property companies are responsible, honest and reliable like WeBuyAnyHome. There are a number of companies peddling buy your house for cash scams – but how can you spot a cash property buyer who may not be legitimate?

Accreditations

  • Check whether they are registered members of the National Association of Property Buyers (NAPB)
  • Check whether they fully regulated members of The Property Ombudsman Scheme (TPO Scheme)

WeBuyAnyHome is a founding member of the NAPB, and is fully regulated by The Property Ombudsman.

Cash funds

  • Ask the cash home buyer to provide evidence that they are purchasing the property with their own funds
  • Request evidence that they are purchasing the property directly, without relying on third parties such as mortgage lenders

As the UK’s largest cash house buyer, WeBuyAnyHome has the funds to purchase your property directly, and don’t rely on any chains, or third-party lenders. 

Market Value

  • Be cautious if your cash buyer offers you market value for your property. It is not possible for a genuine cash property buying company to offer 90-100% of the market value of your home, and they will no doubt drop the offer later.
  • If a cash house buyer claims they can offer you full market value, ask them how they make money as a company, and whether the offer of your property will likely be dropped. 

At WeBuyAnyHome, we provide a genuine and realistic offer from the start. We make it clear to all our customers that we cannot pay market value, but that we can offer a certified sale with a completion date of your choosing. 

Companies house

  • Find them on Companies House – you’ll need their registered trading name, which you should be able to find in the Terms and Conditions on their website. Have a look at how long they have been trading. 
  • Find out who the directors are and do your research on them. Use Google, LinkedIn, and any other useful sites to learn more about their history.
  • Find their offices and ask yourself: “do they look like an authentic company?”

WeBuyAnyHome are based in the heart of Mayfair, London, and have been trading for 14+ years, making us not only the biggest cash house buyer, but also one of the longest running property cash buying companies in the UK. 

Cash house buyer reviews

  • Check their Trustpilot and Google Reviews. How many negative reviews are there? 
  • Be aware that other review sites (such as Feefo) only display customer reviews that the company has requested. These sites don’t show the whole story.

WeBuyAnyHome is rated “Excellent” on Trustpilot, and has 4.3/ 5 stars on Google Reviews.

Listing properties elsewhere

  • Have any reviewers mentioned spotting their property on a property portal site, such as Rightmove or Zoopla?
  • Search for your cash house buyer in Rightmove or Zoopla – if the company is listed on there, then they are not a genuine cash buyer purchasing your property directly, and cannot guarantee you a sale.
  • Check property portals to ensure they aren’t advertising your property online. If they are, and your property is marketed for less than full market value, this will go on record and will devalue your property

At WeBuyAnyHome, we have the funds to purchase your property directly, and can provide evidence of this to any homeowner wishing to sell their property to us. 

RICS Qualified Surveyors/Valuers

  • To sell your property, a survey must be completed to ensure there are no undiscovered defects. Your cash home buyer should cover the cost of this.  
  • Only RICS qualified surveyors/ valuers should be used to assess your property. If this is not the case, your cash property buyer may be affiliated with an estate agent in order to conduct potentially biased valuations.

At WeBuyAnyHome, we only ever use independent, RICS qualified surveyors/ valuers to assess your property, to ensure complete transparency. 

Check the contract

  • Read through your contract to check if the company could apply any unfair penalties or restrictions on your home.

At WeBuyAnyHome, we have a very simple contract that clearly states our obligations to you.

“If you want a guaranteed sale for your property and are considering different cash buying companies, make sure you do your due diligence. Unfortunately, there are a lot of less than ethical companies out there who claim to be buying properties directly with their own funds, when in fact they are acting as a broker and trying to sell your property on to a third party. The above is a very useful guide for how to spot a disingenuous company and avoid wasting your time on a sale that may take far longer than promised or may not even happen at all.”

Cash home buyers FAQs

That’s simple; we’ll either put the property we have purchased on the market straight away, renovate the property if needed and then put it back on the market, or we will rent the property out. As a business, we do of course need to cover our own buying and selling costs and make some sort of a profit on the purchase, which is why we’re unable to purchase properties for full market value. We provide a guaranteed, quick and hassle-free sale and the trade-off is that you potentially could get more for your property if you were prepared to wait it out on the open market, where there are no guarantees.

People choose to use a cash house buyer for all sorts of reasons. Some people may require a cash sale to avoid repossession, or to help themselves out of financial difficulty. Often, couples who are filing for divorce will choose to use a cash buyer for the speed, to avoid a house sale dragging proceedings out.

At WeBuyAnyHome, many people use our service to sell an inherited property, are looking to relocate, want to go travelling or simply want to downsize. For many, we are a preferred alternative to the open market due to the efficient, guaranteed and stress-free service we deliver.

Like other cash home buyer companies, unfortunately, we can’t pay full market value. However, UNLIKE other cash-buying companies we can pay 80% to 90% of full market value and also have our Best Price Guarantee – which means that we always guarantee to beat any genuine offer another company makes you.

We’d love to pay more. In addition to covering the costs of running our business, as a company we pay much higher stamp duty than the average buyer would – and we have the cost of selling the property on, renovating it or renting it out. If we were to pay full market value, we’d quickly go out of business and then would no longer be able to provide the alternative selling solution that we do.

It is of course completely up to you at what point you consider using a cash house buyer, however, if you’ve been on the market for a while with very few viewings and no offers, or even lots of viewings and no offers, it may be a good idea to consider an alternative solution for selling your property.

You may also want to consider using a cash house buyer if there is an issue with your property which makes it unmortgageable, such as subsidence or Japanese knotweed.

As we’re a cash buyer, we’re still able to buy properties with these sorts of issues, and as often the cost of repairing the problem would far outweigh the potential benefit of selling on the open market, in the majority of cases you’d be better off coming to us straight away.

We never ask for any payment, upfront or otherwise, nor should any other “sell house for cash” company. We don’t charge a penny for our service and we even cover your legal costs.

On the rare occurrence that an offer has to change (for example if the survey detects a major defect to the house that was not previously known) then you can withdraw from our service totally free, even if it’s by a single penny!

If the offer hasn’t changed, and you have simply changed your mind, then a small charge may be incurred, depending on the resources and time we have spent on your property sale up to that point. We work on a case by case basis, and rest assured that we are very considerate to each person’s circumstance. 

We ask that you sign a simple contract, stating our obligation to purchase your property from you at the agreed upon price. Should our offer change once we receive the RICS survey results (if, for instance, it revealed an extreme case of subsidence) then you are free to walk away from us.

Yes. As a genuine cash buyer, we can provide evidence that we have the funds to purchase your property, should you request it.

As a genuine cash house buyer, we purchase your property directly. Depending on the type of property, its location and its condition, we will either sell the property onwards or rent it out.
