Estate Agents vs Cash Homebuyers Companies
  • Free cash offer within minutes, no legal fees, any location.

The service provided by Estate Agents has not changed for decades. When Estate Agents are competing for your business, they tend to offer a marketing price for your property: this eventually creates a bigger problem for you as it makes your house less competitive on the market and takes you longer to sell your property. With a high marketing price, you will inevitably have to drop the price after months of trying to sell your house.

So what are the main advantages of using a cash buyer like

  • We don’t charge any fee
  • We take care of the legal side (no solicitor fee)
  • We base our valuation from RICS qualified surveyors and valuers

So what is the downside you’re asking?

We take a percentage of the value of the house. Any professional home buying company would typically take at least 20% of the market value of the house. It is important to notice that some home buyers will be promising you 90% to 100% of the market value. Those numbers are fraudulent. There are a number of costs that a cash buyer occurs when purchasing your property (stamp duty legal fees etc). In essence, any serious home buyer would not be able to pay the 100% value of your house, as they would not get a return on investment. This is just a technique for those companies to get you involved with them when eventually they will offer you considerably less at the last minute.

Here is a list of what to look out for, for fraudulent cash buyers:

  • They request that you pay a fee for the valuation of your property.
  • They offer to pay close to the full market price for your property.
  • Make a false claim that they are true cash buyers when they will need funding. So they won’t be able to make a deal quickly for you.


So what to look for when using a cash buyer company?

  • All the fees are covered
  • Can finalise the deal within 7 days
  • Part of the Property Ombudsman
  • We are part of the National Association of Property buyers
