Estate Agents vs Cash Homebuyers Companies
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 webuyanyhome.com?
- You can conceivably receive the cash into your bank account within 7 days.
- You can sell your house quickly without the hassle of making it look pristine for possible viewings
- We take care of the legal side (no solicitor fee)
- We base our valuation from trusted local estate agents
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.

- All the fees are covered
