How to sell your
house fast

At We Buy Any Home we know how difficult it is to sell a house quickly, which is why we have found a way for homeowners to speed up the process. We know you have a lot of options for how to sell your house fast, but we believe our service is the most efficient service you’ll find out there. 

Local Estate Agent

Selling property through traditional estate agents is a common but often slow approach, with the process potentially taking up to six months, if not longer.  While estate agents with strong track records can facilitate sales, their timelines may not always meet the seller’s need for speed. Additionally, there are notable costs with estate agents:

  • Estate agents charge 1-3% of the sale price as their commission.
  • Costs for legal services and property refurbishments add to the overall expense.
Save Money

We Buy Any Home

Quick sale companies like We Buy Any Home offer a distinct advantage for those looking to sell properties fast. Cash buyers operate with the primary goal of purchasing properties quickly, typically having the necessary funds readily available, which eliminates delays associated with mortgage approvals or chain breaks.

The quickest way to sell your home is with We Buy Any Home. We can purchase your house within seven days with no charges. Receive a free quote within 24 hours with absolutely no obligations.

Key aspects of this approach include:

  • Transactions can be completed in as little as 7 working days.
  • Get best price possible based on the market and your property value.
  • No risk of chain breaks or fall throughs with guaranteed cash sales.

Online Property Portals

Selling a house through online property portals offers a more DIY method, letting you lead your own sale. The success of this method heavily depends on market conditions and the seller’s efforts in marketing the property. It’s a route that can save on estate agent fees, but it requires significant personal involvement and has its own set of costs:

  • Sellers must bear costs for listing, professional photography, and other marketing
  • The process demands considerable time, including handling visits and negotiations.
  • The effort and time required can be substantial, making it less appealing compared to other options.
Save Time

A Slightly Quicker Approach

If your property is in poor condition or you cannot maintain or run the property yourself, an assisted house sale can be a great option. It basically involves selling to a company or investor at a pre-agreed price.

They will usually look to sell the house at a higher price once they can carry out refurbishments. You can sometimes receive a cash advance, which can help you with cash flow.

However, while you may not have to pay for the refurbishment upfront, the cost is usually deducted from the final sale price. Additionally, you’ll also need to wait for the refurbishment to be completed before the sale is finalised.

So, while you can get a buyer without the hassle of other options, you will still spend time waiting before you can get access to the cash from the sale.

So, while you can get a buyer without the hassle of other options, you will still spend time waiting before you can get access to the cash from the sale.

Auction

A Fast, But Not Guaranteed Approach

Auctions can provide a fast turnaround, with sales typically completed within 30 days of the auction date. This is definitely one of the quickest methods to get a house sold. But it’s not always guaranteed. If there aren’t enough interested buyers in your property, then you may not even be able to get past your reserve price.

Additionally, there are costs for auctions that you need to take into account. They will usually charge around 2% + VAT from the sale price. Again, that’s if you manage to get your property sold. If you don’t, that’s another 30 days wasted.

Estate Agents

The Traditional Approach

Selling through traditional estate agents is the most common approach but is often the slowest option available. The entire process can take around six months from the moment the property is listed to completion. Of course, this does depend on the location and the condition of your property.

Some estate agents may have great track records that can help get your property sold eventually, but the timeline is unlikely to suit you, especially if you’re looking to sell fast. 

Additionally, estate agents typically charge a percentage of the final sale price between 1-3% as their commission, which can equate to quite a substantial fee. But don’t forget to factor in the additional costs like solicitors or any refurbishments required to get the property sold. So not only is it a long process but quite costly too. 

Online Property Portals

The DIY Approach

Selling your house through online property portals is another common approach home sellers take. The results can vary widely. If the market conditions are great and they are able to spend the time marketing the property, they can generate interest. However, a lot of it comes down to luck and effort. So, if you want a quick sale with this approach, expect to put the effort in.

While you can save on estate agent fees with this method, you will still have to pay costs for listing, professional photography, and other marketing expenses. Another big cost that is hard to put a value on is time. You may have to deal with unqualified ‘buyers’ who will waste your time with multiple visits and negotiations. While saving some money may seem attractive at the time, there are better options available.

Cash-Buyers

The Quickest, Most Guaranteed Approach

Cash-buying quick sale companies operate with one purpose in mind: to purchase property. They usually have cash readily available to invest in properties, so there’s no waiting around for mortgages to be accepted. At We Buy Any Home, we fall into this category of a cash buying quick sale company. We purchase properties across the country, and as we do this as a business, we’re not looking for issues that private buyers might have in mind. We also offer the very best price we can for every property by looking at the market value. We work fast too, able to purchase properties in just seven days.

If you need to sell a house fast, there’s no other method that comes remotely close: We Buy Any Home is your best option.

Things to watch out for with other “sell house quick” companies

  • Unfortunately, not all fast sale property companies are responsible, honest and reliable like We Buy Any Home.
  • Some companies aren’t genuine cash buyers, but are actually cloaked estate agents who will continually delay your property sale until they have arranged finance or have sourced a buyer. These types of companies cannot guarantee a sale or a completion date.
  • At We Buy Any Home, we are a genuine cash house buyer who can purchase your property directly, within your chosen time frame.
  • We are proud to be founding members of the National Association of Property Buyers.
  • Ensure any cash buyer you work with has proof of funds and is self-funded, without relying on third party funding that may cause chain breaks or delays in sale.
  • Other sell house fast companies may offer you full market value at the beginning whilst also promising a fast sale.
  • Sadly, these offers are dishonest; they are only provided to win your business, and will inevitably be reduced at the last minute, sometimes days before completion when you may feel backed into a corner to accept it. That is totally unethical.
  • At We Buy Any Home, we are always transparent, and make it clear from the start that we cannot offer full market value for your property.
  • We pride ourselves on being honest and upfront with our customers, and are fully regulated by The Property Ombudsman.
  • Some quick property sale companies may force you to place restrictions on the title of your property in order to accept their offer – meaning you are locked into using them no matter what even if you are unhappy with the price drop they inevitably hit you with. We never ask you to do this, and you never should.
  • At We Buy Any Home, we have a very simple contract that states our obligations to you, and also that if our offer should decrease by even a penny after your formal RICS survey, then you are totally free to walk away.
  • What’s more, we offer the best price guarantee, and promise to beat the price of any genuine fast home sale company.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Selling Your House Fast

How quickly do most houses sell?

This depends on how you choose to sell the property. On the open market through estate agents and online property portals, expect to wait at least six months, while auctions have a turnaround time of 30 days.

With We Buy Any Home, the answer to how quickly most houses sell is up to you. If you need a sale in seven working days, consider it done. If you need longer, that’s not a problem either; the cash offer will remain guaranteed.

What is the fastest way to sell a property UK?

The fastest way to sell a property in the UK is through a cash house buyer like us at We Buy Any Home. We can complete a sale in as little as seven working days, which is pretty much impossible through any other method available.

Why is my house so hard to sell?

There could be a range of reasons that might make a house harder to sell. The biggest issue is due to a lack of demand. If your property is priced too high, requires more work than others, or is just not in a desirable location, you will struggle to sell your property. 

Cash house buyers can always make you an offer on any type of property, regardless of any issues. So, if you need to sell quickly, it’s a great option.

Get Free Cash Offer

What is the best day to sell a house?

The best day to sell a house can vary, it’s not an exact science. However, there is research which suggests that listing your home on a Thursday can help. This is because your property can generate interest and attention online throughout the weekend when many potential buyers have more free time for house hunting. 

However, with We Buy Any Home, you can contact us on any day of the week, and we’ll be ready to buy your house.

Why should I use a fast house sale company, rather than a high street or online estate agent, or an auction?

You should use a fast house sale company such as We Buy Any Home if you want a guaranteed fast sale that is hassle-free and doesn’t have any additional costs associated with it. In comparison to using a sell house fast company, selling your home via methods such as a high street agent or an auction has far more potential downsides. If you put your property into an auction there are no guarantees that it will sell (even at your reserve price) and there will then be a public record of your property not being sold for that price, which would decrease its value on the open market. With a high street estate agent, your property could be sat on the open market for months without any viewings, let alone offers, and the same goes for an online estate agent. Using a fast house sale company is the only guaranteed way to sell your house fast.

Do house sellers prefer cash buyers?

Yes, house sellers will usually prefer cash buyers, whether they’re a company or an individual. This is because a cash buyer can provide a quick and easy process to get the property sold. There are no delays in waiting for mortgages to be approved or other finance-related issues that can crop up.

Do houses sell faster than flats?

On the open market, houses will usually sell faster than flats. This is because there are more people looking to buy houses than there are for flats. Most people typically rent flats rather than live in them as a primary residence. 

At We Buy Any Home, we’ll purchase any type of property, including flats.

How will you value my property?

We take a multi-faceted approach to valuing any property. When you first get in touch, we’ll take some details on your property over the phone and will do a desktop appraisal by looking at property and area details using various online sources. We’ll use this information to give you an initial offer. If you’d like to move forward at this point, we’d then send three independent local estate agents round to value the property in person and confirm our valuation. Assuming their valuations differ to ours, we would take the average of the three and arrive at a final cash offer based on this.

Get your property valued today, with us you get a free cash offer meaning you can move sooner than you think!

How can I be sure I’m getting the best cash offer for my house?

However, with a cash house buyer like We Buy Any Home, we provide a guarantee with our cash offers, so as long as all the conditions are met, we will always complete a sale. Additionally, once you agree to sign your property then from that point onwards consider your house as sold.

In the very rare instance our offer has to change (for example if the survey finds subsidence) then you can walk away totally free of charge.

To get a free cash offer, we will only need the details about your property. However, when it comes to selling, we will need the usual documents, such as the title deeds.

The documents we require from you depend on certain factors, such as whether you are selling a house through probate, or divorce, or if you are the sole owner of the property. We have a dedicated team on hand to help you with any paperwork we need.

Do I need a solicitor?

When selling a property, a solicitor is required to conduct the conveyancing process – this is the process of legally transferring home ownership from the owner to the buyer. We will provide you with a list of recommended solicitors to keep the process as efficient as possible.

Is We Buy Any Home buying my property or is someone else buying it?

We are a genuine cash buyer, which means that we are buying the property from your directly, with our own funds. A genuine cash buyer doesn’t depend on any third parties, such as mortgage lenders, and is not involved in any property chain. Any genuine cash buyer will be able to provide proof that they have the required funds.

Could anything cause timescales to slip?

There may be some external factors that can cause a delay in our service. Examples of these are issues with the probate process, or if a solicitor is particularly slow acting (this tends to be when customers choose to instruct a solicitor not from our roster). Thankfully these issues are very rare.

Can conveyancing be done in 3 weeks?

If you are sourcing your own conveyancer, then it will depend on their availability. As many are often booked weeks or months in advance, it may not always be possible to be done in 3 weeks. Additionally, there can be delays during the conveyancing process, which can result in weeks of delays due to complications.

However, at We Buy Any Home, we work closely with solicitors who can help get the process completed efficiently.
