If your situation fits one of the following, then selling for cash is a viable option

As we mentioned earlier, there are a lot of reasons why you might want to sell property for cash. The list below isn't complete but does cover the 4 most common reasons.

1. Financial Problems – these can range from imminent repossession to marital breakup or simply needing to raise funds for another purpose in a hurry.

2. Needing to Move Quickly – if you are part of a chain and stand to lose your dream home because your buyer has dropped out, deciding to sell your property for cash can keep things on track and let you continue with your plans.

3. Fed Up With Slow chain – today’s housing market means many houses wait for months or years before they finally sell. Some owners just don’t want to wait that long, or want to sell before the price falls further. Thus a common situation where people approach us is when they are caught up in a property chain. If you're looking for a houses for cash service HQS can help as we have the ability to purchase a property directly with our own cash in a very short period of time - it is possible to complete within a week if required!

4. Reducing Liabilities – this one is a big reason, especially since everybody got into the buy to let market. Landlords often want to reduce their portfolio size quickly, and sell empty or underperforming houses before they lose money.

Why it's worth enquiring about our risk free cash offer?

One increasingly common way of selling property for cash is to use a homebuying company like House-Quick-Sell®. Our services have always been around, but they have really come to the fore during the current economic crisis. Traditionally, we were a buyer of last resort after other ways of selling had been exhausted, but now we are increasingly becoming a viable first choice for home sellers.

The reason for this is simple

There are very few other buyers out there. The usual source of house buyers has dried up, as first time buyers can’t get onto the housing ladder and few can afford to move. There are even fewer buyers who are able to move quickly and complete according to your timescale, and do it without any hassle.

HQS offers all the things that the ordinary buyer can’t. Think about it, If you had to list out a perfect buyer, I’d bet you’d think of something like the following:

Pay with their own cash – Did you know 95% of so called "cash buying companies" actually are only middle men and rely on investors to pay for a property? This means the property sale is not guaranteed and can add all sorts of delays. HQS buy with our own cash thus ensuring a secure, fast sale.
Make an instant decision – most buyers go off to see other properties or have a think about yours, and take their time over it. We will tell you immediately whether we can buy your house or not. Best of all, our offers are 100% risk free.

Stick to their word – It’s often the case that buyers pull out at the least minute, upsetting all your plans. HQS stay committed and, once we ’ve said we will buy the property, we follow it through.

Give a fair price – just because you are wanting to sell quickly doesn’t mean you are desperate or should be taken advantage of. You can expect to be offered a price below the official valuation, but the discount will reflect the convenience of selling quickly and receiving cash for the property.

By completing quickly – how many buyers can arrange a mortgage and get searches done in just 7 days? The answer is very few, if any. Our sell house for cash service can complete in just 7 days if you need to, and as we have the cash waiting we don’t need to wait for finance. We also offer without the need for searches.

Pay your fees - when money is tight already, you don’t want to be paying out a chunk of the sale money in upfront legal fees, but no individual buyer will pick those up for you. Our cash buying service will pay for the legal and valuation fees and charge no commission.

We are the leading UK homebuyers, offering a risk free valuation to sell homes for cash. We have a no-pressure policy, once our offer has been presented to you we sit back and allow you to decide - at your own pace.
All your information is 100% confidential and it only takes a few minutes to enquire! Our property consultants can present you with a no obligation cash offer for your property within hours.
