When Anette and her husband found their dream property, they were desperate not to lose it to another buyer. Quick Move Now was able to guarantee them a quick house sale, enabling them to secure their onward purchase!

The vendors of the property we were purchasing were emigrating to Australia, so were looking to secure dedicated buyers as soon as possible.

Left wondering who would buy my house in a short time scale, I started searching online for companies that buy houses.

Quick Move Now came up and after talking to one of their property consultants and checking their credentials, I knew they were a trustworthy, professional property buyer.

How to make sure you are selling your home to a genuine cash house buyer! – The truth behind companies that claim to be cash house buyers and scams to be aware of…

If you have a property that you’re trying to sell and are hoping for a quick sale, companies who claim to be cash house buyers may sound like an attractive prospect, but what exactly do you need to know about cash home buying companies? With so many companies online claiming to be property cash buyers, it can be difficult to know who to use and more importantly, who’s genuine.

Not all cash home buying companies are what they seem! At present there are more than 100 UK organisations claiming to be able to buy your house quickly.

These companies will often make statements like “We can offer you 100% of market value” and “Genuine cash offer” or “We can buy your house in 7 days”.

These declarations are often lies to entice you in! In actual fact, there are currently only three companies in the whole of the UK that have the cash funds to buy houses on a regular basis, of which Quick Move Now is one!

So who are these rogue house buying companies?

You might be asking yourself ‘what does a company have to gain by claiming to be genuine cash house buyers, when they don’t have the funds to buy my house?’

In essence, these companies act as lead generators. They will either use your details to sell onto a genuine cash house buyer who has the funds to buy, or they will refer you to another arm of their business, which is normally an online estate agent. Because of this, when dealing with these companies, you will never get any certainty on price or completion dates.

How to avoid being scammed…

There are some general rules you can follow to make sure you are dealing with a genuine company that will actually buy your house and not just sell on your details or tie you into an unfair contract.

Before selling your house to a cash property buyer, we strongly advise you do the following:

Look at their Finances

Genuine house buying companies will have a balance sheet to prove they buy houses. You should expect a genuine home buying company to have an annual turnover in excess of £4 million and a current balance of at least £1 million to put them in a position to make instant purchases.

How do you look at a companies finances? You can use sites like Companies House to research a company’s financial credentials. A credible house buying company should also be willing to display their financial situation on their website.

Alarm bells should be ringing if a company is unwilling to divulge this information upon request!

A genuine house buying company will never ask you to pay any fees!

Avoid any company claiming to be a professional home buyer that tries to charge you a fee at any stage of the buying process. A genuine cash buying company will be purchasing your property at a discounted rate, in return for a fast, reliable and hassle-free house sale. They should also absorb any legal costs associated with the house sale like the survey, Energy Performance Certificate and solicitors fees.

Never sign a contract or option agreement!

A genuine home buying company will never tie you into a contract. ‘Option agreement’ is a term we hear a lot. Option agreements are contracts to sell your home to a company for a set price. These contracts are purely for the agent’s benefit. By signing the contract, you will be legally tied to that particular company for a set amount of months, but the company is not legally obliged to buy your house!

The only paperwork you should need to sign when selling your house to a genuine cash house buyer will be when you exchange contracts (just like a traditional house sale).

Read their customer testimonials

Companies who buy houses for cash should have plenty of real customer testimonials available. However, there’s a risk that some companies may create fictitious reviews, so it’s important to ask questions and do your research!

If a company has 20 reviews in a month but their balance sheet states a turnover of under £4 million, this clearly shows they are not buying directly!

Here at Quick Move Now we pride ourselves on being totally transparent. Our company details are freely available online. We provide detailed evidence of our history, track record and details on our company accounts. We understand that selling your home in this way is likely to be an unfamiliar process, so we want to set your mind at rest that you are dealing with the right home buyer.

Remember, it is your house, your sale and your future! Look into all the options, ask lots of questions and make sure you opt for the service that will work best for you!

Quick Move Now is the UK’s original and largest home buyer. Because we have been in the quick house buying industry since the beginning, we have seen lots of companies claiming to be ‘property buyers’ come and go! Beware, not all house buying companies are what they seem…

If their financial credentials don’t stack up but they’re still offering me a quick cash purchase, why shouldn’t I use them?

If the cash house buyers that you are considering using don’t have the financial credentials to back up their claims, they’re likely to be either a small-time investor, a lead generation business or a broker for investors. In each of these cases, it is likely they’re planning to purchase your property using a mortgage, after tying you in to a contract.

The need to access mortgage funds means they will not be able to purchase your property in the quick timescale promised.  It also means that the sale is no more guaranteed than selling your property on the open market. They get a property for less than market value, but you don’t get any of the benefits of selling your property to genuine cash house buyers.

Quick Move Now can buy any house, at any value, in any location! If you’re interested in selling you’re house for cash and would like a FREE, no obligation cash offer from Quick Move Now, simply complete the online form below or call us FREE on 0800 068 3366
