Operating since 1998, Quick Move Now is the UK’s original and largest cash property buyer.

Having bought over 6,000 properties across England and Wales, we have an unmatched track record when it comes to buying houses for cash.

Unlike other cash house buyers, Quick Move Now has the funds available to buy direct. That’s how we are able to offer a quick and guaranteed cash house sale.

What are the benefits of selling to a cash home buyer?

For more than 100 years, the process of buying a home in the UK has remained largely unchanged. When selling a property many people feel they have little choice but to continue to use the slow and cumbersome system of selling on the open market.

In 1998, we began offering a cash home buying service. Buying houses with our own cash funds, we are able to offer a quicker, simpler and easier way to sell a property.

Benefits of selling your home to a cash home buyer:

  • Quick house sale
    We can buy a property in as little as 7 days
  • Completion date of your choice
    You are in complete control of when the sale completes
  • Guaranteed sale
    No chance of falling through
  • No property chain
    Putting you in a strong position for your onward purchase

The process in detail

How does selling to a cash home buying company compare to selling through a traditional estate agent?

Quick Move Now Estate Agents Brokers, posing as Cash House Buyers
(Sadly, this happens all the time!)
Do they buy houses, regularly, for cash? Yes No No
Is it flexible, can I pick the timeframe and change it if I need to? Yes No No
Is it guaranteed? Yes No No
Are my details safe? I only want to deal directly with the property buyer. Yes Sometimes Sometimes
Will the price I get be fair and, if my circumstances change, can I walk away without being charged? Yes Sometimes Sometimes

Home buying companies can offer a quick and convenient alternative to selling your property with an estate agent. However, despite several campaigns to impose tighter restrictions, the cash house buyers industry remains unregulated. In order to avoid falling victim to any rogue traders, there are some scams to avoid and red flags to look out for.

We are flexible and fair

Our cash buyer service offers you amazing flexibility. Whether you need to complete in 7 days because a previous sale has fallen through, or are moving to a new build home that will be ready in 8 weeks, we will work to your timescales and have the money in your account when you need it.

We can also even transfer cash funds to you before completion to assist with the upfront costs encountered when moving to a new house.

As a business, it is impossible for us to pay full market value.

However, our customers choose Quick Move Now because they believe the guaranteed cash house sale we are uniquely placed to offer is a more attractive option than the hassle and uncertainty that comes with selling on the open market.

A genuine property buying company will always pay below market value, in exchange for a no-risk, guaranteed house sale, where you are in complete control of the timescales.

For many customers, the reduced hassle, speed and certainty made selling to cash house buyers, Quick Move Now their first choice.

Others have used our offer as a ‘backup’ for added security and peace of mind when selling on the open market. They understood that a formal offer from us meant we would be able to step in if their sale fell through or somebody else let them down.

Case study – Cash House Buyers, Quick Move Now saved our dream home

Mr Smith and his partner had found their dream home, but were struggling to sell their flat.

We acted quickly to have the flat independently valued at no cost or obligation to Mr Smith. Following conversations with several local estate agents, we made a cash offer the next day.

With our offer on the table, they were able to meet the developer’s tight timescales for completion and managed to negotiate a £20,000 discount on their new property. They also saved £5,000 on estate agents and solicitor fees.

Within 3 weeks they had bought and moved into their new home, with none of the usual hassles and delays of selling on the open market. All for an £8,000 net cost.

Discounts explained

Cash buyers will always need to buy your property at a discount. We can pay up to 85% of full market value for properties, with our current average cash offer being at 82.5%. The discount we apply is not fixed. We assess each property on an individual basis and always offer the most money we can for your house.

Any cash buying company claiming to be able to buy your house at 90% and upwards is not a genuine property buyer, as it is not possible to cover costs at this level. Instead, they are likely to be posing as cash house buyers while acting as a broker or lead generator for an estate agency.

Because the quick house sale industry is not regulated, it can be hard to establish who the genuine cash buying companies are.

As a genuine home buying company, there are many overhead costs we need to take into consideration:

  • Stamp Duty

    Every company must pay an additional 3% stamp duty on top of the current rates for each band. Cash property buyer businesses are included in this. For example, on a £230,000 property, we pay £9,000 to the government.

  • Legal fees

    We cover all legal fees. This includes conveyancing for both parties. There are no fees or contracts for using our cash home buyer service. Any cash home buyers that charge you a fee or ask you to sign a contract is a red flag you are not dealing with a genuine home buying company.

  • Business overheads

    Business overheads – as a genuine house buying company, Quick Move Now has an office, staff, and advertising costs.

  • Resale risk

    Once we have purchased your property, we take on the risk of market fluctuation. If prices fall due to the economic or political situation, it is our issue.

  • Costs of ownership

    All ongoing costs relating to ownership of the property are paid by Quick Move Now, including maintenance, utilities, council tax, estate agent fees to re-sell the property, insurance and bank interest.

  • Renovation costs

    Quick Move Now will manage and pay for any work that is required on the property.

A genuine cash house buyer will be able to purchase your property in as little as 7 days.

  • How quickly can Quick Move Now buy my house?

    When you sell your house to Quick Move Now, you are in complete control of the timescales. We can buy your property in as little as 7 days, but most of our customers choose a completion date around 3-4 weeks after accepting our formal offer. This means they have plenty of time to organise removal services and tie the sale in with their onward move.

  • How much will Quick Move Now pay for my property? Is there a set discount?

    Any company that is able to buy your home for cash will need to buy at a discount. We incur significant costs that a buyer on the open market would not have to pay, so are unable to buy your property at full market value.

    Our additional costs include:

    • Addition 3% stamp duty – Any company purchasing a property is required to pay an additional 3% stamp duty on top of the usual stamp duty rates.
    • Legal fees – We pay all legal fees associated with the purchase of your property.
    • Business overheads – We are a genuine, reputable business. We have an office, staff and other business costs to cover.
    • Resale risk – The property market can be unpredictable. When we purchase your property, we are always taking a risk that market conditions will change.
    • Property maintenance and management after purchase – Once we own your property, we are responsible for all maintenance costs. This includes things like utility bills, council tax and garden upkeep. We will also need cover the costs associated with reselling your property on the open market.

    Before we make you a formal cash offer, we work with local estate agents to carry out a full assessment of your property and the local market. This assessment will include an independent property valuation, which we will use to assess your property’s saleability. We can pay up to 85% of market value, but will always make you the best offer we can.

  • Will Quick Move Now ever change the cash offer they make?

    Any formal cash offer we make is valid for 7 days. If those 7 days elapse, we would need to do a re-appraisal of your property and the local market conditions. If there haven’t been any significant changes to your property or the local market, your original offer would still be available.

    Any property we buy will undergo a full survey before exchange of contracts. The only time we may be forced to alter the price we offer would be if a serious structural issue was flagged as part of the survey. However, as the survey takes place very early on in the sale process, if it does show a significant structural issue that would affect the value of the property, you would be free to walk away without incurring any cost.

  • How will I know whether Quick Move Now’s offer is a fair one?

    Honesty and integrity are at the core of our company values. As a founding member of the National Association of Property Buyers (NAPB), we are committed to offering our customers a transparent and convenient alternative to selling on the open market. All of our company processes follow the Code of Practice for Residential Property Buying Companies, as set out by The Property Ombudsman.

    All of our formal cash offers are based on independent valuations carried out by two local estate agents and we are always happy to talk through the process with you, explaining how we calculated our formal offer.
