Quick Move Now buys houses for cash and is the ONLY company in the industry that buys property fast using its own cash reserves, making it the only house buyer that can work to short timescales and offer a 100% guarantee that the sale will go through.

Other house buyers rely on third party investors, brokers or securing mortgages, all of which take time and offer no guarantees that the house sale will happen.

How do Quick Move Now work out what the market value is for your property?

Valuations are obtained from local, independent estate agents and their appraisal, together with research into the local property market and prices, forms the valuation price.

Our aim is to make you the best possible offer based on the accurate market value of the property. To do so, agents who are local so that they have knowledge of the surrounding property market and independent so that they will give impartial advice.

Do Quick Move Now carry out surveys before making an offer?

As standard with most property purchases we will instruct an independent RICS survey after acceptance of our offer. This structural survey is arranged and paid for by Quick Move Now.

Our formal offer is made without a survey having been completed. The offer is subject to satisfactory survey though and if you choose to accept it, the survey is arranged and paid for by Quick Move Now.

Can Quick Move Now buy my property if it is tenanted?

We can make a formal offer on a tenanted property, but it would need to be vacant in time for completion.

There are several scenarios in which we will not be able to provide an offer for your property. These are…

  • If the property is unmortgageable and we will therefore find it difficult to sell it at a later date
  • If we are unable to accurately ascertain market value
  • If the property has sitting tenants or does not come with vacant possession
  • If there are any other factors that may place an unduly high risk on us being able to resell the property
