How much do fast house sale companies pay?

As a business, Quick Move Now is unable to pay full market value when you use our fast house sale service. However, there is no fee to use the service. We are open and upfront about our discounts and why they are necessary. We appreciate some house sellers will need to achieve full market value for their property. If that is the case, we always recommend that selling via the open market will be your best route.

It is impossible for any genuine house buying company to pay 90% of full market value or more. This is because of the business costs incurred with every purchase. Any company claiming to be able to pay 90% or more is likely to be a broker. This means they won’t buy your property directly and cannot make you any guarantees about price or speed. If you’re looking for a fast house sale, property brokers should be avoided. Unfortunately, the fast house sale industry is not regulated, so there are some companies who make outrageous claims that they simply cannot back up.

The most common red flags we hear are:

  • I have to pay a fee A genuine ‘sell house fast’ type company would never ask you to pay any fees for their home buying service. We make money when we re-sell your property back through the open market. This is done at our own risk and expense.
  • I accepted an offer but when we got close the completion date they dropped their price If a serious structural issue is raised during the survey, this may affect the offer price. However, Quick Move Now would NEVER try to renegotiate our formal offer for any other reason, and certainly not based on any cosmetic concerns. The money you are offered is the money you walk away with, guaranteed!
  • The company can’t give me a guaranteed completion date Quick Move Now are experts in fast house sales. The quickest we have ever completed on a house sale was 24hrs from the offer being accepted! If a company is delaying a sale, this could be an indication they are trying to secure a third-party buyer.
  • I thought I was selling my house to one company, but now there’s another name I don’t recognise You will only be able to sell your house fast if the cash home buyer has the funds to buy it directly. If a company introduces another individual or company, or talks about having a bank of investors, they are basically brokering your sale to someone else. There are no guarantees on timescale or price, or that they’ll be able to sell your property at all.

  • How does a fast house sale to a homebuying company work?

    If you need to sell your house fast, a homebuying company can be a great option.

    We can buy your house in 4 easy steps.

    You can read more about how homebuying companies work here.

  • How fast could I sell my house to a homebuying company?

    A reputable homebuying company should be able to purchase your property directly in as little as a week.

    Most of our customers choose a completion date 3-4 weeks after accepting our formal offer, but wee can buy your property a lot faster than that if needed.

  • How much will a company pay for a fast house sale?

    Any company able to offer a fast house sale will buy your property at a discount.

    Homebuying companies can buy your house much faster than is possible on the open market, but they incur a number of costs that private buyers don’t. These include:

    • Additional stamp duty: Companies that buy properties are required to pay an extra 3% stamp duty on top of the usual rates.
    • Legal costs: We cover all legal fees associated with the purchase of your home.
    • Business costs: Like any business, we have significant overheads to pay. This includes our office, our staff and resale costs.
    • Property maintenance and management: After the sale completes, we take full responsibility for the upkeep and maintenance of the property. Things like council tax, utility bills, and garden maintenance all need to be budgeted for.
    • Market risk: When we purchase your property, we take on all the risk associated with reselling on the open market. We try our best to assess what we think your property might resell for, but the property market can fluctuate quickly. When we buy your property, we always run the risk that market conditions could change.

    In light of these additional costs, you can expect any genuine homebuying company to buy your property at around 80-85% of market value.

  • I need to sell my house fast. How will I know whether selling to a homebuying company is right for me?

    Honesty and integrity are two of our core company values. We will always explain the benefits of using our service alongside being completely transparent about the discount we apply when purchasing a property.

    We would always encourage you to explore the different options available too you and will be honest if we don’t feel our service is the right fit for your circumstances.

  • How is a homebuying company different to selling with an estate agent or by property auction?

    A genuine homebuying company is able to offer a fast house sale that cannot be matched by any other method of sale.

    Selling your house on the open market, with an estate agent, is notoriously unpredictable. Timescales are very difficult to control, especially when you’re part of a property chain, and unfortunately around one in three property sales will fall through before completion. If you’re working to a specific deadline or are in need of a fast house sale, the open market isn’t a great option.

    Property auctions do offer a more predictable timescale, with sales usually being required to complete within 30 days of the auction date. However, as the price a property will sell for is difficult to predict in advance, it can be very difficult to budget for your next move. It’s also worth noting that only around 70% of properties that go to auction actually sell.

    A reputable homebuying company, by contrast, will be able to offer you complete certainty on both price and timescale from the start. They will buy at less than market value, so it won’t be the right solution for everyone, but if speed and certainty are your primary concerns it can be a great option.

  • My house sale has fallen through – could selling my house fast to Quick Move Now save my chain?

    Yes, lots of our customers ask us to buy their property after their buyer has pulled out or step in to rescue a property chain that has collapsed.

    Because we don’t rely on mortgages or investors, we can buy your property in as little as a week. This means you’ll be able to proceed with your onward purchase as planned.

  • How can I make sure I get the best price for a fast house sale?

    We will always make you the best offer we can and will be completely honest and transparent about how we arrived at that figure.

    Unfortunately, not all companies are as trustworthy. There are companies who will claim to be able to offer much higher prices for your property in order to get you to sign a contract with them. Once you’re tied in, they will drop the price and threaten large exit fees and legal action if you try to sell your property to anyone else.

    At Quick Move Now, there are no contracts or fees for our service, so you’re free to walk away at any point. We always advise the public not to sign any sort of contract with a homebuying company and to thoroughly research the company before using them. You can get more advice on ensuring you use a reputable company here.

  • How can you guarantee you can provide a fast house sale?

    Whether or not a homebuying company can provide a fast house sale will depend on whether they’re buying with their own cash funds. Lots of companies claim to be buying your property directly, but are actually reliant on mortgages or investors, which means they’re unable to offer any certainty about price or timescales.

    Quick Move Now currently have £12million cash immediately available to purchase properties, so we can offer a speed and certainty that is unmatched.

    The best way to find out whether a company will buy your property with their own cash funds is to look at their company accounts. You can read more about how to do that here.

  • How quickly can I expect to receive the money for my property?

    We can provide a 10% deposit on exchange of contracts (as with a sale on the open market) if required, and the balance will be transferred to your bank account on the day the sale completes.
