  • Do You Need all Cash within Two weeks? If not then our Assisted Sale Purchase pays you any equity in your house on Day 1 and the remainder is settled within 3 months.

    Different to many of our competitors who may just be able to offer a straight cash sale we also have a variety of other options available. For example, our market leading Assisted Sale is a popular choice and allows us a bit more time to achieve a great price for your home, often the price we can pay is around 10% more than the highest cash offers available.

    • Essentially it’s an exchange with a delayed completion The amount we agree to buy your house for is set in stone and we can exchange quickly – In as fast as 7 days.

    • The completion date is also set in stone on exchange – Typically 3 months away.

    • You receive an upfront payment of the agreed purchase price on Day 1 – This is a payment of the value of all the equity in your home.

    • We take over the responsibility of the property on exchange – You have to move out.

    • Completion is guaranteed and further supported by our cash fund.

    • You typically receive 10% more than the highest cash offer quotes available.

    There are other favourable options available, so please take the time to contact our purchasing team today. We usually offer both a quick cash sale quote and an Assisted Sale quote. If you don’t need all the cash in a particularly fast time i.e within a couple of weeks and you have up to 3 months available until you need to fully complete then our Assisted Sale offer allows you to achieve both a guaranteed sale and an amount that's closer to the market value of your home.

    At Direct House Buyer we wish to provide our sellers with a offer that’s as near to the 100% market value as possible. For that reason it’s important to take care with any price reductions you make so that you don’t unwittingly affect the true value of your home. It’s difficult to imagine that your house value could be affected through your own actions but it can.

    Usually by the time our customers contact us their properties have been on the market for longer than they initially anticipated and quite often they would have already reduced their asking price. This is usually through the suggestion from their estate agent who realistically has little power to attract new buyers. They ultimately want to sell your home and don’t always have the sellers best interests at heart. If you express to your agent that you wish to sell your house quickly and in turn they suggest that you reduce your asking price they probably won’t caution you that this will in effect lower the market value of your house.

    In practice it’s a surveyors job to determine the market value for your home and even if the surveyor truly believes that your house is worth more than what you are asking, unfortunately they can’t value your house at a higher price than what is advertised and in their opinion it’s current price is the market value. At the same time even if you take the house off the market or put the price back up it’s the surveyors job to check Rightmove Plus which shows a historical database of listed prices and once again they won’t value your home any higher than the lowest price it was recently advertised at. The same applies to a mortgage lender, they wouldn’t wish to pay more for a house now than if they could have bought at cheaper price and limited their exposure a few weeks back, they would establish the previous listed price as the current market value particularly if it didn’t sell at that lower price. Here at Direct House Buyer we want to give you as high a offer as possible so that you will be happy to sell to us and happy with the price you achieve. All our offers are based upon your homes current market value so please contact us first.

    Contact us for a fast house sale that suits your need to sell your property in a hassle free way. Speak to one of our advisers to discuss a straight cash sale. This type of transaction can complete very quickly and to a timescale that suits your situation. Similar to other industry leaders our cash offer will not be as close to the market value as some of our other options that are available. Typically, cash offers are usually around the same mark throughout the industry, however we will always endeavour to provide a better quote than others can even for our cash offer deal. If you don’t necessarily need to complete within a couple of weeks and have more time on your hands then we have other options available such as an assisted sale which has a pre-agreed price, exchange and then a slightly delayed completion (typically 3 months) which will result in you receiving a higher price much closer to the market value of your property.

    How Fast are Homes Selling on The Open Market

    The Rightmove House Price Index is the most common resource used for finding out what the average UK house price is, which currently stands at £308,692 and surprisingly this figure is down £656 since last month. The market is showing a decrease of 0.2% which is the first recorded monthly fall this year. Notably estate agents currently have the highest amount of properties being offered for sale since 2015 and many people are commentating that this shows that it is a buyers market. There is still uncertainty in the air with the appointment of a new prime minister but it seems that the added supply to the market is forcing some sellers to reduce their price. Interestingly, it’s the high end value properties in London which have brought the average house price down and it is discussed that those who can afford too are postponing their need to move as there seems to be a lack of buyers at the higher end of the market.

    For those who are needing to sell their house fast Rightmove is also a helpful resource for finding out how quickly homes are selling in your region and shows a good indication of the current sentiment in your local market. A summary of the fastest moving regions through to the slowest for July can be seen in the table below. Recent figures show that Scotland is still the fastest moving region taking an average of 43 days to sell a home, one day quicker than last month. The North East is still the slowest moving region taking an average of 76 days to sell a home, which is surprising seeing that it’s next door to Scotland. London is still the second slowest region taking 67 days on average but positively that's 5 days quicker than last month. The difference in the speed of sales between London and Scotland is still quite surprising.

    1. Scotland – 43 Days

    Many people wonder the what term We Buy any House actually means. This term is used throughout the property buying industry but does come with some terms and conditions. Of course all companies could make some sort of offer on any property as essentially everything has a price so in being able to make offers on each and every enquiry is entirely possible. However, some companies endeavour to buy any home more than others. Various reasons that are usually associated to the property itself could stop an offer being made, such as:

    -Structural issues that could cost more than what’s feasible to repair, essentially writing off a property. We come across property’s everyday that need remedial work and that’s’ fine. For example if your home requires further damp proofing before a surveyors inspection this is something that we can factor into the deal. But if the property requires major structural work that costs more than the amount that you will receive after paying any mortgage off, then unfortunately we wouldn’t be able to help in this example. Here are some examples of what to look out for in a survey report

    -The property is unmortgageable and this could be for a variety of different reasons Your home may have a short lease that can’t be renewed or the property may need renovation works to pass a surveyors inspection.

    Your property location – Off course you can’t physically change the location of your house and if you feel that it’s the location of your property that may be making it difficult to sell then that may not be a problem for us. Our team of house buyers are experienced in purchasing property throughout the UK and we will always endeavour to make a fair offer even for the most rural locations. Our we buy any house service means that we endeavor to buy any house throughout England, Scotland and Wales. We are able to consider problem properties that for various reasons can't be sold through an ordinary house sale e.g. your property may require structural works before it can become mortgage-able again and therefore requires a cash buyer. If your in a sticky situation that needs specialist attention then it's worth speaking to our specialist to see how we can help.

    What’s your Timescale – When speaking to us one of our first questions will be how quickly do you need to sell. If you require a particularly fast sale then we will endeavour to offer a quick cash purchase using our own cash fund and complete in the timescale that you require. However, if you do have a bit more spare time on your hands then we will be able to make you a more competitive offer that’s closer to the full market value of your home.

    If you wish to sell your house fast for near market value then please ask one of our advisors about the Assisted Sale product. Most of our competitors solely offer a straight cash sale which can often be very fast in terms of timescale but may also not be so favourable in terms of the agreed sale price. Therefore, if you do have a bit more time on your hands and are able to give us a few months to fully complete the sale then we will be able buy your house fast for an amount that’s far closer to the market value. Essentially our Assisted Sale product is an exchange with a delayed completion, we will also provide you with an initial cash sum that will allow you to move on, in return you will give us a few months to fully complete the sale of your property and after this timeframe you will receive the full pre-agreed remaining balance.
