Buy My House Fast Companies
Buy My House Companies (also known as house buyers or property buying firms) have been in the press recently for allegedly offering customers a poor deal. Many that offer to buy your house today fast for cash or ‘we buy any house’ are apparently offering clients between 65% and 70% of market value. Many buyers are accepting these low offers and selling their homes for much less than they are worth without researching the house prices properly, but you can get more for your house by speaking to Flying Homes, on average 94% of full market value.
Many sellers think that public bodies may be interested in purchasing their home as evidenced by google searches such as ‘council buy my house’ but invariably even if this was the case, it’s unlikely that you’d get a great price. Local councils just don’t have the cash these days to buy houses. Your best bet is to sell a house using traditional methods such as estate agents or even auction houses. If it’s a quick sale you need then obviously using a fast sale company such as Flying Homes, can get you started on the house sale ladder.
Investor House Buyers
Flying Homes has access to many national homebuyers, investors who buy property nearer to the full market value, check out properties that these property buyers have bought and you will see the percentage of market value they paid (around 94% of market value). Compare this to other house buying companies or property buyers who only offer 65 to 70%!
Buy My House Quickly
Buying or selling a property today can be a complicated process but Flying Homes tries to simplify this by only dealing with reputable house buyers and serious property investors who have been financially qualified by our partners. Our house sellers are ‘motivated’ to sell, many ask us to buy my house quickly, but invariably we can get them more by involving our property buyers and investors. Many of these investors are experienced and buy houses every day, or buy on behalf of a property buying organisation. Indeed many of them will be going to the property investor show usually in October every year in London.
The main thing to remember is to be realistic on house values. Many of our property buyers have cash for homes and don’t need to rely on a mortgage, so if you are thinking will an investor buy my house then it really is possible particularly if it’s in good condition and priced to sell. It really doesn’t matter where you are in the UK, we can help, so get an online quote from Flying Homes today and find out more!
Many ‘buy my house’ for cash scams involve dropping the house sale price agreed at the last minute, often the day the sale of a property is to be completed. This is definitely frowned upon and whilst not illegal, is unscrupulous and considered sharp practice. Another trick is for companies that promise ‘we buy houses’ to enlist the help of a RICS valuer to shore up their valuation figure.
Whilst a Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) valuation is definitely desirable to have on a property, it doesn’t mean that it is guaranteed to be in the best interests of the house seller, as generally ‘who pays the piper’ must be taken into consideration. Only a independent valuation instructed and paid for by the customer is likely to be most representative as to the value of a property.
An imaginary example of how a quick house buyer could manipulate a RICS surveyor’s report to their advantage is below:-
House Buyer agrees price for a property at say £75,000, however using information from sold house prices and other price comparison methods, (such as looking on Rightmove for similarly priced properties), the property on the open market is generally considered to be worth £100,000.
The House Buyer then gets a letter of instruction addressed from the homeowner to the RICS surveyor together with a cheque for the cost of the survey and sends to the surveyor who carries out the survey. Simple, right? It appears from a compliance view that the homeowner has gone out and instructed a surveyor himself.
The valuation should come back at circa £100,000. BUT the surveyor finds out about the sale agreed at £75,000 from the customer or from the House Buyer, and the surveyor values it at only £75,000.
Why doesn’t the surveyor value it at more, I hear you ask? Because no surveyor worth his salt will value a property more than it is being sold for.
Any company using this type of sales tactic should be avoided at all costs. Flying Homes deals with many property buyers who buy houses quickly for cash, but the best method of working out how much your property is worth is to check sales of similar properties historically and what’s on offer currently for similar properties for sale.
Buy My House Reviews
Good buy my house ‘reviews’ are understandably thin on the ground as most fly by night companies or individual house or property buyers probably don’t take the time to seek out customer reviews of their services; probably because the know anyway that they’ve not done their client a great service. This is especially the case if they have only paid 65 to 70% of market value!
An easier way to weed out the companies to avoid is to ‘google it’ and read as much as you can. If a company is receiving many complaints, even if they are not upheld, then generally that tells you something! Some housebuyer companies have has lots of complaints registered at trading standards, mainly for last minute price dropping (gazundering, mentioned above).
