What’s We Buy Any House About? How Can Flying Homes’ Service Help You?
Many people search for we buy any house because they need to sell their home fast. Getting someone to buy the house in the current market usually means you may have to use companies that buy homes fast but this does not guarantee you’ll get the best price for your home. Selling this way could cost you £££’s as many house or home buyers advertising these phrases etc will generally offer only 70% of market value or sometimes even LESS. Read our FAQ’s for more help and advice on this topic.
We buy any house but we want to get you on average 94 to 95% of sale price!
Flying Homes property buyers have paid much more than 65 or 70% of the sale price of homes, in fact much more than this, often in excess of 94% of sale price in the table here. This is usually far more than any other fast house sale company in the UK. They really do mean ‘we buy any property’.
Avoid the Scams
Many fast sale house buyers who promise ‘to buy any house AND pay more than 70% of value could simply be a ‘scam’, just to get you to contact them in the first instance. Once they have your details then they can use numerous ways to get you to sell your house or home to them for much less than it’s actually worth.
For example some property or house buying firms use a clever sales ploy of promising to pay full market value but will undervalue your home; i.e. you will be told that your house is worth less than it really is. This scam makes it appear that your house is being sold for nearly full value when this is clearly not the case!
So avoid these type of scams and deal with a reputable company such as Flying Homes and get a realistic value for your property, ie get more cash for your home, our buyers really can promise we buy any home quickly.
How the last minute price drop scam works
This scam works by the property buyer or quick sale company offering a high price for your home, probably 95 to 100% of it’s value, and then just before you are ready to exchange contracts or complete the sale of your home, they drop the price by 15 or 20% leaving you high and dry, and often financially committed to another property.
Our view and indeed that of many other reputable home buying firms is that this is an unfair practice. Some home buyers actively work this way, and whilst not technically illegal, ‘gazundering‘ is thought of as an unfair practice by the OFT and is certainly not condoned by Flying Homes. The OFT are working hard to close these loopholes and unfair practices.
Complaints About We Buy Any House Companies
This leads us nicely on to ‘complaints’. Yes there have been numerous high profile complaints, ‘buy house for cash scam’s, one of which has been reported in the press, ie Anne Baker who lost up to 40% of the value of her home by selling to a quick house sale company. Fortunately these type of complaints seem to be few and far between and with the OFT clamping down on the cowboy quick house sale firms that operate unfairly like this, then hopefully this will become a thing of the past. With some sort of regulation or guidelines just around the corner, then hopefully quick sale customers won’t follow the victims of sale and rent back (SRB).
We Buy Any Home, Any Condition and Any Location
It’s true, we can find you a buyer for your home fast and it doesn’t matter the condition.
