Good house buyer Feedback. We got a few quotes from them and one was to sell quickly and the others in a couple of months. We were happy with the service and wish them well. Kimmie
One of the better companies that buy houses! It was quick and easy and I got the price I needed. Big thanks to Charlie for being so patient when we changed our moving out dates. All in all a painless experience! Tracy
Sell Your Home Quickly to The UK's Leading Cash House Buying Group!
Many happy clients over many years!
If you sell to other cash property buyers or us, then you can expect to get anything from 75% to 95% of the market value. There is no simple calculation, or one size fits all approach. Each property buying company or 'sell house fast' operator is different. However, the longer you hold on to sell, then depending on your circumstances, the more you can expect to receive.
Selling your home for its current market value is always possible depending on your selling timescale.
We are national property buyers, we buy homes all over the UK, in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. We have experienced, expert valuers based in all UK locations. If you are happy with our valuation, we can process your house sale from start to finish. If you need a fast sale then we are here to help. As with most quick UK property buying companies, We currently don’t buy property outside the United Kingdom.
We will, however, buy any house and in any condition. We buy run down houses, ugly houses and houses that have been struggling to find a cash buyer only, for some time. It is worth noting, however, that the condition of a property will directly affect its market value.
Whether you own a run-down bungalow, a decrepit semi or a dated apartment, we’ll professionally assess your home and provide you with a fair offer based on its current market value. From Land’s End to John O’Groats, we buy any house in absolutely any condition.
There are no costs or upfront fees involved in the sale of a home with Flying Homes. We make our money from buying your home at less than it’s full value and reselling it to other quick property buyers or on the open market at a higher price. If you sell your house fast to Flying Homes, then we’ll account for all conveyancing and legal costs, even if you need to sell quickly to stop your home from being repossessed, etc. There are no long contracts; some companies that buy houses quickly operate using option agreements, but we don’t work this way if you sell your property to us.
Do other property buyers charge upfront fees which I’ll lose if I don’t proceed with a sale?
Yes, some home buyers will charge you a valuation fee at the very start of the process, often with the promise that it’s refundable or knocked off the price they offer you. However, other, less reputable firms will renege on this promise so get everything in writing if you agree on a quick sale.
Our property buying process ensures that you don’t have to do any of the hard work that is usually involved in the sale of a home.
The process involves four simple stages:
1. We gather as much data on the property as possible.
We start the data gathering process by talking at length to the homeowner. We ask questions about the local area, its amenities and other issues such as transport links. We then take the time to discuss the house in detail with the owner. We like to know about special features that might add value, as well as a brief history of the property.
We have a selection of customer reviews on our website which can be found here. We also have reviews on Trust Pilot and Reviews.co.uk as these are good places to start as they allow customers to rate their experience and level of satisfaction. ‘Money Saving Expert’ has a lot of information which you can read too.
There are several ways to sell your home quicker than would normally be the case. Most homeowners in the UK still turn to a traditional estate agent as the general feeling is that they have local knowledge and a track record of selling similar homes. Unfortunately, even the very best agents can’t speed up what is a long and tedious process.
There are internet estate agents that can make the process a little faster, but perhaps not soon enough. There is, of course, the option of going it alone, and putting your house up for sale yourself.
The average time it takes to sell a home on the open market is three months and that’s without delays caused by legal issues and any problems further up the property chain. If you need certainty, maybe because of an impending repossession or a requirement to relocate for a new job, this delay may be unacceptable.
There is, however, a faster alternative.
Flying Homes can, in the right circumstances, buy a house in less than a fortnight. We can buy your home, at a pre-agreed price, directly from you. Don’t worry about property chains, upfront fees or legal issues. We take care of everything leaving you to plan for your future.
Other methods of selling fast include traditional or online estate agents who can attract a cash buyer or property investor who can buy quickly. Auction Houses are useful too, but you will get much less.
Some house buying companies register with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and this organisation regulates them. It’s wise to check that a company is genuine, You’ll find Flying Homes listed at Companies House. Some house buying firms join ‘The Property Ombudsmen’ too and are bound by their rules. Telephoning a business is an easy way of checking; you should be able to speak to a real person about the sale of your home. Finally, performing some online research into the house buying service should give you an idea of the reputation a company enjoys.
A quick search on the Internet will tell you that we are a reputable company with years of reliable service in the UK real estate market. We are determined to offer the best possible price for each home we value. However, if you receive a higher valuation from another reliable house buying service in the UK, we promise to beat it!
Homeowners use quick house sale companies such as Flying Homes for a broad range of reasons. Here are some of the most common:
Getting a new job, retiring or starting a new relationship can sometimes involve relocating to a different part of the UK at short notice. We can buy your house quickly, so you can concentrate on making last-minute arrangements for your future.
As well as being highly stressful, repossession adversely affects a person’s credit rating. Individuals threatened with repossession and who have no method of paying their arrears use property buying companies to free up the cash they need in a hurry.
Selling to a homebuying company, just like selling through an Estate Agent, or any other way can be fraught with problems. There is no definite pattern. Some unscrupulous property buyers who offer 'sell house fast' services use sharp business practices such as dropping their offer at the last minute and are to be avoided.
