So if it’s too hard to sell my house fast at 100% market value, how near can I get?
Even through an estate agent it’s unlikely you will receive 100% market value even when selling your home online, because many people will expect to negotiate and agree some sort of price reduction, however small. Take into account agents’ fees too and you’ve lost a few percent. So, no, if you want to sell your house fast at 100% of market value that is probably unattainable.
The fact is that you will probably receive around 70% of sale value from most other quick sale organisations if you are lucky. But don’t despair, look at the actual prices of homes sold of many of Flying Homes customers selling recently with our help. Many of our clients have averaged 94% to 95% of the sale price.
Don’t Accept 70% of Sale Value From Quick Property Buyers
Many national homebuyers and quick house sale businesses simply buy property cheaply, so cheap in fact sometimes well below what is a fair price. Usually these companies buy at 65-70% of sale value and then ‘flip’ your home to another buyer. Flipping is a term much coined in the heady heights of the property boom, where properties would be purchased often off plan, and then resold to someone else even before the properties had been built, earning the seller a nice cash profit. Now ‘flipping’ seems to be making a bit of a comeback according to some newspapers.
Signs of a Housing Market Recovery?
But really there is no need to accept 65-70% of sale value in the current housing market even if you want a quick sale of your home. There are more signs that the market is improving with Taylor Wimpey, one of the UK’s largest housebuilders reporting a significant improvement in the market (as reported in the Telegraph 7 July 2013), and the Express has also reported ‘soaring house prices’. However, these newspaper reports should always be treated with a little caution, as invariably they tend to overstate the actual position or jump onto prices soaring in one part of the country and not the other, (such as London and the South East property prices which seem to buck the trend).

Sell House Fast For Cash – Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Is it possible to get nearly full market value for my house or is it just a scam?
Answer: Market Value is the value of your home on the open market given a reasonable period to sell and exposure to a sufficient number of potential buyers. Online portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla can provide such a marketplace. MOST of our customers homes are marketed on these portals therefore getting 94% of SALE price for your home is not a scam. Whether the ‘sale value’ is ‘market value’ is open to interpretation but we believe that properties sold in this way are at ‘Market Value’ ie a fair refection of a property’s worth.
Many Flying Homes Clients’ have received more than 94% of the sale price of their home when they have used our service.
Question: Can you prove it, do you have any actual examples of customers getting 94% of sale price?
Answer: Of course check out our recently sold homes with actual addresses and the prices achieved, then check these with the Land Registry and Zoopla or Rightmove. Some customers received less than 94% of the sale price and some more, but on average it was around the 94% mark.
Question: What do other quick house sale companies charge and why, is 65 or 70% the norm?
Answer: Many other quick house buyers only offer 65 or 70% of your property’s sale price when they buy a house fast for cash, but it depends how quick you need to sell, there’s fast and there’s really fast, some have the cash to complete a sale in 24 hours, which is possible but unlikely. FACT, the more desperate you are to sell, the lower the price you will be offered for your home.
Question: Can a house really be sold in 60 seconds or do I need to wait longer than that?
Answer: Yes, possibly and no! Generally yes if it’s at auction, or if a buyer and seller meet and exchange contracts or sign a binding agreement for the sale of a property; then technically a sale is agreed but selling a house this fast is pretty unlikely.
If you were to ask any companies that advertise ‘sold in 60 seconds’ how many houses have you bought in 60 seconds then the answer is likely to be very very few or none. But sold in 60 seconds is a catchy marketing phrase designed to attract visitors, just like cash for homes, or national homebuyers etc. It is likely that sold in 60 seconds could mean that a sale is ‘agreed’ in 60 seconds!
Question: Can I really get cash for my home (cash for homes?)
Answer: No, not really. The idea of a buyer coming up your garden path with a wheelbarrow full of readies, is all a bit dell boy-ish. Again, technically it’s possible, but too many questions would be asked by the bank or solicitor of house buyer and house seller. Rules and regulations preventing this were introduced by the UK government to avoid money laundering by criminals, as in the past, investing in property was an easy way to launder money from the proceeds of crime.
Question Can I get a cash offer in 24 hours?
Answer: Yes, and many a house buyer will be happy to do this, although cash as can be seen from above is unlikely to be paid directly to you, but the ‘buyer may have cash in the bank and not need to rely on a mortgage, or maybe the buyer has an ‘overdraft facility’ whereby he can simply write out a cheque in full for a property without the tedious process of applying for finance.

I contacted Flying Homes a year or so ago. Although I didn't instruct them to sell my house immediately they were very professional and helpful. A few months passed by and after becoming increasingly disillusioned with my estate agent I gave Flying Homes a go. 4 weeks later my sale was agreed and we were exchanging contracts. I cannot thank them enough!
