How do I know if I am getting the best price for my home?

We will always make you the highest cash offer possible for your property right from the start. If, however, you believe you have been made a higher cash offer from a reputable competitor company, tell us, and we guarantee to try and beat it!

There are some unscrupulous property buying companies who will initially offer a high price to secure your interest and then offer a lower price once you have agreed on a deal, usually at the point you are about to exchange and complete your sale. We believe this is a deceptive practice and do not condone it.

We support efforts to stamp out these scams and close down the companies who practice it

What if I am in mortgage arrears or facing repossession?

Act now! We can help stop the repossession by talking directly to your mortgage company and let them know we are in a position to buy your property fast for cash. If your property is about to be repossessed, it may still not be too late for help. As we have cash in the bank, we arrange a solution that suits you and your creditors, but we do advise you to contact us as soon as possible.

How much time does the process take?

As cash buyers for many years, we have learned over time that the quicker we can buy a property the happier everyone is. We have unlimited funds to invest in property, and as such we will make you an offer within 24 hours. After that, the entire process can take between 7 – 14 days to complete. That said, we are more than happy to discuss your individual needs, whether it’s a faster or a slightly slower sale you require, we will work to your specific timescale.

If I choose to sell my home to fast property buyers like you can I change my mind later on?

Selling your home fast is, by its very nature, a rushed process. We understand that decisions can sometimes be made in haste when there are extreme circumstances involved. The initial offer we make is on a no-obligation basis, so you don’t need to worry if your initial “yes” later turns into a “maybe”.

If you’re unsure about proceeding, we’ll be here to answer your questions honestly, and we will never pressure you into doing something that you’re not entirely comfortable.

If I sell and need to change the moving out date, can I do this?

We offer complete flexibility when it comes to the timeframe for your house sale. We will adjust the process to suit your circumstances. We understand that things might change, so we are committed to being flexible about the completion date.

At Flying Homes, we pride ourselves on delivering the very best customer service on the market. If your circumstances change during the house sale process, we encourage you to contact us to discuss alternative arrangements. We only want to buy homes from owners when the arrangement suits both parties.

What scams or pitfalls are there to consider when selling to a cash property buyer?

We are proud of our honest and fair approach when buying homes from their owners. However, some of our competitors do not share the same ethos. There are several quick sale scams to be aware of before you enter into the process of selling your home.

  1. Inflated initial valuations from cash house buyers

    Rogue companies may overvalue properties to persuade owners to choose them over the competition. Once the proprietor has signed on the dotted line, which often involves a hefty valuation fee, the value changes at the last minute in some instances. An inflated estimate will also give the home buying company some room for negotiating a discount.

  2. Last-minute offer reductions

    Last minute price drop. There have also been several cases of quick house sale companies reducing their offer just before completion. These disreputable firms do this in the hope that the owner will accept the reduced offer, given that the process is so close to its conclusion.

What do you mean by a “cash buyer”?

A cash buyer means just that. We have unlimited funds available to buy any property immediately without having to wait for a mortgage or other types finance that can lead to further delays
