    Top Reasons for Selling Your Home in a Hurry

    Reasons why you might want to sell a property quickly

    We’ve found that many customers who want to sell their homes quickly and without any fuss often do so because of a sudden change in their circumstances. It makes sense if you have the time to sell conventionally over a longer period for more money. However, circumstances sometimes dictate that a quick sale is necessary so that we can help with a cash purchase of your home.

    We consider each of the reasons listed below. Just follow the link for a detailed guide on any of these topics.

    1. House Repossession
    2. Divorce or Separation
    3. Job Relocation/ Emigrating
    4. Bad tenants or reluctant Landlord?
    5. Retirement – trading down
    6. Inherited Property
    7. Downsizing
    8. Fixer-Uppers
    9. Job Loss

    House repossession

    Stopping the repossession of your home is essential, even if you have some equity in your home and believe that the sale proceeds will cover the mortgage or any secured debts. Try and sell your home yourself, even if it’s to a quick sale Company like us. If your house is repossessed and sold at auction, then there may be a shortfall you will have to pay, so take control and stop the repossession. For more information, read our stopping repossession guide.

    Divorce or separation

    Selling your home because of separation or divorce can be a very traumatic time. If you can sell via an Estate Agent, then you’ll get more for your house, but we recognise the trauma and stress living in the same property as an ex-partner or spouse can cause. Often in these circumstances, a fast sale of your home may be the preferred option, which is where we can help. We’ll but your home fast and deal with all parties sensitively and sympathetically. For more on selling your house as a result of divorce or separation, please read our guide.

    Help for couples splitting up can be found on the BACP website.

    Job relocationĀ or emigrating

    Sometimes Employers have to move their Employees quickly to other parts of the UK or even abroad. If you need to relocate quickly, you may need money released immediately from your home’s sale to take advantage of a new start, possibly in a different country. We can help in these instances with a quick purchase of your home. If you are emigrating, then this may present similar circumstances to buy another property abroad or free up the cash as part of moving away. Whatever the reason, job relocation or emigrating, we can help. Selling quickly because of emigrating or job relocation read our handy guide.

    Bad tenants or reluctant Landlord?

    Do you have bad tenants? Maybe you are an accidental or reluctant Landlord? Maybe you have been unable to sell your property, bought or rented another and rented out your old home, and it hasn’t worked out? Letting a property can be a complicated and stressful process; get the wrong tenant, and what seemed a good idea can suddenly turn into a nightmare with unpaid rent and damage to your property. Don’t worry; help is at hand from Flying Homes. We can buy any property, with or without tenants, and fast. Let your problems become ours; contact us today for a free valuation and quote to buy your home. Read more about selling with bad tenants here.


    How do you view retiring, winding down and enjoying the grandchildren or twiddling your thumbs without the routine purpose that work provides? Your friends may be predominately your work colleagues, so often, retirement can become a lonely time. One thing that’s often true and that is retirement can be stressful! Thrown together 24/7 with a partner/ spouse brings new challenges! Often your income will reduce too, which is where we can assist. If downsizing because you’re retiring, we will buy your home quickly for a cash sum, and you can buy something else smaller, suiting your purposes better and free up much-needed monies for your retirement.

    Inherited property

    Inheriting property from parents or a relative can be a much-needed boost to your finances. Sometimes, it doesn’t always work out to be very easy due to other beneficiaries owning the property. Squabbles or disagreement can arise, the property may be the subject of probate, and suddenly, what was a welcome inheritance rapidly becomes a nightmare! Avoid the arguments and stress of disposing of inherited property by selling the quick sale specialists in a snap to us. Read more about selling an inherited property here.


    Downsizing usually occurs when homeowners’ children have flown to nest, and the family home and garden is too big for parents. The bonus is that selling the family home to buy something smaller and more manageable usually means surplus cash after the sale, which can be put towards retirement. If you’re downsizing and want a quick sale, then call us today. Read more about downsizing here.


    Fixer-uppers are houses in poor conditions that need renovating or, at the very least, a lot of work carried out. Time is money, so you need to decide the price you put on your time and whether you have the skills required to carry out renovation work, or whether you’ll pay a high price for contractors to do the work for you. Sometimes it’s best to sell and let someone else do all the hard work! Learn more about fixer-uppersĀ here.

    Job loss

    Losing your job is never a good thing unless you have something else lined up straight away. Often job loss is accompanied by moving house too, due to relocating elsewhere to somewhere more affordable. Maybe it’s time to get a new start in a different Town or Country, depending on where any new job takes you. Read more on job loss and your options here.
