British Home Buyers & National Homebuyers Reviewed

How do quick sale services from national home buyers work?

Services from UK wide house buyers work for sellers who need a fast offer and a quick sale of their property in as little as seven days. Often sellers have unsuccessfully tried different estate agents to sell their home and now require a different sales process. Buyers are usually property investors used to purchasing property at an auction where speed is the norm and houses sold at the drop of a hammer. However, auction property is sold immediately with a purchaser unable to change their mind, (this is often the preferred route for repossession property). Still, with property buyers, you can usually change your mind.

If your house is in the process of being repossessed, then contact a fast property buying company straight away, as they can help stop the repossession by giving you an unconditional offer to secure a quick property sale. Once a mortgage company has a copy of the proposal, then they may decide to stop the repossession from allowing a deal to proceed. Remember if threatened with repossession then seek independent advice as repossession law may be different in Scotland as opposed to England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

A homebuyer is continually on the lookout for cheap property for a variety of reasons:-

  • Many have large property portfolios and have an investment strategy which dictates that they buy and rent out many houses each month.
  • Some of these property buyers are building companies needing to be kept busy with renovation or refurbishment projects. Therefore speed for them is of the essence when buying houses.
  • Many buyers act as agents and buy homes for property portfolios for larger companies, again, which have a property purchasing agenda and timescale to follow.
  • Time is money, and if a house purchase drags on for months, then buyers may invest their money elsewhere and purchase a different property.

So you see, if you are a home seller, then you need to appreciate just how quickly you’ll receive an offer to purchase your house when a fast home buyer or investor is involved. Before a property buyer proceeds with the purchase of your property, they will need to assess what your house is worth. Usually, they can do a desktop valuation on Rightmove or Zoopla coupled with the Land Registry sold house prices for price paid data. Once a value has been established, then they may make you a guaranteed offer for your house.

The price you agree to sell your property quickly for cash is usually the amount that you will receive. Traditionally no hidden costs or extra fees apply, therefore helping you to sell your property quickly with the minimum of fuss, and they will work within a timeframe to suit you for selling your home fast.  Enter your postcode above, with us, and get a sale of your property agreed now.

Flying Homes’ comments

The amount offered for a property is entirely dependent on the property’s market value, often much less than if selling on the open market.

National Homebuyers may charge for their legal and solicitor fees, (check with them); they will also pay some of your legal costs subject to terms and conditions. No additional hidden fees or charges (such as marketing), apply. All expenses incurred in any house sale are explained in the initial offer.

National Homebuyers pros

National Homebuyers guarantee to buy any house, useful if you’re struggling to sell because your property needs repairs or upgrading, or is in a poor location.

They are one of the premier fast house buying companies with lots of experience and an excellent overall rating/review which you can read online.

National Homebuyers cons

As with probably all fast property buying companies National Homebuyers offer a percentage of a property’s value, this could be from 75% to around 85%, depending on a variety of factors. In our experience, a desirable house in a good location will sell much quicker than an undesirable property in a poor area, so it might pay to check with local estate agents before considering a fast property buyer.


The service from National Homebuyers works for some sellers but not others. Months of additional mortgage payments, abandoned sales and stuck in endless property chains from a conventional sale via an estate agent, offsets the initial higher cost. If you’ve decided to sell using their service, then make sure you’re happy with all the paperwork, have it checked by your solicitor. Their size, experience, rating and presence in the market, making them one of the more successful organisations to use.
