If you have been struggling to sell your home due to its undesirable location or poor condition Flying Homes is here to help you get a fair and accurate price for your property.
We don’t have a typical type or price bracket of properties that we purchase. We will be interested in your property whether it’s a flat, mid-terraced, semi-detached, bungalow, or detached house – we will ALWAYS make you our best offer.
As national property buyers we have experience buying homes all over the UK. From Lands End to John O'Groats our expert valuers are on hand to provide you with a valuation for your home and are happy to process the entire house sale from start to finish.
If you need a fast sale then we are here to help and can have a cash offer over to usually within a week of your first contact Flying Homes.
Unfortunately, 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We know that many homeowners hold back from selling their home due to it being in poor condition or heavily outdated. Costs of repairing or extensively updating a house can run into the tens of thousands of pounds, which of course will eat into any money you eventually get from the sale.
Flying Homes will buy any house regardless of the condition or décor, potentially saving you thousands of pounds that you may otherwise have lost.
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. Contact us today to see how we can help you.
We buy property all over the UK, including Northern Ireland and Scotland. We have a national team of property experts to help you complete all the necessary paperwork, once you are happy with everything.
One point to note is that there are legal differences when buying property in Scotland and as a result, our home buying process may change slightly. Once you make an offer to buy a house in Scotland, then a binding contract is entered into by both buyer and seller. Therefore a purchase may take a little longer as we have to be sure the property is free of any restrictions, loans, and is in good condition
With Flying Homes there are absolutely no hidden fees or upfront costs, and we cover all legal fees further into the buying process. After you receive a cash offer for your home from Flying Homes you have a no-obligation 30-day period in which you are not tied into anything and can change your mind at any point. In this period we also promise to beat any other cash offer made by another fast house sale company.
Why not use our free property valuation tool to see what your home is worth and then contact us for a cash offer!
Many companies that buy a house fast are genuine, some are part of a trade body with self-regulated, so scams are few and far between generally. The property industry while partly regulated via the Office of Fair Trading and The Property Ombudsman, is closely linked to financial services, banking and legal, as a result of the house buying/selling process. Mortgages, financial advice, and conveyancing are also heavily regulated, so you do get some protection.
Regulations currently in place do not give sellers enough protection from some of the scams used by house buying firms. For example, some buyers promise to pay the full market value for your house but then undervalue it in the first place. A promise to pay 80 or 90% of market value may appear healthy but not when the offer represents only 60% of the actual value. This type of scam makes it appear that your house is being bought for nearly the full value which is not the case!
The last minute drop in price scam (gazundering) works like this: The property buyer or quick sale company offers a high price for your home, probably 95 to 100% of its value. Then just before you are ready to exchange contracts or complete the sale of your home, they drop the price by 15 or 20% leaving you high and dry, and often financially committed to another property and unable to withdraw from the sale.
Our view and indeed that of many other reputable home buying firms is that this is an unfair practice. Some home buyers actively work this way, and while not technically illegal, gazundering is thought of as an unfair practice by the Office of Fair Trading and is certainly not condoned by Flying Homes. The OFT is working hard to close these loopholes and unfair practices.
Avoid these types of scams and deal with a reputable company such as Flying Homes. Get a realistic offer for your property, i.e., get more cash for your home, we buy any home quickly and for fair value.
Some forums such as Money Saving Expert discuss the pros and cons of selling your house fast and dishonest practices used by rogue quick sale firms. Rightly they are decried, but it seems that some of the comments are unfairly tarring all house buying companies with the same brush. There are many fair operators like Flying Homes, who treat their customers fairly. Independent reviews can be found on many review websites such as trustpilot and reviews.co.uk.
