Many of our customers search for house buyers because they need an answer to the fundamental question ‘how do I sell my house fast?’ Getting a property buyer to purchase your house in the current market usually means you may have to use companies that buy homes fast, but this does not guarantee you’ll get the best price for your home. Selling to just any cash buyer could cost you a fortune as many will only offer 70% of the market value or sometimes even less. Read our FAQ’s for more help and advice on this topic.
We will buy any home, but we want to give you more than any other property buying company!
Many property buyers promise to buy house at 100% value but actually pay only 65 or 70% of the sale price for homes. Flying Homes has often achieved in excess of 94% of the sale price for customers, usually far more than any other fast house sale company in the UK! Flying Homes property buyers really do mean ‘we buy any property’.
Avoid we buy houses scams
Scams are few and far between generally. The property industry whilst partly regulated via the OFT and TPO is closely linked to financial services, banking and legal, as a result of the house buying/selling process. Mortgages, financial advice and conveyancing are heavily regulated so you do get some protection.
Scams used by property buying companies
Having some regulation doesn’t protect sellers from house buying firms from promising to pay the full market value for your house but then undervaluing it. They promise to pay 80 or 90% of value, which may only represent 60% of the actual value! This type of scam makes it appear that your house is being bought for nearly full value when this is clearly not the case!
So avoid these types of scams and deal with a reputable company such as Flying Homes. Get a realistic offer for your property, ie get more cash for your home, our buyers really can promise we buy any home quickly.
How a last minute price drop ‘scam’ works
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 whilst not technically illegal, gazundering is thought of as an unfair practice by the OFT and is certainly not condoned by Flying Homes. The OFT is working hard to close these loopholes and unfair practices.
Complaints About House Buying Companies
Complaints are often unreported. Some of the ones that are and pursued by the offcie of fair trading and the like, have become high profile and picked up by the press. Anne Baker lost up to 40% of the value of her home by selling to a quick house sale company. Fortunately these type of complaints seem to be few and far between and with the OFT clamping down on the cowboy quick house sale firms that operate unfairly like this, then hopefully this will become a thing of the past. With some sort of regulation or guidelines just around the corner, then hopefully quick sale customers won’t follow the victims of sale and rent back (SRB).
We Buy Any Home, Any Condition, and Any Location
It’s true we buy houses in any condition, we can find you a buyer for your home fast, and it doesn’t matter the condition.

Buy houses review
I found this really useful. I did not realise how house buying companies can play around with valuations and drop the price at the last minute, these type of house buyers need to be reported
Thanks I found this really useful. I didn't realise just how little some companies offer and when I spoke to your staff they told me that I could expect much more if I could afford to wait a few weeks to get money in the bank,
Response: Thanks Anna, we strive to get our customers as much money as possible!
