They say moving house is one of the three most stressful things you’ll ever do, so it’s not surprising that when people find the property of their dreams it is often the idea of having to sell their existing property on the open market that deters them and makes them think twice about moving forward.
Many people are unaware that there’s a simple and straight forward alternative to the lengthy and often stressful process of selling your property on the open market through a high street or online estate agent but, for many, a cash home buyer is a great alternative!
There are many advantages to using a cash home buyer instead of selling your property on the open market. Because a genuine cash home buyer will purchase your property directly with their own cash funds, there will be no viewings to arrange and no estate agents to negotiate with. What’s more, the better, more reputable cash home buyers will even pay your legal costs, so you’ll have no solicitors fees to pay, and will time the sale of your property to tie in with when your new home is ready to move into, so there’s no worry of the chain collapsing or your buyer pulling out, and you don’t need to get stressed out about whether everything will come together in time for the move.
The convenience of a cash home buyer is a great option for people in a wide range of situations. Perhaps you’re relocating for work and need a speedy sale, maybe you’ve found your dream home and don’t want to miss out to another buyer, you may be going through a relationship breakdown or divorce and are keen to make a fresh start as soon as possible, or perhaps you’re facing unexpected financial difficulty and need to access the equity in your property as quickly as possible. Whatever your situation, a cash home buyer can make your move quick, easy, guaranteed and hassle-free.
So, how do you ensure the cash home buyer you’re thinking of using is a good one? Here are our top tips:
- A genuine, reputable cash buyer will not try to charge you any fees for the service (the company will make their money from the discount they apply in order to make you a cash offer, so you shouldn’t need to pay any fees)
- Don’t tie yourself in to a company until you’ve formally accepted an offer – a company that tries to tie you in before telling you, in writing, exactly how much they’re going to pay you for your property is a company not to be trusted
- A genuine cash home buyer will have a substantial amount of cash available at any time and a turnover of several million
- Any company that is worth using should have customer testimonials readily available – the best way to find out whether the company are trustworthy is to read independent reviews from other people who have used their service previously
