The Process of Speaking to us to Sell Your Home
Get in touch with us today and a member of our experienced purchasing team will be able to provide you with a variety of different offers that can be tailored to suit your needs. Our offers will vary according to a few different variables:
Your property location – Off course you can’t physically change the location of your house and if you feel that it’s the location of your property that may be making it difficult to sell then that may not be a problem for us. Our team of house buyers are experienced in purchasing property throughout the UK and we will always endeavour to make a fair offer even for the most rural locations.
What’s your Timescale – When speaking to us one of our first questions will be how quickly do you need to sell. If you require a particularly fast sale then we will endeavour to offer a quick cash purchase using our own cash fund and complete in the timescale that you require. However, if you do have a bit more spare time on your hands then we will be able to make you a more competitive offer that’s closer to the full market value of your home.
Do You need all the Cash Right Now?
Different to many of our competitors who may just be able to offer a straight cash sale we also have a variety of other options available. For example, our Assisted Sale is a popular choice and allows us a bit more time to achieve a great price for your home. Different to your traditional estate agent we cover all fees and costs, we will agree a date of exchange (usually within a couple of weeks) and a guaranteed purchase price. On the day of exchange we will provide you with a upfront portion of the cash from the agreed purchase price and we will take over all the running costs of your home. We will then continue to sell your property on the open market, which allows us to achieve as much for your house as possible. Once your property is sold you will receive the remainder of the agreed price. If we can’t sell your property on the open market within our agreed timescale (usually within a few months) then we will fully purchase the property ourselves at the pre-agreed price using our Cash Fund.
There are other favourable options available, so please take the time to contact our purchasing team today.
Important House Selling Tip
At Direct House Buyer we wish to provide our sellers with a offer that’s as near to the 100% market value as possible. For that reason it’s important to take care with any price reductions you make so that you don’t unwittingly affect the true value of your home. It’s difficult to imagine that your house value could be affected through your own actions but it can.
Usually by the time our customers contact us their properties have been on the market for longer than they initially anticipated and quite often they would have already reduced their asking price. This is usually through the suggestion from their estate agent who realistically has little power to attract new buyers. They ultimately want to sell your home and don’t always have the sellers best interests at heart. If you express to your agent that you wish to sell your house quickly and in turn they suggest that you reduce your asking price they probably won’t caution you that this will in effect lower the market value of your house.
In practice it’s a surveyors job to determine the market value for your home and even if the surveyor truly believes that your house is worth more than what you are asking, unfortunately they can’t value your house at a higher price than what is advertised and in their opinion it’s current price is the market value. At the same time even if you take the house off the market or put the price back up it’s the surveyors job to check Rightmove Plus which shows a historical database of listed prices and once again they won’t value your home any higher than the lowest price it was recently advertised at. The same applies to a mortgage lender, they wouldn’t wish to pay more for a house now than if they could have bought at cheaper price and limited their exposure a few weeks back, they would establish the previous listed price as the current market value particularly if it didn’t sell at that lower price. Here at Direct House Buyer we want to give you as high a offer as possible so that you will be happy to sell to us and happy with the price you achieve. All our offers are based upon your homes current market value so please contact us first.
