“Thank you Direct House Buyer for making the whole process so simple”
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. Our we buy any house service means that we endeavor to buy any house throughout England, Scotland and Wales. We are able to consider problem properties that for various reasons can't be sold through an ordinary house sale e.g. your property may require structural works before it can become mortgage-able again and therefore requires a cash buyer. If your in a sticky situation that needs specialist attention then it's worth speaking to our specialist to see how we can help.
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.
If you wish to sell your house fast for its full market value then please ask one of our advisors about the assisted sale product. Most of our competitors solely offer a straight cash sale which can often be very fast in terms of timescale but may also not be so favourable in terms of the agreed sale price. Therefore, if you do have a bit more time on your hands and are able to give us a few months to fully complete the sale then we will be able buy your house fast for an amount that’s far closer to the market value. Essentially our assisted sale product is an exchange with a delayed completion, we will also provide you with an initial cash sum that will allow you to move on, in return you will give us a few months to fully complete the sale of your property and after this timeframe you will receive the full pre-agreed remaining balance.
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.
Selling your house can be an incredibly exciting time but it can also be a overwhelming burden to find the right buyer for the right price. There are countless different motivations as to why people need or want to sell their property. You may have bought your home as a starter home and now you’re ready for a bigger house for a growing family, or you have moved locations for work or love, maybe your dream house has finally gone on the market, or the cost of your mortgage is simply not affordable for you anymore. Whatever the reason might be for selling your house, if you need to sell it quickly or it has been on the market for a while and you haven’t had any potential buyers then Direct House Buyer can help. Direct House Buyer buys any house regardless of condition or situation.
We Buy Any House in the United Kingdom
If you are selling property in the United Kingdom, including Wales and Scotland, Direct House Buyer should be able to make you an offer. At Direct House Buyer we provide our clients with more than 6 different options for selling your house because we know that every situation is unique. Popular options include a straight cash sale directly, or we can use an experienced investor to purchase your house, and another popular option is to allow you, as the owner, to retain a portion of the equity so that you can actually make more money in the future from your property.
We understand that selling your property is a big decision and that you want to get the true value of your home when it comes to finding a buyer. If you have a property for sale in Scotland, Wales, or England and traditional methods simply aren’t working because it takes too long, offers are too low, or the market is too turbulent then we can buy your house and relieve you from the stress of selling. We guarantee the best offer available for your property’s location and condition.
We Can Buy any House Regardless of it’s Condition
Speaking of condition, if you are worried that you can’t sell your house because it needs to be renovated in order for it to be marketable then Direct House Buyer can help. We understand that houses aren’t built to last forever, they need frequent updating but sometimes people don’t have the luxury of time or money to update or renovate their house.
We know that people search for certain things when they are considering buying or investing into a property such as hardwood floors, updated kitchens and bathrooms, and great storage. Direct House Buyer will be able to buy your house even if it needs renovating to meet the demands of the market and we will revamp things such as painting and floors, replace carpets, fix structural damage, improve cabinet conditions, etc. We do all of this before the sale to guarantee that you get the most value for your property. Once we have finished the renovation we will personally have an independent RICS surveyor come and appraise the value of your home so that we can offer you a quote that reflects the true market price.
If you have a property in the U.K., including Scotland and Wales, regardless of the condition, Direct House Buyer can lift the burden of competition in the competitive real estate market and buy your house. Don’t fear that the physical or structural condition of your house makes it unable to be sold; Direct House Buyer will renovate your house so that it’s attractive to investors and you get the best offer possible.
What Does “We Buy any House” Actually Mean
The property market has evolved over recent years and many house buying companies have been enabling sellers to achieve the price that they want within a timescale that they require. Companies who say “we buy any house” are able to give sellers a quick alternative to the traditional methods of selling through the use of cash funds or creative methods such as a assisted sale (discussed below). Bottom line, they are able to speed up the selling process and provide a definitive level of service that estate agents can’t provide. Different to estate agents, house buying companies don’t act as a middleman, instead they are the end user and are therefore able to give definitive timescales and a fast sale if required. There is also less chance of a sale falling through because the seller gets to communicate directly with the buyer and doesn’t have to wait for their prospective buyer to sell their house first as there is simply no chain. We have found that most people who require a company who can buy any house, do so because they have given their home more time than was initially anticipated on the open market and have come to the realisation that a traditional estate agent will not be able to achieve a sale through their methods of advertising, The differences are listed below:
Different to a estate agent house buying companies usually offer:
- A straight cash sale using our own cash funds or private equity
- Creative methods such as an assisted sale (See Below)
- The ability to communicate directly with the house buyer
- A sale to a direct pool of investors
- Covering all fees and costs (These are included in the purchase price)
- The ability to buy any house within the United Kingdom including Scotland and Wales
- Carrying out renovations that may be required so that a surveyor can approve the property and approve a buyers mortgage.
- A fast sale with little hassle.
Sell your House for up to 100% of the Market Value
We can also buy any house using our favourable assisted sale product. An assisted sale is a alternative selling option that’s perfect for those who are happy to receive a large immediate cash sum and are prepared to wait (approximately a few months) for the remainder of the pre-agreed sale price. With this method we agree the total purchase price for your home and pay you an initial portion right from the start, this is usually around a third of the sale price. We will actually exchange contracts and take over all running costs and responsibilities for your home.
When selling your house this way you essentially give us more time to achieve the highest market value possible, we do this by placing your house on the open market with a traditional estate and attract a normal house buyer who is prepared to pay the full market value. We typically aim to complete within a few months and then you will receive the remainder of the pre-agreed sale price. If we can’t sell your house as quickly as initially anticipated then we don’t wish to inconvenience you further and will ultimately purchase your home using our own cash funds and still keep to our pre-agreed purchase price.
If you do have more time on your hands and just need a certain amount of cash to move on with your life, possibly just the deposit required to buy you new house then this is a perfect half and half method that will allow you to achieve a far higher offer than a straight cash sale.
- Releasing upfront Cash before your property is actually sold.
- Still being able to sell to a normal house buyer (Achieving a Market Value Sale Price)
- Escaping being stuck in a chain
- Receiving the pre-agreed sale price even if we cant sell via a traditional estate agent
- We cover all fees and costs
- We actually exchange contracts meaning that we have to purchase your home.
Even if your house is in complete disrepair or the most remote location in the UK we recommend that you speak to one of our advisers who can appraise your property over the phone and make you a preliminary offer subject to inspection.
