What Does It Mean to Sell a Property for Cash?


Selling a property for cash means that the buyer (us) has the full amount of money available to purchase your home without needing to secure a mortgage or other financing. This can significantly speed up the transaction process, as there are fewer hurdles to clear compared to traditional sales.


How Quickly Can I Sell My Property for Cash?


One of the main advantages of a cash sale is the speed at which we can move. The process can often be completed in as little as 30 days, sometimes even faster! This is because you avoid the lengthy process of waiting for mortgage approvals, bank surveys and valuations, as well as dealing with estate agents and lawyers.


Will I Get Market Value for My Property?


Cash buyers often offer slightly less than the market value of your property. This is because they provide the benefit of a quick, hassle-free sale and take on the risk of buying the property in its current condition, even if a property is in a very poor state of repair.


However, it's very important to note that the difference in price is often offset by the financial savings in time and the avoidance of additional costs like estate agent fees, repairs, and extended mortgage payments.


Estate agents fees can vary from 1-3%. When you consider a 2% fee on the sale of a £250,000 property is £5,000 and conveyancing fees are often in excess £1,250. Coupled with 4 to 6 months worth of mortgage payments while the sale goes through, the quick sale cash buying route is very attractive.




Do I Need to Make Repairs Before Selling?


One of the benefits of selling to cash buyers like us is that we purchase properties in all different states of repair, so whether your property is in mint condition, needs a new roof, electrics or flooring, or it's in a fire or water damaged state, we will still buy it from you so you don't need to spend time or money on repairs or renovations.


The cash offer you receive will be reflective of the state of repair at the time of your enquiry. The buyer will assess the value of your property in its current state and make an offer accordingly.

What Happens if I Have an Existing Mortgage?

The solicitors handling the transaction will handle the repayment process to ensure everything is settled correctly.

Yes we do.

What Are the Tax Implications of a Cash Sale?


Selling a property for cash has the same tax implications as a traditional sale. You may be subject to capital gains tax if the property is not your primary residence. It's advisable to consult with a tax professional to understand your specific tax obligations.
