Selling Your House To Us – What To Expect

1. Contact

Fill in our short online form — it will only take a couple of minutes, we promise. One of our friendly property buying experts will get in contact to find out a little more about your property and to discuss whether a quick house sale is the right choice for you — no hard selling! We will make an initial no-obligation offer based on the information you provide. If you like our offer, we’ll arrange a free valuation of your property.

2. Valuation

We do all our valuation work remotely. We use hundreds of pieces of data from various property portals and speak to local estate agents to build a picture of your property, what we think it will sell for, and how long it will take to sell in the current market. When valuing your property, we consider its condition, the recent sold prices of similar properties, local risks such as flooding and how much comparable properties are on the market for. We want to pay you as much as we can so that you’ll be happy to sell to us. .

3. Formal offer

You’ll receive your formal offer within 48-hours of our first call. We use all of our research along with the information you provide to us about your property to calculate your no-obligation cash offer. The House Buyer Bureau Price Promise backs all our quick sale cash offers. We promise to beat any competitor’s genuine purchase price, and in the rare event that we need to change our offer, due to something unexpected appearing on the survey, we’ll give you £1,000 even if you choose not to go ahead with a sale to us.

4. Legalities

If you choose to accept our formal offer, we recommend you use a solicitor from our panel of quick house sale experts at no cost to you. We can instruct them on your behalf. Alternatively, you may find your own solicitor, and we will contribute £600 towards your conveyancing costs. After you’ve completed the initial paperwork, we’ll take care of everything. Our house buying experts will make sure that your house sale progresses in a timescale that suits you, be that 7 or 70 days — you’re in control!

5. Completion

We will arrange the exchange of contracts and sale completion on dates that are convenient for you. We'll transfer the funds for your property to your solicitor, who will pay off any outstanding mortgage balance then pay the remaining cash into your bank account. Once you’ve handed over your keys, the sale is complete!

Getting your no-obligation cash offer is easy. Just find your address and answer a few quick questions about your property. Sell your house in weeks instead of months and with zero hassle — you could even sell in as little as 7 days.

How Fast Do You Need to Sell?

At House Buyer Bureau, we understand that there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution for selling a property. That’s why we have developed two different services for you to choose from:

Speedy sale

A quick cash sale to House Buyer Bureau (approx. 2 weeks)

If you need to sell your house fast, we have the funds to buy your property in as little as 7-days. The sale is guaranteed, and there are no estate agent or solicitor’s fees to pay (if you use one of our partners). We typically pay 80-85% of a property’s market value. For added peace of mind, all of our quick house sale cash offers are backed by the House Buyer Bureau Price Promise. We’ll beat any competitor’s genuine purchase price and pay you £1,000 in the rare event we need to change our formal offer (even if you decide not to go ahead with the sale).

A House Buyer Bureau managed sale to an investor (approx. 8 weeks)

If you’re in less of a hurry to sell, we can match you with one of our property investor partners who will purchase your property for up to 5% more than we can offer for a quick cash sale. There are no fees for this service, and you’ll also avoid expensive estate agent fees and legal costs (if you use a solicitor from our network of partners). In the rare event that we cannot find an investor, you will still have the option to accept our original quick cash sale offer.

Why Choose House Buyer Bureau?

There are lots of quick house sale companies ready to make you an offer. Why choose us?

House Buyer Bureau has purchased over 2,500 properties since 2011. We are a member of the Property Ombudsman and a founding member of the National Association of Property Buyers (NAPB).

Why choose us? Handwriting on a napkin

Many “quick house sale” companies are not genuine cash buyers. They do not have the funds to buy your property and will pass your contact details on to a third party buyer, which can delay the sales process. We have the funds ready to buy your house fast, and we’re happy to provide proof of this.

As a founding member of the NAPB, we’re keen to see rogue traders disappear and best practices become the norm. That’s why we’re transparent about how we work and what we pay — there are no hidden fees, and we won’t let you down.

Trustpilot Reviews

Only been a member for a few months, but all good so far. They were particularly helpful in providing documentation when my application was picked up by my bank as a suspected scam, which fully satisfied the bank who eventually apologised.

Extremely happy with my investment and look forward to purchasing more. Professional and friendly staff dealt with my investment…

Sell House Fast FAQs
A quick house sale is the only way to achieve a guaranteed property sale. We will not pull out or change our minds. We also back all of our quick cash sale offers with our Price Promise. On the rare occasion that something unexpected appears on the survey and we need to amend our formal offer, we will give you £1,000, even if you choose not to go ahead with the sale. Find out more about our Price Promise
If you opt for a quick cash sale, we can buy your home with our own funds in as little as 7 days. You’re in control — we will work to a timescale that suits you. For sellers who are in less of a rush and are interested in receiving up to 5% more for their home, we can manage a sale to one of our partner investors which will complete within around 8 weeks
No! We do not charge fees for our services. We make our money by purchasing properties at a slight discount and selling them on again via auction or on the market. There are also no estate agent fees to pay, and if you use one of our partner solicitors there will be no legal fees to pay!
One of the benefits of selling to us is you don’t need to invest any cash in repairing or “presenting” your property. By the time you add up the cost of all those minor repairs and home improvements you would have to make to attract a buyer on the open market, the bill can quickly run into thousands of pounds. There are very few properties we won’t make an offer on. We don’t buy park homes, and we don’t buy in parts of rural Scotland and Northern Ireland — but apart from that, we will make an offer on most properties
