Full Process of Selling Your House with House Buyer Bureau

sell house fast

We know that selling your home fast is any house seller’s dream, particularly when the average time a residential property spends on the market in England and Wales is around 102 days. We can complete in 7 to 10 working days in some cases. In this blog we go through the quick and easy process of selling your home for cash, no matter what condition it’s in. There are no hidden fees, you are never tied in and there is no pressure.

There is no obligation to continue with the process at any stage until you exchange contracts.

Step 1 – Getting Started

Enter some basic details on our website and a member of our friendly team will ring you for a no obligation chat.  

Step 2 – Chat to Our Team

We will talk you through the easy process to sell your property in a little more detail and answer any questions that you may have. At this stage we will be able to give you an indication of what we can pay (Offer in Principle) which we can email and send in writing through the post.

Step 3 – Property Value

If you are happy with what we have discussed so far then the next step is to ask the opinion of local estate agents as to the value of the property (in some cases they may not need to visit the property). We will send 2 trusted local estate agents to visit your property at a time that best suits you and they will value your home. This report enables us to put together an accurate and fair cash offer for purchasing your property.

Step 4 – Formal Offer

Once we have reviewed the valuations then we will be able to provide you with our Formal Offer. It is up to you whether or not you would like to accept it. We give you 7 days to consider our offer.  Don’t forget, you are still under no obligation to proceed.

Step 5 – Instructing a Solicitor

After accepting the formal offer the next step is to instruct the solicitors. Instructing a solicitor is easy. You can either choose to use one of our trusted solicitors at absolutely no cost to you, or if you’d prefer, then you’re welcome to use your own solicitor. We don’t charge for the use of a solicitor from our panel and we will also take care of any further legal costs incurred with the sale. If you choose to use your own solicitor, then we do offer a contribution (up to £500 + VAT) to the cost of their service subject to the sale’s completion.  

Step 6 – Survey & Identification

We will arrange and pay for a local survey to check the condition of the property at a time and date to suit you. We will also talk you through our ID requirements. This process has been put in place to protect our sellers as well as us. Fraud prevention is very important to us.

Step 7 – Get the Cash!

Exchanging contracts is the point when we are legally tied in, completion is when you get the money.  Both exchange and completion can be on the same day or they can be separate if you would like time between. The completion date is set by you. On that day, your solicitor will arrange to have any secured debt on the property repaid and the remaining money will be sent directly and securely to your bank.

 

If at any point you need any assistance during this process, you can always call one of our friendly team and they will guide you through.
