What’s the Best Way to Find Fast House Buyers?

Finding the right buyer for your house can take longer than you think, read through some of your options here with UK PCB

There are many routes open to you when selling your home on the open market, for example, here at UK PCB we buy any house. Some of these will promise to help you sell house fast. But is that the case? We explore some of the easiest ways to get a great price for your property. Your choice is important if you want to sell your house quickly, so how do you find fast house buyers?

Fast House Buyers - UK Property Cash Buyers

First, let’s explore the traditional ways of finding a house buyer. You can hire an estate agent to take on the sale of your property and advertise it locally. If the house sells, your agent will then take a cut of the sale price. Consumer group Which? says the average estate agent fee is around 1.8% of the total sale price. The exact amount of these fees will vary between agents. It could be as low as 0.75% or reach up as far as 3.5% depending on who you choose.

This means that if you sold your house for £250,000, you would pay your agent £4,500 in fees from your property sale. Then you add VAT of 20% on top. You’ll also have had to pay for a structural survey and found professional services to help you move. It’s an expensive process. There are also legal fees to add to your bills.

There are other fees you also need to pay. Check if you must pay your estate agent extra for advertising costs, or preparing the details and photographs of the house. Some agents will even charge for the ‘for sale’ board outside your home.

These costs are on top of the money you spend in the run-up to getting the house on the market. That might include refreshing indoor or outdoor areas. This all adds to your bill for moving home.

House buyers take their time

An average UK house sale takes two to three months, shows recent data. While some homes get an offer from fast house buyers in a week, others wait months or even years. The average property takes 91 days to sell, says Post Office Money Mortgages. That figure can vary between different cities and types of house. Remember, estate agents can never guarantee a quick house sale. Or that they will find the right house buyer for you.

Auction houses can sell fast

The next option is to have an auction house sell your property. Auctions work by adding your home to a list of available properties in the catalogue for the next sale. Then interested parties try to outbid each other on sale day to be your home’s next owner. This can drive up the price of an attractive property. It can also drive down the price on a bad day.

Auctions can be an efficient and effective process, But, not all house buyers like the auction environment. The competitive nature of the bidding process puts some people off. There’s also paperwork involved in this route. Potential bidders must register to attend an auction and some house buyers don’t like it. We think buying a house should be much simpler.

There’s also no guarantee your property will sell at auction at a price you’re happy with. It might not even sell at all. The latest market data from mortgage lenders shows only modest rises in prices offered by house buyers. If you don’t get the price you want at auction, you must relist it and pay again. That’s a difficult step if you need the free cash to buy your next home. This means that although auctions look attractive they are a bit of a gamble. And you don’t save a lot of money for your gamble.

Auctioneer’s fees are not much better than those of estate agents. And unlike estate agents, you pay the auctioneer whether you find fast house buyers or not. It’s also worth remembering that there is a quite a long lead time. People naturally want the opportunity to research the properties on the books before bidding.

This could make it around two months before your house gets to the saleroom. And even then, you can never be certain it will catch the interest of the people in the room on the day. Once you have a successful bidder there is still paperwork to be completed. It is possible you’ll need to cover extra legal fees. A solicitor might have to accompany you to the saleroom.
