Getting a quick house sale can be tough. But if you choose to sell your property to a so called ‘we buy any house’ company such as House Buy Fast, we will make it happen. You will be guaranteed a 100% cash buyer. As we are the direct buyer, there is no property chain so we can proceed fast with the purchase.

Often we can complete the sale in under 2 weeks – and in some cases only hours or days. As soon as the sale is completed you will receive cash funds into your bank. If you have an outstanding mortgage we will deal with that too.

We contacted House Buy Fast about selling our house when our purchaser let us down for the third time. Duncan Fretter made us a fair offer, arranged all the surveys and we completed in 10 days. I would definitely recommend House Buy Fast to anyone wanting to sell their property in a hurry.
Seller in Southampton
Fantastic service. From our very first telephone conversation to the day the sale was closed. Extremely professional. Every detail was explained thoroughly and we never had to wait more than a couple of hours for our phone call/email to be returned. Highly recommended.
Help, I need to sell my house fast & don’t know where to start!
We all know buying & selling a house is one of the most stressful things you can do. There’s the agents, the viewings, the offers, the counter-offers, the gazumps, gazunders and the “actually we’ve changed our minds”. Then if you make it to the end of the process there’s the stress of the move itself.
To compound that pressure there are many situations where you might need to sell your house quickly. With the average house sale taking 5-9 months to complete, not to mention the 1 in 3 house sales which fall through according to the Office of National Statistics, you’re probably wondering…
Can’t someone just buy my house for cash today?
In short the answer is yes, we can buy your house quickly for cash and at a price based on its market value. Just enquire about our 'we buy any house' service. Remember, we cover ALL fees and costs.
How fast exactly is the purchase?
Really fast actually! We’ve completed on purchases within hours and our typical house sale takes just 2 to 4 weeks. We can do this because as a professional house buyer we have the resources to value your house right away and the cash funds available to buy it quickly.
Sounds great, but how much will I get for my house?
Typically we can offer up to 85% of the current market value of your home depending on factors like its location, condition and how quickly you need to sell. We are always transparent about how we work and how we make money and don’t add any hidden fee’s further down the line. Remember, you won’t pay any fees to us, your estate agent or your solicitor either.
Can I get 100% of my property's market value from a quick sale?
No property buying company is likely to offer you 100% of your property’s value. Home buying is a service, and like any business, stock can’t be bought at the price its worth in full.
If you'd like to get up to 100% of market value the usual way is to go down the traditional estate agent route and potentially wait up to several months to complete but remember, you’ll still have to pay the agent’s and solicitor’s fee.
Or you could choose a fast property buying company, such as House Buy Fast, with exceptional reviews and see why we’re one of the UK’s top rated cash buyers for a fast house sale.
