Frequently Asked Questions – From a third party opinion and perspective

by | Mar 2, 2023 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

In this delicate episode we wish to give a bystander’s opinion (covering and including frequently asked questions) on how a ‘fast home sale’ company is deemed to be operating. 

As an outsider looking in, it seems that ‘property for quick sale’ companies operate by offering a speedy and convenient way for homeowners to sell their properties. They typically advertise that they can complete a sale within a matter of days or weeks, which can be appealing for homeowners who need to sell their property urgently. (Completing in days, in essence we believe, is slightly far-fetched and not really achievable).  

These companies often work by buying properties from homeowners directly, offering them a ‘cash’ (who these days has thousands of £’s in a suitcase? especially with tight money laundering legislation) payment for their home. They may also offer to take care of the legal and administrative aspects of the sale, which can make the process smoother and more convenient for the homeowner.

However, it’s important to note that certain quick house sales can come with certain drawbacks. For example, homeowners may not receive the full market value for their property when selling to a quick property sale company. Additionally, these companies may have less stringent requirements for the condition of the property, which could mean that homeowners end up receiving less than they might have if they had taken the time to make repairs and sell through traditional channels.

Overall, it seems that fast home sale companies can offer a useful service for homeowners who need to sell swiftly and are willing to accept a lower sale price in exchange for convenience. However, it’s important for homeowners to carefully consider their options and weigh up the pros and cons of a rapid sale before making a decision. 

(On our website Quick Property Sale we display a flavour of our most common; Frequently Asked Questions, displayed here on this link).

Q: Will selling my home to a sell house fast company affect my credit score?

A: Selling your home to a sell house fast sale company should, in theory, not affect your credit score directly. However, if you have outstanding mortgage debt, you will still be responsible for paying it off or at least ensure the mortgage is covered while it is being sold, which could impact your credit score if you’re unable to make payments.

Foot note

Bystanders can provide valuable insights and observations as they may have a more objective perspective, free from the biases or emotions about selling a property through an accelerated channel. 

However, it’s important to note that a bystander’s opinion can be often limited by their level of knowledge and a full understanding of the situation with ‘cash for houses’ suppliers. They may not have all the facts, and their perception of events may be influenced by their own biases or preconceptions from media influences. Therefore, while a bystander’s opinion can be useful, it should be taken with a grain of salt and considered in the context of other information and perspectives. (Phew, that was heavy going and we’ve done with that now).
