  • None of them will pay much. The reality is they say they pay upto 90% of the value. But they will take an extremely low value and subtract upto 30%. You could get as many companies as you can who give a free valuation and see for yourself, just don't pay anything upfront. Make sure the valuation is free! It is only worth considering if you can afford to take such a low value for your property. You could go on the open market for a lower amount, there are always buy-to-let investors looking for bargains, might get you more money, perhaps worth a try before the cash buy option?

  • I wouldn't bother with cash buy companies. You might as well take the property to auction.

  • A Cash Buying Company will typically pay around 85% of the market value. However many offer to pay the solicitors costs and of course there are no estate agents fees so it's more like an average of 88% roughly. Just be careful - there are lots of sharks! Look for NAPB (The National Association of Property Buyers) and The Property Ombudsman membership to give you redress and never pay anything upfront! If you would like any more information on how the process works, don't hesitate to contact me. Regards, Jonathan.
