There are a number of companies online that claim to buy your house for close to full market value. Has anyone actually done this of are the claims just lies?

  • Only by mistake. Any company saying that they will pay full market price are lying simply to open up a dialogue. If they were prepared to pay 100% why waste money on advertising? there are at any given time circa 750,000 properties for sale in the market, most of whom would accept the market price. Behind the agencies are investors who have been sold the concept of a pre packaged BTL investment below market value. The quick sale agency share this discount with the investor. If you need to sell quickly list your property in auction with a high reserve. You can do several auctions at the same time. You withdraw your entry if your property is sold. You will generally complete in 4 weeks and you may get the full market value.

  • Doesn't happen. These companies are purely in business to make a profit form other peoples misfortune. Desperate sellers at well below market value - the house buying equivalent of Wonga!

  • I contacted 1 of those companies and they would only offer 75% of the value, they never go much above 85% as they need to make a profit.

  • There is a product called the 'Assisted Sale' product which enables the vendor to receive very close to this figure and higher than a traditional cash offer. Take a look.
