If you are a seller looking to achieve a quick sale of your residential or family property then you really do not need months of delays when it comes to selling your property – and you certainly don’t want to wait until spring or April to have a good chance of selling thanks to the changes in Stamp Duty.
To share our knowledge, we have put together our tips on how to differentiate between an estate agent, a property sourcer or true cash buyer. These 6 questions will help you decide whether or not you are dealing with a genuine cash house buyer or not.
1. Who will buy my property?
If the answer is investors, they are an estate agent or sourcer – not a genuine cash buyer. Property Saviour is owned and run by Saddat Abid, a Yorkshire-based property expert and his team. We will actually buy your property from our own company funds.
2. What is the name of the company?
Property Saviour is proud to feature some of our lovely clients on this site. Detailed case studies with the client’s personal story (with permission) help you gain a real insight into the reasons people sell their home, how it all works and most importantly, how they felt after dealing with us.
3. Who are the solicitors acting for them?
Read the solicitors’ reviews and share them with us. Can they complete a purchase in 20 days or quicker? Phone their office and speak to them.
4. How long will it take?
It should not more than 3 weeks maximum from start to finish. Contracts should be able to be exchanged quickly since they should have the funds readily available.
5. Do they have proof of funds?
This will really wind up anyone who is not a true cash buyer.
6. Can you speak to their previous clients?
Try to speak to people they bought properties from in the past and ask if they’d be willing to let you chat to them direct. A genuine company will have no reservations in offering you access to their case studies and the real people featured in them.
