What is a quick sale company? And how do they work?

Fast sale company

A quick sale company is an organisation devoted to helping people sell their homes as fast as possible, and with less hassle than an ordinary house sale. You may consider using a fast house selling company over an estate agent because you can get the equity out of your property quickly, if you don’t want the hassle of paying for listing and surveying fees as well as the final commission which can be as high as 3%.

Who is it useful for?

A fast sale is particularly useful for people who find themselves in financial difficulty and may be facing repossession. It is also a good option for couples who have suffered a break down in their relationship and need to sell due to divorce agreements.

Why would I use a quick sale company?

The average time to sell your home through an estate agent in London is 79 days as estimated by data. And according to property experts,, on average 1 in 3 house sales a year fail. So with such long average selling times and with the likelihood that a third of all people will fail to sell their house, it’s no wonder that the guarantee of a house sale is so appealing, nonetheless one that will take less than a month to complete.

Nowadays more and more people are not using estate agents to sell their houses. As property portals like Rightmove and Zoopla changed the way people could list their homes, estate agents became less popular. In fact, the public’s relationship with estate agents has been a long suffering one, where too many people have been stung with unexpected fees or complications.

This is what makes us different from estate agents:
