Guaranteed sale. Timetable to suit you. No hassle.
When you’re planning your retirement, there’s a lot to think about. We can help.
When you’re planning your retirement, there’s a lot to think about. And if you’ve decided to move house, you’ll be finding yourself having to juggle finding the right property to move to with selling your current home. That can be a challenge.
If you’ve already found the perfect place to retire to, then you’ll be keen to get things moving. Until contracts are exchanged, there’s always a risk the seller will take another offer. That might be a higher offer; it might however simply be an offer from someone in a position to move faster. The longer it takes you to complete the purchase, the more vulnerable you are. That’s not good news if you are struggling to sell your own house.

If you haven’t yet found anywhere to move to, and have the option of perhaps staying with family for a while, then it’s well worth considering selling up and taking yourself out of the house-buying chain. That way, you become an attractive buyer, you can act promptly, and you can secure the property of your choice by completing the purchase within the shortest possible timeframe.
Suitable retirement properties don’t come on the market every day – and when they do, they tend to be in demand. You might be looking for an easy-to-look-after bungalow, a park home, perhaps a seaside cottage. Whatever your dream retirement property might be, there’s a good chance others share the same dream. It’s a competitive situation, so it’s vital to be ready to take action to be sure of getting the home you want.
Do you put the house on the open market with an estate agent and hope for the best – or could there be a better way?
A faster, simpler alternative to the estate agent route
What we do is to provide an alternative to the traditional estate agent route. An alternative that is straightforward, stress-free, and will not only guarantee you a sale, but will guarantee completion and cash in the bank on a date that suits you.
Whether you’re downsizing to a house you can look after more easily, you want to be nearer family, or you’re simply looking forward to being able to live where you choose, the last thing you need is to lose the home that’s just right for you because you haven’t been able to sell your own.
You’ll know that when you market a property through an estate agent, there are no guarantees of success. There’s no way of telling how long you will have to wait to sell, or what price you will get, and there’s no certainty any offer will see it through to completion.
And all the time you’re waiting, you’re stuck in limbo, unable to make plans or commit to a new home because the cash you need is tied up in the house.
Our approach takes away the delays and the uncertainty, and puts you back in control.
Want to know more?
Selling a property is a big step, you’ll want to know exactly what’s involved. So we’re guessing you’ll have a few questions at this point…
We are not estate agents. Instead, we make our money from buying and selling property, and we’re genuine cash buyers with immediate access to funds. What all this means for you is that we are in a position to make a genuine offer on any property and to follow this up with a guarantee that we will buy at the agreed price on the agreed date. You can then plan ahead with confidence, knowing exactly what you’ll be getting in the bank and when.
That’s up to you. If you want to sell quickly, we can complete in as little as 7 days; most sales complete in 2 to 3 weeks. If you’re not in such a rush, we’ll agree a timetable to suit. There’s no risk of delay, and no risk of losing the sale and seeing your dream home slip from your grasp.
We buy all types of property in England and Wales, regardless of location or condition. Things that tend to deter normal buyers – such as older kitchens, tired bathrooms, and aging boilers – aren’t an issue for us. An even if the house is of non-standard construction or is otherwise unmortgageable, we’re still happy to make an offer.
Contact us, and we’ll give an in-principle offer within a few hours. If you’re happy to go ahead, we then carry out an independent valuation, after which we make you the guaranteed cash offer. There’s no obligation at this point – if you decide it’s not right for you, that’s fine. If you decide to go ahead, we make all the necessary arrangements.
And because we’re buying for ourselves, it’s in our interests to make the whole process as easy and straightforward as possible. We appoint an independent solicitor to handle your side of things as well as ours, and we organise an Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) if you need a new one – all at our expense. If there’s any other help you need, just ask.
Because we are the buyer, there’s usually only one person who needs to visit the house: our surveyor/valuer – and one visit is all it takes.
That’s very different from what happens when you put a property on the market through a traditional estate agent, when you face the prospect of constant disruption as potential buyers turn up wanting to explore every nook and cranny.
Yes, the price will be below the market value. But it will be a fair price, based on the location and condition of the house and reflecting the speed we can complete the sale. Bear in mind, too, that you won’t be paying estate agent’s or legal fees, because we’re covering those costs.
Think of it in the same way as trading in a car. You could probably get a higher price if you sold it privately on the open market, but it’s a lot quicker and easier to do a part-exchange with the dealer. You won’t have to organise your life around calls from estate agents and viewings from prospective buyers, and you can look forward with confidence to enjoying retirement in your chosen home knowing the amount agreed will be in your bank account when you need it.
