Avoiding Quick House Sale Scams

Scam Sign

There are so many ways to sell your house these days, and in some cases you can receive an offer in as little as 24 hours.

It’s a competitive market, but one that can also be dangerous if you aren’t careful. There are a number of scams out there so you have to be aware of who you choose to sell with.

Here at Fast Cash Property, we’re tried and trusted and treat all our customers fairly and are transparent throughout. 

That’s not the case everywhere though and below you’ll find some top tips to avoid those looking to scam…

How the Offer Price is Determined

If the offer sounds too good to be true, then the likelihood is that will be. There are a number of sites that will make you an initial offer that site way above the market value. Then once you begin to proceed, they’ll drop that price. 

We’re up front with all our fees and the initial offer you’re given, is the one you’ll receive. There are no hidden fees and we won’t drop our offer further down the line.

Think About Reputation

All reputable companies will be a member of the Property Ombudsman. What’s more, a simple Google search can also often separate the wheat from the chaff.

We’re fully fledged members of the Property Ombudsman and you are under no obligation to sell to us at any point. 

Our team are always on hand to help and we work at a pace to suit you, whether that be selling your house fast, or at a much slower pace to fit in with the things going on in your life.

We’ve developed a reputation as one of the most caring and considerate teams around and pride ourselves on an approach that puts the seller first.

How They Finance The Sale

Some less trustworthy sites will finance the buying of your home via third parties, which makes them far less trustworthy than cash buyers.

Here at Fast Cash Property we’re cash buyers and work with respectable solicitors to ensure funds are transferred into your account swiftly and safely. 

The cash offer we make you is the cash you’ll receive, and you can find out much more about how our entire process works by clicking here.
