What is the Difference Between a Mortgage Property Buyer and Cash Property Buyer?

The difference between a mortgage property buyer and a cash property buyer in the UK is very simple. A mortgage buyer does not have enough money to buy a property outright so makes an application to a bank to lend them the money over a long period of time. The bank usually lends the house buyer a sum of debt over a period of typically 20 to 30 years at an agreed rate of interest.

Risks of Selling to a Mortgage Property Buyer

For those looking to sell a property, one of the problems and frustrations that they often come up against is dealing with buyers who need to take a mortgage. Firstly, the house seller could agree to sell their house for an agreed price with the buyer reliant upon taking a mortgage. It will not be quickly known if this buyer is able to secure a mortgage or not and whether the bank will actually lend on the subject property. The whole transaction is at risk if the buyer’s mortgage does not go through and by the time the mortgage falls through, both the property buyer and property seller will have paid a number of fees that are not reimbursable. Legal fees will have been paid on both sides and the buyer will have also paid fees relating to their failed mortgage application. Further to this, a significant amount of time will have been lost and as per the common phrase, “time is money”.

If a sale falls through after 6 months due to a house buyer failing to get a mortgage, then this means that not only is the house seller back to square one, but they will also have had to pay 6 more months of their own mortgage costs, cover 6 more months of their utility bills and cover more costs relating to the upkeep of the property. And unfortunately, there is no guarantee that when the property seller remarkets the property, there will be a different outcome. More fees could be paid, more time wasted and still, no house sale completed.

Why Use a Cash Property Buyer?

An alternative route to selling a property is to use a cash property buyer. This excludes all risks that relate to a buyer taking out a mortgage and, once the cash buyer is in place, the time to completion for a house sale is much faster. The challenge that remains however is how do house sellers find a cash buyer? Most estate agents do have some cash buyers on their books, but they are much fewer and usually only buy very specific properties. The time to actually selling a property can therefore still be very long as it takes considerable time to find a cash buyer who would be interested in buying this very specific property.
