Why Sell Your Property Quickly?

There are a number of reasons why you may want to sell your house quickly, from the desire for a fast and hassle-free sale to saving a broken chain and ensuring you are still able to purchase your next property.

Serene Homes can sell your home fast but will never pressure you into a sale, and can provide advice to help you make the right choice for your circumstances.


Common reasons for selling your property quickly are:


Inheritance and probate property

Selling an inherited property can be quite overwhelming, just like understanding the probate process as well as all the costs and documents required. Choose to sell your property quickly to us and we’ll handle your probate for you and guide you through the process.


Selling a house during a divorce to move on – Couples who are separating often have to live together while trying to sell a house; a quick property sale helps them move on faster. Sell through us and we also act as an intermediate, which can lift the stress of the entire process.

A buyer pulls out before exchange

A broken property chain can spell disaster for anyone looking to sell their house quickly unless it can be repaired. As a property buying company, we’re able to do exactly that, by simply swooping in to replace the missing link.

To stop house repossession

When there’s the threat of the roof being taken from over someone’s head, they need cash and fast. This is where we come in, by giving them a fast house sale that allows them to withdraw their equity to cover their debt. So, while they may have to downsize, they avoid property repossession.

Urgent house sale

Selling a house when the owner is emigrating or relocating – In the case someone is emigrating or moving to another part of the country, a fast house sale can take a lot of the stress off their shoulders. With their completion date clearly laid out, they can plan ahead more effectively and have more confidence in their move.

How Can I Sell My House Fast?

There are several ways to sell your house quickly for you to consider:

Use a Cash Buying Property Company

There are a number of benefits of using a company like Serene Homes. We offer our clients a fast way to sell their property with a cash offer within 24 hours and no obligation. There are no hidden charges, and most importantly no waiting around. We’ll make an offer of between 80% and 90% of the market value, and with no fees attached you may find the cost difference between using a fast home sale company and a traditional sale are not that far apart.

Use Traditional Estate Agents

Using an estate agent is one of the most common ways of selling your property. Using this route is the best for some sellers, as it can mean getting a higher price for the property. The downside is that can take many months, incurs expensive fees, and there is always the risk of a sale falling through. Generally speaking, this way of selling your home will take between 3 and 6 months.

Property Auctions

Auctions can be a useful way to sell your property quickly, but the downside is that you will pay fees that are not reimbursable if the property doesn’t sell. Plus, you will need to set a “reserve price”, which means that this is the lowest price that the property can sell for. It is usually set much lower than what you want to achieve, so there is a risk, but the upside is that there is a roomful of hungry buyers.

Property Raffle

This is a more modern way to sell a property and one that has been met with mixed reviews. Raffle tickets are sold to potential buyers, but you must tread very carefully because your property could sell for a huge amount less!

Home Equity Release Schemes

If you’ve invested a decent amount into your mortgage and are aged between 55 –65, then you could release some of that without having to sell your house. Whether you want to release some cash to fund a holiday home or just need a bit of extra money for retirement, an equity release scheme could be a good option. We’d always advise you should seek specialist advice and weigh up the risk before you do so.

Equity release schemes come in two types:

Life-time mortgage – With this, you’ll receive a lump sum from your provider which is secured against your property. You can then either pay this off or accumulate the interest, providing the value of your house would cover the costs when you die.

Home reversion – A reversion provider buys either all, or part of your property, but will not have access to the property until you die. You can continue to live there rent-free. Usually, the lump sum you receive is no more than 60% of the property’s market value.

What Are the Advantages of Selling to a Fast Home Buying Company?

The main advantage is speed of sale and the fact there are no fees to pay. We guarantee your sale, use our own funding, and will complete in as little as 7 days. That means from the first contact you make with us; you can have the money in your account within a week. You also receive the benefit of avoiding viewings and an intrusion of your privacy, and eliminate the risk of a sale falling through.

What Are the Disadvantages of Selling to A Fast Home Buying Company?

The main disadvantage is that you will receive a lower offer than if you used the traditional method of selling through an estate agent. However, when you take into account the fact that Serene Homes offer 80% to 90% of market value and do not charge fees, you may find the difference is not as large as you expected. The proof is in our tried and tested process. We can take the hassle and stress out of selling your property by doing the heavy lifting for you.

All you need to do is add your basic contact and property details and we will get in touch very promptly. Whether it is a Saturday night or Sunday morning, we will be straight on to your case, and you will receive a phone call much quicker than expected. Usually within minutes of making the inquiry.

If you are happy to wait, then perhaps the traditional route is best for you. If, however you want it done quickly with a guarantee, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.


What is the Serene Homes Quick House Sale Purchase Process?

Once we have spoken with you and made you an initial cash offer for your property, if you are happy to go ahead then we will book a Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) survey. This is basically a professional survey confirming the value and condition of the property.


Receive a cash offer within 24 hours

After we receive the property survey back then we will call you to confirm the outcome. Yes, the price can change if the survey comes back lower or there are problems identified by the surveyor. But the good news is that you won’t have paid a penny and all you need to say is “no”. There is no obligation, and you are not tied in.


Complete your property sale within as little as 7 days

We cover all fees and can complete in as little as 7 days. On that point however, we can be as quick as fast as you like – if you would rather have more time, then simply let us know.

How Do You Calculate the Value of My Property?

Comparable research is the most powerful tool but there are a large number of factors that are taken into account – the type of property, location, condition, number of rooms, structural stability, outdoor space, proximity to schools and closeness to transport links.

So much information is now available through sites such as Rightmove and Zoopla, so you can look at the exact same information as we do – that is why it is all so transparent.

As part of our standard process, we instruct a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) valuation report which fully confirms how much your property is worth. Even if you pull out, this is a cost to us rather than you. And that is the same with all costs – you will never pay a penny with us.


How Much Is a Typical Cash Offer for a House?

We offer a maximum of 90% of the property value and on average we pay 80% to 85%. The average price we pay is related to a number of factors as mentioned above, and whether the property is a house or a flat.

The cash offer we make to you is non-obligatory which means that you do not need to accept or even proceed once you have accepted. You are free to pull out at any time, although we believe that once you experience our fantastic service, you will certainly want to stay with us through to completion.

Fast House Sale Companies vs Estate Agents

If you are comparing a service like Serene Homes fast house sales and traditional estate agents, there are a number of factors to bear in mind when deciding which is the best route for you.


Fees for Selling Your House

When using a fast house purchase company, you will not incur any fees, whether you complete the sale or not. 100% of the profits come to you with no hidden fees or sale costs. If you choose to use an estate agent, you will incur fees at the point of completion which usually a percentage of the house sale price and can be quite substantial.


Reduced Risk When Selling Your Home

Every day across the UK property buying chains break, and often through no fault of their own people find themselves without a buyer when they have agreed to buy another property. Usually this means starting the house sale process over again and losing out on the new home they had planned to buy. This can lead to a number of financial issues as well as being a huge disappointment to all of those involved.

Employing a company like Serene Homes eliminates the risk of a sale falling through, or being delayed, and helps our clients complete the purchase of their new property even if things go wrong further down the chain.
