How much do you offer?

We generally offer around 80-90% of the full market value.

By buying your home from you at a discount to its full value we’re able to give you a certain, stress-free sale and guarantee you expert support throughout.

You'll also make thousands of pounds worth of cost savings that help offset the lower price. Many of these costs are surprising and are often overlooked when selling.

So although the discount seems substantial at first, a fast sale may cost much less than you think.

Detailed Answer:

Our offer is based on the full value

We go through the valuations we’ve received to determine what we think the realistic “Full Market Value” of the property is. The “Full Market Value” is the price you’d normally be able to achieve in around 6 months with a local or online estate agent.

Our offer is, on average, around 80-90% of that figure – but it can be more or slightly less depending on other circumstances. This is to allow us to make an offer that’s more tailored to your specific property.

Why aren't our offers a set percentage?

The reason our offers aren't a set percentage on all properties is to give us flexibility to factor in the risk-level of the acquisition, as well as the amount of time we are likely to have to hold onto the property for, and the level of certainty we can reach around what the house is eventually likely to sell for in the future. This may mean we can pay you slightly more than usual for your home - but it may mean our offer is lower.

As an example, it’s generally easier to value and sell a 2-bed terraced house in a town-centre than it is to value a more niche property in a rural area. This is because there are lots of buyers for the first type of property, and fewer for the latter. This is why we are sometimes able to offer slightly more than 80% on certain properties.

The valuation is free

The only way to find out exactly what we’d offer is to contact our friendly team, let us quickly go through our valuation process, and we’ll make you a formal offer.

We don’t make money on all of our properties either – sometimes we make a loss. So on those sales where we’ve made losses, our client actually received as much as 90-100% of what the property was worth, and had the benefit of an extremely fast and convenient sale to us. This doesn't happen often, but it's worth bearing in mind.

Why would I sell my house for less than its full value?

Short answer:

Selling your home the traditional way (with an estate agent) will usually get you the highest price, but it can be uncertain, stressful, and drawn-out.

A home sale to Yes Homebuyers guarantees you speed, certainty, convenience, and peace of mind. And for some sellers the lower price is well worth it.
