If you're in a rush, we're an option

Our service is the perfect solution if you want to sell your house fast. We can buy your home as quickly as you need, or if you prefer, we can time our purchase to suit your plans. This means you move out when you’re ready (not when your buyers or your chain tells you to). It’s a refreshing change from the frustratingly slow pace at which things normally happen in the housing market.

20 weeks to sell on the open market

Selling your home is usually a long and drawn out process. Studies show that it takes an average of 18 weeks from when you first start to market your home to legal completion –and you can add a couple of weeks to that for your initial dealings with your local estate agent before that marketing starts.

On average it takes over six months to sell your home on the open market

This means that, on average, you are looking at over 26 weeks, or six months, to sell your home. And in slow moving markets, that can extend to even longer. Even in what are termed ‘hot’ markets, where there is demand for homes it still takes around 18 weeks (four and a half months) to sell your property.

Months of stress and uncertainty

To make matters worse, you won’t just be waiting around for your home to sell. Firstly, you’ll have to deal with a constant stream of viewers. It normally takes at least ten viewingsto sell a home. That’s ten times you have to have your home perfect and presentable, and ten groups of people who will come poking around your personal space, determined to findfault to knock down your asking price. And when you do finally find a buyer, you’ll face a whole new nightmare of paperwork and legal issues, intrusive surveys and slow solicitors.Even after all that, your buyers could still come back with a last minute price cut, knowing you’ll be so fed up with the whole process by then that you’ll just cave in and accept it,rather than have to start your home sale all over again.

At Yes Homebuyers, we have funds waiting ready to buy your home as quickly as you need. We don’t have to apply for a traditional mortgage and we only work with the fastest solicitors, so we can act fast to buy your home as quickly as you need us to.

A home sale to suit you

Of course, not everyone is in a position to move in just two weeks, and so we tailor our service to suit you, whatever your schedule. We offer a home sale on your terms, so you can set your completion date whenever you want it. You may be moving overseas on a set date, or you may be waiting for your new home to be ready for you to move in. You might be moving jobs to another part of the country, or there may be other circumstances that dictate when you want to complete on the sale.

With our service, you choose the date you want to move

Whatever your situation, we can set your completion date to be whenever you want it to be, to fit perfectly with your plans.

Our formal offer is valid for 30 days, so you have plenty of time to think about it, and if you need a longer lead time to completion, we can usually review and restate your offer in just a couple of hours, without needing a new valuation.

You can even change your completion date if your circumstances change, so you don’t have to move out before you are ready or find expensive temporary accommodation and storage for your stuff. Just let us know the new date you would prefer and we’ll work towards completing the sale then.

A certain sale at a set price, guaranteed

With Yes Homebuyers, not only can you sell your home as quickly as you need to, you can also relax knowing that your sale is certain to happen and your offer is guaranteed and will not change at the last minute. We are professional cash home buyers, and so there is no chain that can fall through or fickle buyers that can change their mind. And the price we say is the price we pay.

We give you a £1,000 offer guarantee, so you know our offer won't change

When you agree our offer, we will send your solicitor £1,000 as a guarantee. If we change this offer or move the goal posts in any way, that money is yours to keep, even if you walkaway from the deal. We can only make this promise because we know that it will never happen. We will pay what we say, every time.

Is a fast home sale right for you?

Our fast cash home buying service is not right for everyone, but it could be right for you. If you are happy to wait months to sell, and endure numerous viewers, slow solicitors and the uncertainty of not knowing if the sale will go through until the very last minute, then you will almost certainly get more for your home on the open market.

However, if you want a swift, certain home sale arranged to suit you, with a guaranteed price and a completion date that fits your plans – then we believe the difference is a small price to pay.
