Value My House
To make you an offer we'll start by carrying out
a FREE valuation on your property
What's the first step?
To make an offer on your property the first thing we’ll need to do is value your house. This process is completely free, and won't take long at all.
To start with you'll spend some time on the phone with one of our team, and we'll gather some information about your property, its internal condition, and the local area.
We then use sophisticated valuation software to examine your local market, area, and we look at recent comparable house sales nearby. When this “desktop valuation” has been completed we'll call to give you an idea of what our offer is likely to be.
This happens within 24 hours of your initial enquiry with us, meaning you can quickly establish whether or not we're going to be a good option for you.
If you’re happy with the ballpark valuation figure, we begin work on making you a formal offer.
How we make our formal offer
If the ballpark figure works for you, and you’d like us to make a formal offer then we go into the rest of the valuation process. We instruct independent, local estate agents from your area to come and have a quick look around your property and then report back. This is at no cost to you, and with no obligation.
Getting opinions from estate agents close by to you ensures an accurate, impartial valuation. Unlike some other house buying companies Yes! Homebuyers do not send out "sales reps" or our own “valuers”. We only use independent local experts to help establish the value of your house.
Once we have these reports we can aggregate all the feedback we’ve received to best determine what the value of your house is. We call this the “full market value”. As a rough guide, we generally consider this to be around the price you’d achieve after around 6 months on the open market with a local estate agent.
Clients can normally expect to receive our formal offer within 7 working days of contacting us.
We use sophisticated valuation software and the opinions of local, independent experts to establish what your property is worth. Once we know that, we can make you our best possible offer.
How do I know that my valuation will be accurate?
Some customers are concerned that a house buying company will try to value their house less than what it's worth so they can justify making you a lower offer. While this may be true for some other companies, it's not in our interest to work that way.
Simply put, we’re here to buy property – we have the funds available to buy, and we want to buy as many houses as possible. We know that the more money we can offer for your house, the more likely it is that you can accept our offer. After all, if our offer is too low, you can just reject it and walk away at no cost, and we’d lose the business. So it's important to us that we establish what your property is worth so we can make you our best possible offer.
Our valuation process is set up to try and build a true picture of how much your house is worth so that we can offer you our best possible price.
How much do you offer?
Once we’ve established the full market value of your home we can make our offer. This will usually be within 7 days of your initial enquiry with us.
Our offer is, on average, around 80% of the market value 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.
As an example, if your property was worth £100,000, our offer would be in the region of £80,000. We can buy your house very quickly and with no fuss, there are no estate agent fees to pay as we buy from you directly, and we cover all the other costs you'd normally incur when selling your property. Finally, we can have the money in your account quickly.
With our offer there are no estate agent fees to pay as we buy from you directly, we also cover your legal fees, and there are no other costs or hidden charges
What if I don't want to accept your offer?
That's fine - if we can't make you an offer that you're happy to accept you simply reject it and explore other options. Our valuation is completely free, and with no obligation - so you have nothing to lose by getting in touch.
If you do decide to reject our offer, it’s worth bearing in mind that we generally leave our offer on the table for around 28 days. This means that if you choose to reject our offer but then change your mind later, you can get back in touch and we’ll be happy to stand by our original price.
What if I do want to accept your offer?
Simple - just let us know, and we'll start the ball rolling with the next steps.
