Whatever reason you may have for wanting to sell your house for cash, here at National Homebuyers we are able to provide you with a personalised valuation and the opportunity to sell your house fast.
Each valuation is completely individual, there is however, a general pattern that our house buyers follow. It is possible to break this down into three straightforward steps:
1. Information Gathering
The first point of call when it comes to finding out about a particular property is the homeowner. We make a point of spending some time talking to our customers about the local area, the available amenities but also details about the property interior. We also liaise with our local property experts and estate agents to ensure that the most accurate valuation is provided.
2. Valuation Report
The valuation report includes an extensive overview of the information which has been compiled by our dedicated house buying research team about your property, along with our guaranteed cash offer. Our customers can usually expect to receive our cash offer within 7 working days of initial contact with us. Following this, our offer will remain open for 14 days. If you decided to accept the offer, National Homebuyers can arrange a completion date that suits you.
Once our offer has been accepted, National Homebuyers conduct an internal survey of the property to ensure that the specification and condition of the house is as described. As already mentioned, our customers have 14 days to accept our offer and when they have accepted, are free to choose a completion date which is convenient for them. We would also like to reiterate that our offer will be below market value and that at all stages of the process, National Homebuyers have a dedicated Customer Care Team to work with you to provide a quick, easy and stress-free service, allowing you to sell your house fast.
