Category Archives: Regulated Quick House Sales

The Quick House Sales industry differs to traditional estate agents because companies buy property directly or broker a deal with property investors.

Both options are typically faster and more reliable than waiting for a private buyer to buy your property but the convenience comes at a price reflective of the scarcity of companies with sufficient funds and organisation in place to ensure sales can be completed in 7 – 28 days (depending on the option chosen).

The quick house sales choices are particularly useful when a person needs to sell a house fast due to difficult personal circumstances where selling a house for a sometime significantly reduced price is still a better financial and mental option than the problems that difficult personal circumstances could cause.

The problems that could occur include allowing debts to increase out of control through fines and fees being added to the original amount;  being evicted as part of a repossession order; missing out on a fantastic opportunity due to cash flow problems or being unable to proceed with goals and plans due to the financial burden of unwanted home ownership.

Typically, companies that operate in the Quick House Sales industry make their money by buying property for a price that allows them to resell it at a profit to developers who expect to pay less than the market value.

The longevity of the industry is dependent on the reputation of the companies within it to be transparent about the offers they make, the fees they charge and accurate about the time a sale will take to complete.

Unfortunately, due to the desperation of some of the sellers, before regulation and the high numbers of repossession, the industry attracted some people willing  to sacrifice longevity in favour of making bigger profits by taking advantage of people and practices that turned urgent need to desperate need with no time to look for alternative service providers.

Today, thanks to regulations and public awareness about the sense in choosing a company that is regulated and approved, there are far fewer dodgy practices still in operation.

ALL aspects of National Residential’s  sales options are fully regulated and approved.
