Our team are always on hand to answer any questions you have. Selling a house is a big deal, so we give you as much time as you need to make your decision.

If you agree to move forward, we’ll take more details about your house and will arrange for an independent appraisal so we can take a proper look at your property and prepare a formal cash offer for you.

Based on our appraisal we’ll make a formal cash offer for your property. It’s entirely up to you whether you take it or leave it.

If you decide that you would like to proceed with a quick house sale, you choose the completion date that suits you. The whole process can be completed in around 14 days, or if you need longer then you can choose a more sutiable time to completion.
