One of the home counties for London commuters is Essex.  The County of Essex is filled with increasingly lively towns and also provides easy access to the coast. However, if you're trying to sell a house in Essex, you might be struggling to find a buyer in the current market. And there are many reasons to sell your house fast, ranging from relocating for new job opportunities to paying off debts and relationship breakdowns. That's where we come in - we buy all kinds of properties in Essex for cash, making the selling process quick and easy for you.

Areas we cover, that are not limited to, include; Southend-on-Sea, Leigh-on-Sea, Harlow, Brentwood, Chelmsford, Billericay, Colchester, Grays and Basildon.

Whether you have a flat in Purfleet on the bank of the River Thames or you need to shift an old farmhouse in a rural area like Castle Hedingham, we've got you covered. Let's work our way through all the answers to the most common questions you might have about using our fast cash buying service to sell a property in Essex.

What Stage Are You At? 

No matter what stage you're at, it's worth contacting us to talk about the possibility of a fast sale. 

Perhaps you're only thinking about selling, and you just want to find out how much you could get for your home - and how quickly. In that case, we'll collect some basic information from you so we can research the market in your area of Essex, then we'll come back to you with an estimate of what we could offer you. You're under no obligation to accept, but this information can be crucial in helping you decide whether you sell. 

Maybe you’ve been trying long and hard to sell your property, with no luck, and are ready to try something new. We offer an alternative to traditional estate agent sales and auctions - if you're sick of feeling like you're in limbo, we offer a new direction that can help you move on with your life.

Like many of our clients, it might be that you need to make a sale as soon as possible. This often happens when people experience new difficulties or significant life changes. We're experienced in completing the process in just a couple of weeks, freeing up cash you can use to find a new place or pay off existing debts. We strive to be flexible, so just let us know if you have any specific time constraints and we'll work around them.

Do You Have Problems Selling Your Property? We Can Help

As noted above, we're experts in dealing with Essex properties that are otherwise hard to sell. This includes places that need renovation or modernisation in order to appeal to the current market. We also take on properties in need of repair, or that are in less popular areas. In all these cases, we take the hassle off your hands - and might even save you money that would have been spent on new furnishings or repair work. If you have a busy life and don't want the nuances of a tricky sale to dominate your time, our service is the ideal solution.

Is Your Property Not Selling?

In addition to cases where the sale process takes too long, we often deal with clients who are struggling with a tricky situation related to their property. For example, perhaps you're looking to stop house repossession, and the only way to avoid a longer-term eviction is to make a quick sale. This will give you the cash you need to pay your mortgage lender. Or maybe you have a short lease, and extending it would be costly. 

Our staff are non-judgmental and professional, interested only in helping you solve problems. We're used to talking to people who need to sell properties to repay debts of all kinds - we know life is complicated. If you're under pressure to pay money that you owe, we'll provide you with legal representation during your sale and we'll make sure you get what you need.

Finally, if you have a sitting tenant, you might think you can't use our service. However, it's perfectly legal for you to pass ownership of a property to a new person.

Are you selling a property with sitting tenants in Essex,? If so, you don't need to go through the hassle of getting lending approval or finding a new landlord yourself. 

Has Your Property Sale Fallen Through?

An entirely different reason why you might need our help is when your house sale falls through. Perhaps you've come very close to selling, but then ultimately the buyer changed their mind for reasons unknown. Or maybe you're one of the many clients who has unfortunately encountered a property chain break. As so many buyers are themselves counting on selling a property, chains break down all the time, and you have no recourse to legal action because property offers are not legally binding. In addition, there are some cases in which buyers just can't get the mortgage financing they need to buy your property, and ultimately pull out of the sale. 

In all of these cases, it's hard for a traditional Essex property agent to work fast enough to allow you to move into your desired new property. In contrast, we can help to make sure you're still able to move into your own home in spite of the sale falling through, by immediately freeing up the cash you need.

Now, if you want to use our service to make a fast sale for cash, what should you do? Let’s look at how the process works.

How To Sell Your House In Essex For Cash

Step 1: Get In Touch

Contact us to see if your Essex property is eligible. We'll need your postcode, and some basic details about your home in order to check this. 

Step 2: Receive A No Obligation Offer

If our research tells you that your property is eligible for us to buy from you, we’ll contact you with 24-48 hours to make you a conditional offer. Remember, at this point, you still haven’t formally committed to a sale.

Step 3: Property Visit

If you accept our conditional officer, someone from our service will visit your property to inspect it and answer any questions you might have. On the basis of this inspection, we'll make a formal offer.

Step 4: Solicitors Instructed And Your Fees Paid

A member of our professional team will contact you to arrange a legal firm to act on your behalf. This will be an independent person, and we'll cover their fees. We'll also have a professional valuation conducted at this point, also entirely at our cost.

Step 5: Exchange Contracts And Completion

A member of our sales completion team will contact you to exchange contacts. Assuming both sides of the agreement are happy, we'll fix a date for the exchange. We're flexible about this, and know you may want to complete it immediately.

Cash House Buyers In Essex Looking For Properties To Buy

Often, prospective clients want to know more about us and how we work. We are a professional property buying company located in Essex, and we'll pay cash to buy any property - no matter its location or condition. We buy everything from large, well-maintained homes across Essex to older properties that have fallen into disrepair, including properties with Japanese knotweed. We also buy all kinds of properties, from flats to apartments, houses, bungalows, and farm cottages. We'll even pay cash for commercial properties, or for land. 

We're always looking for properties to buy, and we're committed to making you a fair offer, no matter how quickly you need the sale to go through. While our cash offer is likely to be less than an offer you'd get through an estate agent, it's important to look at the costs you save through our process. From renovations to legal instruction and valuation, we take on many of the most expensive parts of a property sale and leave you to move on with your life.

How Long Does It Take To Sell A House Or Flat In Essex?

If you're using a traditional estate agent, it can take an extremely long time to sell a flat or house in Essex. Often, you may be looking at the better part of a year, especially since it's likely that at least one prospective buyer will have to pull out due to financial reasons or because of a chain break. This is no good if you need money now, or you need to move on from a particular location.

Why Is A Cash Property Buyer Better?

In contrast, a cash property buyer in Essex can take your property off your hands and get you its cash value within just a couple of weeks - possibly less, in an emergency. Not only is this a fast and lucrative process, but it avoids all the headaches associated with remodelling, updating, repairing and showing a home. Everything about the house sale is simplified, and we're there to guide you through each step - as is the independent legal advisor we provide for you.

What Is The Best Way To Sell Your House?

The best way to sell your house depends partly on the circumstances, but for most people a quick sale for cash provides serious benefits.
