Many of Ready Steady Sold’s clients received more than 85% of the sale price of their homes for cash. When compared to other quick sale companies which pay only 70% – you don’t have to accept less!
Ready Steady Sold is a new trusted breed of quick house sale companies offering their customers a fair price which could be up to 85% of the sale price for a quick sale.
There are so many ‘fly by night’ property buyers meaning a quick sale can be a risky option with some companies treating customers unfairly. Typically rogue companies will agree a price only to drop it hours from completion.. With customers faced with feeling forced to accept the revised offer or be left high and dry sellers are left thousands out of pocket.
A new breed of quick sale company – Treating customers fairly
Ready Steady Sold is a new breed of quick buying company. When Ready Steady Sold agree a price then that is the money that you get paid, unless of course a surveyors reports finds a major problem with the house. With this approach we are as good as our word and will not drop the offer price.
Having now advised thousands of customers on selling their properties, Ready Steady Sold Director, David Sessford says:
“There has always been a gap in the market for customers who wanted a guaranteed buyer and a quick sale of their home at a price that’s fair.”
David explained: “Before Ready Steady Sold, sellers wanting a quick sale would have to go to property buyers in the back of the newspapers typically offering 70% of value. Our customers deserve better so we decided to set up our own company and as a results have been astonishing with customer typically selling for 85% of the value of the property.”
Traditional Estate agents driven by commission overvalue properties
David continued: ‘Estate agents keen to get your business and gain listings will overvalue your property to convince you to list with them, which can add to the misery for customers expecting a property sale within a reasonable timescale.”
“Properties are listed on Rightmove or Zoopla for months by Estate agents, with zero interest and zero viewings or offers”. And that is not the end of it he adds, “in order to sell the house and earn a juicy commission the estate agent then suggests reducing the price until the house is at a level where a buyer is found. This leaves customers utterly disillusioned and disappointed especially when they here that some of the larger estate agents employ staff just to reduce prices”. David mentioned that many customers struggle to value their property correctly, and that Ready Steady Sold have recently created a short video for their customers explaining the different types of valuation available.
Office of fair trading investigation
The Office of Fair Trading is on the case and these rogue companies that drop their prices last minute are being investigated. It is highly likely that the OFT may also act on estate agents who continue to overvalue properties. The Property Ombudsman who regulate estate agents, are also expected to act on this bad practice.
“Regulation should be welcomed” said Jack. ‘We run a very successfully estate agentcy but we never overvalue houses, it’s just not worth it in the long run. Ready Steady Sold is going from strength to strength, which really highlights the distaste many people have for commission-driven estate agents and unfair quick house sale companies. Customer want a fair deal, that is all.”
Valuing houses: simply check sold house price information
Ready Steady Sold approach is to be open and honest when it comes to estimating house values. It’s not rocket science as sold house prices are recorded at the land registry and are freely available. This information can be extremely helpful for consumers to work out the value of their homes.
As a rule of thumb just look at how much a similar property to yours sold for around 2008 and then compare this with how much a similar house sold for recently. The historic information coupled with recent sold prices offers the best indication as to a property’s value. As many house buyers bought at the peak of the housing market around 2006 there is often a false expectation to the value of their home, and mortgages might still be more than the current value of their house!
