Open Property Group provides solutions that High Street agents can’t always deliver. Many of our past clients were told they’d find it impossible to sell with tenants in situ or with a short lease. Having spoken to us, they were pleasantly surprised to learn we actively buy occupied lets, ‘problem properties’ and flats where the lease is considered short. We have also helped families sell probate properties and stepped in when a home is about to be repossessed and saved broken chains. Every offer we make is cash, allowing for a quick sale completion – essential when circumstances demand swift resolutions.

Selling for cash can come in handy in a number of situations

- You’ve found your ideal next home but are struggling to sell your current house.
- You need flexibility in your sale timeline.
- You need to free up cash from your property quickly.
- You’ve inherited a property and need to sell in order to share the proceeds with relatives or to pay inheritance tax.
- You don’t want to have to deal with estate agents.
- You don’t want the stress of coordinating with buyers and third parties.
- You’re fed up of problem tenants and want to move the property on.
- You don’t want to publicise the sale of your property online or with a board.

Couldn’t I get these benefits from selling at auction?
It’s true that selling your house at auction can help you to bring in cash for a difficult property, but there are a number of good reasons to sell to a cash buying company like the Open Property Group instead.
- There’s no guarantee that you’ll sell for a good price. Although the auctioneer will recommend a guide price for your property, there’s no guarantee that you’ll make any more money than you would from selling to a company like the Open Property Group. In fact, there’s no guarantee that you’ll sell at all, and a failed sale could significantly increase the time it takes you to offload the property.
- Suitable auctions can be hard to find. It’s also entirely possible that a good auction with the right audience won’t be occurring in your area any time soon. If you’re trying to sell your house for cash quickly, a lack of a suitable occasion could slow the process right down.
- You’ll have to pay auction fees. If you do manage to get your house to auction, you’ll have to factor in the costs of paying for the property to be listed and evaluated. You might also have to pay for an Energy Performance Certificate if you don’t have one already. These costs will come out of any return you make on the sale.
- Holding an open day might be inconvenient. In order to be successful at auction, you may need to hold open day’s beforehand to allow potential buyers to see the property. If you have tenants or it’s hard for you to access the property, this could be a major inconvenience or even an impossibility for you. However, failing to hold an open day could dent or remove any chances you have at a successful auction.
If you don’t want to deal with the fees and the added stress of an auction, sell to a trusted cash property buyer like Open Property Group for a streamlined property sale.
Avoiding cowboy buyers
Not everyone who offers to pay cash for your properties has the best intentions. Some businesses will offer cash without actually having the funds to buy your property, stalling out the sale while trying to find a buyer of their own. Others will try to cheat you out of a fair deal by reducing their offer at the last minute, and still others will try to lock you into a contract that prevents you from looking at other buyers, this can be referred to as an ‘option agreement’
To avoid this situation, stick with a trusted business that can actually follow through on the cash offer that they make. Open Property Group is one of these businesses, as shown by our registration with the NAPB and the Property Ombudsman. These memberships show our commitment to excellence in a field where regulation isn’t mandatory and mean that you can trust us to do what we say we will.

Cash House Buyer Reviews
“The purchase of an inherited house with tenants in situ was ‘bread and butter’ business for the Open Property Group. The new property owner didn’t want to be a landlord, nor did they want the hassle of trying to evict tenants. The owner sold, with the tenants in place, to Open Property Group. The equity was quickly released and the tenants were undisturbed.”
“The speed of which we offer exchange and pay cash upon completion was the deciding factor for one couple who were relocating to Scotland. Open Property Group’s service allowed the buyers to cherry pick a completion date that suited their onward plan, bypassing the unpredictability of selling on the open market.”
“After two collapsed chains and a whole heap of stress, one seller turned to the Open Property Group for certainty, security and a guaranteed sale. We stepped in at short notice, bought the property and became the end of the chain for peace of mind.”
