Pros:

  • Ask Susan offers no-fee service
  • Ask Susan provides cash offers within 24 hours and sales can be completed within a week.
  • Ask Susan buys properties in any condition, including houses at risk of repossession.
  • Their service is nationwide.

Cons:

  • Their website says that they can pay up to 100% market value but most likely you will receive an offer that is below market value. It is not clear how they make a profit if they are able to pay 100% market value for the property.
  • There is no email address or phone number on their website.
  • Ask Susan doesn’t offer 24/7 service which can be frustrating when the sale process is so quick.
  • Customers that were not happy with the service provided by Ask Susan left a number of negative reviews.
  • Ask Susan is not accredited by The Property Ombudsman nor a member of NAPB, meaning, they don’t have to stand by the guidelines provided by them.
  • Ask Susan uses surveyors that are not accredited by the  Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors to value your house. This means you may not receive an offer that reflects the real value of your property.

Our Thoughts:

Ask Susan provides a direct cash buying service. It claims that it’s a 7-day process but there is missing information on how does the process looks like. It is also unclear how can they offer up to 100% of a market value. Official reviews site provide mixed reviews with very few positive ones.
