We Buy Now Review
About We Buy Now
Webuynow.co.uk operates as a part of the larger group known as ‘SpringBok Properties.’ It’s worth noting that while Springbok Properties is a member of the National Association of Property Buyers (NAPB), the specific website WeBuyNow is not affiliated with NAPB. This suggests that some caution should be taken when considering transactions on the WeBuyNow site. It’s important to mention that the reviews on the Webuynow website belong to the parent company, Springbok Group, with company number 09045757, and not the site itself.
On their website, We Buy Now proudly advertises themselves as the ‘#1 Reviewed Fast Sale Specialist & Cash Buyer.” However, being the top-rated property buyer can be subjective and may not necessarily reflect their actual ranking in the industry.
While We Buy Now itself does not directly purchase properties, its parent company, SpringBok Properties, appears to be a genuine cash buyer that can facilitate property acquisitions. Additionally, it’s reassuring to know that SpringBok Properties is registered with The Property Ombudsman (TPOS), which adds a layer of credibility to their operations.
Who is WeBuyNow?
WeBuyNow is a direct property cash buyer based in Kent. We Buy Now is part of Springbok Group operating on the UK market since 2014. They believe in transparency and have many reviews on their service though they’re for Springbok Group not webuynow.co.uk but the infastrucutre under the website is running the same service. Their website does not contain many information and cliets and being redirected to the parent site – Springbok Properties. They are accredited by the Property Ombudsman.
What services does We Buy Now offer?
Their website advertises an offer of “up to 100% market value,” but it’s essential to approach this claim with caution. Achieving full market value through a “we buy any house” route is typically unlikely.
It’s also worth noting that you might be presented with a part-exchange option involving their partner, ‘Delma Homes.’ In this scenario, we highly recommend requesting proof of the “market research” mentioned on their website. Best to get quotes from many competitors to make sure you are getting the best deal possible.
