Has Your House Sale Fallen Through in Birmingham?

When you’re involved in the property market in Birmingham, you’re likely aware that property chains can become a source of frustration. On average, a worrying 1 in 3 sales fall through. The moment a link in a sale chain breaks, the whole process can grind to a halt, leading to stress and potential sale fall-throughs.

That’s where UPSTIX steps in.

Our solution is designed to get your sale back on track and significantly reduce the stress associated with these situations and get you into your new home quickly.

What is a broken property chain?

A broken property chain occurs when one or more buyers or sellers within a property chain withdraw from the sale. This will cause all the house purchases to fall through, leaving you stuck and back at square one. This happens to 1 in 3 house sales in the U.K. with various reasons triggering these breaks, including a buyer’s inability to secure financing, a seller receiving a better offer, or a property survey revealing significant issues.

Another sale saved thanks to Alex McDermott and his team at Upstix. As an agent I work with vendors who find themselves unable to secure their new home because they can’t sell fast enough or are at risk of losing their purchase because their sale has fallen through. Alex has personally just gone the extra mile to ensure that one of my clients can complete in time to buy their new home. Alex offered the highest price of any fast buy company and worked tirelessly to get the deal across the line in time. Thanks Alex, I know I can always rely on you to save the day!

Amazing service. Jeremy has been so helpful with our house sale. I was in tears thinking we would lose our dream home and he did everything he could to make sure it could happen for us in the quickest time possible. Can’t thank you enough.

From my very first contact with Upstix. From my very first contact with Upstix, everyone was polite and so helpful. The communication received from Kris was second to none. He always called when he said he would or if he was unable to would ensure one of his colleagues kept us updated as to what was going on. We felt that everyone was on our side and rooting for us to get the best possible outcome. Upstix have enabled us to be able to offer on our forever home and we are so grateful to Kris and his team for all of their help and support.


Great is quick and easy is what your looking for. Kris and Charmayne have been great at keeping us updated and pushing things along for a quick sale. We exchanged in just over 3 weeks as they expected.The price didn’t drop once agreed after the survey, so a hassle free option if easy is what your looking for.
