Quick House Sale Solutions
If you don’t have a private sale option on the table, then there are three ways to sell your house quickly. Below we discuss each briefly.
As you are trying to sell your house quickly we assume that you have already considered or tried using an estate agent.
Estate agents are generally a good solution when you have lots of time or are in a fast moving property market, but if time is not on your side then using an estate agent will almost certainly slow the process up for a quick house sale.
Moreover, with an estate agent you are often subject to tedious viewings and complex chains. Not to mention estate agent fees and legal costs!
Using a specialist property auctioneer is another potential quick house sale solution, but again auctioneer fees are high, sales aren’t guaranteed and worse still you might get an offer well below your expectations!

Cash Property Buyers
Selling to a cash buyer is a great solution if time, cost and ease of transaction are important.
That being said though, not all cash buyers are made equal. There are some players in the market who cut corners, have unethical practices and dubious track records. We recommend reading our article on how to avoid quick house sale scams.
Accelerate Homes are a member of both organisations and operate to a strict code of conduct as set our here.
Quick House Sale – Cash Buyer vs. Estate Agent!
To help you assess whether a cash property buyer like Accelerate Homes is the right option for you we have set out a worked example. This quick house sale comparison to a traditional estate agent route is for illustrative purposes only and values may differ depending on your personal circumstances.
As you can see in the chart a seller with an asking price of £100,000 will typically receive an offer from a cash property buyer at about 20% below market value (subject to a RICS report). This may seem like a significant discounted value, but when working with Accelerate Homes, we don’t charge any fees. Moreover we will cover all of your fees, including the cost of a survey and legal costs. This means the offer price received is often very close to the net price after completion.
With an estate agent the scenarios can vary, but generally the agreed sale price after a survey is around 5-10% below one’s asking price. However, this is the point at which costs start creeping in. There will be a 1-2% estate agent fee to consider, a solicitor’s fee, and often the largest cost will be the mortgage repayments during the months that it can take to sell and complete on a traditional estate agent sale. As you can see the net price received is often very close to the final value one would receive should one work with a cash property buyer.
Over and above the financials though there are some significant benefits of working with a cash buyer like Accelerate Homes.
Here are a few:
- We can complete in as little as 7 days. Most of our quick house sales complete within 28 days, but it you need to go faster we can!

Quick House Sale – The Process
The best part of working with Accelerate Homes to achieve a quick house sale is the simplicity of the process. There are three basic steps.
Step 1: Complete our enquiry form or call us
Using the enquiry form above send us your details. Our valuation team will contact you within 24 hours to discuss our initial offer and your selling needs.
Step 2: Get an independent survey conducted and agree final price
If you are happy with the details we will instruct an independent RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) survey to visit your property and produce a valuation report. Based on the outcome of the report we might adjust our initial offer upwards or downwards. We will send you our final offer for your consideration.
Step 3: Agree sale and completion date. Complete paperwork
If you are happy with our final offer we will agree a completion date that works for you and our team will take care of all paperwork. We can instruct a solicitor for you or you are welcome to use your own solicitor. We will cover all costs so you can focus on your next move.
