Sell House Fast London – The Process
Typically selling your house privately or via an estate agent will get you the best market price.
However, as you are probably aware, traditional routes to market like private sales and estate agents can mean your property is left unsold for months on end.
In fact most sales via estate agents in London can take up to 6-8 weeks to secure a buyer and then another 4 weeks to complete!
If you are looking for a fast sale this is just too long!
Moreover, selling through an agent can mean being stuck in a chain, which can really slow things down.
Of course estate agent sales also come with fees (typically 1.3% of the sales price in London) and other transaction costs, like solicitor fees. These costs along with the repayments on a mortgage as you wait for a sale can stack up quickly (see our worked example here).
If you are truly in need of selling your London house fast then a cash buyer like Accelerate Homes can be a great solution. But you need to do your homework first as there are some sharks in the market. We recommend reading our guide on avoiding quick house sale scams.
With Accelerate Homes we pride ourselves on providing a fast, professional and fair service for our clients. We are unique in the market as we don’t rely on third party lenders or external investors. Instead we have access to a significant cash fund that means we can buy your house quickly and for cash!

Sell House Fast London – How It Works
Here’s how it works
Step 1: Enquire and Get A Quote
Using the form above make an enquiry or call us. Our valuation team will review your details and present you with a cash estimate for your property within 24 hours. Our estimates are based on our extensive knowledge and experience in buying property in London.
Step 2: Free RICS Survey and Final Offer
If you are happy with the details of our cash estimate and would like to proceed we will arrange and pay for a surveyor to visit your property to provide you and us with an independent valuation. Based on the surveyors report we may adjust our cash estimate upwards or downwards to reflect the valuation. We will confirm in writing any adjustments and our final offer is final. At no point are you obligated to proceed and we will never charge you an admin fee.
Step 3: Accept Final Offer, Agree Date for Completion
If you are happy with our final offer and would like to proceed we will help you complete all paperwork as well as instruct and pay for your solicitors. If you would prefer to use your own solicitor that’s fine, we’ll still pay all fees! You can choose a completion date that works for you. If you need to move really fast then we will make sure to meet your timescales, but equally if you have a bit of time on your hands we will never rush you.
