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 those recommended by 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. We are unique in the market as our recommended partners don’t rely on third party lenders or external investors. Instead they have access to significant cash funds, which means they can buy your house quickly and for cash!

Our process is designed to be straightforward, hassle-free and totally transparent.

Sell House Fast London – How It Works

Here’s how it works

Step 1: Enquire and Get A Quote

Using this form make an enquiry or call us. We will connect you with one of our recommended parters whose valuation team will review your details and present you with a cash estimate for your property within 24 hours. Estimates are based on 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 the cash estimate and would like to proceed, the buyer will arrange and pay for a surveyor to visit your property to provide you and them with an independent valuation. Based on the surveyors report they may adjust thei cash estimate upwards or downwards to reflect the valuation. They will confirm in writing any adjustments and their final offer is final. At no point are you obligated to proceed and they will never charge you an admin fee.

Step 3: Accept Final Offer, Agree Date for Completion

If you are happy with the final offer and would like to proceed the buyer 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, they’ll still pay all fees! You can choose a completion date that works for you. If you need to move really fast then they will make sure to meet your timescales, but equally if you have a bit of time on your hands they will never rush you.
