How long will my house sale take?

How long it will take from your accepting the offer until you sell your house will depend on many factors. The average process takes between 8 to 12 weeks but can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if they are a first time buyer with a mortgage in principle, it could take 6 to 8 weeks.
