Accelerated purchase in a nutshell!

Our Accelerated Purchase System (APS):

Our accelerated process is quicker, more secure, and less stressful than a traditional transaction, with significantly smaller risk of a fall-through, and without the pitfalls of traditional auction. 

Step 1: view the property

Step 2: make an offer (usually above the guide price)

Step 3: if your offer is accepted*, pay £600 buyer fee – please remember to consider this amount when placing your offer.  AM Home Sales will act in the interest of all involved parties to ensure a smooth transaction.

Step 4: Sign memorandum of sale, and agree a target completion date.  This can be anywhere from 3 weeks for a cash buyer, to as much as 6 months if all parties are in agreement.  On average our clients are looking to complete within 4-8 weeks.

Step 5: pay 10% deposit.

The deposit is held in our protected business client account and is secured subject to survey and mortgage offer.

The property will be marked as sold and removed from sale.  Following receipt of the deposit, no further viewings or offers will be entertained.

Step 6: sit back and relax while we manage the transaction progression from start to finish.
