What is Assisted Move?

Assisted Move is a popular incentive to offer potential customers, one that poses no financial risk to the housebuilder.

Effectively, by asking Moving Made Easy to sell your buyers existing property for them, they should be in a position to buy a new home from you more quickly than if they are left to sell their property without our support.

The whole process hinges on an accurate, realistic valuation of the existing property and that is where Moving Made Easy starts.

Our comprehensive Property Valuation Appraisals are based on the findings of up to three local estate agents, exhaustive online comparisons of similar properties in the area and a study of the Land Registry Data for the relevant postcode.  We take into consideration the pros and cons of the area, the condition of the property, the location – anything that may affect the desirability of the house in question.  All that information is collated in our reports and then presented to you and your potential buyer for consideration. The fair, unbiased and realistic valuation can then be used as the basis for the Part Exchange Proposal and, once the figures are agreed, the sale of the new property can proceed very quickly.  To see a sample of a typical Property Valuation Appraisal, click here.

Once the valuation is agreed we immediately start to market their property using a tried and tested multi-agency approach.  On average this technique finds buyers in half the time a traditional single-agency achieves, and we usually get the value we predicted – if not a little more.

The benefits to the housebuilder:

  • We sell their home promptly and for the best possible price which means they can make an offer on your property sooner
  • In addition to paying their selling fees you could also offer to hold the new property for them for a fixed period of time – assuming they follow all our marketing recommendations
  • We can arrange professional photography, listings with three top local estate agents, viewings and even minor home improvements to ensure the existing property looks the best it can
  • We can organise any required surveys and certificates (EPC, T&D, etc.) for their property and have a selection of preferred solicitors should they need one
  • We provide you and your buyer with a dedicated team so you know exactly who to contact when you need help or information
  • We provide you with printed and electronic literature to help you promote and explain the service
  • We can act on your behalf during customer negotiations
  • We keep you informed at every step of the way from sale right through to completion, with detailed weekly updates

The benefits to the homeowner

  • Their property gets sold quickly and with minimum stress allowing them to buy a new home from you
  • Our detailed valuation means they are confident our valuation is fair and realistic
  • We manage the whole selling process, dealing with estate agents, buyers and solicitors on their behalf
  • We keep them informed at every step of the way from sale right through to completion, with detailed weekly updates:

Once a valuation has been agreed, the team at Moving Made Easy take over the marketing, negotiation and progression of every aspect of the sale of the existing property, freeing your teams up to make more plot deals.  You and your customers will be kept informed every step of the way with detailed weekly reports (click here for a sample), listing all the activity that has taken place.  We’ll check and monitor every part of the chain of sales, liaising closely with buyers, estate agents and solicitors to avoid delays.

How we are valuing property during #Lockdown

We are pleased to say that we are are still valuing property during lockdown. To enable this, and to ensure the protection of all parties involved, we have brought in some checks.

From now, before an appointment, we will call the occupant to discuss COVID guidelines, going through a set of questions to check the safety of all involved.

Pending the answers to these questions we will then advise on how to proceed with the valuation.
