With Assisted Move, your home is still sold on the open market, but our Assisted Move partner will liaise with estate agents on your behalf and even pay the agents’ fees.

It’s a bit like having someone do all the leg work for you!

How does it work?

Step 1: We take all of the details about your home and pass them to one of our Assisted Move partners.

Step 2: They will arrange for three Estate Agents to value the property.

Step 3: Once those valuations are in, our Assisted Move partner will collate them into a single report. They also include commentary about current market conditions and full details of comparable properties on the market and recently sold.

They will come up with a recommended asking price and a predicted sale price based on the evidence in the report.

Step 4: We share the prices and the full report with you, so you can make an informed decision.

Step 5: If you are happy to proceed with the recommendations, our Assisted Move partner will arrange for one of the estate agents to advertise the property in order to sell it.

During the selling process, they’ll liaise with the agents and gather viewing feedback.

Step 6: Once a sale is agreed, our Assisted Move partner will chase solicitors and mortgage advisors in the chain. That means you can concentrate on choosing your new kitchen.

Assisted Move nearly always results in a quick sale and a lack of hassle for the client.

The Assisted Move partner will be responsible for the estate agents fees, and in most cases we will contribute towards the Assisted Move partners’ fees. You’ll need to speak to the sales team at the development where you are interested in buying to see what they are able to offer.

If the property hasn’t sold within an agreed timeframe, they will reassess and make recommendations to you.

In some cases it is possible to start off with Assisted Move, with a guaranteed part exchange offer in the background to fall back on.

In nearly all cases we will hold your plot for an agreed period of time, usually four weeks, whilst the Assisted Move partner tries to sell your existing home. We may ask for a refundable deposit of £500.
