Who Are Goodmove?
Goodmove are a Leeds-based home buying company. They claim to be able to buy your property in as little as 7 days.
What services do Goodmove provide?
Goodmove say they will do their best to buy your property directly, but if they are unable to do so, they will try to find someone who can. This suggests that they do buy some properties directly, but also offer a broker or estate agency service.
What is the buying process for Goodmove?
Good Move’s buying process is very similar to other property buying companies.
Step 1: After you’ve entered your postcode on their website, you will be contacted to gather more information about your property.
Step 2: Good Move will then do some research before coming back to you with an offer ‘in principle’. They aim to provide this initial offer within 24 hours.
Step 3: If you agree to the ‘in principle’ offer, they will get your property assessed and valued before coming back to you with a formal offer.
Step 4: If you accept the formal offer, the legal process will begin. Good Move do make it clear on their website that if a property survey identifies anything that would impact the property value, they may have to amend their formal offer or withdraw from the sale.
How much below market value do Goodmove offer?
Good Move’s website says they will pay up to 85% of market value.
Goodmove customer reviews
Good Move Reviews Trustpilot
Good Move Trustpilot review score: Good Move have a Trustpilot score of 4.9/5 but, as mentioned above, that score is unlikely to be an accurate picture of customers’ experiences with the company. Several reviews mention being ‘bribed’ by the company to remove any negative reviews or edit comments. With this type of review censoring, it is impossible for homeowners to get an accurate idea of what it’s like to sell your house with Good Move.
Reviews also mention Good Move marketing properties to investors. This means that, in at least some cases, Good Move is acting as a broker or estate agent. If Good Move isn’t buying your property with their own cash funds, they’re unable to offer homeowners any guarantees on either price or completion timescales.
The benefits of using a quick house sale company are the speed and certainty they offer. If the company isn’t buying your property directly, they’re unable to offer either of those benefits. A cash investor may be able to buy your house more quickly a mortgaged buyer on the open market, but there are no guarantees.
Good Move Reviews Google
Good Move Google review score: Good Move score 5/5 on Google (based on 82 reviews) but due to reports of reviews being censored, it’s difficult to trust this score. The comments left on Google are exclusively positive and do not seem to reflect the experiences of customers who left reviews on Trustpilot.
