Mrs Hughes – Chain collapsed

Quick Move Now saved our dream move when our chain collapsed

Wiltshire, South West

After the birth of their daughter, Vicky Hughes and her husband started looking for their ‘forever home’. They put their property on the market with a local estate agent and soon found a home they loved. Everything was going well until their property chain collapsed at the last minute. Knowing that their seller would not be prepared to wait for them to secure another sale on the open market, and desperate not to lose their dream home, they started to research ways to save their move. That’s when they decided to contact Quick Move Now.

Vicky explains: “Since having our little girl, and with home working, it became really important to us to find our ‘forever’ family home. Somewhere that would give us more space and allow us to settle as a family.

“We used a local estate agent to put our house on the market. Our house sold within a few weeks, which meant we could start viewing properties that we were interested in. Everything started to fall into place and we found our dream home quite quickly. Our offer was accepted and we started to get the ball rolling.

“The chain we were in was considered to be quite simple and should have completed relatively quickly. When weeks rolled by into months, we started to get a bit worried. Unfortunately, our worst fears became a reality and our chain collapsed. We were absolutely devastated at the prospect of losing our dream family home.

“Our sellers were very frustrated and said they wouldn’t be able to wait for us to find a new buyer in case it didn’t work out again. At that point, we looked into other options to save our house move and decided to reach out to Quick Move Now.”

Speaking about her experience with Quick Move Now, Vicky says: “The process was amazing from start to finish. Quick Move Now got the ball rolling as soon as we accepted their offer. We used the the solicitor they recommended, and they were brilliant! Everything seemed straightforward and effortless. We felt that Quick Move Now were committed to doing the best they could for our situation.

“The speed with which they were able to complete the sale was amazing. They made us a formal offer within a day of contacting them, and we completed the sale in just two weeks. We spoke to our seller and decided on a date to complete, then Quick Move Now simply worked to our timescales. It took away all of the stress that we’d experienced with our previous chain. For us, that was priceless! This move wasn’t just about buying a house, it was about securing a home that would give us the lifestyle we wanted; living closer to family, in an area we felt was the right place to raise our daughter. Without Quick Move Now, and the quick and guaranteed sale they were able to offer, we would most certainly have lost our dream home.

“I would definitely recommend Quick Move Now. It was so refreshing to sell via a process that was simple, quick and reliable. After the stress caused by our original property chain breaking down, it was a relief to use Quick Move Now. Instead of saying ‘if’ we move, we could say with certainty ‘when’ we move. It was the first time during the sale process that we were confident we would get to completion within the timeframe given. Our experience with Quick Move Now was just simple, efficient and reassuring, all the way through.”

Rhys Luke, Quick Move Now’s Purchasing Director, commented:

We were so pleased to be able to help Mr and Mrs Hughes. As a young family who had gone through the upset of a collapsed property chain, they were incredibly worried that they would lose out on their dream home. The situation was causing them a great deal of stress and uncertainty.

Time was a crucial factor for the Hughes family, and they needed to know that there was no chance of their sale falling through again.

We were able to make them a formal offer within 24 hours of them getting in touch with us, and completed the sale two weeks later to fit in with their seller’s onwards move.

Unfortunately, around one in three movers will experience a failed property sale. In addition to wasted time and money, a property chain collapse can also cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. For Mr and Mrs Hughes, the certainty of a guaranteed property sale on a date of their choice and the ability to secure the house of their dreams made selling to Quick Move Now their ideal solution.
