Funds needed quickly to take advantage of onward purchase
Mr Higgs, Hemel Hempstead | Inherited Property
Matt Higgs wanted to sell the three-bed detached bungalow he had inherited in Hemel Hempstead in order to invest in new properties, both in England and the USA.
He had hoped to sell quickly in order to take advantage of discounted house prices when purchasing his new properties, but had been waiting on the open market for six months and found that the few interested parties who came forward could not obtain mortgages and so were unable to buy.
It was a large property and therefore expensive to maintain, keep clean and run heating and electricity in case there were any viewings.
He contacted Quick Move Now towards the middle of December and asked for a sale completion by Christmas.
As the UK’s leading house buyers, non-reliant on mortgage finance, Quick Move Now was able to oblige and provided a free, formal offer based on valuations by two local independent estate agents.
The offer was put forward on the telephone and in writing and Mr Higgs was given time to decide what he wanted to do. After contemplation, he accepted the offer and decided on a completion date.
Matt Higgs said of Quick Move Now:
They were very realistic in terms of what they would pay for the property, very quick in terms of coming up with an offer and the whole house sale process was very, very quick – five days for us from start to finish.
By using Quick Move Now, Mr Higgs was able to complete on the house sale on his chosen date (December 23rd) and so achieved his aim of selling before Christmas!
Quick Move Now took responsibility for working with the solicitors to affect the sale and even covered the cost of the legal fees. Mr Higgs was able to end the year on a high and start the new year by making his property purchasing plans in England and abroad a reality.

It is a service I would recommend to anyone really. They were very realistic in terms of the valuation, they kept their promises in terms of timescales and they kept us informed right the way through the sale transaction and I can't fault them at all in terms of that. Far better than the normal route of an estate agent and a solicitor! Brilliant service.
