Quick house buying service allows elderly to downsize
Ms Gloria Wakefield-Smith, St. Austell | Retirement/Downsizing
Gloria Wakefield-Smith’s mother wanted to sell her large, detached bungalow in St. Austell and downsize, but had been waiting on the open market for two years.
Even decorating the property to make sure it was presented in the best possible way hadn’t enticed potential buyers. Three different estate agents were employed over the years and the largest number of viewings any one of them achieved was four; no offers were obtained at all. The agents kept attributing their failure to find a buyer to market conditions and did not provide advice, support or solutions.
After 24 months of uncertainty and disappointment on the open market, Mrs Wakefield-Smith started researching house buyers online and found the Quick Move Now website.
She contacted us to request a free cash offer to buy her mother’s house which would be provided within 7 days. Mrs Wakefield-Smith and her mother were under no obligation to accept the offer and so were able to explore our house buying service, ask as many questions as needed and take time over their decision.
Once Mrs Wakefield-Smith and her mother had accepted the offer, they let Quick Move Now know that they required completion on 19th September (they wanted four weeks to make the necessary removal arrangements). Quick Move Now were asked to appoint a solicitor on their behalf so they were then able to spend time planning the onward move, safe in the knowledge that Quick Move Now would manage the house sale for them.
Mrs Wakefield-Smith’s mother put an offer in on the smaller property she wanted and her offer was accepted because she was a buyer without a chain. Quick Move Now bought her existing property on the specified date, leaving her free to complete on her purchase and start enjoying her new house.
Mrs Wakefield-Smith sums up her family’s dealings with Quick Move Now:
I couldn’t fault the service: it was trouble-free; everyone was friendly; it was professional. I have no trouble in recommending Quick Move Now.
My mother’s moved into a new property, the house sale was stress-free and we are so happy to have chosen Quick Move Now.
We had the property up for sale with various estate agents over a couple of years. The progress was very slow. It was always put down to the climate of buying and selling property. I went on the Quick Move Now website and took it from there.
