Downsizing Your Home to Release Equity


With larger properties becoming harder to sell on the open market, many people are now stuck in properties that are too big for their needs. Living in a home that’s too large can be just as annoying as one that’s too small, and it means you have to deal with higher energy and council tax bills for space you’re not using.

Over the last two years Quick Move Now has seen a 40% increase in the number of enquiries coming from people looking to downsize

Another reason for downsizing could be to release equity from your property. If your home has increased substantially in price in recent years, then you may wish to sell up, move somewhere smaller, and use the extra money from the equity to have a better lifestyle.

Quick Move Now offer one of the fastest, most efficient ways to sell your home, and we can complete the sale in as little as seven days. This then gives you the freedom to put an offer on a new, smaller place, and allows you to plan your financial future.

How does it work?

Downsizing and releasing equity couldn’t be easier with Quick Move Now. You simply pick up the phone and call our friendly team, or fill in our
online enquiry form to get started.

We can quickly give you an initial offer on your home, so you can calculate how much equity could be released. An independent estate agent would then carry out a full valuation, allowing us to make you a formal offer. There’s no obligation, and we’re happy for you to take some time and consider whether releasing equity is the right choice for you.

Selling to Quick Move Now means you can choose a completion date that’s suited to your situation, and we can guarantee cash funds will be available on the day for the sale to complete. You’ll know exactly how much money will be paid to you, and can decide what to do with your released equity.

I worked out that although I may have achieved a bit more on the open market, when you take out the £6,000 estate agent fees and the £1,000 solicitor fees that you don’t have to pay with Quick Move Properties’ part exchange, it suddenly became a relatively small price to pay for all the time, stress and risk we saved.

Saving money on your house sale

There are many reasons why Quick Move Now is a cheaper alternative to selling on the open market:

  • No estate agent fees – Estate agents usually take a percentage of the final sale price, so not using them can save you thousands
  • No solicitors’ fees – Quick Move Now pay your legal fees – again, a huge saving
  • No need to redecorate –We buy any home, as long as it’s in a mortgageable condition, so there’s no need to spend money doing up your home
  • No hidden extras – From the EPC to surveyor fees, selling a home has lots of hidden costs, but we take care of everything so there’s no cost to you
