How Good Move’s Process Works

We have a simple and straightforward process that ensures that you can sell your house fast. Good Move experts are also available to answer questions and reduce concerns. What’s more, the full cycle of selling your property only takes three weeks on average! To get started:

Good Move Number 1

Contact Good Move directly or fill out the online valuation

Good Move Number 2

The property buyers at Good Move will then contact you to discuss the property and make an offer in principle (an offer subject to contract, inspection and survey).

Good Move Number 3

If the offer in principle is accepted, Good Move’s asset management company will arrange two separate appraisals for your property.

Good Move Number 4

Once Good Move’s surveying team receives the appraisal report, a formal offer will be made (this is an offer than is subject to contract and the Home Buyers Report).

Good Move Number 5

If the formal offer is accepted, solicitors are then instructed and contracts issued.

Good Move Number 6

Good Move then carry out a Home Buyers Report.

Good Move Number 7

The sale is completed and the balance of the funds will be transferred to you.


Why should I choose Good Move over an estate agent?

Estate agents can make it extremely difficult to sell your house fast. Not only do they often tie you into long contracts, but they often charge extortionate fees - dragging you into a cycle of viewings and amendments to your property. Good Move are regulated by the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA), meaning the team is made up of experienced surveying professionals.

How do you work out the value of my property?

Our offer in principle is based upon our initial discussion with you about your property and is subject to contract, inspection and survey. Our formal offer is made based upon the appraisal report on your property, also subject to contract and the Home Buyers Report.

What is the next stage after I agree to sell my house fast?

Once you’ve accepted our offer in principle, Good Move will arrange two separate appraisals for your property. Once you have accepted the formal offer based upon the appraisal report, our solicitors will then issue the contracts.

Are there any charges or fees to pay?

There are no fees for using Good Move. From your first valuation, to assigning a solicitor or even stopping house repossession, we pay for all costs so you don’t have to.

Do you only buy houses?

Good Move are property experts and can help you quickly sell your house or commercial property.

Can you help me if I am in arrears with mortgage payments or going through a divorce?

As a home buyer regulation by RICS, NAPB and TPOS, Good Move has excellent relationships with many high street mortgage lenders. We buy houses fast, so can stop repossession within 24 hours.

How quickly can I expect to receive the cash for my house?

A typical sale occurs within 2-3 weeks - which includes you receiving the cash payment. In circumstances requiring a particularly quick sale, we can even complete within seven days.

What documents do I need to provide you with?

To start the process of selling your house to Good Move, no documents are required, just an agreement of Good Move’s indicative offer before two valuations are instructed.

Do I need a solicitor?

Good Move provides a recommended solicitor and covers all of your fees. Alternatively, Good Move will contribute £500 towards costs of a solicitor chosen by the seller.

If my circumstances change, can I pull out of a sale?

You can pull out of a sale up until the point where contracts have been legally exchanged.

Can I be sure that my case will be kept confidential?

Yes, we understand that sometimes homeowners don’t want people to know they are selling their home quickly. Whenever you sell your house fast to Good Move, we guarantee it’s a completely private sale with no sales boards, viewings or advertising.

Simple and stress free which is something we didn’t think was possible when selling our house. We were very impressed with your knowledge and professionalism, which I expect is why the sale went through so smoothly. Thank you all
