Comparison against estate agents and auctions

7 Days to completion

  • Good Move are regulated quick home buyers with over 45 years of experience.
  • The RICS-certified chartered surveyors provide a fair cash offer for your property for up to 85% of the market value within 24 hours.
  • There are no hidden solicitor, valuation or estate agency fees.
  • Sales are generally completed within three weeks and there are no house chains involved, so a fast house sale is always guaranteed.

 

 

Estate Agents

3/6 months to completion

  • Estate agents monitor the property market and negotiate with buyers to sell your home.
  • Homes can stay on the market from a few days to several months.
  • You will be required to pay solicitor and valuation fees, as well as between 0.75% and 3% of the agreed selling price in commission.
  • All estate agency fees must be clearly noted before listing a property for sale, so there are no additional charges and most don’t charge for withdrawing a home from the market.

Auction

6/10 weeks to completion

  • Selling at auction is useful for those wanting a quick sale of a dilapidated or short lease property.
  • Sales are generally guaranteed, as the buyer must pay 10% of the asking price once the hammer falls and then has a month to pay the remaining 90%.
  • Demand from multiple buyers can quickly drive up the price of a property, but you should expect to pay 2.5% of that to the auctioneer.
  • The entire process from instruction to exchange of contracts can be achieved in as little as two months.
