Estate Agents

Move Quick offers estate agents and their clients a rare window of opportunity in a highly-uncertain housing market.

Lending institutions have severely restricted funds available for mortgages and are demanding huge deposits from first-time buyers.
Between 2003 and 2008, new borrowers were asked to come up with 10 per cent of the value of a property before being considered for a loan.

However, by Spring 2011, that figure had jumped to almost 25 per cent, meaning a deposit of £27,000 to buy the average-priced home in Scotland.

The knock-on effect of this is a stagnant housing market, with prices falling on a monthly basis.

Matt Griffiths, of campaign group PricedOut, which lobbies for affordable house prices, said: “Banks are worried that prices are going to fall and are only lending with high deposits so that it will be the borrowers who take the risk in the future, and not the lender.”
Many find it difficult to keep up to date with the banks shifting lending criteria and, of course, there is the worry that interest rates will start to drift upwards this year.

Move Quick opens up a whole new avenue to house sellers and their agents.

For a start, our intervention does away with the dreaded ‘chain’.  We can release clear funds within a relatively short time of agreeing a sale.

This allows your house seller to move on and – with an offer not dependent on a sale – puts them in a very strong position to negotiate a discount on their chosen property.

We may not be the perfect solution to every sticking house sale but more and more, we believe we will be able to offer house sellers peace of mind in very uncertain times.

If you think we can help, please feel free to give us a call.
