To Move Now has created a portal to connect housebuilders whose purchasers have properties to sell with a panel of corporate property buyers.
Members of the panel bid to buy the second-hand properties directly, so the developer can sell its new homes without being exposed to chains or taking on part exchange stock.
To Move Now Director, Chris Taylor co-founded the business. He said, “Part exchange is a tried and trusted system, but it does not fit every scenario.
To Move Now provides a cash buyer and a fast sale where part exchange isn’t appropriate. For example, Help to Buy can be used in conjunction with our service, whereas Government rules prevent the scheme from being used with part exchange.
“Our service works for people moving up, down or sideways and operates throughout mainland UK, so is not restricted by geography.”
To Move Now is the sister company to Developer Solutions Ltd, one of the country’s leading providers of land appraisals, viability assessments and market analysis. Its CEO, Chris Gregory, said, “Developer Solutions provides data, analysis and insight to solve developers’ problems in areas ranging from land valuations and local area appraisals to finance and mortgage availability.
“To Move Now is an extension of the Developer Solutions ethos. Through our discussions with developers across the country we identified a need for a service which could accelerate sales.”
