We find out how a couple used Quickmove’s part-exchange service to help fast-track their park home dreams

After visiting their friends at Royale Life’s Wickham Court development near Fareham in Hampshire, Mr and Mrs Venn decided to move from their home in Portchester and join them. After initially trying to sell their house using an estate agent, they were recommended by Royale Life to use part-exchange specialist, Quickmove Properties. The Venns explain how Quickmove purchased their existing brick-built home to make the whole move quick and easy…

Mr Venn said: ‘We had an interested buyer for our home but when they started messing us about, Royale Life suggested using home exchange. It’s a faster way to move but the big appeal was there were no fees to pay.

‘By the time we added all the estate agent and solicitors fees, the offer was the full asking price. We had a mortgage outstanding, so with retirement looming in, say, five or six years time, it was the ideal way to purchase our forever home. It enabled us to get rid of the mortgage, put a few bob in the bank and have a better lifestyle.

‘Quickmove were so quick – we could have moved in two weeks but we extended to three weeks to give us the chance to get ready and pack! The team at Quickmove was very helpful, we couldn’t fault them at all.

‘The solicitors and all the paperwork were so efficient. We’ve moved a few times over the years, but this was the best we’ve ever had.

‘The whole transaction was so smooth and well documented – highly recommended.

‘We love our Royale Life home at Wickham Court.

‘As soon as we visited we fell in love with it. It’s a great lifestyle and a lovely location.’
