Everything You Need To Know About Assisted Move with Space Homes

What is an assisted move?

An assisted move is a fantastic option for anyone wanting to buy a new home. An assisted move with Space Homes allows you to reserve a brand new home whilst we help you to sell your existing property quickly and easily. We’re currently offering assisted moves at two of our developments: Ellerwood in Skipton and Castle Locke in Knaresborough. 

How does assisted move work?

  1. You’ll start by finding the home that’s perfect for you in our collection of homes at either our Ellerwood or Castle Locke development.

  2. You’ll then choose a specialist to carry out a no obligation valuation of your property.

  3. If at this point you’re happy to proceed, you’ll be able to reserve your chosen plot under our Assisted Move Scheme. Once you’ve done this, the marketing period for your current home will begin, and our local agent will take care of your home’s marketing.

  4. Once a buyer is found who is able to move, we’ll instruct solicitors and proceed with the sale. 

  5. Within 6 weeks, contracts will be exchanged which means we’ll be able to give you 10 days notice of your new home being ready to move into. 

  6. On legal completion, we’ll then be able to contribute towards your estate agent fees. 


What are the benefits of assisted move?

  • Taking advantage of an assisted move means you can secure your plot for a new home, even though your current property has not yet sold. 

  • Because you agree on the likely selling price of your home at the outset, you have the reassurance and peace of mind that you can afford your new house at the beginning of the process.

  • You don’t need to worry about negotiating and dealing with potential buyers - we’ll take care of that for you. 

  • You can take advantage of this scheme even if your current house value is worth more or less than the new home you’re looking to buy. 

  • And let’s not forget a contribution towards your estate agent’s fees will save you money!

So if you’re looking to move to a brand new home and the benefits of an assisted move have got you thinking about taking advantage of this great scheme, then make sure you don’t miss out on our assisted move events taking place this September. It’s the perfect opportunity to come and learn more about what’s involved, ask any questions and view our stunning collection of homes.
