Part Exchange Fallback

If your PX customer is unsure about their PX offer, would you like to offer them an alternative approach thereby continuing with their reservation?

We Can Help …

Securing your customer with a PX offer and options for an AM service

The great benefits of a normal Part Exchange deal are guarantees and speed! By buying your customer’s home, they are able to reserve with you. It can all happen quickly.

Part Exchange fallback enables your buyer to reserve one of your plots before having sold their current property.

The benefits of both Assisted Move and Part Exchange

If a Part Exchange deal is agreed between you and your buyer but the plot they’re moving into is not close to completion, we can market the Part Exchange property under an Assisted Move scheme. If preferred your buyer can “fallback” onto the original Part Exchange offer which was agreed.

This provides the benefits of both Part Exchange and Assisted Move with little risk of a sale falling through.

The importance of a strong valuation

As is common with our Assisted Move and Part Exchange programmes we start by establishing the value of your customer’s home. A good solid, well researched, well evidenced valuation, avoiding over or under valuation helping us to:

  1. Set expectations from the get-go for all parties
  2. Ensure that any valuation is well balanced and well evidenced
  3. Speed up the process

Our comprehensive Property Valuation Appraisals are based on the findings of up to three local estate agents, online comparisons of similar properties in the area and a study of Land Registry Data. We take into consideration the pros and cons of the area, the condition of the property, the location and anything that may affect the desirability of the house in question.

Once researched the findings and researched information is collated into a comprehensive and easy to read Property Valuation Appraisal report. This balanced, unbiased or inflated valuation value is used as the basis for a Part Exchange Proposal and, once the figures are agreed, the sale of the new property can proceed.

Please note that the offer to your customer is normally a figure of up to 90% of the property’s value.

Part Exchange Fallback – How It Works

Step 1: Application
Complete our simple application form with your qualified customer and send to your dedicated team at Moving Made Easy.

Step 2: Valuation
We organise up to 3 local estate agents to value your client’s property, compiling a comprehensive valuation report, with recommendations for a competitive marketing price, sent to you within 24 hrs to discuss your Part Exchange offer with your client.

Step 3: Negotiation
If your customer feels the Part Exchange offer on the property is too low to proceed, and the plot they have reserved is not yet completed, we can offer our Part Exchange Fallback scheme, where the property is marketed under an Assisted Move scheme for a period of time.

Step 4: Market property
The property is then marketed under an Assisted Move scheme for an agreed time period, with the aim of achieving a higher offer for your customer.

Step 5: Offer agreed
The property will either sell under an Assisted Move scheme, if a higher offer is achieved, or PX against the initial offer.

Step 6: Agree marketing price
Once the PX deal has been agreed and the reservation has taken place, MME will get to work selling the property, instructing agents to begin the process.

Step 7: Offer received
Your dedicated sales progressor will drive the entire sales process from start to finish providing you with weekly progress reports towards completion and recouping of capital outlay.

Frequently Asked Questions

The risks are minimal.

Your customer in effect has two methods of attracting an offer on their home. The first is to accept a PX offer, the PX fall back offer, from you the housebuilder providing you with a guaranteed customer (who reserves with you know they have secured their sale). There is risk here in the form of the capital investment you have made in your customer’s property, which you are waiting to recoup. Our thorough approach to property valuation mitigates risk as far as possible.

The second is for us to market your customer’s property via our Assisted Move scheme. There is no associated risk.

Since two forms of sale are employed there is little risk to losing your customer and given our approach to valuation little risk to any capital outlay you may incur.

No, once the price of the fallback offer is agreed this will not change once the property is being marketed under an Assisted Move scheme and will not change if the property fails to sell on the open market.
