Quickmove Properties launches specialist park home resale service
This new estate agency service has been created in response to the high demand for park homes and current waiting lists experienced by parks in obtaining some new park homes.
Pre-owned homes, thus, are more in demand. That’s great news if you are wanting to sell a park home – and this new service removes the uncertainty and stress associated with the private sale processes.

About the new Quickmove service
Quickmove’s new service is in partnership with the Sell My Group, the park and holiday home buying portal that works with parks, manufacturers and customers.
The venture is designed to fulfill record demand from people looking to downsize to retirement parks, while easing the pressure caused by a limited supply of brand-new park homes.
How does it work?
The service is on a no-sale, no-fee basis and includes property valuation, arranging viewings and negotiating with buyers.
Floorplans are created and photography arranged. In partnership with Sell My Group, premium listings are created on estate agency services, Rightmove and On the Market websites.
Sellers benefit from comprehensive marketing coverage and gain immediate access to Quickmove’s existing list of registered buyers, all keen to purchase a park home.
Quickmove Sales Director, Mark O'Dwyer says,
The selling process
The process of selling a park home is more streamlined than selling a bricks and mortar property. Park homes do not need an Energy Performance Certificate. There are only a few forms to complete, including a Buyers’ Information form and Notice of Proposed Sale.
Valuations, naturally, depend on the location of the park home and on its condition. Quickmove establishes its valuations by comparing a park home to prices of park homes sold in similar locations within a recent period of time.
Quickmove’s fee is payable only on completion of the sale; there are no upfront costs. The only other factor, as with any sale of a pre-owned park home, is that 10% of the sale price is payable to the park owner.
Valuation to completion: Quickmove's nine-point plan
Quickmove’s nine-point plan takes sellers through from valuation to completion:
- Quickmove provides a valuation
- A marketing price is agreed
- The property is prepared for selling
- Photography and marketing takes place
- Viewings are arranged
- An offer is accepted
- A solicitor is instructed
- Park home sale forms are completed
- On completion, payments are made from the proceeds of the sale
