Celebrate 25 Years of Making Moves Happen with Quickmove

2023 marks an exciting milestone for part exchange and park home specialists, Quickmove Properties. In Autumn we celebrate a quarter of a century helping customers buy new homes and moving with certainty, speed and peace of mind.

At the end of the last century our first office in Wiltshire managed property part exchange deals for retirement developers. 25 years later, our home exchange programme has been used by nearly 8,000 home buyers and our park home buying service now helps people with the entire process of buying on private retirement developments – from finding the perfect park to negotiating deals with park operators on behalf of buyers. We even help park home owners sell using our new Park Home Estate Agency service.

Sign of the times

Of course, the UK property market was very different 25 years ago. Adjusted for inflation, the average 1998 price of a home in the UK was a very affordable £105,766, a fraction of 2023’s asking price of £281,272! Also developers were building a range of property types, in contrast with today’s focus on apartments and flats. Interestingly, 7% of new build properties were bungalows back then, however this has reduced to less than 1% today, mainly because multi-storey dwellings generate greater profits for developers than land-hungry bungalows. Homebuyers in or approaching retirement will struggle to find affordable bricks and mortar bungalows, which is why the emergence of luxury park homes offer a viable alternative.

Bungalow-style park home lifestyle

More and more people are making the switch to the park home lifestyle. Modern homes are built to exacting standards and regulations, with luxurious furnishings throughout, meaning that downsizing can even enhance your lifestyle. With over 300 parks in our network. Quickmove can provide you with experienced advice and professional services to help ease the transition towards the next step in your life.

So if you’re considering a park home move in 2023, join Quickmove and we can help you move and celebrate this big year together.
