Five reasons to choose Igomove when selling your home

Posted on:

Whether you are looking to buy bigger, downsize or add to your portfolio of properties, North-East-based Igomove can make the process a smooth one.
That’s what our hybrid estate agency has been doing since it was launched in 2019 and that is great news for anyone looking to sell in the area.
Igomove has grown from a fresh-faced Hartlepool company to boasting directors focused on their own areas, with Teesside and County Durham catered for too.
The plan in the months ahead is to have more directors to increase the sales in Middlesbrough, Stockton, Darlington and Sunderland.
And the model clearly works because as the ‘for sale’ boards go up with Igomove it doesn’t seem to be too long before the ‘sold’ banner takes over.
Selling your home has become a lot easier in recent times and Igomove has seen sales rise too, so managing director Mark Flint and his team are there to help no matter where or when you want to do it.
Mark said: “We want to be as open and transparent as we can be to our clients. By doing this we have managed to grow quickly over the last two and a half years. This is something we strongly believe in.
“We have kept our fees low and believe our package is the best on the market. We pride ourselves looking after our clients from start to finish with a dedicated conveyancing team.
“You only have to look at our positive feedback from previous customers to see that we deliver on our promise. We have a really high referral rate to highlight how efficiently and effectively we are working.”
Igomove has brought around 400 houses to market this year alone and has sold around 450 at the time of writing.
Whether It is in Hartlepool, where the average asking price over the last year has been £143,000, or in the more exclusive Wynyard estate, where the average price stands at £419,000, Igomove has delivered in a buoyant market.
Service will be personal and smooth with an intention to get the deal done without fuss. It can also include everything from finding the right mortgage deal for you to recommending a conveyancer.
Here are FIVE reasons to choose Igomove:
Through vast experience of buying and selling over the years, Igomove’s management team recognised that stereotypically many estate agents have expensive packages, using commission charges or a percentage of the final sale price.
Igomove does not get involved in any of that. You will pay a fixed fee regardless of the house price and that can mean significant savings compared to other estate agents.
There are two property listing packages. The first is an up-front cost of £699 plus VAT and the second a £799 fee plus VAT on completion.   
Both of those include listings on RightMove, Zoopla and Prime Location and a range of benefits including a free valuation.
Once you have chosen to make that call to Igomove, the process will start when a dedicated agent from your area will come out to provide the free valuation. 
A professional photographer will take photographs to market your property in the correct manner, catching the right light and angle, and a floor plan will be drawn out. Once this is done the advert will be created ready to go on the market.
Those selling houses through Igomove will have the benefit of using recommended solicitors at a fixed and competitive rate and there will be statistics from Rightmove and Zoopla provided. The ‘for sale’ board is also not a hidden cost.
Igomove is looking to grow. As things stand they have three main areas covered, with Mark focused on Hartlepool, Michael Naylor leading the charge into County Durham and Danny Naylor fronting the Teesside arm of the business.
All three have experience of living and working in those areas so appreciate everything you are looking for when you are attempting to sell your home.
Danny Naylor has seen more and more Igomove boards pop up in Billingham, Wolviston and Wynyard. By pitching to the consumer at the right price and delivering, those sales are only going to grow.
Danny said: “I’ve always lived and worked in this area of the country and there is so much to offer. The good thing about Igomove is that we do not target specific people or houses – we believe everyone should be given a fair selling price regardless of where they live.”
And Danny is always at the end of the phone or an email ready to come out and see you to discuss your options, whether it is for a valuation or to plan your next step.
Igomove prides itself on being a 24/7 business. Gone are the days when the traditional 9-5 approach left you wondering how to make an offer on a weekend.
Communication was always seen to be something that Igomove’s directors, with 25 years’ experience in the property market, wanted to improve. That is why your Igomove team is always available to discuss what is on your mind.
Igomove will let you review your advert before it goes live on RightMove or Zoopla.
Michael Naylor said: “It’s brilliant that it has grown in this short period of time and people believe in what we do, reflected by our results.
“I knew that Mark Flint was doing something different to the way estate agents operated and I wanted to get on board.
“It’s exciting for us all and the model we have here works for the customer. That is why we want to roll this out to more areas across the region, starting with a bigger reach of Teesside.”
The extremely positive feedback from customers has helped the business grow through strong referrals. It is a situation that makes Igomove proud and determined to maintain in the weeks, months and years ahead.
On its Facebook page, one satisfied Igomove customer posted: “Would highly recommend Igomove for anyone wanting to sell/buy a home. We had a horrendous time with our buyer and their solicitor, and Michael and Laura were amazing throughout.
“I seriously must have got on their nerves with the constant phone calls! But they were patient, understanding and spent their available time trying to get our sale to go through.”
Another social media user said: “Igomove has been fab handling the sale of my house. It’s been a really quick and smooth process.
“I found the whole team professional and friendly, and they went out of their way trying to help me find somewhere to buy, taking the time to understand my position and what I was looking for and they really persevered to help me. I would definitely recommend using them.”
