Make Moving Home Less Stressful

For many, the home moving process is something to be endured, rather than enjoyed. The risk of disappointment due to broken chains, unclear communication, and general confusion can lead many would-be movers to stay put. Data from Zoopla has shown that the average Briton only moves home once every 23.5 years. Considering the average mover may not have moved before, or took the plunge over 20 years ago, is it any wonder the general population finds the whole process overwhelming?
A recent Hyperoptic survey of 2,000 UK adults on ‘the most annoying things about moving house’ has shown that 60% of people find the moving process stressful. Over the course of the last 18 months, many homeowners have found their dream homes bursting at the seams with an increase in remote working, growing families, or a desire for more outdoor space. This leaves homeowners with a challenging decision – to make do in their cramped homes or take on the stress of moving. However, an online moving platform could be the solution many homebuyers are looking for. Here are the key benefits of using iamproperty’s movebutler service:
Modernising the moving process
Modern technology has been deployed in almost every part of our lives. From booking restaurants, doctor’s appointments, and holidays to using apps to find jobs, long-lost relatives, and love. We can track our pizza from point A to point B. So, why can’t we expect to check in on the moving process in the same way?
Many forward-thinking estate agents and solicitors agree and are seeking modern property technology (PropTech) solutions that manage a high volume of transactions and administration with ease, whilst also providing clarity and transparency for clients.
Online moving platforms aim to make the moving process stress-free and speedy. Agents, buyers, and sellers love digital onboarding offered by online solutions, where ID checks can be done from home, on a smartphone and at a time that suits the user. Not only is this digital onboarding hugely convenient compared to driving to your chosen estate agent’s office during opening hours, but it also saves the agent two hours in administration time – and time saved on administration means that your agent can focus on the important things like progressing your house move.
Taking care of the legalities to speed up completion
Estate agents can also legally prepare their clients upfront using PropTech platforms. Data from iamproperty has shown that by taking this step, it can save up to four weeks on completion by speeding up the conveyancing process, identifying any issues earlier, and getting them rectified quickly.
The conveyancing process takes an average of 20 weeks, and as delays are one of the key reasons sales fall through, this pick up in pace is a revelation.
Clear communication from start to finish
Communication is key when buying or selling a property and bad communication is often one of the main issues in the process. 26% of movers say that the process would be improved by better communication. With access to a moving platform, movers can check on progress via their own user-friendly online dashboard. No picking up the phone unnecessarily, no sending chaser emails, and instead, being able to check progress updates at a time that suits you.
Over 900 estate agents are using the iamproperty movebutler platform, onboarding over 100,000 clients in less than a minute per client. Modernising the moving process is something that benefits everyone. Forward-thinking agents using iamproperty movebutler are saving their clients time on completion, making the moving process easier and more enjoyable – just as it should be!
