According to a survey by Rightmove, properties now stay on the market for an average of 100 days, a record number since the survey began in 2002. For people looking for a way to sell their home faster with no hassle, and move into a new property straight away, Explore Living’s Assisted Sale Scheme at Grand Ocean, Saltdean may be the answer.
The Assisted Sale Scheme has been designed to make moving home as effortless as possible and there are no estate agency fees to pay. Explore Living will instruct an agent to value the property, monitor the marketing and manage the sale through to legal completion, taking all the hard work out of selling a home.
Mrs Zohren Razzaz, 56, took advantage of this fantastic offer by purchasing a two-bedroom apartment through the Assisted Sale Scheme at Grand Ocean. Zohren commented: “I recently had hip replacement surgery and was living in a three storey, three-bedroom house in Brighton town centre. I found it very difficult getting up the stairs so my daughter recommended I buy an apartment at Grand Ocean.
When my daughter and I saw the apartments at the development we instantly loved them, I needed an apartment with lots of lateral space and somewhere with good transport links into the town and Grand Ocean was just right.”
The Grand Ocean development is a collection of 180 one and two-bedroom apartments, of which show homes are available to view in the refurbished 1930’s art deco hotel. Explore Living has recently completed the restoration of the original hotel building, as well as the construction of the four new wings, providing a wide range of apartment designs at this perfect coastal retreat.
Zohren continued: “I was worried it would take me some time to sell my house and I wanted to move quickly so when I was told about the Assisted Sale Scheme I was delighted. It is a very good service which took the responsibility off my shoulders and made my move much easier. The scheme helped me financially too as I didn’t have to pay any estate agents fees.”
The homes feature Explore Living’s trademark high interior specification with electric under-floor heating, video-entry system, pre-wiring for Sky+ and HD ready in the living room, provision for wall-mounted flat screen TVs, plus an optional iPod dock and integrated sound system throughout the apartment.
