David and Marie had always dreamed of moving abroad and toyed with the idea of leaving the UK for sunnier climates for many years. Finally, taking the plunge and following a day trip to look at a shortlist of several properties, they found their dream villa, a stunning property set on a hillside in Costa Blanca, Spain. The move was all set, but plans were suddenly halted when the buyer of their property dropped out and their chain subsequently collapsed.
A stressful time
Unable to proceed or make any of the necessary arrangements like booking removal companies, David and Marie needed to find another buyer. “We didn’t want to be in position where we could lose our villa. We had our hearts set on it and began to worry the move wouldn’t happen. It was so stressful”, explained Marie.
Following a recommendation from a close friend, who had previously used Spring’s part-exchange service quoting their experience as ‘seamless’
, David and Marie decided to contact Spring.
Doing the research
After reading horror stories of unscrupulous ‘fast house sale’ companies
who entice customers with high offers, then drop the price at the 11th
hour, David was apprehensive so carried out plenty of research to make sure he was choosing a reputable company. “Using someone reliable and independently rated was top priority for me. I made sure I did my homework by reading Trustpilot reviews and customer case studies, to ensure I would get the best possible service. We knew that some homebuying companies pay a lot less than the market value, but with Spring we were happy with their offer and the added reassurance of their Spring Price Promise”,
Property Advisor Marcus Dumbili was their dedicated contact at Spring and guided David and Marie throughout their homebuying journey. “Marcus was really great, and we were so impressed with how much he kept us updated on the progress of our sale. It was such as easy process, with no dramas. The price Spring agreed from the start was the price paid, so there was no haggling, and it was flawless”,
A happy new chapter
Now the sale has successfully completed, the couple are happy and settled in their Spanish villa with their two adorable Jack Russell’s, Poppy and Pip. “We are all really happy, the villa is beautiful, and we are loving the amazing weather. We are both excited to begin this new chapter in our life and we are very grateful to Spring for stepping in and rescuing our sale”.
We are delighted that David and Marie are enjoying their new life in the sun, and all the team wish them both (and their dogs) every happiness for the future. To find out how Spring can get you moving, get in touch
