A Timely Reminder About Linden Homes' Part Exchange Scheme
26 Feb 2013

Moving house often isn’t an easy process. It can be fraught with uncertainty – it can be heartbreaking. Even once you’ve found the house of your dreams, selling your old home can sometimes throw a spanner in the works.

Many people who would perhaps like to move to something more modern say that the worry of selling their old home – with its leaky roof and rotting window frames – is enough to put them off moving house.

So perhaps it is worth being reminded about Linden Homes’ Part Exchange Scheme*.  This has proved an extremely useful tool for many purchasers who have an existing home to sell: Under the scheme, Linden Homes becomes your guaranteed buyer – and takes on the task of having your existing property valued and marketed.

With that side of the move dealt with, you can concentrate on buying your new home because you won’t need to arrange viewings of your old home, you don’t need to pay any estate agents fees and there are no brittle property chains to threaten your moving plans.

Mark Docherty is Linden Homes’ sales and marketing director:

“It is a scheme that has worked really well for many Linden Homes’ buyers. They have told us that knowing some of the stress and frustration of selling would be removed actually inspired them to go ahead with plans to buy a new home. These are some of the comments our customers have made about the Scheme.”

Stephanie and Justin Walford, Fishbourne said: “We’d been getting nowhere when we were trying to sell the old house ourselves. Once we found the home we wanted the Linden Homes Part Exchange Scheme took away the hassle of selling. It also freed up a few thousand pounds in saved estate agent fees. But most importantly it meant we could get on with the move.”

Harvey Panrucker said: “Having already had a difficult time selling our old home, the Part Exchange Scheme appealed to us very much. We decided to go ahead and Linden Homes arranged for several valuations: We were pretty pleased with the offer Linden Homes made us for the old home. They became the guaranteed buyer so we knew the sale couldn’t fall through. We left all the dealings with the estate agents to them – and they paid the fees. It turned out to be a really straightforward move for us.”

Linden Homes is offering its part exchange scheme at Bouverie Walk in Salisbury. This lovely gated development of just thirteen detached 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes is situated on the most south-western tip of this ancient, historic city. The homes are spacious, beautifully finished and well located – Bouverie Walk combines the convenience of city living with the freedom and space of the countryside.

The traditional exteriors don’t prepare you for the light and airy contemporary spaciousness inside: These homes have been really thoughtfully designed with the modern family in mind. While each home at Bouverie Walk is different, all of them share the high specification interiors that are the trade mark of this award winning house builder.

Because they are brand new homes, there is no expensive refurbishment and very little maintenance. They are energy efficient, very well insulated, secure and come with a ten year NHBC builders’ warranty. Such details will resonate with anyone who is currently struggling to run and maintain a much older property.

Mark concludes: “Have a think about Linden Homes’ Part Exchange Scheme. It may well provide the key to buying your new home.”
