Be Free Of Chains With Part Exchange And Take The Hassle Out Of Moving Home
05 Aug 2013

MOVING house can be an exciting, yet daunting experience – particularly if you have an existing property to sell.

However, Linden Homes’ popular Part Exchange scheme is designed to take the hassle out of moving, giving customers peace of mind and the guarantee of a brand new home without the stress.

What’s more – with Linden Homes as your guaranteed cash buyer, there are no chains to break and customers can stay in their existing home until their new one is ready to move into.

By opting for part exchange at a brand new development, customers also have the chance to pick their preferred plot from the drawing board and reserve their new home from plan. This is currently proving popular at Linden Homes’ Aspire and Poet’s Corner developments in Warmington (on the edge of Northamptonshire) and Peterborough and The Gallery at Milton Keynes.

Among the many customers to benefit from part exchange are commuters Alice and Steven Chalmers have recently relocated (to Cambridgeshire) – thanks to Linden Homes being able to sell their existing property 350 miles away.

Linden Homes stepped in to assist the couple in not only selling their two-bedroom property in Glasgow through part exchange, but offering them their dream home – spacious and close to work.

Steven explained: “We were living on the outskirts of Glasgow in a two bedroom semi-detached house. We relocated to Cambridgeshire for work, and were looking for a three-bedroom property.

“We would not have been able to move to our new home at this time without the part exchange scheme. By using the part exchange scheme we were able to purchase the house we wanted.”

Providing you and your existing property meet certain criteria, Linden Homes will then make you an offer for your existing property, based on the valuation reports by the local estate agents, leaving you free to reserve your new dream home.

Here’s how the part exchange scheme works:

  • Linden Homes will arrange for at least two independent valuations of your existing home and will make you an offer based on their suggestions.
  • Once you agree the offer, and subject to satisfactory surveys, Linden Homes becomes your buyer, freeing you up to put in reservation on your new home.
  • After that, it's a case of setting a moving-in date, boxing up your things, and basking in the relief of a quick chain-free move to the home of your dreams.
  • You can stay in your existing home until your new one is ready.
