Get Moved Into Your New Home Before The Winter Puts In An Appearance
15 Sep 2016

As we all get back into a routine after the summer holidays, there’s a special invitation to those who want to renew their search for a new home.

And if you have an existing property to sell, Linden Homes Midlands can hold the key to your brand new home, and get you moved without the hassle.

A Part Exchange evening is being held at the Bishop’s Grange development in Higham Ferrers, on Thursday, September 29.

As well as sales professionals, there will also be a chance to chat with financial experts from New Homes Mortgage Helpline on how the popular Part Exchange incentive can help with a smooth and stress-free move.

According to recent research, more than a quarter (28 per cent) of UK homebuyers have had a house sale fall through after the buyer had accepted their offer.

The main reason for deals falling through (27 per cent) was the seller suddenly deciding they didn’t actually want to sell.

However, Part Exchange is a cast iron way of ensuring that your precious link in the selling and moving chain remains in tact, and crucially guarantees you a buyer for your existing property.

Linden Homes Midlands area sales manager Bev Lowndes said: “There are many advantages to using the part exchange scheme; there is no chain, valuations are obtained on your behalf, the new homes developer deals directly with the estate agent, and a fast sale usually happens quickly – in most cases under six weeks with the Part Exchange scheme.

“This is a fantastic scheme for homeowners who have an existing property to sell and are looking for peace of mind that they have a buyer who is not going to pull out on them at the last minute – as the figures from this recent study seem to show.”

If you are a homeowner and are eligible for part exchange, here’s how it 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 cash buyer, freeing you up to place your reservation on your new home.
  • Stay in your old home until your new one is ready to move in to.
  • 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.
