Make Your Move Happen Now With Part Exchange
03 Jun 2014

With the economy showing further signs of recovery there is increasing confidence in the housing market, – and it’s not just first time buyers who recognise that it’s a good time to buy a new home.

For those looking for a hassle-free way to move, Linden Homes can provide the ideal solution in the form of Part Exchange* – as Jim and Jean Hasnip discovered when they used the incentive to buy a property at Linden Homes Western’s Meadow Grove development in Newent.

“We wanted a home that was new, in perfect condition and located reasonably close to our family in Malvern, Worcester,” said Jim, 67.

"The property at Meadow Grove ticked all the boxes and when Linden Homes told us about Part Exchange, it was a crucial factor in our decision to move.”

With the scheme, Linden Homes becomes your guaranteed cash buyer and deals directly with the estate agent on your behalf – carrying out valuations and making an offer on your property within seven days – to make the sale as quick and stress-free as possible.

Since buying and selling is done in one easy step, movers are free to reserve the home of their choice at their preferred development. Jim and Jean secured their two-bedroom home at Meadow Grove using the scheme – with no estate agent fees to pay and no fuss.

“Part Exchange made the whole process smooth and straightforward,” explained Jim.

“Linden Homes gave us a very fair offer on our existing property and we were hugely impressed with the development’s salesperson, Vicky, and site managers, Wayne and Mark, who made everything fall into place very easily for us.

“Our new home carries the NHBC 10-year guarantee, is well-designed, energy-efficient and generally delightful.”

As well as Part Exchange, Linden Homes offers a number of schemes to help you get moving. With the government-backed Help to Buy* scheme, you could purchase a new home with a five per cent deposit. Here, homebuyers are given an equity loan of up to 20 per cent of the value of any new-build home – up to £600,000 – which can be repaid at any time or when the home is sold. Or, with Assisted Move*, Linden will sell your home, deal with the estate agents, pay your fees and ensure you get the best price for your existing home.
