Moving House Without The Headache (And Heartache)
21 May 2015

You want to move house. You have your heart set on a new home, but the thought of moving makes that heart sink. Finding somewhere new was the fun part. But you suspect selling your old home is bound to be a headache.

You know from past experience that it involves choosing an estate agent; discussing the value of your home; viewings; potential buyers dropping out; new buyers offering and haggling; tension as exchange dates come and go; brittle chains snapping leaving you high and dry.

Never mind headache, sometimes it’s simply heartbreak, as your old house sale falls through and your new home disappears over the horizon; a distant dream.

This is why Linden Homes devised the Part Exchange scheme.

Part Exchange takes away much of the potential heartache of house buying: The key to purchasing your new home using Part Exchange is that Linden Homes becomes your guaranteed cash buyer….Think about that – it’s one entire half of the moving home equation dealt with. You are free to buy with no chain, no delays and no estate agent fees.

Linden Homes instructs local estate agents to value your existing home. Once this is agreed, we arrange for a survey and then make you an offer. If you agree, then your home is marketed by us taking the stress away. You won’t have to move out of your home until your new Linden Home is ready.

Part Exchange is available at Hawthorn Mews in Bedhampton. Why don’t you go and have a look at the show home, secure in the knowledge that Linden Homes can take some of the house moving burden off your shoulders.

Hawthorn Mews is set just off Portsdown Hill Road. There is a selection of three, four and five bedroom homes available in this secluded development of beautiful and award winning Linden Homes very conveniently situated for the A3.

What really stands out about these homes is the originality of their design: Some of the homes have terraces with balconies leading from the first floor living room. Others are arranged over three floors, with the master bedroom and bedroom two on the third floor (each room with its own ensuite shower room). The living spaces – in terms of the living room and the kitchen/dining room – are spacious and well designed.

All the homes have fully fitted appliances in the kitchen, including fridge freezer, hob, oven, extractor fan, washer/dryer and dishwasher. All the appliances are guaranteed and flooring is included too.

Kelly Waterhouse moved from their old 1930s home to a brand new Linden Home because her family needed more room:

“We had ideally wanted another bedroom and investigated the possibility of doing a loft extension, but we felt that, even with the loft converted, the house still wouldn’t offer us the sort of space we really wanted. I wanted to live somewhere where everything works – where the doors aren’t all a bit wonky. We were very much coming round to the idea of a new build home.”

“We had looked at other new build homes, from other companies, but nothing was finished to such a high a standard as the Linden homes’ properties – I particularly loved the doors and I fell in love with the show home.”

“To be honest, to start with I had been concerned about leaving my lovely 1930s characterful home behind – with its walled gardens, four fireplaces and picture rails: In fact I wondered if some of my friends would think I was mad. But our new home is fantastic; everyone who has seen it is really impressed.”
