Part Exchange Could Be The Key To Your New Dream Home
01 Feb 2014

IF you’ve seen the home of your dreams but still haven’t had your existing property valued – then part exchange could be the answer to a quick and hassle-free move.

The advantages to part exchange are numerous; there is no chain, valuations are obtained on your behalf, there are no agent fees and customers can secure their preferred plot at today’s prices.

In addition, the new homes developer deals directly with the estate agent on your behalf, leading to a faster and stress-free sale.

All this leaves you free to reserve the new home of your choice at your preferred development – of which there are plenty to choose from with award-winning Linden Homes.

Linden Homes has been running its successful part exchange scheme for many years, and during that time has helped countless customers in buying their new dream home.

These have included Marie Duff and Stefan Rostron – who recently used the incentive to help them upsize to a brand new three-bedroom detached home from their existing two-bedroom semi-detached property.

After their search for a larger home brought them to Linden Homes, human resource manager Marie and bench joiner Stefan (both 23) used part exchange to take the hassle out of selling their existing property.

Stefan said: “The scheme was great and hassle free. It was a fast process and did help alleviate any stress.
“We would definitely recommend a friend to Linden Homes, we have had such an exciting journey.”

Linden Homes sales director Steve Woomble said: “Part exchange remains hugely popular among potential customers who have an existing home 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.

“What could be simpler or easier with our hectic lifestyles than part exchange!”

If you are a homeowner and are eligible for part exchange, here’s what happens:

-    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 reserve 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.

Linden Homes is currently building across North East Lincolnshire, East Riding, North and West Yorkshire – with a range of homes to suit all tastes and budgets.
