Part Exchange Your Way To A Brand New Family Home In Leicestershire
05 May 2015

Buying a new home can be an exciting, yet daunting experience – particularly if you have an existing property to sell.

But with its popular Part Exchange scheme taking the hassle out of moving house, buyers in Leicestershire can find out more about how it works at Linden Homes Midlands’ Trinity Brook development in Whetstone.

The development will host a Part Exchange Weekend on May 9/10, when home hunters can talk to the experts about how the scheme can help them move to a brand new dream property.

A number of four-bedroom homes are currently available and ready to move into now at Trinity Brook, perfect for those looking to move up the housing ladder.

The site, launched earlier this year, has already attracted interest from a number of buyers who have reserved their chosen home from plan.

If you have seen the home of your dreams but still haven’t had your existing property valued, part exchange could be the answer to a quick move.

Representatives from New Homes Part Exchange will be available on Saturday 9th May 10.30am – 5.00pm while the sales team will be on hand throughout the weekend from 10.30am until 5pm.

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 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.

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.
  • This is typically around 90-95 per cent of the average value returned by the surveyors, and will usually happen within seven days to a month.
  • Once you agree the offer, and subject to satisfactory surveys, Linden Homes becomes your buyer, freeing you up to put in a 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.

Trinity Brook offers a stunning selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes off Cambridge Road, catering for a range of budgets and lifestyle requirements.

Whetstone is perfectly positioned just five miles from Leicester, offering the best of both worlds for those who want to enjoy village life while being close to all that the city centre has to offer.

Convenient for commuters, the location also enjoys excellent road and rail links.

The show homes and sales and marketing suite are open from Thursday to Monday 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively contact the sales team on 0844 6442838.
