Quickly Part-Exchange Your Way To Riverside Lifestyle In Godalming
14 Nov 2013

The mix of location and quality means award-winning Linden Homes’ collection of new properties at Riverside in Godalming, Surrey, has proved as popular as expected.

For househunters keen not to get left behind, there are a variety of ways to secure one of these thoughtfully designed houses or apartments on the banks of the River Wey – including Linden Homes’ Part Exchange scheme which short-cuts the hassle of moving.

In fact, it works so well that buyers who act quickly could be celebrating Christmas in their new home.

By offering one quick, trouble-free agreement with Linden Homes as the guaranteed buyer, Part Exchange takes out estate agents’ fees and the problems with chains which can scupper even the most secure-looking move.

Eligible home-hunters choose from a selected range and within seven days a valuation on their property will be made by three local estate agents and a cash offer made. Once accepted, the only thing left to do then is set a move-in date and get packing.

The Part Exchange experience worked out well for happy customer Sarah Lord. With her husband Tom, she bought a four-bedroom house at another Linden Homes waterside development, Water Colour in Redhill.

Sarah, a partner of a Mayfair-based wealth management firm, said: “Part Exchange has made things easier. It meant that our property was sold in time to complete on the new one, and it took out the hassle of having to liaise with agents. It’s been cost effective with not having to pay the agents too.”

For buyers who join the 18 households to have already reserved one of Riverside’s sought-after homes, benefits include having the well-heeled market town of Godalming on the one side and Surrey’s rolling countryside on the other.

Sales and marketing director for Linden Homes Guildford, Natalie Flint, said: “Some people put off making the move to their dream home because of the hassle and frustration that can often come with selling a property.

“Part Exchange offers a way to skip that step and make finding a new house or apartment a much speedier and calmer experience. Start now and you could be celebrating Christmas in your brand new home.

“There’s something for everyone at Riverside but I’m not surprised it’s been particularly popular among young families. It has that perfect mix of beautiful setting, top quality and achievable value.”

In common with all Linden Homes properties, each Riverside home comes with integrated kitchen appliances as standard, plus a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year customer care warranty for peace of mind.

The leafy development is a thoughtful arrangement of traditionally designed and very spacious two, three and four-bedroom houses as well as two-bedroom apartments. A play park entertains youngsters and access is open to the banks of the gentle River Wey.

For getting further afield, train commuters have a choice of two mainline stations each about a mile away, Godalming and Farncombe. Both run direct into London Waterloo in about 45 minutes. The A3 runs north-south and Guildford is less than 20 minutes away by car.

The list of attractions doesn’t mean buyers have to break the bank. Properties worth up to £600,000 are eligible for Help to Buy, which is open equally to first-timers or those moving further up the housing ladder with a deposit as low as five per cent.

It works by the government lending 20 per cent of the value of the property through an equity loan which can be repaid at any time or on the sale of the home. It means buyers only need to come up with a 75 per cent mortgage on top of their five per cent deposit.
