FANCY moving into a brand new house - even if you haven't already sold your current home?

Moving up the property ladder is an exciting prospect, but many homeowners are out off by the hassle of selling their existing property.

Recent research shows it takes on average 25 weeks to sell a home, but can be up to 34 weeks in some cases.

That's why a developer is offering a part exchange scheme to anyone wanting to move into its new estate in Cannington.

Crest Nicholson is guaranteeing a cash buyer, avoiding lengthy chains and taking move dates out of the process at its Grange Meadows scheme.

It means you can stay put in your current home until your new one is ready.

Through part exchange scheme, Crest Nicholson buys your existing property at a fair market price and deducts the value from the price of the home you are buying - you just pay the difference between the two.

Clare Brimble, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson South West, said: "Part exchange can be an ideal route towards moving up the property ladder and finding your dream home.

"It’s a great option for upsizers and growing families or those looking for a stress-free move.

"A tricky aspect for many home movers is having chains delay your move when trying to sell a property.

"However, part exchange removes this frustration, guaranteeing you a cash buyer and instead allowing you to enjoy the process of buying your new home.

"Crest Nicholson also allow you to remain in your old house until your new home is ready, which takes out a lot of the stress that can come with buying and selling at the same time.”

Crest Nicholson’s part exchange scheme requires that the value of your new Crest Nicholson property at Grange Meadows or any of its other developments, must be at least 30 per cent more than the value of your existing home.
