The Benefits of Part Exchange

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2012) - If you're looking to buy houses or flats for sale in London then you'll know how expensive the home buying market is. Why not take some of the stress out of moving and part-exchange your home. Barratt Homes could buy your home for 100% of its market value*, so you're free to buy one of theirs.

Barratt offers a hassle free Part Exchange facility that will ensure you have a quick and simple move, eliminating the stresses and extra expenses involved when trying to sell your existing home.

Part Exchange: what are the key benefits?

The three main benefits of Part Exchange are;

  • No estate agent fees to pay
  • No chains or last minute hitches
  • A guaranteed buyer for your existing home

No estate agent fees

If you choose to Part Exchange your home with Barratt, you potentially have a guaranteed buyer and a house to move into, so you won't have to fork out on estate agent fees. Why not save this money you would have spent on furniture for your new house or maybe a holiday?

No chains or last minute hitches

A lot of the stresses involved with moving home can be caused by relying on other people. If you're not worrying about your buyer pulling out at the last minute, you could be stressing over delays in other people moving further up the chain - or both. It's really frustrating when your plans have to change or be put on hold because of others.

This stress can be eliminated with Barratt's Part Exchange scheme. They'll buy your home directly from you so there are no chains to worry about. If everything goes to plan you could be in your new home in just weeks.
