South Midlands team removes buying fears for Redditch house hunters
20 November 2012
A Redditch couple are celebrating after finding a cost effective and efficient way to secure their dream home.
Dave and Karen Allen were delighted to receive above the market value for their existing property after benefiting from a housebuilder’s part exchange plus scheme.
The young couple, who recently purchased at the new Persimmon Homes Pointers Way development, off Hewell Road, were pleasantly surprised to find the entire process stress-free as well as getting more for their existing property than expected.
Dave said: “Everyone says moving home is stressful but this was certainly not the case for us, it just couldn’t have been simpler.
“We did have a few initial concerns with part exchange such as getting a good price for our existing home and if Persimmon sold our house quickly where would we go if our new place wasn’t finished, but these worries were unfounded.
“We did our research and after speaking to the Persimmon team decided on the part exchange plus package. This instantly removed the fear of us having to sell our existing property.
“It was a pleasant surprise to get above the market price for our old property which Persimmon then sold really quickly but we have not had to move out and in fact have had a leisurely packing experience.”
The part exchange plus scheme is designed to speed up the buying process and provide a hassle-free solution for prospective buyers. As part of the scheme Persimmon arranges two independent valuations, agrees a market price and buys the customer’s existing property.
Alison Reading, Persimmon Homes South Midlands sales director, said: “The scheme is as simple as it sounds. There are no agent fees, no upsetting chains to break down and we handle the entire process making it effortless for our customer which is probably why it is becoming one of our most popular buying options.”
The Pointers Way development opened in August and features 171 new homes comprising two, three and four bedroom properties.
