Part exchange makes buying simple as UK housing market stalls

As house hunters across Britain struggle to sell their current home, one solution often overlooked is the part exchange schemes offered by housebuilders.

Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire’s popular part exchange scheme is keeping things moving and making buying simple.

And it’s easy to see why the initiative, now available on selected houses at the Emerald Green development in Penistone is so in demand.

New research from RICS – the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors – reveals that house sales across Britain slumped to an all-time low in 2011.

Prices are falling too – with 23 per cent more estate agents reporting a decrease in October than in September.

But if you are serious about moving, Taylor Wimpey can help.

Sales staff at Emerald Green are on hand to guide prospective purchasers through their part exchange programme which allows the national housebuilder to act as a cash buyer for your home.

As well as guaranteeing a fair price for your old house, the initiative cuts the need for costly estate agents’ and solicitors’ fees, so takes the stress out of changing address.

As Anne Bagshaw, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, explains: “Trying to sell your house on the open market is extremely tricky at the moment – and sellers across the UK are having a very difficult time.

“As prices stall or even fall, waiting for that elusive buyer could cost you even more time and money in 2012.

“That’s why our part exchange scheme works so well. It means you can always sell your home, whatever the market conditions, and avoid missing out on the new property you’ve been waiting for.

“It’s a win-win situation so if you are interested contact our sales team who’ll be happy to tell you more.”

Currently available at Emerald Green is a selection of two bedroom apartments, three and four bedroom townhouses and four and five bedroom detached homes, with prices from £89,995.
