Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire is reporting a surge in the uptake of its Part Exchange scheme with more than 100 legal completions so far in 2013.

On average, through Taylor Wimpey’s part exchange scheme, it takes just seven days to receive an offer for a house, in comparison to the uncertain open market which is often much slower.

Anne Bagshaw, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, explains: “Part exchange is an invaluable tool for homeowners looking to trade up into a stunning brand-new home without stress, hassle or hindrance.

“The incentive frees buyers up to move quickly and has been growing in popularity as sellers looking to upsize become frustrated with the open market.”

Part Exchange is designed solely for upsizers.

To qualify, a seller’s home should be worth no more than 70 per cent of the new home they wish to buy.

The scheme cuts out costly chains and estate agent’s fees with Taylor Wimpey organising a minimum of two independent valuations of a buyer’s property, undertaking a survey, agreeing a price and setting a completion date.

Anne concludes: “Not only does it save hours of laborious tidying for viewings with no guarantee it will find you a buyer – it clears away every potential obstacle in your path to that fantastic brand-new home.

“With a range of exceptional developments and homes offered across Yorkshire, anyone struggling to sell and seeking to upsize should definitely get in touch to see how we can help.”

Taylor Wimpey has a portfolio of developments across Yorkshire with many styles of homes available through Part Exchange. Local developments include The Carriages in Sheffield, The Banks, The Wickets and Kingfisher’s Walk in Rotherham, The Crossings in Barnsley, The Lavenders in Mexborough and Westlands in Auckley.
