Change your mind - and your home

Wrea Green house hunters are being invited to a special event to show how buying a brand new home can be much easier than they think.

Homebuilder Redrow, noted for the quality of its homes and attractive streetscenes, is holding a Part-Exchange Event in the picturesque Fylde village to dispel the myths and minefields about buying a new home – and open the door to this ideal incentive.

With a number of homes available for part-exchange, primarily the Welwyn and the Balmoral, customers are invited to attend the event at Ricksby Grange on Saturday, January 28, to learn more about the homebuilder’s supportive scheme – and view the stunning show homes there.

Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire) says: “The cost of estate agents, getting involved with chains and living in hope of a buyer can turn the perfect property dream into a nightmare. Sellers can sometimes be let down at the last minute and it is heartbreaking to deal with.

“But Redrow’s part-exchange scheme can avoid all that by making buying a new house simple, straight-forward – and affordable.”

The fact that it is available in one of Redrow’s most picturesque locations - Wrea Green has won Lancashire’s Best-Kept Village award 15 times – is an added bonus.

And Claire adds: “Redrow has a number of incentives to help people turn their dream of buying a brand new home into reality, and our superb part-exchange scheme is one of the best.”

Designed to take away any stress, hassle and potential delays involved in selling an existing property, part-exchange is available where the value of a customer’s current home is at least 35% lower than the brand new Redrow house they have chosen to purchase.

Redrow arranges a part-exchange valuation on the property and, with agreement from both sides, effectively acts as a cash buyer, with people usually receiving an offer in as little as seven days. Buyers could be in a position to move almost straight away without any stress and, better still, no estate agent fees to pay.

There are currently two home styles available for part-exchange at Wrea Green, the Welwyn at £389,995, and the Balmoral, priced from £489,995, both of which are four-bedroom detached properties offering generous, open plan living spaces plus separate lounges designed to aid the ebb and flow of modern family life. The homes offer an exceptional degree of style and comfort.

Both styles are from Redrow’s Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection and have en-suites to the master bedroom, with the Balmoral offering a second en-suite to bedroom two, making it ideal as a guest suite or a haven for teenage members of the family.

With such stunning properties and the idyllic location afforded at Ricksby Grange, there will be no shortage of willing would-be residents for this delightful village with a wonderful community feel. And would-be buyers can learn how easy it could be to become one of its lucky inhabitants at the special Part-Exchange Event from 10am to 5.30pm on Saturday, January 28.
