Part exchange is the key to Flintshire couple's move

Sandra and David Walker found the smoothest route to a luxurious brand new Redrow home was to simply part exchange their previous property.

The couple were impressed by how easy and stress-free it was to make the move to Northop Park, in Northop, a sought after development featuring traditional designs from Redrow’s award-winning New Heritage Collection.

It was a four-bedroom Cambridge home overlooking the green which caught the eyes of Sandra, 44, and David, 47. When they found out Redrow was able to act as a cash buyer for their existing property in Wepre, they seized the opportunity to make a move from the house they had outgrown.

Sandra said: “We’d had our house up for sale for over a year and could have potentially waited months before we found a buyer. Instead, Redrow made it really easy for us by offering to take it off our hands in part exchange for our new home. We were pleased with the value we received and really, it was part exchange that made everything possible for us.”

Sandra added: “We love the stylish features of our new home, and our favourite room is the open-plan kitchen, dining and family room, and we use that room more than any other in the house. It’s so welcoming and perfect for when we are entertaining friends and family.”

It’s no surprise that half of the new residents’ at Northop Park have used part exchange to make a move possible. It ensures there is no risk of being stuck in a housing chain and no estate agents’ fees to pay. Purchasers can move in as soon as their new home is ready.

The process begins with a part exchange specialist arranging obligation-free valuations of the home owner’s existing property. If the valuations are agreeable by all parties, Redrow Homes could arrange the part exchange in less than a week.

Generally, the customer’s own property must be worth a minimum of 35% less than the new build home.

Boasting an enviable semi-rural location, Redrow’s new homes in Northop offer residents an idyllic lifestyle. The picture perfect village is halfway between the Welsh towns of Mold and Flint, with easy access to the city of Chester via the A55.

The neighbourhood offers rural living at its very best and is home to Northop Golf and Country Club, two pubs, a post office, cricket club and a small number of boutique shops. The village green plays host to various village fetes throughout the summer.

A visit to the ‘Salisbury’ show home will give homebuyers a flavour of the quality finish offered in the four-bedroom designs currently available. Current prices are from £305,000 to £375,000.
