Buying a house can be complex enough without the trials and tribulations of selling an existing property especially when the property market is fluctuating.

However, when people come to sell their property, they may not be fully aware of the various types of Part Exchange schemes that are on offer. For buyers in Doncaster, all these stresses and strains can be eradicated in one easy move, with the helping hand of a local housebuilder – David Wilson Homes.

In fact, the five star housebuilder is offering a fantastic opportunity for those looking to purchase their dream home in Doncaster.

And one local development that has experienced particular success through the Part Exchange schemes is David Wilson Homes’ Woodlands Walk, which is based in Branton.

Out of the 20 legal completions that have taken place at the site to date, 11 of these have been via Part Exchange and Part Exchange Xtra, meaning 55% of the properties have been sold through the scheme.

David Waddington, Sales Operations Manager at David Wilson Homes, advises on how hopeful house buyers in Doncaster can take advantage of the scheme: “Part Exchange is something that varies from company to company – but most follow a similar blueprint. The basic idea is that if you would like to buy a new build property, the developer will purchase your home from you in exchange. At David Wilson Homes, the property you are looking to buy would need to be more expensive than the one that you want to sell, and the price offered to you will be a fair reflection of the market value. The company uses two independent valuations to determine the offer price and buyers can then move out/in as soon as the new home is ready.

“As an alternative option, David Wilson Homes offers an exclusive Part Exchange Xtra scheme, which gives buyers the opportunity to achieve the best price for their current home. Not only will we support you in the marketing of your home, we will also guarantee that if it hasn’t sold by an agreed date, we will buy your current home and take it in Part Exchange. The scheme provides buyers with an assurance that both their sale and purchase are secure, whilst giving them the opportunity to create their dream home by choosing options such as fixtures, fittings and furnishings, subject to the stage of construction.

“The third variation of Home Assisted Move offered at David Wilson Homes is known as Movemaker – an agency assisted selling scheme. This is where you can reserve a property at the early build stage. The housebuilder will then instruct an estate agent who will arrange a valuation of your current property. Once the selling price has been agreed, the Movemaker Agreement can then be completed and the estate agent will begin to market the property. Once a property is reserved, even if it is currently being built, the customer has the peace of mind that the price is fixed. When a buyer has been found, the estate agent will help to complete the sale smoothly and efficiently with agency fees covered by David Wilson Homes.”
