If you’re looking to move up the property ladder or need a larger home for your growing family, Part Exchange could be the perfect way to move into your ideal new home. If you are unfamiliar with Part Exchange our quick guide can help you learn more.

What is Part Exchange?

Part Exchange is a quick and easy way to move up the property ladder by selling your home to your house builder, so you can move without a chain, no delays, no estate agent fees and no time spent  putting your home on the market.


Apart from having a guaranteed buyer for your home, the rest of the home buying process works the same way as a standard purchase. Your house builder will be able to provide you with advice and guidance on independent mortgage advisors who provide free and independent mortgage advice.

What are the Benefits of Part Exchange?

From a quick, and simple transition to saving money on estate agent fees, there are many reasons why Part Exchange is appealing to homeowners.

A Smooth, Stress-Free Transition

Part Exchange is perfect for homeowners who are looking for a smooth transition from their previous property into their new home. Since you have a guaranteed buyer for your home you don’t have to go through the stressful process of marketing your home on the housing market.

Quickly Sell Your Current Home

Having a guaranteed buyer also means that the process of selling your home will be quicker and hassle free. If you take advantage of Part Exchange, you could have an offer for your home in as little as 5 days and there’s no lengthy property chain to hold up proceedings. This means that you’ll have reliable timescales to work to and there’s no risk that a buyer will change their mind.

Easy Planning and Firm Timescales

Since you’ve removed the risk of a third party causing delays, you will be able to organise the move ahead of time. This makes Part Exchange an attractive option for growing families who don’t have time to marketing their property or re-organising their moving plans.

Save Money on Estate Agent Fees

Part Exchange plans are also popular amongst homeowners who are looking to avoid paying estate agent fees. Since you are dealing directly with the home developer, you can avoid spending money on “middle men”. This will also make the process of moving home simpler as there are fewer channels to go through when selling your current home.
