Most people are familiar with the concept of Part Exchange, effectively trading in your current home for a new one. Samantha Corbett, the expert Part Exchange Manager at Harron Homes Yorkshire explains why Harron Homes’ Part Exchange scheme is the perfect solution for a hassle-free move.
Having held similar positions for years at other housebuilders, Sam is familiar with the pros and cons of the various schemes on offer within the industry.
“What stands out about Harron’s Part Exchange scheme is our team isn’t limited to purchasing specific types of properties. We are open to various types which other builders wouldn’t consider – leaseholds, apartments, listed buildings – and they don’t even have to be local to Harron. We can purchase anywhere in England.
“The obvious benefit of Part Exchange is that it cuts the chain, so it prevents buyers from having to rely on others to move successfully. In addition, the only time estate agents are involved is when we arrange for three local independent agents to value your home to ensure we offer full market value for it. There’s no fee for this service either, so it’s really a win-win for the customer. Moving is stressful enough without having to navigate estate agents and solicitors while selling your existing home.
“It’s a very customer focused service, my role is designed to make everything as smooth as possible on their end. Not many builders have their own Part Exchange team, leaving customers to still deal with third parties. All my customers have the benefit of being able to contact me directly with any questions or concerns, and I’m able to provide updates instantly without having to follow up with external parties.
“There’s a lot to be said for the level of security Part Exchange offers too. Not only does it remove the need to negotiate offers, but it means there’s no concern with the sale falling through later down the line since selling to Harron doesn’t rely on us securing a mortgage.
“With this many benefits, Part Exchange is definitely worth considering at least!”
