If you are a homeowner looking to move house, the process can be fraught, what with looking for a buyer, dealing with chains, and having to contend with estate agents’ and solicitors’ fees. And while the housing market is buoyant in some parts of the UK, it is stagnant in others. One way to simplify the process, is to consider purchasing through a part-exchange scheme.

How It Works

part exchangeIn order to sell new properties, most park operators offer part-exchange schemes where they will buy your existing property when you purchase a new park home. The way your property is valued varies, but a valuation will often carried out by two independent local estate agents. The park operator then purchases your existing home at an agreed price, which is offset against the price of your new park home. If you want to purchase a park home or just generally want to move home, this is certainly something to consider, as it takes the hassle out of what is already a stressful process.
