Cut Out the Middle Man with Part Exchange at Clarion Gate

With the latest reports showing the housing market is losing its traditional spring momentum*, homeowners wishing to move into a new home in the coming months may feel that their chances have been dashed. Thanks to Crest Nicholson’s Part Exchange scheme however, which is available on The Barnston house design at its Clarion Gate development in Chelmsford, homeowners can sell their home and move up the property ladder without the worries of trying to sell on the open market.

Annette Cole, Sales & Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “When struggling to sell their home on the open market, our Part Exchange scheme offers homeowners keen to move into a new property swiftly a far less-stressful move.

“Part Exchange is ideal for purchasers who want to move without the delays, hassle and costs associated with finding a buyer for their current property. They need only to identify the Crest Nicholson property they wish to buy, after which we will arrange for three independent local estate agents to value the purchasers’ existing property. Crest will make an offer within seven days and once accepted the purchaser can then reserve their new property in the knowledge that they have a certain sale.

“The scheme has worked well at several of our sites and at Clarion Gate in particular. Thanks to the safe, community atmosphere and good schools nearby, many couples and families are keen to trade up and put down roots here. Part Exchange enables them to do just that in a straightforward, hassle-free way.”

Arranged over two floors, the spacious three bedroom Barnston is ideal for young families or couples with plans to start a family. The ground floor comprises a large, open-plan kitchen/dining room, a separate living room, as well as a cloakroom and large garage. The family bathroom and three bedrooms, including the master bedroom and second bedroom which both afford an en-suite bathroom, are situated on the first floor. In addition, the master bedroom benefits from spacious built-in wardrobes.

Clarion Gate comprises an elegant collection of 153 traditional and contemporary styled two, three and four bedroom houses and one and two bedroom apartments. The stylish properties at the development are arranged into two distinct, yet equally attractive areas centred around a striking village green; ideal for playing outdoors.

The development is also within the catchment area for an excellent range of primary and secondary schools both in the state and private sector, offering families an attractive opportunity to make the most of the catchment area.

Nearby Chelmsford Station provides fast and efficient services to London Liverpool Street taking approximately 35 minutes. Alternatively, the A12 is just a short drive from the scheme and provides direct routes south to the Capital and Colchester to the north.
