Alconbury Weald

Award winning developer Crest Nicholson is hosting an exclusive Part Exchange event on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th July between 10am and 5pm, at its sought-after development Alconbury Weald in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.


Potential purchasers will be invited by appointment only and will have the chance to find out more about the Part-Exchange process. Crest Nicholson’s friendly Sales Executives will be available on the day to answer any questions about the development, as well as an Independent Financial Advisor offering tailored financial advice and guidance on how the scheme can be used to secure their dream home.


What is Part Exchange and how does it work?


In simple terms, Part Exchange is trading a house you already own to move up the property ladder into your new home. Crest Nicholson purchases your existing property, and the value is taken away from the price of the property you are buying.


The scheme is the perfect solution for people who would like to sell up and move home, however, are deterred by the stress, hassle and cost, meaning they are living in a home which they have fallen out of love with or that no longer fulfils their needs. 


The process is robust and transparent, ensuring homeowners get a fair market value for their current home. Independent valuations are obtained from three different high-street agents and an offer is made off the back of these third-party valuations.


What are the benefits of Part Exchange?


  1. Guarantees a cash buyer for your home – a welcomed relief if you’re struggling to sell your current home
  2. As the process is between Crest Nicholson and the seller, this removes complicated chain delays, often making the moving process quicker and reducing stress
  3. You will receive a fair value for your existing home
  4. You can remain in your existing home until your new home is ready
  5. Crest Nicholson covers all estate agent’s fees, meaning sellers can avoid costs they would be paying if selling on the open market
  6. It is a streamlined transaction and purchasers are given professional support and guidance throughout the process


Karen Coulson, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, comments: “Part Exchange might usually be associated with buying a car, but some people are unaware that it is in fact also a route into home ownership. It’s a viable option for upsizers, as you essentially trade the property you own to move up the property ladder. A tricky aspect for many home movers is having chains delay your move when trying to sell a property, however Part Exchange removes this frustration, guaranteeing you a cash buyer and instead allowing you to enjoy the process of buying your new home. Our sales team is looking forward to welcoming customers for a coffee and a friendly chat about the home buying process with Part Exchange, so please do get in touch to book an appointment.”
