The ‘Moving Solutions’ package means you can quickly move in to a brand new home without stressing out, while Taylor Wimpey take care of the sale of your existing home and all the associated moving costs. Plus, more than anything it removes the hardest and most demanding part of moving – relying on others!
Dave says: “It literally enables you to trade in your old home for a brand new one and takes all the uncertainty out of the buying process. Indeed, some 20% of our business is now conducted this way, as a helping hand to needy purchasers. We have probably the biggest exchange budget of all the major housebuilders, so I urge anyone whose ability to purchase is determined by the sale of another property to come and talk to us – as we can quickly help to get a move on. “
Taylor Wimpey starts by reserving the new home of your choice and arranging two independent valuations on your existing property. And then one of three innovative schemes is applied to get you moving. EasyMover allows you to reserve your new home at a fixed price for eight weeks, while Dave takes care of the HIPs, plus the estate agents – as well as paying their fees – and basically manages the whole process from selling your old home to completion.
He explains: “You really have nothing to lose. A helping hand like this can be the difference between staying put and making that dream move – and EasyMover can be the quickest way to achieve this especially as we often have completed properties that people can snap up straight away.”
Part Exchange, meanwhile, guarantees a buyer, a fair price and no worries over a moving date for the existing property, or being let down by banks, solicitors and even buyers pulling out. Subject to survey, Taylor Wimpey West Midlands settle on a price for your old house and stick to it, along with a realistic completion date, so there’s no unpredictable chain to hold things up.
Dave adds: “There are no agent’s fees to pay either as we’re effectively buying your home from you – leaving you to move in to your new home as and when you’re ready – plus we can even accommodate ‘chainbreaker’ deals whereby we step in and purchase another property further down the chain if things fall through. This stops the purchase getting held up, or even grinding to a halt – and our customers tell us it provides extra peace of mind.”
A new and increasingly popular addition to the ‘Moving Solutions’ scheme is Part Exchange Flexi, which offers the best of both worlds – guarantees and flexibility. If the Part Exchange offer is not as much as you anticipated then Taylor Wimpey allow you to reserve your new home for up to four weeks while trying to sell your old property at an agreed higher price. Then, if it sells within the four weeks at more than the Part Exchange offer you proceed in accordance with the EasyMover scheme.
If after four weeks your property remains unsold, or you receive an offer at or below the Part Exchange offer, Taylor Wimpey guarantee to buy your property on a Part Exchange basis at the original offer price. It really is a win-win situation!
Dave concludes: “I’m not exaggerating when I say that many of my customers are absolutely overjoyed when we take their old home off their hands, as quite often it’s been on the market for a while and they despair of it ever being sold. It goes without saying that moving house is a major life change, so if I can lighten the load and make it all easier to cope with, then that’s very rewarding and gratifying.”
