WEEKS rather than months could be all it takes to secure a buyer and move to a new home in Glastonbury with help from Elan Homes.

Figures from* suggest that the average time to sell a home in Glastonbury is 132 days or almost four and a half months.

With the final countdown of new Elan homes at Avalon in Glastonbury underway, those with a property to sell may fear they’ll miss out while they try to secure a buyer.

The good news is the homebuilder is offering to help sellers.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball explained: “Our final new homes in Glastonbury are both four-bedroom homes, well-suited to modern family life. Recognising that people considering buying one of these homes are likely to have a house to sell first. We have a choice of schemes to help.  Part exchange is a speedy solution for those who want to buy a more expensive home than the one they’re selling. It’s a great way of saving time and money as we effectively act as a guaranteed cash buyer for the customer’s home. There’ll be no last-minute haggles over the price or complications of a slow-moving chain.  Instead, you could exchange contracts in a matter of weeks and enjoy a quick and simple move.

“Alternatively, we’ll work with a trusted agent to market the customer’s home on the open market via our EasyMove scheme. With EasyMove it doesn’t matter if they’re moving up the housing ladder or downsizing.  When they receive an acceptable offer, they’ll be able to reserve their new home from us. Contracts on the two properties will be exchanged simultaneously and we’ll even pay the agent’s fees.”

The final homes available at Avalon are both four-bedroom detached Broughton style properties, priced from £465,000.

The Broughton features a lounge at the front, with double doors leading through to the dedicated dining room, which in turn connects to the open plan kitchen and family room. Both the family room and dining room offer direct access to the rear garden via French doors.  

There’s also a study, perfect for home working, plus a handy utility and a cloakroom.

Upstairs, two of the bedrooms have an en-suite, meaning the family bathroom serves just two bedrooms.

Located on Old Wells Road, the new homes at Avalon are taking shape less than 10 miles from Worthy Farm, home of Glastonbury Festival.

Glastonbury Tor offers a chance to explore the outdoors, including a butterfly trail, there’s also the historic abbey, plus all the amenities people want from a neighbourhood including restaurants and gastro pubs, high street stores, quirky independents and a regular market.
