SAVE time and money when selling and buying a new home in Southport.

That’s the message from Elan Homes as the homebuilder prepares to host a part exchange event at its popular Balmoral Gardens development this Saturday (April 15).

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Home in the North, said: “We recognise that for people looking to move up the housing ladder, having to sell their existing property before they can buy a brand new home can be stressful. We’re here to help make moving as simple and straight forward as possible, saving buyers time and money.

“In simple terms, part exchange means we’ll buy the customer’s home so that they can purchase a new build home from us. It effectively offers the reassurance of having a guaranteed cash buyer without the complication of a slow moving chain or last minute haggles over the price.

“We aim to exchange contracts within 28 days. There are no hidden costs as we’ll pay the survey and agent fees on the customer’s home. It’s also a convenient option as people who sell in this way will be able to remain in their existing property until their new Elan home is ready to move into.”

Balmoral Gardens offers a good choice of two, three and four-bedroom homes, with prices from £195,995.

Among the properties eligible for part exchange is the four-bedroom detached Sheldon, priced from £312,995.

It offers 1,125 sq ft of living space including open plan kitchen, dining and family room with two sets of French doors, offering easy access to the rear garden; plus separate lounge at the front of the property.

Upstairs, the main bedroom benefits an en-suite, leaving the family bathroom to serve the remaining three bedrooms.

The Sheldon is among the homes being built to Lifetime Homes standard with wide doorways and well-planned living spaces designed to accommodate mobility aids or for a wheelchair to turn.

Located on Balmoral Drive, the homes at Balmoral Gardens, offer the chance to live within an established community, with a choice of schools rated good and outstanding nearby. Independent shops, tearooms and gastro pubs are within walking distance, while the beach is around five miles away.
