Elan Homes has properties ready to move into at St Thomas Priory near Stafford.

IT takes almost three months to sell a home in Stafford, but Elan Homes is offering homeowners the chance to speed up the selling and buying process.

The homebuilder is offering part exchange on selected properties at St Thomas Priory in Baswich, an intimate semi-rural development in a private courtyard, just a few miles from Stafford town centre.

With 3 and 4 bedroom homes almost ready to be occupied, sellers could soon become buyers and make a quick and easy move from old to new.

Sales Director Marie Morris said: “Analysis from suggests that it takes almost three months from a property in Stafford coming onto market to reaching a sold status; while unsold properties have been up for sale for more than four months. We appreciate that once someone has decided they want to move they want to do so sooner, rather than later. With that in mind, we will consider taking a customer’s home in part exchange towards the cost of a brand new home.

“It’s a really convenient way of climbing the housing ladder as it gives homeowners the reassurance of a confirmed buyer, plus they won’t have to move until their new Elan home is ready. If that wasn’t enough, we will also pay for the survey and agent’s fees on the customer’s property.”

Prices at St Thomas Priory range from £234,995 to £434,995.

Among the homes available with part exchange is the 4 bedroom Fulford, priced at £369,995.

It offers 1,486 sq ft of well-planned living space with an open plan kitchen, dining and living room at its heart. There’s also a separate study and a convenient cloakroom.

Upstairs, the master bedroom benefits an en-suite and dressing room, leaving the family bathroom to serve the remaining three bedrooms.

The specification includes modern fitted kitchen, well-equipped with oven, hob, microwave and fridge freezer; contemporary white bathroom suites with chrome taps; plus high efficiency gas central heating.
