Home Exchange - An Alternative Way To Move Home
Living Property could get you moving home using ‘home exchange’.
The property space has long seen developers of new homes buying in their purchasers properties and then selling the exchanged property on. This approach is typically considered by developers at times when the property market slows and the pendulum swings towards a market that favours buyers over sellers, who use it to shift new build housing stock.
It is entirely possible to translate part exchange and turn it into ‘home exchange’ in the resale market. To deliver a successful exchange each homeowner will want the other sellers property to match their requirements, such criteria is likely to be price, accommodation and location.
So the approach is simple, we flag those homes as ‘Exchange Considered’ and then we work to match sellers and their buying requirements. It's like people dating but with property!
Home exchange can also be used to close broken sales chains with ‘chain-breaking’, this can occur when the seller at the top of the chain buys in the bottom of the chain.
Whilst home exchange is not a ‘silver bullet’ and the answer for all sellers it might just work for some and help those that need to move, especially those that need to downsize.

Normal sales fee applies and if you are already on the market with an estate agent then you should consider the terms of that agency agreement before marking contact with Living Property to avoid paying two sales commissions.
