Taylor Wimpey customer sells their home and secures a new one in just 48 hours
Many people think that it will take several months to find the perfect home, but for Andrew Griffiths, 29, and his partner Jenna Ray, 28, this was not the case. After falling in love with a four-bedroom Shelford at the Taylor Wimpey Brunel Rise development, the pair had reserved the property, and sold their own, in the space of just 48 hours. This was thanks to Taylor Wimpey’s Part Exchange scheme, which was so successful Andrew’s brother decided to follow in their footsteps and reserve a home using Part Exchange, just five doors down.
Andrew and Jenna were previously based in a two-bedroom house in Didcot for two and a half years before deciding to upsize. With a wedding on the horizon, the couple wanted to secure a new home together before the celebrations. Andrew’s former property was a much loved new build, so it seemed an obvious decision to look into new builds again. On the hunt for a new home, Taylor Wimpey houses appeared online, and the stylish interiors persuaded Andrew and Jenna to visit the showhome at the Brunel Rise development.
It was during this visit that the pair found their dream home, a four-bedroom Shelford, perfectly positioned in a quiet cul-de-sac, just round the corner from Andrew’s parents. However, after experiencing difficulties trying to sell their previous property Andrew and Jenna were concerned that this issue would arise again. But, with Taylor Wimpey’s Part Exchange scheme, the couple were able to purchase a new home instantly, as Taylor Wimpey bought their previous property. This process removes the buying chain, streamlines the purchasing process and enables homebuyers to secure their desired property.
Andrew confirms the ease of Part Exchange; “From the moment we walked in the Sales Executives Alex, Melissa and Elysia were amazing, they were always available and keeping us updated where possible. With Part Exchange, they took us through everything step-by-step, and you weren’t just another person, they really cared about making sure you understood everything. Taylor Wimpey recommended us a mortgage advisor who provided the exact figures that we’d need to progress with Part Exchange. It was completely hassle free and so much easier because you’re not part of a chain; instead it’s a personable, seamless approach.”
Andrew and Jenna’s positive experience continued after their purchase, the couple moved into their new home at the end of September 2017 and could not be happier. Andrew commented;
“The house is absolutely incredible, it has been brilliant from start to finish and we love every bit of it. I still can’t believe it, in 48 hours we had our dream home. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a new build to go through Taylor Wimpey, so much so I advised my brother to do so. He reserved about three weeks after me and we now live five houses away from one another; he also used Part Exchange and commended the smooth, and simple process. ”
Jenna and Andrew had to take into consideration the future and the possibility of little Griffiths’ when purchasing their home. Luckily Brunel Rise is in the middle of three primary schools, with higher education facilities nearby, so when the time comes the couple will be spoilt for choice. The homes at Brunel Rise have the best of both worlds with a range of shops and amenities in a close vicinity, whilst being in amidst peaceful, rural surroundings.
