"When we finally found our dream Taylor Wimpey property we faced a major problem – we still had our current home to sell. We had tried to find a buyer for our country house a few years earlier with no success and we were worried the same thing would happen again.
"So when we found out about Taylor Wimpey’s part exchange scheme we jumped at the chance to get involved. We used the initiative to sell our existing home to Taylor Wimpey for a fixed price and buy the five bedroom Blakeney property at Revival in York and we couldn’t be happier.
"Part exchange wasn’t something we’d considered but when we talked it through it was ideal. Like most people I was initially sceptical about the price we’d be offered for our old home but actually we were very happy with it, we felt it was more than fair – and being able to move without the stress, uncertainty and cost of selling on the open market was a massive boost.
"We were even able to stay in our old home until the new one was ready. Now we’re in it’s fantastic - very light and airy – and we love being able to just stroll into the city centre if we want to."
Mr & Mrs Mitchell, Revival residents
