New Year, new home for local family thanks to our Part Exchange Scheme

Car sales support manager Rachel Seal and her husband Shaun were able to start the New Year in a brand new home using our award-winning part exchange scheme.

Rachel had lived in Carlisle her whole life, but the couple – who share their new home with Rachel’s 15-year-old daughter Olivia – were keen to lay down roots out of the city after being inspired by other family members who made the move to village life.

Rachel and Shaun – who also live with a puppy and two cats – decided on a four-bedroom property at our St Andrew’s View development in Thursby, and moved into their new property last month.

Rachel said: “I’ve lived in Carlisle all my life, but we’ve always had our sights set on Thursby as it’s just so idyllic, but close enough to the town centre so that all amenities are easily accessible. We began looking at options last autumn, and as my parents already live in a Story Home and I’ve admired the quality of the build and finishing touches, we approached Story Homes to see what they could offer.

Rachel continued: “We probably wouldn’t have moved home so quickly, but when we heard that Story Homes offered a part exchange scheme, we jumped at the chance as it would just make the whole process more convenient and would mean we could start the New Year off in our new home.”

Rachel said: “Using part exchange was really straightforward and the whole process took no longer than five weeks. Our sales executive Tracey was so helpful and informative and helped us to achieve the offer we wanted. We couldn’t be happier with our new home. The layout is perfect, there is excellent attention to detail and the development is beautiful – and it was ready to move into straight away. Since moving in, nothing has been too much trouble, and the service has been truly impeccable. We feel completely settled and content in our new house.”

Tracey Brown, sales executive at Story Homes, said: “We’re very happy to have helped Rachel and Shaun with their move. The beginning of the year is a time for fresh starts, so it’s always nice to see a family move into their new home with the whole year ahead of them to look forward to. With its part exchange scheme, Story Homes buys a customer’s property for up to 100 per cent of its market value, effectively acting as a cash buyer for the house. A major advantage of our part exchange scheme is that you don’t get caught up in a chain with the possibility of losing your buyer or have to worry about any last minute hitches – so with no estate agent fees and no chain, this scheme takes away the stress of a house move.
