Spicerhaart Part-Exchange & Assisted Move has enjoyed record growth 2019, with sales growing two-thirds (67%) by both volume and value compared to 2018 – which itself was a record year for the business.
In recent years, there has been a spate of initiatives to help first-time buyers get on the property ladder, from Help to Buy to Stamp Duty exemptions. And by and large these measures have had the desired effect: demand from first-time buyers seems to be getting stronger all the time. The latest figures from trade body UK Finance show first-time purchases up nearly six per cent year on year.
Part exchange and assisted move services are being increasingly used by housebuilders to help facilitate sales of new homes. PHPD chats to Neil Knight, Business Development Director at Spicerhaart Part Exchange and Assisted Move about the options available.
