Part exchange at Greensands: A stress-free way to upsize

Greensands Development by Bellway enable buyers to choose from a range of properties, two, three, four and five-bedroom houses ..

The ongoing pandemic has fuelled demand for larger homes – often dubbed, ‘the Race for Space’. It is little wonder, therefore, that house prices have risen four times faster than flats over the past year- leaving thousands of home-hunters across the UK at a loose end. With this in mind, Bellway is pleased to introduce its versatile development, Greensands – where buyers can choose from a range of properties, two, three, four and five-bedroom houses. Notably, Bellway is offering Part Exchange on the four and five-bedroom properties, allowing purchasers to move seamlessly into their new, larger home, without the hassle of agent fees and juggling long chains.

Set in the birthplace of King Alfred, Greensands enjoys a picturesque semi-rural location in the Vale of the White Horse. Families with children are well catered for, with a range of highly-regarded schools situated nearby; and for those looking for convenience, Greensands is advantageously positioned within easy reach of shops, restaurants, and green spaces.

Emma Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at Bellway Homes comments: “The events that have taken place over the past year have forced home-hunters to re-evaluate their priorities; and, unsurprisingly, space is now at the top of their wish-lists. Our selection of four- and five-bedroom houses at Greensands satisfy this need, and provide home-owners with a high-quality, contemporary specification for today’s requirements.

“The added benefit of Part Exchange will eliminate the stress often associated with moving or upsizing, and is a perk rarely offered by property developers in the current climate. We therefore urge prospective buyers to book a viewing as soon as possible, before this exclusive opportunity ends.”
