A Whitby couple have secured their dream home in the sought-after seaside town by swapping their existing home for a brand new one through David Wilson Homes’ innovative Part Exchange scheme.

When local businessman Alex Yates and his wife first bought a Barratt home in the picturesque town of Whitby two years ago they fell in love with the local area and the service that they received. So much so, that when it came for them to look at moving up the property ladder to a more spacious and luxurious house, they chose to stay close to home and move to the neighbouring David Wilson Homes development in Whitby; Scoresby Park.

Along with making the move stress-free and eliminating estate-agent fees, one of the benefits of the Part Exchange scheme means that while the Yates’ new home is being built they can stay in their existing home at no extra cost.

Purchasing a new house through David Wilson Homes’ Part Exchange scheme has enabled Alex and his wife to upgrade their property while minimising the hassle involved with moving. Their new home will provide them with plenty of open space combined with brand new, high quality design, as well as assured quality of customer service from the housebuilder, which holds a coveted five-star rating in customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation.

Mr Yates, said: “We’re thrilled to move with David Wilson Homes as we progress up the property ladder. Their fantastic service has meant that we can still enjoy our current location, but now with the additional space and luxury that we are looking for. Using the Part Exchange scheme was hugely beneficial, and allows us to continue working without disruption, as well as taking away the stress of selling our existing home. It also meant we got fair market value for our old house, which was a key benefit of using the scheme.”
