Recent research[1] has shown that one in five people looking to move to a larger home believe it’s harder to move up the property ladder than get on it in the first place. What’s more, 43 per cent believe finding and financing a second home is just as difficult as buying their first.

It will therefore come as welcome news to many that with Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties’ fantastic Part Exchange scheme*, moving home is a breeze.

Available at its Abbotswood development in Romsey, Part Exchange helps home buyers struggling to sell their current property make that all important move to a more spacious home.
