105% Part Exchange
Working together to get you moving
Having a full appreciation of the difficulties of buying a new home, our 105% Part Exchange scheme makes it easier than ever to make the move to the Bloor home of your choice.
Having a full appreciation of the difficulties of buying a new home, our part exchange scheme makes it easier than ever for you to make the move to the Bloor Home of your choice.
How It Works
The company will arrange three valuations of your property by local estate agents. The agents will be asked to provide a price for a six week sale.
If your property is currently on the market, your agent will not necessarily be one of the agents who is asked to prepare valuations unless you have signed a specific contract with that agent, in which case please let us know.
Based on the valuations received Bloor Homes will make you an offer for your home. For a limited period only this will represent 105% of the 'six week sale price'.
If our offer is accepted, you can reserve your new Bloor Home, subject to contract and survey.
In order to reserve your new Bloor Home a deposit of £750 is payable. This is non-refundable.
Once the results of the structural survey are received, we will inform you of any issues, and on the basis that it is satisfactory, you can proceed with your purchase - and leave the rest to us, giving you more time to concentrate on moving to your dream home.
You do not have to worry about purchasers changing their mind and wasted solicitors fees, or agreeing completion dates with a long house chain - it's just you and Bloor Homes working together to help you move on time.
The Bloor Homes Part exchange Scheme is subject to our purchasing criteria and may be withdrawn at any time..
Available on selected plots & for a limited period - Please ask for details.

The recognition associated by winning an LABC Warranty Award for Excellence positions developers and house builders at the forefront of building achievement..
To win this award category, building companies associated with the development must demonstrate a high standard in technical competency and build quality, coupled with an ability to demonstrate project management, organisational skills and customer service.
In recognition of our high standards of design, construction and workmanship at The Gateway, we were proud to have been pronounced overall Regional Winner of the category.
Commenting on the award, Michele Rose, Sales Director for Bloor Homes South West said, “No one understands better than Bloor South West, that to turn a house into a home, requires far more than bricks and mortar. It requires a commitment to make additional vital contributions to the communities we create and to the environment as a whole.

Maintaining the highest standards of building and design excellence is something to which we are fully committed and makes us first choice for new homes in the region”.

“We’re delighted to have these wonderful new fully furnished show homes at The Gateway because when it comes to buying your own property, being able to see it as it really could be, can really help you make that all important decision” , says Gina Wilson, Regional Sales Manager of Bloor Homes South West.
“With a superb selection of two, three and four bedroom homes on offer, we’re sure to have something that will be of interest and, as you would expect from Bloor Homes, all or our homes are all built for you, at the most competitive price, but without compromise on style or quality.”

The Bray family
Part Exchange up to The Gateway
The Bray family move into a larger family home in Melksham, with the help of our Part Exchange offer, where they part exchanged their old property in return for a brand new four bedroom Didbrook house type.
Amanda and Steve Bray and family have lived happily in Melksham for several years. Realising that it was time to look for a bigger home and with the children doing well at the local school, the Bray family focussed on a local move. So when Bloor Homes at the Gateway, off Snowberry Lane in Melksham, offered them a fantastic part exchange offer on their current property it was music to their ears!
‘We’d been living just five minutes away’, said Amanda, ‘and were practically growing out of the rafters and had been for some time. So we decided that the time had come to look for something larger. We signed up to RightMove and looked at several houses in the area. But we found that although those properties ticked a lot of boxes, they didn’t tick all of them and it wasn’t until we saw the homes at The Gateway that we knew we’d come to the right place’.
With a house of their own to sell before they could trade up, Amanda and Steve were conscious of the stress, delays, and expense that could be incurred by having to sell their current property themselves. Luckily they quickly realised that their best plan would be to find a developer who could offer them a competitive Part Exchange plan and after speaking to Bloor Homes, it became clear that the Bloor Homes Part Exchange offer would be ideal.
‘Moving house is always going to be stressful, said Amanda, ‘but we’re very aware that the Bloor Homes Part Exchange plan took a lot of the stress, uncertainty and costs out of the process. It really was ideal for us’.
The Bray’s new home is a Didbrook house-type. This large double fronted four bedroom detached home has a spacious lounge, separate study - ideal for doing homework and separate dining area. There’s a fantastic fitted kitchen with breakfast area and utility off. An archway leads through to a delightful family/garden room with french doors opening out onto the rear garden which is perfect for outside entertaining and summer barbeques. All four bedrooms are double bedrooms, and two of them have their own en suite facilities. The master bedroom benefits from a dressing area and bedroom two has fitted sliding wardrobes. A family bathroom and a double garage and parking complete the impressive specification.
‘I absolutely love this house, admits Amanda. It’s big and it’s really well laid out with a huge ground floor. I also like the fact that there are separate rooms where we can have some privacy and I appreciate the fact that all the bedrooms are on the first floor which works better for us with the children. Our garden is really large as well and is great for outside games’
‘And we’ve been really impressed with the quality of the build and with helpful support we get from both the sales staff and the construction team’ added Steve, “in fact on the strength of our experience we’d definitely recommend Bloor Homes to anyone looking for a great home at the right price’.
Prices at the Gateway range from £134,950 for a two bedroom Radleigh coach house to £279,950 for a 4 bedroom detached Shenstone.
For more information on the Gateway at Melksham please telephone on 01225 434000 or call into our sales complex. We are open every day from 10.00am to 5.00pm

Part Exchange Weekend
at Milbury Reach and The Gateway
Got a house to sell but want to move quickly? Bloor Homes South West has come up with the ideal solution and would like to talk it through with you at two special weekends held this month.
Commenting on the special event weekends, Gina Wilson, regional sales manager said,
"Just because you've got an existing house to sell, doesn't mean that you've got to put off moving up to a fantastic new Bloor home. We fully appreciate that it can be difficult to sell your current home but we've set out to remedy that situation with our 105% Part Exchange plan which makes it easier than ever for you to make the move right now.
When you visit us on site during one of these special weekends and enquire about Part Exchange, we'll arrange to make you an offer on your property, which, for a limited period will represent 105% of the price that we consider we will be able to sell your house for in a six week period. We'll provide you with independent advice and even help you to choose a solicitor to ensure that completion of the purchase of your new home is achieved in an agreed timescale.
We'll also arrange a structural survey of your existing home. Once it's received we will discuss the report with you, and on the basis that it is satisfactory, you can proceed with your purchase - and leave the rest to us, giving you more time to concentrate on moving to your dream home. You won't have to worry about purchasers changing their mind and wasted solicitors fees, or agreeing completion dates with a long house chain - it's just you and Bloor Homes working together to help you move on time, with no stress. As an extra incentive to call in during our special weekend event, we'll make you an offer on your current property within 48 hours subject to a satisfactory homebuyers report."
To explain the procedure in more detail and to answer your questions, we'll have an Independent Financial Advisor, as well as our sales team on hand to answer all of your queries throughout the special weekend at each venue.
