    Part ex valuations 9th Jan 18 at 3:29 PM
    Has anyone had any experience successfully negotiating a part exchange valuation?

    We’re looking to buy from Bellway and their offer for our house currently stands at £190k (+stamp duty). The exact same house as ours round the corner recently sold for £205k so their offer is a fair bit lower & too low for us to accept. We knew they’d come in low but curious to know if anyone has managed to achieve a higher price.

    £15k down on 205k with perks sounds like an incredibly good offer for a part-exchange purchase...

    How many houses have you sold before ?

    It sounds a good deal to me too.
    If you are finding huge gaps between your paragraphs and use Firefox, MSE know about the problem. However, they aren't necessarily doing anything about it yet....

    But never spend money you don't have to buy things you don't want to impress people you don't like.
