Case study: Redrow scheme smooths the move for South Cerney family

Posted 10 October 2013

Redrow's Mastermove scheme is helping Gloucestershire homebuyers enjoy a stress-free house move when they buy a brand new property at Cerney On The Water, an exclusive lakeside development set in the pretty village of South Cerney.

With Mastermove, Redrow takes all of the hassle out of selling an existing home by liaising directly with local estate agents on the buyers' behalf - and looking after all of the paperwork associated with buying a new home.

Buyers go through three straightforward steps: they find a new Redrow home and register onto the Mastermove scheme; Redrow sells their old home; and homebuyers then move into their new Redrow home.

Redrow's area sales manager for the South West, Libby Bolton, says: "Along with our chosen estate agents, we offer a wealth of experience, expertise and enthusiasm acting on your behalf, all essential if you want to sell as efficiently as possible."

Situated on the edge of the Cotswold Water Park, homes at Cerney On The Water are proving popular, and one family - Mrs Bennett, her husband and their two children - recently used Mastermove to move into a new four-bedroom home there. After previously marketing their house on and off for three years, they were delighted to achieve a quick sale within just one week of signing up to Mastermove.

"We wanted a new, larger home to fit the needs of our growing family," explains Mrs Bennett. "When we heard about Redrow's new local development we jumped at the opportunity - its stunning lakeside position was such a unique proposition, we knew we had to go for it. Initially I was wary about using the scheme as I was concerned our existing house might be undervalued to achieve a quick sale, but I needn't have worried.

"Once we had registered with Mastermove and paid a small refundable deposit which we got back on completion, Redrow got three evaluations from local agents and from this we were able to agree a price for the sale of our existing home. It was very fair and we were really pleased with it. Redrow then chose a great local estate agent for us, from an approved list, and closely monitored the sale of our property at no cost to us.

"Everyone we dealt with was very professional; we would highly recommend Mastermove to anyone who wants the stress taken away from then when moving into a new Redrow home."
