What is Part Exchange and how does it work with Cala?

Want to avoid frustrating, time-consuming chains and expensive agent fees? Take a look at our up to 100% Part Exchange Service.

It's simple. We could be the cash buyer for your current home, so you can trade up and buy one of our brand new, energy-efficient ones. Better yet, you can stay in your home right up until your new one is ready to move into so no need for bridging loans or alternate accommodation.

Cala’s Part Exchange valuations are free and no-obligation, so it is easy to explore whether we can help you move.

Many Cala customers make use of our Part Exchange service. It gives you the certainty of a chain-free move and you won't have any estate agent fees. 

The main benefits of our Part Exchange Service are:

• You know that you have a cash buyer for your home and your move is not at risk of problems that come with the chain.

• Your legal completion dates will be the same, with no need for bridging loans or accommodation. You could even hang on to the keys of your current home for a day or two longer to ease the pressure on moving out.

• Cost savings. You will not need to pay agent fees, Home Report or survey costs.

• Time savings. No chain means less chance of delay. Once your new home is finished, you will be able to move in more quickly.
