For new Berkshire resident Kath Cresswell, buying off-plan was a different way of securing her family’s next home. She had the choice between sticking with what she knew - a three storey terraced town house in Bramley - or moving further afield for something more spacious. With Kath and her family having already viewed several new developments, it was an initial visit to the Shinfield Meadows show home that set the wheels in motion.
Kath said: “We were drawn to Shinfield Meadows as it’s so open plan and there’s no busy through-road - it’s the perfect environment to raise a family.
“From viewing the show home we had a clear vision of the space and finish of our soon-to-be new home, and thanks to the transparency and helpfulness of the Linden Homes’ sales team, nothing was a massive surprise when it came to moving in.”
The Cresswell's also made the most of Linden Homes’ Part Exchange scheme, which Kath explained sped up the process significantly:
