Bag A Bungalow - Great For Downsizers Or First Time Buyers At The Balk
10 Apr 2017

Whether you are looking to step onto the housing ladder for the first time or seeking something a little smaller, Pocklington is your go-to new homes destination.

Following the success of its first phase, Linden Homes East Yorkshire’s popular development The Balk has released more new homes for sale.

As well as a range of four and five bedroom family homes, there is a wonderful selection of two and three-bedroom homes – including a number of bungalows – ideal for first time buyers or downsizers.

And, there are even more ways to curb the cost of moving even further, through a number of Linden Homes incentives.

These include the Government backed Help to Buy scheme, where buyers need a minimum five per cent deposit and the government will lend them up to 20 per cent of the value of the property through an equity loan. This scheme is for new build homes only.

Part Exchange - Linden Homes will take away the hassle from customers with an existing property to sell – arranging independent valuations of their home and making them an offer based on the figure, subject to criteria, leaving them free to reserve a brand new home of their choice.

Downsizing to or choosing a smaller brand new home has many advantages, including:

  • Less financial burdens (including utility bills)
  • Not so much housework
  • Far fewer repairs and maintenance to do in the home
  • The property feels more manageable and therefore more secure
  • Feeling content knowing there’s no need for a future move if you are downsizing
  • A great cleansing exercise – a chance to clear out clutter if you are moving from somewhere larger
  • A chance to invest in some new furniture!
  • A blank canvas
  • No need to spend so many hours gardening – but still having an outdoor space to enjoy.

The Balk is perfectly positioned, close to LHEY neighbouring development Wilberforce Manor, and enjoys many local amenities while being close to major centres like York and Hull.

More details of availability and prices are available from The Balk. The sales and marketing suite and show home are open daily from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively contact the sales team on 01759 401 520.

The development will be open during the Easter weekend.
