Beat The January Sales Rush And Bag Yourself And Brand New Home For 2014 (North)
01 Jan 2014

WITH the arrival of a New Year comes the anticipation of making exciting plans … and for many that includes moving home.

And with so much to choose from at Linden Homes, the award-winning developer is urging buyers to beat the rush and snap up a brand new home from plan.

Not only can customers choose their preferred plot from the drawing board, but also reserving at this early stage secures the price of the home.

Buying off plan continues to be a popular trend among Linden Homes customers, with the company celebrating its fastest-selling development to date last summer in York – where 75 per cent of the homes were sold from plan.

“January is an excellent time to buy off plan,” said Linden Homes sales director Steve Woomble. “The start of a new year sparks a renewed interest in people who have been thinking about moving, but have put things off until after Christmas. In addition, the benefits of buying a brand new home certainly outweigh those of buying a second hand property.

“And with many of the homes at a number of our new developments having a spring, summer and in some cases autumn 2014 completion date – why not beat the rush and buy in January?”

And by reserving from plan, customers will also have the chance to reap the further benefits of buying a new home over a second hand one. These include:

  • Selecting their best plot position
  • Personalising their home by choosing their preferred bathroom tiles and kitchen units
  • Offering more time to save towards furniture and carpets
  • Securing a new home at today’s price in a rising market
  • Taking advantage of the low interest rates on current mortgages.
  • Schemes available now for five per cent deposits, these may become limited.
  • Lower utility bills, better sound proofing and reduced maintenance bills that new homes can offer.
  • New materials used in the construction process also mean that new homes are more energy efficient that their older counterparts
  • A 10-year National House Building Council (NHBC) protection

A range of new developments offering the chance to buy off plan is being built across the region including;

  • Lindenwood phase 2 – Kingswood Parks, Hull
  • Silcoates Gate – Wrenthorpe near Wakefield
  • Willeby Heights – Thorpe Willoughby
  • Stonebridge Park – Willberfoss
  • Wilberforce Manor – Pocklington
