Buying A New Home At Christmas Is Not As Stressful As You Might Think!
18 Nov 2019

Most people’s idea of festive fun doesn’t necessary include the whole process of buying and moving into a new home - on top of the ordinary stresses and strains of preparing for Christmas.

With moving house already well documented as one of life’s most stressful experiences, some home hunters may prefer to delay a move until the New Year.

But developer Linden Homes West Yorkshire says there is no need to feel ‘bah humbug’ about moving home in November and December – as there are a number of incentives, benefits and choices on style and location to keep home-hunters’ festive spirits up.

Sales manager Clare Thacker said: “Buying a new home at any time of year is extremely exciting but moving at Christmas time gives you the chance to really enjoy your new surroundings and show them off to family and friends – as well as take advantage of special incentives, including the opportunity to be mortgage free for six months*.”

And as with the 12 Days of Christmas – here are 12 good reasons a festive move receives a seasonal thumbs-up:

  1. A brand new home marks the start of a new chapter in your life – and a great milestone to celebrate, particularly at Christmas.
  2. You will have a shiny new kitchen in which to cook your Christmas dinner as well as a fantastic dining space to entertain your guest – and set out a fabulously festive table!
  3. Buyers can take advantage of the many money saving incentives available – including Help to Buy, giving you a bit more budget to spend on your Christmas shopping.
  4. A new home in a new location presents the chance to meet new people and neighbours.
  5. Energy efficient features mean that you will save money on utility bills, and reap the benefits throughout 2020.
  6. A brand new boiler guarantees you will stay cosy in your new home through the Christmas period and the winter.
  7. With new properties meaning less winter maintenance than their second-hand counterparts, you won’t need to think about seasonal repairs and have more time to enjoy the festivities.
  8. Having an ensuite shower room, extra bedroom or downstairs cloakroom allows for additional space for guests over the holiday.
  9. Moving to a new home means that you can clear the clutter before you settle in – leaving more room for Santa’s deliveries on the Big Day.
  10. Make a list of what you need for your new home and use this time to give Christmas present ideas to family and friends and pick up whatever else you need in the January sales.
  11. If you are moving with children, get them involved – and use an advent calendar as a countdown to ‘Moving Day’.
  12. Lastly, relax and enjoy thinking about starting the New Year in a fabulous new home.
