Cosy Up In A New Home This Autumn In East Yorkshire ?" And Instantly Winter Proof Your Property
11 Oct 2018

While we prepare to say an official farewell to summer, there’s still plenty to celebrate when the clocks go back – like snuggling up in a new home and saving money on bills!

If you are looking to hibernate in a brand new place of your own this autumn, Linden Homes East Yorkshire can help you get settled before the colder weather kicks in.

And a brand new home at this time of year will almost certainly result in savings when it comes to utility bills - thanks to economic boilers, insulation and double-glazing.

However, a new property - built to current energy saving standards and regulations could dramatically reduce the costs compared to an older counterpart.

Some eco-advantages and savings tips if you are moving before winter bites:

  • According to latest Home Builders Federation data, on average new homes built in England and Wales are 65 per cent more energy efficient than a Victorian house of the same style. Double-glazing, insulation and efficient boilers are among the elements that contribute to this energy efficiency, which ultimately create savings in the pocket.
  • The majority of new homes have thermostat controlled heating - turning down your room thermostat by just one degree can save around £75 a year, says the Energy Saving Trust.
  • Linden Homes will fully draught proof your home. Figures from the Energy Savings Trust show a fully draught proof home could save around £20 a year. Don’t forget to keep doors closed in rooms you are using to keep the heat in.
  • Boilers account for around 55 per cent of what is spent on energy bills in a year. Your new home will have a shiny new super energy efficient one.
  • Where possible, appliances fitted into Linden Homes properties are A rated or higher for energy performance.
  • All the toilets in Linden Homes properties feature a dual flush to help conserve water useage.
  • New homes will be built with the recommended insulation throughout the home – so no need to check and upgrade.

And for first time buyers, existing homeowners or those looking to downsize – snapping up a brand new home at a dream location has never been so easy.

To help curb the cost of moving to a new home across the region even further, purchasers can also benefit from a series of incentives, whatever their reason for moving:

Help to Buy – customers require a minimum five per cent deposit. The government will lend you up to 20 per cent of the value of your property through an equity loan, which can be repaid at any time, or on the sale of your home. Buyers will only need to secure up to a 75 per cent mortgage from a bank or building society. The maximum home purchase is £600,000.

Part exchange - Linden Homes will arrange for at least three independent valuations of your existing home and will make you an offer based on their suggestions. Once you agree the offer, and subject to satisfactory surveys, Linden Homes becomes your buyer, freeing you up to put in a reservation on your new home. After that, it's a case of setting a moving-in date, boxing up your things, and basking in the relief of a quick chain-free move to the home of your dreams. You can stay in your existing home until your new one is ready.

Linden Homes East Yorkshire regional sales manager Melanie Parker said: “We’ve got some fabulous homes across the region which are ready to move into now or before Christmas.

“The huge benefit is that customers could move in as little as four weeks – which means they can be settled in before the arrival of winter.
“Some of the homes which are ready to move into now also come with fitted carpets, curtains or even light fittings.

“In addition, others have the chance to buy their dream home by reserving it from plan, and reaping the many advantages that buying fresh from the drawing board present.”
