Developer Makes A Move On Thorpe Willoughby With New Sales Presence
16 Jan 2014

LINDEN Homes is now inviting potential homebuyers to its new development in North Yorkshire, following the opening of an on-site sales office.

Visitors to Thorpe Willoughby can now see for themselves just what the fantastic Willeby Heights development has to offer, by viewing plans, talking face to face with the sales team and the chance to look around site.

Although a show home won’t open until the Spring, there has been huge early interest in the development – which offers plenty to choose from when it comes to design, lifestyle and choice.

The first homes have already been sold from plan, being snapped up by home hunters seeking a tranquil yet thriving location for a family home or a place to relax and enjoy life.

Located close to the town of Selby, Willeby Heights boasts a wonderful selection of 149 carefully designed three and four-bedroom homes providing plenty of housing choice. The first residents are due to move to their new home at the development in April.

For first time buyers, existing homeowners or those looking to downsize – snapping up a brand new home at this fantastic location has never been so easy, thanks to incentives including:

Help to Buy - available on new build homes, with customers requiring 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 your 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.

Assisted Move - This works in a similar way to Part Exchange, including the benefits of Linden Homes dealing with the estate agents and pay their fees, getting the best price for your existing property while allowing you to secure your new home.

And by reserving from plan – and securing a new home at today’s price in a rising market - customers will also have the chance to cherry-pick their preferred plot and reap the further benefits of:

  • Selecting a plot with a sought-after south facing garden
  • Choosing their preferred taste in bathroom wall tiles
  • Choosing their preferred kitchen units and worktops
  • Having a blank canvas from which to plan their new home
  • Lower utility bills and reduced maintenance bills that new homes can offer
  • A 10-year National House Building Council (NHBC) protection

The sales centre will be open from Thursday to Monday from 10.30am until 5pm.
