Don't Hibernate This Autumn - It's The Perfect Time To Snap Up A New Home
03 Oct 2012

THERE’S no escaping the fact that the nights are gradually drawing in and autumn is here.

However, the advice from Linden Homes is ‘don’t be tempted to go into hibernation when it comes to house hunting’.

Now is a great time to reserve a brand new home at one of Linden Homes’ many developments around the region, and take advantage of some fantastic offers that could see you settled into a new home in time for Christmas.

A range of incentives is currently being offered by the housebuilder across Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

These include:

Part exchange: Linden Homes will obtain two independent valuations on your existing property fromlocal agents on your behalf.

Providing you and your existing property meet certain criteria, Linden Homes will then make you an offer for your existing property, based on the valuation reports by the local estate agents, leaving you free to reserve your new dream home.

NewBuy: A government scheme where buyers need just a five per cent deposit to secure an apartment or home up to 500,000 – with Linden Homes working in partnership with major High Street lenders to secure a 95 per cent fixed rate mortgage.

FirstBuy: An incentive that also requires a minimum fiver per cent deposit and allows eligible buyers to own 100 per cent of their new home but only pay as little as 80 per cent of the price/mortgage.

The remaining 20 per cent is met through the Government and Linden Homes by means of a loan – repayable on the resale of the property.

Linden Homes sales manager Warren O’Callaghan said: “With the children now settled into a new school year, the focus for many is on Christmas – and the possibility of moving to a brand new home.

“Autumn is the perfect time to start the process, and with so many attractive incentives – everyone from first time buyers, existing home owners and people looking to downsize can benefit.”
