Finding A Simple Way To Move To Rosewood Mill
27 Sep 2013

The final phase of beautiful four bedroom family homes at Linden Homes’ Rosewood Mill development in the village of West End has now been released. These homes are situated on the edge of the green at the heart of the development.

The beautiful new show homes are also now open and can give you an excellent idea of what life in one of the Rosewood Mill houses would be like.

If you are thinking about buying a new home at Rosewood Mill, but are put off by the thought of the hassle associated with moving house, have a look at the Linden Homes’ Part Exchange Scheme*.

This has proved an extremely useful tool for many purchasers who have an existing home to sell: Under the scheme, Linden Homes becomes your guaranteed buyer – and takes on the task of having your existing property valued and marketed.

With that side of the move dealt with, you can concentrate on buying your new home because you won’t need to arrange viewings of your old home, you don’t need to pay any estate agents fees and there are no brittle property chains to threaten your moving plans.

It is a scheme that has worked really well for many Linden Homes’ buyers. They have told us that knowing some of the stress and frustration of selling would be removed actually inspired them to go ahead with plans to buy a new home: These are some of the things they have said about the scheme:

“Our old home, with all of its faults and failures became someone else’s problem!”

“We’d been getting nowhere when we were trying to sell the old house ourselves. Once we found the home we wanted the Linden Homes Part Exchange Scheme took away the hassle of selling. It also freed up a few thousand pounds in saved estate agent fees. But most importantly it meant we could get on with the move.”

“Having already had a difficult time selling our old home, the Part Exchange Scheme appealed to us very much. We decided to go ahead and Linden Homes arranged for several valuations: We were pretty pleased with the offer Linden Homes made us for the old home. They became the guaranteed buyer so we knew the sale couldn’t fall through. We left all the dealings with the estate agents to them – and they paid the fees. It turned out to be a really straightforward move for us.”

It might also be worth considering this too: The homes at Rosewood Mill qualify for the Government’s Help to Buy Scheme* which came into force on April 1st.

This Government backed equity scheme enables buyers to purchase a new home with just 5% deposit and a 20% Government equity loan – a loan that can be repaid at any time within the first 25 years - and is interest free for five years.

When Hayley Clark and Henry Jones were buying a Linden Home, Hayley says they decided to use the Help to Buy scheme:

“We were both living at our parents’ homes and were planning to buy a place of our own eventually. When the Help to Buy scheme was launched we realised that this was our chance to buy somewhere. Linden Homes guided us through the process and recommended Homes in Hants, the Help to Buy agency for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. (

“We had moved into our new home within a month. We had thought that we couldn’t afford our own home yet it can often be difficult to find the deposit for a first home; but the Help to Buy scheme meant that it was possible for us. There aren’t lots of forms to fill in and it was genuinely hassle free, which is what you want when you are buying a home.”
