First-Time Buyers Given Helping Hand From Linden Homes
15 Oct 2014

Exclusive furniture package revealed at Northfields

This month, the Government has *announced that in the first 17 months (to 31 August 2014) of its rollout, 32,268 properties have been purchased with the support of the Help to Buy scheme. The majority of these sales have been to first-time buyers, representing 84% of total sales.

The Government says the figures show the scheme is working as it is supposed to – and is helping more people up onto the property ladder.

The Help to Buy scheme is available at Linden Homes’ popular Northfields development in Colchester – where it has already been successfully implemented many times over.

Northfields is an innovative development where modern design sits comfortably alongside green open spaces. The development enjoys excellent transport connections and is within walking distance of Colchester railway station.

To further assist new home owners in their bid to get on the property ladder, the multi-award winning house builder, Linden Homes is offering an exclusive ‘First Time Buyer’ package to make a move even more appealing.

First-time buyers who buy a new home at Northfields, with or without the Help to Buy scheme, will be set up to move straight in to their new home as the package will include:

  • Curtains/blinds
  • Coffee table
  • Media unit
  • Dining table and 3 chairs
  • Double bed and bedside tables
  • Wardrobe
  • Light fittings

Roseanne Bullen, the regional sales and marketing manager at Linden Homes Eastern, says that first-time buyers need all the help they can get:

“We want to make it as easy as possible for people to make their first home a Linden home. Not only will they be buying a property of award winning build quality but they’ll become part of the lovely community that has developed at Northfields. When they move in, they’ll have everything they need to make a house a home. We want them to feel at home as quickly as possible and this added extra will hopefully help them as they start their next chapter.”

For those interested in this first-time buyer package, there are a number of apartments available to buy.
