Freshney Green - Attractive, Clean And Eco Friendly - The Diagnosis From Dr Tim!
20 May 2013

LINDEN Homes’ popular Freshney Green development in the heart of Grimsby now has a doctor in the house – first time buyer, consultant Dr Tim Peacock!

The eco-friendly vibe of the development and the opportunity to move out of rented accommodation and onto the housing ladder were on Tim’s checklist when buying at Freshney Green.

Tim, who is based at the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby, says the location is also convenient for work, local amenities and family.

He said: “I was visiting the dentist across the road from the development and was attracted by the eco friendly vibe – Linden Homes has really transformed this area into an attractive place to live.

“I would definitely recommend Linden Homes to a friend, both the sales and customers services teams have been very helpful and dealt with any issues quickly.”

Tim (42) moved from rented accommodation in Caistor some 10 miles away to set up home at Freshney Green through one of the company’s first time buyer incentives – which allow customers to pay a deposit on the home and repay the remainder over a period of time.

The latest incentive is the government’s Help to Buy scheme – available on new build properties for both first time buyers and those with an existing property to sell.

Here’s how it works:

  • Help to buy is available on new build homes only.
  • Purchasers need a minimum five per cent deposit.
  • All homebuyers could be eligible, not just first-time buyers.
  • 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.

A number of two and three bedroom homes are currently available at Freshney Green – some of which are ready to move into now.

Others are due for completion between now and January 2014. For details of what is available, call the sales team on 01472 358784 or call into the sales and marketing suite which is open daily from 10.30am until 5pm.
