Good News For Home-hunters Who Have Put Their Summer Holiday On Hold
01 Aug 2016

Finances and family commitments mean that not all of us are able to jet off on a summer holiday and think about moving house – especially if we want a new home.

However, for home hunters in the area, all is not lost. There is still a chance to snap up a dream home and enjoy summer at your own Wish You Where Here? development destination.

With a vast range of home designs and styles at Linden Homes East Yorkshire’s (formerly Linden Homes North) locations across the region, there is plenty to choose from to ensure you are settled into a fabulous new home before the summer draws to a close.

Some properties are ready to move into now – meaning customers can celebrate their move with some alfresco dining or entertaining. And with others due for completion in the coming weeks and months, there’s a chance to make your move before autumn puts in an appearance.

For first time buyers, existing homeowners or those looking to downsize, snapping up a brand new home at a dream location has never been so easy.

With seasonal incentives for those looking to step onto or move up the housing ladder, Linden Homes has a superb range of new homes to suit all tastes and budgets.

Sales manager Julie Hubbard said: “We’ve got some fabulous homes across the region which are ready to move into now or later this summer. The huge benefit is that customers could move into their new home in as little as four weeks.

“In addition, others have the chance to buy their dream home by reserving it from plan at one of many new developments, and reap the advantages that buying fresh from the drawing board present.”

Whether you are looking for something chic and stylish, practical and family friendly or smaller and less maintenance, the award-winning developer’s portfolio offers something for everyone – as well as a range of cost-curbing incentives including:

Help to Buy –customers require 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 a 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 – works in a similar way to Part Exchange. Linden will arrange for independent valuations of your current property, based on finding a buyer within a specified selling period and suggest a realistic selling price. An estate agent is instructed on your behalf to sell your existing home within a pre-agreed timescale. Once you have found your buyer, you can reserve your new home and Linden will pay your estate agent fees.
