Househunters In Basingstoke Snap Up New Linden Homes
15 May 2017

Following an impressive 2017 to date, Linden Homes Thames Valley is proud to have launched the second phase of its popular homes in Basingstoke. The Longacre development, situated just three miles from the heart of lively Basingstoke, has proven immensely popular with first time buyers and families alike, with sales in 2017 showing no signs of slowing.

The two, three, four and five bedroom homes at Longacre have been increasingly sought-after in 2017, with a considerable 33 homes reserved between January and the end of April. Sales peaked in March and April, with eight sales taken in March and 11 in April.

The homes at Longacre have the dual advantage of being close to open countryside, perfect for long winter walks, as well as the town centre of Basingstoke – giving home owners the best of both worlds. Basingstoke boasts an array of amenities including a recently rejuvenated shopping centre, good and outstanding local schools and a leisure centre that includes a swimming pool, bowling alleys and even an indoor skydiving centre.

54% of those buying a new home on the development have been able to do so whilst utilising the government backed ‘Help to Buy’ scheme. Statistics from Linden Homes’ 2016 Help to Buy Barometer revealed that an increasing amount of second steppers and downsizers are also taking advantage of the Help to Buy equity loan scheme, alongside the ever-present numbers of first time buyers. Across the country, in 2016 Linden Homes saw an increase of over 10% on the number of new homes being purchased by existing homeowners, compared to the national average.

With phase two of the development now successfully launched, Linden Homes Thames Valley is encouraging all those interested in finding their new home in Basingstoke to get in touch sooner rather than later. Prospective househunters can call 01256 442818 to make an appointment, in which time they can receive a tour of the stunning show home, The Cresswell, whilst hearing from the expert Linden Homes team on any questions they may have.

Suzanne Irons, Sales and Marketing Director at Linden Homes Thames Valley said: “We have been thrilled to see our homes at Longacre being snapped up by first time buyers, families and commuters alike, and are very excited to have launched the second phase of homes here on site. Basingstoke offers a wealth of opportunity, fantastic amenities and great travel connections in to the capital in less than an hour, meaning there really is something for everyone.

“With phase two now launched, we are taking more and more enquiries daily and would encourage all interested househunters to get in touch and book an appointment today to ensure they don’t miss out on the chance to find their dream home here in Basingstoke!”

The homes at Longacre can also be bought via Linden Homes’ Assisted Move or Part Exchange schemes.

Assisted Move is a Linden Homes initiative which offers buyers practical assistance when moving into their new home. As part of the initiative, Linden Homes promises to:
• Deal with the estate agents and pay all their fees, including arranging independent valuations
• Helps buyers get the best price for their old home
• Help appoint a solicitor and mortgage broker if required

For an even more hassle free move, buyers can also take advantage of Linden Homes Part Exchange scheme:
• Buyers choose their new home (current home must not be more than 70% of the value of the chosen home)
• Linden Homes instructs estate agents, agrees a value for the existing home and makes an offer
• If the buyer accepts, Linden Homes will market the current house, leaving the buyer free to move in when it’s ready

To find out more about the new homes at Longacre, please call 01256 442818.
