Investors Tempted With Triple Enticement On Hawkswood New Homes
10 Mar 2016

Investors are being tempted with a triple enticement to buy a new home at Hawkswood, Bicester, and gain themselves tens of thousands of pounds.

As well as an offer by award-winning housebuilder Linden Homes to pay £5,000 towards their stamp duty, customers could save even more by getting in before April 1st when expensive changes in stamp duty on second properties come in.

The third advantage is impressive rental returns, which White Walls letting agent’s in Bicester assesses at between £1,600 and £1,625 per month on a four-bedroom house – a solid annual yield of up to 4.5 per cent.

Steve Garton, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes Thames Valley, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for investors: £5,000 paid in stamp duty; thousands more saved by buying before second home stamp duty increases; and healthy rental returns.

“Hawkswood is in a very popular town-and-country location with excellent transport links for commuters, superb facilities for families, and with sought-after homes offering high quality and characterful design. We’re urging people to act now or miss out forever.”

The extra stamp duty charges were announced in the budget last year and mean that people buying buy-to-let or second homes for over £40,000 will pay an extra three percentage points on each step of stamp duty – building up thousands in additional costs.

Purchasing before April 1st will avoid this extra expense. Among the homes that could be snapped up now is the four-bedroom Maple, including a garage, fitted kitchen and turfed garden.

With an upstairs featuring two en suite bedrooms and a family bathroom, the house offers spacious and flexible family accommodation. Downstairs a large kitchen/family/dining room is flooded with light from a bay window with doors opening out into the garden. The ground floor is completed by a formal living room at the front and a cloakroom off the elegant hall.

As with every property at Hawkswood, the Maple also comes with a fitted kitchen and the peace of mind of a 10-year NHBC warranty and a two-year Linden Homes customer care warranty.

It is one of a wide choice of high quality two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at Hawkswood, located between Oxfordshire’s rolling countryside and the famously upmarket Bicester Village retail park.

Hawkswood is part of Kingsmere, a new village community boasting primary and secondary schools, a village centre, recreational and sports facilities, a business park and hotel.
