Moving Made Easy, With Linden Homes, In Gloucester
11 Apr 2012

The average time which a house spends on the market in Gloucester is currently a whopping 175 days*, but if you’d like to move sooner, rather than later, Linden Homes Western can help, as it is currently offering part exchange** at Raikes Chase,  its new development in the area.

Linden sales executive Lisa Huxstep, comments on the incentive: “Here at Raikes Chase we have a range of tailor-made incentives available: part exchange can benefit you, no matter what your situation, enabling you to buy and sell in one quick, easy, hassle-free move, at an agreed price. We use local estate agents to value your house and we’ll give you a part-exchange offer within seven days. As an added bonus, you’ll have no estate agents’ fees or marketing costs to pay – perfect. But, don’t take our word for it – come along to our part-exchange weekend on 5 and 6 May and see for yourself.

“However, if you’re a first-time buyer, looking for a new home, then purchasing with FirstBuy might prove to be the best option for you. You only have to pay 80 per cent of the purchase price, and require just a five-per-cent deposit.

“So, whatever your home-buying need, we can help you. Pay us a visit and see how we can get you moving.”

Raikes Chase has certainly proven the popular choice for new-home-buyers – with six properties sold since the launch, last month. When you couple the price with the excellent location, you can see why.

With a current selection of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes for sale, whether you’re a first-time buyer, couple, family or looking to downsize, there’s something for everyone. To make it easier for purchasers to see the quality on offer, and the specification of the homes, there is not one but two show homes available to view.

Located on the outskirts of Hempsted Village, Raikes Chase is part of the huge ongoing regeneration of the Gloucester Docks, which is bringing a renewed sense of vibrancy to the area. Situated in a popular suburb of Gloucester, on the Gloucester and Sharpness canal, the development has excellent road links to the M5, providing easy access to Bristol and the southwest, as well as north to Cheltenham and the Midlands. The city centre is also just a short walk away, along the canalside path. Gloucester has its own railway station, on the main line to Paddington, and a small airport at Staverton. International airports at Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff are within just an hour’s drive.

For shopping, Gloucester Quays is a large retail outlet which has transformed the local area; here, you’ll find a large eco-friendly Sainsbury’s and a new hotel. There is also a host of restaurants, cafés and leisure clubs locally.

To find out more about these brand new homes, in Gloucester, pay a visit to the show home at Raikes Chase, open Friday–Monday, 10am–5pm. Alternatively, contact the sales team: 01452 412791
