New Year, New Beginnings And A New Home In Winchester
08 Jan 2013

New Year is a time for new beginnings and new resolutions. It may also be the right time to think about buying a new home.

The Office for Budget Responsibility (an independent but Government funded economic forecaster) has recently predicted a surge in housing market activity which it says will begin in 2013. It estimates that by 2013/14 we could see a 20% rise in the number of people buying and selling homes compared to the previous year.

It appears that the somewhat sluggish market that has persisted over the last few years is about to get a new lease of life.

If the sense of new beginnings and new optimism should take hold of you in the New Year, it might be the perfect time to consider Winton Gate in Winchester. Linden Homes is creating a new development on an excellently located piece of land less than a mile from the heart of this lovely old city.

Winton Gate consists of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes that are half a mile from Winchester railway station and within the catchment area of several exceptional schools.

Mark Docherty, Linden Homes sales and marketing director says this small development will bring life back to a dilapidated brown field site:

“These homes are being built to the east of the Andover Road on what was a disused and overgrown swimming pool building. Once the new homes are finished, Linden Homes will have succeeded in turning this piece of wasteland into a very desirable Winchester address.”

And if the OBR prediction proves to be right and there is going to be a surge of house buying and selling in 2013, then it might be a good idea to get ahead of the crowd: To register your interest in Winton Gate with Linden Homes, call 0845 602 7771.

Once you’ve registered, you are eligible for priority notification as the new Winton Gate homes become available – you’ll also receive news and updates on the progress of the development. On top of this, everyone who registers will receive a voucher for £250 to spend on their new Linden home.
