Out With The Old And In With The New ?" Last Chance To Buy At Newmillerdam
26 Feb 2019

Developer Linden Homes West Yorkshire is offering a final chance to buy at its popular Kings Glade development in Newmillerdam.

Only a handful of exceptional five and six-bedroom homes remain for sale at the development, all of which are completed and ready to move into this Spring.

And for those who are faced with the dilemma of buying a brand new or second-hand home, there are huge benefits to purchasing a new build property in Wakefield.

Home hunters often have to weigh up the options of which offers the best value for money?

While older homes traditionally have larger rooms, re-decorating, installing a new bathroom or kitchen and laying new carpets are just some of the DIY jobs many of us have planned when we move into a ‘used’ home.

However, buying a new house can not only cut down the cost, but also put buyers in the driving seat when it comes to those finishing touches – as well as saving on energy and bills.

Linden Homes West Yorkshire sales director Gina Holmes said: “In today’s market place, with so many incentives available, the argument for buying new as opposed to old has never been greater. There are massive benefits to ease the financial burden and stresses related to moving home.

“The approach of spring gives a new outlook on things and is often a positive time for people looking to move, and where better to than our popular Kings Glade development in Newmillerdam, where our final homes are ready to move into now.”

At a glance guide of the benefits of buying new over old:

  • House builders have perfected the moving process to make the journey as stress-free as possible.
  • Older homes may have more character, but they also need more maintenance than new ones, like new guttering, replacement windows or extra roof insulation.
  • Energy efficiency is a major benefit. New homes are well insulated, and include double-glazing as standard, making them cheaper to run than older homes. The costs of heating a new home will be substantially lower than a comparable older one.
  • New homes offer a blank canvas. Buyers can choose kitchen units and bathroom wall tiles, subject to the build stages. A new garden means there is scope for unique landscaping to suit a customer’s individual taste.
  • New homes often have features many buyers may take for granted, including ensuite facilities and added security aspects including smoke detectors.
  • Location is a careful consideration.  A popular commuter friendly village, Newmillerdam offers the best of both worlds – boasting its own beautiful country park while being close to Wakefield and Leeds, and other major centres through the excellent road network.
  • There’s a chance to save money through incentives, including Part Exchange for those with an existing property to sell.

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 reserve 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.

The Kings Glade sales and marketing suite is currently open daily from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively, contact the sales team on 01924 250718.
