Part Exchange Family Looking Forward To Celebrating Christmas In A New Home
24 Nov 2016

Looking forward to celebrating Christmas in their brand new home – with extra space for all things festive – is the Eckles family from West Yorkshire!

Having outgrown their previous house, Steve, Helena and their two sons Ben and Tom are now settling into their fantastic five-bedroom Buckingham house type at the popular Kings Glade development in Newmillerdam.

Having viewed the plans for their preferred property online, the family were among the first to reserve their new home during the early days of the development.

Steve explained: “As a family with two young boys, we felt that we were outgrowing our existing house. We saw the 'new development coming soon' sign at Newmillerdam and were eager to find out more.

“We know the area well as we often go for family bike rides and walks on the path that the development backs onto, as our previous house was only about a mile away from Kings Glade.”

The family was able to move relatively quickly, ensuring that - despite the odd box still to unpack – they will be well and truly settled in for Christmas.

And helping to ensure the move was smooth and hassle free as possible, the couple chose to sell their existing property through the Linden Homes West Yorkshire part exchange scheme.

Helena added: “The part exchange option worked out very well for us, especially the one week ‘licence to occupy' which really made the move much easier, stress free and gave us time to sort out things like carpets, wardrobes and the fireplace before the actual moving day.

“We are settling in well and are very happy in our new home, despite the many boxes still left to unpack but are very much looking forward to Christmas and brand new year in a brand new home.”

And using Part Exchange couldn’t be easier. 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 put 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.

Interest in Kings Glade has been gathering pace, with a number of homes already sold off plan and others ready to move into now.

With two recently opened show homes, the five and six-bedroom home luxury development certainly has the X-Factor!

The sales and marketing suite, and show homes, are open from Thursday to Monday. Alternatively, contact the sales team on 01924588440.

Newmillerdam is known for its beautiful country park where you can cycle, fish or just take a walk and enjoy the wildlife, Kings Glade is exceptionally well located for both motorway links and the cathedral city of Wakefield.
