Savvy Customers Snap Up Around 75 Per Cent Of New Homes From Plan In York
18 Jul 2013

WHEN it comes to selling desirable new homes – award-winning Linden Homes has an enviable track record of recording high numbers of reservations from plan in York.

It’s 1877 development at Ouseacres has until now been the fastest selling in the North region’s history.

However, within a month of being launched, it seems the new Huntington Court development in the Huntington Road area of the city has stolen the crown when it comes to advanced sales.

In just a few short weeks, an impressive 18 out of 24 released properties have been reserved from plan – by savvy customers having the confidence to buy a new home before the first bricks have been laid, and reaping the benefits of a early purchase.

A total of 32 two, three and four-bedroom homes will make up the development, located close to the Monks Cross shopping complex.

Linden Homes’ sales director Steve Woomble said:  “Early interest in Huntington Court has not only matched, but exceeding the early sales success of our latest sought-after York development.

“This suggests once again that Linden Homes is fast becoming the house builder of choice in York – with customers putting their confidence in us to deliver high quality homes in desirable locations.

“Huntington Court is selling at such a pace that we would urge anyone interested to reserve now to avoid disappointment.”

And while it’s not everyone who has the courage or confidence to buy a brand new home from plan – many customers are able to recognise the benefits of cherry picking their preferred plot from the drawing board.

Advantages to buying from plan include:

  • Selecting a plot with a south-facing garden.
  • Choosing your preferred taste in kitchen tiles, kitchen cupboards and tiles.
  • Having a blank canvas from which to plan your new home.
  • Reaping all the benefits of lower utility bills, better energy efficiency and reduced maintenance bills that new homes can offer.

The new homes will boast designer kitchens and bathrooms, energy efficiency fittings and the latest hi-tech wiring for home entertainment and communication.

The development is perfectly positioned just a four-minute drive from the railway station, and less than 10 minutes from bustling centre of York.

The local area also offers excellent educational facilities, and its close proximity to York city centre means you are never far away from some fantastic shopping, wide selection of restaurants and of course a location steeped in history.
