Savvy New Homes Customers Already Thinking Ahead To Autumn In East Yorkshire
27 Mar 2015

Spring is certainly in the air for homebuyers in East Yorkshire, who are snapping up brand new properties from plan – six months before their completion.

A number of reservations have been made at Linden Homes North’s The Balk development in Pocklington, attracting buyers to pick their preferred plot fresh from the drawing board.

Interest in the recently launched development has grown over the past few weeks, with customers keen to take advantage of the many benefits buying off plan can offer.

In some cases, purchasers have reserved a dream home, but won’t be able to move in until its completion in September/ October.

A range of three bedroom town houses are currently available to reserve, with other three bedroom styles to follow at the Balk – which comes hot on the heels of Linden Homes’ other Pocklington development, Wilberforce Manor.

Once complete, the The Balk will boast two, three and four-bedroom homes, the first homes are due for completion in May / June.

The selection will also show case a number of new designs, with the development appealing to first time buyers, young professionals and families.

And by selecting their preferred plot from plan, customers can reap the many benefits of reserving fresh from the drawing board – including:

  • Personalising their home by choosing bathroom tiles and kitchen units.
  • Offering more time to save towards furniture and carpets.
  • Securing a new home at today’s price in a rising market.
  • Taking advantage of the low interest rates on current mortgages.
  • Schemes available for five per cent deposits.
  • Lower utility bills and reduced maintenance bills that new homes can offer.
  • New materials used in the construction process also mean that new homes are more energy efficient than their older counterparts.
  • A 10-year National House Building Council (NHBC) protection.

Steeped in history, the market town of ‘Pock’ is perfectly positioned at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

It’s location means that Pocklington is considered a commuter town for York (which is just 13 miles away) and less than an hour from Hull and Leeds.

A sales centre has yet to open at The Balk, but the homes are being sold from Linden Homes’ nearby Wilberforce Manor development on West Green. The sales and marketing suite is open daily from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively, contact the sales team on 0844 488 1859.
