See Of The Winter Blues And Step Into Bedfordshire’s Open House Weekend
23 Jan 2020

If the January blues has you longing for longer and warmer days – home hunters in Bedfordshire have the chance to brighten up their weekend with an Open House Event

Just in time for the Valentine’s season, there’s the chance to swoon over the show home and its sumptuous interiors, check out the different style of properties available and make a date with the sales executives to discover more about incentives and offers to help with a smooth move.

And if you are looking to move from the old to the new, Linden Homes Midlands (part of Vistry Group) has everything your heart desires at its St Marys at Kings Field development in Biddenham, Bedfordshire.

Where better to make a date with your future home than at a special Open House Weekend this weekend (Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 January).

With a stunning selection of three, four and coming soon, five-bedroom homes to choose from, St Marys has plenty to catch a buyer’s eye and get hearts racing.With a stunning selection of three, four and coming soon, five-bedroom homes to choose from, St Marys has plenty to catch a buyer’s eye and get hearts racing.

During the weekend from 10.30am until 5pm, the sales team will be on hand to show customers just what the development has to offer, welcoming visitors to the impressive Show Home and superb Ready To Move Into Homes available to view all weekend. Expert sales teams will guide visitors through the various cost-curbing incentives including Help to Buy* and Part Exchange†.

At the moment, Help to Buy is available to first time buyers and existing home owners. However, from April 2021, the Government scheme will be restricted to first time buyers only.

Here’s how it works: customers require a minimum five per cent deposit. The government will l end you up to 20 per cent of the value of your property through an equity loan, which can be repaid at any time, or on the sale of your home. Buyers will only need to secure up to a 75 per cent mortgage from a bank or building society. The maximum home purchase is £600,000.

Meanwhile, under part exchange, once you have chosen your new home, Linden Homes will arrange for 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 cash buyer, freeing you up to put in a reservation on your new home with no chain and no agents fees.

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.

Linden Homes Midlands sales and marketing director Vanessa MacNee said: “Quite often, people with an existing property are put off moving because they are concerned about finding a buyer for their house, or worried about it being on the market for so long that they miss out on a dream home.”

“With a new year well under way, most people are back into a routine and with Spring just around the corner, thoughts of a new home have been re-ignited. Now is the perfect time to consider part exchange – which could see you in a brand-new home within a matter of weeks and enjoying the benefits of a new community, great local amenities and schools.”

St Marys at Kings Field currently boasts a range of family-friendly homes and is gearing up for a special event to help ease the moving process for potential purchasers with an existing property to sell.

Anyone reserving one of the featured homes at the event weekend could receive £5,000 worth of John Lewis vouchers** to help furnish their new Linden home.

The location offers home hunters the best of both worlds; with excellent transport links to major centres like Bedford, Milton Keynes and Luton by road, and within easy reach of Cambridge and London by rail.

There are also ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted-rated schooling options close by as well as plenty of local amenities right on the doorstep, including shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, and coffee shops.
