The Exeter Market Is Booming - Nine Homes Sold In The Last Three Weeks At City Glade
25 Mar 2014

The property market in Exeter is booming; Linden Homes has sold nine homes at its City Glade development in the last three weeks.

Situated off Topsham Road in Exeter, City Glade is a stunning collection of three and four bedroom homes in a beautiful leafy setting by the River Exe, with easy access into central Exeter.

Brian Deacon, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes said: “Exeter is well and truly thriving and it’s obvious why so many people are keen to live here. Not only is Exeter a stunning cathedral city steeped in history with a strong arts scene, but it’s a hub for businesses and boasts a top university, the Met Office and an airport. Big brands like John Lewis, Waitrose and Ikea are flocking to the city, plus Exeter is well connected, providing quick links to Cornwall, Bristol and London Paddington, which is just two hours away by train.

“City Glade is beautifully situated, near to a river, but just a short walk into the city centre. When moving house you always hear that phrase ‘location, location, location’ but it really is true - location has to be the biggest factor to consider when buying a home.”

The company is currently offering two ways to help people move – Part Exchange and Help to Buy. Part Exchange enables homeowners to buy a new home and sell their existing home in one, quick, hassle-free move; there’s no chain and the company will pay the estate agents fees.

Brian added: “We’ll buy your home and will arrange for a valuation and then provide a part exchange offer within seven days. Within 28 days from reservation you could be in a new home at City Glade.

Help to Buy is a Government backed scheme available to existing homeowners and first time buyers. It enables you to purchase a new home for up to £600,000, with just 5% deposit and a 20% Government equity loan – a loan that is interest free for the first five years and can be repaid at any time within the first 25 years. A mortgage of just 75% is then required, which makes mortgage payments a lot more affordable.

Linden Homes is creating new homes at City Glade and also Milbury Reach in Exminster. Both developments have been incredibly popular since they launched, enjoying high levels of visitors and reservations.
