As the first phase of homes is completed and their new owners prepare to move in, one family is celebrating being the very first to move into the Lindenwood development on the outskirts of Hull - and they did so thanks to Linden Homes' part exchange initiative.
Tony and Nicola Chambers, along with young sons Alfie and Charlie, decided that they would spare themselves the time, hassle and expense of selling their old property on the open market. Instead, they got an easy, chain-free purchase on the part exchange incentive from the housebuilder. After two independent valuations, Linden made them an offer, which they accepted, leaving them to agree a moving date and arrange to pack up their belongings. They were able to move straight from their old home in to the new one.
"We had been thinking about moving for a couple of months and had spent some time and money on improving our existing home before deciding to put it on the market," says district nurse Tony. "We have been watching the progress of the new Kingswood Parks area and visited a number of housebuilders, including Linden Homes."
The 79 homes at Lindenwood are just a small part of the huge project taking place at Kingswood, which will create some 5,000 new properties along with a leisure park, employment park and the community facilities of the Kingswood Parks Local Centre. There are currently a number of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and houses for sale at Lindenwood, where the sales and marketing suite is open from 10.30am to 5.00pm, Thursday to Monday.
Civil servant Nicola is delighted with her new home and the service she received from the Linden Homes team: "The part exchange scheme took the hassle out of selling our existing home, leaving us free to reserve our new one - which is not only family friendly in its impressive design, but is spacious and presents us with a blank canvas on which to put our own stamp. The fantastic customer service we have received from the sales executives and the site manager has made our move smooth and successful. We have been kept fully informed at every stage of the process and have nothing but praise for all the Linden Homes team."
