Buying a brand new home can be exciting and a little daunting at the same time.

And while not everyone has the courage or confidence to buy off plan – there are huge benefits for those who do.

Savvy customers from Market Harborough are already snapping up brand new homes from the drawing board at Linden Homes Midlands’ new development in the town.

A handful of two, three and four-bedroom homes have been reserved from plan at the Ashton Rise development, located in the desirable area of Lubenham Hill, within walking distance of the town centre and train station.

The 119 homes planned for Ashton Rise will also include a number of two-bedroom bungalows, which start from £259,995.

And by beating the rush and reserving a brand new home from plan, savvy customers can reap numerous benefits including:

Selecting a plot with a sought-after south facing garden
Contemporary kitchens and bathrooms
Choosing preferred taste in bathroom wall tiles
Choosing preferred kitchen units and worktops
Having a blank canvas from which to plan a new home
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.

Linden Homes Midlands area sales manager Tracey Gibson said: “Buying off plan is a trend which seems to be continuing across the Midlands region with buyers who are keen to secure their preferred plot on a particular development.

“For the customer, this is great news – bringing with it numerous benefits. For developers like us, it shows a real confidence in the new homes market and a recognition that our carefully chosen locations and designs are continuing to win public approval.

“Our experience shows that customers are much more savvy about the house buying process, and coupled with knowledgeable and experienced sales staff and up to the minute brochures and plans – snapping up a new home from the drawing board is as popular as it has ever been, and even easier.

And there are other opportunities for homebuyers to curb the cost of moving through a number of incentives including the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme.

First time buyers as well as eligible existing homeowners can also benefit.
You only need a minimum five per cent deposit
The Government will lend you up 20 per cent of the value of your property through an equity loan – interest free for the first five years, and which can be repaid at any time, or on the sale of your home.
Buyers need only to secure up to a 75 per cent mortgage from a bank or building society.

Prices at Ashton Rise currently range from £264,995 to £485,995. For more information, visit
