Buy off-plan for best value, says housebuilder

A leading housebuilder today urged would-be buyers to strike early to snap up the best bargains at its latest development in the heart of Lincolnshire.

Persimmon Yorkshire says its new Phoenix Place development at North Hykeham near Lincoln has been designed to meet the demands of both first-time buyers and people moving up the property ladder.

And it says customers prepared to buy off-plan – before a single brick has been laid – are likely to land the best deals at the newly-launched site.

Kevin Thubron, sales and marketing director, said the development would offer a mix of two, three and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes within easy reach of Lincoln’s historic centre.

“This is a high-quality development in an excellent location and we are expecting considerable interest,” he said. “As a result it is highly likely that those buyers who get in early will manage to reserve the best deals.

“We are already seeing a steady increase in buyers wanting to get ahead of the game and purchase their new home off-plan and can offer a number of benefits to reward early bird reservations.

“Buying this way is ideal because you can secure your preferred property and location within the development.  Reserving at this stage means you can truly personalise your home by choosing from a range of fixtures and fittings such as kitchen units, flooring, tiles or accessories.

“And it also means that you give yourself the maximum amount of time to get everything sorted, taking some of the stress out of moving home.”

Phoenix Place is situated just a short walk away from Hykeham Station, offering outstanding transport links to Lincoln and direct services to Nottingham, Leicester and the wider East Midlands.

The development is close to two local country parks, whilst Lincoln city centre has an international reputation as an historic cathedral city.
