Buying off plan reaps rewards

Buying a new home before a single brick has been laid may sound unusual, but local house builder Persimmon Homes is encouraging buyers in Dumfries to do exactly that.

In fact, the company has already seen a great deal of interest in the properties on the latest phase of the Burns Green  development off Tipperwuppy Drive, and is now urging buyers to visit the development sooner rather than later to ensure they don’t miss out on the selection of keenly priced new homes.

Persimmon Homes West Scotland sales director, Ingrid Gahagan, is advising residents that it can be the best way to secure a dream home in a fantastic location, and says there are many benefits on offer for customers who act quickly and reserve early.

She says: “We are delighted to see a steady increase in house buyers wanting to get ahead of the game and purchase their new home off-plan and 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 from the Persimmon Homes Finishing Touches Collection.”

Burns Green is a stunning collection of spacious three, four and five bedroom homes, epitomising the unmistakable quality and style that is synonymous with Persimmon Homes.

The development is located in a popular residential suburb of Dumfries offering excellent road and rail links with the West Coast Rail Line and M74 just a short drive away taking you to Glasgow and Edinburgh in just over an hour.

Close to 2 golf courses, a multitude of sports centres and gyms, Ice Bowl and swimming pool. There are parks and forests to explore, rolling hills for walking and cycling and the rugged coastline with its sandy beaches is just a short drive away.

Ideal for young professionals, couples and families alike there are a range of incentives in place to help home buyers turn their dream of owning a new home into a reality.

Ingrid adds: “By purchasing a new build home with Persimmon, buyers may be eligible for the recently launched purchasing scheme, Help to Buy (Scotland).

“Help to Buy allows buyers to secure a brand new home with as little as a five per cent deposit a mortgage of just 75% and the remaining 20% in the form of an interest free Government loan repayable in the same time period as the mortgage.”

“Alternatively those who need to sell their current home will appreciate the ease of the Persimmon Home Change or Part Exchange schemes. With the Home Change scheme Persimmon will help purchasers find a buyer for their current home, or Part Exchange allows purchasers to move quickly and easily, without the worry and headache of finding a buyer.”
