Move in time for Christmas – a range of new builds can host your festive season
Posted 30 September 2016 by Keith Osborne
If you really want to make it into a brand new home for Christmastime, now is exactly the right time to go on a serious search for it, with a range of excellent new builds ready for some lucky buyer to move into.
One of the great advantages of picking a new build as your next home is the purchase of a 'blank canvas', perfectly fitted and finished property that will be ready to use the moment you move in. No need to refurbish the kitchen before considering your festive meal, or to replace a tired bathroom before inviting the relatives around.
Here are just a few new build homes for sale around the UK that will be ready for you to move into for 25 December:
