Move in time for Christmas – more nationwide new builds for the festive season

Posted 7 October 2016 by Keith Osborne

Our final look at new homes which - if you start the buying process in earnest - can be yours to move into in time for the Christmas holiday season...

Time is running out to get your home move under way in time for Christmas, but if you’re serious about acquiring a brand new property in time to welcome the family for roast turkey and all the trimmings, there are plenty of developments around the country with plots ready to move into.

Moving into a brand new home not only means cosy, energy-efficient surroundings, but also the benefits of the ‘blank canvas’, so you can make your personal mark on your property from the moment you walk in.

Remember, too, the benefits of schemes such as Help to Buy and Part Exchange, which mean a lower deposit and no buying chain respectively and can really assist you to make that Yuletide deadline.
