Living in London, struggling for space and looking to upsize? Or trying to get your first 'foot on the property ladder' and finding London prices mean a decent home is beyond your financial reach?
Why not consider a newly built home outside the capital?
There is life outside London, you know!
Younger people and workers in essential occupations such as nursing and policing - as well as those in jobs ranging from window cleaning to taxi driving - can often find London house prices prohibitive when it comes to upsizing. This is particularly true in the case of first time buyers and young families.
If you are looking to upsize but cannot afford London prices, look no further than Larkfleet Homes developments in and around places such as Peterborough and Grantham.
The price of new build homes is lower in this part of the world than in London. Where you have a house to sell you, you may well be able to pocket the difference between the price you achieve on your London property and your new build home further north.
Depending on where you currently own a property in London, moving to a new build home in the East of England or East Midlands could save you tens of thousands of pounds. Just think what you could do with that cash!
And leaving London doesn't mean leaving your job in the city. It’s quicker and easier to travel into central London from Peterborough than it is from many of London’s outer suburbs. Both Peterborough and Grantham are on the East Coast main line with many daily services running into Kings Cross. Nearby Corby - where we are also building new homes - has frequent services to St Pancras.
More and more people are moving out of London to find more spacious housing. In the year to June over 90,000 people took the plunge and moved out of the capital according to figures published recently by Savills.
Be one of the savvy movers and upsize to a new build home in one of our developments.
