LINLEY & Simpson's Land and New Homes teams has recorded 100 per cent sales successes at four separate Yorkshire developments.

And of the sites located in Bingley, Great Ouseburn, Scotton and Hutton Conyers, three were sold entirely 'off plan'.

Launched six years ago with just a single member of staff and six properties, the department - based in Linley & Simpson’s flagship Harrogate office - now employs a growing team of six, and has seen its new home sales portfolio increase to over 500, with more than three times that number in the pipeline.

It was crowned Best Land and New Homes team in the UK in the most recent residential property industry’s ‘Oscars’, drawing judges' praise for the raft of initiatives it has designed to support Yorkshire housebuilders in launching their developments to market.

Branton Green, in Great Ouseburn near York, all four detached properties sold ‘off plan’. Church Street, Bingley, two, three-bedroom detached properties were both sold within six days of going for sale at the full asking price (£189,950). One purchaser enquired on Friday, viewed on Saturday and bought on Monday.

Conyers Fold, Hutton Conyers, near Ripon, all five detached properties sold ‘off plan’. Parkside Gardens, Scotton, near Knaresborough, all five, three-bedroom detached and semi-detached properties sold ‘off plan’.

David Waddington, Director of Land and New Homes at Linley & Simpson, said: "We are delighted with the 100 per cent sales success at these three very different developments.

"The Help to Buy scheme and the stamp duty holiday has provided the new-build property market a real lift and given confidence to both developers and buyers alike.

"Branton Green, Parkside Gardens and Conyers Fold also prove our thoughts that 'off plan' sales are booming in village locations.

"These three developments also benefitted from Linley & Simpson’s network of local estate agents, which is why a rising number of developers around the region are using us to market their new developments."
