From first foot to feet up in just three weeks

June 2016

Resident Jennifer Ghey fell in love with her dream home, then moved in three weeks later thanks to the Story Homes HOME scheme.

Jenny and Poppy the dog, who lived in Morton, Carlisle wanted to downsize and move to a rural community with nicer walks from the door. Having seen that Story Homes had some apartments ready to move into on The Grange in Dalston, Jenny thought she’d go and take a look.

Jenny said “From the moment I walked into the apartment, I knew it was the one. It’s perfect for what we need, and as it’s on the first floor it means I can leave the windows open and I don’t need to worry about closing the curtains! My friends have asked if I can hear my neighbours through the walls, but I’ve not heard a peep.

“The whole thing happened unbelievably fast, I’ve never packed so quickly, but I couldn’t fault it. I’m absolutely delighted with my new home and I’ll not be moving again. It’s a lovely community and I love Dalston with all the dog walks on my doorstep.”

Sales Manager Hayley Blair said “Three weeks really is quick, but this is the reality of moving into a new home. You’re not waiting for someone else to move out! We have the support in place to help you buy and sell a home, without it being a stressful experience.”

The  HOME scheme is the perfect option for customers who have a house to sell but who don’t meet our criteria for part-exchange, or who would like to take advantage of the Help to Buy scheme. The HOME scheme allows customers to reserve their plot, while Story Homes arrange for two Estate Agents to value your home, put it on the market and help to secure the best possible price.  Story Homes also pay your Estate Agency fees, and removal fees.
