Hassle Free Ownership for over 55s

30/03/2015 - General

Indeed, from 6th April anyone over 55 will be allowed to withdraw all or part of their pension to spend as they wish, with Financial firm Hargreaves Lansdown predicting that of the 400,000 people likely to cash in their pension, as many as 50,000 are planning to invest in property*. 

So, whether purchasers are looking to secure a second home to rent out or are planning to assist a child with purchasing their first property, investing in a high quality, low maintenance and energy efficient new build home at Silsoe Grange, from award winning housebuilder Bloor Homes, could provide the ideal solution. 

Vanessa Macnee, Sales and Marketing Director for Bloor South Midlands commented: “It is fantastic to see such positive predictions about the impact which the pension reforms will have on the housing market. At Bloor Homes we aspire to really understand the needs of all of our purchasers and the 55+ market is no different. 

“Regardless of the motivation behind their purchase, we appreciate the importance of securing a home which isn’t going to require a high level of investment or ongoing maintenance and is going to be economical to run. The homes at our Silsoe Grange development in Silsoe really do tick all of the boxes and I would encourage anyone considering investing in a second home to come and talk to our experienced sales team as soon as possible.”

All Bloor Homes are finished to the highest specifications and standards, and for added peace of mind come with a 10 year warranty from either the NHBC or LABC. What’s more, with a Bloor Home the use of the very best materials and installations can have a significant impact on energy bills, reducing energy usage by a remarkable 40%, which could equate to a massive £556 saving per year. 

For househunters in Silsoe, Bloor Homes’ development Silsoe Grange offers a selection of high specification new build homes, ideal for that second home purchase.  

Ideally located in the village of Silsoe, Bedfordshire, the development offers homeowners a quintessentially British lifestyle, characterised by historic local treasures including an old village church and Millennium green, whilst modern conveniences are just a short drive away. Silsoe Grange also benefits from easy access to Bedford, Luton, Ampthill and Shefford, via the A6 and the A507, making it perfectly placed for commuters.
