Peter Ward Homes to hold huge open day at Habrough Fields site

We will be holding one of the biggest open days in our 40 year history at theh Habrough Fields site in Immingham on Saturday 19 March from 11am.

National statistics show that new build homes continue to have a record completion rate and sales at Habrough Fields were up 67% in 2015, compared to 2014.

First time buyers, young families, growing families or those looking to downsize will all be welcome to take advantage of the free independent financial advice on offer at this latest open day.

The event sees more incentives on offer than at any previous event, with visitors on the day getting a voucher to have legal fees and Stamp Duty costs covered by Peter Ward Homes on any plot purchased by the end of June 2016.

On selected plots, buyers who reserve a plot before Monday 2nd May will also get to choose a combination of free home goods from a wide range including a Samsung fridge freezer, 4K HD TV, Playstation package or garden furniture and barbecue package worth up to £2,250.

Speaking ahead of the event sales director Rosemary Key said: “As we’re moving towards the summer we’re seeing the number of enquiries pick up dramatically.

These open days are a really great opportunity for people, regardless of what stage of the buying process they’re at, to gain valuable information, benefit from the give-aways on offer and view our show home, plus ten other properties which will be open for viewing on the day. We are certain there will be something to interest everyone

All of our staff will be on hand to offer advice and an independent financial advisor will also be in attendance offering free advice.

We offer Help to Buy on our houses too so, when you take into account that we’ll be covering the cost of legal fees and Stamp Duty as well, you can see that we have all kinds of help available to allow people to secure their dream home for less.”

Top 10 spring-cleaning tips

The nights are getting lighter, the air is getting warmer and the trees are getting greener. All of which can only mean one thing; spring has sprung!

And with it comes the annual spring clean. At Peter Ward Homes we know the value of a clean and tidy house. So here are the top 10 tips from our team:

  1. Organise your wardrobes

Creating space in your wardrobe is a must. You’ll discover a host of clothes you’d forgotten about and no longer wear. Donate them to charity or put them in to storage to create extra space for your summer wardrobe (fingers crossed for some warm weather!)

  1. Cleaning up stubborn stains on paint

If you’re struggling to shift tough stains on paintwork around your house try putting a couple of drops of washing up liquid directly on to the stain and cleaning with a wet sponge.

  1. Change the mood of your rooms

Changing the fabrics in a room can change the mood dramatically. It’s also a cheaper alternative to wholesale changes. Change curtains, cushions, table linens, towels and other items for instant impact.

  1. Get tiles gleaming

Bathroom and kitchen tiles can start to lose their shine. Reinvigorate them with a good scrub – mix half a cup of baking soda to two gallons of water.

  1. Rearrange your bookshelf

Stack some books horizontally and some vertically. Order them alphabetically and segment them by genre. This will make them easier to find and break the monotony of seeing them in rows.

  1. Clean your front door mat

Shake it, wash it, beat it with a broom. This will help your house appear more welcoming and also stop dirt at the door.

  1. Don’t forget the ceiling

Clean light fixtures, fans and air conditioning units from dust and grime. It’s easy to forget the ceiling but a good top-to-toe scrub will give your house an excellent shine.

  1. Dissolving furniture dents

If you’ve moved heavy furniture recently and it’s left a mark in the carpet the solution is easy. Put ice on the effected area, wait for it to melt and then run the vacuum over it.

  1. Clean the slots in your knife block

Often over looked, the knife block is full of crumbs and food morsels. Blast it with a hair dryer to blow everything out and suck it all up with a vacuum.

  1. Clean the dishwasher

Another one you might forget to clean. Every so often the dishwasher needs a de-gunk too. Fill a large measuring jug with two cups of vinegar, put it on the top rack and run a normal cycle. Job done!
