Cherry-picking house hunters are reserving their plots on a Milton Keynes development before the builders have softened up the mortar.
The Gallery in Westcroft will eventually consist of 57 three and four-bedroom new build family homes with the first due for completion this spring / summer.
Developer Linden Homes has released 10 new homes fresh from the drawing board and already seen six reserved.
There have even been early bird reservations of a further three yet-to-be-released plots.
The early birds have been able to select south facing garden and reserve them at pre-show home prices. Prices currently range from £279,950 to £349,950
