Leading UK volume housebuilder, Weston Homes, reports impressive sales figures at four of its developments: Springfield Park in Maidstone, Edinburgh Way in Harlow, Abbey Quay in Barking and Watford Cross in Watford. Despite the economic challenges faced by many households, Weston Homes has witnessed a high level of demand for great value homes in prime locations with excellent transport links and good outdoor space, resulting in sustained high sales rates across many of their developments.
One primary reason for the increasing demand for affordable homes in prime locations is the recognition amongst buyers that the properties offer long-term advantages. While the current cost of living may be high, individuals understand that investing in a well-located home provides a strategic move for the future.
These properties have the potential to increase in value over time, making them an attractive investment for homeowners. By securing a home in a desirable area, buyers not only fulfil their immediate housing needs but also position themselves to benefit from potential price appreciation.
Furthermore, investors are turning their attention towards new build homes as a means to mitigate the mounting repair, structural and retrofitting costs associated with older properties.
As repair and maintenance expenses continue to escalate, investors recognise that purchasing a new build home which comes with a ten-year warranty, significantly reduces the likelihood of encountering major repair costs in the near future.
Weston Homes’ new build properties are constructed with modern materials and technologies, ensuring higher structural integrity and less maintenance. By choosing to invest in a new build property at a Weston Homes development, investors can safeguard themselves against excessive repair costs and focus on maximising their returns on investment.
