Early bird buyers snap up new homes near Preston

Buyers are being urged to act now if they want to purchase their preferred property at The Chase in Walmer Bridge, near Preston.

Demand is such that customers have not only been keen to buy homes that are currently available, but have also been making ‘early bird’ reservations to secure properties in further phases of the Redrow development.

Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), explains: “Buyers have shown a keen interest in the properties at The Chase, where along with the six firm sales we have a number of people who are simply waiting for their dream homes to be put on the market so that they can commit to buy. By making an early bird reservation they will be given the first refusal on that property when it’s released for sale. It means they can take advantage of buying ‘off plan’ and secure the house of their choice in the position they want.

“With show homes soon to open we’re seeing an increase in enquires from potential purchasers as people can see work progressing and the development starting to take shape. We would encourage anyone thinking of moving here to contact us without delay.”

Current availability at The Chase includes three and four-bedroom properties with prices from £189,995.

NewBuy is available enabling customers to purchase a brand new home with a 5% deposit and 95% mortgage. It means buyers with savings of around £10,000 could find they’re able to secure one of the properties.

Help is also available in the shape of Redrow’s Mastermove scheme. It enlists the help of a tried and trusted local agent to sell the customer’s home, with Redrow monitoring the agent’s activity and even paying their fees at the end of the day.

“The incentives available mean that whether you’re a first time buyer, growing family in need of extra space or a downsizer looking for somewhere smaller we could help you buy a brand new home at The Chase,” Claire adds.

“All of the properties boast our high specification as standard, including well equipped kitchens and bathrooms that boast quality fixtures and fittings. And because everything’s brand new there’s no need to worry about DIY or decorating, you can simply choose which style of property best fits your lifestyle and then enjoy the fun of choosing the finish of the kitchen cabinets and the bathroom tiles. We’ll then do the hard work for you so that you can look forward to starting a new life in a beautiful brand new home that’s unique to you.”

The Chase is located off Liverpool Road in Walmer Bridge. It’s a popular residential area with a good range of local schools and facilities nearby including a supermarket and traditional country pub.

Nearby Longton offers a wider range of shops and the city of Preston and seaside town of Southport are within easy reach.
