Double success for Redrow in Wakefield

With homes now available at two locations in Wakefield, Redrow is experiencing sales success and with the chance to buy with only a 5% deposit the developer is anticipating increased demand.

The award-winning developer’s regional headquarters is at Wakefield 41 Business Park, only a short journey away from Scholars’ Gate in Ruskin Avenue.

Hot on the heels of Scholars’ Gate, which launched in the summer, Redrow has now launched a second development in the city, Sandringham Gardens in Haigh Moor Road.

Properties at both ventures are available through the NewBuy initiative. It offers customers the chance to own a stylish new home with a 5% deposit and 95% mortgage.

Patsy Aicken, sales director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire), commented: “Between our two Wakefield developments we’ve had great success in recent weeks. At Sandringham Gardens five eager buyers snapped up homes before the show home opened; while over at Scholars’ Gate we’ve now sold 15 properties including five in October alone. We’re also working with a number of other potential purchasers who are considering moving to a brand new home and explaining the various incentives we have to help make moving quick and simple.

“For example at Scholars’ Gate one customer has already seized the chance to buy with only a 5% deposit with the help of NewBuy. Contrary to popular belief, the scheme isn’t just open to those starting out in life, but can be used by a host of buyers including second steppers who want to make their next move on the property ladder but perhaps have limited equity in their existing home.

“It’s these groups of purchasers that can really benefit from NewBuy as the incentive means they don’t need to put down vast sums to secure a brand new home. In fact they may only need a 5% deposit.”

Alternatively, homeowners could use part exchange to climb the property ladder or take advantage of Mastermove whereby Redrow enlists a tried and tested local agent to sell the customers’ home.

Between Scholars’ Gate and Sandringham Gardens, there’s a good choice of three and four-bedroom homes, with current prices from £174,950.

All new Redrow homes boast well equipped kitchens with integrated top brand name appliances; while bathrooms and en-suites enjoy quality fixtures and fittings with an exclusive tile range.

To experience all that a brand new Redrow home has to offer, visit Scholars’ Gate or Sandringham Gardens, where show homes are open daily from 10am to 5.30pm.
