Living in a strong community is high on buyer wishlists
Our recent survey showed a quarter of respondents agreed that finding a home within a strong community was more of a priority post-lockdown than ever before.
In the same survey, 23% also said that they would make more of an effort with their neighbours if and when they moved to a new house.
One new development in Burscough, The Grange at Yew Tree Park, has welcomed over 60 families already and has new homes available so buyers can become part of this already thriving community.
“Knowing your neighbours and forming strong relationships with them is something we’ve all probably experienced more of over the past year,” says Lancashire sales director Sian Pitt. “This is now shifting into a requirement that buyers look for in their new home and moving into a new but established community can help with that.
“For first time buyers, finding a home that ticks all the boxes within their budget can be a difficult task but The Grange has it all. It’s got the settled community, plenty of amenities on its doorstep and fantastic connections to the wider region. Plus, first time buyers could find the initial cost is lower than they expected as some homes are eligible for the new Help to Buy scheme.”
Changes to the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme mean it is available to first time buyers only and regional price caps have been introduced. In Lancashire the maximum house price is £224,400.
One home at The Grange that comes within this price bracket is the Ledbury. Available as either a two-bed home for £204,995, or a three-bed version from £219,995 this home is an ideal first-step onto the property ladder.
Downstairs there’s a kitchen and dining area with double doors out into the garden plus a separate lounge. There’s also a handy cloakroom. Upstairs, the main bedroom has its own en-suite while the other two bedrooms share a family bathroom.
The two-bedroom Ledbury is the same layout downstairs but upstairs both double bedrooms come with their own en-suite.
The West Lancashire development is within easy reach of Preston, Liverpool, Southport and Manchester by train and lies just south of the main A59 Liverpool to Preston Road, giving excellent commuter access.
Locally there’s a comprehensive choice of shopping and leisure facilities close by.
