With seven sales in just 10 days, new homes in Bilston are in high demand.
The good news for those hoping to make 2016 the year they step onto the property ladder is that they haven’t missed out – and they may already have enough saved for a deposit on a brand new apartment at Chestnut Walk.
The final phase of the popular Redrow development is now on sale and thanks to Help to Buy properties can be secured with only a 5% deposit. For example, the equity loan scheme reduces the initial price of a one-bedroom maisonette style apartment from £79,995 to £63,996, with the lower price requiring a deposit of around £4,000.
Plus for a limited period only, Redrow will pay the legal fees and include flooring and a washer/dryer in selected properties.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), said: “Chestnut Walk is now a well established neighbourhood that’s particularly popular with first time buyers making that crucial initial step onto the property ladder. While traditionally at this time of year the housing market slows down, we’ve had a surge in enquiries this month, which has in turn boosted sales. In one period of just 10 days we sold seven homes to eager buyers. Based on the recent sales success we’d urge aspiring homeowners to reassess their finances and ask themselves if they can afford not to buy.”
The maisonette style apartments at Chestnut Walk look like traditional two-storey homes from the outside, but there are two doors – one for the ground floor apartment and one for the first floor.
Inside they boast a high specification as standard, with well equipped kitchens and sleek bathrooms. Designed and built with pride, they’re easy to manage and efficient to run.
Those who act now could stave off the January blues with the knowledge that they’ll be able to move into their own home in February.
Located within a 30-minute commute to Birmingham via train, the new homes at Chestnut Walk are close to the Wolverhampton/Birmingham Canal and within easy reach of Bilston town centre.
