Ashford proves a hot property with buyers
26 July 2012
Persimmon Homes South East has exceeded all sales expectations on one of its developments in Kent to become one of their fastest selling sites in the region
The sales team at BridgefieldNine, in Ashford, have been delighted by the success of the development, which saw a collection of nine apartments all snapped up in less than eight weeks.
Julia Price, sales director for Persimmon Homes South East, said: “BridgefieldNine was a small, select development of fantastic one and two bedroom apartments, offering flexible living space with either a balcony or terrace. They were perfect for first time buyers and those looking to downsize without compromising on space and quality.
“We expected it to be popular, as it represented a rare opportunity to buy a brand new apartment in the area, but even we’ve been bowled over by how quickly the homes have been reserved.
“We are now seeing similar levels of interest at our Scholars Place development in Ashford, where demand is leading to a rise in ‘buying off-plan’, as people reserve properties that have not yet been built. We have even had a reservation on an apartment where the brochure had not even been printed!
“Buying a property off-plan, before a single brick has been laid is the surest way to secure an early choice from the best plots and enable you to personalise your new home to individual tastes, with options on kitchens, tiles and Finishing Touch upgrades. It is also the time to purchase your dream home at a competitive price.
“What’s more, with excellent rental yields, we are seeing significant investor interest here too, sending a positive signal for the local economy.”
Scholars Place at Repton Park, Ashford, offers well-designed one and two apartments from £110,995* in a convenient location with local amenities, and close to the region’s key commuting links via the M20 Junction 9 just one mile away, plus easy access to the fast line hub to both London and Europe. The development also has a selection of three, four and five bedroom family homes, all of which are selling fast.
Julia added: “For more information about the benefits of buying off-plan, including the opportunity to specify design choices such as kitchen units and worktops to your own taste, please call Scholars Place on 08434 870726 or call into the development any day between 10am and 5pm.”
