Rapid sales at new Dyffryn Glas development
18 December 2015
More than 10 houses are being bought every month at a thriving new development in Pontypridd.
Between two and three properties are being snapped up by eager house hunters every week.
Dyffryn Glas is made up of 70 two, three and four bedroom homes. The houses went on sale in June this year and already 30% per cent have been sold.
The Help to Buy scheme has been extensively used, with 30% per cent of purchasers at Dyffryn Glas taking advantage of the Government initiative.
Head of Sales Victoria Williams said she was delighted with the first six months of trading – but not in the least bit surprised.
She said: “Our sales advisers have certainly been kept very busy at Dyffryn Glas. To sell three properties a week is a fantastic effort.
“We knew that this development would be popular as it’s in such a fantastic location. Hawthorn is a lovely little village and it’s only two miles away from the bustling town on Pontypridd.
“This is a relatively small development of just 70 properties. If they keep selling at this rate then those left won’t be around for much longer.
“People should act now to secure their preferred plots.”
Two bedroom properties start at £136,995.
The area caters for all educational needs with Hawthorn Primary nearby and the University of South Wales less than 15 minutes away in the car.
As well as Help to Buy, Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council’s Homestep scheme is also available.
Under Homestep, people can buy a home at 70 per cent of the market value. The council would retain 30 per cent of the value via a charge on the deeds. Homeowners can buy the 30 per cent after 12 months or when they sell must repay the 30 per cent on completion.
