Two bedroom homes are a winning choice for buyers

10 September 2015

Demand for two bedroom properties are on the increase with a whopping 92 per cent of first time buyers across Yorkshire opting for a house rather than a flat, according to new research¹.

The recent findings coincide with Persimmon Homes West Yorkshire’s launch of two bedroom homes at its development in Rotherham, which is generating a steady stream of interest.

Simon Whalley, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Yorkshire, believes the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme is making getting on the property ladder more affordable.

He said: “This is our first release of two bedroom homes at The Hedgerows and we are finding customers are amazed at how much they can get for their money.

The research, by Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank, also revealed that of those first time buyers opting for houses, nationally 32 per cent of buyers were looking for two bedroom properties, an increase of 10 per cent from the previous year.

Simon added: “The Moulton, a two-bedroom terraced home, includes a spacious lounge with French doors to the garden, a downstairs cloakroom and a separate kitchen, making it a fantastic first home.

“Since the launch of the Government's Help to Buy scheme we have seen a number of young people take the plunge and purchase their first home, many of whom had feared they would never raise a big enough deposit to secure their home.

Persimmon Homes West Yorkshire is building 211 homes to the south east of Rotherham in Thurcroft.

The Hedgerows offers excellent links to the M1 and M18 and is within easy reach of schools and all the amenities required for daily life.
