New build properties are back on trend with developers starting to find enough confidence in the market to start building again, and with buyers finding confidence in developers that they will actually finish a project.
New homes are a great option whether you’re a first time buyer, have a growing family, investing or a retiree, they appeal to buyers for a number of reasons:
· Buyers can often tailor the property finish to their taste
· Properties come with various guarantees, for instance NHBC’s 10-year warranty
· Properties have greener energy and therefore lower running costs and energy bills
· High specifications
· Various designs and price ranges
· Low maintenance
· No chain
We’re finding the housing market is really buoyant at the moment and with borrowing becoming easier (the Council of Mortgage Lenders reported an eight-year high in mortgage borrowing) we are optimistic for market growth throughout 2016.
The BBC have stated that: “Consumer confidence is high...new buyer enquiries at estate agents have been rising quickly and point to mortgage approvals rising by a further five per cent over the next three months.”
We’ve definitely noticed this is the case.
New home construction and development is still a growing industry in Sheffield; we have various developers we’re working with on some exciting new schemes, from large developments to one off projects in the S10, S11, S17, S6 and S1 areas.
If you would like to buy an apartment off Dore Road, a flat or cottage in Totley, new build large detached houses in S10 on sites in Crosspool, Ranmoor, and in Fulwood, apartments in the city centre, or a one off bespoke build in Bents Green, Spencers seem to be the go-to agent currently for developers to sell their wares.
Spencers are very proud to have had very long relationships with many of the local development firms and are pleased to tell the world all about how many schemes we have coming onto the market.
We promote our developers as much as they promote us and have many stories of very happy buyers – if you would like to be one of those buyers or if you are a developer with a site or one-off to sell, we would be very proud to help.
