Confidence is back in the region’s housing market according to David Wilson Homes North West as the housebuilder reports strong sales at local development, Eccleston Park.

Record low rate mortgages and a range of offers to support home buyers, including the recently launched ‘Help to Buy’ scheme, are providing options for all purchasers, from first time buyers to growing families, helping many who regretted not purchasing last year to make the move in 2013.

Indeed, since the start of the year, David Wilson Homes has seen a 15% increase in sales at its developments across the North West, with the division set to achieve a turnover in excess of £30million since 1 January 2013.

Steve Jackson, sales director at David Wilson Homes North West, said: “Buyer confidence is steadily improving and we’re seeing encouraging demand for our homes.

“According to recent research, more than 1.5 million people said their biggest financial regret of 2012 was not moving or buying a home for the first time, and many house hunters across the region are deciding that 2013 is the year to make the move.

“One of the key issues for anyone buying a home continues to be securing the right mortgage.

“The ‘Help to Buy’ initiative will dramatically improve the prospect of owning a first home or moving up the property ladder as it reduces the deposit required to just five per cent and enables qualifying homebuyers to access low cost mortgage finance.

“The scheme also provides new build homebuyers with the prospect of a 20 per cent equity loan from the Government, with no interest payable for the first five years.

“This, coupled with low mortgage rates, is helping people in Lancashire secure their dream home.”

Offering a range of four bedroom homes in Chorley, Eccleston Park has proved popular with buyers in the area and now has only four properties remaining including the stunning Milford family home.

Families can make the most of ‘Help to Buy’ to purchase the beautiful and cleverly crafted Milford, available from £219,995. This detached property features a luxurious open-plan kitchen and family room, which is perfect for entertaining family and friends, a downstairs cloakroom room and a handy utility room. Prospective purchasers will also find that the integral garage offers plenty of extra space, ideal for added storage.

Meanwhile, four double bedrooms, the master of which boasts a spacious en-suite, plus a large family bathroom can be found on the first floor, providing a space in the home for every member of the family to call their own.

As part of the housebuilder’s effort to meet the increasing demand for new homes in the North West, David Wilson Homes will also start work on five new developments during 2013.

Steve Jackson added: “We are already seeing strong interest in our new developments.

“We have had a positive start to the year and expect this trend to continue throughout 2013.

“Now is a great time to take action if you are looking to move house and we would encourage any interested buyers to come down to Eccleston Park, to find out more about the support available from David Wilson Homes.”

David Wilson Homes North West has also recently achieved the maximum five- star housebuilder rating in an annual customer satisfaction survey, run by the Home Builders Federation (HBF). This is the fourth consecutive year David Wilson Homes North West has achieved the five-star rating.
