A SEASONAL surge in people searching for property is predicted, but with only a few homes available at Lindow Fields, Wilmslow buyers could find they’re left out in the cold.
Between Christmas and New Year has become one of THE busiest times for people to search for property.
Elan Homes saw a 45% increase in visitors to its website on Boxing Day 2018 compared with November 26 that year. The homebuilder also reports that web traffic on December 26, 2018 was 70% higher than the same date in 2017.
Buyers may therefore be surprised to learn that Elan will close the Lindow Fields development in Wilmslow from December 23 through to January 2, giving staff a well-earned break.
With the final few homes available at the intimate Lindow Fields development, potential purchasers are encouraged to act now to beat the post-Christmas rush.
Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “Traditionally pre-Christmas is a quieter time for the property market, but we want to shake things up and help get people moving sooner rather than later. We would recommend anyone hoping to move in 2020 starts their search now to beat the rush.
“The increase in visitors to our website between Christmas and New Year correlates with a surge in visitors to our developments in January. We could open our show homes between the festivities, but choose not to so that our sales teams can spend quality time with loved ones.”
The final homes at Lindow Fields are four and five-bedroom detached properties, with prices from £514,995 to £699,995.
Homes priced up to £600,000 are eligible for Help to Buy, giving purchasers the chance to reserve with a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage. The remaining 20% is covered by an equity loan, that’s interest free for five years.
Situated off Moor Lane, homes at Lindow Fields enjoy a prime location, backing on to Lindow Common, and with easy access to Wilmslow’s independent boutique and designer name stores; fashionable bars and restaurants. Alderley Edge and Wilmslow stations offer train services to Manchester or London, making this a great base for busy executives.
The setting, along with the superb standard specification offered by Elan has made Lindow Fields a popular choice with discerning buyers.
