Despite Brexit, cold snowy weather and -8 degree frosts the housing market in 2019 has been anything but cold!
Duncan Young, Chairman at Sanderson Young, commented “The launch of our 2 new show homes at Smith’s Dock brought with it 10 new reservations in a couple of days, on top of 37 completing sales as the builders handed over Smokehouses 1 and 2 to the selling agents, giving us a total of 47 sales out of the 80 new flats which form part of Phase 1 of the riverside apartment buildings in this awesome development.“
It seems it wasn’t just North Shields that was popular over the recent weekend but also Hemingway Court in Ponteland, the new name of the former library site by Ascent Homes, where the show flat was released with access to the other stunning flats including two large 3 bedroom penthouses. Duncan commented “Our Hemingway Court development has secured 6 great sales including one of the penthouses, proving the site to be a very significant addition to the local market. We knew as soon as the public could see inside these flats that they would really love their design style and convenience, being located in the heart of the village centre. The Help to Buy scheme and the 1 bedroom affordable housing from £114,950 is a great starting point for local first time buyers.“
It’s not just these two schemes proving popular on the new homes front, Lindisfarne Homes have also secured 5 sales on their luxury, stone and brick detached houses in Warkworth and Lesbury. Gillian Greaves, manager of Sanderson Young’s newly relocated Alnwick office, commented “Since our new office in Alnwick opened in November 2018 we have had record enquiries and leads for this time of the year. The new double shop front is bringing in the buyers and I’m delighted that these luxury 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes are selling so quickly at just over £495,000, and an open weekend on 16th & 17th February provides the first opportunity to actually view the high specification homes in Lesbury. Also in Northumberland we have over 60 people registered and waiting for 7 three storey detached town houses and 6 three bedroom dormer bungalows in Amble, close to the beach and harbour, coming soon from the High Street Group from £295,000.“
Duncan concluded “The first few weeks of 2019 has really been a confident and fresh start for the company with fabulous sales across all price levels and, equally pleasing, our lettings colleagues are concluding some great check-ins for our waiting tenants, keeping all departments busy. Let’s hope the year continues to build on its super start. “
