Buckinghamshire homebuilder breaks down barriers to moving following new survey
Leading homebuilder Barratt and David Wilson Homes is helping Buckinghamshire residents overcome their barriers to moving properties which have been revealed in a recent survey.
Moving home can be a daunting task and there are many concerns that home buyers may have, such as Brexit, Coronavirus and the difficulty of selling your existing property.
The survey conducted by the five star developer* has revealed that the biggest concerns amongst residents are that Brexit has impacted the housing market (20%) and the current safety issues around having other people around their home (20%).
Jason Hearn, Sales Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes South Midlands, is giving residents in the county a helping hand to conquer their moving fears:
He said: “It is understandable to think that Brexit has impacted the housing market, however, the Chancellor’s recent budget announcement may help to settle your concerns.
“The mortgage guarantee scheme offers confidence for lenders to help families take a first step on the property ladder, widening home ownership and enabling industry to increase housing supply, building more homes and creating more jobs and economic growth across the country. The Stamp Duty extension will also help thousands of people complete the purchase of their homes over the coming months, supporting the housing market at a time of uncertainty.”
With the pandemic still ongoing and government guidelines still in place, concerns of having others coming round to view your existing property are completely understandable.
Jason continued: “To combat this, we recommend having a tidy and recording a walk through video so others can view your home in this manner. You can also take as many photos as possible for potential buyers. This may be enough for someone to purchase your home. If the potential buyer still wants to look round in person, the wait until the guidelines allow others into your home is nearly over.”
“No matter what the barrier may be to making your move, we advise you to get in touch with one of our award winning sales teams, who will answer any questions you may have.”
