Milton Keynes proves to be the ‘Place to Be’ post-Lockdown
Milton Keynes properties have seen a huge spike in interest as people search for an equal balance of countryside and city life post-lockdown.
Research recently published by Zoopla suggests that house buying activity is now 54% higher than at the start of March, as pent-up demand returns to the property market[i] and David Wilson Homes’ Brooklands development is a perfect example of this.
Brooklands has proven to be exceptionally popular post-lockdown due to its unique homes and breadth of amenities right on the doorstep, having sold 10 homes in just four weeks and leaving just 10 properties remaining.
As well as having a range of shops, children’s play facilities, supermarkets and open spaces, the development also boasts great transport links. Reaching London Euston in just 33 minutes, Milton Keynes is becoming the latest hotspot for commuters working in the capital.
Rightmove has also recently published research stating that this time last year, 42% of Londoners enquiring about a property were looking to move outside of the capital, and this has risen to over half (51%) this April.ii
With new upcoming cities becoming the most popular investment choices, Milton Keynes is gaining a lot of attention.
Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “As we see a shift in buyers interests and priorities when choosing a property post-lockdown, we have also seen a huge demand for our Buckinghamshire developments.
“Brooklands has been extremely popular and we believe this is largely due to the ‘best of both worlds’ aspects that this development encompasses. Residents can benefit from open spaces and a quieter pace outside of the centre of the city, whilst still having full access to incredible transport links.
“Our Brooklands development has multiple award winning schools on site, as well as a health centre and shops. The vibrant location of this development means residents can keep their finger on the pulse with the rapidly developing and exciting city of Milton Keynes, without the busy and bustling day-to-day life of a city centre property.”
Brooklands lies on Fen Street in Milton Keynes and has a range of three, four and five bedroom properties to reserve from £358,495.
