Housebuilder Beal Homes has seen huge interest in its latest development and reported no impact following the EU referendum vote.
The leading regional housebuilder held an invitation-only preview weekend for potential buyers who had previously registered their interest in the hotly-anticipated West Hill development at Willerby, East Yorkshire.
The preview, held at the company’s head office at the Bridgehead business park in Hessle, East Yorkshire, attracted 140 people, with reservations placed for five of the first 19 properties made available. A further eight potential purchasers applied during the preview event to sell their current properties through Beal’s home exchange assisted sale scheme in order to buy a new home at West Hill.
Beal Homes Chairman and Managing Director Richard Beal said:
This was up there with the very best and busiest preview events we have held. On the first day we opened at 11am and there were people waiting in the car park for the doors to open.
We took five reservations on day one, for three and four bedroom detached properties priced at between £250,000 and £440,000, with a total value of £1.5m.
Mr Beal said there was no sign of any dip in confidence following the recent vote to leave the European Union.
We haven’t seen any impact at all from the Brexit vote. Our budget is to sell five homes a week and in the week after the referendum we sold 10 across all developments.
We’ve not received any negative signals and our sites have been just as busy as usual. The exceptionally high levels of interest in the West Hill preview showed how much demand there is to own a Beal home.
Sales Director Sue Waudby said:
We had more than 1,000 registrations of interest in West Hill in advance of the preview, even though there had been almost no marketing activity for the development.
People have been very patient as this development has gone through the planning process, so we were keen to give those people who had expressed their interest the first chance to find out about the fabulous range of properties available, in a great location.
West Hill offers the very best of Beal Homes properties in a place that is still essentially a village location but is so close to great local amenities, including the Waitrose store within walking distance, and has excellent access to the road network.
At least 50% of the people who attended the preview currently own or have previously owned a Beal home. They have had a very positive experience buying and living in a Beal home and want to own another one.
West Hill has 130 mainly detached properties, ranging from three to five bedrooms, with the first releases from £249,995 to £525,000. The development features 18 different house types, including nine top-of-the-range “Signature” properties.
Each home has been designed for modern life, boasting open, contemporary living spaces together with the unique option of altering layouts to enable buyers to create their own highly individual interior of unrivalled quality.
The development will be built amongst traditional woodland and farmland on the Willerby-Kirkella border. It is brilliantly located close to local shops, excellent schools and other facilities and amenities, and offers easy access by road to Hull, Beverley, York and Leeds.
Preparatory work has begun at the site, with construction due to begin within weeks. The first properties are due to be available to move into by March 2017.
