A Busy New Homes Market In Hampshire

Posted 11 November 2020 by Keith Osborne

House-hunters will find a lot of launches and special offers right now at new homes developments across Hampshire...

Hampshire has always been a great place to live thanks to a real spectrum of villages towns and cities in urban, rural and coastal locations, some spectacular countryside and coastline and great connectivity to London and many other cities.

House-hunters seek a brand new home won’t be disappointed by the choice of properties currently available. From affordable starter homes to luxury mansions, there’s something for every budget and requirement. With the end of the year approaching, there can be some excellent offers to keen buyers and still the chance to move in before Christmas.

According to figures from Lloyds Bank, there’s a price premium of as much as 12% for enjoying living in a market town. Offering an affordable way onto the property ladder a short walk from the heart of Bishop’s Waltham, Radian Homes, part of the Abri Group has just launched Tangier Walk, a new collection of two- and three-bedroom houses available to purchase through Shared Ownership.

Stuart Hensby, associate director of sales and marketing at Abri Group, commented: “Market towns have always held appeal for those looking for a quieter pace of life. With a strong community and plenty of amenities on the doorstep, it’s easy to see why. However, the high costs for a home in these desirable towns often prices buyers out, so the offering of Shared Ownership at Tangier Walk, combined with the quality interior specifications and open spaces the development offers, will appeal to many.”

Each has spacious internal accommodation, including open-plan living and dining rooms with access to fully turfed private rear gardens, and all are fitted with photovoltaic roof panels to support eco-friendly energy usage and benefit from off-street parking for convenience. The Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Bishop’s Waltham Infant School is close by and Botley train station is 10 minutes away by car, for connections to London Waterloo and Portsmouth and the M27 and M3 motorways provide easy links to Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth.

Homes are priced from £124,000 for a 40% share of a two-bedroom house (based on a full market value of £310,000). Find out more at www.radianhomes.co.uk.

Also available via Shared Ownership is a new range of new apartments being launched by St Arthur Homes at Chapel Riverside in Southampton across 27-29 November. This ‘Black Friday Weekend’ launch is accompanied by a special offer of a £2,000 IKEA voucher for people who reserve a home over those three days, which they can use to furnish their home.

Overlooking the River Itchen is a selection of one- and two-bedroom, each with allocated parking, ideal for first-time buyers. They come with a high-quality specification complete with bespoke detailing and a contemporary finish. Claude Hooper Interiors designed the new two-bedroom show home and commented: “Our design team took their initial inspiration from contemporary waterside living. With the current climate, we have included both a fresh outdoor space in which to enjoy the stunning views, as well as a practical yet stylish working from home space within the guest bedroom. The artwork used is also inspired by the surrounding area and waterside theme.”

A Guide To Part Buy Part Rent
Part Rent Part Buy is a scheme you can use with Home Reach where you buy a share of your chosen newly built home and pay a monthly rent on the part you don’t buy. Your budget will decide the size of the share you buy, rather than the size of your home. So, you might decide to buy a bigger share of a lower priced home or a smaller share of a more expensive home.

You are able to purchase your share in either cash savings or by taking out a mortgage. If you are taking out a mortgage to finance your share, you will need to allow for a minimum of 5% deposit. The larger your deposit (typically 10%) the lower your mortgage repayments are likely to be.
