The New Homes Division of Sanderson Young are extremely excited to announce that they will launch a staggering £81.5 Million worth of new build property to the market in 2018 across 17 development projects.
This level of industry has not been seen since peak market days pre-recession and Janet Hopkinson, New Homes Director of Sanderson Young, is delighted to welcome this investment to the region. “We have been at the forefront of new homes development and sales since Sanderson Young’s inception in 1999, and have acted alongside some of the country’s most exciting developers on flagship schemes throughout the North-East Region. A downturn in the sector over the past decade is now turning on its head, and we are thrilled by the level of commitment and investment in the provision of exciting new homes”.
Janet is also excited by the variety offered by the schemes due to launch in the coming months, with different trends emerging and areas transformed by these projects. “We are certainly seeing a commitment from developers to not only provide much needed new homes, but to also adjust landscapes with stimulating architecture and improve whole areas through regeneration projects. At Smith’s Dock in North Shields, UrbanSplash and Places for People have brought about a sense of place making and even have the stamp of approval from one of the most respected minds in modern housing, George Clarke”.
We have also seen an investment in the luxury market, with executive family homes providing a much-needed step up to assist movement in the middle market price point. “Brunton Square from County Life Homes in North Gosforth has been a resounding success, with values from £750,000 to almost £1Million, and almost 50% of these sales were facilitated by assisted move schemes and part exchange offers, enabling purchasers to move into their new properties much quicker and easier than they anticipated”, comments Janet.
Contemporary versus traditional housebuilding will also be tested this summer, as Lindisfarne Homes, famous for the outstanding Beadnell Point development which sold out after unprecedented levels of demand last year, release two sites on the same weekend. “This is a fantastic opportunity to hit the market at exactly the same time with two very different projects”, says Janet. “The bespoke designs of executive housing in the stunning Northumbrian villages of Warkworth and Lesbury will offer buyers a fantastic choice between modern styling and traditional form. This is a trailblazing idea and we are very excited to be on board with sales, working with a developer who creates a high-quality product”.
Sanderson Young have fostered a full-scale development team of chartered surveyors and experienced sales agents, enabling them to cement their position as market leaders in this field; providing land appraisals and cutting deals at the early stages of a development, through to providing advice on price and housing mix on site, as well as sales and marketing strategy, branding and advertising. “We love to be involved in a project from day one, advising our clients from the ground up, where we can really make a positive impact and provide unprecedented market knowledge backed up by real sales data from our significant experience in the sector. Our clients find this invaluable to assessing the viability of a project and yield the best results from the land they have acquired” comments Janet. “2018 is set be a very exciting year and we can’t wait to get moving with sales on the outstanding portfolio of new homes bringing much-needed life to the regional marketplace”.
