Brand new community

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - News -

Henwood Place, at Willes­bor­ough, Ash­ford is nearly com­plete – so now is the last chance to have an in­put into the fin­ish of a new home there. With the fi­nal phase of con­struc­tion now un­der­way, the fi­nal buy­ers can still choose the fin­ish­ing touches to their new homes. So from tiles to work sur­faces, your home can be just how you would like it. The new four-bed­room semide­tached homes at Henwood Place are in a pri­vate road off Gor­don Close. With a range of buy­ers from pro­fes­sional cou­ples and fam­i­lies to more ma­ture buy­ers down­siz­ing from large fam­ily homes, Henwood Place has al­ready de­vel­oped a real sense of community. Now the ma­jor­ity of the new homes have been sold, Jones Homes South­ern has re­leased the fi­nal phase of homes for sale, in­clud­ing the show home – and doesn’t ex­pect them to re­main avail­able for long. “We have had plenty of in­ter­est in Henwood Place,” says Sara Stan­hope, sales and mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor for Jones Homes South­ern. Jones Homes is also of­fer­ing its Easy­move scheme which helps buy­ers sell their home.

SINCE a front door is one of the first things po­ten­tial buy­ers see when view­ing a prop­erty, it is an im­por­tant part of cre­at­ing that all im­por­tant pos­i­tive first im­pres­sion. Does a front door with peel­ing paint, a bro­ken bell and dirty marks af­fect the saleabil­ity of your home? Would a clut­tered front gar­den, un­kempt hedges and an over­grown front lawn put a po­ten­tial buyer off? I can tell you that the an­swer to both of these ques­tions is “yes.” In such a tough mar­ket, your kerb ap­peal is key. You need to get po­ten­tial buy­ers through the door. You don’t need to spend much money – a few sim­ple touches can go a long way. If you have a re­ally grotty front door then it would be sen­si­ble to re­place it with a new one. If it’s just a case of peel­ing paint then re-paint­ing it is an easy way to cre­ate a fresh new look. Clear the pave­ment of rub­bish and weeds as well as the drive or path. Smelly bins are never go­ing to be a win­ner so hide these in the garage or stack re­cy­cling con­tain­ers tidily in a cor­ner. If you have a front lawn make sure this is mowed, re­move any dead plants or flow­ers from the beds and trim hedges and bushes. Re­move bikes, chil­dren’s toys or gar­den­ing tools and store them in a shed or garage if you can. Do not leave all this un­til five min­utes be­fore the viewer ar­rives. It is im­por­tant that your prop­erty is look­ing its best for when the es­tate agent takes pho­to­graphs for their web­site and prop­erty brochures.
