Such is the confidence that one housebuilder instills in its buyers one family relocated 250 miles from Kent to Nottinghamshire to a home they had bought off plan!
Katie Bird, 39, her husband and son aged 3 made the move from Dover on the South coast to Ollerton near Newark, close to where Katie enjoyed her childhood, after purchasing a home from leading housebuilder Miller Homes.
“We wanted to relocate near to my parents after our son was born as we couldn’t practically keep driving to Nottinghamshire every weekend,” said Katie. “It was during a weekend visit home when we found Miller Homes’ The Meadows development and discovered our perfect home ‘The Chesterton’ as well as their Home Exchange scheme that could make everything happen for us.”
Within just a few days the Bird Family found that they were able to proceed with their Home Exchange and purchased the three bedroom detached ‘Chesterton’ off plan having never viewed a home of its type before!
“Some people might think that it was a huge risk to take but I had complete confidence in Lyn (Miller Homes sales adviser) and Vic (Miller Homes site manager) and the team at The Meadows from the very beginning,” said Katie. “They were clearly very knowledgeable and during the entire process kept us up to date with pictures, texts and emails so we could see our new home being built.”
The Bird family have been so pleased with their house buying experience that they have since purchased a two bedroom apartment at the development as an investment for their son’s future.
“I cannot recommend Lyn, Vic and the team at The Meadows highly enough – they really did make a huge difference to what could have been a very stressful situation,” said Katie.
“Keeping our buyers informed is part of our ‘Miller Difference’ policy and Vic and I work closely together to ensure that all our buyers thoroughly enjoy the entire purchase process at The Meadows,” said Lyn Macklam sales adviser Miller Homes Yorkshire.
Home Exchange is available (subject to qualifying conditions) on upgrades, downsizes and ‘like for like’ swaps.
Properties currently available at The Meadows include two bedroom apartments priced from £89,995, three bedroom homes from £134,950 and four bedroom detached homes from £184,995.
The Meadows can be found at Beacon View, Ollerton, NG22 9WE. The sales team can be contacted on 0808 250 6458 or can be visited from Thursday - Monday, 10.30am - 5.30pm.
