When Dan Smith was searching for a brand-new property in the South East, he always knew that he could depend upon Bovis Homes to make his dreams come true.
His strong belief and confidence in the national house builder was built on firm foundations as he had enjoyed many happy times in the property from which he was looking to move – which had been built with pride by Bovis Homes a few years before.
Delighted with the build quality and customer service that he received previously, he had no hesitation in purchasing his next property from Bovis Homes when it was time to move on to his dream location of Littlehampton, along with partner Laura Delaney.
“We had a look at the location and properties that were available and said, ‘Yes, we’ve got to move here’,” explained Dan.
“The house has so much character that we liked it straightaway, so I told the sales team at the launch event, ‘We’ll be back tomorrow to put our deposit down!’.
“It has provided us with a really enjoyable and relaxing lifestyle.”
The welding and grinding manager for Network Rail is just one of thousands of customers who have had made their dream move into a Bovis Home, which are available or coming soon at various attractive locations across the South East.
Hampton Park is among nine developments in the South East where Bovis Homes is currently creating high-quality properties, with new locations on the way at Livingstone Gardens in Essex, Headcorn in Kent and The Maples in West Sussex.
As well as expert support and advice from the sales teams, customers will also have access to exclusive purchase assistance packages.
This includes schemes like the Government-backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan, which is only available on new homes and has helped thousands of buyers since it was launched in 2013.
Available to first-time buyers and existing home owners, with Help to Buy
you only need to save a five per cent deposit, with an equity loan of up to 20 per cent of the value of the property provided by the Government.
The equity loan means the buyer only requires a 75 per cent loan-to-value mortgage, which opens the door to more competitive lending rates, which may mean that repayments are more affordable than initially thought.
Home buyers won’t be charged interest or fees on the Government equity loan for the first five years of owning the home, and they can choose to repay the equity loan at any time without penalty, or on the sale of the property.
The scheme is available on new homes up to a maximum purchase price of £600,000 outside of London, so, with Help to Buy, a dream move into a brand-new Bovis Home could be closer than you think.
And, as Dan and Laura have discovered, by buying a brand-new home you also get so many extra benefits such as energy efficiency and a two-year warranty with after-care support.
What’s more, Dan believes that his choice of house builder has brought him even more advantages.
“I think you get more value for your money with Bovis Homes than other house builders,” he said.
“I’ve always been pleased with the build quality and I like the fact that when you buy a brand-new property with Bovis Homes, the kitchen appliances and some other fixtures and fittings come as standard, which is a massive plus. It saves you a lot of money in the long run.”
Dan and Laura are absolutely thrilled with their new home at Hampton Park on the outskirts of Littlehampton, a vibrant town on the beautiful South East coast.
The location and the properties available at Hampton Park proved an instant hit with Dan and Laura, an optical receptionist, when they visited the development for the launch event.
The next morning, they were back at the sales office to put down a deposit on a three-bedroom ‘Sheringham’ house type.
“Hampton Park is a fantastic location – it’s not far from the beach and other local amenities – and the development has been set out really well with lots of space.
“We’re so proud of our new home and couldn’t be happier that we’ve bought it and moved in!”
Bovis Homes’ other popular developments in the South East are similarly well located and designed, the latest having recently opened its doors at Ribbans Park in Ipswich.
Locations generally feature a range of different house types, from apartments to six-bedroom detached family homes, and all are built to the high standards to which Bovis Homes prides itself.
Bovis Homes customers can look forward to receiving a fantastic service from its knowledgeable and friendly teams across the region – from build, sales and customer care – who are all committed to offering expert support and advice at every step on the home-buying journey.
Communication with the customer throughout the buying process, and onwards through the two-year warranty to ensure any items around the home are dealt with, are key to the Bovis Homes experience, which is underpinned by a commitment to deliver a quality home and excellent service.
To ensure customers are happy with their new home, Bovis Homes teams carry out a thorough Home Demonstration of all appliances and systems before they move in.
The Home Demonstration – part of the comprehensive service offered by Bovis Homes at all its locations – helps customers fully understand and appreciate all the benefits of their new property.
