Supporting the home buying process
Our Sales Executives are on hand to guide you through the home buying journey. From reservation, through to exchange, legal completion and handover, we will be there every step of the way.
My preconception of new builds was that the gardens were overlooked and small, but this wasn’t the case at all. We spent the second lockdown in our new home with a garden to enjoy; it made such a big difference and really kept us sane! We’re looking forward to getting it landscaped soon too and really making it our own.
Lockdown restrictions really made me re-evaluate what I was looking for in a home, and a garden and large expanses of green were at the top of my list. Kingsmead is surrounded by countryside which is ideal for weekend activities. I’ve even bought my first ever pair of wellies since moving to Faversham for when I go for long walks in the Kent Downs and the Oare Marshes Nature Reserve.
We had decided we needed a bigger home with more space for Daisy and Alfie to play in, but we hadn’t anticipated being able to move so quickly. With three holidays cancelled – including a trip to Ibiza for Anthony’s 40th birthday – we were able to put this money towards our new home. Once we’d made our mind up that we wanted to move we acted quickly and the team at Crest Nicholson helped make this possible.
We love living in MK, and being able to walk for miles through parkland, without crossing a single road. We had our names on the list for Campbell Wharf before there was even list, and now we’re here, it’s amazing to be living by the Grand Union Canal. Not being tied into a chain made the whole moving process simpler and easier for us, with Crest Nicholson’s team valuing our investment property and handling the logistics of the part exchange process. The sales team and the site team at Campbell Wharf were brilliant and kept us informed throughout the whole process, as well as being on hand to help before and after the move.
We absolutely love the community bond we have developed while living at Finberry, so when we decided to look for a larger house, we knew we wanted to purchase at the same development. We are lucky enough to have great neighbours who are able to babysit Scarlett and Oscar every now and again and we wouldn’t want to give up those relationships; we know that if we ever need anything we can count on our community!
What really stood out for us was the quality of the homes. We’d been house hunting for a while, and nothing really compared to Crest Nicholson. The home ticked all of the boxes, it is extremely spacious, we have an extra room to convert into a guest bedroom, and a lovely back garden which we’ll be able to use year-round. A new home meant it was hassle-free, we got to move in straight away, and the home is much more energy efficient.
If I was renting, it would have been very hard to save up for a deposit for my first home. Thanks to our parents’ helping hand, and the Government backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme, Lucy and I were able to afford the deposit. We were also able to take advantage of the stamp duty holiday, which made it even easier for us to become homeowners.
