The cost of moving has increased by 25% for the average house buyer over the last decade according to research by Post Office Money, with buyers underestimating the cost by a third. For second steppers looking for a more cost effective and faster move in Rochford, Essex, Bellway Homes’ Express Mover scheme at Eastbury Park will save thousands of pounds. The scheme aims to take the hassle away from buying a new home as Bellway will do the groundwork to find a buyer for the first property and ensures there are no costly estates agent fees.
Eastbury Park consists of two, three, four and five-bedroom houses set in the semi-rural town of Rochford, which is close to the coastal town of Southend-on-Sea and just under an hour into London, so commuters can have the best of both worlds. These homes are ideal for families and commuters looking to climb the property ladder and are set in an enviable location for easy travelling into the capital, but far enough to enjoy the peaceful environment.
Emma Hamlett, Sales Director at Bellway Thames Gateway, comments: “Eastbury Park is perfect for families looking for their next home. We are confident that with our Express Mover scheme, we can assist with the stressful moving process, while cutting the cost of estate agent fees. A number of our plots have been secured this way already, as sellers look for a cheaper and easier way to move home. We welcome anyone looking to sell their current home to come down and see for themselves what our development has to offer.”
The houses at Eastbury Park are built to the high-quality specification that Bellway Homes is renowned for. Its Fitzgerald four-bedroom house features a large entrance hallway, an open-plan kitchen and family room with a separate lounge offering dual aspects. The house comes with integrated kitchen appliances, white Roca sanitaryware to the bathrooms, with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite to the master bedroom.
