Moving house is often quoted as being one of life’s most stressful experiences. When questioned what makes it so challenging, 46% of homeowners said the selling process itself was the biggest concern, according to a survey by estate agent eMoov.co.uk. Helping to take away the stresses and complications of selling a home, Bellway Homes’ Express Mover scheme eases the process of moving to a brand new home and is currently available at Dockside, a collection of contemporary riverside homes in London’s Docklands.
What’s more, last month saw buyer activity at its highest according to Rightmove’s House Price Index that reported figures were strongest they had been since 2007. For those who have a property to sell before they can move house, Express Mover provides support and assistance with Bellway working with a recommended local agent to market the property. Once a sale price is agreed, Bellway takes care of the time-consuming liaison with the agent, encouraging them to secure a buyer as quickly as possible and making sure they work hard for their commission. Bellway Homes will pay the estate agent’s fee, meaning the customer can focus their attention on their move to their brand-new Bellway home.
Emma Denton, Head of Sales at Bellway Homes Thames Gateway, comments: “We appreciate that buying or selling a house is one of those key life events that can be stressful to experience. Our customer service team is on hand to help buyers through the process and, with our Express Mover scheme, which extends to helping get their previous property sold successfully. Selling and buying a house is very time-consuming, so for those busy working families, who don’t have much spare time on their hands, the extra assistance is welcome. Dockside is perfect for busy professionals, especially those that want a convenient location close to Canary Wharf.”
Express Mover is available on the majority of the property types currently available at Dockside. The sleek new waterfront development in Turnberry Quay comprises a range of spacious two and three bedroom apartments including some impressive duplexes. Residents will benefit from the services of an on-site concierge and all homes are finished with a high-quality specification and on trend interior design that complements a modern city lifestyle.
Dockside is situated within walking distance of Canary Wharf, very close to Crossharbour DLR station. The homes have attractive waterside views across the dock to Glengall Bridge and the Canary Wharf skyline. Interiors are airy and light-filled with open plan living areas and full height glazing that leads out to a private balcony or terrace for each property.
The Gosport is a three-bedroom apartment that benefits from two spacious terraces, ideal for enjoying the views and some al fresco summer living. Bellway’s high quality specification is on show throughout, including modern kitchens that come fully fitted with a range of BK Nolte soft close units and integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer and electric oven. Oak flooring comes as standard in the living areas and carpets to the bedrooms.
Local amenities are quite literally on the doorstep as the ground floor of Dockside has a range of shops and restaurants. Canary Wharf itself has extensive shopping and leisure facilities with three shopping malls, as well as a wide variety of restaurants, bars and cafes. For entertainment, the O2 Arena and historic Greenwich are easily reached, just a short hop across the river.
Transport connections from Dockside are excellent – from Crossharbour DLR station, it is three stops to Canary Wharf, and from there, the Jubilee line offers services across London. In 2018 Canary Wharf will become home to a Crossrail station, linking Essex and Kent to Buckinghamshire and Berkshire making east-west travel fast and easy. For international and domestic air travel, London City Airport can be reached in less than 30 minutes by public transport.
