Home buyers can beat the squeeze in Darwen

"Get a move on the get the best deals" is the advice offered by Miller Homes new homes sales adviser Sue Bolton. With new releases, special offers and the MiWay low cost equity loan scheme available, Sue is confident that spring home buyers will be delighted to discover Woodland Park in Darwen.

Woodland Park is one of Miller Homes most popular developments. The build programme continued through the recession and is now flying high, with a new phase, choice of new 2, 3 and 4 bedroom house designs with attractive prices and incentives.

"It's no surprise to me," Sue continued, "that Woodland Park is one of Miller Homes' most successful developments. At Miller Homes we are doing everything we can to help people beat the squeeze on personal finances and move on to or up the property ladder this spring. With low interest rates, great value offered in the choice of new, energy efficient homes, plus purchasing options like MiWay, where buyers own 100% but pay just 85% of the price now, there may never be a better time to buy."

The Halifax survey 'Buying vs Renting' results confirmed in August that rental costs had risen and it was now more expensive to rent than to buy a new home†. With the undersupply of new homes, improving mortgage supply, the market is on the rise. The Nationwide reported that house prices edged up 0.6% in February alone. The window of opportunity is now.
