Part exchange gives Abbotswood buyers a step up

The Council of Mortgage Lenders has revealed that mortgages for ‘second steppers’ are at the highest level in seven years. A total of £32.4bn was advanced to 188,000 consumers buying a property during the three months to the end of September, the highest level on both measures for any quarter since 2007.

With this increase in lending, consumer confidence in taking that second step to a new home is on the rise. Buyers wishing to do just that, can do so at Bellway’s Abbotswood Park development in Leavesden. A range of two, three, four and five bedroom homes completed to a high specification are now available from £409,995 with the part exchange scheme.

Kevin Bowles, Sales Manager of Bellway Homes North London said: “Finding the best time to sell your first home, and look to purchasing your second can be tricky, especially in this thriving property market. The news that banks are approving more mortgages for second steppers, compared to seven years ago, gives everyone the confidence that it is the right market to move. Also, with our part exchange scheme, we can ensure the move goes a lot smoother and more quickly too.”

All the homes at Abbotswood Park are designed with space in mind and benefit from generous open plan design and living areas.

The Kirkstead, a five bedroom detached property is a great example of the larger family homes available at Abbotswood Park. Double fronted, the property features an attached garage whilst on the ground floor, the spacious kitchen/breakfast and family area features double doors that offer access onto the rear garden. The well-presented kitchen offers modern work surfaces and a range of appliances.

Residents will also find the living room and dining room situated on either side of the entrance, both featuring large bay windows that overlook the front of the property. Also conveniently located at this level is a utility room and cloakroom.

On the first floor, residents will find the master bedroom, which benefits from fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. The second bedroom also has its own en suite shower room, while the third, fourth and fifth bedrooms are served by a family bathroom, featuring modern sanitary ware and a towel rail.

Abbotswood Park is conveniently situated within three miles of both the M25 and M1 motorways. The countryside is close at hand with the wide open spaces of nearby Leavesden Country Park and the woodlands and fields of the surrounding Hertfordshire landscape. Watford is within easy reach with its excellent shopping, entertainment and other amenities such as the excellent primary and secondary schools.

Special offers are available on some properties such as Bellway’s part exchange scheme, which helps buyers to move more quickly, subject to availability and terms and conditions. This means buyers are able to sell their current home and the whole process can be completed very quickly, with all estate agent fees and valuations taken care of and a Bellway staff member on hand to help.
