Get on the move with Redrow this September

Redrow is hosting an event to support those looking to move to a new-build property, after research confirmed that 28% of Britons see costs as the main barrier to their moving plans.

Over the weekend of 24th and 25th September, Redrow is offering to cover estate agency fees up to the amount of £5,000 to any customer who visits one of its sites and starts the process of buying a new home.*

When contemplating a house move, worry about costs sat ahead of the stress (23%), the logistical challenges (16%) and the emotional implications (15%).

The offer is available at more than 100 of Redrow’s communities with homes available across England and Wales including:

  • Granby Meadows, Harrogate
  • Whitehall Grange, Leeds
  • The Point at Thorpe Park, Leeds
  • Langley Grange, Scissett
  • Poppy Fields, Rotherham

Helping hand

As well as helping people move into new homes, Redrow often helps its homebuyers sell their previous houses and statistics show that, typically, they sell their home in 21 days for 100% of the asking price, trumping the wider national average of 28 days and 98%**.

This comes as reassuring news given that 41% of those polled identified moving house as the most stressful life milestone ahead of having children (29%), changing job (14%) or getting married (8%).

Given the money saved on estate agency fees, Redrow also asked respondents what they would spend £5,000 on if it was earmarked for property enhancements and upgrades.

A new kitchen was the most popular choice – cited by 27% of those polled – followed by improving the outdoor space (21%), new bathroom (18%), new furniture/furnishings (15%) and updating tech and appliances (11%).
