Redrow cuts cost of moving home with estate agency fees incentive in Leeds

Redrow is hosting an event to support those looking to move to a new-build property, after research confirmed the costs involved are the main barrier to moving home.

Over the weekend of July 16 and July 17, 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.

This comes after 28% of respondents to a survey identified costs as the main obstacle to their moving plans, 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.

In the year to June 2021, Redrow built more than 5,500 premium new properties across England and Wales and there is no sign of that slowing down.

As well as helping people move into modern new homes, Redrow often helps its homebuyers sell their previous houses and statistics show that, typically, Redrow helps people 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%).

Redrow homebuyers can create a My Redrow account so they can be the first to hear about new properties, save their favourites, manage their appointments and choose their finishing touches.

The Help to Sell weekends are taking place at three Redrow developments in Leeds:

The Point at Thorpe ParkLeeds – a range of two to four-bedroom homes, as well as apartments, reflecting the very best that Redrow has to offer. Currently prices start from £362,950.

James Holmear, Group Sales Director at Redrow, said: “Moving house is an incredibly exciting opportunity to start a new chapter in yours and your family’s life, but it is not without its own stresses and challenges, whether you are a second stepper or downsizing later in life.

“At Redrow we recognise the logistical and financial implications of taking the next step and this weekend event is intended to represent a helping hand on that journey
