CONNELLS’ Southern Land & New Homes division announces another successful year of activity in 2016.  Building on the division’s record results for 2015, the new homes team enters 2017 with a 40% increase in its pipeline, which is set to bring many more quality new homes onto the market this coming year.

Some development highlights for the Hampshire region included: all 24 apartments at Verum House, Basingstoke, sold within a week of its launch; all properties at Daneshill Court, Basingstoke, sold off-plan in one evening at its launch event; 70% of homes at Mapmakers, Southampton, sold with only 20 homes now remaining.

Viv Denyer, New Homes Business Development Manager for the Hampshire region says:  “2016 was another terrific year for the Connells Southern Land & New Homes division and we’re proud to be part of one of the most successful land and new homes businesses in the UK.  As we continue to grow and improve our results every year, we hope to help and serve more and more house hunters in their search for a new home.”

Connells was instructed on 104 developments across its Southern region last year, which is expected to bring almost 1,200 new homes to the market in 2017.  Some developments to look out for this Spring include:  phase two of Vantage House in Basingstoke, comprising one and two bedroom apartments; 100 new two, three and four bedroom homes at Fairways, Beggarwood; five exclusive new homes at Anstey Lane, Alton.

“Unsurprisingly, demand for property continues to far outweigh supply and the development of new homes plays a very important role in creating more housing stock for the UK population,” continues Viv.  “With various schemes like Help to Buy still available to assist aspiring homebuyers with purchasing a new home, plus the Government placing a strong focus on house building and home ownership, we are expecting another very busy year for the new homes market.  In fact, we’ve already been instructed on a further 361 new homes in January alone, and we’re looking forward to continuing to work with our valued developer partners throughout this year to provide our customers with a fantastic choice of quality new homes.”
