Every month one of Essex's property gurus will be taking us through three of the county's most sought after properties
This week’s expert is... Aaron Breakwell
Aaron Breakwell is New Homes Director at Beresfords and has been selling new build developments across Central and North London as well as Essex for 24 years.
Demand for new homes continues to be high with people recognising the advantages of being able to choose fundamentals, such as kitchen and bathroom style and colours. There’s also little doubt that the energy efficiency and low maintenance of new homes is attractive. Many new builds also qualify for the Government’s HelpToBuy scheme and some developers will take your current property in part exchange.
Allsaints will be a collection of eight professionally designed homes stunningly restored from the original buildings of a former school, situated in the historic town of Maldon. Allsaints launches in spring 2018. Contact Beresfords on 01621 853111 to register for your early interest.
