Mon 23 Oct 2017

A development of nine apartments in the centre of Leamington “which accurately reflects the town’s property market” has all sold off plan.

Dickins House, in Kenilworth Street, has been created by local development firm Kigass, and the range of one, two and three-bed apartments sold quickly after the scheme was first announced.

Edward Bromwich, of ehB Residential which has handled the sales and marketing of the development, said the new residents emphasised the state of the property market in Leamington.

He said: “These are apartments which are finished to a really high standard and there is a range of sizes, so they were appealing to potential owners and tenants with different needs – and that is exactly what we have got.

“There is a split of owner occupiers and rental properties. There is a couple who have returned to this country from abroad, there is an academic from the University of Warwick and an executive who have all bought.

“The properties that have been bought by investors have been let to people who are coming to this area – and the country – to work at Jaguar Land Rover.

“That reflects the demand in the town. Leamington has a wide range of properties for sale or rent, there is a great environment, good shopping and leisure, and we have a buoyant economy.

“The recent national publicity about this being the happiest place in England has also done no harm to the image of Leamington.

“We knew because of the standard of the specification and the quality finish by the developers, along with the town centre location, that the properties would sell, but to have completely sold out off plan is very encouraging.

“We regularly have people who sell and move into rented accommodation, just to ensure they are in the best position to pounce when property in a location they like comes on to the market.”

Bromwich added that features such as lockable storage, the alternative energy supplies that the developer included such as electric car charging points and secure parking also helped to achieve a quick sale at Dickins House.

Joanne Wardman-Smith, of Kigass, said: “Clearly we are delighted the apartments have sold so well and with the power and professionalism that ehB brought to the marketing of Dickins House, but mostly we are really pleased with the development and how it has regenerated a key area in the town centre.

“Kenilworth Street is right in the heart of the town close to what is accepted to be an outstanding leisure offer. It was a street level, rough ground car park for many years which was in need of improvement and this development will bring valuable footfall to those businesses.”

"Chris and the team at eHB have provided my wife and I with an amazing service. Given we are the other side of the world in Sydney, selling a house in the UK can be challenging/daunting. Chris made sure that the whole process was incredibly smooth. eHB provided us with sound advice, have been very efficient and quick to follow up any queries. We have also used eHB to rent the property for the last 7 years and it's been a great experience. The vetting and qualification process for both tenants and buyers has been sound. We have had amazing tenants and we had a great long list of potential buyers that were well qualified. Chris and the team got the house off the market in record time, for a great price. I would highly recommend eHB for both sale and rental. Thanks for your great efforts guys, it's been a pleasure working with you. Cheers."
