Stewart Milne Homes Gets it Right Again as New Purchase Plan Boosts Buyer Activity

Stewart Milne Homes’ Sell Your Home in Five Days service is proving to be exactly what today’s homebuyer needs, with over 50 percent of customers having utilised the uniquely tailored purchase plan since its introduction in March.

Commenting on the company’s Sell Your Home in Five Days plan, John Slater, Stewart Milne Group managing director – Homes, said:

“Today’s market is constantly evolving and with such an ever-changing environment, buyers’ needs are frequently shifting in response. We spend a considerable time talking with homeseekers and conducting in-depth research to ensure we stay in touch with the real challenges and concerns to create practical, effective solutions.

“Whilst there are a number of effective purchase methods within the market, we are aware that there are still uncertainties amongst potential buyers, such as the processes and timescales involved.

“Addressing these issues, we developed a fast-track fuss-free approach to selling an existing property with the five day sale plan, which offers the transparency and clarity that buyers can get to grips with.  The fast track commitment within Sell Your Home in Five Days has proved fundamental to its success, as it presents the firm reality of selling an existing home in less than a week. This is the kind of tangible assurance buyers require to progress their moving plans with confidence.

“It is extremely encouraging to see our approach being so well received in just the first few months, and we are delighted to be providing more buyers with the confidence to take the next step on the property ladder.”

Stewart Milne Homes’ Sell Your Home in Five Days service provides customers with two independent valuations and a guaranteed offer for an existing property within five working days from the initial consultation. Once accepted, the company will take care of the entire sale, removing the need for estate agency fees, listings, brochure and marketing costs along with the charges associated with a Home Report and Energy Performance Certificate.

Beverley Murdoch, from The Lothians, found Stewart Milne Homes’ purchase plan pivotal to securing their new family home at Athena Grange, Prestonpans, this June.

“We were keen to move to a bigger home to accommodate our two growing children and my elderly mother, but the quieter market was posing a challenge, as we needed to sell quickly to avoid Granny spending another winter alone.

“When we found how quickly and easily we could move with Stewart Milne Homes, moving became a reality for the first time.

“We had looked at hundreds of properties but had not seen any that compared with the size of the three storey five bedroom home we spotted at Athena Grange – we fell in love instantly.

“The process was surprisingly quick and easy. We received a very competitive offer for our existing property within five days – all we had to do was sign on the dotted line and the rest was taken care of. The sales team also put us in touch with an independent mortgage advisor, which really helped us navigate through the various choices and find the best deal for us.

“We were able to move to our new home in just five weeks and saved around £2,500 in the usual selling costs, as we didn’t need to worry about things like estate agents or the Home Report. This was another big pressure off our minds, especially with a growing family to manage!”
