Locals Concerned About Being Priced Off the Housing Ladder in Cornwall

MartincloseWith new research showing that the start of winter doesn’t mean an end to second home-buys in counties like Cornwall, and this demand driving up prices by as much as 2% last month; it is no wonder that locals are becoming increasingly concerned about being priced off the housing ladder.

For prospective purchasers worried about how to get on the West Country property ladder, Annington Homes are holding an open day on Saturday 4th December 2010 at their Redruth development, where representatives will be on hand to offer free, expert advice and talk through the range of properties on offer; with prices starting from just £159,950.

With three sales secured in the last three weeks alone, the competitively-priced homes are expected to continue proving popular, particularly amongst locals struggling to get on the housing ladder.

Annington Homes will be holding the open day, between 10am and 12pm at 8 Martin Close, Redruth, TR15 2HL. Guests will be given the opportunity to view the three bedroom semi-detached showhome at the popular Redruth development, situated on the outskirts of the town centre.

The properties have been re-decorated with new carpets to create modern family homes. The homes are superbly located approximately four miles from the picturesque Portreath Beach, on the north coast of Cornwall. There is also convenient access to a range of local schools and shops.

Angela Walsh, Head of Sales & Marketing at Annington, commented: “We recognise how difficult it is for people who are born and bred in Cornwall to get on to the housing ladder at the moment. The homes at our Redruth development are proving extremely popular with young families living in the local area. With this latest influx in second-home sales expected over the winter period, pricing even more people out of the local market, I’m confident that this realistically priced development will attract even more attention.”

Prices at Martin Close start from £159,950 for a three-bedroom semi-detached house, for more information on Redruth, please telephone: 01209 217 281 or visit
