Getting the keys to your new home is always a special moment, but it was particularly exciting for Leigh Davies when, along with her husband Derek, she took ownership of their new four bedroom detached home at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland’s Newton Farm development on her birthday.
It is the perfect end to a very stress-free process as Leigh (aged 26) explains: “We bought our first property from Taylor Wimpey on an earlier phase at Newton Farm about five years ago, but we wanted more space and the time had come to take a step up the property ladder. We popped along to the latest phase of new homes near the new Newton Farm Primary School, and we were really impressed.
“We’ve kept in touch with our original sales executive Alason, and it was great that she was able to help us with our move this time too. Getting the keys to our dream home on my birthday was just the icing on the cake, and Alason has made the whole event really special.”
The couple took advantage of Taylor Wimpey’s Part Exchange scheme as Derek (aged 38) adds: “When we made the decision that a move was on the cards, we did look around at other Taylor Wimpey developments, other developers and the second-hand market to get a feel for what we could afford for our budget.
“But we’re really happy living at Newton Farm and over the last five years it has developed a lovely community feel which will only continue to get better, so we decided to see how Taylor Wimpey could help us.
“We had discussed Taylor Wimpey’s part exchange scheme with Alason so we knew that we could make our move with no stress or hassle. It really was a simple process and because the team at Taylor Wimpey arranged everything, we literally just had to pack-up and move.
“We didn’t even need to move-out ahead of our move-in date to the new house because Taylor Wimpey were effectively buying our flat so there were no other purchasers and their entry dates to worry about. Everything has gone so smoothly.”
The couple are already making their mark on their new homes as Leigh continues: “I can’t believe how at home we feel already in our new house even although there is still some unpacking do. We absolutely love all of the space that we have now, and we can’t wait to get every room looking the way we want it. Our friends and family are delighted that we’ve stayed local and they just love our new house – so many of them have already popped in to say hello, it’s lovely.”
The couple also found that Taylor Wimpey’s new customer journey offered them a number of benefits as Derek adds: “As part of our customer journey, our customer relationship manager met us at our new house to take us through a full demonstration of how all of the systems in our house works. It was really worthwhile and really informative with lots of hints and tips on what to do and how to set everything up – which just adds to us feeling right at home already.”
Building new homes is just one aspect of development life for Taylor Wimpey at Newton Farm as Audrey Ross, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland adds: “Over the years and over the course of several phases of new homes, Newton Farm has evolved to be a great place to call home for hundreds of our customers.
“And we’re seeing quite a few buyers, just like Leigh and Derek, who are looking to stay local and Newton Farm offering just exactly the type of property they need to move up the property ladder.
“The masterplan vision for Newton Farm is really taking shape now and buyers from earlier phases are beginning to see the whole area transform as the development becomes even more established.
“Contributing to the maturity of the site is the provision of key infrastructure and the services that our customers benefit from in everyday life. As part of our Section 75 Agreement with South Lanarkshire Council, we provided around seven acres of serviced land for Newton Farm Primary School to be built, so we’re delighted to see this vision come to life and that young families will have such an important community facility right on their doorstep.”
