KEEPING IT IN THE FAMILY IN MIDLOTHIAN!
Karen Dewar says:
“David and I had taken the decision to downsize but had found it difficult to adapt to a smaller property. We both prefer new-build so we had a look around at the various developments underway locally –and fell in love with the three bedroom detached Dunbar showhome at Wester Meadow. Although we’ve literally moved by less than a mile, when I walked into the showhome I knew this was the perfect home for us. The rooms are a great size, and we’ve got a brilliant garden and although there are a fair few family homes at this development it doesn’t feel too big.”
“Although I loved the house the reality of selling our other property hit home, and we were a bit cautious given the state of the market. But Jacquie, the sales executive at Wester Meadow was brilliant. She reassured us and was able to offer Taylor Wimpey’s part-exchange scheme which worked brilliantly for us. She was really helpful with all our questions, really knowledgeable about the whole process and she kept us in the loop of what was going on. We had no stress or hassle and they sold our property within a week!”
“Donna and Steven popped up to Wester Meadow just after David and I had bought our new home, and they just fell in love with it. And having them just round the corner makes this move just perfect, and of course I’ll be very handy if I’m lucky enough to be given grandchildren!”
Donna Anderson says:
“Our friends and family thought we were mad to consider buying a new home at the same time as planning our wedding but to be honest it worked out brilliantly and really stress-free. Mum had told me about Wester Meadow and following a visit to the showhomes both Steven and I had fallen in love with the development. Plus we really couldn’t believe just how much we could get for our money – so with Taylor Wimpey’s help we’ve been able to jump from a one-bedroom flat to a three bedroom home and we’re so happy.
“We also used Taylor Wimpey’s part-exchange scheme and took full advantage of advice from the Independent Financial Advisor, and we used an approved Taylor Wimpey solicitor which made the whole process really hassle-free. We both work full-time, so we knew the assistance the part-exchange scheme offers would be brilliant, because we knew that we’d have no time during the day for calls and meetings about getting our flat on the market. But Taylor Wimpey literally takes care of everything including arranging estate agents, particulars and the actual sale of your house. They also sold our apartment within a week which was brilliant.”
“Our move-in day didn’t feel stressful at all. In fact Steven had our keys by 9.30am, I unfortunately had to work, but friends and family helped with the move and it went really smoothly. New-build works for us as we don’t have time for DIY and it was lovely to simply move-in and everything was new. And as a wedding gift Taylor Wimpey gave us all the white goods in the kitchen which was just the icing on the cake!”
“Since owning my own flat, my mum and dad have always lived just a few houses away, so it’s probably no surprise to our friends and family that we’ve done it again! It works for us and of course mum has plenty of room in her big three bedroom detached house just around the corner for all those grandchildren she’s hoping for!”
