New Homes in West Kent, Thames Gateway, Mid & East Kent

The new homes industry will finish on a high as the year draws to a close. Demand for new homes is still consistently strong and need is outstripping supply, as buyers take advantage of such schemes as Help to Buy. Reports flood in from media outlets daily about the buoyant property market, with the more sceptical among them warning of a housing bubble. However, to stem this tide, the Bank of England recently announced that it will be watching the housing market carefully for signs of overheating in order to take any necessary action. From the more considered opinions among the analysts, though, it seems that no action will be necessary, as affordability remains at the same levels as a decade ago and whilst widespread growth is being experienced, in some areas the increases are still marginal.

The brunt of these increases are being seen in the South East and in London, which places RPC Land and New Homes in an ideal position to help investors, developers and property hunters alike to make the most of this growth.

e: westkent@rpcnewhomes.co.uk

With our proximity to London, first time buyers in Kent should strongly consider looking at new build as a way to getting onto the property ladder, to take advantage of the further growth which is anticipated.

Thames Gateway t: 01634 835900 f: 01634 838879

Having experienced this increased activity here at RPC Land and New Homes, the company has also taken on new staff to meet this fresh demand.

Sue Taylor, New Homes Area Sales Director comments: “I will personally be concentrating on new business generation in our operating areas, with responsibility for overseeing marketing on behalf of the company, which is a very exciting new challenge. Equally, RPC Land and New Homes have recently appointed Kirstie Slaven to the Mid and East Kent Region, as Area New Homes Director, bringing a wealth of experience to the role. Her in depth knowledge of new homes makes her an invaluable addition to the team. By enhancing the RPC team, this enables us to offer a greater breadth and improve the service we provide to clients.� All in all the market shows no signs of slowing down and just like we have experienced in 2013, indications point to 2014 being a very exciting year ahead for the new homes industry.

Market Update The recent Autumn Statement from the chancellor sent out a fairly optimistic message about the state of the economy, with an expected rise of 1.4% in GDP this year, which of course has a more general positive onward effect for the housing market. It also had no surprises for Stamp Duty, indicating that the market looks set to carry on much as it has recently, with a healthy outlook. Despite the whispers of an overhaul of the tax in this budget review, the only Stamp Duty affected was that for shares purchased in exchange traded funds, which was scrapped. The Chancellor also announced a new tax on foreign property investors who are currently driving the market in London, which should help ease the housing market price rises in the Capital. From April 2015, overseas investors will pay capital gains tax (28 per cent) on the profit they make when they sell their UK properties – a tax already applied to British second homeowners. Meanwhile, Councils are to sell off the most expensive social housing and rundown urban housing estates to be regenerated, which is great news for developers out there looking to redevelop brownfield sites and is something which RPC land will be keeping a sharp eye out for. Despite this, there is one area of the market which is struggling amid this wider flurry of activity. Larger new build properties over £1.5million are still yet to feel the benefit of this newfound growth, as the Help to Buy incentives do not apply to anything

over £600,000. Stamp Duty on larger properties is also blighting the top end, as huge sums of ready cash are needed to buy - from 5-7% of the value of homes over £1 million. This sector is being further depressed by the threat of mansion tax, where a one per cent levy would be placed on all properties worth £2 million, expected to raise £2 billion in revenue for the treasury. Hopefully, a decision will soon be made not to introduce this so the top end of the market can also experience a recovery. Split into three divisions of West Kent, Thames Gateway, Mid and East Kent and the, RPC New Homes is brilliantly positioned to be able to offer great local knowledge of Kent, East Sussex and South-East London to any developer or purchaser. With experience of selling everything from 1 bedroom apartments to 6

www.rpcnewhomes.co.uk

bedroom mansions, it enables RPC new homes to offer the right advice to market any size of scheme, no matter how large or small. RPC Land and New Homes can also help builders make the most of these advantageous market conditions and help them tap into the correct demographic of buyers for their properties, through our raft of marketing avenues. By channelling our marketing methods in a focused approach, builders can get the sales values they are hoping for, rather than using incentives to drive the market. New homes sales are currently being driven at a terrific rate, with some builders experiencing a year on year increase of 27% in completions, since the introduction of Help to Buy. All in all, it has been a very positive year for the housing market and RPC Land and New Homes are on hand to assist in reaping the benefits of this for buyers and builders alike.

Why Buy New? Imagine having a blank canvas on which to unlock your decorating skills, perhaps you cherish a home that is easy to heat or maybe you require a home which is low maintenance. A new home ticks all these boxes and more, which explains why over 114,550 new homes were completed in 2012, to respond to this demand. This figure increased rapidly in 2013 as the market started to gather pace and all indications point towards the rest of 2014 being even more buoyant. Unlike second hand homes, new homes offer the chance to put your stamp on a property without having the hassle of removing the decoration of previous occupants. This also means that the outlay when moving home and redecorating can be considerably less when you buy new.

Furthermore, once you have moved in you can be assured of a maintenance-free lifestyle, as should anything go wrong, you are covered for building defects under a 10 year warrantee, like those provided by NHBC, LABC, or Premier. In these tough economic times, with escalating energy prices, a home that is fuel-efficient is a must. Most new build properties are built with very high levels of energy-efficiency to reduce carbon

www.rpcnewhomes.co.uk

footprints and offer owners lower fuel bills. In the long term, these energy savings can add up to thousands of pounds. Very frequently builders will also go where there is demand, meaning that developments are constructed in areas with great amenities and commuter links. This means that homeowners can take advantage of their beautiful new home and the improved quality of life that its location brings.

New Homes

The high speed rail line continues to be a boon for the Mid and East Kent housing market, with increasing numbers moving to these areas for its improved commutability. In East Kent there is also the close proximity to the sea which is a big draw for many, when moving to towns such asWestgate, Sandwich and Dover. RPC New Homes are currently marketing developments in these areas.

Kirstie Slaven

Meanwhile, the County town of Maidstone offers great shopping, fantastic schooling and with its access to two different rail lines in the town, and being situated next to the M20 offers excellent commuter links. There are also plans for a new private hospital and talk of a new university campus in Maidstone, which should see further growth to housing prices in this area too. Buyers would do well to consider Mid and East Kent where there is a lot to offer, but homes still remain affordable.

West Kent new homes

New Homes

Unlike most of the UK, West Kent property values have remained fairly stable throughout the recession and are now beginning to take off once again with continued growth. Sites in this area continue to be very popular due to their commutability and the excellent schooling on offer.

Laila Walker

This also means that West Kent developments can be seen as having great investment potential. In West Kent particularly we will be seeing a great deal of business going forward at RPC New Homes, as we have the ability to promote all sizes of developments, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a one bedroom apartment to a 6-bedroom mansion.

Help to buy boosts new homes market There has been no better time for purchasers to move on or for first time buyers to get a foothold on the property ladder and especially in a new build home. Government backed schemes such as Help to Buy, better mortgage products for new homes and increased lending are all doing their bit to make this process far easier than in recent years. Banks are also being strongly encouraged to increase their lending and are being given incentives to do so by the Government, to help underpin this growth going forward. one of the key reasons for this sudden flurry in the new homes market is the hotly debated Help to Buy scheme, where the Government offer an equity loan of up to 20% for buying new homes. Loans are available to all borrowers (subject to conditions), not only those buying a home for the first time.This of course makes purchasing a home far more affordable and gives buyers access to the better mortgage rates available. Although, not all developers can access the scheme yet, and it only applies to homes below £600,000, there are still a number of schemes out there offering this service. Details of developments offering Help to Buy are available on our website

Help to Buy offers up to 20% of the value of the property in the form of a loan from the Government.This also enables buyers to access the better mortgage rates available on the market.
