How to find your new home, from home

21st May 2020

Lockdown has got most of us reaching for a paintbrush or researching home improvements!

Relegated to home, those little niggling issues might be starting to feel bigger, and any itchy feet you had prior to the pandemic outbreak might be feeling like they really need scratched now.

Thanks to dedicated sales teams and the wonders of digital technology many house builders are still offering the chance to view and purchase homes from the comfort of your sofa.

The government has placed no restrictions on the purchase of new homes and has instead recommended everyone involved in a property sale work within and adapt to comply with the measures around social distancing and self-isolation.

As a growing and flourishing new community, home builders at Countesswells are offering a mix of virtual tours, offers and support to help you get the keys to your new home just as quickly as before.
