Southgate Court – Happy Buyer
Angus is a first-time buyer using help to buy, a Scotland government initiative designed to support first time buyers, and existing homeowners purchase a brand new property. Help to buy is available on all properties at Southgate Court, this is a great way to give young people like Angus the affordability to get on to the property ladder rather than having to save for a few more years to get a deposit together. Angus is currently working full-time as a Valuer for Corum estate agents, he explained ‘the appeal of buying a brand new property is that you can move in without the stress of dealing with a second hand project, it is a blank canvas that you can put your own stamp on.’
The reputation of Westpoint Homes in the local area played a huge part in Angus’ decision to purchase at Southgate Court. He described that ‘the superior quality and uniqueness of the product Westpoint build is second to none, and when a development came up in as prominent a location as Pollokshields, it was an opportunity not to be missed.’ This stunning development is situated within walking distance of Glasgow City Centre, additionally if the weather is bad there is superb transport links to both the City Centre and Shawlands where you will find a host of eating and drinking options making it the perfect place to buy your first home.
The process of buying off plan is a daunting task to many people, but when you enter a sales centre which has ‘accurate CGI’s, in-depth floor-plans and a brochure describing the quality and specification of the build, it becomes a lot easier to trust a quality brand like Westpoint Homes’, explained Angus. Furthermore, he added the ‘sales centre is taken to another level, with the exquisite detailing within a scaled model of the build, allowing you to locate exactly the property of interest. This was a great asset when presenting the apartment to my parents.’
Following this, Angus met with the New Homes Coordinator who professionally discussed the vast number of options available from a fantastic range of kitchen units to bathroom tiling, this allows the client to make the property their own. Angus described this as a fantastic personalised service, and it really shows the prestige of Westpoint Homes. ‘The beauty of purchasing a property from Westpoint is the trust and relationship that is formed throughout the process, the sales consultants were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about their product and the surrounding areas. Further to this, the weekly updates of the build progress shows the care from Westpoint Homes. Southgate Court is at a lower price point than other developments Westpoint have built, but I still felt like the most important customer. This made for a very positive buying experience, it’s not hard to see why this development is so popular with almost 50% of properties already sold’ explained Angus.
