Jones Homes and Rightmove identify Wilmslow as property hotspot

Promotional Feature

Wilmslow has emerged as a property hotspot since the housing market reopened, according a Rightmove report.

Jones Homes has seen a surge in demand for homes in Wilmslow since reopening for appointments earlier this month.

Now Rightmove has named Wilmslow as the fourth most popular place in the UK among people searching for a home, with buyer demand up 63 per cent compared with March.

Gemma Pownall, Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes North West, said: "Properties in Wilmslow have always held strong appeal. As people reconsider their lifestyles post-lockdown, it is easy to see why this picturesque town with a thriving independent retail scene and strong transport links would be so high on their wish lists.

"We have certainly seen a high level of interest since housing sales resumed, with enquiries and bookings for personal appointments coming to our sales teams and via Rightmove.

"Our customers have told us that they are especially keen to find a new home in Wilmslow. They want to be the first occupants and for everything to be new, modern and completed to the highest standards."

Eight of Rightmove's top 10 search locations were in the North of England, with Bolton also featuring.

Jones Homes currently has two developments in Wilmslow. At Bollin Park, off Adlington Road, just a few of Signature Collection luxury detached homes remain for sale following a number of recent reservations.

Sanctuary Wilmslow by Jones Homes launched as a new concept in active living for over 55s. It recently welcomed its first residents and more will follow in the coming weeks and months.

Gemma Pownall said: "Sanctuary Wilmslow offers a much broader range of homes than most age-exclusive developments, with cottages available as well as apartments.

"For many of our recent visitors, being able to have a garden of their own has been important. Others favour apartment living with green space on their doorstep in the adjoining wood and parkland.

"Whichever they prefer, buyers now have a clear focus on their priorities. Location will always be high on this list and Wilmslow's popularity never diminishes."
