Residential property developer Miller Homes has announced plans to develop close to 1,000 new homes in Glasgow over the next decade, in an attempt to meet growing demand for properties in the city.
With two universities, plenty of bars, restaurants, shops, attractions and a whole redevelopment at the Waterfront in progress, Scotland's fourth largest city has a lot going for it. House-hunters looking to find a new home in Dundee will find the new-build housing market just as bustling at the city itself, with a great variety of properties currently on the market.
The latest National New Homes Survey from the Home Builders Federation (NHF) and National House Building Council (NHBC) shows some exceptional customer service ratings for UK's housebuilders. Some 91% of respondents said they were satisfied or very satisfied with the housebuilder and the same proportion would recommend their housebuilder to a friend.
Over 29,000 people who had purchased a new-build home completed the survey and the results are a slight improvement on the 2012 survey where 90% of those surveyed expressed the same feelings towards their house purchase.
Figures from Miller Homes, which has been building award-winning homes for more than 75 years, suggest that house-hunting was one of the most popular activities over the festive season. Visitors to the company's website between Christmas and New Year were up by more than 150% on monthly averages - peaking on 1st January - and most were first time visitors, exploring opportunities in the new-build property market for 2013.
House-hunters looking to find a new home in Dundee are a lucky bunch. Despite being Scotland's fourth largest city, Dundee is small enough that you're never far from the city centre. Add that to the fact that the River Tay and surrounding countryside provide some enviable views and places to get away from it all and you really do have the best of both worlds. A number of housebuilders have new developments in the city, with something to suits families and budgets of all shapes and sizes.
National housebuilder Miller Homes has announced its plans to bring 380 new homes to the East Midlands region in 2013. With a number of active developments already underway in the region, the company is reinforcing its presence there by unveiling more employment opportunities as well as a wide range of new homes in Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.
The plans entail the construction of the following new developments:
Miller Homes is now taking reservations for the third and final phase of its very successful luxury development at Graysmill, Craiglockhart, Edinburgh. The development offers eight five- and six-bedroom detached family villas in four styles, the ‘Adam', the ‘Lorimar', the award-winning ‘Playfair' and the ‘Mackintosh'. As the last of the three phases, the houses for sale at Graysmill Dell benefit from refinements based on feedback from earlier customers.
Construction has now begun on the new Winchburgh Development near Edinburgh. Valued at an estimated £1 billion and spanning around 900 acres of land, the West Lothian development is expected to add a further 8,000 people to the current population of Winchburgh, making it the sixth largest town in the county.
Initial planning consent has been given for Barratt Homes and Miller Homes to build a wide selection of new homes in Winchburgh near Edinburgh, as part of a major mixed-use project.
Development on the first 177 new homes is scheduled to start in August, subject to detailed planning consent being awarded by West Lothian Council.
