Off-plan property sales in Bedfordshire are proving popular once more, according to new homes developer David Wilson South Midlands, following the recent sales success it has enjoyed at two of its newest new home developments in the area.

New home development schemes, The Maythornes in Biggleswade and Pilgrims Rest in Kempston, were both launched in November 2009 and both have opened to an influx of enquires from interested purchasers keen to be among the first to secure a new build home at these projects.

And despite the fact that the new homes will not be available to move in to until the Spring, this has not deterred househunters' decision to buy there and many have in fact, been keen to buy early in order to make the most of the benefits that come with buying a new home during the off-plan stage of construction.

Jackie Day, sales director at David Wilson, comments: "It is usual practice for developers to sell the first homes on any development off-plan at the lowest prices to encourage sales and get an early return on investment, so it comes as no surprise that purchasers at these two new developments have been quick to recognise the advantages that come with buying a home prior to construction.

"What's more, buying off-plan offers a number of other advantages not least the opportunity to stamp your own personal design preferences on your new home as well as securing the new build home you want on your preferred plot."

The Maythornes is located on Potton Road in Biggleswade and features a selection of two-, three- and five-bedroom homes. Prices start from £144,995.

Pilgrim's Rest on Cemetery Road in Kempston comprises a range of four-bedroom family homes. Prices here start from £249,995.
