The Elan show home at Kinnerton Meadows will be closed over one of the busiest times for property searches

PROPERTY searches peak on Boxing Day but act now and you could box off a move to a new home in Flintshire sooner rather than later.

Housing industry figures show that the period between Christmas and New Year has become one of THE busiest times for people to search for property.

Elan Homes, currently selling homes at Kinnerton Meadows in Higher Kinnerton, saw a 45% increase in visitors to its website on Boxing Day 2018 compared with November 26 that year. The homebuilder also reports that web traffic on December 26, 2018 was 70% higher than the same date in 2017.

Buyers may therefore be surprised to learn that Elan will close the Kinnerton Meadows development from December 23 through to January 2, giving their staff a well-earned break.

But with the final phase of the popular development now on sale, Elan is encouraging buyers to act now to beat the post-Christmas rush.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “Traditionally pre-Christmas is a quieter time for the property market, but we want to shake things up and help get people moving sooner rather than later. We would recommend anyone hoping to move in 2020 starts their search now to beat the rush.

“The increase in visitors to our website between Christmas and New Year correlates with a surge in visitors to our developments in January. We could open our show homes between the festivities, but choose not to so that our sales teams can spend quality time with loved ones.”

The final phase of Kinnerton Meadows includes a choice of four and five-bedroom detached homes, with prices from £304,995 to £459,995.

Situated in Kinnerton Lane, the village location has played a part in the success of the development. Buyers love the best of both worlds appeal of living in rural Flintshire, while also having easy access to Mold, Wrexham and Chester.

To be in with a chance of moving to one of the homes in the final phase of Kinnerton Meadows, visit the development, open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. For the latest availability and pricing call 01352837962.

The development will be closed from December 23 through to January 2, but during that time, potential purchasers can find out more about homes via the website
