The Art of Negotiation


For the most, at Christmas, a list of presents to pick up for friends and family is of primary concern. However, of recent, many are opting to decide on their next property as property discounts are in actual fact, more available than you think.

Karrina Oki, Sales & Marketing Director at Pentland Homes comments; “At this time of year, people think that moving to a new home for Christmas is out of the question, but in reality, it can be done if they are organised with the buying process. The proximity to the end of the year means sales agents and developers are often working extra hard to meet end of year targets and get deals done before Christmas, meaning more incentives are available to buyers.”

“If you can’t secure a discount off the asking price, look to see what else they can offer to sweeten the deal - think furniture packages, stamp duty contributions or season pass tickets for your commute. We offer part-exchange on our new homes, which are very popular, especially as we approach Christmas. One of the benefits of Part Exchange is the knowledge that they can stay in their current property until their new home is ready, so no need to stress about periods in between selling their home and moving into their new one. At this time of year especially, it’s one less thing to worry about.”

Pentland Homes, the developer of Berberis Place in Shadoxhurst, Kent, is offering buyers in a chain the option to part exchange their current property to speed up the house moving process. There are three properties remaining at Berberis Place, with a three-bedroom detached house starting at £450,000. Berberis Place is a small, boutique development of just twelve luxury 2, 3 and 4-bedroom homes in Shadoxhurst, in the Kent Weald. The village of Shadoxhurst is locally known as “the woodland gateway to the countryside” and is surrounded by ancient woodlands and attractive rural farmland.
