Hagan Homes will begin a phased re-opening of its showhomes with social distance measures in place

Hagan Homes will reopen showhomes at its new developments around Northern Ireland as of this week (wc 15 June 2020).

In a bid to kick start the property market, the homebuilder will open show homes at its Seventy Six South and Thirty Three South sites in south Belfast. It will also open the doors to its showhomes at Thirty Three North in north Belfast, the Rose Garden in Dunmurry, Ballyveigh in Antrim and Thaxton Village in Lisburn. 

James Hagan, Chair and Founder at Hagan Homes discusses: “When lockdown began there was an approximately £82bn worth of sales locked in the UK property market, showing that prior to the Covid-19 pandemic there was a very hearty appetite among homebuyers.

“Transactions across the sector have naturally been put on hold but that’s not evident of demand for new homes which is why, in accordance with the Executive’s new social safety measures, we have decided to reopen our showhomes so that potential homebuyers can continue to look and buy the home of their dreams.”

Mr Hagan continues: “The public can rest assured that we will have the most stringent social distancing measures in place with their safety in mind the whole time. 

“Viewings will be by appointment only and for those who would rather not visit us in person for whatever reason that may be, we will still offer our virtual viewing service.”

Hagan Homes were among the first homebuilders here to offer a virtual showhome experience to prospective buyers when lockdown was announced, giving them the opportunity to explore sites on a digital 3D viewing platform with a sales agent and engage in a Zoom live chat.

The virtual viewing setup allows homebuyers to interact with the estate agent and ask questions about everything from fixtures and fittings to room sizes, driveway space and gardens at the latter developments which include everything from one and two bed apartments to three bed semi and detached properties.
