Place was quite busy with people checking out the apartments. Lovely apartments they are too. Would be curious to know how well they sold or whether people were visiting out of curiosity only.

As for phase 1, any word on a closing date? I’ve been told next few weeks but nothing concrete given yet.

Went to open house today and they said there was one duplex left and two apartments, not sure about houses. There was a good few people around. EA said that they sold a lot last weekend.

No word on when our place is expected to be ready for snagging, still have not done the road in front of our house so that could hold it up

Was just about to post when I saw the above post. I was over there today and was told there's 3 duplexs left and 2 apartments. Thankfully we got an apartment last week and delighted we did so as they're a nice finish and lovely location. Never asked about the houses though.

Small crowd today compared to last Saturday but they had long queues then, which is why they put all the apartments and duplexs on sale instead of the planned 10 of each according to what I was told. Apartments and duplexs are due for completion in Sept/Oct and December but never asked about houses.

We got a letter last week from DRes saying estimated completion is September for our place on the Avenue.

Our letter said August and we have been told today that we can arrange snagging from next week.

How did snagging go? We got our letter to say October so they’re clearly spacing out the dates quite a bit. Can I ask what road you’re going to be on?

It’s been about three weeks since the snag, I’m hoping they move things along now as we had been expecting to close this month, but at the same time I’m hoping the delay is down to them addressing everything.

I’m also curious to know peoples views on painting the interior of new house. I assume we have only been given base coats. On one hand, it was would handy to get some rooms painted before floor and furniture go in, on the other I know that some people recommend not panting for a few months to let the house settle.

Were there any big items on the snag list?

I’m not planning on painting although like you I realize it’s probably easier to do without furniture / flooring. It’s in part to allow the place to settle but also to live there and see what colors work in the space before we commit to painting it all.

Of course, a lot of decisions will also come down to the financial aspect - won’t be able to do things for a while until we build the reserves back up!

Drove past today and the fencing is down from the end of the Crescent so took a walk around and it’s progressing well. A few people moving in by the looks of it! Mine is still fenced off but positive - all look to be finished to a high standard on the outsides.

Anyone else can’t wait to get the go ahead for snagging?!

Its getting close now!

I can see some people are getting floors in and are moving in furniture already.

We were told September but not been called for snag yet. As our house does not have a driveway i guess we have another while to wait

Yeah saw people bringing in stuff into some of the houses over the weekend so some of the houses are ready to go and they'll be more ready over the next week or two so progress is ongoing.

There's no word on the apartments or duplexs as from what was originally an October date is now going to be November at least but as nothing is confirmed, that's just a hunch.

I was hoping October meant start of the month, but fear it’s the end now. Hopefully will be in by holloween - if only so we don’t push into November ourselves.

Fingers crossed your snag happens soon! Let us know if you don’t mind, will give a good guide as to progress.

@Chinguetta - are you moving into the apartments? It looked like they were progressing fast then all of a sudden feels like it’s slowed down. Maybe just all moved inside?

Yes, we're moving into one of the apartments. Got the letter the other day to say October but it looks likes end of the month for snagging so probably November to be actually in it. Work is definitely going on outside with parking spots and lights so I'm guessing work is going inside too. Well I hope it is!!

We were initially meant to be September but the delay was when they sold all the duplexs and apartments on the one day due to demand. We're in the October group and the rest is in the December group. Where the divide is, I don't know. Now if we could just figure out the tiles to go with the couch

Drove past today and looks like the apartments nearest the dart are done outside - all the work is the other end. Hopefully that means October on track.

Can’t wait to be in and start personalizing the place ourselves! We actually went and bought the same kitchen table and chairs as the show House... easy when you know it works! Still need to figure out the rest. Trying to decide on flooring, will likely have to live with concrete underfoot for a while until we make up our minds!
