Housing leads the mayoral debate

On Tuesday night, a couple of lucky people from Pocket were in the front row for a debate by the London mayoral candidates entirely devoted to the subject of housing in the Capital. Mayoral hopeful Sadiq Khan launched his campaign by saying that the election in May was going to be “a referendum on housing” and from the level of engagement on Tuesday night – he was right. It was mentioned that previous Mayoral elections have been centred around the key issue of transport or policing and this vote will be defined by the candidate that reassures the electorate that they will make an impact on the housing crisis.

Home sweet Pumpkin – fully booked for 1st phase viewings at Western Road UB2  

1st phase viewings at Western Road UB2 fully booked

Becoming a homeowner means all sorts of things – one of which is having your very own front door to showcase your pumpkin-carving skills.  It so happens that tomorrow, Saturday 31st October 2015, is Halloween, and we have invited nearly 30 potential buyers for our latest development in Western Road UB2, Southall, to visit our Camden show flat.  We have back-to-back appointments, and while the launch has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween (although we may have some spooky sweets to keep our sales team and their visitors going through the busy day), it could mean that the 1st phase of Western Road UB2, sells out before the trick or treating starts!

Pocket’s out & about this autumn!

There is a huge need for affordable housing in London.  The young, hardworking Londoners who make our city tick cannot live near where they work. City makers are keen to save up and get on the housing ladder but costs and prices are just rising year on year and wages aren’t keeping pace. But Pocket has a great solution: our homes are close to transport links, sold with at least a 20% discount to market and are 100% owner-owned.

Our newest development Western Road UB2 (pictured above) is launching for sale this month and consists of 36 one bedroom Pocket homes in Southall, in the borough of Ealing. With their hefty discount, cleverly designed interiors and generous communal gardens they are going to sell fast… so we are out and about this autumn spreading the word and making sure as many city makers as possible have the opportunity to buy these Pocket homes.  We’re launching more schemes across London later in the year and into 2016, so even if Ealing isn’t your area, come and say hello!
