Leading Property Developer St George is thrilled to have been awarded Best Developer Website, at the recent Daily Mail UK Property Awards, for its Parkwest development, in West Drayton, Middlesex.
For the traditional purchaser, the Internet may feel like an unusual place to start house hunting, but for the modern purchaser it can often be the starting point of their search for the perfect home. Leading property developers St George have looked at this sea of change in purchasing and have recognised the importance of having a dedicated website for each development and the need to offer informative and well presented sites on-line, providing up to date information, brochure floor plans, current prices, availability and even a virtual tour of the show apartment.
The Parkwest site, which can be found at http://www.park-west.co.uk/, provides visitors with the opportunity to view and search for information in the easiest and quickest way. The homepage provides direct links to register for more details, download the brochure, or watch one of the Parkwest movies. The site is full of fresh and up to date information on the development as well as the history of the scheme, location maps and a site plan.
The rapid growth of the Internet over the last 10 years has forever changed the way people buy and sell residential property. In the UK around 80% of house hunters now use the Web to start their search for property. In fact, according to traffic statistics expert Hitwise, around 1% of ALL internet traffic in the UK is property-related. Altogether, the top five property portals entertain 16+ million user sessions per month. These figures serve to show how enormously popular online property searches have become, but are users searching effectively?
Managing Director of St George West London Ian Dobie stated, "We are delighted at the amount of traffic we have had to each of our websites and it is clear to me that purchasers are looking at developers who go that little bit further in all aspects from building quality, customer service and of course the ease in which they can receive sales information. We pride ourselves on offering clear, concise and informative websites and innovative ways to help our customers.
With over 75,000 visitors to the St George West London websites in the last year alone, it is clear to see that the taboo of looking for a property on-line is well and truly on the decline, and with that in mind, perhaps it is time to let our fingers do the walking.
Parkwest is in a superb location for commuters, students, and international travellers alike. The M4 and M25 are just a couple of miles away, as is Heathrow -The World's Busiest Airport. Stockley Park, Europe's largest commercial centre, which houses companies such as Apple UK, BT, Cisco, Marks and Spencer, Sharp and Hasbro is only a few minutes away and benefits from a Virgin Active Gym and an 18 hole golf course.
