We have seen a huge demand for homes year on year with homebuyers loving the fact that a new build is hassle and chain-free, as opposed to the challenges that arise when purchasing pre-existing homes on the market. Due to the high level of demand for such properties, the apartments at Renaissance have been selling extremely well, as purchasers have been impressed the quality of the finishes and the benefits of having allocated parking spaces and balconies to most apartments.
