As with other people who are writing reviews about George Wimpey, it is my bad experience that is motivating me to write, but I am going to try and be as positive as I can. After my ex destroyed my last house, it left me with a worry that I could move into someone else’s disaster zone, this ... Read review

"...who are writing reviews about George Wimpey, it is my bad experience that is motivating me to write, but I am going to try and be as positive as I can. After my ex destroyed my last house, it left me with a worry that I could move into someone else’s disaster zone, this is what made my mind up that I wanted to move into a brand spanking new home, where I wouldn't have to do anything. It took almost 9 months to find a development that not only ..." Read review

You, Me & George Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesBuild Quality, Price, Discount & Service

DisadvantagesPoor Base Specification - Options Could be Better

"...million pound's worth of brand-spanking-new George Wimpy real-estate. Be warned, there's so much to tell you this is a really long review - but there's a gold star in it for anyone who makes it to the end! WHERE IT ALL STARTED The post Christmas blues seemed to appear this year about the 1st December (26 days earlier than normal!) and I just wasn't happy. I needed something new to focus on, my feet were getting itchy and the guttering needed ..." Read review

Good start but cracks soon start to show

AdvantagesGreat house....eventually, good deal

DisadvantagesVery poor quality finish, flood at 1am on our first night

"...write up my review of George Wimpey homes as the follow up to my Miller homes review (http://www.ciao.co.uk/Miller_Homes__Review_5782302). I'll keep exactly the same layout as the Miller home review to ensure a fair review of each against the same points. So here goes…. ===Buying the house=== It was around July/August of 2006 when my wife and I went out to look for our first home together. We were both set on a new build house and so whenever ..."

George Wimpey new build house

AdvantagesGreat service, excellent choices

DisadvantagesVery hard to find a good mortgage rate on a new build - beware of this!!

"My husband and I are just buying a Wimpey home, but so far have been plagued by obstacles at each turn. We planned to sell our 3 bed end terranced house, but Wimpey offered us a ridiculously low price for their Assisted Movers Scheme, which wouldn't even over our outstanding mortgage of 60%LTV. We have since decided to rent out our property and were able to get a great tracker mortgage from HSBC. We have spent the past 10 years going up our existing ..." Read review

seasoned purchaser

Advantagesreasonably priced, large range to suit all purchasers, good quality

Disadvantagesnot usually much of a discount

"Moved into first Wimpey home (£2000) in 1961 curtesy of my parents. I think they were the first national builder whose prices came within the range of ordinary working class people. They still live in that house -with no problems so Wimpey can't be all that bad! I bought a Wimpey semi, with my new husband in 1971(£4000). They allowed us to alter specification quite a lot in those days and we got discounts for omitting what became useless extras ..." Read review
