  • Poor qulaity Persimmon Show Home

    A friend went to view a Persimmon show home in the North East last weekend. Their reaction was "YiKES!"

    Even though they weren't actually looking for problems, they noted at least 10 different snags in the ten minutes it took them to look round.
    They said:
    "Bear in mind the house in question sells for a minimum of 280,000 and surely the show home should be absolutely perfect to encourage sales and convince buyers they're selling quality homes."

    They saw cracks in the plaster, a handle broken off the dishwasher, dishes in the sink and used teabags in the cupboards! In addition, there was a worrying buzzing noise coming from the electric fuse panel.

    As they said:
    "If they can't even be bothered to do the show homes properly what are the actual homes going to be like?"

    Usually, the show homes are "pristine" and regularly inspected to ensure they are the best that can be done.
    Clearly no one at Persimmon can be bothered to build a top quality show house and inspect it when it is to their company's benefit.
    Just how bad are the homes it builds for their customers on this site going to be?

    Remember, these were the things you could still see, what about everything else that had been covered up?
    No wonder Persimmon is the only major home builder to be rated just 4 stars - every other major house builder has 5 stars.

    I suspect "dishes in the sink" and "used teabags in the cupboards" are the responsibility of the sales rep, not the builders.

      I would concur, but it demonstrates how little they actually care.
      Not even thinking about presenting their badly built show home in the best possible light.
      And the sales Advisors are the ones trying to sell them!
