Last chance to make dream come true at Farthings

TELFORD homebuyers have one final chance to follow in the footsteps of our showcase customers Jo Doody and Ellie Buttery and get on the property ladder at The Farthings.

We've got just one two-bed shared ownership home left for sale with an asking price of £29,375* at this popular development built by our award-winning in-house construction team off Holyhead Road, Ketley.

It's particularly popular with one local family as cousins Jo Doody and Ellie Buttery have bought neighbouring homes at The Farthings − and both are keen to recommend the high-quality homes and Bromford to other first-time buyers.

"We're really happy with the quality of the build and how helpful the Bromford team have been all the way through the homebuying process," says sales and marketing co-ordinator Jo, who bought her three-bedroom house at The Farthings with partner Darren Hack through Bromford's HomeBuy shared ownership scheme.

Recommend Homebuy and Bromford

"Shared ownership was the only way we were able to get on the property ladder. I would recommend it − and Bromford − every time to anyone who, like us, struggles to become a first-time buyer."

Ellie is equally enthusiastic. "My partner Jim and I didn't waste much time after seeing Joanne's home! We thought it was really spacious and finished to a great standard. The value for money is fantastic," says the 26-year-old library assistant, who's on maternity leave with ten-month-old daughter Ivy.

Both couples were living in rented homes before and wanted to realise their property-owning dreams but struggled with the high deposits and home loans needed for traditional outright purchase. They found the ideal solution with shared ownership, which means buying between 25% and 75% of a new home and paying low rent on the remaining share.

The couples' enthusiasm for shared ownership doesn't surprise Bromford Homes Head of Sales Alan Bradley, who points to The Farthings as a prime example of HomeBuy's success − it's possible to buy that last two-bed home for as little as £29,375* and a deposit could be just under £1,500.

Your dream can come true

"With house prices strong and mortgage lending much tighter than it used to be, renting can seem like the only option for many first-time buyers and affording a home of your own seem like an impossible dream," says Alan.

"The good news is the dream can come true thanks to shared ownership − and we've got just one home left on the market here at The Farthings. It's a great way for people to get into the home-buying market and need not cost more each month than renting from a private landlord."

* This example is based on a property price of £117,500. A 25 per cent share would cost £29,375 and a five per cent deposit on that would be £1,469.
