"Great prices for great homes" at Northfield
PRICES are confirmed for Bromford Homes' latest shared ownership
development in Birmingham.
This means local first-time buyers can get on the property

two-bed Frankley semi − with the deposit as low as £1,500. And
prices for a two-bed end-of-terrace Farley home are slightly
higher, starting from £33,125.
Prices for a three-bed terraced Merecroft home start at
£36,250**, with deposits as low as £1,813, and prices for a
three-bed Bartley house start from £34,875.
The official prices are announced as Bromford's award-winning
construction team gear up to start building a total of four
three-bed and eight two-bed homes on the former pub site next
Completion is scheduled for summer 2013 and Bromford Homes Head
of Sales Alan Bradley urges local first-time buyers to act quickly
if they want to reserve a particular plot.
Realise the dream
"A reservation costs just £500 and I would say to anyone who's
wants to get on the property ladder in Northfield that putting down
that money on a new home at The Beeches could be one of the best
investments you'll make," says Alan.
"These are great homes at great prices and our HomeBuy part
buy-part rent offer makes them truly affordable for anyone who
wants to stop renting and realise the dream of home ownership.
"Many people believe that dream is out of their reach but shared
ownership really does offer people who couldn't otherwise afford to
buy a chance to get on the property ladder without having to save a
huge deposit or to apply for a hefty mortgage. What's more, it

With HomeBuy, customers purchase between 25% and 75% of their
new home and pay a low rent on the remaining share.
"We do everything we can to make sure that the deal is truly
affordable for buyers − whether they are buying a 25 per cent share
or anything up to the 75 per cent maximum," says Alan.
Really affordable prices
"At the end of the day, buyers at The Beeches will get a
traditionally-built, energy-efficient home built for ease of
maintenance at a really affordable price.
"What's more, our price includes a lot of features that buyers
might have to pay for as extras elsewhere. Things like turfed front
and back gardens, full screen fencing, and quality kitchens."
The contemporary-looking brick homes will take shape on a corner
plot where Merritt's Brook Lane meets Basil Road on the Frankley
reservoir side of Northfield in south Birmingham.
It's a family-friendly spot, with a good choice of local primary
schools and local shops on the other side of Merritt's Brook Lane.
Northfield Health Centre and a Sainsbury's supermarket are little
more than half a mile way and Northfield centre roughly a mile. To
