Hitting a high at Regis Heights
FIRST-TIME buyers are showing keen interest in a Rowley Regis
housing development where they can seal the deal on a new home for
as little as £30,000.
Two-thirds of the houses at Regis Heights have already been spoken
for, with at least one reservation confirmed, leaving just four up
for sale through HomeBuy shared ownership.
That's why Bromford Homes Head of Sales Alan Bradley
urges would-be buyers to be quick − or risk missing out on what he
describes as a great opportunity to get on to the local property
"Construction work has got to that really exciting stage. The
builders are making great progress and we look forward to seeing
the first completions very soon," said Alan, pointing to the hive
of on-site activity off Carnegie Road, Rowley Regis.
"Our first buyers should be able to move in well before
Christmas and I would urge anyone who's interested to avoid delay
or they risk being disappointed.
"This really is a great opportunity for first-time buyers to get
on the local property ladder.
"They're great homes at great prices and, with shared ownership,
you can become a proud property owner for as little as £30,000.
That's enough to buy a 25% share of a two-bed semi-detached
"One thing that concerns a lot of first-time buyers is the
amount of deposit they have to save for a traditional outright sale
− even if they could in theory afford the mortgage payments.
"With shared ownership, the deposit here at Regis Heights would
be as little as £1,500. That makes buying really affordable for
anyone who struggles to save but can still afford to buy."
Of the 13 homes offered for shared ownership, just three
two-beds and a single three-bed house remain unsold.
All homes come with a complete fitted kitchen, including oven,
hob and extractor, french doors leading to the rear garden, full
gas-fired central heating, double glazing and high-performance
insulation throughout. Front and rear gardens are turfed, there are
allocated parking spaces and the homes come with a 10-year NHBC new home
The development includes plenty of open space, including a play
area for children, and Alan describes it as family-friendly.
He's equally enthusiastic about the commuter-friendly location.
It's a short walk from the lively Rowley Regis town centre and only
two miles from junction two of the M5 − and from there the rest of
the West Midlands motorway network.
Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Walsall, and West Bromwich are all a
short drive away. You can also get around by rail from the nearby
Rowley Regis station. It's less than a mile way.
