Sharing HomeBuy secrets at Fortuna open day

FIRST-TIME BUYERS are being offered a warm welcome and a chance to find out how − like scores of other delighted shared ownership buyers at Fortuna − they can unlock the home of their dreams for as little as £31,250* in the Capital of the Cotswolds.

The offer comes with an invitation to attend a special open day on Saturday (April 6) and Sunday at the Silver Street office of leading Cirencester estate agents Perry Bishop & Chambers from 11am to 4pm.

First-time buyers can find out more about our successful Fortuna development in Cirencester, where sales are now well over the milestone 70 mark − and more about how Homebuy shared ownership works. Visitors can also explore our family-friendly showhome off Buncombe Way, Kingshill Meadow, which will be open as usual from 11am to 4pm all weekend as well as Monday.

"If you want to get on the property ladder − especially in a high-price part of Gloucestershire like Cirencester − there's no better way than with shared ownership here at Fortuna," says Bromford Homes Head of Sales (South) Trish Foster.

"HomeBuy shared ownership is probably the most affordable way for buyers to realise their dream of home ownership − and yet it's still one of the property world's best-kept secrets.

"That's why we decided to hold this special open day so that first-time buyers from the Cirencester area can come along and find out more while taking the chance to see how much they get in the way of space, features and attention to detail for their money.

"We'll be here to explain how shared ownership works and how easily it can unlock the door to the home of your dreams for the same or even less than it costs to rent privately."

Rolling out the welcome mat at Perry Bishop & Chambers on Saturday is Bromford Homes Sales Consultant Kirsty Derby, who's completed more shared ownership sales at Fortuna since they hit the 70 milestone in January.

"We'll be here from 11am until 4pm and really look forward to meeting anyone from the Cirencester area who wants to come along and find out more about how truly affordable it is to get a great new home," says Kirsty.

"Customers who've already bought here love the homes, they love the location and they love the prices. With shared ownership, you can buy a surprisingly spacious three-bed home here for as little as £57,000** − with a deposit that could be a low as £2,850.

"We do everything we can to make sure that the HomeBuy deal is truly affordable for buyers − whether they are buying a 25% share or anything up to the 75% maximum. At the end of the day, buyers get a traditionally-built, energy-efficient home built for ease of maintenance at a really affordable price."
