Launch for 19 shared ownership sites
BROMFORD Homes is starting 2013 with a bumper programme of
shared ownership sites that will help to meet pent-up demand from
The next few months will see the launch of 19 new
developments offering an affordable range of two and three-bedroom
houses across the West Midlands and South West.
They range in size from smaller schemes like St
James Mews in Dudley with just four homes to those like Colliers Green, New Arley, where 20
shared ownership homes are being built.
It adds up to hundreds of new homes in all with prices that
start from as low as around £30,000 for a mimimum 25% share through
Bromford's HomeBuy shared ownership scheme.
Great time to get on property ladder
According to Bromford Homes Sales and Marketing Director Bev
Hall, it's a great time to get on the property ladder. "From Coventry to Cheltenham, Towcester to Tansey Green − we've got
exciting opportunities for first-time buyers across central
England," says Bev.
"We know that many people want to leave behind the uncertainties
of private rented housing and take their first step on the property
ladder. And we know how hard − or even impossible − it is for many
first-time buyers to save the big deposits that lenders
"The great news is that shared ownership can make your home
ownership dream come true − and for much less than you might think.
In most cases, it's cheaper than renting privately. So my advice to
first-time buyers is to give us a call and find out more. You'll be
pleasantly surprised how affordable shared ownership can be."
Deposit as low as £1,532
Bev points to one example − The Alders in Woverhampton,
where you can buy a minumum 25% share for £30,625* and your deposit
could be as little as £1,532.
"That's a fraction of what it would cost to buy outright," Bev
tells local first-time buyers. "We work with you to decide how much
you can afford to buy − from 25% up to 75% − and you pay rent on
the remaining share. It's as easy as that."
*This example is based on a property price of £122,500. A
minimum 25 per cent share would cost £30,625 and a five per cent
deposit on that would be £1,532. There are three more Bromford
homes at The Alders − one priced at £127,500 (or £31,875 for 25%)
and two houses at £130,000 (or £32,500 for 25%).
