Rugby open day kicks off Oaklands sales
THE DREAM of home ownership is coming true for eager first-time
buyers who joined us for a special Bromford Homes open day in
The Saturday session was a big success with would-be homeowners
who couldn't afford to buy on the open market and wanted to quiz us
about our Help to Buy shared ownership deal.
Four first-time buyers decided to say "yes" and reserve one of
the high-quality part buy-part rent houses being built at our
Oaklands development on the northern side of
Rugby for prices that start from £33,750* and deposits that could
be as little at £1,688.
The drop-in day at Connells estate agents highlighted the
affordability and flexibility of the Help to Buy offer, says
Bromford Homes Head of Sales (North) Alan Bradley, and more
off-plan sales look likely.
"First-time buyers in Rugby voted with their feet on Saturday by
coming along to our open day and finding out how they can get on to
the property ladder at a price they can truly afford," says
"Shared ownership has made the homebuying dream come true for
hundreds of people who couldn't afford the huge deposits and
monthly payments that come with buying on the open market. Instead
of buying outright, you buy between 25% and 75% of your new
Bromford home and pay low rent on the remaining share."
Bromford's Oaklands development of two and three-bed homes on
the northern side of Rugby is a prime example, he adds, with prices
starting from £33,750* and deposits that could be as little as
£1,688. That's enough to buy a minimum 25% share of a two-bed Sanderling house at Crackthorn
"Where in Warwickshire can you get a better deal than that?
Prices like that make all the difference for first-time buyers who
can't afford to buy on the open market − especially in a
popular area like Rugby where property prices are relatively high
and average earnings struggle to keep up," says Alan.
"We're delighted that the first four shared ownership homes at
Oaklands have been snapped up − and, judging by the really
positive response we've had from other first-time buyers, it surely
won't be long before we see more reservations. My message to other
would-be homebuyers in Rugby is to call us now and find out how you
too can make your dream come true."
