Be-quick call as Brookfields hits half-gone mark

FIRST-TIME buyers are snapping up our great affordable homes at Brookfields − just five minutes drive from the heart of historic Shrewsbury.

Half of the two-bed shared ownership houses are now reserved, leaving just four more opportunities for local buyers to make their property dream come true for as little as £33,750* and a deposit that could be just £1,688*.

That's enough to buy a minimum 25% share of a new feature-packed home built by our award-winning site manager, Pete Hamon, and his in-house construction team − and, if you reserve now, you could be moved in by early February.

Bromford Homes Head of Sales Alan Bradley says Brookfields is ideal for first-time buyers on lower incomes and other would-be homeowners who can't afford open market prices in this sought-after Shropshire market town.

"Prices like this make all the difference for aspiring home-owners in places like Shrewsbury where property prices are often fairly high and incomes are relatively low for many ordinary people," says Alan. "We know many people still aspire to own their home − and shared ownership can make that dream come true at a price and for a deposit that people can truly afford. The typical monthly cost of shared ownership is cheaper too."

With shared ownership, you buy between 25% and 75% of a new Bromford home rather than buy outright − 40% is an average amount − and pay rent on the remaining share.

"It all adds up to a more affordable − and more secure − alternative to private renting for people who can't afford to buy on the open market or can't tap into the Bank of Mum & Dad for an outright sale deposit that could run into tens of thousands," says Alan.

He urges would-be buyers to "be quick or risk missing out" on the remaining four plots off Bagley Drive as our construction team push towards their first completions.

Site manager Pete (pictured below) took charge here after winning the regional Medium Builder category in the NHBC's Pride in the Job competition for the outstanding quality of his work managing another Bromford Homes site in Telford. It's the third year in a row that Pete has picked up some kind of Pride in the Job award while working for Bromford and he's brought that same special "X-factor" to Brookfields.

Alan says: "It's great to know that we've got such an exceptional site manager making sure that that we maintain high-quality workmanship at every stage of the build. Great build quality and first-rate customer service come as standard with every Bromford home − and you also get a lot of features as standard that would normally come as extras elsewhere. Add the benefits of shared ownership and you'll see that's why we say you can't buy better than a Bromford home."

* £33,750 would buy a minimum 25% share of a two-bed house at Brookfields with a full market value of £135,000. A deposit of £1,688 assumes a 95% mortgage on that minimum share.
