First part-buy reservations at Colliers Green
ASPIRING homeowners are starting to snap up our affordable
houses at Colliers Green, just north of
We've now signed up the first two shared ownership
reservations at Ransome Road, New Arley − and other would-be
buyers are reminded to be quick if they want their pick of the
Just 12 of these two and three-bed homes are being sold through
our popular part-buy, part-rent scheme − also known as shared
ownership − and another eight houses through our equity loan offer.
Bromford Homes Head of Sales Alan Bradley describes the choice
of TWO great ways to buy as a really rare opportunity for
first-time buyers and other would-be home-owners who can't afford
open market prices.
"It's unusual for an affordable housing developer like Bromford
to offer a choice of shared ownership AND equity loans on the same
site," says Alan.
"Both are really affordable options for would-be buyers who feel
locked out of the property market and are probably renting from
private landlords − part of what's now known as Generation Rent −
or living at home with their folks.
"The fact that we are marketing both options means we can sit
down together with customers, discuss the various pros and cons and
reach a decision on the best route for each buyer.
"We're delighted that two local buyers have reserved shared
ownership homes and expect more reservations very soon − as
well as the first few sales through our great HelpUbuy equity loan
"So I would urge first-time buyers across Coventry and
Warwickshire to be quick off the mark if they want their pick of
the plots of plots here at Colliers Green (pictured below). I
recommend you to give us a call on 0845 60 10878

HelpUbuy equity loan allows you to
buy your new Bromford home for just 80% of its purchase price − in
the case of Colliers Green, around £98,000*** for a two-bed home
with a full market value of £122,500. You simply pay 5% deposit
which in this example is 5% of £98,000 − plus the monthly mortgage
payments on what you borrow − and no interest on the other 20% for
up to five years and no rent either.
With shared ownership, you buy between
between 25% and 75% of your new Bromford home − the amount depends
on what you can afford − and pay low rent on the remaining share.
In the case of Colliers Green, it costs as little as £30,625* for a
minimum 25% share of two-bed house or £34,250** for a three-bed
Crucially for most first-time buyers, the deposits in both cases
are much cheaper than if you buy outright − as little as £1,532*
for shared ownership and as low as £4,900*** for the equity loan
