Last few left at fast-selling Arden Fields
FIRST-TIME buyers are saying a huge YES to affordable home
ownership at Arden Fields − close to the
heart of historic Knowle.
They've reserved all seven of the available two and three-bed
village homes since shared ownership prices were confirmed barely a
month ago. That leaves just two one-bed apartments up for
grabs − and they could be yours for as little as £72,000*
through our popular part-buy, part-rent deal.
Bromford Homes Head of Sales Alan Bradley urges other would-be
homebuyers to be quick or miss out on this low-cost chance to get
onto the Knowle property ladder.
"We thought that local first-time buyers would grab this truly
affordable opportunity to make their homebuying dreams come
true − and we were right," says Alan.
"The numbers say it all. Seven homes reserved in a matter of
weeks and I'm sure it won't be long before the last few homes are
snapped up too.
"Knowle is a very desirable place to live and this is reflected
in the asking prices for all kinds of local houses and apartments.
As a result, most first-time buyers on ordinary incomes are quite
simply priced out.
"Our houses and apartments are built to the same high quality as
the open-market homes that Miller is building alongside them, and
they come with all the mod cons, other features and contemporary
room layouts that people want these days.
"The big difference is the cost. With shared ownership, you
commit to a relatively small mortgage and therefore have to find a
much smaller deposit. It's a truly affordable alternative to
private renting or living at home with your family."
The first homes are likely to be finished by mid December −
and it's possible that the first shared ownership buyers will be
moving in before Christmas. Our part-buy prices start from just
£72,000* for a typical 45% share of a one-bed apartment at Arden
House and just £126,000** for a family-sized three-bed. A
typical deposit for the apartment is just £3,600*.
"We're delighted with the enthusiastic reaction to Arden Fields
and look forward to handing over the first set of house keys in
time for buyers to celebrate the festive season in their great new
homes," says Alan.
"Looking ahead to the new year, the good news for any buyers
who've missed out on this first wave of affordable homes is the
fact that we've got four more three-beds due for completion in the
early summer. If you're interested, my advice would be to call us
now and find out how you can qualify because when they're gone,
