Open house for Cirencester 1st-time buyers

FIRST-TIME buyers who live or work in Cirencester are invited to join us for a special open house at Akeman Court.

We're rolling out the welcome mat on Saturday, March 21, so that you can get a feel for what it would be like to live in one of these top-quality two-bed apartments that come loaded with mod cons and other great features.

It's also a free, friendly and informative chance to find out how one of them could be yours for as little as £129,600.

The secret of these low prices? It's our popular equity loan scheme that means you can own 100% of your new home with a 5% deposit of just £8,100 plus a 75% mortgage.

Interested? You can find out more when the doors open at 11am on March 21 and Bromford Homes Area Sales Consultant, Kirsty Darby, encourages aspiring homeowners to drop in at any time before 3pm.

"Akeman Court is a terrific development that offers just seven buyers a truly affordable chance to get on the property ladder right here in the heart of Cirencester, close to local shops, cafes, bars and schools," says Kirsty.

"It's ideal for local couples and singletons who want to get on to the property ladder and maybe leave behind the uncertainties of living in a private rented home or living with their mum and dad.

"Equity loan can make the dream of home ownership a reality at a price that ordinary working people can afford and we're giving priority to people who live or work here in the Capital of the Cotswolds.

"My advice to anyone who's got the 5% deposit is to join us for the open day and find out how you can get on the property ladder here for a fraction of what it would cost on the open market."

Help to Buy equity loan allows you to buy your new Bromford home for just 80% of its purchase price − in the case of Akeman Court (pictured above) from £129,600* for a two-bed apartment with a full market value of £162,000.

You simply pay 5% deposit, or £8,100 − plus the monthly mortgage payments on what you borrow − with no interest on the other 20% for up to five years and no rent either.

"Crucially, for most first-time buyers, the deposits are much cheaper than if you buy outright. This makes a big difference for first-time buyers in a sought-after place like Cirencester where property prices are high and salaries relatively low," says Kirsty.

"The first few homes will be ready shortly so you could be living in your own home much sooner − and for much less − than you thought."
