New commuter link is just the ticket for home buyers

With two new tram stops soon to open, city centre workers now have even more reasons to move to a new Redrow home in North Manchester.

The competitive prices, low deposits and quality specification make the homes in Moston and Harpurhey an attractive prospect, particularly for first time buyers and those who don’t want to pay the price of a city centre address.

The neighbourhoods are already well served by public transport and with new Metrolink stations due to open this spring, residents will benefit from improved access to the centre of Manchester.

The new Redrow homes are just a short journey away from the Central Park and Newton Heath & Moston tram stops on the new Metrolink line, which will offer frequent services to and from the city.

Julie Harper, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), commented: “Living in the heart of the city comes at a premium and it may be that once you’ve paid your rent or mortgage you don’t have the funds to appreciate the benefits of the location. Our new homes in Moston and Harpurhey offer a viable alternative that could actually save you money while still enjoying easy access to the buzzing nightlife and fashionable shops in the centre of Manchester.”

“According to the average price of a two-bedroom home in the M1 area of the city is around £188,000 but with our easi:buy scheme you could snap up a home of your own only four miles away for just £78,746.”

Redrow is currently building two, three and four-bedroom homes at Hanson Gardens, off Lightbowne Road and Kenyon Gardens, in Kenyon Lane, in Moston and at Woodville Gardens, off Moston Lane, in Harpurhey.

Every home is offered with the potential to defer 25% of the initial purchase price for up to 10 years through a shared equity scheme administered by Manchester City Council.

Customers may only need a 5% deposit, which could be as little as £3,938 to secure a home.

Traditional on the outside, the homes sit comfortably next to existing properties in the area, but with interiors designed to meet the demands of modern living. Well insulated, with double glazing and central heating included as standard, they should be cheaper to run than their second hand counterparts.

“The success of our developments in Moston is due to a combination of the quality of the homes, low prices and the help of our easi:buy scheme,” Julie added. “With the opening of the new tram stops we hope to see an increased level of interest in the homes as city centre workers start to think about the benefits of commuting.”
