Jewellery Quarter a perfect location for first-time buyers
First-time buyers who think that they can’t afford their dream home in Birmingham are being offered a solution by local housebuilder Morris Homes.
According to new research, high on the wish list for first-time buyers when looking for a home is a great location, good local amenities and access to open space.
With many first-time buyers struggling to save the deposit needed to bag their ideal home, Morris offers the Government-led FirstBuy scheme on its stylish city centre apartments at The Quarter development on Warstone Lane.
Using the scheme, first-time buyers are able to purchase a property for 80 per cent of its market value. This means househunters need a much smaller deposit and will benefit from lower mortgage repayments.
Cindy Vials, regional sales director for Morris, said: “FirstBuy is a cost-effective way for househunters who want an easy commute and a stylish apartment in a prominent area to get on the property ladder.”
Also high on the list for first-time househunters is a high quality property with good links to public transport, and Morris’ elegant city centre apartments tick all these boxes.
The development is in the historic Jewellery Quarter and is just a 15 minute walk from the heart of Birmingham. These prestigious homes are perfect for the first-time buyer that doesn’t want to compromise when purchasing a property.
Cindy added: “The Quarter is an exclusive development within easy reach of Birmingham city centre, and with a nearby train station and an array of bars, restaurants and galleries on the doorstep it is ideal for buyers who want to be part of a bustling community.
“Unlike many city centre developments, The Quarter offers a relaxing oasis with its beautifully landscaped courtyard that features a communal terrace and timber seating.”
Morris currently has a selection of one bed apartments available at The Quarter priced from £99,950 under the FirstBuy scheme. Househunters can now take advantage of longer opening times on Thursdays, when the show homes will be open for viewings until 8pm.
