The first residents are preparing to pick up their keys and open the door to their brand new homes at Taylor Wimpey’s Reflections development of apartments in Romford, Essex.

This April, fast-acting homebuyers will start their new lives at this conveniently situated development of new build apartment for sale in Romford, which benefits from a superb location near the town’s bustling centre for quick rail links to central London in just 17 minutes.

With more stunning one-bedroom apartments at Reflections ready for completion this May –with great-value prices starting at just £136,995 – Essex property-seekers hoping to join the first residents are urged to act now so they can enjoy the early summer sun in a wonderful new home.

Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “With winter now well and truly behind us and the promise of sunny days ahead, there’s no better time to move into a new property in Romford, and this is a very real possibility for quick-off-the-mark home-hunters at Reflections.

“Anyone interested in moving into a new apartment in Essex for summer should visit our Sales and Marketing Suite immediately, and find out more about how we can help to make this a reality.”

Just one of the new homes due to be ready to move into this May at Reflections is the one-bedroom Plot 33 ‘Wave Court’ apartment, priced £136,995. This stylish new home features a spacious open-plan kitchen/dining/living room leading out to a private terrace, plus a generously-proportioned bedroom and a main bathroom.

The fabulous Plot 33 apartment is available to qualifying first-time buyers for 80% of its full price under the FirstBuy scheme – that’s just £109,596, including a 5% deposit of £6,850, subject to status.

FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Taylor Wimpey, which means that eligible purchasers only need put down a 5% deposit and obtain a 75% loan-to-value mortgage. The loan is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or when the property is sold. To be eligible, purchasers must be first-time buyers and their total household earnings should be less than £60,000.

Alternatively, there’s a selection of two-bedroom ‘Pulse Court’ apartments on sale at Reflections from just £164,995, while three-bedroom ‘Pulse Court’ plots are priced from £194,995.

These apartments are available with the Government’s NewBuy initiative, which lets first-time buyers and those with a property to sell access their new home with a 95% loan-to-value mortgage. Full details of this helpful new scheme are available from the Sales Executive.

The new homes at Reflections enjoy a fabulous position close to the heart of Romford, with The Mall and The Liberty shopping centres on the doorstep. Meanwhile, The Brewery retail and leisure centre offers a multiplex cinema, health and fitness club, bowling alley, restaurants and bars, in addition to Kidspace, Europe’s largest indoor play area.

Just a short walk from the new apartments is Romford station, which puts London’s Liverpool Street Station just minutes away by train – and the capital’s wealth of theatres, bars, shops and thousands of jobs within easy reach.

Home-hunters hoping to secure one of the stunning apartments at Reflections can visit the Sales and Marketing Suite, located off Oldchurch Road, Romford, and open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5.30pm. Alternatively, visit
