Help to purchase a first home in Birkenhead

21st June 2011 Print

Lovell is devoting a whole weekend to giving advice to first time buyers in Birkenhead.

Would be home owners can find out everything they need to know about buying a home at Sevenoaks, on Saturday and Sunday, June 25 / 26, where they can also talk to an independent financial advisor about their mortgage options.

Elaine Taylor, regional sales manager for Lovell said: “We have a number of ways we can help first time buyers. For example, with our shared equity scheme, buyers could initially purchase a new home from £108,796.

The scheme means you only pay 85% of the asking price up front, but own 100% of your new home. There’s no interest or rent to pay on the deferred amount, you have 10 years to pay it back.

Elaine Taylor added: “This is a fantastic incentive for first time buyers who may be finding it difficult to save for the large deposits required by many mortgage providers. It’s available across all of our Liverpool developments.

“With the potential for better interest rates and much lower monthly mortgage payments, our shared equity scheme gives homebuyers a viable alternative to renting and means they have an asset to show for their money.”

Lovell has seen strong sales in recent weeks at Sevenoaks and has just opened the doors to two new show homes.

Sevenoaks is ideally located for all the shops and amenities of Birkenhead, including the Pyramids Shopping Centre, and also enjoys easy access to Liverpool or Chester city centres by road or rail from the adjacent Rock Ferry train station.

There’s also a good choice of primary and secondary schools and leisure facilities locally. Residents are close to Prenton Park football stadium, Mersey Park and Victoria Park.

A wide choice of three and four-bedroom homes is currently available at Sevenoaks, with full prices from £127,995.

All properties come complete with modern fitted bathrooms and kitchens plus appliances, which give the new properties the style edge over second hand homes. It could even be an option to personalise your new home with Lovell’s ‘Inspirations’ range of extras.

For more information, visit the marketing suite and show homes at Sevenoaks, off Bedford Road, over the weekend of June 25 / 26 between 10am and 5pm.
