Now is the time to buy at Berryfields

03 April 2014

With East of England house prices on the rise once again, Persimmon Homes is advising now is the right time to get on the housing ladder in Bedfordshire.

Claire Davidson, sales manager for Persimmon Midlands, said: “After years in the doldrums, house prices are now rising again, with some reports putting this area as a hotspot.

“Certainly the levels of interest at our Berryfields development, in the popular village of Wootton, show that there are eager buyers for practical family homes – we have almost sold out of the first phase already!

“Right now, we can offer the Government’s fantastic Help to Buy scheme, meaning you would only need a five per cent deposit to reserve your dream home.”

Berryfields, on Fields Road, has a range of three and four bedroom homes from £209,950. The development, close to excellent transport links, is enhanced by areas of open space and will also provide a new primary school with pre-school provision, sports facilities and a local centre.

According to the Office for National Statistics, house prices in the East of England rose 4.7 per cent last year, the fastest rate in almost four years.

The upturn is closely linked to increased availability of mortgages thanks to Help to Buy. The scheme, which allows people to buy with a 75 per cent mortgage and a 20 per cent Government loan, was extended by Chancellor George Osbourne in the budget and will now run until 2020.

Claire added: “For anyone looking to trade up from their existing property, we are able to offer our excellent Home Change scheme, where we use our experience and contacts to market the house on your behalf, saving time and money.

“Or, if you qualify for full Part Exchange, we can even buy your old house from you, so there is no chain to break and you can concentrate on moving into your dream new home.

“All new Persimmon homes are constructed to the latest technical and building regulations, making them thoughtfully designed and energy efficient, and they come with a National House Building Council 10-year warranty for peace of mind.

“Anyone who would like to find out more is invited to call into the marketing suite at Berryfields any day between 10am and 5pm to speak to one of our experienced sales advisors.”
