Persimmon unveils apartment lifestyle for less than the cost of the weekly shop

21 November 2013

Persimmon says it is now possible to enjoy a brand new apartment lifestyle for less than the price of the average weekly shop.

Persimmon Homes says new apartments at its Butlers Court development in Birmingham start from as little as £60 a week – nearly £20 less than the cost of a typical family’s weekly trip to the supermarket.

And it says the apartments offer a real taste of high-quality living in a superbly convenient location.

Alison Reading, sales and marketing director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands, said Butlers Court offered outstanding value for money for new buyers.

“We have a really exciting range of 30 two-bedroom apartments at Butlers Court in a variety of different designs,” said Alison.

“With the vibrant centre of Birmingham just over three miles away, this is a real chance for new buyers to snap up a dream home in an established location and enjoy a taste of the city lifestyle for less than the average family spends in the supermarket each week.”

Latest figures from consumer magazine Which put the average weekly shopping bill at £77.

Prices at Butlers Court – which is set in Cape Hill, Smethwick – start from £89,995 using the Help to Buy Scheme, and with a whole range of Persimmon offers also available Alison says it has never been easier to buy a new apartment.

“All of the apartments have been thoughtfully designed, with many featuring their own balconies, and offer the peace of mind of a newly-built home at a price which simply cannot be beaten.”

Cape Hill has a wide selection of shops, bars, pubs and restaurants to choose from, whilst the centre of Birmingham offers an unbeatable choice of entertainment within easy reach. The area has excellent transport links to the national motorway network and is served by a selection of local schools.

The newly-extended Help to Buy scheme give buyers the chance to secure their home with just a five per cent deposit and 75 per cent mortgage. The remainder is made up by a Government-backed equity loan which is interest free for a period of five years.
