Why now is the time to buy dream homes for sale in Fletton

02 September 2011

With a report detailing that the combination of steady house prices and the rising cost of renting, it’s once again cheaper to buy a property. This will come as welcome news for first time buyers in Peterborough as properties at Persimmon Homes’ inviting Cityscape development allow purchasers to buy their first home with financial ease.

“With interest rates continuing to remain low, monthly mortgage repayments are reported to be 30 per cent less than rental figures,” states Cheryl Bissett, sales director for Persimmon Homes East Midlands. She adds: “This is being reflected in Peterborough as we’re seeing a great number of new visitors to our Cityscape development, all looking to take their first step onto the property ladder instead of being caught out in the rental market.”

Persimmon Homes is offering the Government-led 80 per cent shared equity FirstBuy scheme on selected two and three bedroom properties at Cityscape, which have been impressing first time buyers looking for somewhere truly special to call home.

Cheryl continues: “We are one of just a handful of developers in the area offering the attractive 80 per cent shared equity scheme. This means homebuyers can purchase a beautiful house in an up and coming area of Peterborough, with just a five per cent deposit to pay.”

With monthly mortgage repayments set at below the average rental costs of the area, it’s easy to see why buying brand new homes for sale in Fletton with Persimmon isn’t just an attractive proposition, but an affordable one too.

To give interested parties an insight into how the properties at Cityscape will look when complete, Persimmon has transformed one of the three bedroom Evesham housetypes into a stunning viewhome, which is just waiting to be explored.

Cityscape is being constructed in a cul-de-sac design so purchasers can enjoy the best of both worlds, close to the bright lights of Peterborough’s city centre, whilst being able to escape the hustle and bustle at home. There is an abundance of off road parking and two areas of public open space for residents and their friends and family to enjoy.
