Discover How You Can Buy Your Own Home at Base in Brentwood

Do you dream of owning your own home but think it’s beyond your reach? Do the price, deposit, stamp duty and mortgage costs put you off becoming a homeowner? Well, owning your own home might be more affordable and hassle-free than you might think.

With various purchasing schemes available, this Saturday (16th June), Crest Nicholson is holding a ‘Challenge Crest’ day at its Base development in Brentwood. Potential buyers are invited to challenge the sales team to help them purchase their own home, whether it’s by Crest Nicholson paying 5% towards the buyer’s deposit, paying their stamp duty or contributing £500 per month towards their mortgage*.

Independent financial advisors Sacres Associates will also be on hand throughout the day to offer advice about mortgages, including the new 95% mortgages currently available.

Annette Cole, Sales & Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “We recognise that stepping onto the property ladder for the first time can be quite daunting and the various costs involved may discourage some buyers from making the move. Crest Nicholson has always been committed to helping buyers at all stages of their home owning career and, as such, we offer a variety of incentives to suit each purchaser to enable them to buy their own home.

“Thanks to the design, high quality and location of the apartments, Base is an ideal development for first time buyers yet it can often be challenging for buyers to make the leap between renting and buying. Our stamp duty paid, 5% towards deposit and £500 towards mortgage payments are always popular with first time buyers and we are delighted to be able to offer these incentives to buyers at Base.”

Base 7, comprising a mix of one and two-bedroom contemporary apartments, is the final phase to be launched at the development. A brand-new show apartment, which offers potential purchasers the opportunity to visualise how their home could be, has also recently opened.

Apartments at BASE provide an ideal, hassle free home for busy professionals and first-time-buyers; all homes include fully fitted kitchens that feature a comprehensive range of integrated Bosch appliances including a fridge/freezer and washer dryer – easing the burden of starting from scratch and taking the stress out of moving home. Most residents can also enjoy their own private balcony and each apartment benefits from lift access and allocated parking.

Located in the heart of Brentwood, the development is set within an attractive landscaped area just a short walk from the retail and leisure facilities of the town, including a wide range of bars, cafes and restaurants as well as major high street shops.

Within easy walking distance, Brentwood Train Station provides a direct 40 minute service into Liverpool Street Station, making the morning commute and access to the hustle and bustle of London simple. For those looking to enjoy a home or to invest in property near the London 2012 Olympic Games, the same service takes just 31 minutes into Stratford, the heart of the Olympic area.
