Step Onto or Up the Property Ladder in 2013 at Rosewood

This weekend (19th & 20th January), potential first and second time purchasers at Crest Nicholson’s Rosewood development in Colchester are invited to take advantage of purchasing schemes which will help them onto and up the property ladder. Crest Nicholson’s experienced sales team will be on hand throughout the weekend to help buyers achieve their home-owning goals in a way that suits their circumstances and budget.

Buyer struggling to raise the funds required up-front can have their Stamp Duty paid by Crest Nicholson, which will also provide flooring free-of-charge. Alternatively, buyers can take advantage of either the Government-backed NewBuy scheme or Crest Nicholson Part Exchange incentive.

The incentives are available on a range of properties at Rosewood, including three-bedroom houses priced from £260,000 and four-bedroom houses priced from £312,500.

With NewBuy, purchasers only need a 5% deposit to get on the ladder; a far cry from the typical 20%-25% deposit still required by many mortgage lenders. The great thing about NewBuy is that it is available not only to first-time buyers but also to existing homeowners who have little equity in their current property and are unable to raise the necessary funds to upgrade to a larger home that better suits their requirements.

Part Exchange is designed to help existing home-owners move into a brand-new Crest Nicholson home without the delays and stresses often associated with moving house. Purchasers simply need to identify the property at Rosewood they wish to buy and the developer will then arrange for three different estate agents to assess and value their existing property. Once Crest Nicholson’s purchase offer has been accepted, the buyer’s new home at the development will be reserved – it’s as simple as that.

Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “Buying a home is one of the biggest financial commitments anyone can make, so it’s inevitable that there may be some challenges to overcome. We recognise the financial challenges that the current economic climate has brought and so we endeavour to make purchasing a property with us as easy and as smooth as possible. Buying a new home may not be as difficult as people think; owning a new home in 2013 may be far more achievable that people realise.”
