looking for your first home in Swansea – A weekend dedicated to helping first time buyers onto the property ladder has proved a success for Barratt at its Copper Quarter development in Swansea.
looking for your first home in Swansea – The event highlighted schemes available to first time buyers – many of whom view owning a home as a virtual impossibility. “Being a homeowner is something many people aspire to – but it is often very tricky for some to finance that first step,” said sales director, Adrian Bird. “We are delighted to be able to help by offering a number of schemes – including Headstart.”
A shared equity scheme, Headstart allows buyers to secure a home for just 85 per cent of the asking price. The remaining 15 per cent is funded through a deferred Barratt loan. And buyers don’t have to pay this until the home is sold again or in ten years – whichever is sooner. Potential buyers visiting Copper Quarter will also get the chance to view Barratt’s celebrated iPad apartment.
From just £104,995, the chic, urban, two bedroom homes are proving so popular that the developer is launching a second phase at the sought after site. And to mark this success, Barratt is giving an Apple iPad to every buyer reserving an iPad apartment during August. “Combining luxury with an exceptional feeling of space, these apartments are designed to provide everything first time buyers are looking for in a brand new home,” said Adrian.
“Interest in our current phase has been overwhelming – so we are now offering more. Copper Quarter is set in a riverside environment with landscaped areas for residents and walks along the River Tawe. Nearby Swansea, birthplace of poet Dylan Thomas and actress Catherine Zeta Jones, is a lively and vibrant maritime city and regional shopping centre. Only a stone's throw away, the Victorian resort of Mumbles offers a fantastic array of attractions including a pier, traditional boutiques, craft shops and ice-cream parlours.
