Shinfield MeadowsBerkshire house hunters are invited to find their dream home this weekend, as a new part of the Shinfield community opens the doors to a wide range of properties – and there will be big benefits for those who decide to reserve during the event.

Bovis Homes will be giving visitors the chance to look around five house types at an Open House event at its popular Shinfield Meadows location on Saturday 23rd June, giving home seekers the opportunity to see the style, layout and quality of the properties there.

“Buying a new home is a big decision and we're delighted that this weekend, in addition to viewing our stunning five-bedroom Chester show home, buyers will also have a chance to see a further four house types,” says regional marketing manager, Hollie Lockhart. “On top of that, we're also going to be offering £3k worth of Ikea vouchers, £10k towards stamp duty, £4k towards flooring and £1k towards landscaping to those who complete having reserved this weekend – so that buyers will have the chance to make their house a home when they move in.”

Shinfield Meadows As well as the Chester show home, visitors at the event will have the chance to look around the two-bedroom Amberley and Southwold, and the three-bedroom Epsom and Sheringham house types.

“If you are looking for a new home, this weekend is the perfect time for a visit,” says Hollie. “As well as having the chance take a tour of the homes and the site, we'll also have an independent financial advisor and estate agent on hand to offer advice.

“Making a dream move into one of our brand-new homes, may be much more achievable – and quicker – than you think,” says Hollie. “We have many homes ready to move into and it's worth finding out more about our range of purchase assistance schemes available.”

First-time buyers and existing home owners can take advantage of the Government's Help to Buy – Equity Loan scheme, which is available exclusively for new-build properties. With the scheme, purchasers only need a 5% deposit and receive an equity loan from the Government for up to 20% of the property's value, leaving just a 75% mortgage required.

For current home owners, the Smooth Move scheme can save purchasers time and money with the Bovis Homes team dealing with the estate agents on the seller's behalf, as well as paying the fees when the old property is sold.

Terms and conditions apply to all offers and purchase schemes, and to find out more, go to or visit the sales centre which is open daily from 10am until 5pm.
