New homes on sale now in West Midlands

27 July 2011

Come and see some of the quality new homes that Bovis Homes is building in the West Midlands.

Work is progressing well on the first phase of our College Gate development, which is set to become a 117-home community with a full mix of housetypes and sizes. A two bedroom showhouse is already open at the development, with this first release of new houses containing two, three and four bedroom homes.

Properties available include the two bedroom Brookhouse home, from £129,995 - ideal for first-time buyers, couples and professionals and the four bedroom Brandhall home, from £179,995, which would make an excellent family home.

Both come with the Bovis Homes all-inclusive specification as part of the price, which includes a contemporary fitted kitchen with recessed down lighters and integrated appliances, fitted wardrobes to the main bedroom and allocated parking.

Areas Sales Director Lesley Hadley-Clarke said: "CollegeGate is in a very convenient location for both the local facilities in the town and also for Birmingham itself. It has good public transport and excellent road links via the A456 to the heart of Birmingham and to the M5."

"With the development only just opened anyone who would like to reserve their preferred plot is advised to contact us as soon as possible. At this stage we can show them the detailed development lay-out and individual house plans and they can choose which home they like best and which part of the development they would most like to live."

College Gate is one of a selection of Bovis Homes developments in the UK that was successful in applying for purchase assistance from the new Government-backed FirstBuy scheme, which should offer an excellent chance for first-time buyers in The Midlands to get on the property ladder.

Paul Spooner, executive director for the Homes and Communities Agency Midlands, said: 'Thanks to FirstBuy, 2,500 first time buyers in the Midlands will be able to get a foot on the property ladder, while house builders including Bovis Homes will benefit from an additional source of sales, giving a much-needed boost to the development industry.'

FirstBuy works with a 20% joint equity loan from the Government and Bovis Homes with the purchaser needing just a 5% deposit which means a first-time buyer could get a two-bed home at College Gate priced at £129,995 with a deposit of £5,200 and a mortgage of £103,996.

Specific terms and conditions apply to all schemes and these are available from the website at
