Get a Sharp Start onto the housing ladder with Bellway

HELP is at hand for Colchester homebuyers as housebuilder Bellway is giving purchasers the opportunity to move into a brand new home for just 85 percent of the price at its Vega development on Port Lane.

Under the developer's Sharp Start scheme buyers could move into a two-bedroom mid terrace Stewart style home for an initial outlay of just £138,545 and the deposit could be as low as £8150 and benefit from a Bellway 5 year interest free loan.

The Stewart is an ideal starter home comprising, a large living/ dining area and separate kitchen on the ground floor, a master bedroom and second bedroom plus family bathroom on the first floor.

Vega is close to Hythe and Colchester Town railway stations and the Town Centre itself. Colchester is now becoming a very popular choice for professionals, thanks to a combination of its excellent facilities and fast transport links. From Colchester North Station you can be in London Liverpool Street within just 50 minutes, and there are five trains an hour at peak times. Road links are also good, with the A12/M25 easy to access.

New residents, local School Teacher, Hayley Nice and her partner Andrew, said: "We had been living with parents in Colchester until now, having our own home has really transformed our lives, it is so reassuring to know that we finally have our own home in these very difficult times for first time buyers. I'd advise anyone who is interested to come and see the remaining homes as soon as possible. There will be a lot of demand and buyers will be served on a first come first served basis.

"Bellway’s Sharp Start initiative can dramatically reduce the initial cost of purchasing a house and for people who have been priced out of the market for years this is an outstanding opportunity to own their own home.”
