Life at Bonnington scores 10/10 as Shared Equity offer strikes a chord with savvy purchasers…

To keep up with early demand after an impressive 10 apartments were reserved in the space of a fortnight, Westpoint Homes have responded by fast-tracking the next release of 9 apartments which will be ready in the next 10 to 12 weeks.

A “Stand Out” Performance

Westpoint Homes’ decision to go down the SHARED EQUITY route created excitement levels last witnessed at the original sales launch way back in 2008.  Purchasers originally frozen out due principally to a “lack of deposit” were at last able to reserve their dream apartment on the periphery of the New Town.

Home Buying Made Easy

Reservations have been brisk thanks to the success of other practical incentives like part exchange, assistance with deposits, stamp duty and help with legal and survey fees. Westpoint Homes’ EasyPlan incentive is geared towards the less experienced purchaser who may not have budgeted for survey and legal fees or even had a solicitor or surveying company in mind to help facilitate the purchase.  Westpoint Homes have set out to make sure that the process of buying a new home is stream-lined wherever possible; ideal for those “time-starved” among you!

Without compromise

To further strengthen the appeal of the SHARED EQUITY incentive, the company has rolled-out the very same HIGH LEVEL of specification that featured in phase 1.  The extraordinarily large shower rooms with feature rain-dance shower head and bespoke vanity furniture are particularly eye-catching whilst there is considerable value-added in the high gloss kitchen cabinetry featuring the full gambit of “must have” appliances such as a washer dryer, integrated fridge freezer, oven hob and hood, and integrated dishwasher.  Small touches like the black glass 4-ring gas hob and splash-back, Hansgrohe pull-out spray tap, contemporary chrome finish 3-way spot lights; floor level halogen plinth lighting and chrome switches and sockets simply reinforce the “quality feel” in the kitchen area.   And the apartments score high on the “practical” front too with all bedrooms featuring built-in wardrobes.  The most outstanding facet however has to be the remarkable size of the lounge, kitchen and dining area; the perfect city pad to entertain friends and family!  The best way to sum it up is “Manhattan-chic”!

Excellence at Realistic Prices

At LIFE the majority of apartments are priced from £180,000 to £185,000. With walk-through apartments also available to view, the buyer is given a useful insight into exactly what they can expect to get for their money. Westpoint Homes believe that if they continue to put quality, value and service to the forefront, then sales will inevitably take care of themselves.  The Development Director says “The market in Scotland is certainly picking up and we have been very encouraged by the swift take up of homes on a shared equity basis; so much so that we have brought forward the penultimate phase with a view to offering shared equity here also.  We have found that the SHARED EQUITY incentive has very quickly turned high interest levels and footfall in to actual sales.  Clearly, it was “lack of deposits” that was holding back sales.  Our plan is to now strike while the iron is hot and deliver even more sales in the next month.  It reinforces the view that there is a strong pool of intending purchasers out there, albeit with some difficulties in saving up deposits or securing a suitable mortgage product.  We also appreciate that any incentive has to be bespoke and parcelled around clients’ individual circumstances.” The LIFE sales complex just off Newhaven Road/Broughton Road is open 5 days – Thursday to Monday from 11am to 5.30pm.
