Homebuyers in St Helens can save more than £4,000 in their first year of owning a brand new home.
Morris, which is developing Waterside Village on Lowfield Lane in St Helens, and College Place on Crow Lane East in Newton-le-Willows, has conducted research into the cost of some of the most common modifications buyers make when moving into older properties.
This includes fitting a new, more energy efficient boiler, high-grade insulation, security lighting, and new locks to bring the property up to current standards, and giving a fresh coat of paint to every room.
The total cost that buyers can expect to spend is £4,393.
Chris Minshall, sales director for Morris, said: “Moving home can be expensive, and budgets can be squeezed even further by having to upgrade appliances such as the boiler once you are settled in.
“The benefit of a new home is that all of these features are already installed, and the property is also supplied with a 10-year warranty to provide peace of mind.
“If you’re beginning a search for a house, it’s worth speaking to our sales advisors to find out more about the features of our new homes, as well as the buying initiatives to help you get on or move up the property ladder.”
A range of one, two, three and four-bedroom properties are available at Waterside Village and College Place.
All properties are available with Help to Buy, which reduces the deposit needed to buy a home to just five per cent of its value. A further 20 per cent is provided by the Government in the form of a loan which is interest-free for five years.
Morris’ Part Exchange scheme is also available to help buyers to move quickly into their new home. Under the initiative, Morris will purchase a buyer’s existing property for 100 per cent of its market value.
This removes the need for estate agents and, with a guaranteed buyer in place, can significantly reduce the length of the moving process
