Homes Being Snapped Up Trafalgar Court
Thursday, 28 January 2010
A brand new community in the Linthouse area of Glasgow is gathering pace, as property hunters prepare to put down roots at the newly launched Trafalgar Court development.
Reservations are now being taken at the new address which is a result of a landmark partnership between property developer Merchant Homes and Linthouse Housing Association.
There has been a rush of interest in the development's New Supply Shared Equity (NSSE) scheme since plans for the site were announced in late 2009, and prospective homebuyers are now able to reserve their dream home with NSSE applications already being processed.
Trafalgar Court has launched with 12 apartments available under the shared equity deal. The two-bedroom homes are priced at £95,000, with the scheme allowing a purchase of 60-80% which could see residents securing their property for between £57,000 and £76,000.
All properties feature balconies, lift access, allocated parking spaces and oven, hob and hood. The homes are being created to Merchant Homes' exacting standards of quality and style and have generous living spaces averaging 740 square feet.
Move in dates at Trafalgar Court are scheduled for early June 2010.
Linda McLuskie, Sales and Marketing Director for Merchant Homes, said: "We are delighted with the initial response we've had to Trafalgar Court and are really pleased to finally welcome reservations.
"This development could be exactly what first time buyers need - the housing market is beginning to improve, however making that first step onto the property ladder is still tricky and the New Supply Shared Equity scheme available at Trafalgar Court can make that 'home sweet home' an achievable dream.
"Properties are being snapped up quickly at the development and we expect this popular site to soon become a fantastic place to live."
