Persimmon Homes makes waterside living affordable

Louth home hunters looking to live in a tranquil part of town can purchase a canal-side apartment for a low price that they might not expect.

For a small deposit of just £3,319* first time buyers can get the keys to a brand new two bedroom apartment at the stunning Persimmon Homes Waterside development.

Speaking of the apartments, Persimmon Homes’ sales director, Kevin Thubron, said: “These exciting new properties are located in a conservation area next to the canal and ideally suited for first time buyers.

“A large deposit is often a stumbling block for people when they are buying their first home. With prices starting from just £66,399* with FirstBuy, purchasers are able to move in to one of our stylish new apartments with a 5% deposit of just £3,319.*

“We continually look at ways in which to help customers get onto the property ladder and the FirstBuy initiative makes it an appealing and affordable offer for our customers. Buyers only need to raise a 5% deposit, with a 20% equity loan being lent equally from Persimmon and the government, so purchasers only needing to arrange a mortgage for the remaining 75%.”

The Waterside apartments have been designed to blend in with their picturesque conservation location, using traditional styles and materials. Unlike some older properties, they are ready to move straight into with a garage, double glazing and a range of modern fully fitted kitchens.

Kevin added: “We’ve had a lot of interest in these apartments and it’s easy to see why. People will be amazed to find that we are offering homes in this picturesque location at a price that they can afford. “

Waterside offers a selection of competitively priced two, three and four bedroom homes, along with two bedroom apartments which are suitable for both first time buyers and first time movers alike.
