Solar panels fuel enthusiasm for Bromford homes

THE LAST few shared ownership homes for sale at an Oxfordshire village are looking like even better value than ever - as household energy bills go up and up.
Why? Because all of the high-quality Bromford Homes houses at this attractive new development in the village of Bloxham, near Banbury, feature solar panels that help to save pounds AND the planet.
The panels cut down on energy use and, as a result, householders will be noticeably better off than people with traditional homes at a time when the average annual dual fuel bill is said to be more than £1,300.
It’s a win-win proposition for any would-be buyer, according to Bromford Homes Sales Consultant Kirsty Darby.
“These homes are incredible value for money in such a sought-after area. With shared ownership, you could get your foot on the property ladder here for as little as £46,250 – or a deposit of just over £2,300,” said Kirsty.
“For that you get a traditionally built, energy-efficient home, with double glazing and high-performance insulation throughout, at a price that also includes many features you might have to pay for as extras elsewhere.
“On top of that, your home comes with low-maintenance solar panels that will save on energy cost. That’s got to be welcome news for any household – but particularly at a time when household budgets are under pressure and the average dual fuel bill is £1,310 a year.
“That figure can only go up in the future so anything that slows the increase or even reduces the bill is surely a good thing. It’s also good for the Planet, of course, and most of us want to do our bit these days when it comes to cutting down on our carbon footprint.”
Woodland Gardens is off Milton Road, Bloxham, about ten minutes walk from the High Street with its shops, schools and other amenities. The market town of Banbury is just three miles away.
* £46,250 is equal to a 25 per cent share of a two-bed house at Woodland Gardens and the deposit, assuming a 95 per cent mortgage, would be £2,313. A 25 per cent share of a three-bed house would be £52,500 and the deposit, again with a 95 per cent mortgage, would be £2,625.
