WITH so much romance in the air, it's no surprise that more first-time buyers are falling in love with Bromford homes.

A special Valentine’s date set the scene for the “big romance” with heart-shaped balloons and chocolates adding to the stylish charms of Bromford's Fortuna showhome in Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

Sales Consultant Kirsty Darby was there to act as “matchmaker” and by the end of the weekend was delighted to report that two more customers had fallen in love with a Bromford home.

The new holding reservations add to an already successful sales tally at this shared ownership development in the Capital of the Cotswolds, with 70 sets of keys handed over and four more homes reserved.

“With sales now heading for the 80 milestone, it’s clear that buyers really love Fortuna and they love their Bromford homes − and we wanted to celebrate that fact with our special Valentine’s event,” says Kirsty.

“We wanted to create a fun opportunity for homebuyers at Fortuna and three more leading developments to find out more about our great homes and why it’s so easy to fall in love with them.”

Bromford Homes Head of Sales (South) Trish Foster encourages more homehunters to “feel the love” as well as find out more about the top quality and great value, with prices that start at Fortuna from as little as £57,500* for a three-bed house through HomeBuy shared ownership.

"Buying a home is probably the biggest investment you'll ever make and that's why it's so important to do all the sensible things like making sure the quality and the price are right and that you've got all the relevant guarantees," says Trish.

"We know that Bromford ticks all of those boxes in style. In fact, we think you can't buy better than a Bromford home − and we've got lots of customers who agree.

"But we also understand that, for most people, they are making an emotional investment as well as a financial one. For them, househunting is also about finding the home of your dreams; they want to fall in love with it.

"We thought entering into the Valentine's spirit was a good way of letting people do exactly that − and it look like we’ve seen the start of at least two more love stories.”

The heart-shaped balloons and chocs were also out in force at two more Gloucestershire developments − Oakdale in Lydney and St Mark’s View in Cheltenham − as well as Priorsleap in Telford.

* The minimum £57,500 price is based on a customer buying 25 per cent of a three-bed house costing £230,000. The deposit, based on a customer borrowing 95 per cent, would be £2,875. Follow us on Twitter @BromfordHomes
