Estate agent launches offer to make city living more affordable

An estate agent in Liverpool has launched an offer to make city living more affordable.

City Residential is offering to pay the 5% deposit, legal fees and even stamp duty (up to a total of 10,000) for anybody buying in the recently launched City Central scheme.

Alternatively, buyers can opt to suspend mortgage repayments until January 2007.

Marie Wilkinson, spokeswoman for City Residential, says: “We are providing the opportunity for people such as first-time buyers to purchase a city centre apartment in an impressive and charming development.

“Assistance such as this can often be a deciding factor as to whether people can afford to move, we hope that these offers will encourage prospective buyers to invest in city centre property.”

City Central, a development of one and two bedroom apartments, includes features such as glass atrium, original cast iron columns and restored exposed roof trusses.

Developed by Burleigh Estates, City Central is located in the centre of the business district and close to The Met Quarter, set to house many designer stores, including Flannels and Armani

City Central has been renovated with brushed aluminum ironmongery and laminate flooring throughout. All kitchens are fully fitted with modern high gloss units and integrated appliances, including fridge freezer and dishwasher.
