Homebase offers incentive to move

DIY retailer launches new scheme to help buyers furnish their homes to help reduce ‘additional moving-in costs’.
Homebase offers incentive to move
Working with developers, Homebase's new scheme provides new homebuyers with money to shop in the Homebase store of their choice, in the form of a furniture card.

The initiative works by allocating a proportion of the purchase price of the property to the card, giving the homeowner the cash value to spend.

National sales manager, Gordon McLaren said: "This scheme offers the buyer complete flexibility and control. A one-size-fits-all scheme doesn't work for many buyers. If they already have a bed, then they can spend on a sofa instead...It is an ideal solution to ensure every purchaser has the perfect furnishings and finishings for their new home."

Veridan Homes is the first developer to provide the furniture card to its buyers on its new eco-home development in Anglesey. Future developments are planned for Devon and Cornwall.
