According to Santander, furnishing a property, along with mortgage fees and stamp duty is one of the biggest one off costs involved in purchasing a new home.
A 2011 study by the bank found that the average first-time buyer spends £3,872 kitting out a property.
Kevin Thubron, Sales and Marketing Director for Persimmon Homes, Yorkshire said: “To take the pressure off and keep the cost down we have devised a range of furniture and accessory packages allowing our customers to furnish their home from top to bottom before they even move in for as little as £2,749.”
The flexible packages offer a choice of contemporary furniture complete a three-year warranty and accessories in a range of colour schemes. Everything that a household could possibly need is itemised in the various packages, from sofas, beds and a 32in television to mirrors, picture frames, and bedding.
There is even a toilet roll holder and corkscrew among the list of options.
Kevin added: “Interior design company Fusion, has formulated the packages to give buyers the choice, value and peace of mind that their furniture and accessories will all co-ordinate perfectly.
“We hope that this initiative inspires house proud home buyers in Yorkshire and encourages them to take the easy route to furnishing their new home.”
