Another successful purchase with Help to Buy

So much has been written about the government backed initiative, Help to Buy, and it proved to be a very positive experience for Ross and Charlotte (Charlie) Marshall who bought at the Bellway Homes’ Abbotswood development in Romsey.

“We had lived in Romsey before then moved to Nether Wallop which was more convenient for work, but we decided to move back to Romsey,” explains Charlie. “Our former property was really a DIY project so to now have a brand new home is just fantastic. It is the first time we have bought new and as far as I am concerned it is perfect.”

Ross and Charlie bought a three storey townhouse which is really spacious and is easily able to accommodate, two children, a dog, a cat and a fish!

“It gives us an extra family room downstairs so the children can have their space to play freely, leaving us with a lovely lounge that is calm, cosy and clutter free!” added Charlie. “The style and layout of this house just suits us so well.”

Help to Buy enabled Ross and Charlie to step up to a property that answered so many of their requirements.

“I was impressed with the communication from the Bellway team and the financial adviser I was dealing with,” says Ross. “Everything was explained very clearly and if I had any queries they were dealt with.”
Help to Buy is aimed at helping homebuyers across England purchase a new-build home with as little as a 5% deposit. Through this scheme homebuyers with a minimum of 5% deposit could be eligible to receive an interest free, for the first five years, equity loan, from the UK government of up to 20% of the value of their new home, leaving them only needing to secure up to a 75% mortgage from a bank or building society. The scheme is available to both first-time buyers and existing homeowners (if you have sold your current home), on new-build properties up to a maximum value of £600,000.
Homes at Abbotswood currently range in price from £274,995 to £374,995 and if you have not yet sold your existing property perhaps the company Part Exchange or Express Mover scheme might just fit the bill so do ask for full details.
The sales centre is open daily from 10am to 5pm or call 01794 513377. Alternatively visit the web site www.bellway.co.uk.
