First Time Buyer Friendly Properties26.06.12
Here at Dunelm we have a selection of first time buyer friendly properties at Orchard Meadows, with the two bedroom Lincoln property available for just £124,995
Orchard Meadows is situated in Kip Hill on the outskirts of Stanley and offers a warm, welcoming environment for couples or families looking for a home in the peace of the countryside but with a strong community feel. The two –bedroom Lincoln offers the perfect blend of space, storage and comfort to first time buyers hoping to make the leap from rented accommodation or living with parents to owning their own home.
Recent ONS figures have shown new build house prices are rising faster than older properties, with a 5.1% annual rise reported in April against the 1.1% increase reported across the resale market. The continued rise in value indicates the flexibility and ease of purchasing a new build over an older home is continuing to draw in buyers attracted by the wealth of financial support available.
Colin Willetts, sales and marketing manager at Dunelm Homes said: “Now really is a great time for buyers to take another look at the choices for purchasing a new build home thanks to the wide range of support available to assist in finding your dream home. For first time buyers, the government-backed FirstBuy shared equity scheme helps buyers struggling to raise high mortgage deposits with shared equity loans, which alongside the Dunelm Homes 85/15 shared equity option, gives buyers access to a wider range of mortgage deals for a more accessible route into home ownership.
“The ten year NHBC guarantee and two year warranty offered across all Dunelm Homes continues to make new build properties a popular choice for a contemporary, low-maintenance home in a quiet setting such as Orchard Meadows.”
