Selected properties are now available with 95% mortgages under the NewBuy initative at Taylor Wimpey’s Heath Meadows development of new homes for sale in Leighton Buzzard.

Bedfordshire property-seekers are being offered a fabulous opportunity to take advantage of a new Government scheme which will make it easier to purchase a new home at Heath Meadows, Taylor Wimpey’s stunning development of houses for sale in Leighton Buzzard.

The NewBuy initiative will help both first-time buyers and those looking to move home by enabling house-hunters to access 95% mortgages on properties up to the value of £500,000 at the Taylor Wimpey Leighton Buzzard development.

The scheme is set to make it easier for credit-worthy purchasers choosing property for sale in Leighton Buzzard at Heath Meadows to secure affordable mortgages with only a 5% deposit – that’s as little as £6,375!

The initiative is likely to go down well with buyers in search of new build homes in Leighton Buzzard, many of whom see the size of deposit as the main barrier to purchasing a property. A recent survey by Taylor Wimpey revealed that 54% of first-time buyers had abandoned plans to buy a house in the last 18 months because they couldn’t afford to save the large deposit required by mortgage lenders. 57% of those surveyed also said they thought the Government should be doing more to help first-time buyers.

Tony Woodman, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Time and time again our buyers tell us that it is mortgage availability, not mortgage affordability, which is preventing them from buying.

“This scheme will help both those looking to get on the property ladder and those who want to move but have limited equity in their existing home, so it’s good news for the market as a whole.”

There’s a fantastic selection of new homes available at Heath Meadows which are eligible for NewBuy, including stylish two-bedroom apartments priced from just £127,500, gorgeous three-bedroom terraced houses from only £189,950, and impressive four-bedroom townhouses from just £199,950.

Heath Meadows occupies a convenient location in popular Leighton Buzzard, and is well served by local amenities, including a nursery and schools for children of all ages.

Lying just two miles from the town centre, the development is within easy reach of a wide selection of high street and independent stores, a twice-weekly market and a wealth of pubs, restaurants, health clubs and leisure facilities.

Quick links to London make a home at Heath Meadows highly desirable for commuters, with the A5 and M1 close by and the town’s rail station offering regular services to the capital and the North. Those travelling further afield will appreciate that Luton Airport is only 18 miles from the development.
