Secure a home in Leighton Buzzard with FirstBuy
First-time buyers can secure a stunning three-bedroom home with just a 5% deposit at Taylor Wimpey’s popular Billington Grove development of new build properties in Leighton Buzzard.
The Government-backed FirstBuy initiative offers qualifying Bedfordshire property-seekers the chance to access the gorgeous ‘Gosford’ terraced house at the development for 80% of its £195,000 full price – that’s just £156,000, including a 5% deposit of only £9,750, subject to status.
With the typical deposit required for an 80% mortgage now £30,000, this superb scheme gives first-time buyers the chance to purchase their dream property in Leighton Buzzard much sooner than might otherwise have been possible.
Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “FirstBuy is helping more and more first-time buyers step on the property ladder right across the country – and now it’s available with this beautiful three-bedroom house at our Billington Grove development of new build houses in Leighton Buzzard.
“It won’t be long before one lucky purchaser takes advantage of this fantastic incentive and snaps up the gorgeous ‘Gosford’ – so the message to prospective purchasers is to visit our Sales Centre without delay.”
The stylish three-bedroom Plot 164 ‘Gosford’ terraced house features a spacious living/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a contemporary kitchen and a handy guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Upstairs, the landing leads to the en-suite master bedroom, two further well-proportioned bedrooms, one of which could alternatively be used as a home office, and a main bathroom, while outside the property benefits from two allocated parking spaces.
FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Taylor Wimpey, which eliminates the need for a big deposit. The loan is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or when the property is sold. To be eligible, purchasers must be first-time buyers and their total household earnings should be less than £60,000.
Alternatively, the three-bedroom ‘Coniston’ is priced from just £220,000 at Billington Grove, while four-bedroom houses are available from just £270,000, and five-bedroom properties from only £335,000.
All homes at Billington Grove are completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.
