First-time buyers can discover everything they need to know about purchasing a property in Milton Keynes during an event at Taylor Wimpey’s Willow Lake development.

A wealth of professional advice will be on offer for first-time buyers at Taylor Wimpey’s stunning Willow Lake development of properties for sale in Milton Keynes at a special event on Thursday 19th April.

The leading housebuilder is holding a FirstBuy Event at this popular development of new build homes in Milton Keynes to enable aspiring home-owners to find out more about the help that’s available to get them onto the property ladder.

There’s a choice of stylish two-bedroom apartments for sale in Milton Keynes at Willow Lake, with selected plots available under the Government-backed FirstBuy scheme – and experts will be on hand between 10am and 7pm to talk hopeful home-hunters through this fantastic offer.

The two-bedroom Plot 38 first-floor apartment, for example, can be accessed by a qualifying first-time buyer for just 80% of its £135,000 full purchase price – that’s only £108,000!

Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Anyone hoping to secure one of our new homes in Milton Keynes is urged to book a place at our special FirstBuy Event on Thursday 19th April to ensure they have an allocated time to receive the advice they need.

“With FirstBuy, qualifying customers can own a brand new home at Willow Lake with a deposit of as little as 5% – that’s just £6,750, subject to status – and receive an equity loan covering 20% of the purchase price of their new home, enabling them to gain a 75% mortgage without having to save a large deposit!

“This means anyone choosing a first home under this scheme can take advantage of amazing lower monthly repayments under FirstBuy!”

Two-bedroom apartments currently available with FirstBuy at Willow Lake each feature an open-plan kitchen/lounge/dining area, an en-suite master bedroom, another bedroom which could alternatively be used as a home office and a bathroom, plus an allocated parking space outside. Selected plots feature attractive private balconies to living areas and master bedrooms.

FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Taylor Wimpey, which 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.

All new homes at Willow Lake are being built to a standard that provides significant energy efficiency savings compared with typical new-build homes of just a few years ago, and each new property includes a fitted kitchen with integral oven, hob and hood.

Overlooking the picturesque Jubilee Lake on the southern edge of Milton Keynes, Willow Lake will feature a range of facilities on the doorstep including a primary school, a recreational park, a hotel and leisure amenities.

A supermarket, nurseries and schools, and a choice of pubs and restaurants can be found just a short distance away.

For commuters, the A5 and the M1 are just a few minutes’ drive from the development, while those travelling further afield will appreciate that Luton Airport is only 25 miles away. Services from Bletchley railway station to Euston put central London just over an hour away by train.

Anyone hoping to step onto the property ladder at Willow Lake should book their place at the FirstBuy Event on Thursday 19th April at the Sales Centre, located at Martinique Meadows, Newton Leys, off Drayton Road, Newton Longville (Sat Nav postcode MK17 0EE), by visiting
