Easier ways to secure a new home in Cambridgeshire

1st May 2012 Print

Leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey is holding a special homebuyer event at its Lion Mills development of houses and apartments for sale in Cambridgeshire.

Would-be movers can find out about all the benefits of leaving renting behind – including how easy securing a brand new property in Cambridgeshire can be – during a special event taking place at Taylor Wimpey’s Lion Mills development.

A team of property professionals will be on hand to answer all aspiring Cambridgeshire property-owners’ questions about the housing market at the leading housebuilder’s Why Rent? weekend, taking place at the development between 10am and 5pm on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May.

Independent financial advisors will be able to offer visitors valuable tips about the best mortgage deals and how to make their finances stretch further, while Taylor Wimpey’s friendly Sales Executives will be there to show them the stunning range of homes they could purchase at the Lion Mills development.

Stacy Dornan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Many people get stuck in a rental rut because they think they cannot afford to step on the property ladder – but they don’t realise how simple, straightforward and inexpensive purchasing brand new houses in Cambridgeshire can be.

“Our Why Rent? weekend is the perfect opportunity for prospective purchasers to receive clear-cut answers to any home-buying queries they might have to help them make informed decisions about their futures.

“It is also a superb opportunity to discover more about the exceptional homes and incentives currently available at Lion Mills.”

Detailed information about Taylor Wimpey homes and incentives will be available to visitors during the Why Rent? weekend, plus they will be able to enjoy a range of refreshments, including a hog roast from midday to 2.30pm on the Saturday.

A great selection of two-bedroom homes is currently available at Lion Mills, including apartments priced from as little as £116,595, coach house-style apartments from just £130,722, terraced houses from only £157,995 and semi-detached homes from £159,995.

All homes at Lion Mills are completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.

To make choosing one of these high-quality homes even more appealing, Taylor Wimpey offers a range of helpful homebuyer incentives for first-time buyers and those with a property to sell.

The FirstBuy scheme, for example, lets qualifying first-time buyers secure their dream home at Lion Mills for just 80% of its full price, while Part Exchange sees Taylor Wimpey offer homeowners a guaranteed price for their existing property, based on the average of independent valuations.

Meanwhile, the NewBuy scheme offers first-time buyers and those with a property to sell the chance to purchase their new home with a 95% loan-to-value mortgage.

Incentives can be tailored to customers’ individual circumstances and are subject to availability, with full details available from the Sales Executive.

Nestled in landscaped grounds dotted with mature trees and green open spaces, the new homes at Lion Mills offer the advantages of laidback village living combined with convenient access to transport links.

The development benefits from a wide range of amenities on the doorstep, including high street shops, a choice of supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and take-aways, while Cambridge, Newmarket and Ely are all within easy reach by road.

For commuters, the A412 offers quick links to the A14 east and west, while Ely railway station provides a direct service to London King’s Cross.

The Why Rent? weekend takes place from 10am to 5pm on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May at Lion Mills, located off Clay Street, Soham. The development is also open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm, and Mondays from 1.30pm to 5pm. Alternatively, visit
