Find the best way to secure a new home in Telford
First-time buyers can discover everything they need to know about stepping on the property ladder during an event at Taylor Wimpey’s The Meadows development of properties for sale in Telford.
The leading housebuilder’s First-Time Buyer Event, taking place on Saturday 5th May, will enable Shropshire property-seekers to go through all the fine details involved in securing a brand new property in Telford with experienced professionals.
From 10am to 4pm, an expert team will be available to answer any burning questions home-hunters may have about securing new build homes in Telford, including how to secure the best mortgage deal and how to make their finances stretch further.
And not only will they be able to view detailed plans for the selection of contemporary new homes for sale in Telford at Taylor Wimpey’s The Meadows and Castle Meadows developments, but they can also discover more about how to secure their ideal home with just a 5% deposit under the fantastic FirstBuy scheme.
Jan Titley, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Our First-Time Buyer Event on Saturday 5th May is the perfect opportunity for would-be homeowners to pick the brains of those in the know and find out all the answers they need to demystify the home-buying process.
“Along with providing access to independent financial and legal advice, we will explain to first-time buyers – particularly those who think they can’t afford to buy a home – how easy owning a property at our Castle Meadows or The Meadows developments could be thanks to FirstBuy.”
Under FirstBuy, selected new homes at The Meadows and Castle Meadows can be secured by first-time buyers for just 80% of their full price, including a 5% deposit, subject to status.
FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Taylor Wimpey, which means that eligible purchasers only need put down a 5% deposit and obtain a 75% loan-to-value mortgage. 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.
For example, a two-bedroom apartment at Castle Meadows can be secured under FirstBuy for 80% of its £89,995 price – that’s just £71,996, including a deposit of only £4,500.
Meanwhile, at The Meadows, the three-bedroom ‘Bluebell’ terraced house, priced £145,995, can be secured with an 80% FirstBuy price of £116,796 and a 5% deposit of only £7,300.
Both the developments enjoy exceptional locations close to the centre of the bustling town of Telford, boasting a wide selection of national and independent shops, as well as leisure amenities including the 450-acre Telford Town Park and Telford Ski Centre.
Parents will appreciate the abundance of good schools nearby, including the high-performing Thomas Telford School and the innovative £70 million Hadley Learning Community.
Castle Meadows and The Meadows are ideally placed to take advantage of the region’s travel network, with junction 6 of the M54 close by for quick links to the M6 and M6 Toll to Staffordshire and Birmingham, and the A5 for Shrewsbury. Regular direct rail services operate from three stations in the town to Wolverhampton, Shrewsbury, Birmingham New Street and London Marylebone.
The FirstBuy Event takes place from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 5th May, with special talks scheduled for 11am and 1pm, at The Meadows at Millenium Village Sales and Marketing Suite, located off Holyhead Road, Telford, TF1 5BF.
Meanwhile, Castle Meadows is located off Britannia Way, Hadley, Telford, Shropshire, TF1 5PE, and is open Thursday to Monday, from 10am to 5pm.
