New homes in Leicester available with FirstBuy
Leicestershire property-seekers can secure their first home for less thanks to the FirstBuy scheme at Taylor Wimpey’s Cedar Walk development of new homes for sale in Birstall, Leicester.
First-time buyers can take advantage of a Government-backed scheme to secure their ideal new Leicester property for 80% of its full price at Cedar Walk, Taylor Wimpey’s popular development in Birstall, Leicestershire.
The FirstBuy initiative allows qualifying purchasers to choose from a superb selection of high-quality new homes for sale in Leicester at Cedar Walk and own 100% of their new home now – with only a 75% mortgage and a 5% deposit, subject to status.
With prices starting at just £99,995 for the range of one and two-bedroom apartments for sale in Leicester and two, three and four-bedroom houses available under this fantastic initiative – individuals, couples and families could secure their first home with a deposit as low as £5,000 at the development of new-build houses in Birstall.
Carolyne Watkinson, Regional Sales Manager at Taylor Wimpey, says: “FirstBuy gives first-time buyers an easy and affordable opportunity to leave renting behind and step on the Birstall property ladder in style.
“We have an exceptional selection of properties available under FirstBuy, but availability is strictly limited, so prospective purchasers should contact us without delay to find out more.”
Under FirstBuy, Taylor Wimpey and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) boost the purchaser’s down-payment with a joint loan of 20%, which is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or when the property is sold. To be eligible, customers must be first-time buyers with a household income below £60,000.
The one-bedroom Plot 51 ‘Hallam’ apartment, for example, can be secured under FirstBuy for just 80% of its £99,995 price – that’s just £79,996, including a 5% deposit of only £5,000.
Alternatively, two-bedroom apartments are priced from just £109,995 at Cedar Walk, two-bedroom starter homes from only £132,995, three-bedroom houses from £182,995 and four-bedroom properties from £187,995, with selected plots available under FirstBuy.
All new homes at the development are completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.
Nestled on the edge of Birstall village, Cedar Walk is an exclusive development of 108 new homes at Hallam Fields, just a stone’s throw from beautiful open countryside and village amenities.
As the new community grows, it will benefit from a range of new facilities on the doorstep, including a new school, shops, offices and business units.
For commuters, the nearby A6 provides a quick link into Leicester city centre and Loughborough, while junction 21a of the M1 is just five miles from home.
A new park and ride bus service also operates close to Cedar Walk, providing a speedy and stress-free commute into the centre of Leicester, where a huge range of high street and independent stores can be found, alongside a wealth of cultural and leisure amenities. Fosse Park, a large retail development, is also within easy reach of the new homes.
