FirstBuy perfect for first time buyers
Local housebuilder Morris has made a young couples dream of home ownership a reality by helping them to move into their first home at the award winning Upton Dene development.
Jamie Whitlow and Linzi Brown (both 23) wanted to move to be closer to friends and family in the lively city of Chester. Morris’ Upton Dene development, off Liverpool Road, was the perfect location and offered them the chance to own their own home, rather than remain stuck in the rental market.
They took advantage of the government-led FirstBuy scheme which allows first time buyers to purchase a home for 80 per cent of its market value, allowing them to benefit from a lower deposit requirement and smaller monthly mortgage repayments.
Jamie said: “Moving from our rented accommodation in Ellesmere Port and owning our own home was made so much easier with Morris. It was stress free and we didn’t have to worry about saving for a huge deposit. It would have taken a lot longer to move without the scheme and the fact that there are lower monthly repayments also really helped”.
Chris Minshall, regional sales director for Morris, said: “The FirstBuy scheme offers people a quicker route to moving onto the property ladder and our sales advisors are on hand to help first time buyers have a stress free move. We’re delighted that we could help Jamie and Lindsay find their perfect property”
The development is situated only two miles from Chester city centre, close to shops and local amenities with the homes proving popular due to the modern design.
Jamie added: “We really wanted a new property and the three bed home we bought was the perfect size. We both work locally so the location was convenient and the move went smoothly as the sales advisors were really helpful.
“The development ticked all of the boxes as we wanted a modern, new build property which had excellent transport links for us to commute easily to and from work”.
A range of three and four bedroom homes are available at Morris’ Upton Dene development with prices starting from just £194,200.
