Incentives available with new homes in Braintree

17th January 2012 Print

Essex property-seekers can benefit from a selection of money-saving schemes at Taylor Wimpey’s Scholars Mews development of new homes for sale in Braintree.

Leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey is offering a range of fantastic homebuyer incentives to help purchasers make their dream move to a brand new property for sale in Essex at Scholars Mews, Braintree – whatever their circumstances.

Whether would-be movers are looking for their first property or want to upgrade to a bigger family-size home, there’s an initiative to help them on their way at this exclusive development of just 13 stylish houses for sale in Essex.

Aspiring homeowners can take advantage of the Government-backed FirstBuy scheme, for example, which allows them to secure selected houses for sale in Braintree at this sought-after development for just 80% of their full price.

Alternatively, customers choosing selected family-size new homes in Essex at the development will find Taylor Wimpey’s fantastic easymover scheme takes all the stress out of selling their old home – as the leading housebuilder can find a buyer for them in a matter of weeks!

However, potential buyers will need to act quickly to secure their place at Scholars Mews – as the development of property for sale in Braintree is proving incredibly popular with savvy purchasers.

Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “With a strictly limited number of properties available at Scholars Mews, it’s vital that anyone hoping to choose one of the beautiful brand new homes at this stunning development acts without delay.

“However they shouldn’t worry about their circumstances standing in the way of their dream move – whether they are struggling to make that first step on the property ladder or worried about selling their existing home – as we can offer them the helping hand they need to start a new life at this stunning development.”

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.

Alternatively, under easymover, purchasers can take their pick from a choice of family-size homes at Scholars Mews and then let Taylor Wimpey help find a buyer for their current property, usually within a matter a weeks.

Ninety per cent of properties are sold successfully through the initiative, the typical timescale from sale to exchange of contracts is just 10 weeks, and Taylor Wimpey can even cover the cost of estate agents’ fees.

There’s a stunning selection of new homes currently available at Scholars Mews, including the three-bedroom ‘Denford’ semi-detached house priced at just £238,995, and a choice of four-bedroom houses from only £272,995.

The ‘Kempsford’, for example, is a spacious four-bedroom link-detached property, priced at just £272,995, which occupies a peaceful location in the corner of this secluded cul-de-sac. It features a spacious living/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a contemporary fitted kitchen and handy guest cloakroom located off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the landing leads to the en-suite master bedroom, three further bedrooms and a main bathroom, while outside, the property benefits from a car port and allocated parking.

Scholars Mews is conveniently located in Deerleap Way within the prestigious Kings Park Village just to the east of Braintree town centre, and is bordered by the highly successful Lyons Hall Primary School. Within walking distance is a Tesco supermarket and the Marks Farm Community Centre, which offers pre-school facilities.

Footpaths and cycleways link to the town centre to the west and to the River Blackwater and picturesque countryside to the north.

Braintree itself is a bustling town which boasts a choice of schools for all ages, as well as a wealth of shops, restaurants and bars. Meanwhile Freeport designer outlet village on the outskirts of the town boasts about 90 stores offering designer stock at factory prices.

Two railway stations, Braintree and Braintree Freeport, are both just over a mile from the new homes, and offer regular services into London Liverpool Street in about an hour, while the A12, the M11 and the M25 are all within easy reach. For international travel, Stansted Airport is just 19 miles away.
