New homes in Soham now available with FirstBuy
Cambridgeshire property-seekers can secure their first home for less thanks to the FirstBuy scheme at Taylor Wimpey’s Lion Mills development of new homes for sale in Soham.
Aspiring homeowners are being urged not to miss out on a fantastic opportunity to step onto the property ladder at Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after Lion Mills development of new build homes in Soham, Cambridgeshire.
The Government-backed FirstBuy scheme lets qualifying purchasers secure selected apartments for sale in Soham at Lion Mills for just 80% of their full purchase price – including a deposit as low as 5%, subject to status.
Under FirstBuy, for example, a two-bedroom apartment at Lion Mills can be accessed by an eligible first-time buyer in search of property for sale in Soham for 80% of its £114,995 price tag – that’s just £91,996.
Taylor Wimpey and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) will 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 in Soham is sold. To be eligible for FirstBuy, customers must be first-time buyers with a household income below £60,000.
Stacy Dornan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “FirstBuy offers first-time buyers in search of flats for sale in Soham an easy route into home ownership, because it eliminates the need for the hefty deposits that most lenders are still insisting upon and would take years for most people to save up.
“However, with this amazing incentive available on a strictly limited selection of apartments in Soham at Lion Mills, now is the time for aspiring home-owners to take advantage of FirstBuy – before someone else beats them to it!”
