Miller Homes East Midlands is using Easter weekend to help first time buyers in Leicestershire spring onto the property ladder.

A FirstBuy weekend will be held at the popular Stretton Glen development, in the village of Great Glen, on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 April.

It will provide an opportunity for those looking to make their first move to find out all about the FirstBuy initiative. There will also be the chance to discuss ways of turning the dream of owning a property into an affordable reality with a Miller Homes sales advisor.

FirstBuy is a scheme designed to help first time buyers into affordable home ownership, with 10,500 buyers expected to use it to get onto the property ladder in the next two years. Those qualifying for the scheme will be able to purchase 100 per cent of their home by paying up to 80 per cent of the value now, with both Miller Homes and the Government equally funding the remaining 20 per cent in the form of an equity loan.

Commenting on the forthcoming FirstBuy weekend, Paul Walters, regional sales manager for Miller Homes in the East Midlands, said: “There are lots of people who aspire to become a homeowner, but want to feel confident and secure in their decision, after all, buying a home is a very big step. FirstBuy makes the process even easier and it’s already helped hundreds of people purchase a property from Miller Homes.

“We wanted to offer first time buyers an opportunity to come and talk to us about the options they have and also to take a look at the properties that will be available via FirstBuy at Stretton Glen.

“As it’s Easter weekend, there will also be a selection of chocolate treats and other Easter goodies thrown in for good measure.”

Since opening at the end of last year, Stretton Glen has quickly become one of Miller Homes’ most popular developments. Situated in Great Glen, the development combines village living with a convenient location close to the centre of Leicester.

Amongst the properties available via FirstBuy at Stretton Glen is the Hawthorne style home. With prices starting from £175,000 or £140,000 with FirstBuy, this three-bedroom property benefits from a light, airy lounge with French doors into the garden, and a luxurious master bedroom with en-suite shower room.
