A series of incredible star-buys have been revealed by Taylor Wimpey at Hopefield Grange in Bonnyrigg that offer a dazzling step onto the property ladder for first-time buyers or young families looking to maximise their budget and make their dream move to a new home this year.

The practical two bedroom Andrew mid-terrace home is now available for just £152,000 – or using Taylor Wimpey’s shared equity scheme buyers could be be on the move for just £129,200*. This star-buy plot comes complete with a furniture pack that offers young buyers everything they need to furnish their home including pots and pans for their fully-fitted kitchen, and bedlinen for the free bedroom furniture that’s even made-up for them on move-in day!

For buyers looking for something a bit larger, the three bedroom Balfour end terrace home is now available for sale for just £177,000. This star-buy new home comes complete with flooring throughout as well as turf to the rear garden, plus buyers can take advantage of MI New Home – the Scottish Government supported scheme which offers access to upto 95% mortgages.

Both featured homes can be secured with just a £99 reservation fee – a saving on the normal fee of £500.

Shared Equity offers buyers the chance to secure their new dream home for only 85%* of the purchase price. Homeowners have the reassurance that they own 100% of their property from day one but as they’ll already have paid a 5% deposit, they only need to find a mortgage on 80% of the value. The other 15% is provided rent and interest free by Taylor Wimpey for up to ten years, at which point purchasers repay 15% of their home’s current market value. The scheme is flexible, allowing purchasers to repay the outstanding amount early or even make smaller one-off payments up to three times during the ten year period.

Karen Armstrong, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland adds: “We recognise that buying a home can be a financially daunting prospect for many and we want to ensure that buyers know about our latest deals to help them get on the move and save some money at Hopefield Grange in Bonnyrigg. We have already helped hundreds of buyers to get on to the property ladder, and the release of our starbuy new homes for this year at Hopefield Grange offers an excellent opportunity to get buyers on the move sooner than they thought.”
