Looking for a helping hand to buy a new home? Make it yours at Waters Edge

Would-be homebuyers looking for a little help to secure their perfect property are being urged to ‘Make It Yours’ using the fantastic Government-backed Help to Buy scheme at Taylor Wimpey’s Waters Edge development in Hinckley.

Help to Buy enables eligible first-time buyers and those with a property to sell to secure a Government loan for up to 20% of the full price of their new home – meaning they only need a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a deposit as low as 5%!

Taylor Wimpey’s Make It Yours initiative aims to show homebuyers the many different ways the leading housebuilder can help them make an easy and affordable move to their ideal home.

Now is a great time for purchasers to buy a new home, with reduced stamp duty for many and the Bank of England keeping the base rate at an historic low of 0.5%, which means that there are great mortgage deals to be had.

Mariana Knight, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Savvy purchasers will find that securing a stunning new home at Waters Edge is much easier and more affordable than they might think thanks to Help to Buy.

“This brilliant scheme is the perfect solution for aspiring buyers who are struggling to step on or up the property ladder. Help to Buy customers can secure their dream home with a smaller deposit then they might have thought, and then enjoy the benefits of lower monthly mortgage repayments.

“I’d urge anyone interested in snapping up their ideal place at Waters Edge to get in touch today and find out more about Help to Buy – and who knows, you could make a new home yours sooner than you thought!”

Help to Buy is available on new-build properties up to the value of £600,000 and there is no salary cap for customers who take advantage of the scheme.

There’s a superb selection of three bedroom homes currently available at Waters Edge, with prices starting from £181,995.

The gorgeous three-bedroom ‘Carrick’ is an ideal first home for individuals, couples or young families at Waters Edge.

This delightful home features a wonderful open-plan living/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, a contemporary fitted kitchen and a handy guest cloakroom located off the entrance hallway.

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

All Taylor Wimpey homes are completed to a high standard specification and are backed by a two-year Taylor Wimpey warranty and a 10-year guarantee from the National House-Building Council.

Waters Edge is an exciting new development on the western fringes of Hinckley, an attractive town which offers an excellent selection of facilities for day-to-day living, including shops and supermarkets, pubs and places to eat, medical facilities, a library, a theatre, and a leisure centre with swimming pool, fitness suite and sports hall.

Families will appreciate that schools for children of all ages are just a short distance away, including nearby Westfield Infant School, which was rated ‘outstanding’ in its most recent Ofsted inspection, and Redmoor Academy and John Cleveland College for older pupils, both rated ‘good’.

Hinckley lies 12 miles from both the cities of Coventry and Leicester, putting a wealth of high street stores, leisure and entertainment facilities within easy reach.

The A5 is close by for easy access to the M69, which links to the M1 and M6, while Hinckley railway station provides direct services to Leicester and Birmingham New Street, with connections to London St Pancras via Leicester.
