The Dales show home launch and help for first time buyers could secure your move

Do you imagine yourself in a brand new home in a fabulous location, but feel that as a first time buyer this could be out of your reach - with a deposit to find and the mortgage to arrange?

Equally, you may be an existing homeowner looking to move, but feel a brand new property is out of reach.

Well, with some forward thinking and a little financial planning, purchasing a brand new home can be more achievable than you initially think in 2017, say Linden Homes West Yorkshire.

The popular Help to Buy scheme is currently available at The Dales, located in the pretty village of Morton-on-Swale – where a stunning show home is being unveiled this month.

The four-bedroom detached Burghley is a family friendly home boasting open plan kitchen / dining area with a bay window, spacious living room and master bedroom with ensuite – as well as single garage.

The development itself offers a stunning range of three and four-bedroom homes, and is perfectly positioned just a stone’s throw from North Allerton, within easy reach for the A1(M) and A19 – ideal for commuters.

The selection of homes, built in a number of designs, currently range in price from £209,950 to £379,950.

However, there is the chance to curb the cost of moving to The Dales by using Help to Buy.

In many cases, the scheme not only gives first time buyers a footing on the housing ladder, but offers many purchasers the chance to get more home for their money – particularly with the requirement of just a five per cent deposit.

Here’s how it works:

Help to buy is available on new build homes up to £600,000
Purchasers need a minimum five per cent deposit.
All homebuyers could be eligible, not just first-time buyers.
The government will lend you up to 20 per cent of the value of your new build property through an equity loan, which can be repaid at any time or on the sale of your home. This loan is not available on second hand homes.
Buyers will only need to secure up to a 75 per cent mortgage from a bank or building society.

Linden Homes West Yorkshire Connections and Marketing Manager Pat Tennyson said: “We recognise some of the hurdles first time buyers and existing homeowners may face throughout their house buying journey, and we will do our utmost to make sure the process is as smooth as possible.

“This can range from helping them to secure the best mortgage deals through the experts we use, to incentives to help to curb the cost of moving – often leading to the customer being able to buy more property for their money.”

The Dales sales and marketing suite is open from Thursday to Monday from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively, visit The team looks forward to welcoming visitors during the show home launch weekend January 28/29.
