The West End lifestyle without the price tag

17th July 2009 Print
The West End lifestyle without the price tag A new release of two and three bedroom apartments is now available at George Wimpey’s Kelvindale Glade development, off Kelvindale Road in Glasgow. With its luxurious specification already proving popular with customers who’re keen to own a slice of life at this contemporary and well-located development, and the availability of the company’s Deposit Match incentive – it’s a great time to check out the latest apartments.

Kelvindale Glade is within easy travelling distance from the city centre of Glasgow, and offers an exciting choice of two and three bedroom apartments, with prices starting from just £150,000. The development also boasts a quiet, waterside location with the River Kelvin, the Forth and Clyde canals and their peaceful waterways and walkways just a few minutes away. A contemporary two bedroom show apartment reveals a spacious and well-proportioned property that’s been carefully and thoughtfully styled to show prospective customers just how comfortable life could be here at Kelvindale Glade and it is well worth a visit.

Deposit Match is a new scheme being offered at selected developments throughout the west of Scotland, including George Wimpey’s Kelvindale Glade development in Glasgow, which opens the door to more affordable mortgages. On selected properties, the house builder will match the deposit put down by buyers, up to 10 per cent of the property’s value, providing access to a wider range of mortgages, better interest rates and reduced monthly payments.

The scheme is extremely simple – buyers are given the Deposit Match amount in the form of an interest-free loan over 10 years. They own 100 per cent of their property and there is no rent or interest to pay during the loan period. Purchasers are guided through the scheme by Taylor Wimpey’s appointed independent financial advisors and solicitors.

Deposit Match is a great way for buyers to get on the move as Audrey Ross, regional sales and marketing director, explains: “With the availability and affordability of mortgages being a major concern, this scheme goes a long way to addressing these problems. Deposit Match allows buyers to boost the funds they have available with an interest free loan, which increases the number of mortgage deals available and reduces their monthly repayments. Plus, we also have a range of other incentives available to help first time buyers get on to the property ladder that includes stamp duty and legal fees paid.”

This area is already a popular and sought-after location and appeals to a wide range of customers, and our latest release of two and three bedroom apartments offer a great chance to own your own home without the typical ‘west-end’ price tag as Audrey continues: “Kelvindale Glade’s proximity to both Glasgow University and Gartnavel Hospital make it attractive to a wide range of buyers including parents looking to financially support their children with a property purchase, as well as student nurses and young doctors working, living and studying in the area. Our Deposit Match scheme creates the perfect opportunity for this range of buyers to make the move onto the property ladder.”
