Find out how you could reduce the initial cost of your new home by almost £65,000 through HomeBuy Direct at an open day in Hailsham on Saturday, April 30.

Redrow Homes is hosting a HomeBuy Direct weekend at Willow Gardens, for home owners who want to own 100% of their home but pay only 70% now, through the Government-backed scheme.

It’s available on selected properties at Willow Gardens and an independent financial advisor will be on hand to provide impartial advice on Saturday. There will also be a specialist HomeBuy agent available to offer assistance.

Beryl Williams, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (Eastern), explained: “Would-be homeowners only have until December to take advantage of HomeBuy Direct, which means there’s limited time to buy the home of your dreams at a more affordable price.”

Part of Redrow’s stunning New Heritage Collection, the homes at Willow Gardens combine the best of old and new. Traditional exteriors, inspired by the ‘character’ properties of the Arts and Crafts period, hide contemporary interiors designed for modern day life.

With the offer of an equity loan for up to 30% of the purchase price, jointly funded by Redrow and the Homes & Communities Agency, certain groups of purchasers can initially save almost a third off the price of one of these brand new homes. The loan is interest-free for the first five years and can be repaid when the customer has more funds available or they come to resell.

With HomeBuy Direct a three-bedroom ‘Broadway’ home, usually costing £214,950, can be snapped up for an initial outlay of less than £150,465 – that’s almost £65,000 less than usual. The offer is also available on other selected three-bedroom homes.

“HomeBuy Direct isn’t just for young first time buyers, it’s also available to those starting over after a relationship break-up and families who can prove they need extra space,” Beryl added.

“It could be the difference between resigning yourself to a lifetime of renting or stepping onto the property ladder with a home of your own.

“Customers who take advantage of HomeBuy Direct should only need a relatively small deposit and to apply for a mortgage with a maximum loan-to-value of 70%. This will generally give them access to much improved mortgage interest rates.”

Whether you’re starting out or starting over, Redrow’s experienced sales team and HomeBuy agent will guide you through the application process and make everything as simple and straight-forward as possible.

To take advantage of HomeBuy Direct your annual household income must be less than £60,000.

Located on the A22, just eight miles from Eastbourne, about 25 miles from Royal Tunbridge Wells and a similar distance from Brighton, Willow Gardens is well placed as a base for commuters, but has plenty of amenities nearby in Hailsham itself.
