Following recent reports that aspiring home owners face an eight-and-a-half year wait to save the deposit they need to get on the property ladder*, Crest Nicholson is pleased to be able to offer buyers a helping hand at its Aldermere development in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire with a variety of mortgage schemes and purchase incentives. Buyers of the two and three-bedroom homes can choose to benefit from either the mortgage subsidy or part-exchange schemes, or through the Government-backed FirstBuy scheme.
With the mortgage subsidy scheme, Crest Nicholson will pay £500 per month towards mortgage repayments for a year, thereby freeing up funds to spend on furnishing the property and making the house a home. Alternatively, buyers can purchase through the Government-backed FirstBuy scheme, whereby first time buyers can purchase a new property at just 80% of the price. This scheme is only available on new build properties and means that buyers can make that first step to home ownership whilst enjoying the many benefits associated with new build homes, such as lower energy bills and low maintenance costs.
Part Exchange is an initiative designed to help existing home-owners buy and move into a brand new Crest Nicholson home without the delays and stresses normally associated with moving house. Purchasers just need to identify the Crest Nicholson property they wish to buy, the developer will then arrange for three estate agents to assess and value their existing property. Once the offer has been accepted on the current home, Crest Nicholson will then reserve the desired new property and guide purchasers through the buying process; it realty is that straight forward.
Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, comments, “Crest Nicholson is very aware that buyers are finding it difficult to either get onto or climb the property ladder and we have always offered a range of schemes designed to help struggling buyers. They have proven highly popular at all of our sites in Hertfordshire and further afield and have enabled many buyers to own their own home when they would otherwise have been unable to.”
For those concerned about the cost of furnishing a new home, Crest Nicholson is offering a furniture pack in the two-bedroom coach houses. These homes are sold as seen and come complete with all furniture and furnishings, as well as fixtures and fittings. Accessories for each room of the house are also included, such as kitchen utensils, including pots and pans, and bedding, meaning that buyers have can move into a beautiful new home without worrying about the expense of kitting it out.
