An event is being organised by the team at Bath’s leading new property development that will enable those looking to trade up the property ladder, first time buyers and those just looking for a new home find out how they can make their house buying dream a reality.
Open to anyone who wants advice on how to go about buying a new home, experts from the legal and mortgage sector will be on hand to show that moving isn’t perhaps as daunting as some might think.
Taking place on Saturday 2 June at Bath Riverside, the open event is seen as the ideal foundation to moving, particularly for first time buyers who want to get all the information on buying their first home.
Danielle Simpson from Crest Nicholson said: “Contrary to what many believe, living by the river in Bath is much more affordable than what many think.
“Popping in and exploring the options in terms of buying will, I’m sure, open up the eyes and minds of many who have considered a move.
“To have professionals from all aspects of the property sector on hand, under one roof, is an opportunity not to be missed. There’s no obligation, just a chance to have a chat and find out more.
“There are lots and lots of solutions for first time buyers from developer offers and the Government’s Help-to-Buy scheme which places properties well within reach. All buyers have to do is come in and ask.”
With Help to Buy house hunters can secure a property with a five per cent deposit. They could soon find themselves lapping up a way of life that can only be found at the world heritage city’s most prominent new property development.
Open to anyone buying a new property, under Help to Buy the Government will lend up to 20 per cent of the value of the property through an interest-free equity loan.
This means the purchaser will have to pay 80 per cent the cost of the property – made up of a 75 per cent mortgage and five per cent deposit.
For example when purchased under Help-to-Buy, one of the apartments currently available at the development will cost £280,000 (a 20 per cent reduction off the £350,000 list price) with purchasers needing a deposit of £17,500.
Danielle added: “There are a number of factors that set Bath Riverside apart and is why it appeals to people wanting to live here. It’s very close to the city-centre so residents can easily walk to work, the shops or to catch a train.
“Developer Crest Nicholson also has a range of offers in place that makes the moving process that much easier. All they have to do is ask.
“We now hope to see as many would-be property owners here on 2 June when they really will find out how they can.”
