Start the New Year with a new home in Salford thanks to Help to Buy

Posted on January 3rd, 2014

What better way to start 2014 than with a brand new home and it could be far easier than you think thanks to the current fantastic mortgages available on the Government Help to Buy scheme.

The Help to Buy scheme has helped thousands of buyers move in 2013 as it offers lower deposits and lower repayments than had previously been possible. The monthly cost of a mortgage has turned out to be cheaper than renting in many cases, making the decision to buy a practical and cost effective choice.

One such family are Nancy and Jonny and their little boy Tommy who moved from a 2 bedroom, rented property to a 3 bedroom, brand new Seddon home, whilst saving a staggering £100 a month in terms of mortgage versus rent alone, before taking into account a significant saving in energy bills.

The average age of first time buyers reached a frightening 32 in 2013. Thankfully the scheme has made it possible for people to move sooner thanks to the lower 5% deposit required and 95% mortgages available — Seddon Homes’ first time buyers Samantha and John bucked the trend and moved into their first home aged just 22 and 24.

When asked what piece of advice they would give to their friends John said “It would be to stop wasting your money on rent and buy using the Government Help to Buy scheme now.

“Get yourself on the property ladder as soon as possible and start investing in your future. We have the potential to have our mortgage paid off when we are in our 40s which makes our future feel so much more secure.”
