Buyers whose wish it is to get moving into a new home this New Year, are invited to attend Barratt Yorkshire East's unique First Time Buyer event at Lumley Park, where a range of fantastic schemes are being made available to get them into a dream home in 2013.
Thousands of First Time Buyers think that a home of their own is out of reach due to the recession, increasing criteria from mortgage lenders and the requirement of high deposits but Barratt is here to help.
The special event takes place on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd February and hopes to attract lots of buyers looking to take the step towards home ownership. Independent Financial Advisers and Barratt representatives will be available all weekend to tell buyers about the fantastic schemes on offer and each visitor will receive a goody bag.
One of the unmissable deals on offer is FirstBuy; a unique scheme that allows buyers to move into a new home for just 80 per cent of the purchase price. This highly successful scheme was designed to give first time buyers a route to home ownership at the lowest possible cost and with the lowest possible deposit. Buyers will be offered a loan of up to 20 per cent of the price of the property, jointly funded by Barratt and the Government's Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
For example a superb three bedroom Maidstone home can be snapped up for £128,796 (list price £160,995) with a deposit as low as £8049.
Savvy buyers will be thrilled to know that Barratt also has a selection of properties available under the Government's NewBuy scheme. NewBuy heralds the return of 95 per cent mortgages; making the move onto the property ladder a lot more affordable. This latest Government supported homes scheme allows purchasers to buy a new build home in England with a 95 per cent mortgage. The scheme is open to first time buyers and existing home owners, providing that they have a five per cent deposit.
Buyers who reserve a home throughout the special weekend will also benefit from free carpets or free appliances; sure to save them thousands throughout the decorating process.
Lumley Park is situated in the highly sought after area of Castleford and boasts a huge array of local amenities to suit the needs of young professionals, couples and growing families.
Buyers can enjoy a host of leisure activities on their doorstep, with Castleford's famous sports, retail and leisure centre Xscape just moments away as well as great transport links to other nearby cities like Leeds and Wakefield. Prices start at just £160,995.
Annie, Sales Adviser for Lumley Park commented: "This is a great opportunity for buyers struggling to get onto the property ladder. Our house prices are lower than ever which means luxury really is affordable in the current market place."
"Anyone interested in owning a home at Lumley Park needs to hurry as there is limited time to benefit from the FirstBuy scheme."
