This New Year it seems like everyone is off to the gym or searching for the perfect job. This year, instead of rehashing the same old resolutions, make a date with Taylor Wimpey to put a fresh start in a brand new home at the top of your list and make 2013 your best year yet.

This New Year it seems like everyone is off to the gym or searching for the perfect job. This year, instead of rehashing the same old resolutions, make a date with Taylor Wimpey to put a fresh start in a brand new home at the top of your list and make 2013 your best year yet.

January is the perfect time to start the search for your new home and Taylor Wimpey is offering a range of incentives at its developments right across Scotland to help buyers beat those post-Christmas blues and get on or move up the property ladder.

Buyers can take advantage of the newly-launched and Scottish Government supported MI New Home scheme which offers up to 95% loan to value mortgages on properties up to £250,000. Or, for a limited period, Taylor Wimpey will buy your existing home through its Part Exchange scheme which is available on selected plots, making a move to a new home easier than ever.

Alternatively, buyers can use Taylor Wimpey's Easystart Shared Equity scheme which has been hugely successful and is available on selected new homes and apartments up to the value of £170,000. It means that customers can buy a new home for just 85% of the purchase price on selected plots for a limited period. Homeowners have the reassurance that they own 100% of their property from day one but as they'll already have paid a 5% deposit, they only need to find a mortgage on 80% of the value. The other 15% is provided rent and interest free by Taylor Wimpey for up to ten years, at which point purchasers repay 15% of their home's current market value.

The scheme is flexible, allowing purchasers to repay the outstanding amount early or even make smaller one-off payments up to three times during the ten year period.

Plus, for all reservations by 31 January, 2012 buyers will also receive free carpets throughout their new home.

Audrey Ross, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland said: "When people make life-changing resolutions it is usually a concerted effort to go to the gym or a career change that is seen as the answer to the break from the old routine. But a new home can completely change your perspective and the New Year is the perfect time to make the move.

"People's wallets often feel the pinch at this time of year, so we have a range of incentives and schemes to help you make a fresh start in a new dream home, whatever your circumstances. Whether you're a first time buyer struggling to save a big deposit, or need a bigger home for the family but can't sell your existing property; come and talk to our experienced team of sales advisors to see how we can help make buying a new home one resolution you don't break this year."
