First-time buyers have a chance to step on the property ladder with ease at Taylor Wimpey's Jubilee Gardens development of new homes for sale in Walsall.

Taylor Wimpey is offering aspiring first-time buyers a leg up on to the property ladder at its sought-after Jubilee Gardens development of properties in Walsall.

Under the popular Government-backed FirstBuy initiative, selected new homes in Walsall can be purchased by qualifying first-time buyers for 80% of their full price, including a 5% deposit, subject to status.

The spacious two-bedroom 'Appleford' starter property in Walsall, priced from £111,995, is just one of the homes which can be accessed under FirstBuy at Jubilee Gardens for an 80% price of only £89,596, with a deposit as low as £5,600.

Anne Wallace, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Walsall, says: "This is a great opportunity for first-time buyers to snap up a superb two-bedroom home at Jubilee Gardens much sooner than they might have otherwise thought possible.

"The fact that loans to first-time buyers in October increased by nearly 20%* on the previous year shows that more and more savvy purchasers are becoming able to take that first step onto the property ladder.

"This means would-be buyers will need to get in quick to ensure they secure their choice of our properties for sale in Walsall, so I'd advise anyone hoping to take advantage of FirstBuy at Jubilee Gardens to act now - or risk missing out."

FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency and Taylor Wimpey, which is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or when the property is sold. To be eligible, purchasers must be first-time buyers and their total household earnings should be less than £60,000.

Ideal for couples or young families, the two-bedroom 'Appleford' starter home features an open-plan kitchen/dining/living room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the landing leads to two well-proportioned bedrooms and a main bathroom, while two allocated parking spaces are located outside.

Alternative two-bedroom designs are priced from £125,995 at Jubilee Gardens, with three-bedroom properties on sale from as little as £154,995.

All homes at the development are completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.

Jubilee Gardens enjoys a convenient location in an established residential area off Bloxwich Road, Walsall, with easy access to a host of nearby facilities including schools for children of all ages, shops, pubs and restaurants as well as green open spaces.

Pleasant walks can be taken along the nearby Wyrley and Essington Canal, which forms part of the historic Birmingham Canal Navigations.

Less than 20 minutes from Birmingham and benefiting from good education, health, transport, leisure and art facilities - as well as attractive woodland, commons and canals - Walsall boasts a diverse and stimulating town centre which lies just a little over a mile from Jubilee Gardens.

Commuters will appreciate that Jubilee Gardens lies just a short distance from junction 10 of the M6, while train services from Walsall railway station to Birmingham New Street take just under half an hour.

First-time buyers can find out more about securing a brand new home with FirstBuy by visiting the Jubilee Gardens Sales Centre, located at Norfolk Place, off Bloxwich Road, Walsall, and open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm.
