5% was all it took for John Varney and Aoife Corbett to buy off plan in beautiful Gresham Mill

John and Aoife thought it would at least be a year or two before they could buy a home together, but when they heard about the New Buy scheme with only 5% deposit needed they immediately bought off plan and began the journey of personalising their new home as it was built with Linden Homes.

"I don't think we envisaged we'd only be needing 5% for a deposit. If we would have had to have saved up at least 10% then it would've been a year or two from now before we got that."
