WHILE recent research suggests that first time buyers face a 10-year wait to step onto the housing ladder, Linden Homes is making moving easier and more affordable in 2013.
According to a study carried out by Post Office mortgages, most FTBs believe they will be 35 years old before they are able to buy their first home – with raising a deposit the biggest barrier.
However, the Linden Homes-backed FirstBuy scheme means those taking their first steps onto the housing ladder can do so more affordably, and buy more home for their money.
The government’s FirstBuy initiative has been designed for buyers who have found large deposits required for mortgages a problem when thinking about purchasing.
In a nutshell, the scheme allows eligible buyers to own 100 per cent of their new home but pay as little as 80 per cent of the price now.
FirstBuy allows customers to benefit in a number of ways.
The scheme is available at many of Linden Homes’ developments around the region, including Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.
And there are numerous other benefits to buying a brand new home as opposed to a second hand one.
