Ticking all the boxes was Stamford Homes’ Ferriby Rise development in the Scartho Top area of Grimsby – where they bought a brand new four-bedroom home under the Government’s shared equity scheme.
The family were moving out of rented accommodation elsewhere in Grimsby, and came to visit Stamford Homes.
“With a young family, it was highly important that we found the perfect location – in terms of schools, the surrounding area and being close to my place of work,” said Dr Makki, a doctor currently working at Grimsby’s Diana Princess of Wales Hospital.
“I visited Stamford Homes and the surrounding area several times, and all the pieces of the puzzle began to fit together,” he added.
Formerly living in Hull, Dr Makki and his wife Tara bought their home through HomeBuy Direct, an initiative that allows customers to own 100 per cent of the home at just 70 per cent of the price.
The remaining 30 per cent is met equally by the Government and Stamford Homes by means of a repayable loan.
Tara – mum to three boys aged five, three and 10-months, added: “HomeBuy Direct was wonderful. It allowed us to buy a high standard and quality home in a great location without being financially exhausted.”
Ferriby Rise currently offers a range of spacious four-bedroom semi detached and detached homes in a sought-after area of Grimsby.
Perfect for people looking to stay relatively local, the competitive prices also mean that customers are able to upgrade to a larger home with ease.
Prices currently start from £169,950 and HBD is available on selected homes. The sales and marketing suite is open from Thursday to Monday from 10.30am until 5pm, alternatively contact the sales team on 01472 753295.
