Under this incredible scheme, all the purchaser has to do is find a deposit of as little as 5% – only £4,887 – and George Wimpey’s appointed independent financial advisors will help arrange a mortgage covering 80% of the price of one of the selected new homes in Leighton Buzzard.
The remaining 15% equity is provided by the housebuilder in the form of an interest-free loan to boost the down-payment on the property, which can be repaid in up to three instalments over a 10-year period.
Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Our fabulous Easy Start initiative can make owning a home a reality for buyers in search of apartments for sale in Leighton Buzzard who would otherwise struggle to raise enough money for a deposit on their first home.
“The purchaser owns 100% of the property from day one and is free to make payments during the 10-year period to suit their individual circumstances in up to three instalments.
“However, property-seekers hoping to secure a brand new apartment using Easy Start at Catina Court should act quickly as they are proving incredibly popular with buyers looking for flats in Bedfordshire.”
Catina Court is a superb development of just 56 one and two-bedroom homes within walking distance of Leighton Buzzard town centre.
Situated off Stanbridge Road, the delightful homes have been thoughtfully designed with characteristic features including Juliet balconies, large feature windows, en-suite bathrooms and expansive living areas and are located within a welcoming courtyard layout.
Each apartment is ideal for first-time buyers to grab a foothold on the property ladder with extremely stylish interiors, modern fitted kitchens as standard and allocated parking.
Leighton Buzzard is home to a wide selection of high street and independent stores, a twice-weekly market and a wealth of pubs, restaurants, health clubs and leisure facilities. A choice of supermarkets, schools catering for children of all ages and health services are also located within walking distance of the development.
Quick links to London make the development highly desirable for commuters – the A5 and M1 are within easy reach, putting London just an hour away by car, while the town rail station offers regular services to London and the North.
Those travelling further afield will appreciate that Luton Airport is just 17 miles from the development.
