New Acres to host Help to Buy event this weekend
Newly released homes at Carlisle development available to reserve with just £250 during January
Lovell Homes is hosting a Help to Buy event for prospective purchasers at its New Acres development in Carlisle this weekend. And those wishing to reserve their new home will be able to do so on the day and throughout January with just £250.
The event on Saturday 26 January from 11am to 4pm will give homebuyers in Carlisle the opportunity to meet with a mortgage expert for free, impartial advice on how the government’s Help to Buy:Equity Loan scheme can help them get onto the property ladder with a deposit of just 5%. Booking an appointment in advance is recommended and can be arranged by contacting the New Acres marketing suite on 01228 371 670.
With Help to Buy: Equity Loan, the homeowner requires a mortgage for 75% of the property value with the government providing an equity loan to cover the remaining 20%, which is interest free for five years. And with no stamp duty to pay for purchasers who have not previously owned a home, these homes can become a reality in 2019 for buyers who may previously have thought they were out of their reach.
Highly Commended at 2018’s prestigious First Time Buyer Awards, a number of new homes have now been released in the final phase of New Acres including perfect starter homes - the two-bedroom Singleton and three-bedroom Berkley.
The Berkley, priced from £135,000, offers stylish living and exceptional value. It features an open-plan kitchen/diner, electric fan oven and gas hob, integrated fridge freezer, ceramic floor tiling to the kitchen and bathroom and a paved driveway with parking for one car. Using Help to Buy: Equity Loan, the Berkley can be purchased with a deposit of just £6750.
All properties at New Acres feature the same high quality specification and finishes that come as standard in Lovell Homes, including spacious kitchen layouts, luxury en-suite bathrooms and off-road parking.
The contemporary layout of the homes at New Acres has proved particularly popular with buyers, alongside the inclusion of ovens and white goods which further reduces initial costs, and the opportunity to personalise their home before they move in, avoiding the later hassle and expense of DIY.
Situated in an established residential area of Carlisle, New Acres is close to a great selection of local shops, schools and parks.
Anne-Marie O’Doherty, regional sales director for Lovell North West said: “Our Help to Buy event is the perfect opportunity for potential home buyers to find out how this government scheme could help make moving to New Acres a reality in 2019. A financial advisor and our experienced sales team will be on-hand to advise visitors and for those who wish to reserve on the day or before the end of the January, they can do so with just £250.
“Given the location, affordability and spec, our homes at New Acres have been incredibly popular, so we’d advise prospective purchasers to move quickly to secure a home at this award-winning development.”
The Help to Buy event will take place at the New Acres marketing suite, 28 Latrigg Road, Carlisle, CA2 7FB.
