First time buyer finds perfect home with Lovell

A first time buyer from Telford has recently moved into a new home at Lovell’s The Oaklands development in Dawley.

25 year old Alex McClony has recently bought a three bedroom semi-detached Westwood house style at The Oaklands development as his first home.

After renting for many years, Database Administrator Alex decided to take the next step and purchase his own home in Telford, using the Government backed Help to Buy scheme.

Alex said: “I am from the area and I wanted somewhere that is my own. This was the perfect size, and with the Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme it was very affordable which was the main selling point for me.

“I loved the house from the start, especially the ensuite, garden and garage. I have found that being new build the property is much more energy efficient than my previous home, which is also a bonus.

“My friends and family really like it. The house is twice the size of my previous home which is great for visitors. I finally feel as though I’d made a great investment, and am not just wasting money on rent.” 

Alex wasn’t initially searching for a new build, however the affordability of homes and location of The Oaklands development was too hard to deny.

Located on Matlock Avenue, The Oaklands is a delightful development of 44 two and three bedroom homes.

Alex lives in a Westwood style home, which includes a double oven, integrated fridge freezer, vinyl flooring in the kitchen and bathroom, a built in wardrobe in bedroom one, and more added qualities.

Perfect for first time buyers, Lovell offers the best specification of houses in the Telford area.

With excellent transport links and surroundings, The Oaklands is the ideal place for commuters and young professionals, as well as young families looking to settle.

Alex concluded, “The Lovell staff were very helpful before and during the move. If ever I needed them they were always there, and communication was consistent.”

With prices starting from £129,950, the homes are available to purchase with the Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme. The scheme allows homebuyers to buy a new home under the value of £600,000 with just a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage, with the final 20% made up by an equity loan provided by the Government. First time buyers looking for their new home in Telford only need a deposit of £6,498 for a house priced at £129,950.
