Househunters in Leicestershire looking to land their dream home can take advantage of a Help to Buy weekend being hosted by a regional builder this weekend (September 30).
Persimmon Homes North Midlands is holding an event at its Meadowcroft development in Brookside, East Leake, Loughborough on Saturday and Sunday.
The focus will fall on Help to Buy and Home Change, two schemes that have proved popular with both first-time and existing homeowners.
Independent financial advisers will be on hand to discuss the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme. People buying a new build only need a five per cent deposit along with a 75 per cent mortgage while the Government supplies a 20 per cent equity loan, which is interest and repayment free for the first five years.
Nadine O’Dowd, sales director for Persimmon Homes North Midlands, said: “First-time buyers find Help to Buy especially useful to take that first step onto the property ladder, as many of them fear they will never raise a huge deposit.
“People can so easily become trapped in the rental market, paying out large monthly amounts that leave little scope to raise the deposit they need to buy their own home. Buyers reserving certain plots could be in for Christmas too.
“Under Home Change, which can be used in conjunction with Help to Buy, we use all our expertise and contacts to help sell our buyer’s current home. We will arrange the valuations, agree a price and then market the property on their behalf. There are no estate agent fees or headaches - everything is taken care of. Our sales advisors will be on hand throughout the event to give people any information they need.”
Other events are taking place at Persimmon’s Regents Place development off off Swarkstone Road, Chellaston and the Canalside development off Princess Way, Burton upon Trent.
