Adrian Bird, sales and marketing director, at Linden Homes Western says: “In the case of the government’s NewBuy scheme, which we have available at all of our developments across the region, nearly 70 per cent of those who apply for a NewBuy mortgage get one – and that’s not just for first time buyers, it’s for anyone buying a new-build home.”
NewBuy is an innovative scheme designed to help those looking to move on to or up the property ladder with just a five-per-cent deposit, allowing buyers the opportunity to secure a 95-per-cent fixed-rate mortgage.
The news will be welcome for house hunters in the West Country, who are looking to secure a new property in 2013 and have previously struggled or received misleading advice which has prevented them from making that all-important first move.
Adrian continues: “NewBuy has helped many of our customers, but it isn’t the only incentive we offer. Assisted move, 100-per-cent part exchange, FirstBuy, Easy Start and Step Up, all play a positive part in boosting the local housing market and most importantly, enables local people to move.”
