First time buyers find dream home just in time to welcome first baby

Gemma Blackney and her partner Josh Stewart have started life as parents in their dream home at our Church View development in Hoo

Jubliee Gardens - Canford - Kids Bedroom

Dream family home

Whilst living with Gemma’s parents in Gravesend, the couple decided it was time to look for their first home after finding out they were expecting their first child. Gemma said: “Finding out I was pregnant gave us a kick start to our house hunting - we realised we needed a lot more room!”

Gemma and Josh used the Government backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan to help secure their home and haven’t looked back since moving in. Gemma says: “The Canford is exactly what we were looking for. It has two good sized double bedrooms and a large garden which can be unusual to find with new builds. There is a park directly opposite our home which we cannot wait to see Elsie play in and enjoy.”

Commenting on their buying journey with Taylor Wimpey, Josh said: “We first registered our interest online and within the hour had been contacted by the very helpful sales team. We explained our situation and the team assured us that they would try and get a completion so we could move in before Elsie arrived.”

Gemma added: “The sales team went above and beyond to make our move as smooth as possible. We have developed a great relationship with them and they even sent us their congratulations after Elsie was born. Buying your first home can be extremely stressful. Taylor Wimpey made the whole process smooth and stress free and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for us and watch our family grow.”
