Help To Afford The Home You Want In Halesowen

Date: Friday 18 December 2009

Do you dream of buying your own home or moving up the property ladder but don’t think you can afford to? The sales team at our Henley Grange new build development in Halesowen can make your wish come true – but you need to get your skates on.

Taylor Wimpey is helping purchasers make their move by offering the Government’s HomeBuy Direct scheme at Henley Grange. The scheme is designed to help purchasers with a household income of less than £60,000 afford the home they want. An interest free equity loan is available for up to 30 percent of the value of the property, co-funded by the Homes and Communities Agency and Taylor Wimpey. For example, the initiative means that if you qualify for a mortgage of £140,000, you could buy a property worth up to £200,000.

However, there are just four homes left at Henley Grange under this scheme and with the stamp duty holiday coming to an end, VAT due to rise on the 1st January and house prices continuing to increase, we are urging purchasers to make their move now.

Anne Wallace, regional sales and marketing director, comments: “The HomeBuy Direct scheme is a great way for purchasers to afford their first home as it’s designed to overcome the hurdles of high mortgage costs and larger deposits, which we know are preventing many people from buying. If you’d like to make 2010 the year you move in to your dream home why not come along, take a look around our professionally designed Derwent show home and find out more?”

Henley Grange comprises a collection of 154 mews-style homes and contemporary apartments located within the established residential area of Belle Vale. The development enjoys a semi-rural feel with the River Stour close by and attractive woodland and public open space to the rear.
