Deposit Match helped me buy my first home at Woodlands

Date: Monday 14 March 2011

“The setting for Woodlands is fantastic. It’s not only close to Hemel Hempstead town centre and the railway station, it’s also an area where I spend most of my time for its pubs, the cricket club, and because many of my friends live in the area.

“I was also impressed by the prices of Taylor Wimpey’s apartments, and the fact they could offer me their Deposit Match incentive. This meant that I could put down 20% of the purchase price straight away, even though I only had 10% saved.

“I’ve never lived in a new build home before, but it’s really appealing. Living in a house-share with friends is good fun, but once we’d reached our thirties we decided the time was right to take the next step.

“My apartment is a great plot in a woodland area and there’s plenty of open space in the grounds of the building. I can see myself living here very comfortably during my thirties!”
