“We were fed up of renting as we knew it was dead money and when we heard that we could get a 5% deposit, we just had to take advantage of it as we didn’t know if an opportunity like this would come around again. We both wanted to live around Portishead Marina so we spent a lot of time visiting the various different developments on offer, but it was Taylor Wimpey’s development that we liked the best.
“The apartments and room sizes were a lot bigger than the others and the fixtures and fittings seemed to be better quality. I loved that the apartment lounge was so big you could separate it into a lounge and dining room. Most importantly for us was that the Altus development was by far better value for money than the other developers and it made our move a lot more affordable.
“The sales consultant on site was really helpful and took us through the whole buying process. Buying a property was new to both of us, so we are glad there was someone who could guide us through it. We have now brought a beautiful two bedroom apartment and we can’t wait to move in. The development is lovely and we are right by the sea and close to work, we couldn’t have asked for any more. If it wasn’t for the 5% deposit scheme, we would have never been able to move so quickly.”
