My partner Adam and I had been looking into buying a house for a while, but with such high deposit asking prices, we weren’t in a position to make that commitment, which is why the FirstBuy scheme at The Vistas was ideal.
The FirstBuy initiative allowed us to take advantage of putting down just a five per cent deposit, but owning 100 per cent of our property from day one, which is a great thing to be able to say at 23 years old.
After we’d settled in, we couldn’t wait to show off our new home to friends; as a lot of them are in similar positions to us and weren’t aware of their options. After hearing about the scheme some of them have already arranged viewings with Taylor Wimpey.
We’d definitely recommend the FirstBuy scheme, without it, we certainly wouldn’t be on the property ladder at this stage in our lives. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to call ourselves home-owners.
