Homebuyers helped to secure first Colchester property

Date: Thursday 27 September 2012

“We started to look at buying about two years ago, but we couldn’t afford a deposit, even though we’d been trying to save for ages.

“The mortgage was never going to be an issue but we just couldn’t get the £20,000 to £25,000 downpayment we were being asked for.

“We couldn’t even get enough for a two-bedroom home, whereas with NewBuy we’ve been able to afford a three-bedroom detached house with a garden and garage. It’s a proper family home and it’s ours because of Taylor Wimpey and NewBuy.

“We were really pleased to get one of the detached houses at The Quarters. It has the space we wanted because although we haven’t got any children at the moment, our future plans are to have a family.  

“I’m really pleased with how the house is coming on. I go down every week to see how the building work is progressing. The development is nicely laid out, with lots of space and it’s looking really good.”
