Renter finds Easy Start onto the property ladder

Date: Tuesday 25 October 2011

“I’d been trying to get onto the property ladder for about five years but like a lot of first time buyers, I struggled to find a mortgage product because I only had 5% of the purchase price saved for a deposit and that didn’t seem to be enough.

“I was renting a property on the Thorntree Vale development but as rentals went up, I started to think again about buying, I was already impressed by the development and as soon as I spoke to the Sales Executive and saw the showhomes for the first time, I was absolutely blown away – three days later I’d reserved!

“The Sales Executive on the development explained the Easystart scheme to me which meant I only needed a 5% deposit anyway.

I have this scheme to thank for making it all possible and I moved into my brand new Arlington property just 4 weeks after viewing the showhome!

“I’m happily settled in my new four bedroom home now and only wish I’d done it sooner!”
