“I’d been looking at houses for about a year and it was my mum who spotted the advert for Jubilee Gardens in the local paper. I didn’t think I would be able to afford a property here, but with Help to Buy it has all been so easy.
Because I’m a first-time buyer I wasn’t in a chain so when my offer was accepted the paperwork all went through really quickly. Cath at the Sales Centre was really good. Buying your first home could be really nerve-racking, but she was great at talking me through it all.
I looked around the showhome and decided on the property I wanted and it has been finished to a very high standard. I had been looking at second-hand houses for sale at auction, but I’m pleased I decided to buy a new-build home in the end. It’s just what I wanted.”
