“We wanted to find somewhere special for our first home, but we initially thought we’d have to compromise either on the size of property we bought or the area.
“Thankfully Sara’s mum had heard about FirstBuy and it was great to learn that the scheme was available on the homes at Taylor Wimpey’s Highfield Gardens development in Edgbaston. It’s meant we’ve been able to buy a larger apartment in a great location – we can’t believe our luck!
“The Sales Executives at Highfield Gardens were really helpful, they talked us through the whole home-buying process and how FirstBuy works – it was so straightforward. We discussed the initial deposit required and what our monthly mortgage payments were likely to be, so it’s really helped us budget our finances.
“As we’re both originally from the region we know Edgbaston really well and we still can’t believe we’ll be living there in our very own home. Plus having an extra bedroom is a real bonus as we can use it as a guest room when friends stay over.”
