Help to Buy explained in Rochdale

Homebuyers will be able to learn how Help to Buy could make owning a brand new home in Rochdale easier to afford with a visit to Birch Grange this Sunday (June 16).

The Government-backed Help to Buy scheme is available on all new homes at Birch Grange

It offers those with a 5% deposit the chance to cut the cost of homeownership with the aid of an equity loan.

To explain how the scheme works, Redrow is hosting a special event this Sunday.

Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), commented: “We’ve had an excellent response to the introduction of Help to Buy across the region and seen an upsurge in the number of enquiries from would-be home owners. Many of them have gone on to reserve one of our homes and we’re working with others to help them get the new home they want.

“While people are aware of the scheme, some don’t realise that it’s not just for first time buyers but can be used by other purchasers such as families in need of extra space. This Sunday we’ll be guiding visitors to Birch Grange through Help to Buy and explaining how they could use it to become the owner of one of our New Heritage Collection homes and enjoy substantial savings off the initial purchase price.” 

Located in Birch Road, Wardle features three and four-bedroom homes. Prices start from £179,995 or an initial outlay of only £143,996 using the equity loan.

The Help to Buy price is made up of a 5% deposit from the customer of £9,000 and a mortgage of 134,996, which amounts to 75% of the property’s full value. The remaining share is covered by the equity loan, which is interest free for five years and can be repaid when the customer has more funds available or when they resell.

Despite the lower price, Help to Buy customers enjoy all the benefits of those who purchase a new Redrow home at full market value. They’ll still own a home that boasts Redrow’s high specification as standard, including a beautiful kitchen that’s well equipped with integrated top brand name appliances, plus bathrooms and en-suites with quality fixtures and fittings and an exclusive tile range.

To find out how you could own a brand new Redrow home with Help to Buy, visit Birch Grange this Sunday.
