Help to Buy focus for special Widnes weekend

House hunters are being invited to a special event to find out how they can take that first step onto the property ladder or move up a rung with only a small deposit.

Help to Buy is a government scheme that means prospective buyers and existing home owners can buy many of Redrow’s properties in Widnes with just a 5% deposit.

Visitors to Lancaster Place and Barrow’s Green on February 22/23 will be able to talk to experts and find out more about the scheme and how it can help them secure a brand new home.

Anita Williams, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “Help to Buy is giving first time buyers and families a vital boost. We’ve been experiencing high demand so far and we’d like to invite more people to come and take advantage of this easy way to buy. At the same time visitors can take a look at our homes and see what financial options are available to them.

“There is a wide selection of homes available in Widnes from Redrow’s award-winning Heritage Collection which combines traditional exteriors with 21st century interiors. There is something for everyone whether it’s a first-time purchase or families wishing to upsize. And, thanks to Help to Buy, these homes are now within reach.”                                                                

At Barrow’s Green and Lancaster Place, a collection of three and four-bedroom homes are available under the scheme.

For example the four-bedroom detached ‘Stratford’ at Barrow’s Green boasts attractive gardens, an open-plan kitchen and dining room and a price tag of just £232,995. Available through Help to Buy, this same home could be purchased for just £186,396, including a deposit of just £11,650, with the remainder covered by an equity loan for £46,599 from the Government.

The Help to Buy weekend will be held at Barrow’s Green, off Barrow’s Green Road, and Lancaster Place, off Lunts Heath Road, on February 22/23 from 10am to 5.30pm.
