Moving on up: Redrow helps Ashbourne family hike up property ladder
With the assistance of Redrow Homes East Midlands, the family of five were able to find their dream home easily.
Thankfully the couple didn’t have to look far – as their new property was to be found over the road from their current house at the time, at the our Henmore Gardens development in Ashbourne.
With our Help to Sell scheme, the family were able to move into a brand-new home quickly.
Kate Ellis (37), her partner, and three children moved into Redrow Homes’ family-friendly four-bedroom Cambridge home at Henmore Gardens in early summer, which is the second new-build property the couple has owned.
Kate adds: “Buying a brand-new property was crucial for us, as we have very little time to undertake work or renovations, and after looking at the housing market in the area at the time, we felt a new-build was definitely better value for money for us.”
Kate and her family chose The Cambridge style of home to move into at Henmore Gardens. She explains: “The Cambridge was definitely the right decision for us – it offers us the perfect balance between family life and more ‘grown-up’ spaces, and importantly, was reasonably-priced, too.”
Designed with both practicality and style at its core, The Cambridge is filled with all of the latest features that the modern family could need, while the contemporary, elegant interiors mean home-owners can enjoy them in luxury.
Kate concludes: “We love our house, and are thrilled to be living at Henmore Gardens; it’s over the road from our old house, so is perfect for the children, as they have their friends around them, and we have our friends around us. We couldn’t be happier.”
In addition, the couple used our Help to Sell scheme. Set up to make moving house hassle-free, Help to Sell is designed to remove the stress out of selling. Redrow Homes takes care of the entire process, including valuations, the appointment of an estate agent, and the paperwork – allowing movers to simply focus on the packing.
Buyers can look to move quickly into their ideal Redrow home with Help to Sell, regardless of the type of home they are selling and the relative value of their current property to the price of their new Redrow Home. As such, our Help to Sell scheme can benefit those who want to upsize, downside or simply step sideways.
In addition to our Help to Sell scheme, those looking to move to Henmore Gardens in Ashbourne could also take advantage of the government-backed Help to Buy scheme, which has already helped over 150,000 people purchase their own home.
Using the Help to Buy scheme means people only need a deposit of five percent. Buyers can then borrow 20 percent of the purchase price in the form of an equity loan, meaning movers have access to more affordable interest rates typically associated with a 25 percent deposit.
To find out more about the government-backed Help to Buy scheme, house-hunters in Ashbourne are being invited to attend a free event at Henmore Gardens on Saturday 7th September.
Experts will be on hand to guide house buyers through the process of purchasing a home and advise on how to move up the property ladder with ‘Help to Buy at our East Midlands development on Wyaston Road from 10am until 5:30pm. Those who stop by can also take advantage of a free assessment with an Independent Financial Advisor.
