High demand for new homes in the Hamilton area of Leicester means buyers are already looking ahead to spring, but those who act now could find they’re able to move before the year is out.
Redrow’s Hamilton Gardens development is now a well-established neighbourhood and very much somewhere people want to live. New homes are selling fast, with the latest releases scheduled for completion in May 2017.
Some buyers, however, could find they’re able to move much sooner - even those who are still saving a deposit for their first home.
There are some three-bedroom Evesham style properties that will be ready to move into this year and, thanks to Help to Buy, they could be secured with a 5% deposit.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), explains: “Demand for homes at Hamilton Gardens and nearby Hamilton Park remains strong, but while many of the properties just released won’t be ready to move into until spring we do have a few homes that will soon be build complete.
“The lay out of the three-bedroom Evesham means it’s a great starter home, offering the perfect solution for a young person or couple looking to make that crucial first step onto the housing ladder. Factor in Help to Buy and it’s an even more attractive prospect. Someone buying in this way should only need a 5% deposit which works out at less than £10,000.”
The three-bedroom Evesham at Hamilton Gardens features a kitchen to the front of the property, with combined kitchen and dining room opening out on to the rear garden. A cloakroom completes the ground floor, while upstairs the master bedroom boasts an en-suite, leaving the family bathroom to serve the remaining two bedrooms.
A three-bedroom Evesham, on the market at £195,950 can be purchased for an initial outlay of £156,760 with Help to Buy. The lower price includes a deposit of £9,797 (5%) and mortgage of £146,963 (75%). The remaining £39,130 (20%) is covered by the equity loan, which is interest free for five years.
