‘Help to Buy’ event at Waterside, Preston with 5% deposit paid*

January 2020

You may have heard about our high specification, solidly built homes, but we appreciate that you might want to know more about them. And, just as importantly, how to buy one.

On Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 February, we are delighted to be hosting a ‘Help to buy’ event at Waterside in Cottam, Preston. Join us from 10.30am – 5.30pm and allow us to show you how you can make your buying journey simple using the Government’s Help to Buy scheme.

Whatever stage of the journey you’re at – whether you’re saving for your deposit, renting, have a house to sell or downsizing – you’ll find all of the information you need at our ‘Help to Buy’ event at our popular development in Cottam, Preston.

Our Sales team will take you through the home buying process and help match customers with their perfect property. There will also be an opportunity to learn more about the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme.

The Help to Buy scheme gives customers the chance to purchase with only a 5% deposit and 75% mortgage. The remaining 20% is covered by an equity loan, which is interest free for five years and it can be paid back at any time or upon the sale of the home.

An independent financial advisor will also be on hand to talk you through your options to help get you moving – whatever your circumstances. With so many choices and options for mortgages, it’s important to know exactly what would suit you best.

With a range of apartments, three, four and five-bedroom homes currently available from £98,000*, there’s a dream home for everyone:

Two-bedroom apartments – the open plan living, dining and kitchen area offers plenty of space for living and entertaining. Some of the apartments have French doors with Juliette balconies really bringing the outdoors in. As well as two double bedrooms, the apartment has a family bathroom and en-suite to the master bedroom. The property also has the more practical aspects of storage and parking included too.

Hereford – this beautiful four-bedroom townhouse is split across three floors. Downstairs the kitchen/dining area has a feature bay window at the front of the home, the spacious lounge spans the width of the back of the property with French doors leading to the paved patio and turfed garden. Three bedrooms and the main bathroom are found on the first floor. The master bedroom with en-suite spans the length of the second floor and features a dormer window to the front and a skylight window above the dressing area at the back.

Externally there is a block paved driveway to the front of the property, and at the back there is a fully turfed garden with a paved patio and fencing with access gate.

For reservations taken at the “Help to Buy” event, Story Homes is offering a further incentive of 5% deposit paid*, which is available for a limited time only (subject to plot).

Story Homes’ Sales Manager Clare Wilson, said: “Our ‘Help to Buy’ event will be a fantastic opportunity for customers to find out more about our homes available and speak to experts in new home mortgages, as well as our Sales team who can share information about the incentives we have available on selected home as well as Help to Buy which can make the move in to home ownership more affordable.

“We have a range of homes available from apartments to five-bedroom homes, so there is something for everyone at Waterside.”
