Join us at our first time buyer event at Waterside

July 2019

Feel at home at our First time buyer event at Waterside on Saturday 20 July.

Whatever stage of the journey you’re at – whether you’re still saving for your deposit or looking for the best mortgage deals – you’ll find all of the information you need at our helpful first time buyer event at our popular development in Preston.

An independent financial advisor will be on hand to assess buyers’ finances, while Story Homes’ sales executives will be able to help match customers with their perfect property. There will also be opportunities to learn more about the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme.

The homes are Stamp Duty exempt for first time buyers and are eligible for Help to Buy, giving 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.

We have a range of homes available for first time buyers – from apartments to three and four-bedroom homes available from £142,500:

Two-bedroom apartments feature an open plan kitchen and lounge area which spans the length of the property with a Juliet balcony. There are two spacious bedrooms with the master having an en-suite with a walk-in shower. The apartment is also fitted with an intercom and benefits from convenient courtyard parking.

Hereford – a beautiful 4-bedroom semi-detached townhouse arranged over three floors and offering excellent accommodation with convenient driveway parking. The lounge is found at the rear of the property with French doors leading to the garden and an open plan kitchen/dining area with lovely bay window is at the front. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, storage cupboard and a contemporary family bathroom. On the second floor is the superb master bedroom with en-suite shower and feature dormer window.

Story Homes is offering a further incentive of £1000 towards legal fees and flooring fitted throughout for reservations made during the first time buyer event and for a limited time only and subject to plot.

Story Homes’ Sales Manager Clare Wilson, said: “We have a range of homes available from two-bedroom apartments to three and four-bedroom homes, so there is something for everyone.

“Our first time buyer event will be a fantastic opportunity for buyers to find out more about our homes available and speak to experts in new home mortgages, as well as our Sales Executives who can share information out 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.

“Understanding mortgage rates and which mortgage product or lender is right for you can be confusing, particularly if you’re a first time buyer. We’re offering a one-stop shop at Waterside with experts who can assess visitors’ finances and the level of deposit they would need to secure a home here; if they will pay Stamp Duty and explain how Help to Buy works and strip down the buying process to make it simple and straight forward.”

“We want to arm our customers with enough knowledge to empower them to be able to buy their first home.”

Waterside is a beautiful development of apartments, three and four-bedroom homes, and is ideally located in Cottam on the outskirts of Preston.
