Property advice - Climb the property ladder with the aid of the Help to Buy scheme

PUBLISHED: 12:00 29 August 2013




An idyllic home in the picture perfect market town of Easingwold is within easy reach of homebuyers using Help to Buy. Redrow’s Oaklands development is popular with homebuyers thanks to the superb offering of traditional looking homes full of character on the outside, combined with contemporary features and open plan, convivial living spaces inside.

These beautiful new homes in a village full of old world charm are ideal for young professionals, families and downsizers alike. Delightful Easingwold has everything residents could want and need – good local shops, award-winning eateries, opportunities to explore the great outdoors and easy access to York.

Oaklands features a choice of three and four-bedroom detached new homes, with current open market prices from £259,950 – or as little as £207,960 for those using Help to Buy. There is also a new release of four two-bedroom apartments from £147,950, or £118,360 using Help to Buy.

Customers may only need a five per cent deposit and a mortgage for 75 per cent of the property’s value to make Oaklands their home. The 20 per cent balance is covered by an equity loan in this Government-backed scheme.

Patsy Aicken, sales director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire), says: ‘The beauty of Help to Buy is that you don’t need a big deposit and it can be used by people

moving up the property ladder as well as those buying their first home. Our traditional looking New Heritage Collection homes in Easingwold were already popular – Help to Buy has made them even more so.’ The equity loan is interest free for the first five years and can be repaid when the purchaser has more funds available or comes to resell.

Redrow’s homes boast wow-factor kitchens with top brand name appliances and elegant bathrooms with quality fixtures and fittings.

A taste of these is provided in the fully furnished showhomes, open daily from 10am to 5.30pm.
