Help at the double for Haslington Home Buyers

Homebuyers won’t have to think twice about buying a new property near Crewe thanks to a pair of incentives.

Niche developer Elan Homes is offering both Help to Buy and EasyMove at Vicarage Fields in the village of Haslington.

Help to Buy enables purchasers to snap up a brand new home with a deposit of just 5%. With an equity loan provided by the Government for up to 20% of the purchase price, homebuyers then only need a 75% mortgage and should be able to access more competitive rates.

The scheme isn’t exclusive to first time buyers. It can potentially be used by those moving up the housing ladder, providing they’ve sold their current property subject to contract. Elan can assist with that via its EasyMove initiative.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, explains: “People still tend to see Help to Buy as a means of enabling first time buyers to make that all-important move into homeownership. But while it’s been invaluable to many people starting out, it’s also a great way for homeowners to move to somewhere bigger. To be eligible they’ll need to have sold the property they want to move from subject to contract and that’s where our EasyMove service comes in.

“We’ll instruct local estate agents to market the customer’s home to secure a quick sale on the open market so that they can purchase a new home with Help to Buy and we’ll even pay the agent’s fees on completion.”

Current availability at Vicarage Fields includes a choice of four-bedroom detached homes priced from £249,995.

Using Help to Buy a Southwold style property can be secured with a deposit of less than £14,000. The equity loan scheme reduces the cost of this family home from £274,995 to an initial outlay of £219,996.

The Southwold offers 1,283 sq ft of accommodation including a lounge at the front with feature bay window, open plan kitchen and dining room to the rear, plus a utility and cloakroom.

The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite, leaving the remaining three bedrooms to share the family bathroom.

Located in the beautiful Cheshire village of Haslington, properties at Vicarage Fields enjoy a rural outlook, with many looking onto farmland and tranquil meadows. The bustling towns of Crewe and Sandbach are both within easy reach, with Crewe train station offering connections to Liverpool, Manchester and beyond.
