Successful event as first time buyers bag new homes at Cwm Celyn

First time buyers from across the region have been getting a helping hand onto the property ladder thanks to a special event at Barratt HomesCwm Celyn in Tonna.

The five star housebuilder welcomed guests to the exciting new development, and provided potential buyers with all the information and advice they needed to make that first leap into the housing market.

“This was a hugely successful event – because we were able to help those seeking new homes but who felt they were unable to buy because of financial constraints,” said sales director, Richard Lawson. “The doors to Cwm Celyn are wide open, with a number of beautiful three bedroom homes currently available here.

“Owning a home is something many people aspire to – but it is tricky for some to finance that first step. At Cwm Celyn, we are delighted to offer Help to Buy Wales, which is designed to assist people in overcoming that challenge.”


Help to Buy Wales

Help to Buy Wales is available on all properties at Cwm Celyn, up to the value of £300,000. It means buyers can become owners with just a 5% deposit. The Government provides a loan of up to 20% of the value of the home – which is interest free for five years – so only a 75% mortgage is needed.

“Armed with a wealth of information about buying their first home, many of those who attended our event were taken by our three bedroom Maidstone and Buchanan house designs,” added Richard. “We’re expecting a busy time ahead as our guests complete the buying process – and they will be assisted throughout by our expert team here.”

The Maidstone and Buchanan homes are both available with Help to Buy Wales – priced from £186,995 and £211,995 respectively.


A great place to call home

With a collection of beautiful three and four bedroom homes built for both families and first time buyers in mind, Cwm Celyn in Tonna is a great place to call home, in the heart of the valley with the River Neath nearby – and surrounded by countryside. Commuting is easy with excellent links to the M4, giving easy access to Swansea, Bridgend and Cardiff.
