Homebuilder urges second steppers to remember benefits of Help to Buy

Gloucestershire homebuyers looking to move up the property ladder are being urged to consider the government-backed Help to Buy scheme, which isn’t just for first time buyers.

Five star housebuilder David Wilson Homes currently has the Help to Buy scheme available on selected homes across the county to ensure each buyer’s move goes as smoothly as possible.

Help to Buy was launched nearly six years ago and allows buyers to purchase a new home with just a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage. The remaining 20% is funded by an equity loan, interest-free for the first five years and repayable on the sale on the home.

Louise Ware, sales director at David Wilson Homes, said: “Second steppers may typically find it harder to move up or across the property ladder because of having the burden of having to sell their own home, as well as getting their finances together for the move.

“We want to remind them that they can benefit from moving schemes such as Help to Buy, which they may think is just for first time buyers.

“The scheme provides an excellent aid to people who may think they will struggle and can end up saving them thousands on a new home that may have been otherwise out of reach.

“Our developments across the county are all ideally placed for growing families and people looking to upsize, with a good selection of local amenities and transport links near each of our sites.”

David Wilson Homes currently has properties available in Gloucestershire at Sunningend View, Rosewood Grange and Great Oldbury.
