Buying your first home is a great feeling. It's one of the best feelings you’ll have, up there with your first kiss, your first date. A place to call your own is special. It offers security, a safe place to come home to, a place to relax with friends, have a party, sleep in, paint the walls red if that’s your favourite colour. There’s no place like home and no place better than your own home.
We’ve been designing and building first homes for over 25 years and we understand that quality and service are really important when you’re buying your first home. You want the reassurance that your home is built to the highest standards and will last. Each home we build undergoes rigorous inspections by the National Home Builders Council (NHBC) at different stages of its build and several inspections from our own quality inspectors. Only when a home passes each inspection can it be completed, ready for you to move into. Quality is very important to us.
When it’s your first time, you may not be familiar with the jargon, the process and the steps you need to take to buy your home and move in. We’ve got that covered for you. We understand that arranging a mortgage, finding the right solicitor and knowing what to do next isn’t easy when its your first time. Our team are here to help. Our Independent Financial Advisor can arrange your mortgage for you. As a specialist for new homes, they have access to mortgages that may not be available on the High Street and can give you plenty of guidance on the best mortgage option to suit you, whatever your circumstances. We can recommend a solicitor too and as part of our First Home Plan, you’ll receive £1,000 towards your fees. We make buying easy too. See our Step by Step by Step guide so you know what happens at each stage of buying a home and remember we’re always here to answer questions and help you.
