Emma: one of the youngest to take advantage of Help to Buy at Silverhind

First time buyer Emma Mevo (22) has just bought her first home in Chigwell, Essex.

With rising prices while wages stay about the same – it’s not the easiest time to enter London market, so many first-time buyers need to look further.

For beauty therapist Emma, buying her first home at Silverhind, Chigwell wasn’t a difficult decision.

She fell in love with the high specification interiors, lateral living spaces, green location not far from London (30 minutes), and the large terrace Silverhind had to offer.

Emma, who previously lived with her parents, commented: “I had been saving up for my first home and I was keen to find somewhere in a good location where I could move straight in. I looked at a few properties in Essex, but Chigwell appealed to me as it is a trendy area with nice restaurants and shops.”

Emma continued: “It was so nice to be able to move straight in with no stress and hassle and I have plenty of space for when friends visit. I never thought I could afford a home with all these extras.”

For cash-flow-conscious first-time buyers, a new build gives peace of mind that you will not have to undertake major works when you move in.

“The sales team at Weston Homes were informative, did not put any pressure on me and gave me a clear description of the layout. It has given me the opportunity to plan ahead.”

Buying while her home was still being built meant Emma could choose her own kitchen units, tiles and fittings before she moved in and make her home truly special.

Emma is one of the 750 (number of completed transactions by January 1st) first time buyers to take advantage of Help to Buy scheme. It has certainly helped many young people find an entry point into the market.

“I only needed a 5 per cent deposit,” she adds. “It has enabled me to buy an apartment that ticks every box. Most importantly, I will be paying less per month for the mortgage on my own apartment rather than wasting money renting in this area.”

Described as ‘the first village out of London’, Chigwell is located a mere 11 and a half miles north east of Charing Cross with easy road access to the M11 and M25. The town is also served by two tube stations, Chigwell and Grange Hill, both on the Central Line and a short walk from the development.
