Weston homes helps first-time buyers get on the ladder in Maidstone with their unique, worry-free First-Time SecureBuy scheme

Springfield Park

First-time buyers can secure a stylish apartment off-plan at Springfield Park in Maidstone by Weston Homes, with their First-time SecureBuy (FTSB) initiative. Weston Homes is dedicated to providing high quality apartments at fair prices and their FTSB scheme is another tool to help people buy their first home.

Purchasing a first home is an exciting but sometimes stressful time, which is why Weston Homes’ unique FTSB scheme gives security and peace of mind, with a full refund of the reservation fee and exchange deposit should a buyer’s circumstances change prior to legal completion, subject to terms and conditions. The FTSB scheme allows first-time buyers to reserve a home off-plan for just a £500 reservation fee, only requires a 5% exchange deposit and then, six months before build completion, the buyer can apply for a mortgage. Should the value of the property increase in the time between reservation and build completion, buyers will only pay the price agreed on the day they reserved their property.

First-time buyers using the FTSB scheme do not need to worry about losing their hard-earned savings if their circumstances change when reserving their first home. Weston Homes understands the financial commitment that is being made and is here to help buyers through their purchasing journey. The many first-time buyers that have benefited from the FTSB scheme when purchasing their new home are testament to this.

First-time buyer Andrea Komodroumou, who has reserved a two-bedroom apartment with Weston Homes said:

“There’s no way I could ever have dreamt of owning a property without something like the Weston Homes First-time SecureBuy scheme. I have wanted something to call my own for years now but it is such an extremely difficult task for first-time buyers of my generation, so schemes like this are instrumental in helping people like myself get that first step on the ladder.”

To apply for a mortgage on a newbuild home, the property needs to be within six months of build completion. Weston Homes normally launch newbuild developments 12-24 months before build completion allowing first-time buyers to make the most of off-plan prices. This gives buyers extra time to save and be ready to move into their new home, giving them peace of mind at a time that can otherwise be stressful. Weston Homes’ sales teams are available to support and guide first-time buyers through the process helping to take out any worry along the way.

The government-backed Help to Buy scheme is also available at Springfeld Park, subject to terms and conditions, enabling first-time buyers to buy their home with a deposit of 5% and a Help to Buy equity loan of up to 20% on selected apartments, further adding to the ease for first-time buyers to get onto the property ladder with Weston Homes.

Located on the banks of the picturesque River Medway, Springfield Park is a collection of beautifully designed homes in Maidstone, Kent. The construction of the 502 apartment development, coincides with the £3 million regeneration of Maidstone’s town centre, as it becomes a highly sought-after place to live and work. Weston Homes are pioneering the way with the Creswick building in the development now the tallest tower in Kent which benefits from far reaching views.

Springfield Park is breathing new life into previously derelict land on the banks of the River Medway, a historically important body of water for Maidstone and Kent.

Suzanne Aplin, Group Sales & Marketing Director at Weston Homes says:

“Our FTSB scheme gives first-time buyers a chance to buy, off-plan, one of our fantastic apartments at Springfield Park. This is a great opportunity that allows first-time buyers to get on the market at a stage in the build of the development that they would not normally be able to, making the most of the savings from buying at today’s prices, rather than at market values in 1-2 year’s time. Buying a new build property is a dream for many would-be first-time buyers and our FTSB scheme allows them to reach that dream now, taking away some of the worry that can come with buying a first home.”
