Michael and Michelle Smith were on their way home after viewing older properties for sale in the Moira area. Feeling slightly disheartened by the selection they’d seen, they happened across Peveril Homes’ Woodcroft development in the heart of this village within the National Forest on the Derbyshire-Leicestershire border. On a whim, they decided to pop in!
“It was the best decision we ever made!” says Michael. “We’d never considered a brand new home as an option, but we met Darren, Peveril’s Sales Executive at Woodcroft and he immediately welcomed us and put us at ease. He gave us lots of information about the development, the houses and the local area, so we decided to view one of the 3-bed semi-detached new properties.”
Michael and Michelle were impressed by the quality feel and finish of the home, and particularly liked the size of the garden. It was at this point that Darren highlighted the possibility of the couple buying through the Government’s Help to Buy Scheme. With Help to Buy, the Government lends you up to 20% of the cost of your newly built home, so you only need a 5% cash deposit and a 75% mortgage to make up the rest. And, you won’t be charged loan fees on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning your home.
“We find that a lot of people are under the misconception that Help to Buy is for first-time buyers only,” says Peveril Homes Sales Executive Darren Jones. “But we’re always keen to highlight that it’s a scheme that’s also ideal for those looking to move up the ladder into a more spacious home.”
“Once Darren had explained Help to Buy, we decided to look at one of Woodcroft’s 4-bed properties and we just fell in love,” adds Michelle. “We never imagined a 4-bed new home would be within our budget, but we contacted the New Homes Mortgage Group (NHMG), and within minutes we had been advised that this would be a possible option for us.”
Michael and Michelle moved to Woodcroft in November and enjoyed their first Christmas in their new home.
“We can honestly say that if it wasn’t for Darren and the Peveril team we would never have considered this property an option for us,” says Michael. “I admit that I can be quite a picky person and a little impatient at times, but Darren was always there being positive to reassure me everything would be fine and give me the answers to my queries. I’d like to say a big thank you to Peveril for making the process as stress-free as possible. We know that any new neighbours will be in safe hands with Darren and the team guiding them through their purchase.”
